Episode I - The Dangerous Walking
Two little earthworms were talking about walking around to feel the taste of a good adventure.
_ But we alrready live in a nice place dear! (Said Sinddy)
_ You call this horrible earth hole a nice place? You must be kidding girl! Come on girl, let’s walk around to find something better to do than stay here dirtying my nice hair in this horrible place.
Fefe call her haira piece of corn yarns she put in her head. That's look so funny!
_ But Fefe, daddy told us to not go so far from here. The jungle is dangerous!
_Oh no! I forgot my baits. I am so far from home to come back. I have to find something around here to serve as baits.
_Hurry Fefe, lets hide ourselves unless that guy can capture us.
Suddenly the fisherman caught that beautiful earthworm (Fefe) that was just in his way. He puts her inside his bait tin and went back to fish very happy.
_What a wonderful view up here! I can look the lake, look the mountains!
_Oh, no! What can I do to save that crazy girl! (said Sinddy)
While he was preparing his tools to fish, Sinddy arrived nearby.
_Let’s go way Fefe, hurry!
_You look so calm to someone who almost became a fish food!
_Yep, let’s go, let’s go!
_Where we are? (Said Sinddy)
_You said Beautiful? We are totally lost and you are appreciating the view!
_Be carefull Fefe, there are a lot of birds here. Let’s go away from here immediately.
Suddenly a mother bird flied down and captured both of them and went to her nest to feed her babies with those appetizing earthworms.
_You never appreciate the adventure time girl! Look the view here. Up here you can see all the jungle, the river, the mountains. The view is simple wonderful flying over here!
_ Come on girl, I have a plan!
_Uau! It was cool! (Said Fefe)
_At least we felt down in a round walker stone!
After running for a while they found a strange guy in their way!
_Very tired. Who are you? (Sinddy asked him)
The guy was a earthworm like them, but covered with tattoos and rings along all his body.
_ Let’s go home Fefe, daddy said to not talk with strange people.
_Why not? I like special things! (said Fefe)
_ Don’t worry Sinddy, come with me. (said Allan)
_ Are you seeing that crocodile? Sometimes during his sleeping he opens his mouth and I just entered inside his mouth while he takes some air. Just before he closes his mouth I leave away. It’s really exciting!
_Are youcrazy, Fefe? (asked Sinddy)
Allan just waited the exact moment while the crocodile open his mouth to enter inside that enormous mandible. It took fill seconds until the crocodile closed the mouth, but Allan stay there until the limit time and escaped.
After repeating the Allan insane experience Fefe asked him for more adventures.
_No problems. Let’s go to the lake that you will feel the liberty. (invited Allan)
_Come on, lets try it before! (said Fefe)
_We live in a dirty and horrible earth hole in the other side of the river.(answered Fefe)
_ I think I know where is it. The earthwormsland, isn't it? (said Allan)
_We can talk about it later. Let’s go to the river Allan. (said Fefe very excited)
_I knew you always have a surprise. Anyway I do not have choices. (said Sinndy)
_You must be kidding, guy. I will never…(Sinddy was interrupted by her sister)
Some moment later they are navigating in their improvised boat made by trees leafs.
_Help meeeeee! (screamed Sinddy)
Moments later they were almost arriving in one old bridge while Allan said.
Holding the bridge all of them jumped from the leaves to the river margin.
_Where do you go Allan? (asked Fefe)
_Finally home! (Said the relieved Sinddy)
Both earthworms came back home. While Fefe continue planning the next adventure time, Sinddy tried to make their daddy believe what happened with them, but sure he never believed in her fantastic histpries. By the way it was so fantastic to someone believes.
Episode II - A Bath at the Moon Night
Can you imagine what it means for a earthworm dive into a lake in the pale moonlight? Well, the fishermen say that the best phase of the moon to fish is justthe full moon. I do not know whether it is scientific or true but the fact is get a bath in the lake is a bit risky for a little earthworm. So let's see how it all happened with our adventurous Fefe and Sinddy.
It was an evening of summer and after one full day to mess around the community of earthwormsland, Fefe was delighted with that night that was approaching. It was possible to see the beautiful full moon with that effort took its role as governor of the night. Most of the community of earthwormsland was preparing to sleep, but Fefe does not comply with that routine. Suddenlyshehad a "brilliant" idea.
_ Hey Sinddy what you think of the lake until we take this wonderful evening of moonlight with a refreshing bath.
_ You're crazy Fef Have never heard that lakes and rivers do not mix with earthworms!
_ Sinddy ,but tonight is a must, we have to speed up things. And nothing like a good bath to moonlight. I can imagine a great diving and the conquest of an old challenge that I make myself to touch the bottom of the lake and catch up for breath.
_ Glad you're kidding Fef If it were true ...
_ Kidding? Well, wait just to see what I am going to do right now.
_ Where are you going?
_ I am going to the lake.
_ Do not do it Fef
_ Sorry,but I am going now.
And so follows Fefat an accelerated pace towards the lake which was some 200 meters away. Sinddy desperate attempts to warn parents of the sister of madness. As always your parents not to have led to serious. When Sinddy looked around, Fefwas away and she decided to run to reach it.
_ Wait Fef She screameddesperate but Fefcould not hear it.
Sinddy thinks that things would not be so easy.
It was extended holiday and many people are directed to the that region for camping. The road was very busy. Fefinconsequential as always approached the edge of the road to face its first challenge. It was a road-way, or not had that famous border between the track of who comes and who goes track. She thought with itself.
Already breathless from both Sinddy could barely run screaming to alert the sister of the risk she ran crossing the road. In turn Fefnot matter if the motion of the road. To note that this light (which was the beacon of cars) was small, it risked in crossing the road. In this moment Sinddy already approached the edge of the road, but exhausted. Almost breathless or you stay standing still risked a last cry.
_ Wait Fefthe car 's close.
But nothing said. Fefcourageously followed the risky crossing. As we all know earthearthworms not move as quickly to cross a road before a car passes. When reaching half of one of the meanings of the road a car was already coming. Sinddy to contemplate the scene closed eyes imagining the misery that would happen. The car really came through on the Fef howevershe was between the wheels of the vehicle and was not achieved.
_ Uhhhhuuuh! Exclaimed Fef Man, if I knew that was so exciting I would come here more often.
Meanwhile Sinddy already pale, risked opening the eyes of the tragedy and instead saw his sister standed in the other side of the road looking for her and sending bye bye.
_ Sinddy try yourself now.(Said Fef
Sinddy decide being in risk to follow her crazy sister.Fortunatelly nothing happend with her too.
The effort to save her sister was with her in the same dangerous situation.
_ Great little sister ! (Said Fef Now the other way.
Still recovering from a mixture of anger and fearSinddy not replied.
But for Fefthat was just the first step of adventure.
_ Let's go little sister before the early morning or we did not seize the night well.
Sinddy came to think that what was already sufficient for her crazy sister, but soon realized that the her stupid acts had no limits.
_ You are not serious, aren't you? You just want me become nervous.
_ I never said so serious in my life. And he followed into the lake.
Seeing that it would be impossible to halt the madness of the sister, Sinddy resolved follow her until the lake. At the edge of the lake Fefwas a kind of heating while the Sinddy noted.
_ My slim body would do a great evidence of success in swimming.
_ I know, I know. Said Sinddy not believe in that way and heard.
_ Let's little sister will do the heating. One, two, three ... And thus followed with his preliminary exercises so risky to dive.
After 15 minutes of exercises. Fefsaid.
_ Well it's time to dive.
Again Sinddy closed her eyes to not see what would happen. Fefapproached the edge of Lake wear the body and jumped. During the jump gave his famous scream.
Sinddy could barely believe what way. He spent 10 seconds, 20 seconds and nothing Fefback to the surface. Sinddy began to despair and screamed for the sister.
_ Fef Fef You're alive?
When suddenly after 30 seconds Fefputs his head out of water and exclaims.
_ I am the best! Come little sister enjoy this adventure too.
Sinddy turn alerted the sister ...
_ Its crazy Fef or youquit from the lake now or you will turn to the moonlight of a dinnerhungry fish. Actually lake that was well populated by fishs.
_ Sinddy wait for a while, because now I want to beat my record time for diving.
_ Do not dothat stupid earthworm...
And before Sinddy complete the advise Fefalready gave its second and risky diving. 30 seconds passed and nothing of Fefup the surface.
Again Sinddy despaired when the almost 40 seconds without air Fefagain surfaced.
_ Uauuuuuuu! That was amazing. I hit my record. Uhhhuuuuu!
_ You will see when you get out of there. I will tell everything to dad. But suddenly Sinddy slipped and fell into the lake.
_ Help, help! She screamed desperate.
_ Come onlittle sister knew you would drop this spirit of adventure that is within you. Said Fefeeing her sister accidentally in water.
_ Let's go, let's go. Sinddy said.
_Not before I try to touch the bottom of the lake.
Exausted of terror Sinddy dive into the lake andtouched the syrup in the bottom of the lake unintentionally.Fefapplauded by the big sister done.
_ You are my pride Sinddy. Managed to touch the bottom of the lake at the first attempt while I tried to do the same three times and failed.
Sinddy scared forgot most of the existence of the lake becausefishes just wanted to get to the shore of the lake as soon as possible. If supported in a few things floating in the river bank and increased the margin insisting that her sister did the same.
Fefsolved out the same way that the sister but the rise in one of these things floating turned to her sister and said little whispering.
_ Psiuuuu! You are looking at where I am walking?
_ I know you're there in walking. Come out and enjoy that we are lucky to find something where support for leaving the lake.
_ That thing is a floatingfish sleeping. There is incredible. I am surfing in a fish. Said the intrepid Fef
_ What? Surfing in a fish?. Come soon beforethe fish await,idiot .
_ Not before fulfilling a promise.
_ Quickly girl, get out of there soon.
_ I will give her a kiss. And hardily gave a kiss and still did tickle in the back of the fish. Aside from a great display of tap that huge carpet of scales.
After a few minutes doing juggling on dormant traa, fish Fefleave the river to relieve sister.
Well we need not go into details about the return home, after all the road should be crossed again and become our heroes of the same danger when they came.
Arriving Feffelt at home with an air of the mission accomplishedwhile Sinddy tgo hurryto tell their father about her crazy sister adventure. But as alwaysher father who never heard her absurd stories, said:.
_ You should write a book of adventures Sinddy. I never heard about aso much creativity in one head. Too bad it's all fiction, because if it was true and you should have Fefsoul of cat survive for so many risks.Go home baby tosleep because tomorrow the day will be long.
Episode III - An Adventure in the Rain
A new day in the morning at earthwormsland and all the community is still encapsulated in their burrows in the earth, because it would not be prudent to be out of the earth in a day like that, but ...
_ Morning little sister! (Said Fefe excited)
_Not as good as it could be, after all it is raining knives.(Sinddy replied, dismayed)
_Is it raining? It is raining! Cool! Come on little sister, do not lose time. Let's surf a little bit. (Said Fefe with her adventurous spirit)
_ Are you crazy? You know what that means? Flood, rapids and a river near here full of fish waiting for their prey. (Said Sinddy to counteract the euphoria of her sister).
Poor Sinddy, she hardly knew that his words only excited further her adventurous sister.
_ Well, if you do not go, I will get my new bikini, and spin around. (Fefe said)
_ Not before first consulting daddy. (Said Sinddy already impatient)
_While you spend your time with Daddy, I will clear out things. What do you intend to take? (Said Fefconfident and ignoring the views of the sister)
_ You have no way even. OK, but we will keep close to home, right? (Said Sinddy already delivered the crazy idea of sister and real possibility of being once again ignored by his father as always)
By putting their heads out of the earth, both are faced with an incredible storm packed with ice cubes.
_ Wow little sister! If not enough to dampen the joy we have the skeleton in the back massage. (Fefe said referring to the possibility of being hit by ice cubes).
_ Get back inside inconsequential earthworm. Do not you see that will turn in an omelet.(Said Sinddy aggressively)
But as always Fefe ignored her sister and took the first leaf she found and start simulating a surf style over the current water.
_ Iuuuuuupiiiiiii! That was the time little sister! Ai ai ai ai ai ai and with the right to giant waves. (Fefe said referring to the current water with the sharp falls of ice that only brought more emotion to ride)
Sinddy had no choice. Or let her sister being killed in or help her. Once again she decided to follow her sister. Took the next leaf and followed the trail of tottery sister.
More to the current front made a sharp curve and both were thrown out of it falling on a sweet ground.
_ Wonderful little sister! We just need to improve experiments. (Said Fefe well accommodated in the hole that caused the fall in the ground)
_ Do not look now but little sister, by the characteristics of this land are an ant house.(Said Sinddy scared)
_ Ui, ui, ai, ai, ai. I received a few bites in syrup. Let's get out of here .... help! (Said Fefleaving behind a sister)
I do not need to say that stopping in that land caused them some painful throughout the body.
Still wailing with the sensation of burning caused by the ants bites. They decided to run for resuming the air near the river which was very full in the light of heavy rain. Shortly before, a large tree was struck by lightning and the impact was registered on the river by creating a kind of bridge linking one to the other side of the river. The brilliant mind of Fefe began to plan what to do to make that morning more exciting.
Little sister, I’ve got an idea! (Said Fefe to Sinddy)
_No, not again Fefe. You and your crazy ideas. Let me rest a little, please. Sinddy said, exhausted.
_ None of this, partner. We have a job to do and that other side of the river tells me that we will have great things to explore. (Said Fef
Do not thinking about ... What I did do pay for so many sins. (Complained Sinddy following the steps of her sister).
The rain continued strong and although the ice cubes have ceased to fall, the wind has become the next dangerous enemy of someone who wanted to cross a river just supported by a wet tree trunk.
_Sinddy Come, take this and go belly to the ground just before it stops raining! (Fefe said, little concerned about the rain or the wind)
_ If you do not kill yourself this time, I promise that I give you a hand to do that! (Said Sinddy)
The strong wind meant that one end of the trunk slip inside the water. For an unfortunate the side that sank in the river, making it impossible to turn back. They only have the chance to go forward.
_ Fefe, Fefe. (Screamed Sinddy desperate holding the small branch with the eyes closed)
_ Hey little sister. Stop blubber and release this branch and feel the ground a few inches from your rear.
In a relieved sigh Sinddy is likely to look down and realize she was safe on a small branch that rupture of the trunk with the wind, which rest on a soft mattress of dry old leaves, although a bit wet because the rain.
Sinddy was thinking it would be impossible to come back across the river due the tree trunk be inside the river while Fefe calmly retouch the "makeup" looking fixedly for a small puddle of water.
_ Do not be worried little sister. My mind is already shining in full operation thinking about our triumphant return home. But not before making a short "tour" around here. (Said Fefe totally unconcerned with the situation)
The rain ceased and the drops falling from the trees in combination with some rays of sunshine which soon would exchange that one wet day by a sunny day. The view was very pretty, but it seemed that only Fefe noted great visual effect of color reflecting the sun in the puddles of water.
Look to the horizon could note that amazing phenomenon that gives the rainbow.
_ Little sister, you know what does rainbow means? (Fefe asked her sister).
I do not know and I hate who knows. (Said Sinddy very nervous)
_ Yes, but how long will it take? Two days? (Said Sinddy)
Without note her sister had already ventured herself in the forest.
_ Fefe, Fefe. Where are you? (Screamed Sinddy in search of sister)
_ See that wonderful view little sister. (Fefe said pointing to a planting of roses)
Certainly, because of the storm their buttons were opened leaving their petals scattered all corners.
Involving a rose's petal on his body. (Fefe says to her sister)
_ Little sister found memories of my trip. I am in a parade of haute couture. Are you serious, I am not beautiful in this type of dress Italian. Check out this V-neckline.
_ It was just what I needed now, Fefe. You there with his vanity international and us here with an uncertain future. (Said Sinddy)
_ Well honey I think I'm ready for a triumphant return. Wait until those envious of the community of earthwormsland see me with this brand new and unique fashion's dress. Only travelers can enjoy such vanities. (Said the proud earthworm)
_ At least you outlined a point of sanity. Back home is all that I want. Time to go home. (Said Sinddy)
Surprisingly the river's water level dropped enough that the trunk rested on a part of the river bank that was almost dry. Without thinking Sinddy was in front anciosa followed by reaching the other side of the river.
Well , once again our adventurous friends got rid of the dangers of such adventures of earthearthworms.
Sinddy once again tried to explain to the father about her crazy sister. But infidel and busy as ever with so much work to do instead of giving attention to her even gave him a tough warning by the state she was in so much mud. Unlike made a great compliment to the visual of Fefe saying:
_ Daughter, you will become a star of Hollywood with this conceit the flower of the skin. I hope that one day I can give you the opportunity to know other places far from our humble community because you are the type of person who needs new airs. Said the father without knowing the adventures of Fef
