The Village Cookie
The Story :
Once upon a time in an abstract world, there live a butterfly species called FlutterBlooms. These butterflies are known for their wings which have flower motifs on them. These butterflies feed only on flowers. For generations, the elders wud tell the young ones to stay away from anything that doesn’t resemble a flower, especially those nasty polka dot things called mushrooms. One bite on that and the entire colony wud be gone in a matter of days. And so the young obeyed.
But one day, one of them, whose vision is rather impaired, mistook a mushroom for a flower & started to feed on it.
The moment she nibbled on the mushroom, the world seemed to change. Somehow, everything seemed brighter & colorful & everything smells refreshing! She also felt as if weight has been taken off of her wings & she seems to be floating like an angel. There were other changes too. Her vision somehow became perfect & she noticed her wings have formed a different pattern, a mushroom pattern to be exact. It also seems that she’s emitting some kind of heady scent. And once & for all she knew, she has eaten the forbidden fruit. Yet, it wasn’t sadness or fear that overtook her. She found herself in an extremely happy state & that made her giggled continuously.
By the time the full change took effect, the others were on their way to another field to a new home. The elders spoke to the young ones there. They were warned not to go anywhere near her because she has now turned into a FlutterShroom. If they inhaled one whiff of her scent, the whole community will be under threat.
But u see, young ones are difficult to control. Some of them were curious & intrigued & wanted to see what has happened to their friend. And so they quietly fluttered back to their old home to spy on her. They were careful to keep a distance but they didn’t realise that they weren’t far enough & soon, they too started to change cos they have inhaled her scent. What happens after that? Party!!!!!!!
