Chapter 17: Lessons of the New World

The soft calmness of the breeze flowing past his face brings peace to his whole being. Feeling content, Hefty looks around at his home village. He frowns. It isn't his home anymore. All the houses have been burnt to the ground. The wind shifts and now blows in another direction. Hefty turns towards where the wind is blowing and now finds himself in a different place.

This land is strange to him. The trees are much taller then they are back in the forest he once knew. Strange metal birds are flying high in the sky. A lost feeling washes over the strong smurf. Where is he? How is it that he ended up in this strange new world? These questions and more swim throughout his mind.

Suddenly a loud screechy noise causes him to cover his ears. The words 'Thunder!' rings loudly and repeatedly with a deafening beat. It feels as if the whole world is going to crumble beneath him.

OoOoOoOoOoOo

Hefty wakes with a scream. He blinks, peers about him and realizes he is still in his bed in the room he now shares with Sorcerer. But he can still hear loud, rhythmic sounds reverberating around their bedroom. Filled with dread, he looks frantically around trying to pinpoint where the noise comes from. That is when he notices Sorcerer sitting up in his bed staring wide-eyed at him.

"Whoa, you ok dude?" The younger smurf asks with concern.

"What is going on? Where's that horrible noise coming from?" Hefty cries, covering his ears for fear he would become deaf from all the wailing noises that seem to come out of nowhere.

Sorcerer looks at the box sitting on a little table beside his bed and points toward it. "You mean the music from my alarm radio right here?" Hefty takes his hands off his round ears and gawks at it. Sure enough, the loud sound is blaring from the alarm.

"What is that? You keep a group of Harpies in that little box?" Hefty shouts in disbelief.

"Um, I wouldn't really call AC/DC a group of Harpies, but at least they are quick to wake you up right on time!" The magical smurf grins. "It's ok...I'll turn it off since we are both up anyway."

"This place just keeps getting weirder and weirder." Hefty mutters grumpily, shaking his head as he crawls out of his bed.

OoOoOoOoOoOo

Sorcerer leads Hefty down the hallway and into the cafeteria kitchen. The magical smurf is wearing a pair of purple shorts and a matching t-shirt; Hefty had donned his newest regular white shorts with black sleeveless shirt. There in the kitchen the smurfs find the smurfettes preparing a huge breakfast for all the smurflings. Sorcerette, like Sorcerer, is wearing purplish-pink shorts and a t-shirt. In the other side of the kitchen Sassette is showing Toughette how to work the blender.

"Ok, so I add the fruit; strawberries, blueberries, a banana…" Toughette is confirming with a frown as she throws the ingredients into the blender. She glances at the other smurfettes. "Is that right?" The smurfettes nod briskly in the affirmative.

"Whatcha guys doing?" Hefty asks, looking at them in confusion.

Sorcerette looks over her shoulder and grins. "We are showing Toughette how to make a fruit smoothie," She says with a wink at the strong smurf, "They're good. After she's done, we can show you how, too."

Sassette is cheerfully instructing the tough smurfette. "Now add the yogurt, Toughette, and then you can hit the 'blend' button!"

"How much do I add?" Toughette asks a bit anxiously.

"Well, if you want one glass, just keep pouring till you reach the first line on the blender." Sorcerette suggests.

Toughette nods and does as she is told. "Alright," she cheers as soon as she reaches the level requested for her drink. "Now I push the 'blend' button!" With that she jabbed her finger onto the small white button.

Unexpectedly, fruit and yogurt mixture burst out of the whirring blender, the liquid spraying all over the kitchen counter, over the nearby smurfettes and even over Hefty and Sorcerer Smurf too.

"EEK!" The startled smurfettes squeal, throwing their hands up to shield their faces from getting splattered.

Sassette hastily reaches over to shut the blender off. When the blender stopped, she wipes the goo off her face and groans. "Uh, Toughette…you forgot to put the lid on before pushing the button." She says, shaking her head ruefully.

Toughette's head whips around and stares incredulously at her elder smurfette. "You wait until NOW to tell me this?" She snaps looking very much put out.

Hefty can not help it. "Wow, what a mess!" He snickers, and now Toughette turns around to glare at him. Hefty grins at her, grabs a cloth from the counter and starts wiping his black shirt and most of his blue face, pausing only to taste what was left of the mixture on his hand. "Mmm…not too bad, Toughette. At least that's a start!" He says cheerfully.

"Oh, you think you can do better…?" The golden haired smurfette growls warningly at her strong mate.

Before Hefty could retort, a buzzer sound goes off. Sassette looks up, suddenly alert.

"No time, the muffins are done…and I believe the smurflings will show up soon too, so hurry up and finish cleaning up that mess!" Sassette announces firmly. She turns to the young smurfs. "Okay, Hefty, Sorcerer Smurf, you two can serve the muffins!" She orders.

Not sooner she says this than the cafeteria is swamped with hungry smurflings rushing eagerly in to find their seats. Sorcerer Smurf hands Hefty a tray of warm muffins. As instructed, Hefty does as he is told by distributing the muffins among the smurflings. Something about the muffins looks familiar…they even smell familiar, too. For a moment the strong smurf puzzles this over until a long-ago memory filters into his brain, and then his face brightens up. Now he remembers what kind of muffins they are. They are made from the very same recipe Greedy Smurf used to bake for the smurfs from Old Village, so long time ago! Hefty smiles faintly and continues to make his rounds around the tables, passing the muffins out to the smurflings and hearing them saying a polite 'thank you' in return.

Finally he comes across a certain smurfling waiting patiently for his breakfast. It is Tech. Hefty pauses, wondering if the youngster is still upset over the toy Hefty had crushed under his foot yesterday. Hesitantly Hefty places the muffin on Tech's plate and smiles down at the youngster.

"There you go, buddy." Hefty says cheerfully.

Slowly Tech turns his head and sneers up at the strong smurf. "I'm not your buddy," he says coldly and turns away, acting as though Hefty isn't even there at all.

Ok then, Hefty sighs internally. "Of course, what was I thinking…?" He rolls his eyes up sarcastically at the smurfling and continue, heavy-hearted, his rounds of handing out the muffins to the rest of the clamoring smurflings.

OoOoOoOoOoOo

"Alright, then. Follow me please," Nat is saying as he guides a small group of six smurflings, properly dressed in outdoor outfits with either pants or shorts for this hiking trip. Following them along are Hefty, Toughette, Sorcerette, and Sorcerer Smurf. For the past half hour the older nature-loving smurf had led them up a path, teaching them to observe and identify different roots and plants along the way. As they continue down the path they come across a large heavy branch lying right across the trail. To the smurfs this branch looks massive…indeed, it could be considered equivalent to a fallen tree in human sense.

This means the smurfs will have to jump over the branch, seeing there is no other way around it. Nat climbed over it first. Next Hefty and Toughette jump over it with greater ease, which impressed quite a few of the smurflings. One by one, the smurflings climbs over the branch. First Tech Smurfling, next little Nursette, third a raven haired smurfling jumps over. Little Floraette in her mauve jumpsuit stands proudly before catching up to the others. The fourth member of the group is little Melody, who attempts to leap over, but didn't quite make it. Hefty catches her just in time. Melody recovers quickly; pushes back a few strains of her amber color hair and gave him a bashful grin. It becomes obvious that she is forming a crush on the strong smurf. Toughette had to giggle at the sight; it reminds her so much of the early days of the Old Smurfette Village. Sorcerette is next. In a graceful leap she jumps right over the branch and strikes a pose on the other side as though to say, 'ta-da!'. As the last two smurflings are climbing over the fallen branch one of them slips and ends up with his pants snagging onto the part of the jutting stem.

"Ow!" The smurfling cries out.

The other smurfling in baggy clothing snickers. "Hey Clumsy, there's a letter in your mailbox!" He shouts, and falls down in a gale of hysterical guffaws.

"Thanks Skater, I'm aware of that…ooh." Clumsy Smurfling says without a hint of rancour as he buckles over, moaning in pain.

"Hang on Clumsy, I'll get you down." Sorcerer offers kindly, reaching quickly over the branch to the stranded smurfling, grabs hold of him, and pulls him up. Hefty steps forward and helps the whimpering youngster down to the ground.

"Letter in your mailbox?" Hefty asked Sorcerer with a puzzled expression.

"He means that Clumsy got a bad wedgie." Sorcerer explains, trying not to laugh at poor Clumsy's misfortune.

Hefty scratches his head, looking even more confused. "What's a wedgie?" He asks.

"Well, you must have seen how little Clumsy here slipped and get his pants caught, didn't you?" Sorcerer pauses until Hefty responds with a nod of his head 'yes', and then continues. "Let's just say it's not the most comfortable feeling when this sort of thing happens." The magical smurf chuckles awkwardly.

"Yeah, it hurts…But I'll be alright." Little Clumsy smiles up at the adult smurfs.

Hefty could not help but smile back at the brave young smurfling. He is so much like his namesake, in fact, this little fella is the reincarnation of the Clumsy he have known and loved back in the Old Smurf Village.

It only takes less then five minutes for Sorcerer, Hefty and the two last smurflings to catch up to the group in an open meadow. There they observe Nat showing the smurflings how to set up a temporary camp as a part of their survival training.

"Does anyone know what we must do first when we set up a campsite?" Nat asks the smurflings who are surrounding him. All of them look at him with blank expressions. A few of them exchanges glances to see anyone in the group knew the answer.

"No one…?" Nat looks puzzled, even slightly disappointed. "Perhaps Hefty and Toughette could help answer this question then." He peers hopefully at his un-aged older siblings from the Old Village.

Both strong smurfs exchanges bewildered looks for a moment until it dawns on them what Nat wants them to do. They smile with sudden understanding and start surveying the area around them. With a nod Hefty and Toughette walk up to the smurflings sitting in a half circle on the ground. Nat and the young magical smurfs also sit down on the side in order to allow the strong smurfs the chance to prove not only to the smurflings, but to themselves what they are capable of.

After taking a good look at his young, adoring audience (save for Tech, who still is showing no appreciation for the tattooed adult smurf), Hefty is the first to speak. He grins at the eagerly awaiting smurflings and says, "Well, first thing we do when arriving at a potential campsite is to look for a relatively high and level ground.

"Next it is important to take note of a water source nearby the camp. As we all know; water is an essential part of camping." Toughette adds.

"Thirdly," Hefty steps up, "Find a good spot for your campfire. Something you will most certainly need to cook your food and keep you warm at night."

Toughette nods approvingly before speaking again. "To start up your fire pit the first thing to located a spot, clear a circle of 2 to 5 feet from around the fire pit of excess pine needles and leaves and if possible, splash water on the ground around, but not in or on, the fire pit. Note that you should not use wet or damp rocks to line your fire pit as they can heat up and explode. Make sure the rocks are completely dry."

"Next you find yourself decent firewood," Hefty instructs as he and Toughette are now demonstrating how to start a campfire. He starts by guiding the smurflings along the edge of the forest to pick up twigs. "The best types of wood are old dried wood from conifers, or otherwise known as, evergreens. Dry cones are great too. Wood from pine, cedar, and spruce will start a fire quickly but will also burn swiftly. Woods such as oak, ash and maple will burn longer but are more difficult to ignite, as they are hardwood. Aspen, birch and poplar are quite common and they make good fires as they burn hot but fairly fast."

The smurflings appear to have fun with Hefty and Toughette as they collect wood. Tech, on the other hand, is still keeping his distance from Hefty and does what he can to ignore him if the young adult so much as say something to him, or even just to look at him. Nat had to laugh when he overheard Hefty commenting to Toughette that they should rename Tech 'Grouchy Smurfling'. Sorcerette and Sorcerer Smurf both raise their eyebrows in wonder at that comment.

Nat and the magical smurfs continue to watch attentively as their timeless mentors teach the smurflings about the safety of how to build up and start a campfire. First they lay down a proper foundation of tinder, such as shavings from dried twigs and pine needles. Above the fine tinder bed, they crisscrossed a few larger dry twigs about the size of smurf-size pencils.

"Ok, now we will show you how to start up a proper fire." Hefty triumphantly declares.

"Duh, we already know how to start up a fire. It's called a lighter." Tech Smurfling scoffs. With that said, he takes out a pocket lighter and with a click or two he lit it up. A tiny flame appears as if by magic at the end of the small metal rectangle, dancing in the breeze.

Toughette's and Hefty's jaws drop in amazement. Judging from their expressions on their face, they seem to be thinking at the same time; Is there anything this new world can't do?

Nat frowns at Tech's rude behavior. "Uh, Tech, we are here to learn how to start a campfire without the use of our modern technology," the older smurf chides, taking the young smurfling's lighter away. "And besides, you are not supposed to be playing with these things!"

"Yeah, kid, leave your magical toys at home." Hefty says gruffly.

Tech glares angrily up at Hefty, turns away from him and sits down in a pouting posture with his arms crossed in front of him.

"Anyway…" Toughette leans in to give Hefty a look that said 'focus on our lesson, not on this smurfling's issue'. She then holds up a couple of pieces of wood, one flat and the other semi long and pointy. "To make a decent campfire you need a flat board made from a soft wood like Pine or Bass Wood. This longer piece with the point is called your Drill. It's best to use a harder wood like Maple or Oak. Then you got your springy wood of either Ash, or Hickory to name a few, a leather or Rawhide lace and a smooth dimpled rock or piece of hard wood is used for your Bow."

Hefty takes over in the lecture. "To start a fire, place your tinder partially under the V-notch in your Fireboard, like Toughette is now demonstrating for us." He says while Toughette begins starting up the fire. "Wrap the lace around the drill one turn. Place the sharp end of the drill in the hand block and the dull end into the fire block. See how Toughette does it? Begin to work the bow back and forth, like a sawing motion."

Toughette was "drilling", her hand moving forth and back quickly. Hefty continues: "Slowly increase your speed while keeping a steady rhythm. Watch for smoke coming from the fire block and continue until the smoke is constant and not just an occasional puff. Quickly set the bow and drill aside and dump the hot "sawdust" from the block onto the tinder. Gently blow, just like Toughette is doing." Hefty looks over his young audience to see if they are still following him so far and indeed they have. Satisfied, Hefty continues his lecture; "It may take several tries to get the "sawdust" hot enough to "light up" the tinder. But as you can see, Toughette is somewhat a pro at this and already a fire has started."

The smurflings oohed and aahed with awe at how these new strong smurfs successfully get their campfire burning without even needing any of modern technology.

"Now that we got a decent fire going, what do you say we eat lunch now!" Sorcerer Smurf exclaims happily, rubbing his hands in anticipation. The smurflings all cheer loudly at the idea.

OoOoOoOoOoOo

As they eat their lunch around the beautiful campfire, the smurflings listen avidly as Nat, Hefty and Toughette tell stories of what they remember of the Old Smurf Village and the Old Smurfette Village. It wasn't a surprise that each of the smurflings would interrupt every so often to ask questions about the events being described to them.

After a while the conversation gradually starts to die down, until there was a silence as the smurfs, lost in their own thoughts, finish their lunch. Finally Toughette swallows her last bite from her sandwich and looks up at everysmurf.

"So, what new things do you smurfs do after you built a campfire?" She asks curiously.

"Well, much like we use to from the old days, we would sing songs." Nat explains.

Little Nursette perks up. "What kind of songs did you sing?" She chirps intriguingly, looking at the adult smurfs.

At this question Hefty, Toughette and Nat looked at each other. Even the magical smurfs looks interested at the thought as well.

"Well," Hefty starts, "In the Old Smurf Village, the smurfs didn't know many songs…just the La-La song, and a few Christmas songs."

"In the Old Smurfette Village there was one smurfette in particular that would sing many songs. She had the most beautiful voice too." Toughette sighs, reminiscing.

Nat smiles and turns around to address the young smurfling with the amber hair. "Little Melody here has a pretty voice; perhaps she would do us the honor of singing a song for us right now?" He suggests with a wink.

At this offer the little smurfette instantly blushes a shade of pinkish-purple and begins shying away from him.

"I-I'm not that good." She said almost in a whisper.

Hefty smiles and leans forward to look at the little smurfette in the eyes. With a friendly smile he says, "You know, I would really love to hear you sing, Melody."

Melody looks at him and smiles back with a twinkle in her eye that reminded the strong smurf of a certain smurfette with the golden voice back from the Old Smurfette Village.

"I would love to hear you sing too, Melody." Toughette chimes in eagerly.

"Yeah, Melody, sing!" Little Nursette claps enthusiastically.

All the other smurflings join in to cheer their bashful sister on.

"Yeah!"

"Come on Melody!"

"Sing us a song!"

"Your singing is slammin!"

Again little Melody blushes, pleased, and a little overwhelmed at all the support she is getting from her peers and the adult smurfs as well. "Ok, fine…I do know one song I can sing…" she admits shyly.

Again the smurfs cheer and clap with enthusiasm as she prepares her little voice to sing. As soon as they see that Melody is ready to start, they become very quiet and lean forward to listen:

All my life's a circle, sunrise and sundown.
The moon rolls through the night-time.
Till the daybreak comes around.
All my life's a circle,
But I can't tell you why
Seasons spinning 'round again,
The years keep rolling by.

It seems like I've been here before,
I can't remember when. And I've got this funny feeling that we'll all be together again.

There's no straight lines that make up my life. And all the roads have bends. There's no clear cut beginnings and so far no dead ends.

I've found you a thousand times,
And I guess you've done the same.
But then we lose each other,
It's like a children's game.

As I find you here again,
The thought runs through my mind
Our love is like a circle,
Let's go 'round one more time.

After Melody finishes the song with a beautiful perfect note at the end, the other smurfs and smurflings break out cheering wildly. "Awesome!" They shout. With a bashful smile, little Melody takes a bow.

Not long after everyone has finished their lunch, the adult smurfs show the smurflings how to properly put a campfire out and clean it up afterwards. That way, the youngsters, having built their own small campfires, are taught how to make sure the fire is completely out, leaving no hissing sounds that would indicate smoldering embers hidden beneath the ashes.

And they do a very job doing just like that – except for Tech. He had been told to give the fire a good, hard look to make sure there is no more sparks, but he doesn't do the job exactly how Hefty and Toughette were showing the others. Hefty noticed Tech's still smoldering embers in the fire pit and shakes his head exasperatedly at the youngster's carelessness.

"Ah, Tech, when it comes to campfires there are no such thing as 'short-cuts'," Hefty lectured, "You need to make sure it's out completely!"

"What's the diff? We are living in a country that rains every other day," Tech replies snobbishly with an indifferent shrug.

Hefty put his fists on his hips and looks at him with annoyance. "That's not a good enough reason! What if it doesn't rain? You could be responsible in starting a forest fire!" Forest fire… He winces inwardly, and an old memory from a long time ago rises into his mind. That was when the younger and careless Snappy accidentally started a forest fire which nearly destroyed the Smurf Village many years ago. Hefty grimaces; he could still remember how terrified the Smurfs were over the near loss of their houses, and possibly their lives, too. Hefty opens his mouth to give Tech yet another stern lecture. But, looking into Tech's eyes, Hefty can tell there is something else on the little smurfling's mind. Perhaps it is not time to scold the youngster just now.

"Man, what makes you think you know everything?" The fuming little smurfling shoots back rather impudently.

"Well, uh…" Hefty tries to explain. But for once he is unable to find the right words, so he closes his mouth and could not continue any further.

"Oh forget it…just leave me alone!" With that said, Tech turns and runs off into the woods.

"Tech, wait!" Hefty calls out frantically after him. He quickly glances over his shoulder at the other smurfs, many of them looking very concerned, even alarmed.

"I'm going after him," the strong smurf announces, trying to assure them. He then takes off, running after Tech.

Nat and Sorcerer Smurf are about to start running after them as well, but Toughette grabs both of them and pulls them back just in time.

"Wait," She says, "I may not know much of this new world, but I know Hefty. You two know as much as I do that he and Tech's past life have history. Let's give them a chance to work this out by themselves."

Reluctantly, the two smurfs nod in agreement. Together they watch Hefty disappears around the bush in a direction where Tech went just moments before.

OoOoOoOoOoOo

"Tech, wait up!" The strong smurf shouts again, trying to overtake the fleeing smurfling.

The youngster glances back but keeps on running. He has no idea where he wants to go, but as long as it takes him far away from that stupid smurf chasing him and out of his reach, it's all that matters.

However, thanks to his speed and endurance, Hefty quickly gains on Tech until he is able to catch up with the youngster. Unfortunately, as Hefty is about to grab hold of the little smurfling's shirt, Tech trips on a rock. With a loud cry, the smurfling tumbles head over heels down in a nearby steep ravine.

"No!" Hefty cries in horror. Without hesitation he leaps into the ravine, following Tech down the rough side taking care to watch each step so he doesn't start tumbling, too.

Helplessly, Tech slides off a sloping overhang and, after a short fall, lands hard on top of his right ankle and collapses on the ground.

"Ow!" He cries out in pain, clutching at his throbbing ankle.

"Tech!" Hefty screams, having reached the bottom of the cliff. With a mighty leap he sails across the air and lands right in front of Tech.

Startled, Tech looks up at him wide-eyed. He has never seen anyone jump from that height and land so perfectly like Hefty just did. Needless to say, he is quite impressed.

"Tech," Hefty calls to him once more, kneeling before him and looking at him anxiously, "Are you ok? Say something!"

"Ouch." The little smurfling squeaks in a tiny voice.

"I'll take that as a 'yeah, I'm fine' then." The strong smurf mumbles, mostly to himself. Then, seeing how the little guy is holding his leg tenderly with a look of agony on his youthful face, Hefty says in a more clear voice, "You don't suppose you'd let me have a look at your ankle, would you?"

Still impressed with the smurf's mighty leap, Tech slowly loosens his grip on his leg and allows Hefty to lean over and inspect it. First the tough but surprisingly gentle smurf carefully takes the little smurfling's shoe off, pausing briefly at every slight whimper Tech makes. Eventually, the shoe comes off and Hefty notices right away a swelling around the ankle.

"Well, the good news is, it doesn't look broken. It appears you have a bad sprain." Hefty declares, slightly relieved.

"How would you know anything about sprain or broken ankles?" Tech snaps, just remembering he is still upset with the brawny smurf.

"Oh, trust me; I know a bit about broken limbs," Hefty winks at the smurfling, "I myself had broken my leg once, and believe me it hurt, a lot!"

"Really…?" Tech couldn't help but smile a little.

"Yeah," Hefty nods and smiles back at him. He pauses to think for a moment then looks at him. "Look, I'm really sorry for stepping on your toy last night," He says sincerely, "If I had known what it was, I swear I wouldn't have smurfed it like I did."

Tech looks at him and for a moment he seems unable to make up his mind how he feels about Hefty. Finally, however, he relents. "That's ok," the smurfling says with a sigh. He shrugs and adds, "I've been planning on building a bigger and faster version anyway."

Hefty brightens up at Tech's remark. "If I promise not to step on it, would you let me see it?" He asked hopefully.

Tech gives him a suspicious look. "I don't know…you probably won't understand the technology that goes into it."

"Probably not, but if you'd teach me maybe I might understand…someday!" The strong smurf gives a sheepish grin that makes the little smurfling smile back at him once again.

But then, Tech suddenly frowns and looks away.

Worried, Hefty leans toward the smurfling and places his mighty hand gently on his tiny shoulder. "What's wrong?" He inquires.

Tech shrugs off Hefty's hand. "Nothing," The youngster mumbles in a small whimper.

Hefty hesitated, then picks the little smurfling up and settles down on the ground before putting him gently on his lap.

"Look, I know we got off at the wrong foot," Hefty says quietly and kindly, "But you've got to talk to me if I'm here to help raise you smurflings!"

"But that's just it…" Tech appears to be struggling inwardly for a moment and finally blurts out, "How do I know you will stick around and not leave us?"

Taken aback, Hefty glances down at him with a puzzled expression. "Where did that come from?" He asks, confused.

"I don't know, ok." The little smurfling pouts. "It's weird. I just have this feeling you might leave, or at least I think I dreamt you did once. But again, I only met you yesterday, so how would I know that?"

Baffled, Hefty just looks at the little guy. Then it hit him, and Hefty realizes that Tech is probably remembering a past life experience when he was Handy Smurf. It might have been around the time when the Smurf Dam burst and took him away from the Smurf Village.

"Tech, listen, I promise I will not leave you and the other smurflings!" He assures him, wrapping his around the smurfling in a reassuring hug, "I'm staying here for as long as you all need me, ok?"

"You promise?" Tech asks, looking at him searchingly to make sure Hefty is not just saying that.

"I promise," Hefty replies with a firm nod.

Hearing this, Tech is satisfied. He throws his small arms around Hefty and hugs him back. Hefty is a little surprised but vastly relieved; he knows then that Tech has forgiven him, and that they will be good friends from now on.

After a few moments Hefty pulls back and looks at the smurfling. "Ok, why don't we get you out of this ravine and return to the Smurf Community to have your ankle taken care of?" He suggests.

"Alright." Tech nods in agreement.

Smiling, Hefty gets up with Tech in his arms and carries him all the way back to join the other smurfs waiting patiently for them.

A special thanks goes to my beta-reader, Tabby Tadavi. Her help is greatly appreciated.

UPDATE REPORT!

Title: How Things Smurf
Chapter: 18
Chapter Title: How Some Evolve and Some Stay the Same
Genre: Adventure/Humor
Rating: Fiction Rated: K
Summary: Two smurfs are surprised when they wake up 500 years in the future.
How did they get there? And what happened to the home they once knew?

Chapter 18: How Some Evolve and Some Stay the Same

Scratching his white beard absently, Brainy Smurf thinks for a moment and then plunks away at the keyboard of his computer for a few more minutes. He is getting close to finishing up some of his memoirs of his earlier adventures he and his small group had before they arrives in Canada. It is a hobby he likes to do from time to time. Looking at a bundle of pages he had written so far, he smiles faintly to himself. In some way it reminds him a little of the time when he was in the Old Smurf village, when he had written his Quotations of Brainy Smurf books for his fellow smurfs to read. Sadly, none of the smurfs had wanted to read his books, save for Clumsy Smurf.

Ah, Clumsy Smurf. Brainy leaned back, feeling a sudden pang of melancholy. It's been centuries ago, and yet the memory of Clumsy's untimely death is still fresh and painful as though it were yesterday. The aging bespectacled smurf sighs and stares off into nothing in particular. If anything, he still misses the old Clumsy from so long time ago. The bumbling but cheerful smurf wearing oversized cap that was always slipping down his forehead…he was noteworthy in the old Smurf Village for his kindness, an unflagging optimism and a willing to please everyone. And now he was gone. And yet…

The sound of someone knocking on the door startles Brainy out of his reverie. Pivoting his chair, he turns away from the computer screen and faces the door. "Come in," he calls out.

"It's just me, Brainy." The voice responds from behind the door. It opens to reveal Hefty. Smiling sheepishly, the tough smurf slinks into the room and stands before his now-older brother.

"Afternoon, Hefty," Brainy adjusts his glasses, looks at his brother again and muses, "Hey, heard about your little adventure with the smurflings today."

Hefty looks a little flustered and shrugs. "Yeah, I guess smurflings will be smurflings." The tough smurf looks down and scratches his head nervously, the recent incident with Tech Smurfling still fresh on his mind.

The elder brother chuckles. "I guess they will be that." Then he notices the expression on Hefty's face and raises his eyebrow in suspicion. "Is there something you wanted to talk about?"

Hefty pauses. There is indeed something he wants to ask Brainy about, but he is having trouble trying to find the right words to express his thought. He just doesn't want to sound like a total idiot. After a moment's hesitation he sucks in a deep breath before looking up at Brainy.

"How do you do it, Brainy?" Hefty finally blurts out.

"Huh?" Brainy takes a closer look at Hefty and for the first time the red-capped elder is able to see the fear and confusion in his young strong brother's face. Back in the Old Village all the smurfs had looked up to Hefty for strength and leadership. Now that very same smurf is feeling as helpless as a young smurfling lost and alone in the forest in front of his bespectacled brother. Brainy is bewildered. Shaking his head, he replies, "I don't think I understand."

"This…" Hefty cries out, waving his hands in midair. "This world… the Smurflings… you… it's all so new, so different! How do you handle it?"

Brainy leans back in his chair and places a finger under his chin in a thoughtful pose. Carefully he ponders over his younger brother's words.

"I'm not sure to be honest," The aging smurf finally answers. "I guess what I am saying is to not always dwell in the past, but to look forward. Besides, if you really look at it, things have not changed that much."

Hefty blinks. "Ah, but what about all of this…?" He persists, pointing at the computer and other utilities in the kitchen.

"Oh yes, technology has changed a great deal, for sure," Brainy nods, "There are many things nowadays that would have the original Handy Smurf drowning in his own drool with envy!" Brainy chuckles slightly at his little joke. "But seriously, speaking of the smurflings…Each of them has some of their original personalities, which I have explained before."

"Maybe…but their behavior…" Hefty sighs ruefully.

"I know," Brainy nods his head again in agreement as if he knows exactly what his brother is talking about. "I often wonder what Papa Smurf would say seeing how the new generation of smurflings are behaving. The only suggestion I can give is to have patience." Again, the elderly Smurf lets out a chuckle. "Which I'm sure sounds rather funny coming from me!"

Hefty tilts his head, reacting to his brother's quip with a smirk and a raised eyebrow.

A sudden, light sound of someone knocking on the door distracts Brainy for the second time. "Come in," he calls out.

The door opens a few inches and a tiny blue face pokes in. "Elder, I found your favorite cup in the reading room. I thought you might need it," the young smurfling with an oversized cap slipping down his forehead says in a shy voice.

Brainy looks at him and his face softens. The adult Clumsy from Old Smurf Village may be gone, but his younger, reincarnated self is, thank the stars, still around with Brainy and his large family. "Thank you, Clumsy. That is very thoughtful of you," The elderly smurf nods and gestures towards the kitchen with his hand, "Just put it on the kitchen counter for me, ok?"

"Alright!" The little smurfling chirps happily. As he emerges into the living room, however, he scarcely takes two steps before he trips over his own shoe laces. He lands with a hard thud, and the cup flies out of his tiny hands and shatters into hundreds of broken ceramic pieces on the floor.

"Gosh, I'm sorry, Elder Brainy!" The little smurfling gasps with sheer terror in his voice.

"That's ok, Clumsy," Brainy starts to rise from his seat. He freezes for a second when he notices the young smurfling frantically go around picking up the sharp broken pieces. "It's all right, Clumsy, just leave them there," He says in a firm but gentle tone. The last thing he needs is to have another smurfling in the clinic being treated for injuries today.

"But Elder…" The little smurf look up with big saucer eyes.

"I said it's ok. I'll get one of the adult Smurfs to clean it up."

"Alright." Reluctantly, the little smurfling drops the broken glass pieces on the floor and gets up, shaking his clothes to get any extra bits of glass off him. Almost involuntarily Brainy looks down at the smurfling's shoes and can see shoelaces dangling loosely from under his baggy pant legs. The Elder sighs and shakes his head with a slight aggravation.

"Clumsy, Clumsy, Clumsy," Brainy speaks in his lecturing tone, "How many times have I told you to go change your shoes from shoelaces to Velcro?"

"Um…ten?" The little smurfling glances bashfully up at him.

"Well, why haven't you changed them yet?"

"Because Fashionette and Designer Smurfling didn't have any in my size." Little Clumsy innocently replies.

Brainy frowns slightly. "Shouldn't they have made a pair for you by now?"

Clumsy lowers his head. "I don't know."

Brainy leans against his cane and sighs again. "Well, you better go figure that out with them….right now." He says, pointing his cane towards the door.

"Ok." The little smurfling turns around and takes a step towards the door. But just then Brainy glances once more at the youngster's shoelaces flapping loosely around the ankles and realizes Clumsy would likely to trip over again if he doesn't do something about it.

"Clumsy wait," Brainy calls out suddenly to him. Little Clumsy stops in his tracks and looks curiously over his shoulder to see what his Elder has to say. Brainy beckons for the smurfling to come to him. "Come here for a moment."

"What is it, Elder?" The Smurfling asks, walking back to the red-capped Smurf.

"Let me tie these up for you, child," Brainy offers. So saying, he carefully bends down on one knee on the floor. Moving into this position this way causes a great deal of discomfort in his lower back. With a groan, Brainy mutters, half to himself, "I'm getting to old to be doing this!"

Hefty, who had been observing silently the entire interaction between Brainy and young Clumsy, can not help but smile as he watches the aging Smurf ties the little smurfling's shoes. It had struck him just how Brainy is behaving so much like "Papa Smurf", the way he is tending so patiently and so gently to little Clumsy. Ever since Hefty reunited with Brainy and his group after centuries of deep "sleep", the tough Smurf had been wondering how much his intelligent, bespectacled brother has changed since the good old days in Smurf Village. Now Hefty can see for himself that Brainy had indeed changed. To his surprise, Hefty finds himself almost envying the way Brainy is so mature, tender and considerate to the next generation of smurfs.

"Gee, thanks Elder!" The little smurfling cheers happily as soon as Brainy finished tying the second shoe.

"Now go see if Fashionette and Designer Smurfling have made your new pair of shoes yet," Brainy says, pulling himself back up with the help of his cane.

"Yes, Elder." The little smurfling spins around and trots off to the door. As he opens the door and is about to take off into the hallway, Brainy calls out, "And no running in the halls!"

"Oops. Sorry, Elder." This time little Clumsy starts walking more carefully as he slowly closes the door behind him.

Brainy watches the door for a couple of minutes, lost in deep thoughts. His whiskers twitches. Clumsy still hasn't lost his natural tendencies…in fact; he really hadn't changed at all that much. Despite his tender age, Clumsy is still Clumsy, and it warms Brainy's heart to know that even after all the long centuries, Clumsy was not lost forever.

Sighing, the aging smurf turns and immediately notices Hefty smiling at him with a knowing twinkle in his eye. Brainy frowns slightly. "I know what you are thinking, and you better not say it!" He shakes his cane at the young adult smurf.

"Aw, but that was way too priceless," Hefty teases.

"Uh-huh." Brainy mutters gruffly as he hobbles towards a nearby closet. "What can I say; Clumsy will always be Clumsy no matter what." He opens the door, pulls a broom and a dust pan out and hands them to Hefty.

"What's this for?" Hefty demands, holding his hands up in protest.

"It's to clean up the mess in the kitchen, if you don't mind!" Brainy says in a no-nonsense voice, "I'd clean it myself, but my back is starting to ach." He pushes the broom and dust pan almost into Hefty's face so the strong smurf has no choice but to take them. He gives his older brother an annoyed glare.

"I suppose you would like me to wash the windows too, huh?" Hefty growls.

"Ah, that would be nice. Thanks," Brainy answers in a sarcastic voice. He hobbles back to his chair in the front the computer and begins to jab away at the keyboard once more.

Hefty shakes his head in exasperation and looks down at the broom in his hands. But then he begins to smile. "At least some things haven't changed too much." With a shrug, Hefty begins to sweep the floor.

Hello, Raven Child. I'm Amtraksmurf, the smurf person who loves the Smurfs and Amtrak combined.

Oh, I just ever so adore all three of your smurftastic stories and the sketches of the smurfettes! The smurfette sketches you drew are very smurfy, and very "haba haba!". The stories you typed are also smurfy, It has everything: Adventure, Drama, Comedy, Romance, and most of all; Tragedy. When I red the parts that are tragic, I just burst out alot of tears and cry(The parts that are tragic is the one from the story "The Smurfette Village", that everysmurf think that Hefty is dead after the Smurf Dam accident. The other parts is from the story "How Things Smurf", when the 10 surviving Smurfs had just lost all their love ones in the village by that deadly disease. It's so heartbroking for them.) Oh, just thinking those parts won't make me stop crying n tearing. Well, at least I fell better when I red from your lastest story with parts saying that new beginnings had just began.

You are very talented, Raven Child, very talented.

Now, About that "Please Note" from Ch. 14, is it true? The origin of the smurfs and smurfettes came from a magical plant? A human sorcerer is they're father and the earth goddess they're mother? The two gargoyles and the Garden and Eden
being there? Bust my buffers and smurfs! This is all too much! And I think I just know one ep. that is based on that chapter, which exactly is: Once in a Blue Moon.(I don't know what other eps. that are based from this theory) I think I understand this theory, alittle.

Soooo. Know what I think you should do to your stories? YOU SHOULD TURN YOUR STORIES INTO MOVIES!!! Why not?! You should take up your next career as a animation movie porducer, or send your stories n sketchs to WB HQ(Warner Bros. Headquarters). I bet smurffans around the world would like this [singingly]idea! Let me tell you one thing though; It's kind of hard for me to picture these in my head while I was reading these stories, you know like trying to imagine it as a movie in your mind, you know what I mean.

So I think you should think about this. It's such a smurfy idea after all.

Okay, That's all I need to say to you.
Smurf you later!

P.S. Hurry with the next chapter, I'm dying to know what happens next!

P.P.S. And do some more sketches, especially these cute smurflings!(And this time, IN COLOR AND WITH NAMES!)
[Happy Smurf]

Hi amtraksmurf,

Thank you for such an honorable review for my smurf fics. It would appear that I have a strong habbit to mix so many emotions in all my stories that I write, lol. That and I love to create new and original characters (and not just for fanfics, but original stories too). In my story the characters, The Smurfettes, I have created way back when I was 8 years old. Since then I have of course updated their appearance so they appeal to a somewhat 'professional' standards.

Most of the 'history' of the smurfs in chapter 14 are in fact made up. The episode, as you mentioned, is the one and only episode that briefly explains their background. Since not even Papa Smurf knows of their own history, I decided to make it up. It is also based on what some fans claim they have read in smurf comics (like the bit about an old sorcerer creating the first smurfs). Basically I wanted more details to explain the theroy of their existance so I thought up of a 'Garden of Eden' for the smurfs, the Gargoyles are an added touch being that those creatures are designed to protect...i.e. the Nonrandom Chirch in Paris.

I find it ironic that you would mention I should get into animation. In fact I am in a computer animation course right now. My goal is to get into character designs and possibly produce my own animated series, movies, ect...

It will be hard to say if my smurf story idea would be accepted, but it would be interesting if they were published into their own series, lol.

Again, I'm so glad you are enjoying the story. I will try to complete the next chapter soon and work on more sketches in the near future.

Take care, and stay creative!
Raven Child.
