Yume No Kuni Chapter 5


[DREAMLAND]CHAPTER END: REALITY AND DREAM

Suddenly, I was standing in front of a deserted amusement park.

In the shimmering heat of hot air, the cicada’s singing seemingly filled the amusement park.

That’s right. I finally remembered.

She has not been found yet.

That was, the moment I moved.

She had been missing.

And, the place she was last seen was, this amusement park.

With it as the start, the amusement park started to decline.

[Tomoe]

Even though I said we will always be together.

Growing up, I said we would come back together.

I, couldn’t even fulfill that one promise.

[I, have become a grown up you know!]

~step~ I moved a step forward.

[Tomoe]

Dream Castle of the Amusement Park

Surely, there she was, there was a strange feeling that tells that Tomoe was there.

I arrived at the Dream Castle while sweating, unlike the outside; it is much cooler inside it.

[Hey, Tomoe. I came to meet you.]

I roamed around the Dream castle over and over, until I found it, a hidden door.

Tomoe has to be there, surely.

Without hesitating, I opened the door.

[Tomoe]

The inside was covered in mold, dust and cobwebs.

Inside the room were famous torture instructs such as the Iron Virgin and the Rack.

And in the back, there was a small greyish, white lump.

[I finally found you, Tomoe]

I pushed the carcasses, the dusts and molds then lifted that small skull into my arms.

Was it frightening? Was it painful?

To my close friend who had changed greatly, I nestled close.

You don’t have to go anywhere anymore.

I don’t care if it’s just an illusion.

I and Tomoe, will always be together.

In this amusement park, an eternal dream, together.

In a world, where anyone couldn’t disturb us.

Ah, I could see the illusion.

Tomoe, laughing and reaching to me this way.

Quietly, I closed my eyes.
