Something amiss

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.
