I love to sit in a chair and look out the window and do nothing.

“Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.”

At the animal rescue centre a couple of years ago.
Mikoto’s friend, a volunteer at the animal rescue centre, sought his help to take some photos of the animals who were ready for adoption during the term break. And that was when Mikoto first met Kin who was a young cat then.
The centre has just managed to rescue the barely alive Kin from his owner after they received a tip off that the man has been abusing his cat. They were afraid that they might have to put Kin down as he suffered a hit on his head, some broken bones on his chest and fore limb. But Mikoto succeeded in convincing them to let him care for the kitten.
Since then, Mikoto visited Kin everyday and cared for him. Initially, Kin cowered in fear whenever Mikoto tried to approach him. But after some time, Kin started to accept his presence and finally even allowed Mikoto to hold him. Everyone in the centre was happy to see Kin’s steady recovery and trust in man again.
When Kin was finally out of danger, Mikoto took him home and the triplets adopted him and gave him the name “Kin [金]” because of his pale golden fur. And Kin is happy to find a home where he is loved and safe.
Mikado, woke up by Mikoto who has snuggled up beside him, asked “Bad dream?”
Mikoto: “En.” And they fell back into sleep.
Shortly, Mikado was awoken by a voice…
Sleepily, he opened his eyes and saw Mizuki standing by the bedside.
Mizuki: “Ni-chan, can I sleep with you?”
Mikado, smiled and reached out his hand towards Mizuki: “Come.”
Mizuki climbed into the bed, hugging Mikado, he fell back into sleep. Lying between the two sleeping brothers like they were used to when young, Mikado, feeling a bit squashed up, thought to himself: “Hmm…need to get a bigger bed…” and then felt into a slightly uncomfortable sleep.
This is Mikoto’s new image. He’s the second of the triplets. I originally intended him to be someone who is so into study and research that he is awkward with people.
He gave me a flat refusal saying he will not be a nondescript. He wants a life full of colours.
Then he went on to claim this new wig, discard the prim and proper attire and go for casual rugged style. In fact, he demanded a loose fit and very distressed jeans. He also told me he will be a successful architect. Meantime, he is determined to enjoy himself while doing his undergrad studies.
On Sunday, he got a tattoo on his arm. This morning, he informed me he plans to get another on his forearm… (0_0″)
Is it because he feels overlooked, given that the older is the heir apparent and the younger is sickly and needs constant attention?
The clock chimed 4. After stretching out his tired muscles, Mikoto reached out for his strawberry cupcake absentmindedly when Shun walked by and saw him…and the cupcake.
S: Mikoto-ni, give me a bite!
M: Ah! Oh! …….
Before Mikoto could response, Shun held onto his hand and bit on the cupcake.
S: It’s yummy! (Another bite…) Hmmm…(another bite)….
In no time, Shun finished the cupcake and smiling cheekily, he thanked Mikoto with a hug.
M:(thinking to self) Should have bought two cupcakes … (-_-;)
Ziki, my new boy, is different from the rest of the dollies in the family. His skin tone is rosy white (the 1st fair skin in the family) and he is using the new body from SWITCH, Attractive Body. In these photos, you can see more differences between the Attractive body and Humming Dolly HD 65 used by the rest of my 65cm boys. The models are Mikoto and of course, Ziki.
Ziki’s foot seems slightly broader. The current shoes are a bit too tight for Ziki….
Mikoto is very unwilling to pull up his shirt…
It’s easier to bend Ziki’s hand and get it to stay in position.
I quite like the new body…to the extent of contemplating changing one or two of the HD65 bodies…and naturally this is frowned upon by the man-in-the-house. Maybe later…(–_–)
