A Hedgehog’s Letter

This is my first short story...

A Hedgehog’s Letter


One Sunday morning, a hedgehog went for walking. In the west of a forest, are there a lot of apple trees. It is the hedgehog's favorite place. When the hedgehog came close to the oldest tree in the forest, he noticed that something was different than usual. The moment he is about to ask "What's going on?" voices come from behind him.


"Is it true that the honeybees are leaving our forest?" a young apple…

Girls Day in Japan

How have you been?

It looks like a person, isn't it?

When I saw "her" for the first time, I somehow felt like "she" was my friend!

Actually, "she" is an old telephone!

I don't know how old it is, but I think this kind of thelephone was used about 100 years ago. Can you see a handlebar which is on the right hand side of its face? When you made a phone… Continue
