Olive seeds

I am a 5 year old boy. I am walking in the woods. I know where I am going. They are hiding behind that bush. I walk around it and I see 4 puppies. They look frightened. The puppies huddle together and shiver from fear. I continue to walk towards them. My mother rushes towards me and spins me around. she gets on one knee to be at eye level with me. And spits olive seeds in my face.
