It was Thursday, April 18, 2013, and Hiroaki’s wound healed and felt a lot better.
They went back to the shelter where they found money.
“Wow. That’s a lot of yen*. About 22 billion yen*!”, Hiroaki said unbelievably.
“Yeah! Yeah…”, Itsuki said excitedly then softly as if something troubled him.
“Something wrong?”, Hiroaki said confusedly.
“Yeah. It just doesn’t feel right. Having all this money that could belong to someone. This could be all they own. You know what I mean?”, Itsuki said feeling down and guiltily.
“I never thought about it that way. Yeah. I kinda feel the same way.”, Hiroaki said sharing the same feelings.
“Let’s continue the mystery and see when it ends I guess.”, Itsuki said feeling somber*.
Sorry for the super short story. I’ll make the next ones longer to make up for this one. So Itsuki starts to realize that this might not be the best idea. What do you think will happen next? Do you think Itsuki will just shake it off or will he change his mind about doing this? How about Hiroaki? I’ll give you guys a hint since this was really short. Hiroaki will try to comprehend why they are feeling this way.
