Mama deer Cutie was busy.
She had to do some baking.
That day nobody else was at home to help.
She baked five fruit cakes and a ribbon cake.
Those were for the village fair.
After baking she went to have a bath.
The deer family bathes in a pond near the house.
Cutie washed clothes and bathed.
She re-entered the house from the back door.
She had left it a little ajar.
Cutie glanced at the table after entering the house.
The cakes were there...but...
The beautiful ribbon cake she had made was missing.
Cutie stood still for a few seconds.
“What would have happened” she thought.
She wondered whether her son Chubby had come.
There was no sign of Chubby either.
