I never noticed it before. Not in the months I'd lived and worked in that area. Not in the hundreds of cab rides I'd taken past that very spot, and strangely, no one ever thought to mention it. On that day I decided to walk to the office, choosing fresh air over the stifled, hours-old sickness of the backseat of a cab or the cattle compartments of the local buses. The sun was damnably high and bright already, and that is why I chose to walk Lantern Lane.
