On The Night When The Stars And Flowers Fall chapter 1

Prologue

Ten years ago, on Tanabata.

My mother gave me a ruby gem.

She said, “This is the jewel of July. Take good care of it.”

I was angry at the ruby that my mother had bought without my permission.

“Why do you buy something like this! I just want a toy!”

I don’t know what rubies are worth.

I don’t even know if they are expensive.

I’d rather have a toy I can play with.

Mother was disgusted.

“You can have this gem.

If you don’t want it, you can give it to someone else.

Or you can just throw it away.”

“All right. Go buy me some toys.

“Next time. Anyway, today is the Tanabata Festival. I have to get ready.”

I got ready and headed for the Tanabata Festival with my father.

There was a large bamboo branch on the high school grounds.

I decided to write my wish on a strip of paper.

“What should I write?”

Dad had already written his.

“Dad. What did you write?’

“May my income be stable.”

What’s “income”?

“You don’t need to know.”

After about five minutes of thinking about what to write.

I wrote “I want a toy.”

It’s the best wish I’ve ever made.

Fireworks will be going off soon.

I heard that if you wish to the fireworks, your wish will come true.

“Look. Look, Kouki. Aren’t the stars beautiful?”

“They’re pretty.’

“Listen, Kouki. When we die, we turn into stars.’

“Become a star?”

Become a star. I didn’t know what that meant.

“That’s what they say.”

“Do we get to choose that?’

“You can choose. If you strongly desire.”

“So I’ll be Hikoboshi.”

“Altair.”

“Altair?”

“That’s the name of Hikoboshi’s star. Vega is Orihime.”

“Is that so..”

While we were talking about this.

As we were talking, the countdown began.

I couldn’t stop my excitement.

“Three, two, one.”

“0.”

I heard a whoosh.

Boom!

Fireworks bloomed in the night sky.

“Wow, it’s beautiful.”

I moved forward to get a closer look.

The next thing I knew, I had lost sight of my father.

“Oooooh!”

I heard a voice crying from somewhere.

I went in the direction of the voice, and there was

I went in the direction of the voice, and there was a girl about my age.

“What’s wrong?”

“My mom is gone.”

I didn’t know there was someone just like me at …….

I wanted to help her more than the stars and fireworks.

I was trying to figure out how to make her stop crying.

I pulled a ruby out of my bag.

“Do you want this?”

The moment she saw it, she smiled and said, “I want it!”

She smiled.

“You can have it.”

She gladly picked it up.

“Look at the sky.”

She looked up at the sky.

Stars and flowers were falling.

My wish is ……

I want a toy.

That’s a silly thing to wish for.

I want to make a wish for someone else.

I said my wish out loud.

She looked at me and smiled.

“Thank you. But you have to say your wish without saying aloud anything.”

“Really?”

We laughed at each other.

“I’m glad I met you, too. I got a jewel.”

“That’s good.”

“I wish you the best, too.

She wished aloud, too.

“Say your wishes silently.”

“I think I just heard that.’

I turned my head away and faked it.

I have a feeling we’ll meet somewhere.

“Bye, bye. I’ll see you soon.”

The fireworks were over and we parted ways.

My father arrived and I was able to go home.

Is she safe?

Looking up at the sky, Vega and Altair were shining.
