Tacos are very shy creatures. That's because it gets really messy whenever they come out of their shell. Anyway onto the flash fiction!
The Sage On The Mountain
Once there lived a sage on a mountain. Many came seeking his advice and wisdom. He knew much and often the answer to any question. (He could tap into the secrets of the cosmos like that). He enjoyed helping people for many years. Eventually though he grew tired of it. He still wished to help people but didn't want to do it himself. The Great Laziness of old age hit him. So he used his powers to consult the energies of the cosmos to seek his answer.
Now when people visit his mountaintop they first run across a computer with satellite Internet connection left there by the sage. In a rock next to the computer the sage carved: “If you cannot find your answer on the Internet, they you may ask me.”
No one asked him a question again.
