02 Aug When they can’t stand to see your shining light.
Once upon a time, there was a serpent that was persecuting a firefly. The poor firefly fled from the ferocious predator, using all the energy created by fear to speed him along.
The serpent, however, never considered giving up his pursuit, so he chased the poor firefly run away one day, and again for the second day.
The ordeal continued, until the third day.
Without the strength to continue, the lighting bug stopped and asked the Serpent, “May I ask you three questions?”
The Serpent said with a haughty tone, “I’m not used to answering anyone, but since I am going to devour you, you can ask me anything”.
Firefly: “Am I part of your food chain?”
“No” answered the Serpent
Firefly:“Did I hurt you or provoke you in any way?” asked the firefly.
“No” repeated the serpent.
Firefly: “So, why do you want to devour me?”
“Well”, said the Serpent, “because I can’t stand to see your shining light.”
