Turtles and Deer

Turtles and Deer

In the forest, there lived a grumpy deer. He was also very arrogant and often underestimated other animals. One time, the deer took shelter under a tree by the river. There was seen a turtle that was pacing back and forth.

“Hey Tortoise, go away. You’re only disturbing my rest time if you keep pacing there, “said the deer proudly

The tortoise also explained that he was confused looking for food. However, the Deer did not care about the Tortoise’s problem, He continued to drive the Turtles away. In fact, the Deer threatened to step on the Tortoise’s body if he did not want to leave.

The tortoise became irritated. He then challenged the deer to pit the legs. The deer was very angry at the Turtle’s challenge.

The deer swings its legs. How angry he was when he missed his kick. Apparently the Tortoise had swiftly put his feet into the shell. The deer stepped on the Turtle’s shell until the Tortoise sank into the ground. The deer thought the tortoise was dead. He then left the Tortoise.

After a week in the ground, the Tortoise finally got out. Olala, apparently the Tortoise survived. He then looked for the Deer. After a few days, he finally found the deer.

“Get ready, Deer, now it’s my turn to repay your deeds,” said the Tortoise.

The deer were shocked to see the tortoise still alive. But he ignored the threat of the Tortoise. He thought the Tortoise would not be able to fight him.

The tortoise then headed to a high place. He rolled around. When it was close to the deer, he raised his body until it floated. Wow, the turtle is eyeing the deer’s nose. Shell Tortoise also managed to hit it. Because of the severity of the attack, the Deer’s nose was injured until the deer ran in pain.

Moral message

Don’t be arrogant and like to underestimate your friends. People who you think are weak, may have features that we don’t have. Believe me, everyone has their advantages.

Kura-kura dan Rusa

Kura-kura dan Rusa

Di dalam hutan, hiduplah seekor rusa yang pemarah, la juga sangat sombong dan sering meremehkan hewan lain. Suatu ketika, si Rusa berteduh di bawah pohon di tepi sungai. Di sana terlihat Kura-kura yang se­dang mondar-mandir.

“Hey Kura-kura, pergilah. Kau hanya mengganggu waktu istirahatku saja jika kau terus mondar-mandir di situ,” kata Rusa dengan angkuhnya

Kura-kura pun menjelaskan bah­wa ia sedang kebingungan mencari makan. Namun, Rusa tak memeduli­kan permasalahan Kura-kura, la terus mengusir Kura-kura. Bahkan, Rusa mengancam akan menginjak tubuh Kura-kura jika ia tak mau pergi.

Kura-kura pun menjadi jengkel, la lalu menantang Rusa untuk meng­adu kekuatan betis kaki. Rusa sangat marah mendengar tantangan Kura-kura.

Rusa mengayunkan kakinya. Betapa ma­rahnya ia ketika tendangannya ternyata me­leset. Rupanya Kura-kura dengan sigap telah memasukkan kakinya ke dalam tempurung. Rusa pun menginjak tempurung Kura-kura hingga Kura-kura terbenam ke dalam tanah. Rusa menyangka Kura-kura telah mati. Ia pun pergi meninggalkan Kura-kura.

Setelah seminggu di dalam tanah, akhirnya Kura-kura bisa keluar. Olala, ternyata Kura-kura selamat, la lalu mencari Rusa. Setelah beberapa hari, akhirnya ia menemukan Rusa.

“Bersiaplah Rusa, kini giliranku membalas perbuatanmu,” kata Kura-kura.

Rusa terkejut melihat Kura-kura yang ma­sih hidup. Tapi, ia tidak menghiraukan ancam­an Kura-kura, la mengira Kura-kura tak akan mampu melawannya.

Kura-kura kemudian menuju ke tempat yang tinggi, la menggelindingkan tubuhnya. Ketika hampir mendekati Rusa, ia menaikkan tubuhnya hingga melayang. Wah, Kura-kura mengincar hidung Rusa. Tempurung Kura-kura pun berhasil mengenainya. Saking kerasnya serangan itu, hidung Rusa jadi terluka hingga rusa berlari kesakitan.

Pesan Moral

Jangan sombong dan suka menganggap remeh temanmu. Orang yang kamu ang­gap lemah, bisa jadi memiliki keistime­waan yang tak kita miliki. Percayalah, setiap orang mempunyai kelebihannya masing-masing.
