Couple Watching at Sukagawa Peony Garden

While my eldest sister, her kids, and Dan were watching the Ultraman show at the event area, the rest of us decided to have ice cream. It was a hot spring day and we wanted some refreshment under the shade.

When we arrived at Sukagawa Peony Garden, we saw this elderly couple at one corner. They were in their 60's. The man was feeding his wife with ice cream. He'd gently pull the cone away when she had enough in her mouth. And he'd wipe her lips with tissue paper once in a while.

The woman seemed to be recovering from a shock. Her face was devoid of expression. She was blankly staring at one spot the whole time. She just nibbled the ice cream, never opened her mouth wide, like how I had mine.

They sat there in silence.

It was the most romantic scene I've ever witnessed in my life. Most romantic. I wished I looked at them more closely, but I didn't mean to be nosy.

After a few minutes, they left their table. Hand in hand.

And I was teary-eyed.
