Maybe a Fake Gintama - Chapter 108
Opening the window and looking up at the dazzling sun, Kawaki stretched and said, “It’s another good day~ Then, it’s decided! Today, I must clear the new game I bought yesterday!”
As he spoke, Kawaki walked to the computer and sat down. He took out the newly bought game disc, but before Kawaki could open the computer, the phone beside him first vibrated.
“Oh, so it’s Kagura-chan. What’s the matter?” Kawaki pressed the answer button and casually replied, “But little uncle really doesn’t have money. All the money for this month has been used to buy games. If it’s pocket money, you can only wait for next month.”
“It’s not that matter-aru!” Kagura replied from the other end, “Sadaharu has become very strange!”
“Strange?” Kawaki was puzzled, “If it’s sick, hurry up and send it to the veterinary hospital. It must have eaten something strange. So, you have to pay attention to raising dogs or something.”
“It’s not that!” Kagura’s anxious voice came from the other end, “Sadaharu seems to have grown up!”
“Grown up? Is that what you mean!!” Kawaki decisively thought of some kind of scene about the arrival of spring and the revival of all things and then thought of the strange words that Kagura said…
“I got it! In short, let’s sterilize it first! This situation was very normal! Although I knew that it might be unfair to Sadaharu, there were many benefits to sterilizing a dog! Now, you had to hide all the things like pillows in the house. Otherwise, with Sadaharu’s size, it would be very dangerous! First, you should take him out to run around and blow away his excitement. I’ll be right there! Let Gintoki prepare the money for sterilization!”
“I understand-aru!” Kagura hung up the phone after she finished speaking.
“What are you doing? What did Kawaki-san say?” Looking at Kagura, who was rummaging through boxes and hiding the pillows, Shinpachi asked expressionlessly.
“My uncle said that he should put away all the pillows in the house and said that the dog’s condition is very normal-aru.” Kagura said as she packed up, “In the end, he told Gin-chan to prepare the money for Sadaharu’s sterilization.”
“Hey, what did you tell him?” Shinpachi asked with a dark face.
“I was just telling the truth. Sadaharu was a little strange and grown up-aru,” Kagura wiped the sweat off her face, “Phew~ I finally put all the pillows away”
“That’s not what it means! No, it’s not that you are wrong, it’s that he understands wrong!” Shinpachi roared, “Is that all he can think of in his mind?! Is the [grown up] he thinks is the kind of [grown up]”
“Eh? Isn’t that so-aru?”
“Of course not!” Shinpachi angrily pointed at Sadaharu, who had enlarged several times, “Although the two types of [Grown up] belong to the physiological sense, they are not the same thing at all!”
Just as the two of them began to quarrel, Sadaharu lowered his head and put both of them in his mouth. At this time, Gintoki, who had been drinking outside the whole night, came back…
“Hey… I’m back…” Gintoki pushed open the door and staggered into the house. After taking off his shoes, he lay down at the entrance, “Gin-san is back… Ah, it’s really a little disgusting… Did anyone bring me a cup of strawberry milk… Σ_(´ཀ`」 ∠)_…”
“What? You haven’t gotten up yet?” Gintoki murmured, “What a bunch of lazy brats…”
As he spoke, Gintoki slowly crawled into the living room and pushed open the door, “Hey, strawberry… milk…” Just as he said this, Gintoki noticed that something was not right. The upper body of Kagura and Shinpachi was still in the mouth of the enlarged Sadaharu.
“What’s going on? It looks like I drank too much…” Gintoki wiped his eyes, “Why does Sadaharu look so much bigger than usual… Hey, Shinpachi, don’t poke your head everywhere. Get me a glass of strawberry milk…”
After saying that, Gintoki laid down again.
“What nonsense are you talking about in broad daylight?! Why don’t you take a look at the current situation!” Shinpachi and Kagura pushed open Sadaharu’s mouth at the same time and shouted at Gintoki.
“Sadaharu… Sadaharu suddenly grew up overnight! Hurry up and take out the money for sterilization!” Kagura shouted.
“I already said that it was not what it meant! Don’t believe whatever Kawaki-san says! Besides, you have to ask Sadaharu for his opinion on sterilization!” Shinpachi complained loudly.
“Aren’t you guys too noisy… I can’t entirely agree with things like sterilization. Don’t think that those experts always say that sterilization is for dogs’ good. Why don’t they cut off their own two meatballs?” Gintoki muttered.
“Raise your head and take a look! That’s not the case at all!” Shinpachi cursed, his veins popping out, “Grown up isn’t the kind of growth! I’m talking about size!”
“Body size? Then there’s even less to worry about. Men and dogs are the same. After two to three days of not seeing each other, they will be so big that they won’t recognize each other.” Gintoki replied casually.
“Your words are always the same. You are destined to be a good-for-nothing for the rest of your life!”
Just as Shinpachi finished speaking, Sadaharu exerted a bit of strength and closed his mouth again…
“Ah!” × 2
“I’m here…” Kawaki shouted and stepped directly into Yorozuya. As he walked, he said, “You have to comfort Sadaharu well before the operation. After all, this is also for its own good. After all, it is difficult to find a female dog of the same size as Sadaharu…”
As he said that, Kawaki had already come to the living room. He saw that Kagura was feeding Sadaharu strawberry milk with a huge basin. Looking at Sadaharu, who was several times larger, Kawaki finally understood that he had misunderstood.
“Ah, Kawaki-san, you are here!” Shinpachi was surprised and said, “Look at Sadaharu! Didn’t you say that Sadaharu is an Inugami? Do you know this kind of dog very well? What is the matter with Sadaharu becoming so big overnight?”
“How do I know? I just know its species, and I don’t know anything about the rest.” Kawaki sighed and walked to Sadaharu, “Maybe Inugami is this kind of creature, the kind that can grow up overnight. It is not a strange thing.”
“Well,” Gintoki nodded to show understanding, “It is the same as a boy, and he will get an incredible growth overnight.”
“You are right.” Kawaki nodded as well.
“You are right my ass! You guys are just talking about psychological growth!” Shinpachi ridiculed, “This is the growth of a body! It’s completely different from what you guys are talking about!”
“But it doesn’t matter,” Kagura looked up and said with a smile, “Even if it becomes bigger, its personality will not change. Sadaharu still likes strawberry milk the most~”
“But why did it become like this? I thought that Kawaki-san can give us an explanation.” Shinpachi sat on the side and sighed.
“I am not an animal expert… Don’t count on me for everything.”
“You must have let it absorb calcium. Don’t underestimate calcium,” Gintoki said as he took a sip of strawberry milk, “As long as you absorb calcium, everything will go smoothly!”
“Which matter of yours went smoothly…” Shinpachi glanced at Gintoki and ridiculed him. Then he looked at Sadaharu, “What’s important now is the solution. It has already grown so big…”
“I thought of two possibilities…” Kawaki frowned and analyzed.
“Two?!” Shinpachi was a little surprised, “Two possibilities in a short period of time!”
“Yes,” Kawaki raised his head and replied seriously, “The first one is a natural evolution, maybe this kind of evolution method unique to this types of dogs. It’s just like the Digimon next door, but looking at this situation, it seems that the possibility of evolving is higher.”
“Hey?! Is this the setting of this work?!” Shinpachi was so shocked that he stood up, “Are we going to enter the digital world to save this world?! Are we also the chosen children?!”
“How is that possible!” Gintoki shouted.
“If not, then there is only the second possibility,” Kawaki said again and then raised his head with a serious face, “Do you know [Pym particle]?”
“Pym particle?! Isn’t that the setting in “Ant-Man”? You mean…”
Without waiting for Shinpachi to finish, Kawaki nodded and continued to analyze, “Maybe it was because it swallowed the Ant-Man’s DVD; that’s why it became like this!”
“Why did it become like this after swallowing a DVD! I thought you were going to say that he swallowed the Pym particle!” Shinpachi couldn’t help but retort, “Also, don’t casually use other people’s settings! You will be accused of infringement!”
“Don’t worry about that! A certain author has already made some trade with several writers who write Digimon and Marvel fanfic! There will be no problem!”
“It doesn’t make any sense at all, okay!” Shinpachi scolded, “If you want to trade, you must at least trade with the original! Isn’t this still an infringement?!”
“What’s the use of telling me?” Kawaki waved his hand and casually said, “It’s ambiguous to say that fanfiction novels don’t constitute infringement. Some say infringement, some say no infringement, and there is no certainty at all. Besides, don’t forget that this work is also a fanfiction work…”
“Don’t worry, Shinpachi. At a time like this, you should…” Speaking of this, Gintoki took out a small dog-like screen from his bosom or a translator, “I’m scared woof~(Dog language translation machine).”
“As long as you use this, you can change the dog’s barking into words,” Gintoki explained with the translator.
“Eh? What’s the matter with posing as a Doraemon?! Also, when did you get such a convenient machine!” With so many words in one go, Shinpachi’s ability to retort was indeed good. Seeing this scene, Kawaki showed a face of gratification.
