Umarekawattemo, Watashi to Kekkonshite masu ka? Vol. 2 Ch. 10

Nanaten here back in my hometown. Yesterday afternoon , my uncle passed away. He succumbed to an infection from a wound at his left foot. He couldn't go to a hospital because he doesn't have an insurance, so his wound just sat there for a month until it was inflamed.

First time I met him was a couple of years ago. I suddenly hear the news that my aunt had married. My aunt had spent the past ten years taking care of my great aunt before she passed away a year prior. She was happy to finally have a companion to spend her time with. He was a pretty chill middle aged man. I thought he suit my aunt's fiery personality.

The last time I met him was a couple of days ago. I just arrived at home and decided to give them a visit. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw him bedridden. From what I hear from my aunt, he was pricked on his foot by something during his fishing trip a month prior. So he took it out using a knife. Unfortunately, the knife had a rust on it. And by the time he got back from the trip he had already contracted with tetanus. I said to him "Have you get checked in a clinic? Or a hospital?" unfortunately, a tetanus shot is all they could afford as he doesn't have an insurance. By the time I arrived, the wound was so inflamed, I couldn't even look at it. He couldn't even get up to eat the food I brought at my mom's request. The only thing I regret was that I couldn't get a ginger drink he asked then. So as consolidation, I bought a pack of instant oatmeal the next morning. He was happy and thanked me. That was the last word he spoke to me.

A few hours before he died, I was planning to spend the weekend with them. As the time of writing this post, I am currently spending the night at their house for the wake. I am writing this post on my phone, so what I wroteis probably not enough for this sort of eulogy.

Anyway, back to the manga. This chapter is a flashback to the time of Kauro's pregnancy. A character is introduced: Toranosuke's and Kaoru's granddaughter, so all that worry I had the previous chapter has gone knowing that it'll be fine. But that doesn't mean that it is not intense. Toranosuke knew that Kaoru sees Ryunosuke as a dependable figure. And I'm pretty sure he knew that Ryunosuke has feelings for Kaoru. That caused him to have an inferiority complex when it comes to his own brother. He feels that Ryu was a better candidate to be Kaoru's future partner. That's the center of conflict in this chapter. On the side note, I can't remember the difference between a typhoon and a hurricane. Which one hits Japan more frequent?

So here's the chapter about celebrating life coated by my eulogy. Let me know if you find any error or mistake. Next week is T&T update.
