That’s what a fairy tale I have composed. Stand out to the public.
Fyodor sat under the bed and cried bitter tears. They were so combustible that they burned neat, round holes in the floor. But Fedor did not pay any attention to this, because he was very offended!
All because yesterday he heard my mother, putting little Kirill in bed, said: If you do not fall asleep quickly, a woman will come and take you away! And you know what? Kirill obeyed! He was very afraid of baba. But in fact, babay would hardly have raised Kirill, because even the biggest babai are no more than a little pink finger in height!
The last straw was that today, Vera, Kirill’s sister, on the question of where the sweets from the buffet were gone, quietly shrugged her shoulders: Babay probably took it. Everyone knows that babai hate sweets! And in general, they are very educated, they will never take anything without demand.
Fyodor was so upset by all of this that he could not stand it; he ran under the bed, where now he burned small round holes in the floor with his burning tears. After all, he was a real Baba, which means he was always offended when he heard a lie.
Just at that time, Kirill’s naughty slippers ran away, and, of course, Kirill immediately got to look for him under the bed …
There was no slipper under the bed, but there was a tiny shaggy little man who was crying …
– Oh, the gnome! – Kirill exclaimed.
Fedor from surprise even forgot to be scared.
– Or are you brownie? – continued to ponder the boy.
Fyodor wanted to reply that he was a pure-blooded Babai, but then he remembered how mother scared Kirill.
-Why are you crying? – asked Kirill.
Fedor sobbed, he was very pleased that Kirill was so interested in him.
– I was upset because you were distraught: you can’t find sneakers again! – Fedor decided to lie.
In general, babai never lie. Although, by the way, they are never shown to people either!
– I am now. Now find sneakers! Please do not cry.
“Look in the toy box,” said Fyodor.
Kirill jumped on that leg, which was lucky with sneakers, to the box with toys. And Fedor thought for a second. On the one hand, he violated the main rule of all women: never to appear to people. But on the other hand, if he just disappeared now, Kirill would probably be upset. So, Fedor would have broken the second rule of all women: never upset people!
While Fyodor thought so, Kiryusha came back with two slippers.
– Get out from under the bed, let’s play! – asked the boy.
Fedor shook his head.
– Better get in here!
Kirill happily crawled under the bed. In addition to Fedor, there was a ball under the bed, last year’s gingerbread and a piece of candy …
They played a ball, made a candy paper out of paper, and then Kirill was a spy who carried out a secret mission: he had to deliver a valuable cargo (last year’s cake) right into the bin!
And then my mother called Kirill to have dinner.
– Mom is calling! – Kirill was upset. “But you will come tomorrow, right, dwarf?”
Here Fedor could not resist. After all, he, like all babayam, it was very hard to lie!
– I’m not a gnome!
– Who? Kiryusha whispered conspiratorially.
– Babay! – breathed Fedor.
Kirill was very surprised.
– But you must be scary, shaggy and very angry! And you are kind and very sweet …
– You see, we do not show up to people. It is not accepted. Here they are, that is, you … and figured out that we are terrible.
– Babai, and you will come tomorrow? It’s so interesting with you!
– I will come! – Fedor promised.
Kirill fled for dinner, and Babai Fedor walked into his hole, pleased that he had not violated one of the rules of all the women: he did not upset the person!
