It was the time when some gray was already beginning to be visible in her rich long hair, of which she had been proud since she was young. She fully recognized that she might be troubled with getting a new job after leaving her sister's pharmacy. Though, she dared to do so.
Before Saori got that illness, Kyoko had considered a big city life in Tokyo but she didn't want to go to Tokyo to work anymore. Leaving the home town in hurry where she was used to living, renting an apartment, taking care of Saori, she supposed, the city life would worsen the condition of her daughter’s disease soon. She made her mind up that she should never let her be hospitalized.
Living in the big city with taking care of sick Saori was far more hopeless than in their small town.
The title of the house and property where they lived was shared by Kyoko and her sister, although her assignment was quite little. Having her own house made her mind bright and encouraged to live here. Even though she experienced the same adventure as in the big city, she was able to feel a steadfast foundation.
She made up her mind to live here.
However, having hope, she could still foresee their future while considering situations surrounding her when she left her sister’s pharmacy, as probably coming to a dead-end………It was a paradox.
