Cells:The story of a marvelous battery with a small sun inside

(著) 井上朝廣



Fumio Matsubara thought he heard a faint noise. These days he often woke up in the middle of the night because of the stress. Now he sensed a quiet noise in the Western tableware workshop connected to his home. His wife Chizuko and daughter Kumiko slept peacefully next to him. The clock's luminous hand, next to the pillow, pointed just past 2:00 a.m.
(Is it just my imagination? There is no way there should be a thief in a place like this.)
Fumio lay down again and closed his eyes. He remembered the face of Yat-chan, an elementary school classmate with whom he reunited by chance last week.
He’d gotten a phone call the previous day. He had heard that Yat-chan, who was his close friend, had graduated from a university in Tokyo, but there was no news about him after that.
(If only I could see Yat-chan earlier. I'm sure it'll get better from now on.)
