A long time ago, a hare and tortoise lived in Rwanda. The hare’s name was Leo and the tortoise was simply called Mr. Tortoise.

One day they were walking along the path and they were conversing about different things. Then they started arguing.

“I can run fast,” said Leo the hare.

He looked at the tortoise and said, “You have very short legs, but look at my leg, ehh! They are very long and very strong.”

They walked on without a word and at that time Mr. Tortoise did not like Leo very much.

Leo had hurt Mr. Tortoise’s feelings and he did not realize it. Instead he kept on boasting.

“No animal can run as fast as me,’ said Leo “I am the best!”

Now Mr. Tortoise was angry.

“I can also run fast!” he shouted “you are not the best!”

Now Leo the hare and Mr. Tortoise were not very happy friends. Leo realized that he could lose his best friend, so he said he was sorry for saying hurting words to Mr. Tortoise.

After this they laughed and talked about other funny things as they walked along the path. They stayed good friends for a long time.
