Summer vacation is going to begin tomorrow. I wonder how things are going to happen this summer
Will it be fun? Don't know, maybe I should just hang out with Yuki-kun. Maybe we could do karaoke with Kagura-chan too. Hmm
Today is the first day of Summer. No classes eh? Hmmm
I picked up a newspaper. I looked at the lower left corner of the second page. "Oooh
" Pen Pals
My eyes flashed with excitement. Should I try one? Could be fun, and a new friend would be great. I guess I should pick a person here in the list then.
Kyo. Kyo. Seems like someone interesting
I'll try it. I started to write a letter and mailed it.
Konnichiwa, My name is Tohru. I saw your name in the list of Pen Pals in the newspaper I read today. Don't worry, I'm just a girl looking for someone to have friendly chitchat with. Hope we can become good pen pals, ne? Please reply, arigato gozaimasu. ^__^
It's been 2 days since I wrote that letter to
Kyo. I wonder what his personality is like. DINGDONG!
??? I opened the door, it's the mail man. "A letter for you miss." He said, with a plain boring face. "Ah, Arigato." I bowed and closed the door. I opened it. From
Konnichiwa! My name's Sohma Kyo, thank you for your letter. You know, I had been waiting for a pen pal for weeks! Finally someone sent me a letter. Hope we can be friends. Don't worry; I'm also just a guy looking for someone to share my thoughts with, too. Hope you write soon. I'll be happy to write you lots of letters, Tohru-san.
I fell silent. After a few moments
"KYAAAAAAAAAAA! Kyo is a guy!" Then, kaa-san yelled from upstairs. "Tohru! Keep it down! I'm taking a nap!" "G-gomen
!" I giggled silently. This is going to be fun.
We have been writing letters to each other for almost two weeks now. I just found out that we both love anime and we both hate Math. Also, our favorite part of school is lunch break! He lives in Sapporo. So fun
I'm so glad we have common interests! I pulled out another paper from my shelf and began writing a letter.
Hi Kyo, we've been writing each other letters for almost 2 weeks now, and you are really an interesting and fun guy. We're friends right? I'm so glad to meet a new person and become friends with him. Hope you write to me again soon!
I mailed the letter.
4 days passed. Finally the letter arrived! I opened it and read it.
Hi Tohru! I'm glad that you're my friend too, you're
making my summer fun and worthwhile. I
actually want to know how you look like. I'm sure you're a beautiful person, inside and outside. Maybe we could begin by describing each other, If you're ok with that
but please don't have the wrong ideas about me ok? I'm just
interested. Well, hope you reply soon.
I feel like I'm floating in the clouds today with my face hot and red. I'm starting to have this soft, fluffy feeling in my chest. I feel motivated somehow. I wrote another letter:
Hi Kyo, I'm really interested in how you look too! Ok then, I have long brown hair and blue eyes. Your turn to describe yourself ok? ^___^ Take care.
I waited for his reply.
I waited for 2 days. The letter came! I'm so excited right now. I opened it.
Wow, you look somehow like a princess. Maybe I should call you, Oujo-sama. It suits you
Haha, I'm cute. Just Joking, I have orange hair and dark orange, nearly red, eyes(Hey, in anime it's normal!>_<). I look kinda like a cat
sorry to disappoint you if you were expecting something else. Haha. Well that's it
nothing more to describe. Hope we can meet in person. Write to you soon.
I replied immediately. I really love talking, I mean, writing to Kyo.
Hehe, I'm sure you're a kawaii neko
you know I hope we can meet in person so we can know about each other better. You're a fun and cute guy. Yeah, I wanna know more about you too Kyo. Reply soon.
The next two nights, I kept thinking about Kyo. I wanted to know what he looks like. Oujo-sama eh? Sounds sweet
I wonder what's going to happen tomorrow
I woke up blinded by the rays of the sun cutting through the window. It's already this late?! What happened last night?
Is it because of
Oh! The letter must be here! I ran downstairs and opened the door quickly, as fast as lightning. The mailman stood by the door, stunned with his finger pointed at the doorbell. Haha, I'm sure he was about to ring the doorbell when I opened the door. "Expecting the letter Honda-san?" He laughed. "Ah, hai hai
" I smiled, a shy one. I ran upstairs and sat on my bed. I opened the letter excitedly.
Tohru! Good news! Me and my parents are going to go to Nagasaki! You live in Nagasaki, right?! I can't wait to go there! We are going to leave in about four days, so about next week, we should be there in Nagasaki. We're going to ride the Sapporo airlines. I'm so excited! I want to see your place and
I want to meet up with you Tohru. Well, I guess that's it. I'll just
see you around! See you Tohru.
I can't breathe. My heart is beating like crazy, thump thump thump thump
Is this even real? I'm finally going to meet Kyo.
I feel so happy that we're finally going to meet! I want to see you too Kyo, I want to see you as soon as possible too! Hope you have a safe trip! I
I can't wait to meet you. See you later Kyo.
I covered my face with a pillow and as loud as I can, I squealed. I Can't wait to meet him.
Five days have passed. I'm so excited. For the past few days, I was jumping all over the room, fantasizing of what we will do together. Sometimes I day dreamed of what will happen when we meet. I even practiced the things I will say when we talk. I really can't wait. I feel so
I ran downstairs to eat breakfast. Okaa-san and Otou-san were watching tv and drinking coffee at the same time. "Ohayo
" I yawned with a smile on my face. They both greeted back. I stood beside kaa-san. "Itadakimasu
" I was about to drink my milk when I looked at the screen. My glass of milk fell on the floor, making a loud CRASH. The smile on my face faded. I felt the world crash around me, burning to the ground. On the news, it says that a plane heading to Nagasaki from Sapporo airlines
crashed. No one survived. No one
survived the crash.
It can't be
"NOOOO!!!!!" I screamed at the top of my lungs. "T-Tohru
!" Okaa-san and Otou-san stood up. I fell to my knees, tears strolling down my face. "K-Kyo
" I stood up quickly and ran upstairs to my room. I closed the door shut. I lied on my bed, hugged myself and kept on crying. "Kyo
" I mumbled. Why
? Why now when I finally realized that
I love you?
Suki dayo Kyo-kun.
See you later.
