This is a translation of the first part of Kawachino Yuumi’s monologue in ZYPRESSEN. I really loved this monologue, and while I don’t have the patience to translate the whole monologue, I wanted to at least share the opening lines, which is still a very good passage on its own. There aren’t any spoilers here, so feel free to read on. Many thanks to @hacaplus, who edited my raw translation. Enjoy!
