THE CRICKET AND THE TOAD
Short Story written by: Estefany Munera Gómez
Once upon a time there was a cricket playing hide and seek in the forest with his friends.
The cricket hid behind a tree where a toad lived. The toad had no friends because he was ugly and fat.
The toad was crying when the cricket arrived, “Why are you crying?” – it asked him.
“I have no friends” – said the poor toad – “Do you want to be my friend?” – said the cricket.
“But don´t you see that I am ugly and disgusting?”
“No, I think you are a nice, humble toad” – said the cricket.
“Why do you think that?, all my friends think I am ugly and disgusting.” – said the toad.
And the cricket answered, “Come on, I will introduce you to my friends and they will be your friends too”.
And that is how the toad and the crickets became very good friends forever.
