Dark clouds hung so low over the city that it felt like one could reach them by raising one's hands to the sky. Lee Man stood next to the window, watching the raindrops slide down the window, leaving their transient trails. The clock on the wall ticked as if in rhythm with the rain outside. Time was passing slowly inside the quiet room.
"5:30 pm, it's about to call it a day." Lee Man stretched lazily. She moved the plant on the windowsill back into the room and walked to her table. She took the plaque that declared the building to be the government's marriage registry office into the drawer. As if that was not clear enough, the large words on the wall read—Administrative Office for the Marriage License Registry.
"With the rain pouring, I doubt there's anyone coming." Lee Man hummed a ditty to herself as she started to clean. She was the only one left at the office; her colleague who took the table next to hers had already got off work fifteen minutes earlier.
