They followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods. They looked needy. They seemed that no forces could impede them today. They are going to make it. They wanted buffaloes and their babies to make themselves home. They were ferocious. All they wanted was space and the right time. The sun was about to set and the breeze had quadrupled. It looked like lighter things are soon going to fly away and rain is going to drown the remaining. But they, they were careful. They knew it was coming. More importantly, they were thousands in number.

The buffaloes and babies had settled. They made the attack and started crawling all over the buffaloes and babies. They made themselves home, under the thick fur, to protect oneself from extreme breeze and thunder.

They, ants, had finally found a place for survival from extreme weather conditions.
