Prologue – High School Girl Yukari Tachibana
My name is Yukari Tachibana.
I’m a female high school student who attends a public high school.
I don’t have a father, so my mother raised me by herself.
Before I was born, he had died in a traffic accident.
At that time, my mother was mentally ill and decided to have an abortion.
But people always stood by her.
Relatives, friends and co-workers were worried about her.
But I was always with her.
My mother, who was touched by their kindness, gradually regained her will to live and gave birth to me.
I was given a beautiful name
— Yukari —
“Yukari”, meaning the fate that had brought them together.
The connection between one person and another.
My mother had given me this name so I could treasure these kind of things.
She had told me that while looking slightly embarrassed.
Thank you, mother…
And good bye.
It seems I resemble father more than I thought.
Today, I was run over by a car.
I hope my mother can be healed once again by her bonds between people,
so she realises she is not alone.
That was my last recollection as Yukari Tachibana.
