Hello, I’m Smarty and I’m at the top of the class. Everyone in the forest thinks that I’m the smartest in the forest, and I can solve any problem. Actually, there’s one problem I don’t know how to solve ……
I was too boastful. At first, I teased the classmates who had lower marks than me. ‘Hey, that test was so easy! Why did you get 70? Ha-ha!’ My classmates just walked away.
Every time we have dictation, exam, homework, I get an A plus or 100, everyone will cross their arms and say, ‘HMPH!’ . I was sad when they did this. Why didn’t I have friends?
One day, a tiger came. The rabbits screamed, ‘RUN!’ They ran and hopped in different directions. They disappeared really fast. I was smart, but I wasn’t as quick as the rabbits that ran really fast. ‘Am I going to be the tiger’s dinner?’ I panicked.
Suddenly something pulled my leg. I was falling down. I shut my eyes and screamed. ‘Smarty, stop screaming! It’s me!’ said a voice. It was Speedy!
I opened my eyes. I was in a big burrow! It was cozy and a pile of food was in a corner. ‘Wow! Speedy, that’s big! How many days did it take you to dig this?’ I exclaimed. ‘I used 3 days to dig this big burrow!’ Speedy said.
‘WOW! Speedy, you are so fast!’ I said. Suddenly, I had an amazing idea. ‘Do you know any other rabbits who are as talented as you are?’ I asked. ‘Sure! Holy, Connor, Milly and Sonya are really good at digging!’ Speedy replied.
At night, when the tiger was asleep, Holy, Connor, Milly, Sonya and Speedy dug a big hole quietly and quickly. The others removed the mud that they dug. Then, we covered it with grass, and used carrots, lettuce, tomatoes and other vegetables to make a rabbit statue before sunrise.
We hid and waited. Then, the tiger came. It yawned. It howled when it saw the statue and jumped on it-then it fell into the hole!
‘Thanks, Smarty. You saved us!’ Everyone praised.
‘It was Speedy that saved us. He gave me the idea!’ I said.
‘Holy, Connor, Milly and Sonya helped too. Without them, I would still be digging the hole!’ Speedy said timidly.
‘Everyone helped us. We wouldn’t be here if everyone didn’t help removing the mud!’ Holy, Connor, Milly and Sonya said.
Hands and congratulating words flew to us for saving them.
After that, my classmates became my friends. I understood that everyone has different talents. I won’t be boastful anymore.
