A shoeless and shirtless boy was sitting on the ground by the wayside. He had a chopper in his hand and was just cutting wood with it. He seemed to make a straight pole without branches. I wondered what he would do with the pole. Perhaps, he wanted to begin a swordfight with his friends.

When I came close to him, he stopped cutting. He stretched his arms and smiled bashfully. His eyes were filled with curiosity and shined. Watching his smile, I thought I might forget how to smile like him.
