The Blue Frog and The Honey Bee
Once upon a time, a blue frog lived in a blue pond.
He liked eating flies. Whenever he saw a fly, he would stick out his tongue. The fly would get stuck to frog’s tongue. Then the frog would quickly withdraw his tongue inside and gulp the fly. He then bathed happily in the ink-blue water of the pond.
One day, a honey bee was flying with two house flies near the pond. While the bee settled on a red hibiscus growing near the pond, the flies flew down to the shore of the pond to sit near the cool water. The frog sucked-in both the flies one by one. The honey bee, who was watching the hunting game of the frog from the hibiscus grove, flew to the frog and bit him on his neck.
A little girl was walking to the fountain. She saw a lady in a white sari resting by the fountain.
The little girl asked the lady, “Who are you?”
The lady replied, “Courage”.
The little girl twirled her braid and asked, “What is that? I have never heard of this name.”
Courage replied, “If you have me, you can do anything. Even the most difficult things. You can go to the jungle with your father. He wants to take you there every Sunday but you are always scared. You would enjoy and play with the rabbits and squirrels that you like so much. And nothing would happen.”
The little girl’s eyes gleamed with excitement. She cried out, “Is it that simple?”
Courage smiled and said, “Yes my little princess. You can do anything if you have me.”
The little girl hugged courage and said, “I would always keep you with me.”
The Brown Cuckoo and The Little Girl
Once upon a time, a little girl lived in a house which had an empty land in front of it. A brown cuckoo lived on a red-berry tree in that land. Every morning, before going to school, the girl used to stand on the balcony and listen to the songs of the cuckoo.
The cuckoo flew from one branch of the tree to another to eat the wild berries that decorated the tree like stars on a starry night. One day, when the little girl woke up, she saw that the tree had been cut down and the cuckoo was nowhere to be seen.
