‘Once you are in Aalesia, you can gather enough cheese to pay Maxi to fly your family to Aalesia.’
‘What if Aalesia is not as rosy as it seems. There could be dangerous creatures lurking around and they can eat me up.’
‘Now, now, Mynee, I know you are a brave and clever mouse.’ Sier said that and looked at Mynee’s chopped off tail. ‘You can figure out how to escape those dangerous creatures’.
‘Good friend, what if …’
Sier interrupted Mynee and said, ‘Listen, if something is important to you, you will find a way. If not you’ll find an excuse. Make progress or make excuses.’
Mynee Mouse thanked Sier for his advice. The next few months the mouse worked hard to gather that extra cheese for its flight. Mynee exchanged the cheese for a few succulent, freshly dead worms and took those worms to Maxi. Maxi gladly obliged to take Mynee to Aalesia. Off went the little mouse to Aalesia after it bade goodbye to its family.
