Shinji Ikari was at peace.
To those who knew him, this simple statement would have been unimaginable. Nevertheless, he was at peace.
His apartment was quiet, except for the low, melodious sounds of a cello that were coming from one of the rooms. All the rooms in the apartment were empty save for one, currently occupied by the pilot of Evangelion Unit 01. His roommates were either out or tucked away in their places of rest; in one's case, a refrigerator. So, with no one to interrupt him, Shinji had decided to take out his cello and play.
