點解河馬冇毛

有一日,兔仔喺河邊散吓步。

1

河馬咁啱都喺度,一路行行吓,一路搵啲好味嘅野草嚟食。

2

河馬冇見到兔仔,一唔小心就踩親兔仔隻腳。兔仔鬧住河馬大嗌:“衰河馬!你冇見到你踩親我隻腳咩?”

3

河馬急住同兔仔道歉:“真係唔好意思,老友!我冇見到你!請原諒我!”兔仔邊處會聽河馬嘅解釋,佢激奀晒,大鬧河馬:“你肯定係有心踩親我㗎!總有一日你會受到懲罰!”

4

兔仔去搵到火,佢對火就話:“趁河馬出水嚟食草嘅時候,向佢放把火啦。佢竟夠膽踩我隻腳。”火回答佢話:“冇問題,老友記!我即刻去照你講嘅噉樣做。”

5

過咗陣,河馬正喺離河岸好遠嘅地方食草。呼嘅一聲,火突然間燒咗起上嚟,燒到河馬身上。

6

河馬大嗌住,急住向河邊走去,但係佢嘅毛已經全部燒咗晒。河馬好傷心噉話:“我嘅毛全部被火燒咗晒!你燒晒我嘅毛!佢全都唔見咗!我好靚嘅毛!”

7

河馬嘅毛燒咗,兔仔就好合皮。然之後直到今日,河馬都唔敢離河岸太遠,因為佢驚又要被火燒啦。
