Lesson 186 日本とちがうね
Kota and Nigel are walking home from school and talking.
I watched a teen drama show on TV last night. I saw the main character eat dinner with his girlfriend. He gave her flowers for Valentine’s Day. Is that normal?
Of course! Is there something wrong with that?
In Japan, typically girls give boys chocolate on Valentine’s Day. Then, on White Day, boys give something back to girls.
White Day? We only have Valentine’s Day here. Anyone can give something to someone special. What’s up?
Are you trying to decide what to get for Briony?
Oh, um… I don’t know. Speaking of which, what are you going to get for Sapna?
Huh? Oh! Um….
Lesson 187 どんなプレゼントにしよう?
Angie is in the kitchen. Kota enters.
Hey, Angie, what’s an appropriate gift for Valentine’s Day?
Oh, well, anything is OK. For example, cards, flowers, or sweets are common.
Do you and Harry exchange gifts on Valentine’s Day?
Of course! Actually, I saw him at the mall today. But he didn’t see me. I saw him buying a stuffed animal.
Oh, that must be your Valentine’s gift.
Probably. You don’t have to buy anything fancy. Something personal is good.
Maybe I’ll make homemade chocolate. I can make chocolate with a special shape.
That’s a great idea! I’m sure Briony will love it!
No! Uh, I was thinking about making it for… everyone!
Lesson 188 どきどきのバレンタインデー
It’s Valentine’s Day at Hoggett High School. Nigel finds Sapna outside the classroom.
Hey, Sapna! I’ve been looking for you.
I made this for you. For Valentine’s Day!
It’s a photo album!
I created it on my computer. I put in lots of pictures of us.
A picture of us in the musical! How thoughtful!
I’m glad you like it.
I have this card for you, too. Here!
It’s lovely! There’s a link to a website and a password written in it.
You can access a music playlist with it. It’s a collection of my favorite duets. You can practice them. And then we can sing them at karaoke together!
Lesson 189 気が合うね、わたしたち
During break on Valentine’s Day, Kota finds Briony on the grass.
Briony! I was looking for you. Um, I wanted to give you something. For Valentine’s Day.
Oh? What is it? Chocolates! They’re in the shape of surfboards!
Yeah, I made them for you.
I’m not sure why you’re laughing.
Because… look! Here’s your present!
You made chocolates for me, too? And they’re also in the shape of surfboards! What a coincidence!
I guess our imaginations are similar.
Oh, and you’ve written my name in Japanese on the surfboards!
It’s a little messy.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
