AtsuMina ~River of Dreams~
Chapter 1 – 4th Time of Spring
I finished my works
and the students are leaving.
I’ll go home too.
I’ll go home quickly and forget about everything.
Someone stopped my steps in the corridor.
“Oh, good work for today.”
“Umm, about tomorrow’s plan…”
“Shall we…meet up in the evening?”
“Sure thing. Where?”
“Huh…? Thank goodness. You were upset this morning. I thought that you hated me…”
“I’m sorry. Something unpleasant happened this morning…”
“Then let’s eat yummy dishes tomorrow so you can forget that unpleasant happening♪”
She passed by and went home first.
I kept staring at her back.
the time to forget all about Atsuko
The next day
In the end,
I went to the theater.
Atsuko is in the big screen.
The movie is about a good-for-nothing man
with strong-willed and pugnacious woman.
playing that woman’s role.
Love comedy is its genre.
So many scenes that lead the viewers burst into laughter.
I’m staring at Atsuko while some of my memories with her flashed back inside me.
In the climax part,
The scene when the two once separated,
are once again vowed love to each other.
“I will never let you go forever…”
That was Atsuko’s line.
And there is a kissing scene after that.
I was the first person
who touched those lips.
Other people can feel the tactile sense
and also the warm of her lips.
I can’t take this anymore…
I exit the theater even before the credit roll appears.
I keep repeating deep breath.
I can’t lessen my palpitation.
“Takahashi-sensei? Are you okay…?”
Someone is rubbing my back.
“You said that…you’re going to watch a movie.”
With redden cheeks, she muttered.
“I thought that I’d bump to you here… It’s weird isn’t it? Although we already made an appointment properly…//”
To intercept her words,
I grab and hold her hand.
“Call me…‘Minami’. It’s our day off after all…”
“……Minami?” “Minami!” “Miinami♪” “…Mi-…Minami…” “Minamii” “Minami……”
calling my name.
But those were just
my far far away memories.
“Then by all means, please call me ‘Miyuki’”
I called her name while still holding her hand.
“…let’s go, Miyuki.”
I pulled her and started walking together.
