GET ME OUT!
The end
"My apple is the coolest of the whole orchard!"
That's what Agapito the worm thought, because from where he was,
he couldn't see anything else. The point is that he wasn't going to let anyone,
and I mean anyone, live in that fruit other than him.
GET ME OUT!
If someone wanted a look, he thought, they would have to keep their distance.
On no account would he allow anyone's feet on his apple.
And even less, to give it a bite!
BECAUSE IT WAS HIS... AND ONLY HIS.
1
GET ME OUT!
Some time later an ant came by asking the little worm if he could give the apple a little bite! She said she'd exchange it for a lettuce leaf.
But the little worm... who wasn't willing to share his treasure... replied no... that... oh... lettuce... was... TOO TOUGH TO EAT.
2
GET ME OUT!
And so after the ant left, the worm went to find some sticks to make a fence so no more ants would be able to get in to take a peek.
He kept thinking that no one should ever touch the apple ... but himself... BECAUSE IT WAS HIS, AND ONLY HIS.

GET ME OUT!
When he finished his work... since he couldn't really leave because someone could steal his treasure... and... since he was tired and hungry… after wondering what else to do, he ended up taking a HUGE bite off his apple.
IT'S OK IF I BITE INTO IT... THIS APPLE IS SO BIG, AND I'M VERY SMALL. IT WILL LAST FOREVER, thought Agapito. But he was mistaken.

GET ME OUT!
Later on, a colorful snail peeked over the fence and also asked the little worm for a bite of the apple. He said he could trade it for a bit of pear.
But the little worm, not wanting to give any bit of his apple away, came up with a lame excuse: "UMMM… ACTUALLY... I DON'T LIKE PEARS AT ALL."
5
GET ME OUT!
When the snail left... Agapito found a prickly branch to place against the fence.
That way no more snails would slide through it.
He kept thinking: "... I'M THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL BITE INTO THIS APPLE... IT'S MINE... ONLY MINE."
6
GET ME OUT!
When he finished working, and since he was tired and hungry,
he gave his apple another bite.
He kept thinking the apple would last FOREVER...
7
GET ME OUT!
But soon a beetle made his way through a hole he made in the fence and also asked the worm for permission to bite into the apple...
He said he'd trade it for a piece of bark.
To him he also replied that no, because WOOD MAKES ME SICK.
(And that was true).
8
GET ME OUT!
When the beetle left, Agapito thought about putting in some iron sheets
in place to stop any big bugs from breaking through.
HE GOT WORKING RIGHT AWAY.
9
GET ME OUT!
When he was done, since he was so hungry and tired he gave a GIGANTIC bite to HIS very own apple, and then another... and another...
"SO WHAT? THE APPLE IS SO, SO BIG...” thought Agapito again.
10
GET ME OUT!
After a long while, a bee flew by and said: “If you let me try your apple
I'll give you some honey!"
But the little worm (who by now was an expert at making excuses) said no: HONEY IS MUCH TOO SWEET!
11
GET ME OUT!
Then, with some slats of wood, he built a cage to defend HIS PROPERTY
from all the possible beggars that could come flying.
12
GET ME OUT!
He was so tired and hungry when he was done with his work,
he kept biting into his apple.
He wasn't concerned about finishing it up.
13
GET ME OUT!
Finally, he felt so happy in his cage that he ate, and ate, and ate, until his precious apple was gone. He didn't realize that while the apple was shrinking he was getting fat. He ate is so rapidly it didn't have time to rot.
And that was how he ended up caught in his own prison. When he realized what had happened, he began to cry, and very ashamed of himself, he started yelling: HELP!
14
GET ME OUT!
The ant, the colorful snail, the beetle and the bee all came to help him get out of HIS OWN prison.
They had heard his cry for help.
15
GET ME OUT!
Then together they all went to visit and bite into the pears, the oranges, the peaches and the cherimoyas in the orchard, and was that when Agapito saw them up close and thought they all looked... pretty cool, too. 16
