"It's so high," Chie said breathlessly. She stared with delight at the glass windows to drink in the sight. It was just about sunset. The sky was splattered with red, orange and yellow streaks like a painter had gone mad with his paints. "What a beautiful sight…"

Yousuke smiled. Taking her for a ride in the Ferris wheel was his best idea so far.

"I can see my house from here," she exclaimed excitedly.

"You're joking," he teased. She pouted and pointed. His eyes widened. It turned out to be true. Inaba was a small town so it was quite easy to look for familiar places on the map that they saw on top of the Ferris wheel. "Wow... You're right."

Chie's voice was soft and tender. "When I was a little girl, I used to wonder what was beyond the horizon. I used to think that when I grew up, I would go on an adventure that will take me away from Inaba. I wanted to see the world..."

Yousuke's eyes softened. He wrapped an arm around her shoulders. She leaned closer to him, still staring into the distance. "I wanted to go to the big city," she sighed.

"Someday, we will cross that mountain," he whispered gently as he pointed towards the distant silhouette of the mountain sitting on Inaba's borders "and we will go away to the big city and then the world."

Chie couldn't help but smile at his promise. "I will go anywhere with you," she confessed.

"I'll never leave you," Yousuke whispered against her lips. He sealed his new promise with a soft kiss.
