The rose

in In English por

The little kid was playing in the garden while his parents were finishing to move in the new house. He had that adventuresome spirit that all kids have, that feeling of freedom and that positive attitude of discovering a new place. His parents never had a house before with a yard and they never lived far away from the city. He was so excited to play outdoors. Quickly, that garden became his favourite place of the house. A fence enclosed the garden with a little door and it would open making a strange noise. He loved to open and close the door (kids have fun with anything) and, from there, to contamplate a mysterious road.

“—Where will this road end? —he asked himself.”

His mom already warned him several times not to leave the garden. But the curiosity of a kid is much bigger than any adult can imagine. Seguir Leyendo

The cricket that sings

in In English por

I want to talk this week about the cricket that sings. His name is Santiago, like the character in “The alchemist”.

I found Santiago one night in the bathroom of my home. I needed to pee and I went quickly to urinate. I couldn’t see anything. I was only thinking to pee. The first second… you can imagine the sensation when you are full… mmmmm so good!

But, after 2 seconds, I felt strange. Something was different. It was Santiago on the floor, singing, looking at me. I thought Santiago was a cockroach. -What the hell!!! What are you doing here!!!???. I asked him waiting for an answer and moving my body from fear. But he was more afraid than me and started to run to a safe place. Them, I couldn’t hear Santiago. It was silent in the bathroom. I cleaned my hands. There was only the sound of the water. I stayed quiet for one minute. Santiago was patient, in calm. After a while, he started to sing again. So clear. It is strange but Santiago was lost in a bathroom, maybe so far away from his home. Anything else. Only the bad smell and the cold of the white room. How did he arrive to that place? This could be like a big adventure for a human. Seguir Leyendo

The monster of the books

in In English por

The legend began in a dark and cold night at 5.00 am.

The guy was sleeping in his room. He was concentrated in his dream, provably, a beautiful dream. But he woke up with a soft noise. He turned on a little light close to his bed and looked around him. It was nobody, nothing. He didn’t see his roommate in his bed. His bed was empty. He heard the same soft noise again. It came of the kitchen. Silence.

After two minutes… the soft noise again. The guy was worried. He was thinking to go to the kitchen but he was scared. He covered his body with his blanket using it like a shield.

Every two minutes he could hear the same noise. But he couldn’t recognize it. Seguir Leyendo
