The Arrogant Ants (Collection of World Fairy Tales from Spain)

In a forest outside the city of Madrid, live various animals. There are ants, rabbits, birds, cats, dragonflies, butterflies, and other animals.

One day, a great storm hit the forest. “Kraak, Kraak,” the sound of trees and branches broke in all directions. Many animals die because they cannot save themselves.

The storm lasted a day and a night. By morning, then the storm stopped leaving destruction everywhere.

For a moment, there didn’t seem to be living in the forest. Suddenly, from the ground, an ant appeared. The ant managed to survive the brunt of the storm by entering the ground.

Ants look around. Then, walk while checking the state of the forest. His steps stopped when he saw the cocoon lying on the ground.

“Hmm, how unpleasant it is to be a cocoon, confined and unable to go anywhere. If I can go anywhere I like,” mocked the ant to the cocoon. The cocoon is only silent.

A few days later, the ant passed a muddy and muddy road. He didn’t realize that the mud he stepped on could suck it.

“Oh, it’s hard to walk in a muddy place like this,” complained the ant. The longer, the ant’s body sinks deeper into the mud.

“Please … please!” Shouted the ant.

“Wow, it looks like you’re having a hard time, huh?”

Ants were surprised to hear that voice. He looked around to find the source of the sound. But, he only saw a butterfly fly over his head.

“Hey, I am the cocoon you used to mock. Now, I have become a butterfly. You know, I can fly wherever I like my wings. Meanwhile, look! Right now, you can’t walk in that mud, right? “You will be swallowed up by the mud in a minute,” said the butterfly.

Ants are silent ashamed. “Well, I realized. I’m sorry for making fun of you when you became a cocoon. Will you help me now?” ask for ants that are miserable.

Butterflies also think for a moment. “Okay, I’ll help you,” said the butterfly.

Butterflies then pull ants from the mud until they are safe. “Thank you, you saved me,” said the Ant.

“Never mind, we must help anyone who is in trouble, right? But, next time you do not like to mock the weakness of other animals. Every creature of God must have advantages and disadvantages,” said the butterfly advising ants.

The ant nodded in shame. Since then, ants and butterflies have become best friends.

The Moral Message from Semut Yang Sombong (Collection of World Fairy Tales from Spain) is Don’t like to be proud of yourself. Because we all have advantages and disadvantages. Be a good and helpful child. In addition, apologize if you have something wrong. Don’t repeat the same mistakes
