Requiem in August
I was left alone, and I kept staring at her back as she disappeared
It was so painful and sad for me
I could do nothing but stay there
It was August when she died
The perfect month to drink lemon soda
Lemon soda・・・・・・ I met her with a lemon soda
She’ll live forever in my heart with the taste of soda

A Woman’s Wish
I am passing by a small shrine in Toba Ichibangai. A young woman was making a wish. I stopped and looked at her. I saw a shadowless deep thought in her pupils.
Then my mood changed. A fresh feeling began to come and go in my chest, a good emotion, pure and clear. I couldn’t put this feeling into words.
I could smell the gentle scent of a woman.
I had a clear desire to ask the woman what she wanted. If I thought I could ask her, then it would become a fantasy. I want to grant the girl’s wish. It is a mysterious emotion.
It seemed impossible to ask a young woman for a wish. I could imagine how much she wanted her love to be fulfilled. I thought to myself, she must be a seductive woman.
I looked out the window over the sea.
I then went to a seafood store. The lobsters in the fish tank were dimly red. When I turn around, the woman is no longer there.
