At those unexpectedly heartfelt words, Nenene's ardor cooled a bit.

"I bet there are others who feel the same way, too. But you know, when you like someone, you want to learn more about them, right?"

"Like? Me? Even though you just met me?"

"Yes. Because beyond that, I've read so very much."

Yomiko's statement was impossible to misinterpret. Her words were as guileless as those of a child.

"...And I just told you, that's not me; that's my books."

"One and the same. After all, didn't you say that you put your all into them?"

"...................."

Yomiko began to flip gently through
The Streetcorner where the Cats Are, her fingers moving the pages with apparent loving care.

"The extent to which you throw yourself into your writing is made clear to me through this paper."

With that, Yomiko turned her gaze directly onto Nenene, smiling unguardedly.

"I, truly, love you."

An awkward silence fell. Odds are neither one wanted to address a certain tiny implication in that statement.

Having just been hit by a statement that could be interpreted as a confession of love, Nenene's expression shifted to one of simultaneous befuddlement and rage. Yomiko quietly replaced the letter's envelope.

Oh, GJ, Yomiko. That was smooth. Smooth like my raw translations.
