Kura-kura dan Anjing

Kura-kura dan Anjing

Malam ini adalah pesta ulang tahun Si­nga, si raja hutan. Semua penghuni hutan, termasuk Kurakura dan Anjing, berkumpul di istana dengan menggu­nakan pakaian dan perhiasan yang gemerlap. Tak lupa juga mereka membawa hadiah.

Hadiah-hadiah itu diletakkan teratur di atas meja dekat pagar istana. Hanya Jian Anjing yang belum menyerahkan hadiahnya.

Rupanya Jian Anjing membawa hadiah sebuah mangkuk kristal bening, la takut hadi­ahnya itu akan pecah tertindih hadiah-hadi­ah lain, la lalu meletakkan mangkuknya di bawah meja.

Setelah beberapa lama, Raku Kura-kura datang. Ia terlambat karena rumahnya paling jauh dari istana. Diam-diam, Raku Kura-kura bersembunyi di bawah meja, la malu kare­na tak memakai pakaian yang bagus. Wah, ternyata Raku sering menjadi pusat perhatian karena ia telah berhasil mengalahkan kelinci dalam lomba lari.

Raku pun mencari cara. Tak sengaja ia melihat mangkuk kristal yang indah. Raku segera mengikat mangkuk itu dengan sangat kuat pada tubuhnya. Lalu, ia keluar dari ba­wah meja dengan penuh percaya diri.

Semua penghuni hutan terpana dengan Raku Kura-kura yang berbalut kristal. Tiba- tiba Jian Anjing berteriak bahwa Raku Kura-kura telah mencuri mangkuknya. Raku Kura-kura dan Jian Anjing pun bertengkar.

Sang raja hutan datang melerai mereka berdua.

‘Aku tahu bahwa mangkuk kristal itu adalah hadiah dari Jian Anjing untukku. Tetapi, aku mengizinkan mangkuk itu menjadi milik Raku Kura-kura,” kata si singa.

Raku Kura-kura sangat bahagia. Dengan sombongnya, ia memamerkan mangkuk mi­liknya itu kepada Jian Anjing.

Tapi, tiba-tiba raja hutan berkata, “Seba­gai gantinya, aku akan memberikan kecepat­an berlari kepada Jian Anjing.”

Sejak saat itulah, Raku Kura-kura hanya bisa berjalan lambat agar mangkuk kristal di punggungnya tidak jatuh, la menyesal kare­na telah serakah. Sementara itu, Jian Anjing senang karena ia dan keturunannya kini bisa berlari dengan cepat.

Pesan Moral :

Mengambil apa yang menjadi hak orang lain sungguh tak baik. Semua per­buatan akan ada konsekuensinya. Jadi berbuat baiklah dan jangan mengambil sesuatu yang bukan milikmu.

Turtles and Dogs

Turtles and Dogs

Tonight is the birthday party of the Lion, the king of the jungle. All forest dwellers, including Kurakura and Dogs, gather in the palace in sparkling clothing and jewelry. Do not forget they also bring gifts.

The gifts were placed regularly on the table near the palace fence. Only Jian Dog hasn’t handed over the prize.

Apparently Jian Dog brought the gift of a clear crystal bowl. He was afraid that the gift would break with other gifts. He then placed the bowl under the table.

After a while, Raku Tortoise came. He was late because his house was the furthest from the palace. Quietly, Raku Tortoise hides under the table. He is embarrassed because he is not wearing nice clothes. Well, it turns out Raku is often the center of attention because he has managed to defeat the rabbit in a running competition.

Raku also looks for ways. Accidentally he saw a beautiful crystal bowl. Raku immediately tied the bowl very tightly to his body. Then, he came out from under the table confidently.

All forest dwellers were struck by the crystal-clad Raku Tortoise. Suddenly Jian Dog shouted that Raku Tortoise had stolen his bowl. Raku Tortoise and Jian Dog fight.

The king of the forest came to separate them both.

‘I know that the crystal bowl is a gift from Jian Dog to me. However, I allow the bowl to belong to Raku Tortoise, “said the lion.

Raku Tortoise is very happy. Arrogantly, he showed off his bowl to Jian Dog.

But, suddenly the king of the forest said, “Instead, I will give Jian Dog a speed run.”

Since then, Raku Tortoise could only walk slowly so that the crystal bowl on his back did not fall. He was sorry for being greedy. Meanwhile, Jian Dog is happy because he and his descendants can now run fast.

Moral message :

Taking what is right for others is really not good. All actions will have consequences. So do good and don’t take something that is not yours.
