The Rabbit and the Chipmunk.

It has been a long time since Ashu told a story for me. Remember the one with the wolf? That was two years ago and the Ashu-almost 5.0-version is a lean, mean story machine. Heres the one she told me last night before her bed time. This time entirely in English.

There were two chipmunks living in a tree house. They both went to visit another city. Then a rabbit started living in the house. The chipmunks came back and saw the rabbit and said, "Its our house". But the rabbit said, "its my house"! They both kept on saying the same thing. Then a girl came there with a knife and killed one of the chipmunks!! (No. there was no warning for me either!!) She did nt do anything to the rabbit because he was her friend. One day, the rabbit and the girl were sleeping. The chipmunk planned something and went to their house. He saw two small bunnies. He killed one. So the girl started sleeping in the dead bunnies cot after that! (don't ask!) One day the rabbit wanted to go to the market. But the girl said no. So he went when she was sleeping. She got up and saw there was no rabbit. So she left the house and went to another country. The rabbit came home and saw that the girl was not there. So he went to a shop and snatched all the food and stored it in the house. There was no food for anyone else in that city. Then he caught a plane and went to another country. Now the girl came back to the house and saw the rabbit was not there. So she went on a plane to London. But the rabbit was not in London. He was in South Africa! So she went there and killed the rabbit. Now she had two houses. (huh?) She came back to rabbits house and gave all the food back to the shop. Took all the nuts from the shop and went to see the chipmunk and gave him all the nuts. She saw the bunny there. But he was not a clever bunny. So she taught him this and taught him that. Then she took him to her house and they lived happily ever after.

The End.

If I add some choice swear words here and there, you think may be I can send this story to Tarantino?

I was speechless. I did nt expect this from a child with whom I did nt use the word death until very recently. She has never watched any non-kiddy movies. And a child who cried watching one scene in the Bean movie and swore she never want to hear or watch Harry Potter ever again as soon as she saw Hagrid!!!!! Though I ve got to give it to her for the 100% originality, I guess! ;)

Disturbed to read about killing twice in a five year old's story....

neetu said...

AWESOME!!!! yes it is definitely tonrantino material...another one in making it seems. :) I had to delurk for this too..:)

B o o said...

Ambulis Amma - May be shes a future QT! ;)

Choxman - I did nt know whether to be impressed or scared! ;)

Niv - Techinically still a 4 year old! ;) actually, i am not disturbed because "killing" is a new word she learnt and she was just practicing it. couple of days back, we caught a few scenes of harry potter on TV and she asked where harrys parents were and i told her they were killed by voldemort. i think thats what caught her fancy. So for all we know, her story might have been about "kissing" instead of "killing" if we had watched a different scene! :))

Neetu - :)

Sundar Narayanan said...

have you been playing nasty video games while Ashu watched..

too much grand theft auto type thing?

this is actually scary.

funny but very scary.

mayG said...

WOAH! Whats with all the killing :D very imaginative though!
Mahnoor's recent fascination is with policemen who would take anybody and everybody to jail if they did anything wrong. Wrong ofcourse includes mama not letting her eat chocol or watching dora forever! Bah!

Hema said...

WOW...Awesome story.
Well...We used read scary ...err...fairy tales, now our children are telling them :)
Had to delurk after a long time for this:)

GettingThereNow said...

LOL!! Yep - I think Tarantino would be eternally grateful to you (or Ashu) for the excellent thriller that he makes out of this :P That girl has some imagination, huh?!

Shobana said...

Wow! What imagination! She is gonna give the hollywood writer's a very good run for their money.

The Print Lover said...

"oru peiyya mayam adhula oru kuyy " - ROFL. what movie is this?

Anonymous said...

I think this is the bestest story in all of your blogs - with some PG for me.

Bubble Catcher said...

Wild,wild and very gory imagination!
But like you said, she is probably just trying hard to use a new word she has picked up in her stories and I am sure once she gets a hang of the word, she will just move on to not so gory stories.

Usha said...

Still rolling on the floor with tears down my cheeks laughing my head off! What to you guys watch in the idiot box at nights (thinking she is asleep!)?? New word learnt...shocks mommy...so why not use it liberally!

Broom said...

omg! That is one dark tale. I loved it, but I'm a little disturbed by the fact that it came from a 5 year old! :)

Madura said...

Quite a story indeed! And my goodness to think that she actually goes back to give the nuts to the chipmunk ... I think she is quite a philosopher too!
