【BIRTHDAY SWEETS】Tomohisa Kitakado
|-The birthday present that I’ve received from the members that made me happy would have to be Ryuji’s homemade cake.|
There were lots of fresh fruit and the design from the cream was incredibly beautiful......
Of course making it and preparing the design and ingredients took up time, so I felt an incredibly warm feeling from it.
|Interviewer||It’s a present that expresses KitaKore’s bond. Then if you have an episode from your birthday that you have deep memories of, please tell us.|
|Deep memories...... When I think about it, memories of a birthday I spent at an amusement park when I was young comes up.|
I saw how lively it was on TV and it was a place that I wanted to try going someday, so I was really looking forward to it......
When the day I tried going came, there weren’t any visitors.
|Interviewer||I wonder if it could have been the day it was closed.|
|No, it seemed that both my parents had reserved the place for me.|
But only now I know that it was something to make me happy......
The atmosphere at that time was different than I had imagined, so I was kind of lost—
|Interviewer||—Then finally I’ll pass you the relay question of “What present will you give for the birthday of the next BPRO member?”|
|Yes, the next ones at KiraKin’s Yuduki and Haruhi. Hmm, what would be good......|
The two of them are close, so matching motorcycles might be good for them.
Yuduki and Haruhi have good style, so tight rider suits would fit them well and the sight of them touring would make a nice picture.
If it’s bikes, then Tatsu seems like he’d know a lot, so I’ll ask him next...... Hm?
That’s right, those two don’t have their license.
If I had some privately owned land, I would be able to let them drive there, but that would be boring.
Hmm...... But I still want to give them something matching that suits the both of them as a present...... I’ll give it a little more thought.
Yuduki, Haruhi. I’ll definitely prepare a wonderful present, so wait patiently and look forward to it.
|Tsubasa, about my birthday, would there be any problems having the day off?|
|I think that as long as there aren’t any sudden jobs coming in, then it’ll be left open like this.|
|I see. Sorry for saying something selfish.|
|No, I’m glad that I was able to properly adjust things since you had told me earlier. Please enjoy your birthday!|
|Thanks, Tsubasa. I haven’t really had a day off recently.|
I’d be happy if I could take a breather with Ryuji.
|Do you have plans to go out anywhere?|
|Yeah. I thought that a day trip would be good, but this time, we’re just doing normal shopping and movies...... It’ll be enjoying an ordinary day like that.|
Ryuji also has various things he wants to do, so he’s waiting impatiently right now.
|Uh umm...... Kitakado-san, are you going to do something for Ryuji-kun?|
|That’s right. Ryuji said that he would listen to my selfishness no matter what.|
I think giving is more fun than receiving presents, so first I want to get a new jacket for Ryuji at a shop he’s interested in......
After that, I intend to look at kitchen appliances and furniture that the two of us will use.
|That’s...... Fufu, it kind of sounds like the way to spend a birthday I’d expect Kitakado-san to do.|
I can picture Ryuji-kun’s defeated face.
|Fu, then what kind of face would you make, Tsubasa?|
|Yeah. If your schedule is open, then I’d like for Tsubasa to come with us as well.|
I think spending time with my favorite two would make it a very happy birthday.
|Hearing you say that makes me happy. But if I was there, then you’d end up minding yourself around me......|
|That’s not true. This is my selfishness. So think of it as a birthday present to me, okay?|
|Tomo, even if it’s your birthday, you’re doing too much! I’m feeling like a mannequin.|
|Haha, sorry. But everything really suited you.|
|Well...... Tomo’s choices were as expected.|
So then, what now? You must be satisfied by now?
|I’m very satisfied. Ryuji, Tsubasa, thank you very much for coming along with me today.|
|I should be the one saying thank you. I had a lot of fun.|
However, I was the one who was given stuff, so is it really okay......
|Of course it’s fine. Today was my ideal birthday to me.|
However, if I could ask to be selfish one more time...... I’d be happy if we could go somewhere I want to finish things off.
|Are you going to buy something else again?|
|Fu, let’s leave buying stuff aside and how about we just go look?|
It’s a place where I want to take you two to no matter what.
|Wah, so beautiful......|
|I found this recently, it’s a antique lamp shop I’m interested in.|
|Rather than a shop, it feels more like a gallery. All the lamps feel like art pieces.|
|Yeah. The atmosphere is really nice too...... Ah, that one is cute! I’m going to go look over there.|
|Have fun, Ryuji.|
Well? Are you interested as well, Tsubasa?
|Yes, a lot! The light from the lamps are very warm and amazing.|
|I also like that too. They feel gentle and somehow nostalgic......|
|(Kitakado-san’s side profile...... The light from the stained glass is reflecting onto him and it’s incredible beautiful—)|
|Is there something on my face?|
|N, no, it’s...... Sorry. Bringing me to such an incredible place like this...... Please let me return the favor.|
|Favor? This was just something I wanted to do.|
Today was really fun. More than you two could imagine.
It was an incredibly happy time that would make me think something childish like if only my birthday was everyday.
However...... Perhaps I pushed Tsubasa too much?
|No, that’s not......! I was also happy to be able to see Kitakado-san’s smile so much today.|
|Fufu, thanks. I’m satisfied with just those words.|
Ah...... That’s right. Perhaps I should request next year’s present now.
|That’s...... A little too early, right?|
|That’s true. But Tsubasa was the one who said telling you early helped you out, right?|
That’s why...... Be sure to leave my birthday next year open for the 3 of us.
