Matías was eating calmly when suddenly he saw something move on his plate:

There's a worm on my plate! Matías said, making gestures with his hand as if to scare it away. The worm first looked at the plate, then looked at Matías and then said:

- Glup! It seems I was wrong. This is not a lettuce leaf.

When his fear subsided a little, Matías, who was very curious, came over to observe Don Gusano very well.

- Wow! He thought. Not only is its colors quite strange and beautiful, but it also has many little legs. He must be disoriented.

"Not disoriented, just a little blind," the worm corrected, "but in a voice so low that no one heard him.

For a moment the little worm stopped its march, bent its green back and looked at Matías with its tiny eyes like a lost worm.

They each smiled in their own way. Matías, then, brought a lettuce leaf, which with Mom he took out of the refrigerator.

He loaded it on her and carried her into the garden. Don Gusano felt the air and was happy.

Meanwhile, Matías looked at him with amusement.

Step by step the worm lost itself among the roses with a good bite of lettuce between its jaws.

But yes, unseasoned lettuce!
