[mi-] Mickey Mouse is [2] inside the [-(e)ng] English manor, wearing a 冖 crown. He sits upon a small red velvet throne. One of the butlers gives him a gift, and he opens the 亠 lid of it and out comes a 日 sun that flies with two ハ fins. It is so bright that it forces Mickey to 瞑 close the eyes. In fact, everyone there 瞑 closes the eyes because of the bright ハ finned 日 sun.
