WeWriWar 59 Harajuku Kiss

Hi everyone, and welcome to  Weekend Writing Warriors post and Snippet Sunday.

Last weekend I said that I would be alternating between Demon and Fairy and Harajuku Kiss. I'm not sure how Harajuku Kiss will work for this but anyway, this week's snippet might surprise you.

About Harajuku Kiss 
At times, life can be so depressing. She is walking her usual recovery tour in Harajuku, finishing with a crepe, trying to forget that her boyfriend dumped her once again for the week-end... When the unthinkable happens... A boy stops in front of her in the street and kisses her, in the middle of the street, before running away.
Trying to discover more about him, she is dragged into a dangerous game of mystery. A biologist has been murdered and a deadly virus is on the loose. First suspect: the mysterious Harajuku's stranger. 

Today we start at the very beginning: Meet Kaji. 

Here are my 8 sentences.

The night was darker than Kaji remembered as he sat attached on a wooden chair on the roof of the building, well above the lights of the city. He breathed with a hoarse sound, almost unable to bear the pain caused by every drop of air entering his lungs. How long had he been here? Days? Weeks perhaps. He was still drugged when he woke up here. He would have liked the change if it wasn't so cold. He had convinced himself the city's night lights were the last thing he would see.
