Long ago …

Prompt –

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

Finish the story begins with: “They followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods.”

They followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods. Finally they cornered a mother and calf. They were planning to kill the calf for its tender meat. The buffalo-cow guessed their intention and it felt such a great love for its calf that milk flowed out of its udders. The men chasing them also saw this and one of them licked it from the puddle below the buffalo-cow.

Other members also tasted the milk and with great effort succeeded in carrying of the buffalo-cow along with its calf to their tribal village.

5000 years forward their descendents are an important beast of burden and produce a large proportion of milk consumed in the world. They are also a major source of meat and leather and are crucial for the economy of many developing countries …… all of it because of a mother’s love.
