Friday Story Bazaar ~ Tale Forty-Two


Wonderment

by

~~~~~~~~~

Ung sat on his haunches wondering…

One of his mates whacked him on the head and pointed at the waste in their cave, meaning “Get busy!”

As he gathered the bones and husks from their meals and carried them to the tribe’s pile, he wondered if people in the future would have as many mates as he had to have—four women to satisfy and get children with…

After he’d deposited the waste, he sat back on his haunches and wondered…

Another Whack!, from another mate, who pointed to the pile of meat that needed roasting…

Roasting finally done, Ung wandered out to the Magic Tree grove just as the Sun approached the horizon…

He wondered if people in the future would live in structures made from the wood of trees like these and, as he sat there on his haunches watching the Sun slowly going down, another mate came up behind him and gave him a Whack!, pointing to the water jugs needing to be filled at the river…

After the water was in the cave, Ung wandered out to look at the stars and wonder if there were other people somewhere out in those villages of lights spangling above him…

His fourth mate snuck up and bashed his head with a rock—clear signal that the women wanted him in the cave helping them make babies…

Ung wondered if, when he joined his ancestors in Spirit Realm, he would still, always, have to have his wonderings whacked away………

    Somehow I feel a connection to Ung – WHACK – except for the four mates of course 😄

      :-) — Well, this author also feels connected to Ung and; also, can’t conceive of four mates…

      Yet, I wrote a story with a man who has four mates—ah… the wonderment of Writing :-)
