Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story “Haaiiia!” Kimi threw a classmate named Yuuki across the room, bouncing him onto an old pillow. Yuuki got up and the two bowed to each other. It was the end of her last class; Kimiko was ready to go out and face the world. She wanted to stay in school but Rat College was full for the next year. Kimi would have to get a job until then. Now, Okinawa doesn't have many good jobs for a young female rat. Little Kimiko rat had to walk from Tairagawa to Hedo to check up on a cheese packing job. Then she hoofed it all the way down to Naha Port. She had heard they needed a Ship Rat for a trip to Japan. No good; the Captain wanted a male rat. She tried a find a job at Tengan, but the factory there had all the rats it needed. White Beach needed a water rat, but Kimiko couldn't swim. All that traveling took a long time for Kimi since she couldn't drive a car and wasn't allowed on busses. “I just can't find a good job,” Kimiko sobbed to her mother, “nobody wants me.” Her mother patted her on the back and asked, “Did you ever think of trying right here in Tairagawa? Why not your home town?” Kimi hadn't even thought of it. She just assumed she would have to work far away. She had always admired the policemen in their nice blue uniforms, but they never seemed to hire rats. “Well, I might as well try.” Kimi decided, walking boldly into the town police station. Sgt Oishi sat at his desk writing a report about some criminals he wanted to catch. The trouble was that they lived in a house sitting by itself at the edge of town. If they saw a policeman, they ran away. He was wondering what to do when he heard someone say, “I need a job. Can I be a policeman?” The Sgt. Looked down and saw a cute little rat standing in front of his desk. So Kimiko became a policerat. She would hide and listen to crooks plan robberies, then report them to her boss. She was a good police rat. Tweet
