theme #08: our own world

When Tatsunosuke looked at Ryouma, he saw the whole world reflected. It was in his clothes, in the way he wore hakama and /gi/, but instead of /obi/, there were belts, and instead of /geta/, there were boots. It was in his dreadlocked hair. It was in his stupid glasses and his stupid hat. It was in his skin and how Tatsunosuke sometimes wondered whether or not he was really Japanese, if he was a disgraceful, halfbreed child.

And when Ryouma kissed him for the first time under the willow by the river in Shimabara, Tatsunosuke could feel that everything.

Translation Notes:
hakama - pants-type things worn by samurai
gi - two piece outfit worn by some kinds of martial artists (i.e. karate, aikido, judo, etc.), and usually worn under the hakama
obi - the piece of fabric used to hold kimono and yukata closed
geta - sandal-like, traditional Japanese shoes
