A fictional account on how Pop Corn was discovered

Main Story

Long time ago, people only hunted for food but soon they learned to plant their own food. By this time, they have already learned how to cook food in fire. At the time, it is usually the mothers and the children who would stay home and cook for the family. Usually they would harvest the corn and then grind it to flour to make bread.

It was during this time, there was a little girl named Cee Cee. She was very playful and kind of lazy. One day, the mother was busy with some of the other village folks and left instruction for Cee Cee to cook dinner for the night. Initially, Cee Cee protested. However, the mother told her that if she did not cook, the whole family would not have anything for dinner that night. She reluctantly agreed.

As soon, as the mother left, she started playing near the river and soon forgot about time. By the time she realized it, it was already late in the evening – almost time for dinner. The corn she was to grind was left out in the sun and had already dried up but she did not have enough time to grind it to make bread. Instead, she put all the corn into the pot and placed the pot into the fire. After the while, the corn started popping in the pot. Cee Cee was so frightened, she ran out of the cave and hid. The whole cave was covered with fluffy stuff.

Soon the parent returned home and was shocked with the white fluffy stuff in the cave. Cee Cee's baby brother (who was with the mother earlier) was thrilled with the the new toy. He took some of it and placed it into his mouth and started eating it. As he much, you could clearly hear the crunch. The mother and father tried some and liked the taste and so they had it for dinner that night.

The next morning, they shared some of it with their neighbors. That was how “pop corn” was discovered.
