○第三十四帖 若菜・上
源氏は義兄・朱雀院の希望で末娘の女三ノ宮と結婚しました。なにもかも幼い宮に、源氏は紫の上の素晴らしさが今更のように良くわかりましたが、彼女の心は壊れていきます。女三ノ宮は六条院での蹴鞠の催しの折、愛猫が御簾から出た際に、以前から彼女を慕っていた柏木にその姿を垣間見られ、柏木の宮への想いは募っていくのでした。

・The 34 th Story - Wakana・Jou (the first part)
Genji married Onna-San-no-Miya, a youngest girl of his step-brother, Sujaku-In at his request. Comparing to her, who was young in every respect, Genji realized what a great woman Murasaki-no-Ue was. Onna-San-no-Miya sensed his disappointment and it gradually broke herh heart. On a Kemari match (football match in the Japanese old style) held at Rokujoin, Kashiwagi happened to see her when her cat popped out of a bamboo screen. He was always in love with her in fact, and she came to think of him since this occasion.
