Eventually though, even I warmed up to their attempt to create a celebratory mood.

“Ah, thank you, Hideki.” I said on behalf of Aoi, who was lying there still and silent. We smiled down at her quietly. There was a pang of pain. I didn’t realize hosting a birthday party here would be depressing. Maybe I shouldn’t have done this.

He passed me the birthday gift. It was wrapped.

“Open it.” He told me with a smile.

I paused and looked down at it. I couldn’t get over the fact that I had to open Aoi’s presents for her too.

With the wrapping paper gone, I could see that it was a CD. Aoi’s favourite artist.
