Keeping me safe

The sky was a pale blue with white puffy clouds. I was with my mom running through the tall grass.

We had lived on the farm for a long time. The smell of the green grass was sweet with the fragrance of wild flowers. There were fields of wheat waving in the warm summer breeze, and a babbling brook rolled through the property. This was the most beautiful place in the world. I would run full speed then lay down on the cool grass and look at the sky.

Once she  passed by and I pulled myself to my feet and run like mad the other way. I would run circles around mom time after time. I would kick up my heels and snort to show her how fierce I could be. Mom would stomp her foot on the ground, and shake her head and start to chase me.

I remember one day as we ran through the tall grass mom stopped really fast and I ran into her. She pushed me back so I would not get hurt. She stomped her feet on the ground and when she moved away there lay a long snake that was ripped open by her stomps, and blood was all around it.

I stood on my back legs waving my feet in the air to attract someone. I ran very fast kicking up my feet, jumping around and snort. “No one noticed.” I had to do something and fast.

I stood on my hind legs waving my head from side to side. Once on the ground I stomped and stomped. The door flew open and out came two humans chasing after me. I led them to my mom in the pasture. she was not standing anymore. She laid still and was I so worried. I pranced around and around the pasture.

A human was putting cream on the bite then wrapping her leg with a white cloth. Mom laid there for a while then moved her legs, she sat up then came to her feet. I was so happy that ran back and forth so she could see me. Mom was led into the barn where she laid down on a bed of straw. I followed her and laid down beside her and fell fast asleep. When morning came mom was standing over me, keeping me safe.

All creatures love their moms, even us humans.

The end.
