[REVISE] Blue B and The Old Man

It’s been weeks Blue B climbing down the mountain and this morning, she arrives at beautiful seashore with sandy coast, clear blue water and smoth waves in one part but the other one is… Is that mud? Blue B does not sure herself.

Moreover, in the distance there something catching  her eyes. It is an Old Man who busying himself to plant some trees in mud area when Blue B approaching him.

‘Hi, hello, may I know what are you doing?’ Asked Blue B.
‘Oh, hi… Hello, this?’ Replied The Old Man pointing at what he has done.

Blue B nodded.

‘I’m planting mangroves, these trees will protect this place from huge waves and also, it’d be a home for many creatures, come closer I’ll show you.’ Said The Old Man.

‘Oh really? Sure if you don’t mine Thank you.’

Blue B took the offer and she very surprise to see so many creatures she never even had seen it before.

There are something like giant clamp, she was not sure herself. Many kind of crabs, there also something fish-like but it has tiny feet and many more surprising creatures who catch Blue B’s eyes!

‘Interesting doesn’t it?’ Said the Old Man.

Blue B just nodded in agreement since she can not find the word to express it.

‘May I help you? To plant these mangroves.’ Asked Blue B.

‘Wah really? You don’t mind? Well, here I’ll show you.’ Replied The Old Man cheerfuly.

Then both of them start planting mangroves together  and Blue B    exchanging her stories, including her previous met with The Crying Earth.

‘Not all the people in the world like them, those who don’t care with the only place they’re living at,’ said the Old Man toward Blue B’s judgement to the human.

‘Do you see me? I’m really concern with my surrounding. I can’t stand to see my place turn bad and let the creatures extinct, so I try my best to do what I can. The more you make journey, you will see a lot of thing you never imagine and experiences those that can help to built yourself to be better and sensitive person about our only one and already dying planet.’ He went on saying.

Yeah, that could not be more true, if only there are more people like the Old Man then the Earth will never cry, Mr. Tree would never upset thought Silver Doe as she leaving the place and in her fond hope that she can makes another visit one day, to see her growing mangroves she planted.

The sun sets lower and lower as if it drowning into the golden sea, Silver Doe took one last glance, with hope in her mind that the mangroves will grow well so that it can protect the place and the creatures who live there well too.

[REVISE] Blue B and The River

Summer has come, it is pretty nice weather although a bit too hot and humid. But it is okay, at least not severe like winter, cold and freezing! Blue B looks around to find out where she is, aah… she arrives a little away from residential area, currently she stands at the bridge crossing a wide river. The River’s water is not clear instead dirty and brown also smelly?

‘Hi who’re you? I never know you,’

There sudden voice causing Blue B who look at The River closely jump to her feet.

‘Oh, hi.. how are you? Ermmm this is my first time here, nice to meet you, my name is Blue Butterfly, simply call me Blue b then okay.’ Said Blue B.

Blue B walking down from the bridge to the river bank near by to have a talk with the River. Since many question already trains in her head.

‘So, what’s bring you here?’ Asked the River.

Blue B shook her head, ‘nothing, I mean I don’t know. I just walking around and arrive here, anyway you look great-‘

‘Before,’ interjected the River to make correction..

Despite everything actually this is a great river. It is a huge river with uncountable creature live in, supposedly. But with how he looks, Blue B doubt if there any creature can survive.

‘Ah… yah, before I supposed. But what happen with you?’

 

‘You see there?’ Asked The River pointing up to the residential area not too far ahead.

Silver Doe nodded.

‘The human up there who has done these mess. That area growing rapidly without proper plan. They don’t know how to dispose their trash and when they’re coming to the dead-end, they will throw away everything on me as if I’m their never-ending rubbish bin. Some of them even thrown mattress bed.’

‘Mattress bed?’ repeat Silver Doe surprisingly, how come they throwing away that such a thing.

‘Unbelievable right? And you know what, when rain comes, the water from river head brings the soil with them, that’s why my water becomes like this. All the human did, they messed up everything. Even the only place they live at. If only they ever think when the earth collapse they have no place to live. But they don’t, do they? Nowdays, I take it easy too, if I’m overload
I just flooding my water.’

‘What about them?’ Asked Silver Doe.

‘They never learn though,’ The River shrugged.

Another encounters, another heartbreaking The Earth stories, another experiences too.
Yeah, many human do not care with their environment. They should start paying much attention on it or when they realize is already too late to regret it.

Blue B and the Salmon

One day, it just one and another day in her journey.  It was when she reached at the beautiful greenery at the down stream. Which mesmerizing her was the view next to her. There are hundreds or maybe thousands of salmon heading to the up-stream.

Wait, up-stream? To the water not ocean? Yes they are and that the reason Blue B so amaze, for the view was quite strange.

They are rushed to the up-stream for what? And surely they are swim against the stream. Moreover, as long as she knows that salmon is living in the ocean. How come they are moving up to the river?

Many questions train in her head. And she can not help but approaching The Salmon who takes rest near by and asking.

“Hi, how are you?”

“Hi, how are you, ermmm… Do I know you?” To the Salmon’s surprise that somebody approach her.

“Oh yes, my name is Blue Butterfly, usually people call me Blue B, I just curious with all you guys doing.” Replied Blue B.

“We’re all going back home.”  The Salmon said.

“Going back home?” Repeat Blue B.

The Salmon nodded.

Leaving Blue B in confusion stage, more, the Salmon should live in the ocean, why are they had to go to up-stream? And to the up-stream? Swimming against the wave?

“Yeah, we’re all going back home to where we were had born. It’s breeding season.” Explained The Salmon.

“I think you’re live in the ocean.”

“Eh, yes we are. Right we were born, we’re travel from the upper to the down stream and to the ocean but once we reach our age, we’re back again to our birthplace during breeding season.”

Blue B nodding while listened to the Salmon’s explanation.

“Then once breeding season is over, you guys back to the ocean again?” asked Blue B.

The Salmon shook her head and with bitter voice but surprisingly there proud inside, she answered,

“No, never, we’re all never had a chance to come back to the ocean as well as some of us who never reach up-stream.”

“Ahh… I see so you stay there taking care your kids?” said Blue B.

Again, The Salmon shook her head,

“We never see our kids either, actually neither of us had ever see our parents.”

Blue B gasped, “what do’u means by saying never knew your parents?”

The Salmon smile weakly and in a low voice she said,

“we’re all die after spawning. We’re too exhausted by our travel and lying eggs is not easy either. But we proud of it, the journey we made was worth enough, when we’re finally passing the new life to the new generation. It would be them who continue our life. We will live through them. Then the new generation will carry on the mission to next generation. That’s how we survive and keep alive. Don’t you think it’s cool? We’re wonder and hoping that the next life will be better and the offspring also will proud due to the chance of life we give to them. We’re all living in our own memory.”

Due to her shock, Blue B did not replay anything. She just thinking about the life The Salmon have been through. What a cruel destiny. She can not help but praising the effort and sacrifice The Salmon carry on her shoulders to keep their generation alive.

That day, another lesson for Blue B, sometimes the destiny is cruel enough to be feeling but there a great lesson behind it and of course it makes Blue B to appreciate her life more.
