Today, I’m publishing another short story in the Kami No Sekai short story series! I got the idea for this particular story after watching a Cool Japan (NHK World) episode on bicycles.
In Japan, the “mamachari”, which is a word mashup of “mama” and “chari” which means “bike” in Japanese slang, is one of the most used and bought bicycles. They are extremely popular, and they are the favorites of moms with kids. Usually, they have a basket in the front and a kid seat on the back.

So I wondered about these bicycles and how they must REALLY want a young family to ride them around town. What would happen if they got a single person instead? And that’s how this story was born. I decided to even dive a little into manga and cosplay culture for this short story, and that was fun to include as well.
I hope you enjoy this sweet little romance!
FYI) All of my Kami No Sekai short stories are now in Kindle Unlimited.
This bike longs to be owned by a family with kids but is bought by a quiet, cosplaying, young woman instead.
How will Mamachari help Eriko to find true love?
On Kindle and Kindle Unlimited.
