Not means you, lovely horsey girl, but the 13th of Princess Cymby. Mei-Shun likes this number because of her birthday perhaps. And it seems every 13 years make something important in her life. She wishes it to be better and better, yet knows well that it is she who makes it with kind help from good family and friends. So please do not hurry, Your Highness, just go ahead as you like.
Shin and Mei-Shun share their 24th wedding anniversary today. Looking forward to adding silver on the top of it next year maybe, the husband gave a cool necklace to the wife as his first gift. And this “rouge pink” bouquet followed around tea time. Oh, she always does not know how to express her gratitude, love and bewildering toward such … generosity? Could you please tell mom the best word, Mikan-chan?
Great to see you again, Your Highness. Your advent is to celebrate Christmas with Shin and Mei-Shun, isn’t it? Since divided your tangled roots, she thought you would take a few more years to bloom. You kindly encouraged her to recover from the disease she had approx. 4 years before. Health and prosperity is sincerely wished for yourself of course, and may our days be merry and bright.
One week has passed since artificial, removable Ame-chan arrived in Mei-Shun’s mouth. She works quite well, helps her owner masticate anything: sticky foods like baguettes (baked yesterday) and rice cakes are tasty for the latter, yet dangerous enough to require heavy chewing. Only one fault of the former is that foods easily come into a narrow space between a soft denture base and natural molars.
Thank you so much for your invitation, Kaori-san. It is the first time for Mei-Shun to visit Mr. and Mrs. M’s home in Tokyo, with 石神井公園 Park taking just a few minutes to walk. Shin often enjoyed driving to there with his wife on weekends when they lived in 杉並 Ward. Rowing a boat on the pond, 三宝寺池 beyond a roadway has never been their goal.
Mei-Shun resumed to walk to the nearest shrine, drew two 吉=kichi, lucky omikuji lots consecutively. They mean quite similar as saying; those who see the 45th lot have everything in full shape, while those who do the 49th have everything satisfied like 仲秋の名月 with no clouds. Both advises her to stay humble, and it would go better with Gods’ protection.
Mei-Shun’s smaller molar, younger Ame-chan on right upper jaw made a narrow escape. Although infected and cracked, inner nerves were partly kept healthy. Well, thank you so much, late elder Ame-chan. You saved your twin sister by sacrificing yourself, informing this careless owner on troubles in another half of you by the first, slight pain just like the one she felt in you last year.
