GAUCHE by Marither

In Antarctica, the male penguins hatched their eggs, while the female penguins looked for food. One day, there was a male penguin named Gauche hatching his eggs. The mother penguin was lost while looking for food in the ocean. While Gauche was hatching, a golden penguin came. Gauche was astounded because of her color. The golden penguin helped him and gave him food for the season, then she left without a reason.

After a while, Gauche met a silver penguin. He was astonished of her color and impressed with her skill in catching fish. He was supplied with fish for the whole season, then again she left without a reason.

The next season, a gentoo penguin arrived without anything. She was so sad because she couldn’t catch a fish, for she was still a tyro. Gauche taught her how. He told her all the techniques that he learned from the golden and silver penguins. The gentoo penguin admired him for that. She felt privileged that Gauche had told her everything. She would love to stay more to learn but the golden & silver penguins arrived. His attention focused on the 2 penguins.He was tactless to tell them everything about the gentoo penguin, even the most delicate parts that made the gentoo penguin lost her confidence about herself. He was fond of telling the other penguins about the gentoo penguin. They were laughing and happy talking about the gentoo penguin, while she suffered emotionally and psychologically. Gentoo penguin already had the skill in catching fish, but the traumatic incident made her weak & dying.
