”I already spent most money for you.
I have already spent most of the money on winding up your affairs, your hospital charges, and your trying to return to university…..but you couldn’t……”
Saori listened to her story quietly, while Kyoko kept talking,
“Most of the savings have disappeared like flowing water.
With my calculating, there are only a few years for us to manage to live together.
Of course, I’ll work, but my wages will be so low that I can’t support you enough.
We have to utilize savings for our daily life.”
Without concealing anything, Kyoko explained their situation to her daughter Saori.
“I just have to die and leave my life insurance for you,” said Kyoko.
It is sure that the payment of the life insurance premium presses Kyoko. However, even though she is behind in her national pension premiums, she has continued to pay it. It’s a ‘must-have’ and her duty to a poor daughter. If she had much money, savings, she would leave it for her daughter. As she has little money, life insurance must compensate for her lack of money.
“Actually, I think we had better commit suicide together.
But you don’t want to do……,” said Kyoko with her brow darkening..
Saori kept silent without answering.
