Summary: He stares out the window when it rains.
He stares out the window when it rains. Alfons wonders where it is he's gotten to. Some long lost time ago, in another world, with different faces and different rules to live by. What it must be like in this mystical Shamballa of his. This paradise without a god.
When it rains, he doesn't belong to him. There's nothing he can do for him. He needs his brother the most then, when the sky opens up and cries out its tears on the people below and he stops their work, looks past him out the window and watches silently as rivlets of water fall down their window.
He stares out the window as if he and the rain share a secret Alfons doesn't know, like two mourners embracing each other while he looks on, a mere spectator, and perhaps an unwelcome one.
"Why do you do this to yourself?" he finally asks his fallen star, his god made manifest. "You know the rain just makes you cry."
He doesn't look away, still staring out the window at the rain. "It should rain at a funeral," is all he says in response.
And he continues to stare out the window when it rains.
