Soralene climbed the giant, sticky cobweb. Her butterfly-eared Yapillon, Spencer, hovered around to exhale a bunch of multicolored dust toward all the horse-sized spiders that crawled toward her. When Soralene reached an egg sac near the top corner of the cobweb, she grabbed a vine and swung back to the Health Center to cook the egg sac into a stew for Spencer. Soon, Spencer would be able to eat the egg sac and subsequently have his healing powers activated for her patient.
Lesson to Think About, based on this Drabble: Just as Soralene tries to climb the cobweb, avoiding all the dangers of the spiders, in order to reach the egg sac near the top of the web, we all have our own goals in life to reach, and dangers that crawl up to us to try and stop us. But just as Soralene had help from her pet to avoid the dangers, we also need to accept help from others when we objectively need it. And just as Soralene’s goal to heal her patient couldn’t be fulfilled unless Spencer ate the egg sac, we couldn’t achieve our goals to their fullest potential unless we have a genuine connection with others. This is not to say that we cannot achieve our goals alone—we totally can, depending on the goal. However, if we don’t care about friendship and maintaining a healthy relationship with the people around us, we will be pursuing our goals with a rather selfish intention, and the achievement of such goals will not have their optimal significance since no one would really care. Our goals should have both personal fulfillment, as well as a contributory component that would benefit others besides ourselves.

“Hold tight!” Shouted Soralene as she clutched her vine. “There’s a spikeball storm coming!”
The wind picked up, and their tree released a bunch of fist-sized spiky seeds. Soralene and Lexa clutched their vines and continued to climb their tree, dodging all the giant spiky seeds that rolled down the trunk and branches of their tree.
Lexa screamed. “Seriously?! We have a long way to go before we reach the probiotic blossoms at the top! My patient better not die before I get up there!”
Lesson to Think About, based on this Drabble: Just as Soralene and Lexa must overcome the dangers of falling spikeballs in order to reach their goals and help their patients, we must also overcome the dangers and hurdles that prevent us from achieving our goals, as well as overcome the challenges that prevent us from helping others.
