A long winter ended, and the temperature warmed up. Animals living in the forest stopped their hibernation and left their dens to look for food. Modi's mother instructed him to search for food in the forest. Then, Modi entered the deep forest alone and embarked on his journey for food.
In the vicinity of his residence, there was a river. Little monkey Modi found a peach tree covered in fresh peaches over there. Modi was so happy, "These peaches are big and round, my mother and I can have a good meal tonight!" he exclaimed. After that, the little monkey swiftly climbed the tree and picked some big peaches.
The little monkey staggered, losing his balance, while he held some big peaches with both arms.
Not far away from the tree, he saw a cornfield. Suddenly, he dropped the big peaches from his hands. He happily ran into the cornfield, "This corn is delicious and sweet, my mother and I can have a good meal tonight!" he exclaimed. After that, he promptly collected some corncobs, plodding under their weight.
It was getting dark. The corncobs in his hands were getting heavier and heavier. When he was walking back to the river where he started his journey, the little monkey was so tired. Carelessly, he stumbled. Then, the corncobs in his hands fell into the river and floated away. Modi watched, but he could not do anything. Then, he went home with nothing.
Back home, Modi described what happened that day to his mother. His mother patiently listened to Modi's description. " If you can stick to your original thought, bringing some peaches home for supper instead of always changing your ideas, you would not have ended up with nothing, right?" mother said considerately.
Modi thought for a while, and nodded. He lay in his mother's arms and looked forward to searching for food tomorrow. After a while, he fell asleep.
Good night and sweet dreams!
