You know her?
It's been a while.
How have you been doing?
Nanako, who's that?
Ah, // a schoolmate from middle school.
How long has it been? 3 years?
What a surprise that we meet here, right?
Where are you living now?
In.. Oomiya... // It's close by...
I'm living in Utsnomiya now.
I went to the live today with my boyfriend. // Right?
Ah, he's Koizumi-kun.
...Who's that girl?
Me? // I'm not.
I'm just a friend from the same school. // My name is Tokiwa.
Whose live was it?
Wow! // Was it good?
Yeah, like really good! Right, Koizumi-kun?
You let your hair grow,
It was nice seeing you again.
Ah, there it is..
A schoolmate from middle school?
I'm sure she was popular.
looked a lot like you.
Not at all...
Hey, where's all your energy gone to?
You're taking the bus, right?
I have my bicycle, so see you!
Good luck with the novel...
...always....this....! ....only....! // I have enough of it! Really... !
You know! It's.... you.... Yeah!
Geez, where were you? // At least give us a call!
Have you eaten?
Don't need any.
I said I don't need any!
That was quite the surprise today! Sorry for being so sudden, but want to meet up tomorrow if you're free? Let's talk for a bit. If you have time, I'll come over to Oomiya, so let's have lunch together. I would be happy.
Waiting for your reply.
Sure. Tomorrow at 12. I'll wait at the bean tree at the station.
Thanks for the wait!
Sorry for being so sudden.
And thanks for coming.
Are you hungry? // Let's have lunch somewhere!
Ah... // sure..
let's look this way.
Welcome. A table for how many?
Please follow me.
It's somehow strange
to be meeting you again.
Let's order first! // I'm so hungry.
What should I get?
What's up, Kasuga-kun?
Why don't you enjoy it a bit more? // We haven't seen each other in ages.
how have you been
I don't really remember.
I guess for about a month I was in a detention center. // After that I transferred away...
Since then I have been in Utsunomiya. // And now I'm in high school...
But actually // I don't remember much from around the time I transferred.
But I made friends now
and enjoy it.
I also got a boyfriend in high school.
a normal happiness I guess..
Then what about you?
How have you been?
I also moved to // Oomiya after that..
I have been here since then...
are you happy, Kasuga-kun?
What about Nakamura-san?
to her after that?
I don't know...
I haven't seen her // even once since then....
Don't even know where she is...
