Good Job

Standard

You have run so much kilometers in safe so far. Please kindly take our sincere gratitude. However, something weird often sounds from your engine these days. Your coatings on the roof, bonnet and rear bumper have begun to blur. Oh, how heartbreaking it is for Mei-Shun who took you over from her late father. She has to wait for another guy to replace you soon, handing you to Shin who has less time to drive.

White Shade

Standard

His coat must be a good sun-breaker, yet it does not work for Vanilla Arc. He has little endurance in summer, breathes hard soon after lessons start even in the evening. Mei-Shun feels his condition through a saddle, very sorry for forcing him such a labor — she would like to win a certificate within this month, reserved him as a partner to help her. Honey, shall we shower together next time?

My Target

Standard

Meow, they have come again. I can’t stand seeing them buzz on our balcony floor. However, mom would not like me to open net windows by front paws, shuts me out from it with heavy glasses. We have 立秋=risshu, the first of autumn 二十四節気 she told me this morning. That might be why they give no chorus in such a sultry weather — humid, over 30 degrees Celsius at 8 o’clock.

Sweetest Girl

Standard

Mikan-chan always knows how Mei-Shun feels. When the latter takes rest on a futon mat with a fever, the former immediately joins while relaxes at her best place, looking indifferent when her mom is in better condition. All the same occurs between her parents — when Shin and Mei-Shun are in a bad mood after quarrel, their fluffy daughter rushes toward them with her tail upheld, turns on her back purring.

Glittering Guest

Standard

Hi, how are you? He often knocked our window these days, perhaps bring some message from beloved ones. Mei-Shun’s father visits us in a red hornet, Shin’s uncles in dragonflies. Black swallowtail butterflies seem to be haunted by her grandmother. Mikan-chan, why you “bark” at him? You stopped when mom came to take a photo. Do you mean to call her asked by this new face? What a good girl!

 

Her Strategy

Standard

Tora-chan has several safe places to relax on, except for her outdoor bed beside mom-in-law’s living room. It might be one of them, a compressor unit of air-conditioner at next-door the Ys. She seems to choose the best place according to circumstances, not always follow mom-in-law who cannot but welcome her little friend anytime when she rushes into our front door.

Missing You

Standard

Eight years have passed since Mei-Shun’s beloved father started his longest journey. A bit busy in daytime, she made a phone call to her mother living alone in the evening. Yes, mom, it rained 涙雨 during his funeral, left us full of tears before seeing clear sunlight. Oh, look at that 十五夜 moon. She might kindly come up to soothe our mind in spite of rainy season.
