A boy, in a library, opened a book. In the middle of the book there was a little termite. The little creature became surprised and began to run. But the boy asked:
-Which personage are you?
The little termite stopped and said:
-I began to eat books there is little time. I still don’t understand the human language.
The boy didn’t get to interpret what he heard. He closed the book and said:
-I think I need to start by the beginning of the story! )
