Children's Stories

There's Something In Here

Donkey, deer and beaver went for a swim in the lake at night. The water was cold and deep. They splashed around and dove down, trying to find fish.

Donkey felt something nibbling his tail. “I think there's something in the water. It just bit me. I want to get out of the lake.”

Deer felt it too. “What if it's a monster?”

Beaver laughed. “Don't be silly. There's no such thing as monsters.” He felt something nip at his furry leg. “What was that?”

“There's something in the water and it likes to bite. Let's go to shore and get out of this lake,” Deer said.

The three animals swam to shore and climbed up the muddy bank just as the moon rose behind the hill. They watched a dark shadow swim away. “Did you see that?” Donkey pointed to the water. “It was a monster and it's swimming away. I don't know what it was, but I'm never going swimming at night again.”

“Me neither,” said Deer.

Later that night Bear shook the water off his fur. “I sure scared them, didn't I? Hee hee hee.”

Donkey, Beaver and Deer never did find out what was in the lake, but whenever Bear saw the three of them together, he chuckled to himself.
