Everyone loves the first day of school, right? New year, new classes, new friends. It’s a day full of potential and hope, before all the dreary depressions of reality show up to ruin all the fun.

I like the first day of school for a different reason, though. You see, I have a sort of power. When I look at people, I can…sense a sort of aura around them. A colored outline based on how long that person has to live. Most everyone I meet around my age is surrounded by a solid green hue, which means they have plenty of time left.

A fair amount of them have a yellow-orangish tinge to their auras, which tends to mean a car crash or some other tragedy. Anything that takes people “before their time” as they say.

The real fun is when the auras venture into the red end of the spectrum, though. Every now and again I’ll see someone who’s basically a walking stoplight. Those are the ones who get murdered or kill themselves. It’s such a rush to see them and know their time is numbered.

With that in mind, I always get to class very early so I can scout out my classmates’ fates. The first kid who walked in was basically radiating red. I chuckled to myself. Too damn bad, bro. But as people kept walking in, they all had the same intense glow. I finally caught a glimpse of my rose-tinted reflection in the window, but I was too stunned to move. Our professor stepped in and locked the door, his aura a sickening shade of green.

Enjoy the story!

大家都喜歡開學第一天,對吧?新年度、新班級、新朋友。
沉鬱的現實還沒有現身毀滅所有樂趣,這一天總是充滿希望又潛力無窮。

但是,我之所以喜歡開學第一天,有個與眾不同的理由。

這麼說吧,我有某種力量。
當我盯著一個人看的時候,我可以……感覺到他們身邊有某種光暈,
根據這個人壽命還有多長,他的輪廓會有不同顏色的光芒。

和我同年齡的每個人幾乎都環繞著深深的綠色,代表來日方長。
也有一些人的光輝是橘黃色調,
通常代表車禍或某些會奪走性命的人生悲劇,
就像一般常說的「英年早逝」一類的。

不過,真正精采的是光暈進入光譜的紅色頂端的時候。
偶爾我會瞄到一些看起來就像是一支人型紅燈的傢伙──
這種人要嘛自殺,要嘛就是遭人謀殺。
看見這種人、知道他們所剩時日不多,實在很刺激。

因為「看得見」,所以我總是很早到教室,以便窺見新同學們的命運。

第一個走進來的人基本上是紅光四射,
我暗笑在心裡,簡直糟透了啊,兄弟。

但接下來的每個人走進來,都帶著一樣的紅光……

我終於不經意在窗戶的反射裡看到染成玫瑰色的自己,驚訝得不能動彈。

教授走進來,鎖上了門。

他的光是令人作嘔的綠色。

(譯後感:哎呀呀小屁孩死定了XD)
