Eraser didn’t like Rubba’s telepathic communication very much. He wanted her to speak in a traditional way, which could be more acceptable for him and for all who were around. He was trying to persuade her to speak some languages, which a lot of humans spoke. He made the first attempt. He said, “Look, Rubba! People on Earth speak and understand each other by means of pronouncing words they know, and listening to the words, which they say. There are so many things that are alike in any languages. Let’s start.” And he began pronouncing some names, which sounded alike.

Eraser could continue, but Rubba said that she would understand if he could tell her the reason of such a phenomenon. Eraser didn’t think a lot, he immediately replied, “It’s the origin, word origin. All languages originated from almost one source, which was added to their native language. Sometimes the pronunciation was different, but those who had good ear for music, could guess. That’s it!” His heads began to swim because of his significance. He was afraid to knot them and stopped thinking too good of himself. Eraser knew that Rubba could read his thoughts, and he shyly glanced at her and smiled.
