1. Everything Changed

August 6th, 1945


“Daisuke!” Tsukika screamed, running to her husband. “Daisuke, my mom and dad-.” Her husband cut her off by pulling her into a hug. He knew what had happened. The whole world knew what had happened.

Her parents had lived in Hiroshima, along with millions of others. It was a tragedy and the whole thing was horrible to think about. Tsukika cried in Daisuke’s arms for hours before falling asleep. Daisuke carried his tiny wife up to their bed, laying her down gently and covering her up before going to his side of the bed and crawling in. He held her close, not wanting to think about what had taken place in Hiroshima just hours ago.


Daisuke woke up before his wife did. He slowly slipped out of bed, not wanting to disturb his beautiful, sleeping wife. She normally woke up around seven, and it was already nine. ‘The crying must’ve taken it out of her,’ Daisuke thought to himself as he walked to the kitchen to start on some tea.

He made jasmine, Tsukika’s favorite.

She walked down the stairs only minutes after the tea was finished, a blanket was wrapped around the small woman’s shoulders. She sniffled as she shuffled her way to the table. “Thank you,” she said softly, taking a sip of her tea. That’s when she started crying again.

Daisuke let out a sad sigh, he hated seeing his wife hurt like this, and he felt terribly about what happened. He cared for his mother and father-in-law too, but he had to stay strong for his wife. He walked to the other side of the table and picked her up off her chair before carrying her back to their bedroom and tucking her into bed and once again crawling in next to her. She clung to him and cried.


The day, Tsukika had finally calmed down. She ran out of tears and was now just void of all emotion. Daisuke hated to see her this way, but he knew that it would pass too, just like the crying had. He left her alone in their room all day, only to come back at bed time with a small snack for her.

“Honey,” he said softly. “You need to eat.” Tsukika just shook her had and Daisuke didn’t pressure her, he just got into bed and slept.


The third day after the incident, they both woke up late.

Tsukika was awake first today, and she shook her husband lightly. He woke up and turned to face his beautiful wife. “How are you?” he asked and she smiled weakly.

“Better, I think. I just want to see my parents again though.” She took a shaky breath. “Thank you for putting up with me.”

Daisuke pulled her into a tight hug. “There’s no reason to thank me. I love you so much, I hope you know that.”

Tsukika chuckled. “Daisuke, I love you t-.”
