The boy opened a book and started to read the first page:
“An owl observed the sky when a termite that had lost his wings interrupted her:
-Follow me and you will be saved!
The owl became curious:
-From what will I be saved?
And then the termite gave her a revelation:
-I talked with the termites that are gnawing the pages ahead this book. They spoke about the big destruction.”)
