A short story about an encounter in an abstract world, stylized as the paintings of Giorgio De Chrico. A Man is going to meet A Woman in abstract flying city. Will the lovers meet each other? A Man is trying very hard, like a parkour practitioner, climbing up on the buildings. One unguarded moment is enough to make him lose his senses. And his chance.
