A short story


 

Most of things she planned were made in spring. For example, 5 blogs of each theme, several big projects as a project manager, some artistic works such as illustrations, playing instruments and even simple compositions. People said that she must have had super powers in spring, and some of them called her ‘The genius of spring’. But nobody knew that she had never tried all these things deliberately. It was caused by definite reasons.

 

The truth was that she couldn’t control all the senses of spring. Various flowers in the residential areas, fragrance of them, ticking of flying pollen, exciting sounds of the street by freshmen and proper temperature for roaming. She just couldn’t help wandering all the time. It was certain that she hadn’t concentrated on her job the season.

 

So she started to change the direction from 2 years ago. At that time, she was just searching her hobbies she could focus on. As a result she could have done many things only in spring time. When she found a remote control of her air conditioner, her temporary mission also finished automatically. If she hadn’t done this, she might have escaped from her real life.

 

One day, one of her friends suggested a meeting with a man, because the friend had believed that she also could be ‘The genius girlfriend of spring’. That time was the middle of spring in their town. So she was very busy, so that she had been proceeding to do something deeply. However, she couldn’t help accepting the friend’s proposal, because she had been offered it patiently. Honestly, she wanted to test whether she really became more attractive in a new relationship.

 

D-day was coming. She made an appointment with him after he had been calling her about the date. When she was attaching earrings, she thought about how long she hadn’t had a boyfriend and what should have she said in front of him.

 

He was sitting in the seat near the window, and his eyes were staring at a thin book, that looked like an economics magazine. She recollected that she had been a chief of local economics club the previous spring. At that time she had learned about lots of financial information intensively for 4 months. Her face looked more confident, and some fear which had dominated her feeling disappeared completely.
