I am too short for good luck

Mt. Fuji is regarded as a symbol of good luck. Looking out the window of my apartment, I can barely see the top of Mt. Fuji far away after the leaves fall off from the trees nearby. It’s a season I can see it, but I haven’t been able to find it this year where it’s supposed to be. My partner told me that he has seen it for some time. I looked and looked for the unique shape of Mt. Fuji which was hardly overlooked. Then I noticed that the branches of the trees near my apartment had stretched upward. They block Mt. Fuji at my eye level but not at my partner’s who is much taller than I am. No matter how hard I jump, I can’t see the top. Starting this year, I am too short for good luck…

wanted for murder

As I’ve been constantly looking for an apartment online, I found a
pretty good one again. It’s located by a lake near Mt. Fuji and it’s
spacious, furnished and Western-style. Usually, this kind of property is
far above my price range, but this one is discounted considerably so
that it dove into my range. The catch is that the building is very old
by Japanese standards. It’s 36 years old. Still, it’s the most gorgeous
place I could possibly afford. I gathered information about the area,
such as the climate, restaurants, shops and most importantly, the train
and bus schedules because I don’t have a car. I decided to go to look at
the room and sent an e-mail to the real estate company for an
appointment. Meanwhile, I bought a train schedule book and made a
precise plane to go there as a weekend trip. A reply from the real
estate company included the more detailed information about the
apartment. Because it’s old, the water pipes may give out at any moment.
The boiler is broken, too. To finish up, one of the residents is wanted
for murder. It’s not the one again…or, is it…?
