On Coming of Age Day, Ohno Yasu saves the daughter of a rich business owner from falling and ruining her beautiful kimono. He tries to put her out of his mind.

I love the journal entry pacing of the story! Having it pace like that just felt natural. Well done! Also, I love the line "I regurgitated the wretched story". Nice!
