「On July 63rd(7月63日に)」





I met her accidentally, she said she just flung out of space.
It was the evening of July 63rd.

I didn’t know what she talked about, perhaps she said truth.
She must be an extraterrestrial-intelligence or something like angel, or such as Harpy in Greek mythology.

Anyways, it seemed like this is the first time on earth for her, so I taught her many things, like the way to drink milk, that there is a water, ice, and air.

People love plenty of plants, due to all the people have anxiety and want to escape from it, and plants help that.
When she pointed at bird, I taught her there are a lot of animals living in this world, not just humans.

She said to me “I can be adopted”, then I spent the rest of 867days of July with her, and one day she was gone.
I don’t remember the date, but it was cloudy day.
