Frivolity

She wades through the rush of grain stalks like a riverbed, and they shyly bend away. There is more than enough for her to eat for years to come, so she thinks the sight before her is beautiful because it makes it easier to believe that she’ll never need more food.

So when her child accidentally falls and gets his clothes dirty, she doesn’t think twice before taking some of the grain and wiping the dirt off, because regarding the things that she needs, anything surplus becomes unnecessary.

In general, people don’t need a lot. Thus, she finds that there’s a specific feeling of unease when she has too much, although she realises this a little too late.
