Spider and Insect

Once upon a time lived a spider in a cornfield. A big spider with a beautiful nest goes around between corn stems. It becomes fat by eating all the insects that trapped on its web. It really loved to live on that cornfield and plans to stay there forever.

One day, the spider catch a tiny insect on its web, and when this spider going to eat it, the insect said, “If you let me go, I will tell you one important thing that will save your life”. That spider stops for a moment and listen carefully. “You better go from this cornfield,” said this tiny insect, “Harvest time already here!”

The spider smiles and says, ”What this harvest time you talk about? I think you just make up a story”. But the tiny insects says, “Oh no, its true. The owner of this field will come soon to reap. All the corn stalk will be cut off and the corn will be gathered. You will be killed by a giant machine if you stay here.”

The spider answers, “I do not believe in the harvest time or giant machine that will cut off the corn. How you may prove it?” The tiny insect continues, “Look at those corns. Look how those corns were planted in ordered lines. That proves that this field was designed by somebody brilliant”.

The spider laugh and said, “This field grown by its own and has no relationship with a creator. Corns always grow like that”. The insect explain more, “Oh no. This field owned by an owner who plants it, the harvest time will be here soon.” The spider grinned and said, “I do not believe”, and then it eat that insect.

Few days later, the spider was laughing remembered the tiny insect’s story. He thinks, “Harvest. What a stupid idea. I already here all my life and no body is disturbing me. I already here when the plants just half meter tall from the ground, and will be here for the rest of my life, because there is nothing will changed on this field. Life is beautiful, and I will make it that way.”
The next day was a beautiful day on the cornfield. The sky was bright and there’s no wind. That noon, when the spider walks, he suddenly realizes there was a thick dust move on his way. It hears the sound of giant machine and told itself, “What is happening?”

The stair of life is full with wood shavings, but you will never realize it before you slipped down.
