Tatsumi finds himself actually paying attention to the clock's progress toward five o'clock. Usually the approach of that hour is apparent due to the leaving activities of everyone else, but Tatsumi, while always conscious of the time (for, after all, time is money), works until the work is done. But today he catches himself glancing up every once in a while, just checking to see how close it is to that time.
Maybe he won't show up, he thinks.
Maybe I'm pondering impossibilities, he then thinks.
But it won't do at all if some little incident such as this can, for some reason, throw him. So he sits at his desk, immersed in neatly stacked paperwork, appearing as disinterested and uninvolved in the end-of-the-day activities as ever. And he waits.
