Japanese Cryptic: From today, I'll live alone

Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)


Cryptic Story


 After overcoming the resistance* from my parents, I've started to live alone from today.

I woke up alone, ate the breakfast alone, and put the garbage in order before throwing it out.

I'm happy that I can finally live alone---something I longed for.

I lock up the door. I then greet the old lady from the neighborhood, who water the plants every morning.

After that, I head to school.
* The original word was 押し切って (oshikitte): The word can either mean overcoming the resistance or to press and cut something.

  1. From what I know, living alone in Japan as a teenager (school age) is rather hard. They go to onsen and take a bath together. It's very unnatural if the parents of the narrator let their child live alone without parents supervision.

    The narrator also did not inform us whether s/he lives alone in new house. That could be interpreted that s/he lives in the same house he lived. The one that changed is, the parents are gone. The "oshikitte" should explain the murder.

    1. The narrator cut the parents in pieces---he started living alone. Therefore, he woke up alone.
      The garbage contains his parents mutilated bodies.

      The old lady is someone he knows, as he is still living in the same house. Only difference is that his parents are gone now.

      You already decrypted the story quite well.
      To my knowledge, they only live alone when they go to study in universities. I don't think the school age teenagers live alone.
