⌗AtoZ challenge, April 5th 2019, letter E

Here is my contribution to the A to Z Challenge of April 2019.
This is the first time I am participating in this challenge, so we'll see if I have the stamina to complete the whole month !
I am also, very ambitiously, writing for the April NaNoWrite ! So the challenge is twofold !!

Hang on to your horse and enjoy the ride. And good luck to all my fellow participants.


I used to read a story to my second daughter Emma, and then to my son Paul. It was about a young beaver who lives on an island in the middle of a lake. He is very lonely, so he talks to himself and sings. One day, he hears a voice answering him. He is very excited that he has found a new friend. He swims to the shore and goes around the lake, calling along the way. Everytime he calls out, his new friend answers him, so he continues, to catch up with him, but he never does.
While he is going round the lake, he meets an old beaver. He explains that he is lonely and has found a friend in the caller : now here is looking for him. He asks the old beaver if he has seen anyone. Then the old-timer, having understood, explains to the young beaver about the echo and that his new friend does not exist. Our hero is very disappointed and sad. But the old beaver says that it doesn't matter because he's not alone anymore, he has made a new friend, him.
