55 Picture of a red Chinese lantern
Jason stared around him as the parade passed by. For all the time he’d spent running around Chinatown, because he lived close by and it was somewhere to go, he’d never thought about being present while its residents participated in their holiday. He knew that plenty of people did it, attended New Years’ celebrations or what not, but he had a few other things on his mind.
Still, he had to admit it was kind of nice, the glow of the crimson lanterns against the night sky creating an ethereal glow. Their beauty took his mind off his dying mother.
Jason Vilnas. Original character.
