A willow tree stood in a corner of the Senso-ji temple grounds. A young couple dressed in yukata stood side by side under it. Although they were standing next to each other, they didn't seem to be getting along very well. I felt an invisible distance between them.

The girl seemed to be in a bad mood, and the boy beside her seemed to be in trouble. The boy was scratching his head incessantly as if they are fighting. Maybe the boy is trying to figure out the answer to the devil's question.

However, this is of no concern to the willow tree. The willow tree can only stand quietly to the side and watch what happens. When the wind blew occasionally, the willow tree swayed its branches above the young couple's heads. It looked as if it was telling the girl to cool down, or cheering the boy on.
