OUR STORY, OUR PRIDE

Image
Many year ago, there lived a wise rabbit and his friend the old fox. The two friends lived in the forest with other animals. Rabbit was friendly and also loved to help others whenever they were in need but the fox was different. He was greedy and enjoyed cheating others to have more for himself. The other animals wondered how these two worked together and were friends. A few years later, there was famine in the land, and the fox who was left in abject poverty by his parents was really hungry. Other animals stocked up food in their houses while the fox had none.   Grumble!!! Went the sound of fox’s belly. “I can’t take it anymore. Hunger will finish me here. I must do something”. Fox thought.  “Aha! I know what I will do” Fox just had an idea. “Everyone in this village, anyone who has ears should listen. Come to my house with your foodstuffs and I will multiply them for you.” All the animals big and small gave the fox their foodstuff. Little did they know that their food was being eaten b…

THE STRANGE ENCOUNTER 2

Image
The Strange Encounter I felt a little nervous that fateful day because we were going camping in the woods and it was my first time. I always knew the woods as a scary place, but I will just have to manage. We arrived at the camping ground and it looked so amazing; birds chirping everywhere, flowers and trees blooming brightly, the fresh breeze blowing my face and hair. We then met the ranger. He was tall and dark in complexion. He wore a tan colored jacket with green shorts he quickly introduced himself to us “My name is Ranger Tom.’’He told us we were going hiking and will see some bears too. “Grab your bags and follow me.” He instructed. We went through narrow paths across gushing streams and finally "WOW!" The bears cave. Ranger Tom then called their names ‘Fuzzy, Twinkle, Amstel.’ They came out he gave them honey and we played.
Something caught my attention, a beam behind the trees. I went closer and behold before me was a waterfall. It looked as if it was a rainbow, big and…

THE STRANGE ENCOUNTER

Image
It was a boring afternoon with my sisters and I on the couch. Our parents had gone to work and weren’t coming home until tomorrow and there was nothing for us to do. The phones were down and the thunderstorm last night had smashed the Dstv dish.
Suddenly, Stella my younger sister came up with an idea! ‘‘Why don’t we go on an adventure into the valley’’ Without even thinking about it I concluded it was a good idea. We all sprang up from the couch and raced to our various rooms. I put on a yellow T-shirt with animal paw prints all over it. I got my adventure bag and packed all the resources I needed. When I got downstairs, I noticed my sisters had copied my outfit and even the adventure bag. Too excited to get mad I overlooked their ‘offence’ and shouted “LET’S GO!” We reached the valley, it was such an amazing sight that I couldn’t just believe it. The valley had deep holes with water which served as a pond for amphibians. As we ventured on, we saw exquisite things - there were rainbow-colo…
