When Couples Talk

Posted by: Ms Ayain Ms Aya's Papers

During my trip in Japan, we went to Umeda Sky Building, which is an observatory deck in Osaka.

I can’t tell you precisely how high the building is however, the night view from above is fascinating and breath taking. It’s ashamed that I cannot provide you a visual aid on the night scenery as it was dark and my camera could not snap nicely.

The sky building is located in the middle of the city so basically from the top deck, you could view the city and admire the sky scrappers plus stars, should there be any. XD

Well when I got up there, I admit that the first thing that came to mind was how pain my legs were because we spent the day walking to many places. Secondly, it became colder and only then I noticed the awesome view.

My friends were busy taking pictures while I strayed to look around. I did for a moment just stood in one place to capture the image of the scenery in my mind however, it got boring real fast. There weren’t many stars to begin with.

So this sheep, decided to observe other things.. Namely people. :D

I noticed there were quite some couples around and I got curious, “What exactly do couples do in a moment like this? What do they talk about? Is it like how we see in the movies where they say and do romantic things?” There were Japanese and other foreigners so it made me very curious to find out.

With my busybody mode on, I stood close to the couples to observe and eavesdrop on their conversations. My Japanese is not proficient however I could grasped what most of the Japanese couples were saying. Well.. Simply because… They did not speak much. -_-

Most of them kept on exclaiming to one another, “Sugoi! Suteki! Kirei! Takai! Sugoi! Sugoi!” which means Wonderful! Beautiful! So high! Wonderful! =_=

I can understand that they were amazed and overwhelmed but the whole sugoi~~ went on for too long until I thought to myself, “Fuck it with the sugois and say something else lar!”

I moved from couple to couple until there was one that seemed to be a surprise gift for his girl friend. The guy told the girl that he brought her to surprise her for something and to spend time with her. He asked if she liked what she was seeing and of course, full of sugoi~ and kirei~ came out from the girl’s mouth.

After that, they just cuddled and seemingly turned into a stone — a very happy one.

I went on to observe the non-Japanese couples. I could not understand their language but as for gestures, they were cuddling more than talking with each other.

With this observation, I came to a conclusion that couples don’t need to talk so much as they just want to hold each other in silence.

… It was boring to watch the couples so I ended up squatting in one corner, wondering what to eat and… other random stuffs. :/
