about this story

Once upon a critically overused title sentence, there was a baby.
The baby was sitting on a pile of perfectly spherical rocks, and both the baby and the rocks were about to collapse from sheer boredom. After several months, the rocks did collapse, disintegrating into a gigantic pile of thousands of pebbles.
Due to a massive fluctuation in the laws of normality, the baby had not needed to move from its spot on the rocks for the entire several months. It hadn't eaten anything, drank, or slept, and still it was in perfect condition.
The baby fell asleep.
It began to snow.
Several more months passed, and the snow never stopped. Not one single person stopped to notice the snow-covered mountain as they passed by.
Years passed.

Finally, something happened.
A train came.
A woman from Venezuela got off the train. She was middle aged, with dark hair and golden-brown eyes.
She looked around her at her surroundings: The snow had just finally stopped.
A small tree frog hopped out of her purse, and she took no notice of it.
She looked to her left, and saw a mountain of snow and rock.
The mountain began to melt.
Mesmerized, the woman stared at the mountain as it melted into nothingness.

And a Baby walked out.

The End.
