Destination : Unknown (5)   (a short story)


Toshi dug his phone out of his bag.  He would call his office and maybe figure this out.

He snuck a glance at the policeman, and to Toshi's relief, he had turned and was walking away...

Pressing numbers onto the keypad onscreen... waiting.  
A recording: " We are sorry.  The number you have dialed is not valid."                           

He stared at the phone.  Then pressed another key.
" Telephone assistance..."
" Hi, could you please get me the number of Kimura Hiroaki..."
" One moment..."

A recording played and the tinny computer voice said, "No listing for Kimura Hiroaki,,,"                                   (G.K)
