It was early morning when Kuto awoke from his slumber. The sun had not yet risen, but the sky was aglow with the light of a new day. Kuto yawned and stretched his arms above his head, taking in a deep breath of fresh air. It was then that he noticed the smell.
The stench was overpowering, like rotting flesh mixed with sewage. It made Kuto’s stomach churn and brought tears to his eyes. He covered his nose and mouth with one hand and tried to hold his breath, but it was impossible to block out the disgustingly putrid smell completely.
Kuto looked around, trying to identify the source of the odor. At first he thought it might be coming from one of the nearby houses, but there didn’t seem to be anything out of the ordinary there. Then he noticed movement further down the street and realized that there were people walking around in what appeared to be garbage bags!
As he watched them closer, Kuto saw that they were picking up trash from the ground and placing it into their bags. They seemed oblivious to the nauseating smell that wafted through the air or perhaps they were just used to it by now. Either way, Kuto couldn’t imagine why anyone would want to live in such a disgusting place!
