This short story is written in "Filament -Yuki Urushibara Sakuhinshu-". Although the author/illustrator, Yuki Urushibara, claimed it is a urban legend, the story could not be found in the Internet. Very likely, this little sad piece is written by Yuki. Especially when it companies a short illustration about a forbidden sister/brother love, the story seems darker and remorseful.
