The best friend


Daisuke contacts his old school friend Yoshihisa through Facebook. They chat online.
大介: やあ、義久。また話ができてうれしいよ。わぁ、どれくらいになるかな? 10年?

Daisuke: Hi Yoshihisa. Good to talk to you again. Wow, how long has it been? 10 years?
義久: 大介! うん、同窓会で会って以来、10年か11年ぶりだね。

Yoshihisa: Daisuke!! Yes, it's been 10 or 11 years since we met at the school reunion.
大介: その後どうしてる? 今もサッカークラブのコーチをやってるの?

Daisuke: So how are things? Still working as a coach at the football club?
義久: いいや、あれはもう辞めたんだ。

Yoshihisa: No, not really.
大介: でも、サッカー大好きじゃなかったっけ? いつも雄三と一緒にサッカーしてたよね。雄三はところでどうしてるんだい?

Daisuke: But you loved to play football, didn't you? You used to play with Yuzo all the time. How is Yuzo by the way?
義久: 雄三? ああ・・・何があったか知らない? あいつ、2004年の津波で亡くなったんだよ。

Yoshihisa: Yuzo? Oh.. don't you know what happened to him? He died in the tsunami in 2004.
大介: ええっ・・・! 知らなかった。

Daisuke: Oh, my god...! I didn't know that.
義久: 奥さんの祥子さんと一緒にタイのカオラックに行って、帰らぬ人になったんだよ。僕の親友だったんだ。

Yoshihisa: He went to "Khao Lak" with his wife Shoko and never came back. He was my best friend.
大介: それは本当に残念だったね。いいやつだったよな・・・!

Daisuke: So sorry to hear that. He was a nice guy!
