小説(連載)

「蒼い想い」
洋祐は、舟に立ちながら忙しく切符に鋏を入れている改札員の後背で、何故か立ち止まった。車の行き交う目白通りを睨むと、彼は静かに顎を突き出し、深く息を吸った。そして再び歩み始め、舟の平板へ切符を軽く放り、眩しく視界の開けた外界に出た。
どんなに心待ちにしていただろうか。最早何ものにも捉われず、過多な遠慮は一切無要、そして自分が自分である為のここが第一歩なのだ。そんな希望に満ちた思いだった。

千石町に在る工業高校を、やっとの思いで卒業したのが半月前だった。タブロウに関わるものに憧れてはいたが、一ミリの文化的な雰囲気にも無縁なまま、開放された檻の小世界で三年間を過ごした。
彼の高校生時代は、校内も荒んだ時期で、留年が度重なり卒業前に成人していた生徒もいた。校舎内で喫煙する生徒達や、授業を抜けて雀荘に行く者。屋上で喧嘩をしている生徒達、果ては大型トラックを運転して登校し、校庭の隅に無許可で平然と駐車する生徒までいた。

洋祐は、まだ普通免許を持っていなかったが、どこか四輪の安全性を軽蔑しているところがあり、やはり爆走する度に命の危険を伴うバイクは、自分の生き方とシンクロして最高だと思っていた。当時、洋祐は一〇年落ちのハーレーダビッドソンと言うバイクで高校に通っていた。四輪に乗った安全志向のオヤジ共は皆間抜けに見えた。
彼は、下校時には級友の自宅がある北砂町に必ず寄った。北砂町にはフラワーなる喫茶店が有り、茶店脇の団地には、同年代のガテン系少年が数人居た。彼等は、仕事が終わって六時以降になると、自分で買ったバイクを自慢するために、フラワーの横あたりまで出て来るのだ。洋祐たちは、ガテン系少年たちと自然融合してグループ化していった。

或る夏の土曜日の夜、日比谷公園の晴海通り側路肩には、公園の端から端まで数百台にも及ぶ大型バイクで埋め尽くされていた。それは、通行人から見ても実に異様な光景で、正に圧倒される景観だった。
自慢のダボハン(W1S/カワサキ)を、改造チョッパーにしてデモンストレーションしているサングラス野郎達、円陣を組んで騒いでいるグループ、沿石にへたり込んで煙草を吹かしている奴等、未だマッポの規制も無かった昭和の良き時代だった。

映画では「イージーライダー」が大ヒットして、某暴走族もメジャーではなかったころ、本当に単車が好きで、走りを楽しんでいる者達が、関東一円の何処からとも無くうじゃうじゃと集まって来ていた。この頃ヤンキー達は各自徒歩で尖っていた時代で、未だノーヘルで道路を走れていた時代だった。

グレイのアスファルトにハッツいたら(転倒したら)即命と引替えなのが、煙草の似合わないガキ共の存在感を更にリアルアップしていった。初めは数人の仲間同士で走っていても、段々メンバーが増えて行き、数一〇台のバイクが一斉に走り始めると、その爆音たるや公害に等しく、世間の注目を徐々に引き寄せるようになって行った。数が増えると最後尾を走っている単車数台が信号等で止まり、追いつかなくなってバラバラになることも増えてきた。この辺りから赤信号に強引に進入して、青信号の車を止め、全隊を一気に通過させる者が出て来た。それも勝手にやったりやらなかったり、頗るまとまりがなかったので、全隊を指揮する者の必要性も出て来た。丁度暴走族が出現する創生期であった。
日比谷公園で一服したあと、身内の五、六台で246号を六本木まで南下するのが洋祐達の何時ものパターンだった。

土曜の夜に 日比谷公園へ行ってみな
マジな男がたくさんいるぜぇ

突風に劈くキャブトンの唸り声
根性フルスロットルで
魂の爆音を聞いてみな
鳥肌全開で脳みそが転倒するぜぇ

グレイのアスファルトにハッツいて
木偶になっちまったら
俺たちが仇を取ってやるぜぇ

ミッドナイトエンジェル
夜明けまでトップギアだぜ
禁断ゾーンまでブレーキオフだ

一秒先のことなんか
知ったこっちゃねぇんだよ
そこの四つ輪共 気を付けな
火の玉ヤローがブッ飛んでくぜぇ!

    I was sitting in my kitchen drinking a cup of coffee and cleaning my camera . I was really down and the rain outside didn’t help. I had just turned 78. I had lost my wife last year after a short battle with cancer. I missed her terribly. We had been married for almost 60 years. Little did I know my life was going to change.

    I was thinking about selling our home since the reason for buying such a big home was gone. It was large because my wife had several sewing machines and needed the room. It was a pre-manufactured home with about 2,000 square feet. Due to our snoring, I lived in one end of the home in a small bedroom and she had lived in the other end in the master bedroom. Around the walls were pictures of my wife that I had taken when we were younger. Almost all were her in the nude. She was a great model and very beautiful.

    I was getting up to get another cup of coffee when the doorbell rang. I don’t get visitors and even my daughters didn’t visit very often. I opened the door and there stood a beautiful young woman. She was about 5′ 4″ with long dark hair. She was wearing a halter top and I could see she had, although small, great tits. It took me several seconds to recognize she was my new next door neighbor. She and her husband had just recently moved in.

    She said I’m Jennifer your next door neighbor. I said good morning and asked her if she wanted a cup of coffee. She said that would be great and followed me into the kitchen. I noticed her looking at all the nude photos of my wife. When we sat down I told her those were pictures of my late wife. She asked if I was a photographer and I said not a professional one. I now take general pictures, usually of flowers and sunsets. We talked for a little while about various subject. She finally said the reason she came over was to see if she could use my phone. They were trying get a phone of their own installed. I handed her my cell phone. I went to get us more coffee as I heard her talking. I heard her say that was more than they could afford. As I came back I could see tears in her eyes. As I handed her a tissue she said they were having financial problems. She got up to go and thanked me for the coffee. As I walked her out she stopped to look at my wife’s pictures. Before I could stop my mouth I said I had a lot more in my side of the house. She smiled and said she would like to see them sometime. She walked out and I had a view of the beautiful tight ass. I thought to myself that her husband was very lucky.

    The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
