Runo and Natalie



Division 1 Allegro (like a great river)



In a suburb distant from Paris, there is a family, that has been living for twenty years peacefully by the side of a lake surrounded by deep woods. There lives a brother and sister. Renault is twenty years old and Natalie is seventeen. Renault is an elder brother, but Natalie is more mature than Renault She treated him as a younger brother at all times. They seem completely in accord physically and neighbours looked at them almost as lovers. Her glamorous body attracted and dazzled Renault.

One fair day they tried to row a boat on the lake. Renault made a false move in error that threw Nathalie out of the boat. She screamed for his help desperately, because she could not swim. Renault tried desperately and hard to pull her back into the boat. When Renault hugged Natalie to his arms he was so fascinated and dazzled by her attractive body that it made him forget that they were brother and sister. Some sweet scent of her wet hair stimulated him when he looked down on the face of Natalie .He retained this memory his whole life. This was his first awareness of Natalie as a female. He was puzzled with his senses, but a shallow rouge flush warmed his heart Three months passed since this accident and it was a wintry October. Their father received a letter from his brother living at Rothenburg in Frankfurt, where he was making and selling ice-wine. He wrote their father to send someone bring back some fresh ice-wine. Renault thought he would like to do this with Natalie. He succeeded to inducing his father to let him make the journey with Natalie.

After they finished at junior school, they studied by themselves were educated by Renault's parents. They were brought up strictly. His father was born and brought up in an ancient business family in France. He tried to take over his own father's business. He went to the University of Paris to study business faculty and met Renault's mother who was also enrolled in the University. Before long they fell in love and swore to live together. Unexpectedly, Renault's grandfather disapproved of their plans to marry they no choice but to run away from home. It was twenty years ago that Renault's parents started to live together 300 miles from Paris.

They did not live in any luxury and brought up their children to love a simple life. . Renault and Natalie were much loved by their parents and they realized this. This Family could never anticipate what an incredible incident would happen in the future and what dramatic changes the trip to Rothenburg would cause for both youngsters. Rothenburg was divided in the New Town and the Old Town. . An old fortress town and very famous for its ancient surrounding wall over 3 miles in length. . There were marvellous spy holes and lookout places every 200yards through them visitors could have an illusion watching for invaders that transcended hundreds of years. Renault's uncle was living here to make and sell an ice-wine to sightseers. His shop was in the centre of the town. As they entered into the shop, their uncle recognized them and hugged Renault. A gentleman who was talking with uncle smiled at this scene and waited quietly.

This gentleman was Japanese and came far from Frankfurt to buy ice-wine. Renault and Natalie were just on the way back to Frankfurt notwithstanding the fact that their uncle and his wife had invited them to lunch. Renault planned take Natalie somewhere special in Frankfurt. In front of the bank of the flowing river Maine, there is a long five-storied old ranged building Renault told Natalie that this was the Jewish Museum. Natalie could not understand why Renault had brought her to such a place. They took a lift and went up to the third floor. In front of the lift door, there was copper plate on the wall inscribed with numerous names. When they were looking at the copper plate, someone talked to them from behind. It was the Japanese gentleman they had met earlier in Rothenburg.

Renault and Natalie were surprised to encounter him in such a place. They did not ever believe that this person would ever have a very special significance for them. Renault pointed out a name on the plate to Natalie The Japanese man was surprised to see that name. He invited them to go to the fifth floor, a special place where no guests were allowed. Renault had heard of this place and decided to follow him. There was a kind of laboratory there and many staff worked and studied there. The main job of that laboratory was to trace the people whose names were carved name on the copper plate. They were the victims of the Nazi genocide and some still alive. He went into the room and talked to a friendly lady who was pleased to see him and hugged him She was Jewish and very pleased to see Renault and Natalie when she heard from that Japanese that a certain name of that plate had something to do with them. She explained she hand a deep and long term friendship with this Japanese since the Second World War. He had been associated with this Laboratory for a long time. Renault had a feeling of intimacy on hearing this. . However Natalie was puzzled as to what was going on.

They returned home to France and Renault felt that Natalie had acquired a strange attitude towards her mother. Renault felt depressed that Natalie rejected mother. Natalie found an album in her mother's room and saw the same name as one on the copper plate in Jewish Museum. She now believed her mother was a Jew. She must be depressed because she believed she herself was a kind of Jew. Renault made up his mind to talk with his parents. He explained to them that he had taken Natalie to a Jewish Museum in Frankfurt Natalie was shocked to realise that her mother was a Jew. The parents of Renault's mother were born in Paris. Her grandfather's background was in wine manufacturing in Frankfurt and her grandmother's background was in diamond processing in Amsterdam. Renault's maternal great grandfather came to Paris to open a wine business and met his wife (Renault's maternal grandmother) in Paris They married then Renault and Natalie's great grandmother was born.

The grandmother of Renault and Natalie was in Meruk monastery in the suburbs of Vienna in Austria. They married in Paris and moved to Frankfurt to open a diamond business there. Their child was just eight years when they moved to Frankfurt. One year later Hitler and the Nazis invaded Austria and the Second World War broke out. As most of Diamond business was run by Jews, they were believed to be Jewish. They were taken into the Ghetto together with other Jews from Frankfurt. The eight-year-old girl seemed to have the same destiny as her parents but they asked a Japanese diplomat to take her away to his Amsterdam home. The names of that copper plate were the great grandfather and grandmother of Renault and Natalie. The eight years girl was a grandmother in Meruk Monastery. She was a mother of their mother. After the Allied Forces liberated Paris, the Meruk Grandmother moved back to Paris again where she had been born. She was fourteen years old then.

She met her husband in Paris ten years later. Her husband was in wine business with his brother and came to Paris. They married and mother of Renault and Natalie was born. Grandfather led a dissipated life and broke with his brother. He moved to Geneva with his wife and founded a private bank and succeeded in developing it into a top rank bank. When they moved to Geneva, a daughter, mother of Renault and Natalie did not go with them but remained in Paris .She had e just came back from Kansas City where she had graduated from high school. She entered the University of Paris and met the father of Renault and Natalie. They fell in love and ran away. Meruk's grandmother thought first that the reason why this marriage was disapproved of was her husband's indulgence, but she knew that the real reason was because her family considered her a Jew. She was deeply disturbed and she shut her up in Meruk Monastery. After she went to the Monastery, her husband quitted indulgence and worked honestly in Vienna.

Renault looked into Natalie's room the next day when Renault talked with his parents about Natalie and she had left. There was a letter addressed to Renault on her desk. He told his parents that Natalie had left. They knew already Natalie had left quietly early in the morning. They did not dare to stop her up for fear they would make her more determined. They all knew where she would go. Natalie thought over night and had decided what to do. She had gone to the Jewish Museum in Frankfurt in order to clear something stale inside her mind. It was already dark when Natalie reached the Museum. The front door was closed. She was turned away, then there was a voice from behind her; it was the Japanese man. He was astonished to see Natalie at such a late hour.

He took her inside the building and asked why she was here. She hesitated but then told him everything. A Jewish lady in the Laboratory joined to listen to Natalie. She found that one of the names on that copper plate was also in the album of mother. Mother had something to do with that name. The Japanese gentleman understood everything. . The Jewish lady was surprised to hear that Natalie's mother was the daughter of the couple named on the plate. Natalie was convinced in her own mind that her mother was Jewish. The lady asked her if she hated Jews. She hid her face and did not reply. The Japanese man told her the full details of the story. Natalie cried very much. She now realised her mother was a genuine woman. Natalie stayed in the home of the Jewish lady.

Natalie realised that the Menorah in the museum was the same one she had seen in her mother's album. A Menorah is a seven-holder candlestick used in a synagogue. Natalie discovered the symbol on the base of the Menorah. The Japanese gentleman explained that this was a "Kamon" an emblem of the Family. They knew that the mother of Natalie was descended from Japanese hero, a ruler of Japan over four hundred years ago. They were surprised to learn that a missionary from Portugal went to Japan to promulgate Christianity and fell in love with a daughter of that ruler. That ruler understood him very well and gave him every encouragement. When the daughter gave a birth, this hero gave a letter of commendation with Kamon to the missionary and his daughter. After one year they left Japan for Portugal.

The hero was later assassinated by one of his followers. They learnt this in Portugal. The missionary wrote the hero's history and showed how great a man he was. This was the most important historical fact recognized in Japan. Natalie was unable to understand why such strangers knew about so much about her mother's family history. The Japanese gentleman and the Jewish lady wish to meet Natalie's mother. She could not decide whether this would be a good thing or not and tried to call and talk to Renault.

The Japanese also called Renault and told him the story. Renault talked with his parents and got permission to go to Frankfurt. The unbelievable story was that during the Second World War the Japanese man's father was a high-ranking diplomat in Frankfurt. He was also an amateur historian. He studied the life of the hero and at that time was begged by her parents to take an eight-year-old girl to safety in Amsterdam. He also saved a Jewish lady's family.

The Japanese gentleman handed over a worn-out book to the people there. This was the book written by the missionary when he went to Japan four hundred years ago. His father read this book and he also studied after that. This book was written in Portuguese Renault could read Portuguese to a limited extent because he learned it from his mother.

The book said that the hero was a great Samurai and a daughter of the hero had married the writer of the book and had three children in Portugal. Renault knew that the key-persons that would be able to solve the riddle about this story were a Meruk grandmother and this Japanese gentleman. She did not know for sure that she was a blood relative to the Japanese hero. They forwarded to Meruk. Grandmother was pleased to meet a Japanese gentleman again. Renault did not know they knew each other. She went to Japan, knowing that the Japanese diplomat who taken her from Frankfurt to Amsterdam was dead. She attended his funeral and met his son, the Japanese gentleman, at that time.

His story about the came like a bolt out of the blue to her. "We have only to go to Amsterdam to trace the history of my family.," she said. "They have been in the diamond business for hundreds years and they have passed precious items from generation to generation. I think the Menorah will be there " she said. Grandmother made up her mind to go to and see her daughter in France and then to Amsterdam. Renault and Natalie smiled inwardly at her excitement.

Renault drove on the freeway with Natalie and grandmother to their home. When they arrived mother was waiting for and ran towards grandmother with a many tears. The two women hugged each other. . It was nearly twenty years since they had last met. Renault thought that the desires of ordinary people often had tragic consequences. When Renault looked at Natalie he felt something unexpected would happen in the future and he was scared. A week had passed since grandmother arrived. She announced that it was the time to go to Amsterdam. Father stayed home and the rest started out to trace their family's history. They were met by the Japanese gentleman and a Jewish lady at Schiphol Airport. A cousin of grandmother's also came to the airport to welcome them. They looked out for typical Netherlands sights. The house of a cousin looked like a castle from hundreds of years ago.

They assembled in the library and listened to the cousin. "The first-born son of this family have a responsibility to go to Kyoto in Japan and Siian in China. We have relatives in the Xiu family in China and in the Hata family in Japan. This custom has been continuing until now. The third generation of our family went over to Japan through China in 1565 in order to promulgate Christianity and first met the ruler of Japan in 1569. The Hata family was one of very old people from overseas. It was long ago that they came to Japan with Essenes religion in seventh century. It was called "Keikyou" in Japan and Hata family were already promulgating this religion already at that time. The Hata family is descended from the Sing Emperor in China the first unified empire. Xiu Family worked for the empire. Third generation of our family knew about it and he wanted to go to Chou-An in China and to Kyoto in Japan to propagate the Essenes, which was the original religion of the Jews, and Jesus learned this religion.

Jesus came to know that the Judaism at that time was mostly Pharisees-sector. That religion was based on the worship of idols, which was wrong. That was the reason Jesus was crucified. He told people to come back original Judaism and that was just Jesus assertion. The third generation of family was welcomed by the ruler who had a unique outlook in Japan and allowed to build church and seminar in Kyoto. However when he started to promote the religion, the ruler was assassinated in Kyoto. He reluctantly came back to the country with a daughter of the ruler. The Menorah he brought back to country with "Kamon" was the one in displayed in the Jewish museum. . There is the same Menorah in the Xiu family and Hata families to day. The cousin was the nineteenth generation of the family and this house was built in its twelfth generation; 179 years ago. A genealogical chart from the eleventh generation and then from twelfth to nineteenth generations was held up. There were portraits displayed in the conference room the cousin decided to open a genealogical chart never previously opened. There was a genealogical chart and a letter handed over his daughter. In the letter it was written that the hero wanted to go abroad Asian countries as well as European countries. At the foot of the letter, there was the hero's signature. This Kamon (flower signature) proved that the hero wrote the letter ".

Natalie located the original book written by the third generation called "Japone Historical". He wrote this book to earn his place in history. In Japanese history, he was under-valued by the academics because his mentality was so different from that of normal Japanese. There was a portrait of the hero in the history book. He looked like an emotional man. But there was also the portrait in the book the third generation wrote. In that he appeared intrepid and brave. The book mentioned that he had a strong sense of justice and fairness, and that he was proud. He treated everyone equally. When mother of Renault finished reading the book, everyone thought he was a great man and his influence, even if it lasted ten years, could solve many modern problems. Particularly there is the deep dark shadow of the African black people enslaved for the past five hundred years. The hero on this book should be welcomed to this and the next century. Renault was very impressed to know that he had the same blood as this man. "I want to go to Japan," he said promptly. "I also want to go to Japan " Natalie cried. Mother and grandmother agreed without any comment. Renault and Natalie would live in the Japanese gentleman's house. Thus was the new journey for two youngsters in Japan.



Division 2 Adagio (Admonition in the peace of mind)



Renault and Natalie enrolled in the University in Tokyo on the recommendation the Japanese gentleman, whose nickname was "Sensei" (teacher). He was a professor of world history at the highest-ranking private University. Renault majored in Japanese history at the same University for two years and entered a master's course in economics and computers two years later. . Natalie studied a course in international relations at another famous private university located in Yotuya.

Sensei and Renault often discussed over two years the forefather of the hero who lived four hundred years ago. Sensei went to Frankfurt in summer vacation; Renault and Natalie were planning to go to Kyoto by new rail line. They were surprised at the modern railway station of Kyoto. When they reached at Kyoto they walked around the typical Kyoto sites. They went to the Gion-Machi that was called from originally Zionism in Israel. Kyoto was called Heian-Kyo for the past twelve hundred years that was also originally from Jerusalem in Israel. Heian means peace. "Kyo" means capital. "Tokyo" means "the east capital". "Jeru" means peace in Hebrew. "Salem" means "capita" in Hebrew. Gion-Matsuri was the famous festival in Japan in the middle of July. The same day that Gion-Matsuri is held, the Ark of Noah arrived at the Mount Ararat as written in the Bible. Renault wanted to go to Gion and then they had a trouble with Japanese thugs. The thugs were very impressed with Natalie and made a play for her. Renault lost his self-control, and he crushed three yobs.

A group of Maiko, typical traditional dancers, saw what had happened and a policeman came to the site, the dancers defended Renault. It was his hidden character Natalie knew about. They thought there was a part of light and a part of shadow in every splendid place. They checked out the Hotel and went to Uzumasa where the Hata family lived. There lived a niece of the Meruk grandmother married to a Japanese man. They were going to stay in the house of Hata family. The religion of Hata family was Essenes for over the last twelve hundreds years. When the third generation came to Kyoto to proselytise in the day of the hero, He learned the Essenes doctrines from the Hata family. He confessed the true story of the Essenes to the hero, he was very impressed with the honesty of the third generation. He pointed out the corrupted Japanese monks and insulted them. That was the true reason why the hero wiped out all the monks in Mount Hiei. His was hostile not to religion but to corrupt monks. He therefore ordered Hata family to take care of the third generation and gave his daughter to the third generation in a permanent marriage relationship to Hata family. They have been continuing the relation between Hata and Xui families. The hero pointed out the foolishness on the conflict between the different races, nations, and religions. In every instance, the victims would be a vulnerable group of people.

On the other hand the principle of the religion was Christianity (as interpreted by the Jesuits), when the third generation came to Japan. Jesuits were regarded as imperialist spies, acting on behalf of a country that intended to invade Japan. The third generation hated this and confessed the fact to the hero. He recognized this and took him into his confidence. The third generation said in his book that he has never seen such a great man. The role of the Essenes was the bridge between Judaism and Christianity and put great emphasis on the role of the Family. Renault was impressed with the far sightedness and ability to predict the future of the hero. He also was interested in the ancient hero Shoutoku-Taisi that he gave a lot of favour to Hata family even though Hata family came from overseas. Nobody had ever anticipated that it would be the destiny of Renault to follow the paths of these two heroes.

Renault and Natalie were on the way to Nara by car. He wanted to see Guze-Kannon statue in the dreaming room at Horyu-Temple. Of this statue, it was reported that Shoutoku-Taisi had carved it by himself. It was a source of wonder that this statue had been covered in white cloth for the past thousand years. At the beginning of Meiji, Tensin Okakura and Fenoroza unveiled this statue and displayed it periodically in spring and autumn. Renault looked at the statue for more than one hour. When Natalie talked to Renault, he was not aware anything around him and started to tremble. Natalie believed he had caught a fever and went to buy some medicine. She explained Renault's symptoms in the souvenir shop. The woman in the shop told her it happened quite often these days. This was due to great resentment of the Shoutoku-Taisi family. That statue caused in any sensitive person a high fever. Renault did not know about this.

They were on the way back and when they stopped at the crossroads to Nara and Sakurai, his trembling and the sense of chill stopped. Renault, on an intuition, changed direction to Sakurai. They lost their way but continued on the road. He knew ahead were Ohmiya-Shrine and Isonkami-Shrine this way and kept driving. When they crossed the gate of Ohmiya-Shrine, his trembling stopped. They left the car and walked towards Haiden that was the place to pray. When they stopped on the courtyard before Haiden, a woman in her fifties spoke to them. She pointed to the base of big cedar where there was a white snake. This tree was named God tree of the snake. The woman said that it was very rare case to see the snake, especially when it was coiled up. . It happened no more than once every twenty or thirty years. This incident indicated that something good would be happening in the near future. They went to Isonokami-Shrine then and saw the strange sword called "seven branches sword" that resembled a Menorah.

His fever continued for seven days after return from Nara. He was dreaming about the hero. The hero appeared quite often in his dreams and said to Renault. "I punished many bad people who were abusing their power and I tried to rebuild a country. However I was betrayed by my own people and had to give up my task. Those people s were very cruel and heartless. I wanted you to complete my unfinished dream" Renault was confident then that he had some role in Japan and that this role had drawn him to Japan.

When Renault and Natalie went out to see the Gion-Masturi, they met a strange old man. He invited them to his home. They were cautious at first but they were very interested in this old man. They followed him and got into his car in the parking area in Yasaka-Shrine. It took one hour to reach his big house. They met there the woman who had explained at the Ohmiya-Shrine about the white snake. She was a daughter of this old man. This old man had a wonderful power to contact an ancestor. He called out to the hero to be there. His voice changed completely and said. "This is Kazusa. I am a forefather of both of you. Renault! You have a special assignment to rebuild the world. The world is a bad place for human beings. Racism and privilege are at their the worst. You are descended from a mixture of the races and so you are the best man to change this bad world" The hero had appeared and given him a direct assignment. Renault and Natalie cried in front of the old man.

They went back to Tokyo three weeks later. Renault had something to do after this. Sensei had already returned from Frankfurt and he asked about the journey in Kyoto and Nara. They told everything happened and Renault confessed that he would be studying world history after finishing his Master's course. He wanted to teach the true history which was never written in a book. Renault knew that this was to challenge the present world rulers. . "This is something like revolution and do you understand what danger you will be in?" Sensei said, but Renault understood very well. " I am planning to form the group that is to study true world history. This association would be called Kazusa Association".

The alumni meeting was held on the August 25. Around one hundred members joined the meeting and talked joyfully together. After the meeting a special team five members gathered and Renault told them what he would have to do after this. They all have been working for big organizations but they promised to give up their jobs and co-operate with him. In the autumn there was an annual school festival, Renault spoke at it and explained the hero's achievement and it created a sensation. Many foreign students attended this famous festival and they were very impressed with the hero because most of them were coloured people. " Were the hero alive, could he have avoided all incidents of awful racism?" One of the black students asked Renault. "He could have definitely avoided the European imperialist countries making African black people slaves". Renault said and showed big globe that was made for the hero's activities. He said he would write the book "Kazusanosuke" in the near future. This would apply the hypothesis if the hero had survived more ten years what the world could have changed completely. . Foreign students in particular were impressed when news of Renault's views spread. This was the first step in demonstrating the hero's unfinished work.



Division 3 Vivace (The peak of two melodies)



Natalie graduated top in her class at the University. She would not undertake a Master's course but joined the University of Sensei and Renault as secretary to the professor of English literature. Renault finished his Masters course and got into the world history laboratory with Sensei. He was an assistant first and the University funded him as an associate in the "Kazusa Association " The University was founded one hundred fifty years ago with its motto of "The spirit of Independence and Pride" The Japanese education system has not yet been reformed and the Government was still keeping a close eye on what went on in colleges. . There was no spirit of independence and pride in state education particularly at the National University. Renault gave a lecture on European medieval history. This was the first lecture to the lower grade students and they were mostly same age as 25-year-old Renault. He wished to co-study with them. There were very few students in the big hall and he was shocked. However he changed his plan and said to the students. "This is not a lecture but discussion on how to change the world. I am not a teacher and you are not students. We must all work together to achieve the ideal world. Therefore there will no assessment on this lecture. Those of you who have no ideals should leave right now and those with ideals are most welcome to stay".

The reputation of his lectures spread rapidly not in this University but also to other Universities. After six months there the big hall was full of students. . The topic of the lecture was about religious wars that had occurred in the European countries, particularly crusaders had been attacking different religion for five hundreds years. There was no religious war in Japan in the shift from the medieval World to modern World. Meiji-Ishin was a rare revolution without a religious war. . That was the reason why among developed Asian countries Japan could catch up to European and American modernized countries. This in turn was due to the achievement of the hero. He eliminated the religious influence completely and after that there was no religious influence in politics at all. There would be no tragedies in the twentieth century if the hero had lived more ten years than the historical fact.

Renault started, all of a sudden, to select students by interview rather than by a test. He was looking for those who had a strong capacity for self-actualisation. . They should have strong resolution and be brave enough to solve any problem and not to transfer responsibility to others.

In the autumn of this year, the Kazusa Association made a training trip to Kyoto and Nara. There was a large group on this trip and Sensei and Natalie also attended. The Hata family took care of them because they had a big house for their employees. The Hata family was a big Japanese Kimono manufacturer in Kyoto. There was a lot of accommodation and all the members could stay. Renault called an old man to visit his house again. However he proposed that they should meet at Tennousha in Ohmiya-Shrine. Sensei went with Renault and he gave thanks for meeting Renault two years ago. An old man clapped his hands before the Tennousha and that was it. "There is no necessity for you to be advised" said an old man. "You have got to do anything you consider it good, the hero is always watching you".

On the way back to Kyoto, Sensei was impressed with the great assignment given to Renault. Renault had a strange dream at night. The hero appeared and said, "The class system in society produces the privileged class the privileged class is the root of the evil. Hereditary system is also one of the privileged classes. As long as the privileged classes remain, human beings will be destroyed. . I wish you to destroy the privileged class. First step, you have to have a thousand soldiers you must begin with twenty-five essential members." Renault replied," I would choose fighting soldiers if I could gather them and exterminate the whole privileged class as you did" "Are you ready to die?" asked the hero. "Why not?" replied Renault." I will assist you as long as I can".

Then he woke up and resolved to act soon. Renault talked about the conversation with the hero in dream to the members. One of the members told that there was a sensational book called "The Truth of the History" As Renault thought he would write a book about the hero, he would go out to buy that book for reference. When he bought the book and read it he was specially impressed that the consciousness of the superiority to the White race caused two world wars. Further black African slavery still spoilt the reputation of America. Renault started to write the book "Kazusanosuke" for the purpose of educating the black officers in Tachikawa Camp in US air base. He had many friends there from his time at university. . He visited the Camp and talked them enthusiastically about his view that political and economic nationalism had its roots in religious differences. The root of the cause was hidden under racism. Unless the consciousness of their superiority disappears racism would not disappear. He handed over the book he wrote to the officers. Their response was weak, because they had a feeling of inferiority to the white man for hundreds of years.

It was Christmas Season when the officers he had spoken to two months previously invited Renault to the Christmas Party. They said that Renault should bring all his colleagues to the Party. When they reached the Camp, a special guest came to the Party. He was a former heavyweight Champion and it was only he, apart from the minister Martin Luther King, who directly revolted the white society evaded to the conscription in the Vietnam War. He was deprived of the champion's belt. He got on the platform and gave a speech. "I read the book Renault wrote and am very impressed with his ideals. I would like to be the member of "Kazusa Association" but I must say to all people here that you must not use the power of violence. I would try to win a boxing fight but not to kill my opponent. I always thought I would try to hurt him as little as I can "He took shake hands with Renault and hugged him. A thousand members were at last recruited including that legendary champion, US army officers, Japanese army officers, famous actor and actress and the teacher of the school and so on. Renault changed the name of "Kazusa association" to "Global Nation Club Kazusa (GNK)". There were two departments in GNK. Those were Army Department and School Department. The army department would cope with those who were not capable of discussion. The school department would talk amicably. The champion agreed with this idea and he would be the chief of the army department. There were many heroes and heroines among its members and the name of GNK spread world-wide. The main action of the GNK was a campaign for enlightenment by the School Department and Army Department had strong role.

There was a meeting of the School Department in the Laboratory room in the University. It was after a long time since the twenty-five members had got together and they enjoyed chatting. Natalie liked to quietly devote herself to Renault. A girl student, one of the first members approached Renault and said that she had something to talk with Renault about.
They went into his room to talk. He opened the door, and three masked men were in his room. . "Who are you?" said Renault. They pushed him down to escape. She screamed and jumped into Renault's chest. The people were surprised and gathered around them. They saw Renault and a girl huddled together and Natalie also there. Natalie felt dizzy when she saw the scene. Renault tried to talk to Natalie but Natalie went out of the room soon. Sensei and Renault went back to the house, which was in darkness. Renault knew her character and anticipated to some extent. Renault went into his room and switched on the light. There was a paper on the desk. " Dear Renault, I would go to America. Natalie "He fell down on his knees without any reason.



Division 4 Presto(Chorus among the Negatives)



One year later Renault learnt via a letter from his mother that Natalie was in Los Angeles. . Renault worked hard and gave many lectures for the School Department. The School Department had a range of activities to the peoples of the world including concerts, movies and publishing books which would further the purposes of GNK. GNK was neither a political organization nor religious organization. GNK 's purpose was just to educate the people of the world. It taught what the spirit, physical strength, opinion, ambition, ability, justice, faith, love were. The target of GNK was to exterminate racism and privilege in the world. Racism carved into the subconscious mind of white people. However it would be very hard to innovate the mind of the privileged class, particularly ruling class. There was a first general election in Japan at the twenty-first century and the result of the proportional representation was that over twenty millions people named GNK on the ballot slips. GNK was not a candidate, and so the votes were invalid. The traditional political parties had a very strange feeling when it was announced that over 80% of the population had completed a ballot paper. That was double the usual rate and they were afraid that something new would definitely be happening. The existing political parties could not more this fact even if the GNK did field candidates in the election. The Secretary-General of the LDP said that he would like to meet Renault. However Renault did not accept the invitation. GNK was very popular world-wide and that people of the traditional political class were very frustrated about the sudden rise of the GNK. There happened many things around the GNK. Renault was advised to be more careful.

Natalie was in Los Angels for one year and studied film acting. . She made a good actress under skilled producer. Renault did not know about her and nobody told about Natalie. Natalie had an exceptional opportunity because a famous producer and director cast her as the heroine of Anne Frank. He was a Jew and had dreamt about making a film of Anne Frank for forty years. . The new version of "Anne Frank" was very popular and Natalie made very famous. . Renault came to know about this. He was glad to know first but was then afraid for her. The situation around Natalie changed had dramatically and she felt happy under these circumstances. She was too young to perceive the forces that were threatening her. . She fell in love with young actor cast in the same movie and they lived together. The staff of the Army Department suspected this young man but just watching. They did not want to disturb Renault. Renault made world-wide trip for lecture. There was a bomb blast at his hotel. Renault did not quit lecture trip He went to Paris suddenly to see his parents with no staff of the Army Department. When mother saw Renault driving a car and approaching house she could not stop crying. He wanted to take a rest with his parents. They very pleased to take care of him because they never thought that they could meet Renault again. Mother asked Renault about Natalie He said he did not know anything about her. His mother knew he still loved her. Mother had a presentiment about her two lovely children but she could help them or live life for them. . Renault said to his parents he should go. They wanted to hold him and not let him go anywhere but they knew his destiny and they could not stop him. Renault tried to take a flight to San Francisco to give a lecture at the Stanford University where Gorbachov had given a lecture. However there was no flight to SF from Paris but only to LA. The face of Natalie crossed his mind for a moment and who could anticipate that his momentary feeling would change everything. Renault took the flight as far as LA. Nobody knew about change of route. As soon as he got LA, he rented a car and went to Natalie's Apartment. He rang the doorbell. As a young guy opened the door, Renault thought he had got the wrong flat. Just as he was leaving Natalie appeared in front of the door with bathrobe. Renault was shocked to see her and got dizzy. The face of Natalie turned pale when she saw Renault at the door. Renault recovered his wits and said calmly, "I stopped over LA because I am going to give a lecture at SF and I met our parents in France. They are getting on well. So I should go" Natalie could not say anything because she was upset. Renault was leaving for lift and Natalie ran to follow him to ask where he was going after San Francisco. He said in the lift half closing the door that he would change and not to go to SF but to Tehran to give a speech at the Revolutionary Plaza. He spoke to Natalie sadly. "I have always been dreaming to live and make ice-wine in Rothenburg with you" and the door closed. When Natalie came back to the room absent-mindedly, her boyfriend called someone and hung up the phone.

Natalie told him to leave and she called Sensei in Japan. A girl student picked up the phone and explained about the whole true story. "Miss Natalie I must say first you made misunderstanding at that time. Renault Sensei loves only you. He never contacted you because he took care of you. We knew that you have lived with a boyfriend but nobody told him of this" Natalie cried her heart out and called mother. Mother just said, "You have to accept everything that will happen from now on".

The Army Department knew the details of Renault's flight to Tehran and were waiting at the airport. Journalists also knew that Renault would give a lecture at the Revolutionary Plaza near the airport. Renault got on the platform at the plaza. A million people had gathered at the plaza to listen. He began to speak before the TV camera sending all over the world. After he had been speaking for about half an hour, a young guy rose at the platform and ran toward Renault with sharp bamboo spear. It was only five seconds that someone screamed to see Renault with bamboo spear in his stomach covered with a lot of blood. The Army Department held down the young guy and try to attend to Renault. He insisted on going with the speech and told nobody to touch him. Natalie saw the scene on TV and cried with madness. "I did kill him, I did kill him. Oh! My God!" The parent saw the TV and mother said to her husband. " You knew what would happen, didn't you?" He said, "Natalie is so sad" Renault strained his last voice and appealed to the World about the importance of one tiny life of human beings. He lost consciousness and saw a pin of light in the distance. . The hero had taught Renault that the mot important thing for human beings was to be brave and to smile. "Renault! You found the place to die. That is it. Do not hate the young guy "When the consciousness disappeared, Renault said smile, "So long. Natalie" Natalie heard the last words of Renault.

Natalie disappeared. The army department staff found her letter in the apartment. The letter said that the young guy betrayed her. He had informed someone that Renault would be going to Tehran. The army department staff had heard that someone like Natalie had walked along the Santa Monica Beach. However nobody found her. After Natalie disappeared, a woman's dress drifted ashore. Nobody knows if this was the dress that Natalie wore when she fell out of the boat and was hugged by Renault at the lake in front of the house seven years before.
