Short story alert:
Once upon a time there was an Aardwolf named Wonder. Wonder
had a son named Curiosity. Curiosity was cute with a big bushy tail! Curiosity
wanted his father to teach him how to hunt for termites to eat. So, when the
darkness came Wonder took his son to the open prairies in the bushlands to
begin their hunt for termites to eat. Wonder stuck his tongue out and begin to
lick the sandy areas for termites. He showed his son how and where to lick
places to find the termites to eat. If they couldn’t find termites to eat, they
would eat other insects. Wonder and Curiosity found a lot of termites to eat on
their first hunt for food together. They ate so many termites that their bellies were so full. Curiosity
was tired and ready to go back to their burrow to rest up for their next big hunt for food
together. So, Wonder led the two of them back to their burrow. Wonder was so
happy and proud that he got to teach his son how to hunt for food. Once they
arrived back to their burrow, they fell quickly asleep. THE END!
