Horace the Hippo

Value: Envy

Exactly what do you mean you aren’t very? Terrance asked his buddy Horace. Terrance was a toucan and since he was pretty sure he was really pretty, he felt sure everyone thought that they were quite. However in his private thoughts, he did think Horace was very terrible looking. Horace was a hippo.

Well my mother constantly said I was very but then again, she was a hippo too. Terrance, hippos are just not very. Not like giraffes or peacocks a minimum of. He stated jealously.

Ok, well if you could choose something about a giraffe that you would desire, what would it be? Terrance stated. Terrance, like all toucans, could cause desires to come real for the people who they love or like a lot. Thats why individuals like having toucans for animals. It isn’t due to the fact that they are nice birds. It’s the dream granting thing that makes them terrific.

Well if my neck was long and classy, why all the beautiful giraffes would like me and I would have lots of close friends then. Horace said his voice loaded with envy.

Ok, its yours. Terrance said, he flapped his wings large and then stated BAKKAH! which is the spell.

Hi, HEY whats taking place? Horace stated in a panic as he felt his huge hippo head begin to shoot high into the sky under the most beautiful giraffe neck that was growing from his hippo body. When stopped, Horace stood there not really understanding what to do with this much neck. Then, slowly initially and afterwards quicker, his head started to sway back and forth like an out of control carnival trip. His huge hippo head was too heavy for that small neck. All of a sudden, it toppled downward. All around the jungle, the animals heard Horace yelling for aid as the ground grew closer and closer and afterwards WUMP! It attacked the ground.

Murmph mr murtle mu Terrance heard his close friend say.

Just a moment, let me get your head out of the sand. The toucan said and he pulled Horaces head back until it popped back into the air and he laid it on its side with that big giraffe neck just winding everywhere back to his body.

This isn’t working Terrance. Not only is it hazardous, I think I look silly with this big neck attacked to my big fat head.

BAKKAH Terrance squawked and Horace was himself once again.

I still wish to be very. Like the Pelican with those stunning long legs. They can even sleep on simply one leg. I want I might do that, he said lifting one of his squatty hippo legs and afterwards taking down before he fell.

Ok, lets attempt that. Terrance said and out went his wings BAKKAH. Said the bird and the spell took impact.

Right here we go again. Horace said gasping as he shot into the air with his legs growing long and skinny under him. When he stopped, he was standing tall enough to see over the lawn. He peered down at his four pelican legs shuddering attempting to hold up his large hippo weight. Wow, Terrance, my legs are so quite. Horace stated with appreciation and he began to stroll toward the marshes where the other pelicans stayed. But the pelicans didnt see Horace as very because of his long legs.

Yikes! numerous shrieked and took flight thinking it was some type of monster. Others chuckled believing Horace had actually created an odd outfit. Others went to him with Band-Aids believing he was the scene of a dreadful crash between a bird and a hippo.

Oh Terrance, absolutely nothing is working. Horace said bitterly.

BAKKAH Terrance said flapping his wings and Horace was back to normal.

How will I ever stop being ugly? He stated with fantastic despair in his heart.

Horace I informed you previously, you are already pretty. When you say you are ugly, you insult God our developer. Means back in the start of time he made hippos. He made toucans and pelicans and giraffes and even people and each of them was perfectly resulted in exactly what God wanted them to be. We are not made to look quite to each other. Aim to your good friends, the hippos and be at peace that you are what God made you to be. Envy is a method of stating God you did a bad task which makes God very unfortunate undoubtedly. The smart bird counseled his friend.

Well I do not really want God to be unfortunate. I desire to be all He made me to be, not exactly what he made another person to be. I wish to be the very best Horace the Hippo he ever made. Horace stated his huge hippo chest protruding proudly.

Oh Horace? Horace and Terrance both heard a melodic female voice sing out. Just then, Henrietta Hippo stepped from behind the yards. Will you take me to the waterfall today? she said taking a look at him with huge eyes that were full of admiration.

Wow, she is quite. Horace said to Terrance then he waddled her method doing a dance to make himself more very to her. Off they went as Terrance looked on in wonder.

Thos are two unsightly hippos, he said to himself. Then he flew back to his tree to see if there was a very toucan there who might such as a journey to the waterfall too.
