The Haniwa’s morning began early. This was because Kiriha rose early, she had the important duty of making breakfast in room 106. The Haniwa followed her to the room.
“Ho-, Yurika-chan is still sleeping, ho-.”
“First we’ll wipe the drool, ho-.”
“…ngh, I, I can’t eat any mooore. Uhe, uhe, uhehehehe…”
Their first job was to wake Yurika. From their experience so far, she wouldn’t wake in the mornings under her own power. She also often slept improperly for a girl, so she had to be able to correct that before Koutarou got up.
“We’ll shake her, ho-. Even though we know it won’t wake her, we’ll still do it, ho-.”
“We’re hard workers, ho-. We love work, ho-. We’re the model servant, ho-.”
The Haniwa went inside the wardrobe and quickly began shaking Yurika. A normal person would have woken, but Yurika wasn’t normal, and didn’t wake.
“Bufefefefe… Well, it’s an all-you-can-eat after all… So I’ll get my money’s worth and go home… Bufe bufefefe.”
“Brother, she’s not going to wake any time soon, ho-.”
“Then, next we’ll do this, ho-.”
The Haniwa knew this would happen, so they soon moved to their next plan and began tickling her nose with feathers that they’d brought. It had brought certain victory for them recently.
“… Ahh, ahh…”
Yurika’s nose quickly started to itch.
“It’s working, ho-.”
“One more breath, ho-.”
Sensing Yurika’s oncoming sneeze, they strengthened their tickling, however.
“Ho-! Ho ho ho-!”
However, Yurika wasn’t to be underestimated, she rolled over in her sleep, onto the Haniwa.
“Ane-go, Ane-go! The tables have turned, ho-!”
Yurika still showed no signs of waking, as the Haniwa struggled underneath her. It may have seemed like they were suffering an awful fate, but they were actually happy. They loved Yurika, even if she’d given them a hard job.
