    Hi there,
    I would like to answer to the same friend I usually talk with (it came back from long examination) and I wanted to know: what's the meaning of this part? It's the last part of the message but every translator gives me some different response.
    (Kusakabe is my name)
    By the way I would like to answer "did you read the fictions I gave you?"
    Thanks for your answers

    well... how about the short, informal version: (On my end, I don't have much time to write so don't worry about replying and all that. see correction below) I'll be very happy to read you though when you send me (an email). Anyway, thanks for reading me :)

    Did you talk about the length of the messages you've sent each other? He says: My message sometimes gets shorter (than yours), too. He's emphasising 'Mine does, too'. Others sentences are as shown in the Papillion's post.

    And 'Did you read the fictions I gave you?' is 差しあげたストーリーはもう読みましたか?Or, 'Did you read the fictions I sent you?' is 送ったストーリーはもう読みましたか? ストーリー?this is a tiny gap of word choice that we use 'story' more often than 'fiction'.
