…………… September 2008, about their life……………
“We cannot help giving up,” said Kyoko. “We don’t have any money.
The time is coming, as I told you at that time, that we could not live together,so only one could survive……if we lived together, we could do so at most only two years.The time is coming.”
Their life continues to be pressing.Kyoko has been working for a cram school teacher and as a tutor.Saori has not been able to have a normal daily life and work outside her home since that awful incident.But she has had a web shop, which sells the local specialty food of the Akita area which is located in Northeast Japan.
The host and manager of the web shop is Saori, but she is hardly able to do any work.
Kyoko helps her with her web shop work.
Kyoko has been performing a number of routine tasks such as creating homepages, updating them on the web, accepting orders from
customers, ordering food products, from suppliers, managing product inventory, packing and shipping to clients so on.
All of them take a good amount of time. Considering time and work, they have hardly made any profit from Saori’s web shop so far.
They have mainly depended on Kyoko’s work as a professional educator for their income.
Actually Saori’s web shop has been the red, as it has not been able to even pay the internet connection fee, to say nothing of the
business system fee
In spite of the deficit, they have managed to operate a web shop because Saori can have a job after a fashion.
