Ant story


She could swear that the waterfall emerged out of nowhere, as she was sucked, or most probably shoved underground and entered a underground tunnel, trying her best to not drown in that rushing water.

She has been walking on the shore, for hours, looking for any sign of life, when she slipped and fell into the lake.

She was swimming to the shore when the water of the lake suddenly parted around her, the lake shrunk and she felt a sudden weightlessness, then the water fell below, like a waterfall with her.

She fell on rock, the water saved her from hurt, she was trying hard to regain her steps then the avalanche of water fell on her, out of nowhere at all. Now she was flowing with the water in an underground tunnel.

Heaven only knew what was waiting on other side.

Jimmy placed his binoculars aside and ran inside. He had to tell mommy what he saw right now.

He was doing his favourite thing, watching the anthill with his daddy’s binocular zoomed to the maximum point.

There was a small waterhole beside it, he called it their lake, he saw a strange insect crawling beside it; the insect looked just like a miniature girl, only it was deep red in colour. It slipped into the waterhole;

A little later an ant came there, it was not from the anthill, it was bigger, and it was carrying a strange thing in its mouth that looked like a pitcher, it dipped the pitcher in the waterhole, scooped out water, but the girl-like insect too got sucked inside.

When the ant saw the girl-like it dropped the water in a drain like ditch, then it dropped another pitcher full at it, to wash it away. The girl-like insect vanished.

Mommy was in kitchen, she was baking cake; the kitchen was filled with its yummy aroma.

“O honey!” mommy hugged him to her soft body; it smelt like the cake she was baking when she heard his story.

She dipped her face in his curly hair and kissed his head.

“Tell me what else you see!” she softly smiled.
He ran out of the kitchen as she watched tenderly at his disappearing back.
