Cornelia Păun Heinzel : „Cotylosauria din livadă”, partea întâi

Translation : Andrei Albuş

-In my orchard was my parent’s house, from the countryside is a giant reptile. It is as thick as a human body and one meter long= length, said a colleague teacher after the meeting.

– Where is it? Where isi’t from? asked a curious teacher.

-Probably from the forest near my village, situated in the Prahova Valley, said the man.

– Okay, but how did it you grew up so big? What did it eat? If she grew any bigger what would you do with it ?

– I don’t know. I didn’t think at it. I studied it from a distance. The giant lizard sits like a queen, near the trees in the garden, said the teacher, revealing its characteristic artistic spirit.

-And you didn’t get close to her, never?” asked another professor.

– Why to approach me ? I admire her from a distance, said the man calmly.

-But isn’t dangerous for your family members? It can always enter your home=into the house. Your children=kids are small, said one of the teachers.

Dino saw the sunlight for the first time in a wonderful day of autumn. The heat ground, the sunlight shrouded the shadows in which Sisi, his mother, the giant lizard, was giving birth to her cute baby.

After she was good again, Sisi went looking for food. She was exhausted, powerless and hungry after the effort, after all she hoddanc. She crossed the rood carefully and a giant car came and hit her. Poor Sisi was=became one with the earth.

But it wasn’t his homeland, where he first saw the sunlight, the amazing shores of Malaysia. He came in Romania by plane, in the pocket of Jenică Jănel Ciordilă, the youngest

nephew of the famous clan ‘s chief , with the same name, Lică.

During holidays, nel went as a trip to Malaysia, not for the fantastic Malaysian shores, but for the illegal business of his uncle. Nature never really impressed Jenică, but money fascinated him , always did.

In the evening, he dined on the terrace of a luxury restauranton the beach, a real tropical paradise with turquoise waters of crystal, with fine, soft sand and beautiful landscapes which can amaze you.

He ordered the most expensive food and drink, like he always did , and all of a sudden he felt something moving around his foot and touching his ankle, which he was always moving. He looked down and he saw a tinny and cute, pretty lizard.

When he was young, Jănel and his brothers were playing in their parents’ house with the rats, pulling, taking them by their tail and killing them. Jănel thought that the lizard would be a nice luxury pet and he thought of giving it to his little boy, Ronaldo. He quickly tossed it into his pocket. And the next day, Jănel took it on plane the next day, while going back to Romania.

Ronaldo was very happy when he recieved the tinny, little animal. He was playing with it all day long, and feeding it only goodies, he only gave him good food. Day after day, Sisi that’s how he named it, because of the sounds it made , emitted sometimes – was grouring more and more. Ronaldo was happy and he told his classmates that his lizard was then more than a metre long, exceeded one meter. His classmates didn’t believe him and started laughing. And then, the young biology teacher entered the classroom. He overheard their little conversation and asked Ronaldo:

„From where do you have it ?
„My father brought it to me from Malaysia,” said the boy with pride in his voice. „If you do not believe me, you can come at one place to see it”.

In the nextv few days, the teacher made the Ciofligaru family a visit, in their huge villa. He was amazed by the luxury, but the most impressive thing was Sisi, the huge lizard.

„It’s a Komodo dragon, also named, called “varan”, I suspected,” said the man. „It can get even bigger than this and can become dangerous, for it is carnivorus. Its saliva, full of microbs, kills the animal he attacks, even if they’re only hurt. The kid is in danger”.

Jănel didn’t think about it too much. He grabbed the lizard, put it in his expensive jeep and went in the middle of the forest. And so, Sisi, the lizard queen arrived in the Prahova Valley.

But she didn’t have a happy life. She barely managed to catch food while it was pregnant. And the birth really messed her up, turning her into a victim the truck that crossed the woods at night.
