11-year-old Mikan-chan has a “stone” in the bladder. It could force her to go into the restroom over and over, sometimes to bleed a little. Veterinarian Dr. O recommends an operation to remove the stone, yet he adds that there is no guarantee to avoid the disease forever …
Mei-Shun caught a cold. A slight fever, stomachaches, a sore throat and running nose, sleepiness … might be among the worst happenings in preparation for a stage performance. She only hopes that accumulated training so far works well.
Master Mei-Shu gave Mei-Shun a kimono, beautifully purple-colored. It is just in size of the latter, looks a bit too long for you, Master … it might be the one her eldest sister, Mei-Shu I, wore in her days.
Mei-Shun consulted Master Mei-Shu for the knee ache. As a result, the part to put both knees on the ground has been removed — it is also hard for dance experts. Who would like bruises caused by unnatural poses?
Mei-Shun has a slight pain in her right knee. While doing lighter exercise yesterday, she found out several poses in Echigo-Shishi which might cause the ache.
