July 23, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story to show what it is to protect nature around us. It can be set in any era or told in any genre. You can fictionalize a true story or completely make it up. Go where the prompt leads!
When I was a little girl, my grandfather told me, “Jen, remember there’s a spirit within everything,” he stretched his wrinkled fingers toward the mountains. “Even the grass and the trees got spirits, so be kind toward them. They will never fail you.”
Because grandpa was my favorite, I listened and treated everything with care.
It was during my teens when I got lost in the forest with my sister. I heard a soft voice “this way.”
When we were out, I said “thank you” and smiled to my sister. “Good thing the voice guided us huh?”

Right? My thought exactly. It’s the same as the flowers we grew in the garden when we’re kind to it they bloom extra beautiful.
Very true! Be kind and you’ll receive kindness, no matter if are humans, plants or animals…actually sometimes matters if are humans….don’t have too much expectations from them 😖
True. It’s impossible not to have any expectations from another human. 😔
I know…but just because you consider them “humans” which some are really not…😣
Wah, don’t remind me please 😣 because I hate how right you are.
No choice, we need to survive between them…unless they’ll find a faster way for space travel 🤪
Love how in-sync we are (my husband too) about this view 😄
At leas we’re looking forward to it 🤪🤪
