twitter short story (2016)
This is an adorable short story posted for Tomo's 2016 birthday!
happy birthday, tomo!
Tomo: *knock knock* Yuki, are you there?
Tomo: He's not here... Even though he said come to my room later.
Tomo: Oh well. I'll take a nap. He should be here soon.
Yuki: Tomo, Tomo! Wake up.
Tomo: *yaaawn* What a good sleep.
Yuki: Tomo, happy birthday!
Tomo: ...Oh, Yuki. Good morning.
Yuki: Tomo, you're not supposed to answer good morning, it should be thank you. Besides, it's already dark.
Tomo: You're right. Why aren't the lights on?
Yuki: Close your eyes for a second. I'll release them into the room.
Yuki: Alright, open your eyes!
Tomo: Fireflies!? Wow, they're really pretty. And there's so many.
Yuki: I even went off campus to go catch them as a present for you.
Tomo: Thanks. It must have been hard to catch this many.
Yuki: Ehehehe. I'm glad they make you happy.
Tomo: But why fireflies?
Yuki: When we were in grade school, we only got to play together until dusk, so we never did stuff like watch fireflies at night. So I thought something like this might be nice.
Yuki: And I just heard about a really great spot for fireflies from Okaken. I went to a famous spiritual spot (although if I had to say, it seemed more like a haunted spot).
Tomo: I'm glad you got back safely.
Yuki: It would have been scary if it had gotten a little darker.
Yuki: Then, since the place I caught them at was near my house, I stopped by and bought strawberry and cream danishes! Let's eat them instead of cake.
Yuki: Actually, I tried asking Sonoda-san for a cake, but for some reason he turned me down.
Tomo: Really? Well, but these are delicious, so it's plenty. I'm really grateful, Yuki.
Yuki: You're welcome. Let's eat!
Tomo: Yuki, you have cream on your lips. ......*smooch*
Yuki: I, idiot. Tomo, suddenly... kissing me...
Tomo: Was it bad?
Yuki: Uh-uh. I'm happy.
Tomo: Yuki, I love you.
Yuki: Me too...... mh......
Tomo: Later, let's release the fireflies outside.
Yuki: Then maybe we can see them next year too.
Tomo: Probably. Let's watch them together again.
