A Japanese Redneck House

A Japanese Redneck House
Illustrated by Redneck Hiro

Tuesday, July 19, 2011



A red fox lived in my yard. In my home in Japan, foxes trick people. They turn into pretty women. They know I like pretty women.

At midnight somebody came knocking on my door. It was a woman who I knew in my home town but I had not seen her for fifty years. Her name is Yuki.

She said, “Good evening, I looking for Hiro.

I asked her, “Who are you?”

“I am Yuki. Do you remember me?”

“Yes, I remember. Come in. How you find me here?”

“I asked your sister. Do you know I can’t speak English. Hard to find here.”

Yuki was two years older than me. She worked helping my sister before she got married.
I was in high school. She always had a beautiful smile. I liked her but she had a fiancé. We work in the rice fields & cut rice together. She got married. I went college and Came to United States.

Fifty years pass by

She was still looking good and beautiful smile too.  I gave her one bedroom. Eat, sleep that night. Next morning she didn’t wake up. I knocked on the bedroom door.

No answer.

I opened the door. Nobody there.

I called my sister and asked her, “Hey, Yuki still ok?”

She answer, “Who you talking about?”

“Yuki-san use to work with you.”

My sister told me, “She pass away exactly one year ago yesterday.” I went to her memorial service.”

“Is that so? I don’t believe it. She visit me last night. Sleep this house. But I can’t find her this morning. What have you done to her?”


“You must have done something bad.”

My sister said, “I am so scared. Don’t tell me that kind of story”.

Anyway watch out from now on. I think my red fox tricked me.
