Chapter 153
Mother: If you keep on wishing, wishes can come true, right?! / I wished and wished! / Every day! / EVERY SINGLE DAY! // So why?!!

[side text: Hurting her daughter, and hurting herself in the process... Now, with a scream, Kohane's mother unleashes her tears. What was her wish... what was her desire?!]
Mother: Why...? / Why...?!

Mother: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaggghhhhh...!!

[no text just kohane and watanuki]

Yuuko: Here.
[sFX: pour]
Doumeki: Thank you very much.
Yuuko: So what happened to the mother?
Doumeki: She was in no state to walk around on her own... / Apparently the TV station staff took her to the hospital.
Yuuko: ...I see. // And so Watanuki was able to bring Kohane-chan here.
Doumeki: That girl... //'ve let her in the shop.

Yuuko: ...She must have a wish.
[sFX: clatter]
Watanuki: .........Kohane-chan.
Kohane: ...A long time ago... // My mother said something to me. / Back when Father was still around, when I wasn't appearing on TV or anything.

Flashback!Mother: I always knew I wanted to call you "Kohane". // On the day I married your father, it was snowing... it looked just as though thousands of little feathers were falling from the sky. // That's why I kept on wishing... // Wishing that I could give birth to a beautiful baby girl on a day just like that, with the snow falling.
Flashback!Kohane: Did it really happen?
Flashback!Mother: Of course.
[TN: In case anybody doesn't know, Kohane means "little feather".]

Flashback!Mother: I hope the three of us can stay happy like this forever. // Don't worry... // If we wish hard enough, it's sure to come true.

Kohane: But then, not long after that... // I started seeing things that other people couldn't see. // The first thing I saw... / ...was a woman I didn't know, standing next to my father. // I just saw her standing there, and I told my mother about it. // To begin with, she just laughed and listened. // "What kind of woman?" / She asked me, so I answered. // And then...

Kohane: It turned out, she was a woman from the company where my father worked. // I had described her perfectly. // That night, my mother and father were awake well into the night, fighting. // And they never stopped fighting after that. / My mother started putting everything she had into getting me on TV, and my father stopped coming home.

Kohane: Mother had said that if we just wished, then it would come true... / But... / In the end, the three of us couldn't stay happy together. // I just kept wishing, too, that Mother at least could be happy... / But it didn't work out. // Ever since that day when I first started seeing them... / There were always these strange black things, coiling themselves around Mother. // They just kept getting bigger and bigger...

Kohane: If they get any bigger... / I... // I'm scared that the black things might bury her completely...

[sFX: squeeze]
[TN: kohane love]

Kohane: ...Mother...
[side text: Eternal loneliness... eternal sadness. Now, in the arms of Watanuki, who can do nothing but hold her... she reveals her true feelings for her mother!!]
