Riddles

It’s the little things that matter.

They say that a butterfly beating its wings in China will cause a tornado on the other side of the world. One of the strongest, most agile creatures on the planet is the flea. A baby in danger will enable its mother to lift a car. The smallest cuts always sting the most. The most offhand comments leave the deepest scars.

The slightest twitch of an eye, lip, finger, leg. A minute shift in weight, gaze, direction. The wording of a sentence. All weapons to be used, information to be exploited, if only the signs can be read correctly.

One wrong move, one wrong word, the wrong look at the wrong time, and everything changes.

It’s the little things that matter.
