In the evening, my mother called me from the ground floor to receive the egg parcel, so I went down with heavy steps.
“Is it meats and fruits again?”
My mother curiously looks into it.
I had to explain it to her anyway so I opened the parcel in the living room.
Inside the box there were shock absorbers and an egg was buried at it’s center.
It feels quite hard after taking it out. According to my research yesterday, lizard and snake eggs are often soft but this seems to be quite hard.
“Oh it’s an egg, but this is not a chicken’s.”
“Well, I think it’s probably a reptile egg.”
I peeked at my mother’s face to confirm her reaction…..but she wasn’t making any disgusted face…that’s surprising.
“Maybe you … are you trying to raise a reptile for Sayuki’s favor?”
I don’t understand what my mother wants to say.
“That’s because she likes reptiles. Dad also likes them, so it’s in the blood.”
“Is that so???????”
“When he used to live alone, Dad used to keep a lizard but I could’nt handle it so after the marriage he left it at his parents house. Sayuki seems to liked it a lot so she now keeps it in her room.”
I didn’t know that.
Sayuki is a reptile fan???
… Well it made sense I guess. I havn’t entered my sister’s room for almost a decade. Reptiles don’t make much noise so I never heard it scream or anything.
“It seems like you become accustomed to lizards by watching it. It’s amazing that I get used to it as well”
I was in total shock. I didn’t know what my sister liked but I didn’t think that she kept a reptile as a pet for years.
It’s all because of the past decade, I used to avoid excessive contact with my sister and escape the reality. I really need to improve my relationships.
Thanks to my family’s unexpected tastes, the egg problem seems to be solved quite easily.
Maybe I can ask my sister about the hatching method when she comes back today. Should I wrap the egg in a towel and leave it in the room for now?
Surely, if you want to hatch an egg then you would protect it carefully, but this egg’s shell is hard, almost like an iron, so it should be okay.
Water is important. I borrowed some soil from my mother’s kitchen garden, moisten it using the spray bottle and left the egg on it. 
This is all I can do for the time being. I should follow my sister’s instruction without doing anything excessive now.
I texted my sister saying that I have something to ask her when she comes back. I couldn’t help it but I should probably check if she is free.
“I am coming home early today so we can eat the dinner together.”
Sayuki, aren’t you working?
I was a little worried about whether she could be annoyed because I disturbed her work. Since, I am left behind a decade so I don’t know about the common sense of today’s working society.
