|It's nearly the 25th! I'm so excited!|
|I have a bad feeling about this..
Maybe it's because I'm a dog...
|Really? I have a feeling it'll be fun!|
|"Hello! This is sudden, but I'm begging you!
Finland Santa-san, you must run away!
Just run away from there as fast as you can!!
It's for your own future! I'm seriously pleading here!
Finland Santa and Hana-tamago, hurry and run!
Run away quickly and quietly, and don't make eye contact with that dark shadow to your lower right!"
|What does this letter mean...?|
|I think maybe we should take their advice. My canine instinct tells me this.|
|But I can't just leave my Santa job unfinished...|
|We'll just finish up here real fast and then run!|
|Is it really ok...?|
|Yeah! Ok, next letter!|
|"The Christmas Project is very exciting!
You're wearing a Santa outfit, right Finland-san?
I want to see a full-body picture of Finland's Santa costume!
If possible, I also want to see Hana-tamago in a Santa costume!"
|Here! It's something like this.
|I'm the same as always. Maybe it would've been nice to wear a hat, too.|
Hana-tamago-chan can speak now, so I thought I would take the opportunity to ask.
Do you like the name you got?
I think it's very cute, but when I told my friends they were shocked.
I wonder why?
And it'll be the 25th in a few hours.
I know you're busy with your job but please hurry and end quickly...
Sorry I can only put it so ambiguously.
I was wondering if the three Baltic states were going to come...
I was thinking they might be busy at Russia's, but I would like to see them once.
Well, I'm getting out of here before the black shadow comes!"
|At first, I thought "Wahh! What kind of name is he trying to give me!" Recently though, I've warmed up to it.|
|But still... a "black shadow," a "bloodbath," and "run away"...
It definitely smells like trouble.
I think we should run now.
|What are you talking about! We haven't even replied to all the letters yet! Are you getting stage-fright, Hana-tamago?|
|It's fine. Today is a holy day! I'm sure we're being watched over.|
|... You really are quite optimistic...
Here's a letter.
|"Santa, if you aren't going to run away I think you should at least bring your husband with you. Really. There's a creepy shadow advancing that maybe your husband might not even be able to win against...!"|
|I said he's not my husband...|
|You're worrying too much too, Hana-tamago!|
|I hope it's just that I'm overthinking it...|
Is it okay to still write a letter? Shouldn't you be leaving to give presents soon?
Take care, and do your best!
Also, for a present, I want to see Finland Santa's carefree smile!
It'll definitely brighten the holiday season."
|My smile? Sure, that's easy!
Ok, before we leave we'll take a picture!
|A picture? Yes, that'll make a good commemoration.|
