As I mentioned before, Zita wasn't the only recent newcomer. Just before Christmas, Duckie got a new playmate :) He had also been faceless until recently, when he and Zita visited battiegotriddim
This is Kouta. He's five. He likes noisy trucks, robots and sour candy, but not squeaky shoes, hospital smells and sweetened milk.
Kouta's absolute favourite thing to do is going on adventures. He liked getting lost in the jungle of their garden, where every colour in the world seemed to be. He liked sneaking into spaces between the furniture, where he always found small pieces of treasure. When he'd already explored his house and the garden up to the gate, he snuck into his father's study. The huge desk there was his favourite hiding place; it was where the sunlight came through the window at just the right angle that he didn't have to sit in complete darkness, and where he thought of more adventures he'd like to have.
Sometimes, he thought about what it was like to have someone to share adventures with. His father was the overprotective sort and he was born in a household that didn't really have much patience for children, so people around him never really seemed to understand him. He had Piggy, his dog, who patiently listened to his stories and sometimes came along with him, but it wasn't always easy trying to get a dog to cooperate.
When his father died, he came to live with Datu Alacrán, a family friend, and Datu's son Duckie. He doesn't really know why he has to live with them, only that he has to, and he's still getting used to having to talk much louder. He's slowly finding it easier to be around people when he's with Duckie though, so it isn't so bad :)
It was also his first time out last weekend with Zita and Duckie, after being here for almost six months ^^ Again, thanks to battiegotriddim
