tears of shogun/父の涙



I saw my dad cry once.

One night, while he was drinking at home,  he murmured that he had only his father after his mother died. Then, his eyes suddenly became red and misty, tears slipped, and he carelessly wiped them with his hand. My grandfather had passed a few months earlier.
I was in shock. My dad was the grand alpha, the shogun of the house, and never showed much emotion. He had been so much in control even at the funeral. We, kids, became uncomfortable, averted our eyes and quietly left the room that night.

It has been over ten years since my dad passed away. He has both parents with him now, I suppose.
