"Let’s go on a date," Sensei would say. Even though we lived close to each other, we always met up at the station rather nearest the location of our date. We would make our separate ways to the station. If we ever ran into each other on the train on the way to meet up, Sensei would murmur something like, Oh-ho, Tsukiko, what a strange place to see you."
I realize I must have grown quite fond of this story at some point after all.
It is such a beautiful day outside… ..
I miss you.
