「とうとうんだのかい」と主人しゅじんをぱちつかせて

「そこまでこうとはおもわなかった」と迷亭めいてい自分じぶんはなあたまをちょいとつまむ。

「飛び込んだあととおくなって、しばらくは夢中むちゅうでした。やがてがさめてさむはあるが、どこもれたとこなにない、みずんだようなかんもしない。たしかに飛び込んだはずだがじつ不思議ふしぎだ。こりゃへんだといてそこいらを見渡みわたおどろきましたね。水のなかへ飛び込んだつもりでいたところが、つい間違まちがってはし真中まんなかりたので、そのときは実に残念ざんねんでした。まえうし間違まちがいだけであのこえ所へ行くこと出来できなかったのです」寒月かんげつにやにやわらいながられいのごとく羽織はおりひも荷厄介にやっかいにしている。

「ハハハハこれは面白おもしろぼく経験けいけんているところがだ。やはりゼームス教授きょうじゅ材料ざいりょうになるね。人間にんげん感応かんおうだい写生文しゃせいぶんにしたらきっと文壇ぶんだんを驚かすよ。……そしてその〇〇まるまるさんの病気びょうきはどうなったかね」と迷亭先生せんせい追窮ついきゅうする

二三日前にさんちまえ年始ねんしに行きましたら、もんうち下女げじょ羽根はねいていましたから病気は全快ぜんかいしたものと見えます」

主人は最前さいぜんから沈思ちんしていであったが、この時ようやくくちひらいて、「僕にもある」とけぬ

「あるって、なにがあるんだい」迷亭の眼中がんちゅうに主人などは無論むろんない。

「僕のも去年きょねんくれの事だ」

「みんな去年の暮は暗合あんごうみょうですな」と寒月が笑う。けた前歯まえばのうちに空也餅くうやもちいている。

「やはり同日どうじつ同刻どうこくじゃないか」と迷亭がまぜかえ

Rough translation

"You finally went and jumped in?" The master asked with bewildered eyes.

"I didn't think it would come to that." Meitei tugs at the tip of his own nose.

"After I jumped, all went blank. The moment became a dream. When I regained my senses, I was cold but not at all wet, and I didn't seem to have swallowed any water. This was odd, as I knew for a fact that I'd jumped. With a sense of wonder, I looked around and was taken by surprise. Though intending for the water, I'd in fact jumped backward and landed in the middle of the bridge. I was greatly disappointed. By mistaking backward for forward, I'd lost my chance to unite with that voice." Floating a grin, Kangetsu tugged characteristically at his haori ties.

"Ho, ho, ho, ho. Intriguing indeed. Uncannily similar to my own experience. Professor James could take this up. As a sketch of the subconscious mind, it would not go unnoticed in literary circles. ... By the way, what of that certain young lady's illness?" Meitei followed up with a query.

"Several days ago, when I stopped to pay my New Year's respects, she was out in the yard playing battledore with the maidservant. She'd recovered fully and was back to her usual self."

At this point the master, who'd been reticent all along, finally asserted himself. "I have one too," he said.

"What's that? One what?" It hadn't occurred to Meitei that the master might contribute.

"Mine too was at year's end."

"Quite a coincidence, all at year's end," laughed Kangetsu. A piece of mochi clung to his broken front tooth.

"Let me guess now, the same day and the same time?" Meitei ribbed the master.
