Outside, he looked to see if it was still dark and stopped.

Everything was ... different.

It was a bit lighter outside, but where was the Lawson where he often bought a bottle of green tea ?  Where it usually stood, there was a flower shop.  And where was the curry shop ?  The UFJ bank ?  The Tokyu Market ?  There was only a drab mansion, a group of twisted-lookin trees and an odd-shaped green building.

Frowning, he looked back at the exit.  In his absent-mindedness he must have ... but no, this was C-3, the exit that led to his office building.

And what about the offices of Mi-Lab Pharmaceuticals ?  Usually, he could see the grey concrete of it intruding over the First Kitchen sign.  But... no First Kitchen and no office building.

His heart drumming in his chest, Toshi stepped out into the street ignoring the rain.  What could this be ?  It was the right station and the right exit, but everything was wrong.

He looked around quickly.  He would ask someone.  There were only a few people darting through the rain, their heads buried under umbrellas, and that was strange too.
How could there be so few people on a weekday morning in Nihonbashi ?                           (G.K)
