short romance novel......By Pierre
After suffering for 22 years of my life, finally I have my own
apartment in Funabashi, a suburb of Tokyo. It is a cute place
with plenty of open spaces and houses are not as crowded as they are in Tokyo. While I do not know many people here, I
feel much better since almost everyone here seems to be from
some place not Funabashi. Thus, it appears that no one cares
who you are, what you do, and what is going on in your life.
That works just fine for me since I was desperately looking for
this kind of anonymity for a long time.
In my parental home,
as I walked in or out, I had to greet a million people and, of
course, listen to those nasty comments from the neighborhood boys, who would not stop commenting on my appearance,
regardless of what I did. I have decorated my small apartment as if it is the Imperial
Hotel in Tokyo. There is nothing more comforting than my futon and
when I open my window, I can breathe the sea breeze from Tokyo Bay. If the sky is clear, I can also see all those ships
from far off countries ready to ship products to and from Japan.
During the morning and weekend, when I am at home, I also here the sound of the planes landing or taking off from Haneda
I have everything that a woman of my age needs. My
refrigerator is tiny but I like it since it has my favorite green
the onigiri that I have for breakfast every day. Recently, I have
started to enjoy a glass of chilled rose wine before bed, something that I had never done before.
I have also bought a lot of new dresses - the cute ones that I
have always wished to have but was too conscious to wear because of what people would think about me. While I could
not have imagined using a mini-skirt in the shitamachi area, I
could now even wear a
short summer dresses with spaghetti straps. I had also started using
shorts and tank tops and it was
very common for me now to go around without
bra. I have also been taking belly dancing

improve how I walk.
||Life is so much better now and I have almost everything that I
need. My job as an Office Manager is easy and
fun and I make enough money to maintain my lifestyle. My parents call me
often and I still spend a weekend with them every month. As I accumulate a bit more money though, I plan to shop for some
cool dresses, especially shoes. May be I can even go to Hong Kong for a short trip so that I can enjoy some authentic
Chinese food and buy a Fendi bag.
What is missing in my life then? I still do not have someone to love, to have a date with, to talk on the phone every night
before going to bed, and even make love with him once in a while.

feel extremely lonely, especially during the weekends. As all my colleagues make plans on Thursday and Friday to go on
dates during the weekend and then spend Monday to Wednesday talking about them, I am the only one who seems
to have done nothing during the weekend except
cleaning my apartment and
laundry. I wish some dream boy
would come into my life and make my life full of happiness and joy!
