But My Grandfather

(Translated and arranged by Saya)
A high school boy fell in love with a girl. They both went to the same school in a rural area.

The girl lived with her grandfather in an old house on the outskirts of the town. She was a kind girl who looked after her grandfather well, and was very popular with other kids.
The boy belonged to a photography club, and one day he asked the girl to pose as a model for his pictures. From then on, they became closer and closer, until they started dating in secrecy.

The boy wanted to go and study in Tokyo once he left the high school.
He wanted the girl to come with him, but the girl said she couldn't leave the town because she had to look after her grandfather.

Whenever the boy suggested they do some activities together, she would often start off by saying, "I'm sorry but my grandfather..." and make excuses about why she couldn't do them with him.
The boy felt irritated by this, and as the time passed, he became increasingly colder to her because of it.
He would shout at her: "Stop saying 'but my grandfather, but my grandfather' !"
 
And then came the day when the boy was due to leave for Tokyo.
He went to the girl's house to say goodbye, but the girl, who received him at the front door, said, "please take me with you." 
 
The boy asked, "but what are you going to do with your grandfather?" 
The girl replied, "he is alright now."

He sensed something was wrong, and went inside the house.
There on the bed, he found her grandfather lying dead, and the whole place was covered in blood. 
He turned around to find the girl standing behind him, holding a bloody knife.
"My grandfather is asleep now, so please don't disturb him."
The boy was overcome with sheer panic and horror, and ran out of the house. He left the town immediately for Tokyo. 

For the next ten years or so, he never set foot in his hometown again. 
He remembered about the girl with regret, thinking that she committed the crime out of deep love for him.
He was the root cause of it all. He initially felt guilty, but over time the memory faded away, and it became all but a distant past. 

Then one day, he received a letter announcing the date of the next reunion at his high school. He decided to attend it this time.

At the reunion party, he enjoyed drinking and talking to his old friends.
He then remembered about the girl and felt an urge to ask his schoolmates as to what happened to her after that fateful day, without mentioning he was involved in it in any way.
 
But no one whom he asked knew anything about the incident. Even those who took photos of her with him did not remember about her.

He was completely baffled by this, and decided to ask around in the town to see if anyone else remembered about her.

Finally, he met an old lady who knew about the girl, but she said, "that happened more than 50 years ago."

"Impossible!"
He became confused and started doubting his own mind. 

But he knew where her old house was. He searched his memories and followed the familiar paths that led to the place where the house used to stand.

However, when he arrived there, he found only a steep cliff.
And he could find no trace of a house ever having been built there.

  9. Should that ever happen to me, god forbid, that would certainly have me shouting "MADRE DE DIOS!" even though I don't even speak Spanish.

  14. Thanks for this post!! I enjoyed reading it! After reading other people’s comments about the girl being a possible ghost, I wonder if the boy even looked at the photos he took of her and if he still has them. I kind of believe she’s a ghost but at the same time I don’t cause this was 50 years ago so I understand if the classmates don’t remember anything at all. Idk, was she a ghost ? The house is also gone, so it’s either he was seeing a ghost house, or over time there’s been construction and rebuilding of the hometown and they removed that house.

  15. I'm that kind of guy who would check the school records. Memories are quite tricky. Who the hell is that ghost anyway?

  17. Well I kinda think he maybe had an odd special time skipp, or aternative dimension type thing. I don't disagree with the possibility of her being a ghost either. I just kinda wanted to suggest something else.
