A Simple Love Story

This is a simple love story. 

About a girl with her high school uniform who sits in a train while playing with her handphone,

and about a boy with his business suit who sits next to her and reading his book.

This is a simple love story about them spending 20 minutes in the train bound to Oogakie, sitting next to each other in silence.

Since this is a simple love story, we should expect them to smile to each other and exchange their names. And so they did. 

Soon they talked and found themselves attracted to each other. Really a simple love story.

Several months passed and they declared themselves as a couple. 

The girl, is a high school student in a top private school that only accepts those who are either smart or very rich. The girl, as we can guest from the beginning of this story, is a smart girl; if she was  the daughter of a CEO she must not be in the train but instead in a private car with a private driver. The girl has always been the only thing that their parents is so proud about; aside of their overseas vacation one time to Korea. But to their sadness, the girl is actually very sick. At her 12 birthday, she was diagnosed with a disease that forbids her to fall down to the ground because it will permanently damage her bones structure. She could lose her legs just by falling down. 

The boy is 6 years older than her. Recently graduated from an average university with an average score and now is working with a company for an average salary. The story of his life is, however, not so average for so many people. The boy is the second son of a rich manager in a private firm. The first son, his brother, born with mental disorder that did not allow him to speak a word until he was 8 years old. When he finally spoke for the first time, he could only said “mama” and he never speaks again ever since. Devastated with his first son’s condition, the father locked himself in a garage with his car’s engine on. The next day he was found dead with a suicide note laying next to him. He only wrote three words: I am sinful. 

After his father’s death, the boy had to work to feed his mother and brother. He cut his education and joined his old friend who is working in a bar, he got a new job as a gigolo. The money poured like a rain after that. Everything seemed good. Until his mother found out what he has been doing and she did what her husband did. She committed suicide with a suicide note laying next to her: I forgive you.

Shocked by this event, the boy sent his brother to a public care house provided by government and wanted to start over. He used all his savings from being a gigolo to fund his education and worked his ass off as a part-timer in a construction site. He graduated, worked for a company, and then he met her, the girl with a disease.

The boy and the girl has been going out for a year now. She was weak, but she is still alive. However, one day in summer, the girl’s parents found out about their relationship and demanded her to break up with him immediately. Saying that her future is too bright to be sacrificed by living with a man who used to work as a gigolo. How the parents knew about this information is still a mystery. But the girl insisted to stay with him and told her parents that she can only live if he is around. Saying that she has no future with her disease and that she wanted to make her own choice in her life for the first time. The parents got very angry and said things like she was actually adopted when she was a baby, which is apparently is true.

Shocked by the fact, the girl tried to runaway from her house and stay with the boy. However, her parents are ahead of her. They locked her in her room and prohibited her to meet the boy starting from that day. 

To prove to her parents that she is serious, desperate and frustrated, the girl took all her medicines and drink them all at once. The boy heard the news the day after. The girl is dead with a suicide note laying next to her: I am free.  

Like I told you in the beginning of this story that this is a simple love story about a girl with her high school uniform who sits in a train while playing with her handphone,

and about a boy with his business suit who sits next to her and reading his book.

Soon they talked and found themselves attracted to each other. Really a simple love story, right?

Actually, in real life, the story would have been even much more simpler.

Because that day in the train,

they will just ignore each other.

As the train make a brief stop in Kariya, the boy stepped out and the story ends.

Just like that.
