Evolution – a tiny tale

In a very disturbing turn of events, several trees all over the world surprised humans with their newfound ability to move! It has been reported that several trees all over the world uprooted themselves and started moving forward haphazardly, leaving a trail of mass destruction in their wake. Scientists are quite baffled by this new development. We can only hope that all of the trees around us don’t catch this weird ability. The destruction would be unprecedented! Many experts believe this sudden evolutionary trend of trees to be Nature’s way of avenging years of abuse at the hands of humanity.

This post was written in response to the Friday Fictioneers photo prompt hosted by the lovely Rochelle. The Friday Fictioneers challenge is to write a complete story – beginning, middle and end in 100 words or less, based on the given photo prompt. A huge thanks to Rochelle for hosting this challenge.

Let’s hope that we don’t keep pushing Nature so much to the extent that she feels a retaliation is in order. But then again, there are many who believe that the coronavirus might be Nature’s way of avenging herself. Let us do our part, no matter how small it may seem, to save Nature and her precious resources. Even a small step can go a long way!

For the visually challenged readers, the picture shows several uprooted trees in front of a building. The entire appears to have been cordoned off.

  1. Imagine just walking along and the tree behind you catches your eye as it seems closer to you than before. You look around and it stops moving. But then you continue on your journey and so does the tree. It sounds quite weird and freaky. If it had always happened, it would be our normal, but if it just suddenly started happening, it would scare a lot of people. I wonder what kind of lives the trees would live if they could move.

    1. Oh yes. THAT would be quite creepy indeed. And it would scare the living daylights out of anyone. Imagine if it were to grip you and swing you round and round, high up in the air!
      shudders involuntarily at the very thought
      I wonder how their lives would have turned out if they had the ability to move!

    1. Very true, my dear. There’s only so much she can take. There will come a point when she will be forced to retaliate if things don’t change anytime soon. I hope it doesn’t come to that. Thanks a lot, my dear.

  3. To be honest, I would completely understand if this happened in real life. Poor mother nature has been defenceless to our abuse for years. So long as the trees didn’t attack people and only destroyed factories and un-environmentally friendly mass companies, I may even be rooting for them!
