*Notes on an story: Fragment  .断章

 

*Then ,your father loves to read this book,doesn't he ?...

Yes, he does. I think so. And this book is one of his collections of books and the one in the complete works of Kanzou Uchimura...

Does your father  study that sort of books well ?

Nein, doch he seemed to have read them not a little.

Not a little ? ..Then  he's a scholar ?..

Nein, he's a businessman.

What kind of a businessman ,if I might ask you?...

.......      Do you mind my asking like this ? ...

No, not at all..

Then, let me hear now.

He runs a departmentstore ...

Runs a departmentstore ?... Where then,?....

In the city of K. in Saitama Prefecture .

Saitama prefecture..And ...    Saying this, Misugi hesitated to ask further. So, he intended to go back to the topics in the former subject. He watched her eyes directly. ..Her black eyes shined brightly and seemed to demand something . Her small lips moved a little. However ,her voice did not come out at all....

He was taking an interval.  He was thinking about the next topics. Then, as having remembered at that time ,he asked   the same question that she had asked  him some time before....Then she said shortly in a clear voice ,I'm a Christian, .. Do you get surprised , don't you ?.....

  * Afterwards, Hiromi spoke about the faith a little. It was a way of talking and the content that was felt totally simple and pure..  Misugi listened attentively to her story and was not going to ask it deeply, but the new world seemed to spread in front of him a little....  The outside had already darkened . The moon was shining dully in the clear sky. However, so many bright illuminations had begun to glisten here and there as to turn off the moonlight...  It was still a little past 6:00 pm. in the evening.  Man need not mind the urban night time. The urban night could be lighted up ,as if it were a daytime and still more , man felt, as it were made so beautiful... Therefore ,6:00 pm in the urban winter was felt early in time, . However,Misugi minded the time of Fraulein Hiromi (so called, Miss Hiromi) itself a little...

Do you care about being later  than usual ?....

They were gradually going to the station , Yotsuya.  Misugi put his shoulder to Hiromi's  quietly and whispered by her ear..

Never mind , Mr. MIsugi. I have a little more time to  accompany you.   She said modestly in a low voice .  He minded her again and said to her.

It isn't good if I induce you to supper ?...

Nein,  never mind...

Then , Please come , Fraulein   Hiromi !.....   Yes,....
