The Beautiful Duckling
Once upon a time, there was once a soon to be mother duck. This mother duck had no children yet for none of her eggs had hatched. One bright sunny day, as she patiently waited for her eggs to hatch, the mother duck felt something move beneath her. CRACK!! CRACK!! CRACK!! CRACK!! Filled with happiness, the mother duck watched each one of her ducklings pop out of their eggs. There was the last egg that was larger than the rest and yet to crack. This egg was glistening in the sunlight as it shined silver. Her little ducks impatiently waited for a couple hours because the mother duck wanted this egg to hatch too. “I want to swim in the pond, Mother,” one duckling quacked. “Let’s go! Let’s go!” two more quacked impatiently. All of this yet the mother duck made them all wait because she wanted to love her children all the same. As the moon rose the silver egg glistened in the beautiful moonlight then suddenly, it cracked. CRAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!! Out from the large silver egg popped a beautiful duckling with silky feathers. This ducklings beak was a beautiful bright orange, his feathers were strong and silver, and her face was so beautiful! The mother duck promised that she would treat all of her new ducklings the same no matter their looks. For the rest of their days, the mother duck, beautiful duck, and the rest of the ducklings lived happily ever after…… until they were all feasted on my a large group of hawks. The end.
