“….." Shiki gave no response towards Neku’s initial remark, given that she still felt on edge about the whole noiseless street. However, his subsequent response did finally reach that redhead of hers. “You would usually hang around this place?" Shiki repeated his words, but in a softer tone, before fixing her eyes on the wall Neku pointed out.
“Oh wow, that’s too cute!" she gasped, widely smiling and looking straight at the large cat plastered on the mural. "CAT really is creative, isn’t he?" For all Shiki knew, this was just one of CAT’s creative works that was hidden in the Udagawa back streets. She didn’t know the other meanings behind the mural and— given that she was a cat lover— her attention was immediately grabbed by the black cat which almost looked like Mr.Mew. Except for the obvious few features like eyebrows, bat wings, star eyes, and…..whiskers.
“Yeah, that’s what I just—" Though before Neku could finish his phrase, Shiki had interrupted again, fascination with the mural obviously more important than what he had to say. '…Ugh'
“Of course he is. You know any other artists that are all over Shibuya? Plus, this is one of his best pieces, too." Maybe Neku was being biased, but most of CAT’s other works weren’t quite like this, even though the quality never seemed to falter between pieces.
He probably shouldn’t have been surprised by Shiki’s initial reaction, either. Udagawa wasn’t exactly home to heavy foot traffic and the billboard ads common around the city didn’t really give CAT the justice he deserved like seeing one of his murals up close did, in Neku’s opinion.
