The DS Life: A corner to play in

The DS Life is a weekly feature in which we scour the known world for narrative images of Nintendo's handhelds and handheld gamers. If you have a photo and a story to match it with, send both to thedslife at dsfanboy dot com.

This week's scene is taken from a winter afternoon in Osaka, Japan. The boy's parents are shopping for gifts for the holiday season, so he finds a secluded spot to wait while they wander the department store. He sits on the tiled floor, right next to the fire extinguisher stand, where no one will disturb or trip over him.

Cold seeps through the window behind him, but the slight chill actually feels refreshing on the back of his neck. He flips open his GBA SP and continues where he left off during the subway ride here, too engrossed to look up at the people walking by, too rapt to even pause his game before reaching for a sip from his drink.
