One hot summer afternoon, a rabbit went down to a river to drink some water. He saw himself in the river when he was drinking.

Look at my beautiful long ears!” the rabbit said to himself.I’m so proud of them. But my legs! They’re short and make me look stupid.

When the rabbit finished drinking, he raised his head and found a tiger was jumping on him. With his short legs, the rabbit began to run as fast as the wind. The tiger could not catch up with him.

I’m so lucky.said the rabbit happily when he stopped running. Five minutes later, the tiger appeared again. Just at the moment when the rabbit saw the tiger, the tiger caught him by his long ears. That was the end of the rabbit.
