[Hotarubi/Firefly Days] Satoshi remembers Nao under the cherry trees.
He wasn't thinking about how, a year ago, he had wheeled Nao around Ueno park as fast as he could, and how people had looked at them like they were insane.
He wasn't thinking about how Nao had told him later that night that the afternoon he had spent with Satoshi had been the first time he'd felt alive in a long time.
He wasn't thinking about how feeling alive was the best thing you must be able to feel when you know you're dying.
He wasn't thinking about Nao's smile through his oxygen mask.
He wasn't thinking about how they could have been happy.
They could have been together.
They could have been here, looking up at the sun through the cherry trees together.
'But in a way,' Yamaoka Satoshi thought to himself, a light breeze dancing around him, knocking the cherry blossoms free of their branches and into his eyes, 'we are.'
And he smiled, blinking away his tears.
