The Crafty FOx

Extracts from this document...


A long, long time a go there was this crafty Fox, oh how crafty he was. You wont believe that he was as, or even more clever than you or me but he was. Sorry did I hear you say that you do not believe me, that you have never heard such nonsense ever before. Fair well then I shall take some of your time to prove this to you. Ah you see that when I mention the word 'story' you start to tremble with excitement. In the old days we had no books, as you can imagine there were no such things all we had was maybe a plate of slate (if that) all flaky and cold that would fall apart in your chalky fingers all white and cloudy. The chalk would be a form of chalk, was sold as chalk but actually had the texture of very soft limestone that would crumble in our hands and then smudge the slate. ...read more.


These little tails are unnessacary but they are just for back ground information. These sellers told me a tale and now I shall tell the this tail. There was once a crafty fox, which was very hungry and thirsty. So he went to the closest fresh water spring. He lapped until he was fulfilled. He started on his way again and as he walked he remembered that he was very hungry. He ended up on a cobble bumpy road and saw a horse drawn cart in front of him. He sneakily ran up behind it and jumped in, landing in a heap of freshly caught fish. He could not believe his luck. He eventually fell asleep after feasting on the fish; there were still many left. He woke up seconds later as the cart jumped and bounced around on a particularly bumpy road. He had an idea. He undid the two bolts that were holding the fish in the cart and it fell open, the fish were now free from the entrapment of the cart. ...read more.


and repeat this before he was fulfilled. The bear believed him and made off towards the local lake, whilst the fox went to his den and fed his family. The remainder of the fish he stored deep inside their den. Meanwhile the bear had followed the fox's direction and had put his long tail in the water. He stayed there all night and no fish bit. He stayed there so long in to the night that he gradually fell asleep in the same position, standing. The next morning he awoke to the sight of the frozen lake and the pain coming from his tail. He pulled and pulled, but it did not work. His tail was stuck, so he grabbed on to a tree and pulled even more, felt some give and heard a rip and then he was free. Just as he let go of the tree he felt the excruciating pain run through his body. He looked around and to his horror there was no longer ab long thick bushy tail but a little stub in its place. This is the reason why the bear has a short tail. ...read more.
