Snowy in the country of blossoming sky
Бульцев Лев Александрович.13 лет (6 класс). Snowy in the country of blossoming sky. LOW.
Snowy is a little polar bear cub. He lives in the northern Arctic with his family. Mummy bear, Daddy bear and Snowy can see ice and snow everywhere every day. They like swimming from ice floe to ice floe and digging holes in snow banks.
One day Snowy says, "I’m tired of this ice and snow. I’m going to live where I can see something quite different."
"But your home is here! Look!
The snowflakes are dancing in the air! They are so beautiful! Listen to the snow! It’s humming a very funny song, "scoosh-scoosh, scoosh-scoosh", his mother tells him.
"Nothing can stop me", answers Snowy. "I’m packing my things and ...
I’m going to find country of the blossoming sky. I will go with a penguin Smallwings.”
“Do you speak about the polar lights, dear?”, his father is really surprised, “but such country doesn't exist”.
The bear cub proudly sticks out his breast, “Leave these fairy tales for kids, Smallwings knows everything about the country of blossoming sky. We definitely will find it today.”
“But…”, the father tries to tell something…
“Good idea”, the mother suddenly says, “but don't forget to bring souvenirs for us”.
”Hurray!!!”, Snowy is very delighted and he goes to pack his things, without paying any attention to amused dad and laughing mum. Soon penguin Smallwings comes and friends begin their way. Sooner or later but they pass through a big snow field, their favorite hillock, diligently bypass human settlement , and at last they are on the ice bridge in the dark terrible cave.
“We are here”, whispers Smallwings with excitement, “there is the doorway for the country of blossoming sky at the end of this bridge.”
“Are you sure?”, asks frightened Snowy.
“My senior brother told me so. He is very clever. I believe him.”
“Go the first!”, bear cub and little penguin whisper together.
“No, you!”, shouts angrily Smallwings. That’s not because he is bad. No, he is very kind and good friend, but he is too scared now.
«Well, OK…”, Snowy sighs. The bear cub carefully goes on the ice bridge in this dark impenetrable cave. Suddenly, he notices light somewhere ahead. “This is it!”, he joyfully cries, “I see the door!”And little Snowy runs forward. He almost reaches the light but out of the box terrible roar appears and everything falls in darkness.
When darkness dissipates the bear cub sees a strange place. “Where am I?”, our small hero thinks, “This place looks like circus arena… Wait a minute! What is this dancing animal in the center of the arena? No, this is not an error! Absolutely precisely, this is a tiger, I saw the similar one in my textbook. The tiger is very big. It is a bit strange but its fur is white with black stripes, and over these stripes gold bracelets are dressed. And this tiger is dancing. He is holding two small fans in paws and carrying out very unusual for tiger movements. Lo and behold!”
His thoughts are interrupted with a derisive voice. “What?! Why don’t you clap, shout «bravo!»? Aren’t you surprised?” The tiger stops his dance and attentively looks at the Snowy. «Well, you are right. There is nothing here to be surprised – a usual dancing white tiger. Please, allow me to introduce myself - star spirit, sir Tigrovski.”
The bear cub removes quietly to the arena’s edge. He looks very frightened.
“Well-well, don't twitch, I am not going to attack you”, the tiger tells reconciliatory, “What for are you here? And by the way who are you?”
“My name is Snowy. I want to live in the country of blossoming sky”, the bear cub whispers.
“We don’t need you”, the tiger answers, “we already have bears – The Great Bear and The Little Bear. You know The Little Bear is very naughty. Though …”, abruptly sir Tigrovski hangs over Snowy as huge frightening shade. He starts talking in a very serious manner, «I’d like to help you with your wish but it is simply impossible. I will show you.»
The tiger waves his fan in a sharp-clawed paw, and darkness comes. «Open your eyes, you won't have other possibility to see such a thing!»
Snowy opens his eyes and finds himself in a rather unusual place. It is dark here even though there are stars everywhere. And there is a terrible black spot somewhere ahead.
“This is the huge black hole”, the tiger says, “It can destroy and kill almost everything and everybody. For us, star spirits, black holes doesn’t bring any harm. We use it as a doorways of our world, but for you, an ordinary bear, black holes are very dangerous.. …” Sir Tigrovski waves his fan again. They go back to the arena.
“Do you understand now?” - the tiger asks.
"Not very well", the bear cub admits, “but I decided not to live in the country of blossoming sky or world of star spirits. I didn’t saw snow anywhere. I thought I was fed up with it but now I see that world is too dark without snow. ”
“Snow? What is snow?”, now it’s tiger’s turn not to understand. Snowy begins to explain Tigrovski about snow. But he can’t do it well, really he is too young – after all he is only in the first class of northern school.
“Oh!, suddenly remembers little bear, “my friend Littlewings is waiting for me now, I have to go home immediately!”
“Ok”, sir Tigrovski artfully looks at him, “but I will come to see you soon and to learn what the snow is.” He smiles and waves his fan.
“Oh, how sleepy I am after this journey!”, the bear cub thinks opening his eyes. Snowy is very surprised to see that he is at home in his bed. His parents and penguin Smallwings sits near his bed.
“Wake up, wake up!”, the penguin cries. “After your fall from the bridge in the big snowdrift, I became very frightened and ran for your parents. We brought you home. You slept for three hours. How could you sleep for such a long time?! We almost found the country of the blossoming sky! We must go back to that cave and try again!”, Smallwings chatters.
Mum and dad swap worried glances. But they don't need to worry.
«No, we can't go”, Snowy answers, “soon we’ll have a guest. We should wait for him and show him our precious snow. ”
And very soon they will really hear loud knock at a door. Sir Tigrovski pledges a word.
