In March, 1998, the instant that the divorce was granted,
Kyoko was very pleased to have it done so. Actually, rather than to divorce she was happy to be going to be able to see Isshiki. She believed it must be unreserved to finally meet him. She wanted not only to meet and marry him, but also to reveal the strange and virtual world which had been built by the communication and had been the base of her real world. She wanted to feel relieved mentally.
“Saori, I won the trial. I’m divorced. I can see San soon, can’t I? ” said Kyoko.
Saori looked pale.
“What’s up?” asked Kyoko.
“San told me, ‘However passionately he-she loves each other, there are cases where the society cannot accept their marriage. The society will never allow them to marry.’”
Saori’s expression became very dark.
“…No…,” Saori waved her head, “the society will never permit it,” repeated Saori.
“Why not ? There cannot be such a thing. Well, a woman can’t get remarried six months after the divorce by law. But remarriage is allowed since over six months. In America, it’s said that homosexual marriage might be allow soon. The times are changing. Today is such a time, why can’t we marry? As far the relationship with your father, the marriage relation has been on the rocks for a long time. I can see him at once, even now,” said Kyoko with upset feelings.
“Well…maybe, I guess, his company might be involved with this marriage…,” said Saori.
