    Summary

    He can’t remember exactly how old he was when Halley’s Comet blazed through the sky, but he was old enough to at least understand that what he saw was, for most people, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He remembers the blinding missile-like blur of pure light that streaked across the inky black sky, the feathery trails of starlight that followed along behind her as she tore through the galaxy, the way she flickered and winked as she disappeared beyond the horizon.

    And he remembers his mother telling him, in a voice he recognized even then to be warbling with reverence and emotion, how lucky he is to be among those lucky few who will get to witness Halley’s blazing trail twice in one lifetime.

    Summary

    Makoto gets caught up in Sousuke's vengeance against Haru with unexpected consequences.

    Disclaimer: The title is derived from the Belle and Sebastian song "Loneliness of the Middle Distance Runner" off their "Jonathan David" EP.

    [I've edited the story since I first published it, adding a song to every chapter to define the mood. This will be a continuing theme for the entire work.]
