About Mr. Square(4)

“I was tired of being with Mr. Diamond, because I have to obey him.”

Mr. Square started complaining about Mr. Diamond.

The fairy said to him quietly,

“If you have the same shape, you can’t learn anything from each other.”

His heart wandered much more.

The Beginning Of The Star(15)/English

 

About Mr. Diamond(4)

 

“I’m fine fine! 

But when it’s dark outside I’m not fine, because I don’t like darkness.”

Mr.Diamond needs someone to help me when it’s dark.

He is always thinking what is convenient for him.

He met a fairy with seven colors.

He said to her,

“You are such a convenient friend!”

The fairy asked him,

“You choose your friend because of convenience?”

“Yes!!”

He answered without a doubt.

About Mr.Triangle(4)


Mr. Triangle has black and white colors.

Since it is of opposite colors,

he sometimes get confused to what he really is.

He doesn’t want to be proud, but he has to.

Because he keeps his mind by standing out his dignity.

He wonders which one is the real him.

What is his wish?

He doesn’t have any ideas right now.

Suddenly, a shining shimmering seven-colored fairy came into being.

He said to her, “Would you be my friend?”

The fairy didn’t say anything.

He asked her once again.

“I’ll see you again, won’t I?”

He kept on waiting for her answer for a while.

About Mr.Square(3)

 

“I’m tired of being with Mr. Diamond,

so I think I want to keep company with you this time.”

Mr. Square tells a fairy whom he met at the beach.

But the fairy treats him coldly.

He said to her, “I want to be with you, because you bring out the best in me.

All I need is an outer appearance.”

He kept on talking for a while.

She said to him, “What values always involves heart.”

(From “The Beginning Of The Star”)

He likes her very much, so his mind begins to wander.

About Mr. Triangle(3)

 

“There’s nothing that has the same shape as mine in this world.”

(From “The Beginning Of The Star”)

“There is nothing that has the same shape as mine in the world.”

There are many kinds of countries and people in the world.

When people gather one by one, they also bring many ideas.

Even if you cannot have your wish granted all by yourself,

there are many ways to come out well by some advices from others.

If you cannot get a good idea, then ask someone humbly.

 They will let you know the good ideas.

A fairy said to Mr. Triangle,

“Having a heart means being considerate of others.”

You will feel relieved a little bit when you realize everybody has a different heart.

If you don’t seek the same opinions to others,

you might put yourself in another place.

“I don’t understand what you are saying.”

Mr. Triangle starts thinking about her.
