Suddenly, a strong flash of light startled me - and then another. Garden shadows disappeared. The view where a moment before had been so bright and sunny was now dark and hazy. A profound weakness overcame me, so I stopped to regain my strength. All over the right side of my body I was cut and bleeding. Where was my wife? Suddenly thoroughly alarmed, I began to yell for her Yaeko-san, pale and frightened, her clothes torn and blood stained I pressed my hand to the bleeding area, Could I go on?
