Just What Is a 'Minja' Anyway?

in art •  9 months ago

Well. Two elephants were heading home, back to the ridge after a good day of solid gluttony. They had pulled up a couple of smaller trees for the good stuff, upset several ant hills along the way, though, bless them, they did try so very hard to walk softly. And they had eaten more grass than they had eaten yesterday, and that day more than the last, and even that day more than the one before it. It wasn’t a thing of pride, or even of hunger.

The grass had a lovely sour edge to it. But it was ever so subtle, this sour. It tickled and pulled the saliva out of their cheeks in the most pleasant way, but it was quite gone in two or three chews, the sourness, and it was rather quickly disappointing, rather quickly missed.

So they had to take a fresh bite of grass, and then another, and another, to keep sucking on that sour. In the same way and for nearly the same reason one might go through a few packets of potato chips, the two elephants had eaten most of a mile of grass and a few trees.

It had been a devil scorcher of a day, one of those afternoons where even elephants sweat it out. Agnes was just saying this when she stepped on something with her big elephant feet. “Just a minute, Mildred, I think I just squished something,” she said, rolling her eyes because this sort of thing inconvenienced her fairly often. She turned her foot out and said to Mildred, “Could you have a look and tell me what it is?”

“Certainly,” said Mildred. Then it happened slowly, because elephants are very large things, and things happen slowly with very large things. Mildred bent over a little, and then she turned her head, and by and by the underside of Agnes’s foot came into view, and with it the thing she had squished. Then Mildred’s fleshy mouth went absolutely slack. Her jaw took its time to drop, and then her eyes, slow as sunset but with considerable alarm flew wide open.

Then she went as pale as pachyderms could go. “What is it, Mildred?” asked Agnes. “Tell me, what is it?”

Mildred almost said something, then she sort of stammered and sputtered it, then she said it. She then ran off, leaving Agnes there with her foot still raised. “A what?” muttered Agnes.

As Agnes stood there with a puzzled little frown, watching Mildred grow smaller and smaller in the vast savanna, the little mouse ninjas crept up closer and closer and closer.

Oh, Agnes was in a lot of trouble now.

Omg what happens to Agnes????
At first I thought you were talking about me... Because I just ate two lunches like a gigantor elephant would do lol. I was like "how did he know?"

·

But... but.. you're so tiny, @nomadicsoul! Like, elephant two lunch fun size! hehe
I don't know what happened to Agnes. But you should never squish a minja. Whatever happened, the elephants have never forgotten; it's why they're so afraid of mice.

·
·

HAHAHAHA the elephants have never forgotten! Never squish a minja. Will remember that. I enjoyed this tale very much, it left a good tickle ;)

·
·

What I meant is, I just ATE two lunches like a gigantor elephant would do. You cliff hanged me with Agnes...😞 haha by the way, I love that wires...minja. Your lil' ninjas are so cute! Until they attack hehe

·
·
·

I know what you meant ;) I was wondering how you did it hehe.
You don't like cliff hangers? I love cliff hangers! Even great actors like Sylvester Stallone love cliff hangers! Why... I think... there just might be... a movie.

I'm glad you like the minjas :)

·

Two elephants are delicious with a side of potato fries.

·
·

Hahaha need lots of ketchup with that order.

·

@oneminja, I so much love the suspense. Can't wait to read what happens to Agnes. Lol. This is lovely

·

@ oneminja I so much love the suspense. Can't wait to read what happens to Agnes. This is lovely

·

AHA, yes! Perfectly described.

🤣🤣🤣
Good story... I like it very much....bdw how are you creating those images???

·

I'm glad you like it :) I'm using Sculptris which is a free software from the makers of Zbrush, both are 3D sculpting software

Whew! We were quite sure, while reading the story, that Agnes had stepped on a, gulp, banana.

We're sorry that she's in such a pickle with minjas, but are quite relieved that one of our own kind didn't get flattened like a pancake.

Bravo! Adorable and disturbing at the same time. Still want to cuddle one, though I fear the MTD...Minja Transmitted Disease. Maybe you'll write in some sort of "protection" spell... ;)

·

HAHAHA MTD.. Dang, you went there :) Or maybe put one in a condom? :D

·
·

That be so weird wrapping them up...but if you ever start selling them- you've got your packaging all set! ;) But an unrolled one might make a cute hat off to the side like a little beret...you can call it a "condet"...lol....Wait did we just create a marketing concept and a mascot for safe sex!??! We are so doing our part to make this world a better place. ;) LMAO

27750178_1413657615409324_1281194368770165780_n.jpg

·

Well, it's a little different that drawing. It's called modelling, like making with clay, not with a pencil. But yes, you can make a human also :)

But how did the little fella grow a penis behind the head?

·

GMO MSGs :) But, you can never have enough penises.

Me I thought it was a hot dog. Honest mistake.

minja is a midget ninja (mini ninja). Minjas are extremely small, fast and very dangerous. Santa Claus is a ninja and so are his elfs. It has however been debated whether the elfs are defined as minjas or not

·

hehehe nice imagination there :)

Very pleasant sir @oneminja

Why thank you :)

Keep up the good work. :)

I intend to, @viralfood :)
