I was thinking for a while about mandarin oranges. Those are round and glistening. The stalk on the top is like a green star. sour scent fills my body from the inside of my nose. Instantly, my chest shrinked, then my body became numb. I look at my hands. He used to put a mandarin orange on my hands. Then, he stoked my head. I was so delighted, so glad that I cried squeezing the mandarin. I still look at my hands. There's no mandarin oranges in my hands. Now, what I'm grabbing is a hard, cold metal bat. It's new so, It was still in transparent packaging film. But it's not for sale anymore. Because I spoiled it. Now it's july. The sun is hot. Mandarin oranges are out of season. Why did I start thinking about it? At this time, why am I thinking about mandarins?
