I, the Hare, was the quickest and fastest out of all the animals. Every race I was challenged to, I easily won. Other animals perceived me as cocky, when really I was just proud of my success. One day I was hopping around, looking for a friend, when I encountered the tortoise. The tortoise had an issue with my speed, so he challenged me to a race. Of course I accepted his challenge, knowing full well that, in a fair race, I could easily beat the tortoise. Little did I know, the tortoise had created a devious plan. I didn’t learn of the tortoise’s dirty trick until after race.
As soon as the race began, I sped off far ahead of the tortoise as he slowly trotted behind. I noticed as I sped away that the tortoise had a mysterious grin on his face. I didn’t think anything of it. But as I neared to the finish line, I began to feel very drowsy and could feel myself slowing down. I struggled to keep running. Before I knew it, I allowed myself a stop to rest. I lay down, and before I knew it, I was asleep. I woke up just as the tortoise was crossing the finish line. He looked back at me with a playful smile and gave me a wink. It was then I knew what he must have done. Before the race he snuck a powerful sleeping pill into my drink. The tortoise won an unfair race and was praised by all the animals despite his unjust behavior.
