この章の内容、特に人物の言葉、は翻訳しにくかったので、そんなにいい話と感じないかもしれません。でも、この話は実にとても面白くて、悲しいから、読み続けてみてください。             

                            2
    One evening, I asked mother to let me go pick eggplants from the eggplant field.
“Masao …”
    I was surprised when I was suddenly called on. I turned and found Tamiko standing behind me.
    “I asked Aunt to let me come too.”
    Tamiko said and seemed very happy.
    Mother must have found the spiritless Tamiko pitiful so decided to let her come with me. Tamiko started to pick eggplants while smiling pleasantly the entire time. The eggplant field was in a very high place with the river below it and Fuji Mountain and other far away mountains in sight. Under the autumn sky, bathed in the light of the setting sun, it was as if we were in a painting.
    “So beautiful …”
    Both Tamiko and I stopped to look at the wonderful scenery before us.
    After catching a glimpse of Tamiko’s profile, I suddenly became aware her beauty. I had always thought of her as cute before, but I realized she is beautiful today. The soft, shining black hair, the barely noticeable ear under it, the white beautiful face, the long slender neck.
    ----------How can she be so beautiful?----------
    At this moment, I was not the person that I had been for the past ten days. The two of us were no longer the friends that we had been until then. When did this kind of feelings emerge? I didn’t understand at all. Perhaps from the moment when mother scolded us, inside my heart, a small “seed of love” had been born. Since that day, I started to see Tamiko differently, as a woman.
    Since I haven’t talked to Tamiko at all during these ten days, I felt that I had to say something, “Tami…”
    I called her name, but didn’t know what to say next.
    “Yes, Masao?”
    “Nothing. Nothing. But, Tami, you’ve changed. It seems that you hate me now.”
    “What? How do I hate you?”
    “Well, recently, you’ve completely changed, and looked as if you’d forgotten me.”
    “Don’t say that, Masao, that’s mean. I was only trying hard to be careful because aunt scolded me.”
    Tamiko stared at me as if she was about to cry.
    “Didn’t I get mad and talked back? Anyway, you changed all of a sudden. I was so lonely because you wouldn’t say anything to me, and won’t even come to see me anymore. So, come sometimes okay? If mother says anything you can just say it’s my fault.”
    Tamiko seemed troubled, but at the same time very happy about what I said. While we talked Tamiko became more and more energetic, and I too became happy.
    The two of us felt like the only two people in the world, and picked the remaining eggplants as fast as we could.
    When we realized that we finished everything the sun was already seting toward the mountain in the west.
    “Tami, look. The setting sun is so pretty.”
    “Oh, it really is.”
    Tamiko put the basket with the eggplants down and waved to the setting sun with both of her hands together. I couldn’t forget the Tamiko at this time for a long time.
    We talked on our way home, and saw the servant standing in front of the house.
    “He’s going to say things.”
    “We both had permission from mother so we’ll be okay no matter what he says.”
    After that day, our “seed of love” grew rapidly. Tamiko came to my room again, but was very careful to not let others see us. As for me, who invited her to come, also became worried about what others would say if Tamiko stayed long. Eventually, we ended up not talking during the little time that we had together.
