The Hatchlings

This Post is written for the Incredible Blogger Marathon Challenge. The challenge has 10 tasks and this is the fifth one.

IBMC #05: The Not So Quite Quote Challenge is a challenge where we are supposed to use the given quotes and build a story. (Check the link for more)


Here goes my prompt:

The hatch-lings in the nest were pretty grown up and ready to fly. They asked their mother,
“Mother, do you have any advice?”

 The mother said with care,
“You will be confused at times. Should you sound? Should you echo? And it’s all because of your thoughts. They do what you don’t ask for.”

The little ones were confused. They said,
“Mother, We knew it. That we don’t know!”

Mother explained,
“My dear ones. Things are learnt while you explore.  I need not answer all your questions (mother laughed and laughed again).  My only advice is to be careful about the big birds. Run home or hide when you see so. But remember, I am always behind your back to protect you. Fear not!”

The little ones were now comfortable. They were also ready to do their first fly.

At times, we pretend to think on one and actually think everything else! The story is simple. The first ones are always special and if it involves our loved one, it’s always in our heart.

Feel free to take up the challenge if interested.
