The little crooked lamb

(0) One night a mother sheep gave birth to a lamb which came out crooked with 3 legs and no tail. On that same night the mother died and the lamb was all alone by herself and her name was Scarlet. Months went passed and scarlet grew and grew but never got a tail or a leg back. she never knew her father, the only friend animal she knew was her bestfriend Ruby the Kitten. One day Scarlet said to Ruby,"Oh Ruby, I am one little crooked lamb who never knew my mother." Ruby replied,"No you are not Scarlet, some people say being born with 3 legs and no tails is a gift of luck in the future." (Brittany, Age 8 to 12, 2/9/2005 12:58:26 AM, littlecrookedlamb)

(2) "That's mean. They're wrong, Scarlet. They're just jealous." Ruby said comfortingly. "I'm not pretty. I'm ugly." "No, you're not. You have a beautiful name, beautiful eyes plus you have a sweet personality." "All of those things could fit a dog." mumbled Scarlet unhappily.

(3) "Not true. Why, if you're this upset about LOOKS, why don't you go to the look fairy?" asked Ruby." "There's such a thing?" said Scarlet, wide-eyed. "Yes. And she only asks for you to awnser ONE riddle." Ruby said. "WOW!" (Cierra, Age 8 to 12, 7/3/2006 8:19:46 PM, littlecrookedlamb)

(4) "That's awesome. Lead me to her!!!" fifteen minutes later... (Cierra, Age 8 to 12, 7/4/2006 11:08:21 AM, littlecrookedlamb)

(5) She came to the place where the fairy was supposed to be but she couldn't find the fairy! (by Cierra edited by Sophia, Age 8 to 12, 12/22/2011 8:45:58 AM, littlecrookedlamb)

(6) Excitedly, the little crooked lamb followed Ruby into the forest. There she was. A beautiful girl, near a vast pot. "Yay!" thought Scarlet. "Maybe she can even give me 1 more leg and a tail." She was excited. "Ah. A new customer. My riddle is this: What has four legs, is acient but still alive, and used to(but still does) tromp on grass and eat it to?" Scarlet was puzzled. Then she awnsered slowly. (Cierra, Age 8 to 12, 7/4/2006 11:12:29 AM, littlecrookedlamb)

(7) "An acient horse!" she cried! (Cierra, Age 8 to 12, 7/4/2006 11:14:35 AM, littlecrookedlamb)

(8) The look fairy gasped and said, "You are right, and you deserve a potion." she started mixing things up, and came up with a potion. But, the poor clutzy lamb dropped and cried. (Cierra, Age 8 to 12, 7/4/2006 11:16:36 AM, littlecrookedlamb)

(9) "You are already pretty, but, so as the boys don't tease you, here's something for that." the look fairy gave her a potion, and the little lamb drank it. And suddenly, she had four legs and a tail. (Cierra, Age 8 to 12, 5/2/2010 2:18:48 PM, littlecrookedlamb)

(10) And no one ever teased her again. And Ruby and Scarlet remained Best friends, and it was a happy ending. (Cierra, Age 8 to 12, 7/4/2006 11:21:32 AM, littlecrookedlamb)
