The ant king looked around and after some thinking and reasoning he called for Benji and they both started the long walk back to the clearing where Benji lived.
Finally, at dawn, they reached the turtles’ nest, feet sore of walking. Benji was so tired that he almost forgot to thank The ant king for his help and walked straight into bed. The father turtle was so grateful that The ant king had helped little Benji to get out of the hole that he offered him a lift.
The ant king had decided that he wouldn`t walk anymore today, so a lift further down the path was a welcoming offer. The father turtle was going to a neighbor family for a visit anyways and The ant king could sit on his back.
All the turtles except Benji gathered and waved goodbye as The ant king rode slowly away sitting on the turtles back. The ant king was so tired of the adventured he had been through, and the slow rocking from side to side soon made him fall asleep.
The end (for now)
