The room was quiet but the atmosphere was excited. The Cookie family were about to vote on where to go this Sunday. There was an invitation -
You are invited to attend the grand opening of HAPPY HAPPY Ice Cream Factory. Come this Sunday at 10am to receive a
HAPPY HAPPY Ice Cream Factory
Of course, they voted for the proposal.
Though it was stormy on Sunday, the Cookie family went jubilantly. When they arrived, they marvelled at the colossal building before them.
The manager greeted them and lead them onto the tour. On the way, two
brothers were distracted by some noises down the corridor and wandered into a room with windows overseeing the factory floor.
There were a lot of machines in the production hall. They also saw their friends, Strawberry and Mango, being held to the side by workers.
“What are they doing?"
“Look at the production chart on the wall.” said Vanilla, “It shows that they will crush us and mix the crumbs with ice cream.”
They were very, very frightened. They heard Strawberry protested to the workers, “Leave us alone!”. But
they just said that as soon as the ice cream was ready, they would start the crushing process. “There are more cookies coming.” they boasted.
The brothers wanted to warn their parents but they were already at the entrance, unaware of the a wicked plan that was in motion.
“Mummy, Daddy! Don’t believe in the manager. They want to kill us! We must leave now!” The brothers shouted, but their parents couldn’t hear them as it was very noisy.
“Friends, I have a treat for you behind these doors. Please enter with
me.” said the manager.
As soon as they entered, they were grabbed and shoved to the side where they joined Strawberry and Mango. When they saw the production chart on the wall, they immediately realised the danger.
“Take the honour to be part of Cookie-O-Cream, our latest flavour. Haha!"
The manager laughed delightedly, “But where are the two little ones?”
Where were they?
They had followed the factory map to the main switch room. They stacked one on top of another and reached the main power switch.
Flick! They switched off the power.
The machines stopped immediately and the
lights were out. There was total darkness.
With night-vision glasses they had found in the main switch room, the brothers entered the production hall and lead everyone out to take refuge in the guard house. Though soaked, everyone was glad to be saved.
As the machines had been stopped
abruptly, stresses built up inside eventually ripped them apart. Then lightening struck the building causing an explosion that blasted it to pieces.
The Cookie family waited until the storm was over and went home. After drying themselves, they had a meeting.
“We thank Chocolate and Vanilla for the bravery
and wisdom that had saved us.” said father Cookie.
After a round of applause, he continued, “We have learned not to trust any offer that makes us greedy. We have to be content with what we have and do not take what we do not deserve.”
