A Beautiful Spring Gesture

“It is finally spring,” said Ant as he wandered around Storyland. “It feels good to get out and breathe in some fresh air.”

Ant was enjoying himself but he did notice Crow wasn’t around to pester him.

“That is odd,” said Ant. “I will have to find him. I hope he is okay.”

Ant looked around. He couldn’t see Crow anywhere. He did, however hear a squawk coming from a nearby fence.

“Oh my!” cried Ant, seeing that Crow had his wing stuck on a nail on the fence. “I will help you.”

“How are you going to help me?” snapped Crow. “You are so small and insignificant.”

Ant didn’t listen. Instead, he slowly pulled away each of Crow’s feathers that were stuck under the nail. Finally, Crow was free.

“What you did for me was the most beautiful thing anyone has ever done for me,” said Crow. “I am sorry I called you small and insignificant. I have some new found respect for you.”

“Does this mean we can be friends now instead of you picking on me all the time?” asked Ant.

“It sure does,” said Crow. “It sure does.”


 

Moral of this Story:

  • The strangest combination of creatures can be friends.
  • Example: Ant and Crow became friends after Ant helped free Crow’s wing from being stuck on a nail.
