They were such good friends, the rabbit and the elephant. The rabbit would sit atop the elephant and they would roam the forest like kings — the rabbit’s nose twitching with approval at all that he saw, the elephant’s trunk swinging gaily with general happiness for no particular reason at all.
The rabbit loved playing pranks. One day the two friends were at the lake . The elephant was drinking water with his trunk inserted at the edge of the lake. The rabbit took a twig, put it into the elephant’s trunk, and tickled ever so slightly.
AA CHHOO! The water burst out in a huge fountain of a sneeze!
The elephant guffawed with laughter, filling all the open space at the lake with sound. The rabbit’s twinkling laugh joined in like starlight.
“Oh you incorrigible rascal!” said the elephant adoringly, swung the rabbit up with his trunk, and placed him back on his head. Once again they roamed the land with joy. They made nothing their own, and so everything was their’s.
