The young lad, Mokuba Kaiba had no father, and his mother named Ishizu Ishtar who wore a white and brown dress, well, she was at her wit's end. Especially since that she had been complaining about being poor, having no food to eat, and for her and her son's cow not having any milk at all as she was doing the laundry.
I wish my son were not a fool
I wish my house was not a mess
I wish the cow was full of milk
I wish the walls were full of gold
I wish a lot of things
She entered the house, and gasped in shock as she stopped dead in her tracks when she saw Milky-White standing there. She looked at Mokuba, and said "What in heaven's name are you doing with the cow inside the house?!" I thought if he were nice and warm, he might produce some milk." Mokuba said. "It's a she!" Ishizu said. "How many times must I tell you? Only shes can give milk!" She then hit her son on the back of his head as he yelped in pain.
-In the bakery-
And then there was a hungry little girl who always wore a red cape. She had blond hair, light green eyes, and she wore a light blue dress, white socks, and black Mary-Jane shoes, and is named Rebecca Hawkins. She reached for a cookie as Marik caught her, and said "Hey!" She held onto the cookie, and tried to look as innocent as possible, despite that she took a big bite of the cookie, and recieved a glare from the baker.
It’s not for me
It’s for my granny in the woods
A loaf of bread, please, to bring my poor old hungry granny in the woods
Just a loaf of bread, please
-In Ryou Bakura's house-
Mai Valentine, Tea Gardner, and Mana continued laughing at Ryou Bakura who just stared at them sadly. His stepmother and stepsisters gave him the cruel nickname, CinderRyou, because his face was always covered in ashes and cinders when he was cleaning the fireplace. Then, Mai Valentine picked up a large bowl of lentils, and tossed them into the fireplace as she said "CinderRyou, if you can pick up these lentils, and finish your chores in time, then you may go to the ball with us." She looked at Tea Gardner and Mana, and said "Come along, ladies." "Yes, mother." Tea Gardner and Mana said at the same time. Mai Valentine and Tea Gardner left the kitchen as Mana looked at Ryou Bakura, and smirked as she mockingly said "Good luck." She then took off to follow her mother, and her sister. Ryou Bakura dropped to the floor to pick up the lentils. Realizing that he needed help, he took a deep breath, and closed his eyes.
Come little birds
Down from the eaves and the leaves
Over fields, out of castles and ponds
Inside Mokuba's house, he was trying to milk Milky-White with his mother watching him. Suddenly Ishizu heard vocalizing, and birds squalling outside. She looked out through a tiny hole to see a flock of birds flying together.
No, squeeze, pal
The flock of birds flew over to Ryou Bakura's house, and flew into the chimney. Ryou Bakura then placed the large bowl in front of the fireplace as the birds helped him pick up all of the lentils, so that he would have a chance to go to the festival with his stepfamily.
Quick, little birds, flick through the ashes
Pick and peck, but swiftly, sift through the ashes
Into the pot
Back at the farmhouse, Mokuba was sitting on Milky-White's back as if she was a horse. He released a sling, sending a stone hurdling towards a tin can on the top of the door frame. The stone hit the can, knocking it to the ground, and startling Ishizu who opened the door, and the can nearly missed her. "Bullseye!" Mokuba said smiling. "What are you doing?!" Ishizu asked. "Stop your pretending!" She took his sling, and pulled Mokuba away from Milky-White as she said "Now listen to me well, son. Milky-White must be taken to market." "Mother, no! He's the best cow in the world!" Mokuba said. "Was." Ishizu said. "She has been dry for weeks, now! We've no food or money, and no choice but to sell her." "But, Milky-White is my best friend!" Mokuba said. Ishizu shook her head in exasperation, and said "Look at her!" "But-!" Mokuba tried to say, but his mother interrupted him, and said "No buts!"
There are bugs on her dugs
There are flies in her eyes
There’s a lump on her rump big enough to be a hump
We’ve no time to sit and dither while her withers wither with her
And no one keeps a cow for a friend
"Sometimes I wonder what's going on in that head of yours." Ishizu said as she held onto Mokuba's face. She then slapped the back of his head, making him yelp in pain in the process.
