‘Drink it, please’, said the Anteater and passed a cup of hot tea to the cold Fifi.
‘May I get a biscuit?’ asked Fifi.
‘What are you saying?’ the Anteater was surprised. ‘She dreams of a biscuit’, he mumbled disrespectfully.
‘Wouldn’t you like one? It’s almost 5 o’clock.’
‘I don’t have any biscuits. If you want, put some more sugar into your cup’, the Anteater instructed Fifi.
‘May I introduce myself? I am Ant Fifi’ she said and gave her hand to the Anteater.
‘Oh, come on’, muttered the Anteater. ‘I know you are an ant and your name is Fifi.’
‘You do?’ Fifi was surprised. ‘But I don’t know your name and who you are.’
‘How come? What are you being taught at school?’
‘I don’t go to school yet,’ explained Fifi, ‘and I won’t till autumn. So, do you have a name and would you like to give me your hand?’
‘Hm’, he coughed. ‘My name is Theodor’, he said and quickly shook her hand.
‘What a beautiful name!’ exclaimed Fifi. ‘Would you tell me something more about yourself?’, she asked. ‘But first have a cup of tea and sit down next me. It’ll be comfortable to talk.’
The completely confused Theodor grabbed his head and rushed to the kitchen for a cup of hot tea.
