Thanks to Sadje for another WDYS challenge. You can find more details here
( For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a baby monkey looking down from branches of a tree)
I had to hide, that thing was bigger than me, bigger than my Mom and my Dad!
This tree was perfect and I was able to snuggle down in the trunk out of danger.
But I fell asleep.
And now I don’t know where my Mommy and Daddy are.
I’m frightened and alone.
It’s getting dark and that thing might be back.
There is nobody around. All my friends scattered and fled to their own hiding places.
I didn’t see where they went, I was too intent saving my own skin.
I WON’T CRY! I WON’T!!! I’m not a baby…………
But I want my Mommy!
An hour later, two adults came searching.
‘There he is……….. Come on son, you can come down now. It’s safe.’
Daddy!!!!!! and the youngster dropped into his father’s waiting arms.
