The Land of Adaptations – p.6

June 6, 2012 at 4:43 pm 2 comments

The Centaur did not like to wait, for anything or anyone, but he felt guilty for making a mess of the harvest, so he stood and watched the maid go back to her chore. All the people worked together in such orchestrated, efficient harmony, though it looked very boring to the Centaur. He wondered if he was lonely enough to endure such toil for the sake of companionship, decided he wasn’t, and trotted off quietly towards the west.

He walked for many hours, and found himself in a desert. The sun was low in the sky, so he wasn’t too hot, but he was getting very hungry. There was nothing to see for miles around, and the Centaur had just resigned himself to sleeping on an empty stomach that night when his fore-hoof sloshed right into a shallow pool.

The Centaur looked down; he’d been so intent on scanning the horizon for trees or dwellings that he hadn’t noticed what was right under his feet. There before him was water so clear and full of fish that he almost jumped for joy.

    Fresh fish! If this Centaur can catch enough for two, then I’ll join him for dinner. Yum!!!! He seems very lucky at finding food when it’s time to eat. He would be a really good friend to have:-)
