The Kuto’s life was filled with melancholy. Kuto was in New Caledonia, and his buzz haircut made him look like a different person. His hair color was light blonde, and he wore aviator silver eyeglasses. He had a mutton cops, and his silver earring on left lobe shone brightly. He wore a white arabic shirt, which matched well with his light complexion. However, despite all of these physical changes, Kuto’s heart was still the same. He still loved music and art, but he found it difficult to express himself in words. Even though he had many friends in New Caledonia, he felt like they didn’t really understand him.

Kuto often thought about his home back in Japan. He missed the cherry blossoms and the sound of the waves crashing against the shoreline. He even missed his parents arguing sometimes. But most of all, hemissed feeling truly alive. In Japan, everything seemed so much more vibrant and exciting somehow; but here in New Caladonia it all just felt so…bleak by comparison.”
