This whole thing reminds me of that silly story about what happens when you give a mouse a cookie. One thing leads to another and pretty soon Freddie had enlisted us for another adventure and we were climbing up a narrow shaft just beyond the cave pool. I felt cob webs brush my cheeks and I began to worry some critter would climb up my nose while my hands were occupied with just holding on. The walls were damp and slippery but as we continued to climb I felt fresh air in my face and I got all excited. My arms and legs were starting to ache and my hands felt like raw meat from gripping the walls when we hit a landing. That’s when I heard a girl screaming! “Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh!” Was all I could think! I really hate adventures now and it looks like there’s no other way out but towards the screaming. “Jordan” Freddie whispered, “There’s a girl in real trouble up ahead! We’ve got to rescue her!” “No we don’t Freddie!” I whined. “We might be outnumbered and if we got killed how could we help her anyway?! Let’s go back and get your giant friend to come back with us. He’s so big whoever is there would just freak out and run away!” But the more I protested the further away Freddie got and I had to struggle to keep up with him.
That was two years ago and it turned out that girl was having a baby. We’d lost our bearings and couldn’t find our way back so the couple let us stay with them and we got to be like family with them and their son. Then the weirdest thing happened. A large group from another country knocked on our door and came with presents for our family’s son. I think they said they were astronomers and the stars told them this boy was the great new king sent by God. I thought that was weird. He was just a regular kid. I liked him and all but a king? No way!
That night Joe and Mar rushed around gathering all the supplies they could hold and took Jesus from his crib. “Come with us guys”, Urged Joe “An angel just told me if we don’t leave now we’ll all be murdered by the king.” Now this was too out there for me. “No thanks. We appreciate all your hospitality and all but we’ll stay if you don’t mind.”
Bad move. Before the sun rose I woke up to the sounds of screaming and the door breaking in front of our faces. Men with clubs and swords began shouting for the whereabouts of Jesus and his folks and pummeled us all over. Next thing I knew I woke up in pitch darkness. Freddie was groaning then there was absolute silence. No breathing except from me. Oh God, no! “Freddie talk to me! Please don’t leave me!” That’s when I heard unbelievable laughter. It was Freddie coming from far away. And then he arrived with a piercing light and beside him stood the giant from the cave.
