Today’s weather was very sunny. Not a single cloud could be seen in the sky. It was a really refreshing day. Yesterday, I had been listening to Juno while we were going to buy a return gift for Sarasa’s bracelet.
He had a really painful look on his face. Like he’d burst into tears at any given moment. I just listened to him quietly. I could sense he was talking to me not because he wanted my advice.
I also had a tight-lipped friend who would listentened to me in silence when I was having a rough time. When I told him I was tired of the business-like relationship and the fiercely competitive environment and that I wanted to retire to a farming village in the outskirts of Hokkaido, he only said.
“Ah, I see. I knew it.”
Though it differs on each person, I think if the problem could be easily solved with just an advice, they wouldn’t be discussing it with other people in the first place. In my mind, I already knew what the answer was. I only wanted to have someone to hear me and affirmed that I wasn’t making the wrong choice.
That was why I could sense Juno was the same as me. Even though I couldn’t understand his words, I could feel his pain and sadness. And that was enough.
But still, when we parted ways, he gave me a beaming smile and said.
“Thank you. See you.”
In Lancaster language. Even though I didn’t say anything, I guess just that was already enough as an answer for him.
I looked up at the blue sky.
There’s really no rain that won’t stop.
I thought to myself and while I did so, the chickens and Rocinante (my horse), began crying for me to feed them. Ash was also circling around me, begging me to feed him soon.
Well then, I guess today will be another day where I spend the day at my own pace.
T/N: True. Juno already knows the answer. He just needs someone to talk to since obviously, he can’t talk about it with Sarasa or Margo. ( ˊᵕˋ ; )
