OMG. That translation challenge has created a monster! I can’t stop!
I was speaking with @dipsykoo and translated that same passage to Chinese (which I will be very quick to say is not his dialect - he speaks Taiwanese but sadly google does not offer that as a translation option). But what it came back with is pure gold! Enjoy:
Shepard tried to come up with a little tip. How Katy forgot about his rubber duck, and even what kind of a dirty boy he needs, is a good scrub. The word was caught in the throat. Suddenly, his fall feeling swept him. Fall into his desperate need of arms. Behind the gravity of reality, he will make himself forget.
Katain’s face also fell - though his eyebrows were worried. “Hey,” he said, rising from the water. He stood two steps before Shepherd, naked. Gently resting his hands on Shephard’s arms. “a terrible day?”
