  24 The Shower and the Buckwheat

  A long time ago, there was a big field in a village. The Barely and wheat were planted in that field. The buckwheat was also in the field.

  The grains grew very well in summer with mild sunshine. “I am so beautiful. There is no comparison between me and barely or wheat. My flowers are as beautiful and white as those of apple trees!” The buckwheat boasted about herself. She paid no attention to any of the barely, wheat, trees or flowers of the riverside.

  Right at that moment, “Grrrrrr, Boom boom! Flash flash!” It thundered with a rumbling sound, the lightning flashed. “Pitter patter, pitter patter!” And it showered heavily. Heavy raindrops came down with frightening speed.

  “Oh, it‘s a shower!” “Lower your head, quickly!” Barely and wheat who were taking in the sun were astonished and shouted. Everyone lowered their heads, shut their buds and waited for the shower to pass by, but the buckwheat did not.

  “Hum, what a fuss! It’s only a shower.” Rather, she raised her head arrogantly. “Buckwheat, lower your head quickly.” Barely was surprised to see Buckwheat was raising her head and said.

  “Why do I have to lower my head?” “Look at that heavy rain. You will get wounds from that beating rain all over your body. Besides, if your eyes are struck by the lightning, you‘ll be blind forever. God is inside of the lightning. We cannot look at him directly.” Barely said impatiently.

  “Is he really in the lightning? Well, I will look at him directly!” Buckwheat leaned backwards much more arrogantly than before. ’Flash!‘ At that moment, a very big lightning flashed. It looked like the whole world was on fire. “Oh my God!” All the grains shouted simultaneously and closed their eyes.

  After a while, the shower stopped, and the sun shone gloriously. A beautiful rainbow appeared from the opposite side of the mountain. The grains slowly and carefully raised their heads after crouching themselves. They raised their moistly wet bodies and looked at the beautiful rainbow.

  “Wow, what a beautiful rainbow!” “Yes, you’re right. It is such a beautiful rainbow!” Rainbows after showers were always beautiful. Everyone felt cool and fresh, but buckwheat did not.

  “Boo-hoo!” She lowered her head and was sobbing at one side. Buckwheat did not lower her head, so she got a big scar on her face from the heavy rains. On top of that, because she lost her sight from the lightning, she could never look at a rainbow again.
