I’m Kenji Kita - a fourteen year old boy
who’s turning fifteen within a few weeks.
My childhood friend,
Nana is a charismatic female...
Who’s also fourteen years old.
She’s celebrating her fifteenth birthday
within the same week as mine.
Nana lived three hundred feet away from me,
yet I have always been by her side
regardless of how far she lived.
I spend all my time making her happy,
because she was at her best when she smiled...
Our parents go way back,
So we basically grew up knowing each other.
Throughout our childhood,
We created memories we cherished.
we also created a relationship,
that we have came to cherish a lot.
We had a special bond like no other...
We were in sync.
When we were six years old,
we made a pinky promise
that on our fifteenth birthday,
we would become lovers.
On the beginning of spring.
Nana said to me, “Kenji, you make me happy.”
her words contented my heart,
Mere words could not describe how happy I felt.
“Nana, I love you,” I uttered.
She glared at me and said,
“Sorry Kenji, I cannot accept your feelings yet.”
“Is it because of our promise?”
“Yes, I do not want to break it, let’s wait.”
“OK, let’s wait,” I quipped.
My heart was at peace.
Nana suddenly transferred to another high school,
and had to relocate.
Even though I wasn’t happy about it,
I still supported her bearing the fact that
we would not be together anymore.
On the day of her departure,
she smiled gaily at me and said,
“Let’s make another pinky promise.”
My eyes Glimmered, while I replied
With a saccharine tone, “Yes!”
“When we converge again;
let’s confess our love to each other,
no matter what,” said Nana,
while tears made their way down her face.
I kissed her tears away... “I, Kenji Kita,
pinky Swear to confess my love to Nana Sato,
when we converge again.”
Nana smiled at me once more and uttered,
“Bye Kenji, until we meet again.”
From that day on-wards, Nana and I,
have been living our life apart.
Even though our relationship came to a stop,
our happiness still went on.
