Kagi was a happy baby, always smiling and laughing. Her parents were sure she would be an animal lover from the first moment she picked up her Animal Touch and Feel book. She sat for well over an hour, stroking the tail of the bunny with a look of fascination. Her father dressed his fingers in little animal puppets, making up a roaring voice for the King the lion and a trumpet for Trunkly, the friendly elephant. He made Hopper the bunny especially for Kagi. Her mother knitted a quilt for her bed with letters of the alphabet represented by animals. R was of course reserved for a rabbit.
At two she was hopping around the family room in a Halloween bunny costume she insisted on wearing. Her mother got in the habit of sneaking it into the wash when Kagi was asleep. Since bunny rabbits do not have a unique sound like dogs that go Bark or kitties that Meow, Kagi learned to say "Boing, boing, boing". Unlike most little children, she learned to love carrots and lettuce when she was told they were the favorite foods of rabbits everywhere.
She did not get to visit her first zoo until her fourth birthday because the best zoo was over 50 miles away. Her aunt took the whole family as a special treat. Kagi enjoyed looking at the giraffes with their long necks and she squealed in delight when the seal came up to the glass and blew a string of bubbles. Her excitement doubled when she saw the sign for the petting zoo. She petted the fleecy lamb and the adorable little calf. It was her father who pointed out the rabbit hutch.
She ran forward wtih a delighted gasp, falling to her knees and sticking her hand through the mesh to pet the luxurious fur of a beautiful white rabbit.
Something was wrong. Great puffy red marks broke out on her hand and she began to gasp for breath. Her mother snatched her up, rushing Kagi to the zoo's infirmary. The nurse assured her parents that this was not the first time a child had a reaction to animal fur. Kagi cried as she was given a shot. Her parents held her hands and promised everything would be alright and that they would go for ice cream. Ice cream was indeed wonderful, but it could not make up for the fact that she could never have her own adorable little bunny. Their planned trip to the pet store was cancelled.
The family relocated when Kagi was fifteen. She would miss the blue house where she had lost her first tooth, learned to ride a bike, and tamed a small sparrow to eat from her hand. But Kagi was excited to move to a place with a real forest. When other children were picking teams in the schoolyard, Kagi could always be found admiring the daisies trying to survive in a lot covered in concrete.
The brown house was small but she loved how the driveway was bordered by massive pine trees. She was even more excited when she found out about the large closet in her new bedroom. She hung up her giant sweaters by color, taking her time to then sort each color group from her most to least favorite sweater. Members of her family always sent her new pieces for her collection to celebrate her birthday or Christmas. She owned ugly sweaters, fluffy wool sweaters, sweaters with the names of colleges, tourist attraction sweaters, and animal print sweaters with every imaginable animal.
Her newest sweater had been sent by her Grandma just a week before the kindly old lady's death. She hadn't had the chance to wear it yet since the weather had been very mild, but today felt like a good day. The soft, puffy sleeves felt so good on her bare arms as she walked into the backyard to explore the bordering forest.
She did not have to look far to find the bank of the river. It was not a scary river that moved too fast and threatened to swallow her up. Nor was it a nasty river full of mud and twigs. It was a quiet, peaceful river that smelled much like the lemon and honey her mother always added to teacups before pouring the tea.
Kagi could not resist leaping into the water, though as her legs left the ground, she had this nagging feeling that her mother would be annoyed. Her mother was always trying to teach her about laundry but usually ended up just doing the loads. Kagi couldn't understand why you needed a machine when nature provided such clear and pure water.
Her sweater became heavy. She pulled it off with a giggle, bundling it into her arms. She nearly threw it in the water when it began to wriggle.
She looked down at the river in wonder. She'd heard of sacred rivers before, but never dreamed she'd be lucky enough to find one. The plaid patches grew, shifted, and changed until she held in her hands an adorable plaid bunny with a wiggling nose and long, sensitive whiskers.
She walked back to shore, setting the bunny on the ground and gently stroking her head. "You smell just like Aiyu jelly and that is what I'll name you. You are my Aiyu and I will take care of you always".
Aiyu bounded around the girl, drying her short fur in the light of the sun. They played all sorts of games from hide and go seek to tag. Kagi was a child again, making up for years of being told she must grow up and act her age. She had never had so much fun. Aiyu shared in her joy, increasing it simply by being there.
They played until the sun was near to setting. Kagi scooped up her dear new companion and walked along the small path that had led her to the river, eager to show her parents that magic is real.
