What a nice breeze...
……今日は風が気持ちいいな
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
The flowers are swaying like they're enjoying it too.
花も気持ちよさそうに揺れてて……
Tenma Saki
Saki
Oh, there you are Ichi!
あ、いっちゃんここにいたんだ!
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Saki, is something the matter?
咲希、どうかしたの?
Tenma Saki
Saki
I couldn't find you in the classroom, so I was wondering where you'd gone to.
教室にいなかったから、 どこに行ったのかなーって思って
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Ah! Hold it, Saki! Stop where you are!
あっ! 待って、咲希! ストップ!
Tenma Saki
Saki
Huh? Um, okay!
えっ、あ、はい!
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Sorry for raising my voice all of a sudden.
It's just, there's a flower over there, so...
ごめん、急に大きな声出して。 そこに、花があったからつい……
Tenma Saki
Saki
Oh, you're right! I didn't notice it at all.
Thanks for letting me know.
あっ、本当だ! 全然気づかなかった。 教えてくれてありがとう
Tenma Saki
Saki
I almost didn't manage to avoid it... Wait!
I stepped on a little bit of the leaves!
ぎりぎり踏まなくて済ん……でない! ちょっと葉っぱ踏んじゃってた!
Tenma Saki
Saki
Wh-What's going to happen now?
Will this flower wither and die?!
ど、どうしよう、 この子枯れちゃう……!?
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Um... Ah, this shouldn't be a problem.
This species of flower is pretty tough.
えっと……あ、これくらいなら大丈夫。 この種類の花は丈夫だから
Tenma Saki
Saki
Really? Phew... What a relief.
ホント? はぁ……そっかぁ、良かった
Tenma Saki
Saki
Also, why am I not surprised that you know so much about flowers?
それにしても、さすがいっちゃん! 花のこと、すっごく詳しいね!
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
I know about it because it's a common flower, that's all.
よく見かける花だから知ってただけだよ
Tenma Saki
Saki
But it's not just this flower
You also know a lot about many other flowers too, right?
でも、この花だけじゃなくて、 いっちゃんいろんな花のこと知ってるでしょ?
Tenma Saki
Saki
I remember you used to teach me many things about them,
花言葉とか、昔いっちゃんから たくさん教わったよね~
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Yes... I did, didn't I?
……そんなこともあったね
Tenma Saki
Saki
Yep! When I was in the hospital, or bedridden at home, you'd always come visit with flowers and then tell me many different things about them!
うん! 入院してた時とか、家で寝込んでた日とか、 お見舞いにいっつも花持ってきてくれて、 この花はねーって話してくれたよね
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Well, that sure brings back memories.
うん。懐かしいな
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
I couldn't get anything grand, so I would pick just one after looking up its symbolism.
あんまり豪華なのは買えなかったから、 毎回花言葉調べて、一本だけ選んで……
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Hehe, going to the florist was so fun. I was still in elementary school then, so the shop staff would sometimes give me a discount.
ふふ、花屋に行くの楽しかったな。 あの頃は小学生だったから、店の人がオマケしてくれたりして
Tenma Saki
Saki
I'm so sure it was because of your flowers that I was able to recover and get discharged!
アタシが今退院して元気でいられるのも、 いっちゃんの花のおかげかも!
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Come on, Saki... That's an exaggeration.
もう、咲希は大げさだな……
Tenma Saki
Saki
Hehe. Actually, I've been pressing those flowers you gave me and keeping them.
ふふっ。実はね、いっちゃんがくれた花、 押し花にしてとってあるの
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Really?
え?
Tenma Saki
Saki
Whenever things get tough, I'd look at those flowers and it's like all my bad feelings get sucked away, you know?
その花を見るとね、 辛い気持ちもすーってなくなっていくんだよ?
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Saki...
咲希……
Tenma Saki
Saki
Ah, speaking of which, I remember you once brought a morning glory that you'd planted in school too!
……あ。そういえば、学校で育てたアサガオを 持ってきてもらったこともあったよね!
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Yes, and I had no idea it was unlucky to visit someone with a potted flower, which was exactly what I had bought...
あ。植木鉢に入った花は縁起が悪いなんて知らなくて そのまま持って行っちゃったんだよね……
Tenma Saki
Saki
I can still clearly remember the shocked look on the nurse's face back then!
あの時、看護師さんぎょっとした顔してたよね。 アタシ今でもはっきり覚えてるよー
Tenma Saki
Saki
But we also planted a morning glory flower bed in the garden at my home, along with Shiho and Hona, using seeds from that flower, didn't we?
でも、そのアサガオの種で、 ほなちゃんやしほちゃんと一緒に うちにアサガオの庭を作ったよね
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Yeah. All of us went to your house to do that, and we also went back to check on the flowers too.
……うん。みんなで咲希の家にお邪魔して、 様子も見に行ったな
Tenma Saki
Saki
Yeah! But because I didn't manage to water the flowers for about a week...
そうそう! でも、アタシが一週間くらい水やりできなくて……
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
It can't be helped since you weren't feeling well.
仕方ないよ、体調悪かったんでしょ
Tenma Saki
Saki
But the morning glories became all droopy because of that...
でも、そのせいでアサガオが元気なくしちゃって……
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
You were really depressed about it, so the three of us tried out best to take care of the flowers on our own.
あの時は、咲希がすごく落ち込んでるからって、 3人で頑張ってお世話したなぁ……
Tenma Saki
Saki
Yeah! I was so surprised to see them doing so well when I went out to the garden one day after a long time!
そう! びっくりしたんだよ、久しぶりにお庭に出たら 元気なかったはずのアサガオがピンピンしてるんだもん!
Tenma Saki
Saki
I asked mom about it, and she told me the three of you had been taking care of them. I was so touched I broke into tears right there in the garden!
お母さんに聞いたら、3人がお世話してくれたって…… アタシ、嬉しくてお庭で泣いちゃったんだ
Tenma Saki
Saki
Hehe, it's a precious memory of mine.
えへへ、アタシの大事な大事な思い出!
Tenma Saki
Saki
Will we be able to play together like that again someday?
……また4人で一緒に遊んだりできるかなぁ
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Well...
…………
Tenma Saki
Saki
I know! We just have to try right?
Maybe we should talk to Hona and Shiho after school today?
……うん! とにかくやってみないとだよね! というわけで、放課後、 ほなちゃんとしほちゃんに声かけてみない?
Hoshino Ichika
Ichika
Yes, let's try that.
……うん。そうしてみよっか
