From a short story "Mediocrity." Kimiko and Haruka, who are best friends in high school, are now 35 years old. Kimiko sees the imposing figure of Haruka, who has a career as a cooking researcher, and wonders where their roads divided thinking herself gutless. But when she reunited with Haruka, she found that Haruka also writhed in vague anxiety and mixed feelings to her ex-boyfriend. Meanwhile, Haruka was tweeting about cooking points in work mode, which made Kimiko break into a smile.
