The Tree Hole was wide open.

It was the Tree Hole in the big tree growing behind the secret base.

Through the crevice between the stones, she...Meiko was looking this way.

I was more and more scared, stuffing stones inside recklessly, for I could not throw stones at Meiko. It would have been much better if I hadn't said "I hope we could meet again" on that day.

Meiko was inside the Tree Hole.

From that day onward, she continued hiding inside, silently.
