Jubei walked into the home, and could see the occasional rat scurry across the hard wood floors. This was truly an infestation problem of epic proportions, and one he wasn't expecting honestly. However, he accepted the challenge unsure of how he wanted exactly to proceed. Then he decided to build a massive trap that will swiftly kill the rats, and can kill multiple rats at one time. Jubei paced around the general living area, with his arms crossed behind his back as he continued to contemplate on the matter.
"Hmm...Ok, im going to need a few supplies. However this should work out perfectly." Jubei said to them with a reassuring smile. He began to scourer around their home for required items for his contraption. They had nearly everything he needed except a powerful spring to move the blades he was inserting back and forth.
"Well, I would guess Jeffa's trinkets and gandgets, would be the best place to find such a thing. Might even find more items you could use there." The wife said to Jubei when he asked them where he could locate such an item. After receiving the directions, Jubei quickly made his way to the shop.
The shop was filled wall to wall with a massive amount of items. They all ranged from a tiny spring to a massive engine, from thrifty in price to very hefty. Jubei attempted to spend a little amount of time there, although he ended up shopping for an hour. He left the trinket shop with two bags filled with random items for himself, and a single powerful spring in his back pocket needed for his trap.
"Smelly grand cheese!"A Voice shouts towards passer bys as Jubei walks pass. Immediately registering the love rats have for this fine cheese, he purchased a nice roll of it. With his hands now completely full, he made his way back to the home of the couple and began creating the trap, which didn't take long at all.
"Ok finished!, now let me show you how this will work. Jubei said proudly of his invention. He took a large chunk from the cheese he kept protected from the rats. The lump of cheese was then placed inside of a mechanism that sprayed a thin layer of cheese outside of the rat holes, and lead directly to his hidden trap. Instantly massive amounts of rats began pouring out eating and following the cheese to their deaths. The Machine was powerful enough to slay up to 70 rats, before it would need to be cleaned, and the tiny corpses dumped. The couple were astounded at the new invention from Jubei, and promptly paid him his due jewels. Jubei walked of happy, and hungry, now thinking about his next meal.
