Snowflakes resembling pure white petals began to flutter in the air – a cloudy afternoon.
Miyo was walking to Kiyoka’s office under a gray cloud cover, the sun was not shining, and the sky was gently freezing cold.
– (Thank goodness I got here before it started snowing.)
With one hand she held her own umbrella, and with the other, she held Kiyoka’s umbrella.
Unfortunately, due to a sudden breakdown of the car, Kiyoka was forced to use other transport to get to work only today. Since the morning was sunny, he did not have an umbrella.
– Miyo, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to come all this way.
Soon after telling the guard of the camp what had happened, Kiyoka appeared. It seems that he had already prepared to go home.
– Is your work done?
Kiyoka exhaled a white breath and accepted Miyo’s umbrella.
The two of them walked side by side on the lightly snow-covered street, crunching and crunching.
The path, which had been so icy and dreary when Miyo had come alone, was now a little warmer.
– Thank you, Miyo.
– No, I’m glad I could be of help.
When Miyo smiled and said, “I’ll serve you hot tea when we get back”, Kiyoka’s mouth softly smiled as well.
