Being a season for festivities, what about story time!
In the ancient world,the hare and the squirrel were great friends.By then even animals were not left out in a healthy relationship living.Then it so happened that they lived on different sides of a high mountain and their homes were separated by a huge roaring river.But this did not affect their friendship and one way or the other they were able to communicate as a friend.
They enjoyed each other company and could spend a lo of time talking about different issues affecting their life and that of their surrounding.Remember it was such a long time when animals were able to talk to one another like the human beings.This would seem interesting if animals would also talk to one another at a time like this.
Then one day,as the two animals were talking as usual the hare told the squirrel that on the opposite side he could see very big and ripe fruits which looked too sweet to eat.So the hare told the squirrel that he ought to go and see what he really meant by those attractive fruits since he could not see them.
But what the squirrel didn’t grasp was the fact that those fruits that the hare was referring to were on the same side where he lived.But since the hare was insisting that he go see the beauty of the fruits with his own eyes,he agreed.He used the only one boat that was available to cross the river and there would be no more way of turning back.
So with the convincing voice of the hare,he finally crossed the river.But on reaching on the other side of the hare’s home,he was shown the seemingly sweet fruits.But he felt tricked because the fruits were not far from where he lived and even faulted the hare by asking him why he had really made him cross the river.This is because the hare should have told him that by walking just for a short distance,he would be able to see the fruits.
Though he felt bad there was no way that he would be able to go back to his initial home.This story teaches us think before you act and don’t be hasty in doing things.
