Txt: Chapter 4 [A Stroll]
TV: In the Kantou area the probability of rain is 50%.
Mozuku: 50%, huh? // Don't pretend it's an achievement to give such an evenly split prediction......
Mother: Sachi, // they expect it's going to rain later today, why don't you take Mozuku for a walk while it's still dry?
Sachi: Mozuku, let's go for a walk!
Box: A walk is like going on a little trip.
Box: It's a threadbare, tawdry turn of phrase, but // I like the wording.
Mother: Bring an umbrella just in case.
Sachi: We're off!
Box: Walks are the premonition of a short story.
Box: Well, in truth // going on a trip or going for a walk don't necessarily make a story.
Sachi: Wait, Mozuku. // I'm still putting on my shoes.
Box: But the most precious moment of a trip // isn't the time you are away or the time you come back. // It's probably the moment you set off because you "wish" to go on a trip?
Box: That's why I // go on an trip every day.
Sachi: Mozuku, you're so fast!
Mozuku: But, // we always walk the same route.
SFX: meow meow
SFX: meow meow // search search
Sachi: I hear a cat......
Sachi: !? // Over there!
Cat: meow meow
Sachi: It climbed up in the tree and can't get down!!
Sachi: Err, err!
SFX: confused confused
Sachi: What should I do?3 (29)
Sachi: Mozuku, climb! // Quick!
Mozuku: Don't be ridiculous!!
Sachi: Ah! // It's going to fall!!
Sachi: Mr. Cat! // Here!
Mozuku: You aren't trying to catch a wood chip......
Cat: Oh, that was close, you saved meow! // Thank meow very much!
Sachi: Mozuku, that's so cool! // You made a super catch!
Mozuku: By the way, // get off me!4 (30)
Cat: Eh? // Well, I'm in a good mood today...... // More importantly, I need to repay the favor......
Mozuku: Don't ride me......
Mozuku: Don't just lie on top of me!!
Cat: Are all of meow 8 nipples directly touching your back?
Mozuku: ...what are you trying to say?
Cat: I'm returning meow kindness!
Mozuku: You don't have to!!!T/N: I'm not sure what this conversation between Mozuku & that Cat is about... and I'm not sure if I want to know xD5 (31)
Sachi: Mozuku, // I'm glad you made a friend.
Mozuku: Are you a female......?
Cat: Meow am a cute girl with cat ears.
Mozuku: Cat ears? You're a cat, right!?
SFX: drip drip
Sachi: ! // It's raining!
Sachi: Mozuku, time to go home! // Don't want to catch a cold.
Mozuku: ............ // Seriously!
Box: I'm caught in the rain and some strange cat is lying on me. // Today is quite the unusual day.
Sachi: Oh? Mr. Cat is coming with us?
Sachi: He left.6 (32)
Mother: Sachi, didn't I tell you to bring an umbrella?
Sachi: Hm. // Ah? // Mozuku is barely wet!
Sachi: I see! // Mr. cat has shielded Mozuku from the rain!
Sachi: He repaid the favor.
Mozuku: That cat......
Mozuku: I forgot to ask her name.
Box: Going out for a walk is no guarantee for a big story. // But on days with a 50% chance of rain, sometimes you'll even have cats fall from the sky. // The most precious part of a trip // sometimes happens after you set off. // That's what I learned today.
Box: Tomorrow I will // go on another trip.
Sachi: Mozuku! // If it rains tomorrow too, // let's just stay inside.
