A cute story posted on March 12, 2015. :D
happy birthday, Arata!
Yuki: Good morning! Arata-san! Happy birthday!
Arata: Morning, Yuki. Thanks for the email you sent me yesterday... or rather today at midnight. ...It made me happy.
Yuki: Hehe! Well, I wanted to congratulate you first! Well, this isn't much of a present, but will you accept it?
Arata: An album? It's full of cat pictures.
Yuki: Arata-san, you're always cleaning the cat litter. So I thought it would be nice to have something to remember them by... but it's hard to take pictures of cats. They ended up running away and I couldn't take any pictures.
Arata: ... Thanks. Teehee, it's true. There's ones in here where you only got a picture of their tails.
Yuki: Besides, when I thought about it, I realized that with you here, the cats would come closer.
Arata: Then, do you want to take a picture of all of us together?
Yuki: I do, I do!! How about in the courtyard this evening!?
Arata: Yeah, then see you after school.
Yuki: Arata-saaan, over here, over here!
Kuya: Aratan, today is your birthday? Happy birthday!
Takato: Happy birthday.
Arata: This is a surprise. What's everyone doing?
Yuki: Sorry, while I was looking for someone to take the picture, everyone thought it sounded like fun and just came along....
Chiba: I heard Minase was going to summon the cats again.
Kuya: So you're going to take a picture with the cats, right? That sounds kind of fun!
Takato: Sorry, Minase. If we're going to be in your way, we could stop....
Arata: I don't mind. Then, let's all take a picture.
Yuki: Right! Since we're here, let's all be in the picture!
Takato: Then I'll take the picture.
Kuya: Next, we'll alternate and I'll take it!
Arata: Every cat, come on out! *whistle* ♪
Yuki: Alright, everyone's gathered!
Kuya: Hey, kitties! Today is Aratan's birthday. So you celebrate it too.
Yuki: Arata-san, today you're the lead, so get in the middle! Hey, hold up Wakasama.
Arata: Eh, ummm, if Wakasama's in the middle....
Kuya: Chiba-sempai, you hold one too. Look, this one is docile!
Chiba: Y, yeah.... ...... So cute.
Takato: Then, is everyone ready?
Yuki: Arata-san, it's a bit late, but this is a birthday present from me!
Arata: Oh, you didn't have to do that. For me, the picture is plently.
Yuki: But I want to give it to you! Here, open it.
Arata: Mm..., thanks. ...... It's a bath towel with a hood.
Yuki: And it's got bear ears! There were cat and rabbit ones, but these were the ones closest to Maro's ears. Please use it after your club activities.
Arata: I can't use this in the club.
Yuki: Huh! It's no good!? But it's so cute! A boy with a hood on!
Arata: Absolutely not. But, since I have it... I'll use it my room.
Yuki: Then, you're saying that I'm the only one who'll see when you use it?
Arata: You're the only one who comes to my room in the time after I take a bath....
Yuki: Hehe, maybe I'll buy a matching one ♪
