“A pleasant breeze was blowing across my body. I thought to myself that if Baby, the Stars Shine Bright were to design a scooter like Viva You had done, I’d get a scooter license. It would be an all-white scooter with wings, like something an angel would ride, and I’d travel the roads of Shimotsuma on it alongside Ichigo. Oh Ichigo. My darling Ichigo. There’s so much that I owe you, too. But I’m never paying any of it back - not a smidgen. You’re also the one who showed me that growing up might not be such a bad thing after all. Thank you, Ichigo. This is much too embarrassing for me to ever say aloud, but you’re the best friend I could ever have.
Feeling the wind against me I softly laid my head against Ichigo’s back, the way I might have with a lover.”
