The sudden appearance of two mysterious girls
saves Rudy from a certain beating.
He is to be their Little Mushroom.
The girl is asleep.
The boyfriend is offering her.
Rudy is spellbound.
It is so beautiful. It is so far away,
but it is moving closer and his hand
at the end of his lengthening arm
moves further from his body,
closer to the object.
Rudy's attention is not his to give. It is taken forcefully from him.
