Chapter 1:- Summer Bliss


Chapter 1


--- The Account of Seiji Narimiya ---

She looked at me with a smile on her face.

I smiled back.

It was summer. School was off. I was in complete bliss.

There was nothing better than this.

With her beside me, nothing could go wrong.

"Let's go." I heard myself say.

She nodded.

Seiji and Aoi have been inseparable childhood friends and eventually, high school sweethearts. Believing in naive dreams and love, all seems well until a tragedy separates them with a chasm of frozen time. As one struggles with the aftermath, the world moves on, while the other remains still.

Battered by temptation and the pressure to grow up, he discovers that life is more complicated than he thought – and that the heart and mind is quite vulnerable to change. Secondhand Memories is an emotional coming-of-age story: a journey about the meaning of growing up, love, loss and sacrifice.

Originally serialized online in 2008, Secondhand Memories pioneered the Japanese cell phone novel phenomenon in the English-speaking world, marking a moment in history of a new literary movement among thousands of young writers and readers globally. The remarkably unique fusion of simple haiku-like poetic technique and prose narrative has re-envisioned technology, youth culture, community and literature. Book One will be published in print in late 2014 by Sakura Publishing, eagerly anticipated by fans and fellow cell phone novelists.
