Sirtip: As you enter Maintenance Department, apart from the busy researchers who operate non-stop twenty-four seven, you also immediately notice a white haired boy, running around the department. Who is he? Why is he so energetic like a charged battery? Hello, Ador!
Ador: (Puts down the deer leg he’s fixing and smiles widely) Hello!
Sirtip: (Looks at the deer leg with surprise) Ador, this deer leg looks extremely heavy. How can you turn it over that easily?
Ador: This? Heavy? (picks up the deer leg with one hand) I think it’s okay!
Sirtip: (Shows much disagreement)…
Ador: Err… Maybe it’s because I followed my dad around fixing things when I was younger. I also had to carry many heavy things, that’s why I’m used to it.
Sirtip: I see, that’s why you are look more muscular than most kids. (feels Ador’s arms) Wow, your muscles! Oh, so your dad also specialized in fixing things huh? Where were you born?
Ador: Yeah, my dad was the only mechanic in the village. So, most of my knowledge on fixing machines were from my dad. We lived in Taiho’s Wander Village. The Vice President was also born in the same place. Because our village was next to the ocean, I would always walk to the beach to watch the sunset turn the water gold (shows an expression of desire) Aigh, I really want to visit the beach!
Ador: Yeah, why don’t we just move our interview to the beach now? It gets boring if we keep doing the interview here. Let’s go, shall we?
Sirtip: (Pats Ador heavily) I like you kiddo.
Ador carries his backpack and the deer leg on the back, and uses his flying machine to take Sirtip to the harbor.
Sirtip, Ador: Wow. The ocean!!!
Sirtip: Ador, let’s talk about your friends first!
Ador: I think I’m very lucky. I have made a lot of good friends here like, Daegan, Hassen, Formerio and Dai Mei. I think most people here are my good friends. However, my best, best, best friend would be Blacko & Paley.
Sirtip: Blacko & Paley? There’s someone like that in Pudoro Corporation?
Ador: Of course not, because Blacko & Paley are two really cute dogs. When I was in Wander Village, they often accompanied me to places. I took them on adventures too!
Sirtip: Adventures? What kind of adventure can you get in a fishing village?
Ador: Then you don’t understand. Outside of our village is this place called Devil’s Crag. I went there once for treasure hunting. I was almost caught by this group of mean looking guys. If it weren’t for my own wittiness then……..Ah! Sirtip, did you want to eat the fish cakes my dad sent me? (opens up his bag, and takes out some fish cakes) These are my favorites. Eating fishing cakes while gazing at the ocean is the most luxurious experience one could ever have.
Sirtip: (takes a piece of fish cake from Ador) Thank you! Still, you didn’t finish what you were saying. What happened at the end?
Ador: (looking a bit awkward) Aiyo, there’s nothing much to talk about. I mean…..I’m perfectly fine standing before you now.
Sirtip: Oh yes. Ador, if you like the ocean that much, and you also grew up in a fishing village, I bet you must be really good at swimming!
Ador: I’m okay! Even though I used to swim a lot, but I haven’t done so for a while. I’m probably not as skilled as before. Still, I used to be able to hold my breath for a couple of minutes.
Sirtip: Wow! That’s amazing, so does everyone who grew up in your village swim this well?
Ador: Hehe..all the kids from our village are skilled swimmers. Even the four-year-old Winkie swims very well. Not a lot of people can swim better than us.
Sirtip: After hearing what you said, my biggest concern is, do you miss your hometown a lot after you left for Pudoro Corporation? Is it hard to adjust to the lifestyle here?
Ador: Of course I missed my hometown a lot at first! Especially being assigned to maintenance department, but now I’m really happy. I have learned a lot from the department and made a lot of friends. Whenever I get homesick and think about my dad, I would come to the harbor and eat the fish cakes from dad like now.
Sirtip: Ador, you really have a positive attitude! I really want to continue with our conversation, but we don’t have enough time today. Maybe we can get together again, as we eat fish cakes and admire the ocean.
Ador: (Laughs happily) Sure, I can’t wait!
