reading: one’s place by ハルミチヒロ

A short story included in Rakuen le Paradis issue 38. The editors describe it thus:



The past, present, and future of two women and a girl.

Basically, Miya has basically had two mothers ever since she was young, going with her mother to her mother’s friend Koyomi for meals. And now a teenager, Miya realizes what Koyomi feels for her mother may be more than just friendship.

The author, Harumi Chihiro, is quite good at these little dramas. Some other excellent choices from her include 彼岸 (Higan, or “Nirvana”) and カノン (Canon).
