Okay, here is Owari no Chronicle 5-A.

Wow, things have gotten serious! Well, maybe not that serious, but the story has passed the midpoint and it’s thanks to all of you that I’ve made it this far. Thank you very much.

However, I can’t really talk about the story since it would all involve things from Part B. Sorry. But I plan to continue writing this while thinking about and investigating the parts that are based on the real world.

Sakai appeared in the story, but the real Sakai is a nice city too. It’s the kind of city that is a lot more fun if you know a little bit about Japanese history. Really, Kansai is packed full of places like that.

Anyway, let’s get the usual chat started.

“You didn’t read it, did you?”

“Read what? I thought this section was about talking about painful stories about our school days.”

“That’s a lot of ‘abouts’. So can I get mad? Mad enough that you’ll never want to talk to me again?”

“Sure, but if you don’t say anything so bad that I never want to talk to you again, I’ll stick with you forever and always be staring up at you with from somewhere even when we’re apart! …If you’re fine with that, then say it. If not, then bow down and apologize.”

“Sorry, sorry. I’m bowing down, I promise. You can forgive me, right?”

“Next time, we’re using a live camera during our chat. I’ll be typing on the keyboard naked by the way.”

“Really!? Then I’ll leave the final color page free for you! Just wait for Part B!”

“Sorry, I’m bowing down now, so forgive me. And I completely forgot there was a Part B.”

“Then if you have something to say, say it.”

“Well… The other day, I hit my company president with a forklift.”

“Violence from the get-go!? …And why? Because it was past nine on a Tuesday?”

“No, I was carrying too much stuff on it and he ran right out in front of me. I realized what happened when the stuff I was carrying seemed to remain in a perfect shape of him for just an instant. The rest went flying everywhere.”

“That’s a valuable physical phenomenon.”

“The pile of stuff on the floor also bulged up in his shape. Is that what you call the law of conservation?”

No, you idiot. Anyway, this novel’s background music was Kienai Yoru by Anzen Chitai. I think it does a good job expressing the mood of a winter night.

“Who is sleeping?”

I’m also thinking about that, but Part B should be along soon to give the answer.

April 2005. A morning of subsiding allergies.
