On The Night When The Stars And Flowers Fall chapter 3

Shining Stars in Tokyo

It was the end of April. I was puzzled by the sudden mysterious line.

“Let’s go to Tokyo.”

I don’t know what it means. This is Hiroshima.

It would take about four hours to get to Tokyo.

It would cost me a lot of money.

When and where are we going?

I was full of questions.

“Why?”

“Let’s go to Tokyo for a night and two days to see the stars.”

What’s the point of going all the way to Tokyo to see the stars?

“Why Tokyo?”

“It’s usually fun.”

Apparently, Tokyo is supposed to be fun.

But I was feeling duller than I wanted to go.

We talked for an hour.

I was forced to go to Tokyo.

This was a kind of kidnapping.

But no matter what I said, I knew it was hopeless.

I decided to spend the next two days of Golden Week with Hikari.

Then, the day of the trip.

We met at Onomichi station at 8 in the morning.

I arrived at 7:50 and waited for her.

Ten minutes passed and it was 8:00 a.m., but she still didn’t show up.

I wondered if she had caught a cold. Did she get sick?

Did something urgent come up?

But I was glad for myself.

I really wanted to sleep through the entire Golden Week.

It was 8:10 and I was about to leave.

“Wait a minute”, My shoulders squeezed.

I turned around and saw Hikari coming with a large backpack.

It’s only for two days. She was dressed as if she were going on a week-long trip.

“I was just getting ready and I was late.”

“I waited ten minutes.”

“Then let’s get going.”

She ignored my hassle and headed for the station.

I followed Hikari in disgust.

We boarded the shinkansen and headed for Tokyo.

All the while, we played cards and UNO.

Hikari wasn’t good at mind games like 7-a-side or 51.

So we spent the entire three hours playing Baba.

She was sick of looking at the joker.

The occasional game of UNO was also hard to finish.

I slept for the next hour.

When I woke up, “Next stop, Tokyo. Your exit is on the left.”

I was relieved when the announcement rang out.

I was finally free from the hell I had been in for so long.

I could no longer feel my feet on the ground.

“Let’s get on the bus first!”

She grabbed me by the arm and took me away.

As we got on the bus, I was told about today’s schedule.

“First, we’ll go to Tokyo Sky Tree. Then we’ll go somewhere for lunch, move again, and stay at a hotel.”

How many tens of thousands of yen would I spend today alone?

I was so scared that my hands were shaking.

But I was okay with it.

I can be with Hikari. Let’s enjoy it.

And I have to confess my feelings to …….

After a 30-minute train ride, we arrived at the station where the Skytree was located.

The Skytree was very tall when I saw it in front of me.

“Wow, it’s so tall!”

No wonder it’s so tall, it’s 634 meters high.

As soon as we entered, we took the elevator to the Astronomical Deck.

When I arrived at the Astronomical Deck, my legs were stuck in the elevator.

“What’s wrong? Let’s go see the cityscape of Tokyo “

My legs froze in place.

I mustered up the courage to take a step forward, but immediately fell back.

I had always been afraid of heights.

The last time I went to the observatory, I was just barely okay.

“Let’s go.”

She grabbed me by the arm and took me away.

The next thing I knew, I was on a transparent floor.

I looked down and saw that my legs and head were broken.

Alarms were going off in my head.

This is a dangerous area. This is a dangerous area, no one is allowed in here.

What if this glass breaks and I fall in?

I looked next to me and saw that there were about ten people on board.

Ten people might fall off.

What would happen if it fell? What will I think at the moment of the fall?

What am I going to think? Is this what you call a running lantern?

Mom, Dad, my sister who died a long time ago.

Thank you for everything.

I think I might be dying.

“What are you doing? You’re not going to fall.”

HIkari came close and jumped there.

This time I was ready to die.

Tears streamed down my face.

“Woooooooo!!!!”

I shouted out loud, not caring about the people around me.

That’s how scared I was.

I can’t do this anymore.

Hikari gave me a look of helplessness and put me back on the floor.

“Thank you, …….”

“I’m sorry too.”

Hikari seemed to be feeling a little remorseful.

“Let’s go buy something to make up for it.”

“Yeah.”

We took the elevator downstairs and went to a shop that sold goods of Sorakara-chan from the Sky Tree.

“Hey, hey. Let’s try this one.”, She said in a cute voice.

I looked at them and saw that they were two different colors of a model of the Tokyo Sky Tree.

One was blue and the other was red.

“Do I have to buy one too?”

“Of course. We’ll get matching ones.”

Is this what you call matching? It’s a bit controversial.

It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.

I was a little embarrassed, but I replied, “Okay.”

“Then buy one for me, too.”

“Isn’t it was supposed to be an apology?”

“I didn’t say I’d buy you one.”, Hikari has a habit of forcing unpleasant things on people like that.

The transparent floor and this key chain.

But maybe that’s what I like about her.

I had no choice but to buy my own things.

We attached the key chains to each other’s phones.

“It’s like we’re lovers.”

Indeed. But if you ask me, we’re not lovers.

We’re just friends. How could we do such a thing?

After we finished shopping, we decided to have lunch at a nearby cafe.

Hikari and I decided to have the same pancakes.

Pancakes are cheap and tasty, so they’re good for the cost.

After eating the pancakes, we went outside and Hikari grabbed my arm.

“Then let’s go to the next place.”

Where’s the next place?

After five minutes of walking, we arrived at a building.

It said “Konica Minolta Planetarium” on it.

What kind of name is that? What is Konica Minolta?

When I was wondering that, Hikari was going to the reception desk by herself.

I wondered if she had made an appointment.

It didn’t take long for them to let me in.

Once inside, I found myself in a dome-shaped facility.

“Let’s sit in this cloud chair.”

“Cloud chair?”

Hikari sat on the cloud chair and looked up.

I sat down on the cloud chair too. It was very soft.

“The planetarium will start soon.”

“This may be my first time in a planetarium.”

I’ve never been to a planetarium in my fifteen years of life.

“What about you?”

“I’ve only been once.”

“When?”

“When I was two.”

“You remember that long ago?”

“Faintly.”

I don’t even remember being in elementary school.

More and more people started to gather.

There were less than five minutes left until the start time.

“The narrator is going to tell us many things, so listen carefully.”

“Okay.”

Suddenly, it went dark and the planetarium started.

“Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Konica Minolta Planetarium. Let me take you all to a wonderful galaxy.”

The narrator said a few other words.

The narrator greeted us, then a small song was played and a starry sky appeared above us.

“Let’s talk about the Great Curve of Spring.”

Of course, I had never heard of the Great Curve of Spring, the only seasonal one I knew of was the Great Triangle of Summer.

“I’ve only heard of the summer triangle.”

“The Great Curve of Spring is the curve that connects the Big Dipper in Ursa Major, Arcturus in the Bullfrog constellation, and Spica in Virgo.”

I don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.

What’s Arcturus?

The name sounds like a person from world history.

If it had an “S” at the end, it would be a person from world history.

I looked to the side and saw Hikari looking like she knew what the narrator was talking about.

At that moment, the great curve of spring appeared directly above us.

“‘Wow, that’s beautiful!”

I heard from next seat.

There was a lot of talk about constellations after that.

The planetarium was over and the time was 15:00.

We had to find a hotel.

Where was the hotel? I was very curious.

“Where is the hotel?”

“It’s over there.”

HIkari pointed to the other side.

I looked in that direction and saw a sign that said “love hotel.”

“A love hotel !?”

“It’s behind there.”

There was a proper hotel behind it.

“Thank God.”

“What were you thinking?”

Hikari kept asking, but I ignored her and headed for the hotel.

I arrived at the hotel, went through the reception and went inside.

The room was about the same size as the astronomy club room.

“Only one room?

“You can’t ask for two rooms.”

“I see.”

“One bed to sleep in then?”

“I guess so.”

“Then let’s get rid it of by Baba”

Old maid. That word is a word of hell for me.

It brings back memories of the morning.

“Aren’t you bored?”

“How could I get bored?”

I don’t understand why I don’t get bored.

Normally I would get bored after ten times.

I think I’ve done it a hundred times already.

In the first place, what’s so interesting about the game of Baba-rufu?

I don’t know one thing about it.

It’s just two people drawing cards. If you don’t have a mule, the other person always has one.

If there are four or five of us, it’s fun to see who has the mule.

It’s not fun to draw cards with two people.

“I don’t like it.”

“Then I’ll send you to Sky Tree tomorrow.”

Sky Tree. The Sky tree brought back bad memories.

I never want to go to that place again.

It felt like a kind of threat.

“All right.”

The hellish time began again.

It was getting dark outside, and it must be time for dinner.

I was in the middle of a game of Baba-rufu.

“Let’s go eat soon.”

“Yeah, sure. After this one.”

I knew I couldn’t finish.

The next thing I knew, it was dark.

It was pitch black. I heard the sound of my stomach in the light.

We finally went outside to a restaurant.

“I’m tired.”

“I’m having fun, though.”

“It’s really amazing.”

We walked to a restaurant and ordered a hamburger.

We talked until the hamburgers arrived.

“Do you have any sibling?”

“I have. A younger brother.”

“What’s he like?

“He’s so sweet and cares for me so much. When I was hospitalized once, he looked after me all the time. He’s an idiot like me, but he’s funny.”

“I see.”

I had a picture in my mind.

“Do you have siblings, Kouki?”

“No, I don’t.”

“Really? That’s surprising.”

“What’s so surprising?”

“No. I had a feeling there might be.”

While we were talking, a hamburger arrived.

“It looks so good.”

Hikari was eating it like it was delicious.

I love that face. I want to see it more.

I followed Hikari’s lead and ate it, but it was really too delicious.

I felt like I was going to collapse. Is there such a thing in this world?

I finished eating and went back to the hotel.

While Hikari was taking a bath.

I opened my science textbook and read.

Cologne

I heard the sound of something falling.

It was coming from Hikari’s bag.

Looking around the bag of HIkari, there was a ruby ​​jewel there.

“What are you doing?”

Hikari was standing there, wearing only a towel.

I could see a little of her chest and I could feel my heart beating faster.

“Why are you dressed like that?”

“You don’t like it?”

“Come on, get dressed already.”

“You don’t have to say that.”

Hikari came back with her clothes on.

“Hey, what’s this key ring?”

“It was given to me by someone I cared about a long time ago.”

“Someone important?”

“I don’t remember who, but…”

Something was bothering me.

But I put it aside and opened my science textbook.

“What are you studying?”

“It’s almost the end of term. I’m trying to memorize some terms.”

“You’re surprisingly studious.”

“I’ve never gotten less than a seven.”

“Oh, that’s sarcasm. I remember having a score of 3 & 4.”

“Three is two on a scale of one to five.” [TL Note: I literally didn’t understand what he meant by it. the original line was: 「3って5段階評価の2じゃんやばく無い?」]

“It’s fine. I haven’t repeated a year.”

It doesn’t matter if you repeat a year or not, I think.

“Go take a bath.”

I went to take a bath, and when I came out, the room was dark.

The room was dark. Hikari was asleep on the bed.

It was only eleven o’clock.

I went next to Hikari and tried to fall asleep.

I could see Hikari’s face in close-up next to mine.

I hid the redness of my face under the covers and went to sleep.

The next day, we woke up early, took the bullet train, and went home.

Of course, the only thing I did on the way home was to pull out my old maid

In the middle of the game, I heard my phone ringing.

I looked at the line and saw that it was from Kengo.

“You’re on a date, right?”

“It’ll be soon. If I were to confess…”

A confession. I hadn’t thought about that.

I have to tell her how I feel.

It’s now or never. I was ready to say it.

“Hikari, there’s something I need to tell you. ……”

When I looked forward, Hikari had closed her eyes.

“It was fun …”

She was talking in her sleep. I gulped and looked up at the sky.

I looked up at the sky.

It’s still too early to confess, I guess.

I searched around the bag of light.

There was a ruby gemstone there.

“What are you doing?”

Hikari was standing there, wearing only a towel.

I could see a little of her chest and I could feel my heart beating faster.

“Why are you dressed like that?”

“You don’t like it?”

“Come on, get dressed already.”

It’s still too early to confess, I guess.
