エンジョイシンプルイングリッシュ 11/22 秘密基地/Secret fort
Mommy, where are my cardboard boxes?
They were under my bed.
But they’re gone.
I threw them away when you were at school yesterday, Atsushi.
Mommy, why did you do that?
Did you need them?
Of course, I needed them.
Now, what am I going to use?
What were you going to do with them?
Oh, um, it’s a secret.
You can tell me.
If you tell me, I can help you.
Can you keep a secret?
Are you sure?
Yes, I’m sure.
Now, tell me.
I’m going to make a secret fort.
Oh, a secret fort.
That sounds fun.
Where are you going to make it?
Behind the sofa, Mommy.
I was going to make it with the cardboard boxes.
If we think together, I know we will find something you can use.
But I have to make hoses, OK?
I’m going to shoot missiles from them.
Aha, what are your missiles going to be, Atsushi?
Slippers, of course.
Now, let’s see.
Oh, I know.
Let’s use the two tall chairs from under the kitchen counter.
How do I make them into a secret fort, Mommy?
Sit down between the chairs, Atsushi.
I’m going to use this big towel to make a wall.
Wow, but Mommy, I want a roof.
Then let’s put this long cushion on top of the chairs.
You can lift this cushion and shoot your missiles.
It’s perfect, mommy.
But it’s a little dark in my fort.
I can’t see anything.
You can use this flashlight.
It’s so cool.
Thank you, Mommy.
Now I have to get ready to fight Daddy.
Oops, the bad guy.
Did you say, Daddy, Atsushi?
He made you cry.
I saw you fighting with Daddy last night and you were crying.
So I’m going to protect you, Mommy.
Oh, thank you, Atsushi.
But we weren’t fighting.
Then why were you crying?
Umm, I can’t tell you.
I promised your daddy.
I told you my secret.
He decided we were going to go camping next weekend.
He wanted to surprise you.
But why did you cry, Mommy?
Don’t you want to go?
They were happy tears.
He really loves us.
Then I don’t need a secret fort anymore.
I don’t have to fight Daddy.
But I’m sure it will make him laugh if you hit him with a slipper missile.
Do you think so?
Yes, I do.
Hi, I’m home.
Firing missile number one.
