On the third day morning of my visit to Chitose, Japan, I was walking in the forest and there was a wooden stairway.
While I was walking down the stairway, something seized my eyes.
A leaf frozen under the snow looked so mysteriously beautiful and captured my mind.
As if I had become a naughty boy, I wanted to break that beauty. So tempted to own or ruin it, I was playing with its stem trying to pull a leaf out of the snow, and I did it.
At that moment, I felt like a secret magic was released into the world.
Inspired by this experience, I created a simple story. Enjoy!
