Inside was the figure of a peacefully sleeping doll with long eyelashes and rose-colored cheeks.
Mr. Sugawara: "What a good-looking doll."
Mr. Kato: "I saw it a long time ago. It's cute, isn't it."
Mr. Sugawara: "Long ago the doll was displayed during the annual Doll Festival, Mr. Kato."
Mr. Kato: "Yes, it was."
Mr. Kato gently
took the doll in his hands and hugged it.
He was startled when the doll cried out, "mama."
