Education English | Narrative Text : Landi |There was a porcupine, named Landi. He was lonely. No one wanted to play with him because they were afraid of his spikes.
"Dear Landi. We do not want to play with you because you are bad spikes are too sharp. We don't want you hurt us" said cici the rabbit one day.
"Cici is right, Landi. It is not because you are bad or rude to us. No, Landi Just because of your spikes. They will stabs us when we come close to you, "said Tito the rooster.
Landi felt lonely. He hummered, "Why don't they want to play with me?"
Landi spent most of the time day dreaming at the river bank. "I would have lots of friends and play with them if no spikes were on my body. I would be happy. I would not be lonely like this. What a shame!"
Suddenly, Kuku the turtle appeared from the river. He came to Landi and said, "Landi, what are you thinking of>"
"Oh,nothing," Landi replied.
"Don't lie to me, Landi. Please tell me your problem. Who knows I can help you", Kuku said wisely. Then he sat beside Landi. He was not afraid of Landi's spikes.
Shortly, Landi told Kuku his problem. Kuku nooded his head. He said, "Poor you. But it is not your fault. I know your spikes are very useful and helpful to you. Your friend will realize it some day. Trust me, Landi"
"Thanks, Kuku. You are really my best friend. You are the only one here who wants to be my fellow".
One day, Sam the frog held his birthday party. He invited all his friends, including Landi. He decided not to come. He did not want to mess up the party.
"I''l come with you, Landi. I'll tell everyone that you are harmless" said Kuku. Finally, Landi attended to the party. Everyone enjoyed it.
Suddenly, Tito ran here and there screaming. "Help yourselves!" Then every one ran to save their lives, except Kuku and Landi. Kuku pulled is head and legs into his shell. Landi rolled his body into a ball.
Unintentionally, the evil wolf stepped his foot on Landi,. Of course the spikes pricked him. He screamed, "Ouch!", Since his foot was bleeding, he did not chase Landi's friends any longer. Then he ran away.
"Horray,,Horray...! Long live Landi! He saved our lives, " said Cici and her friends. Everyone shook Landi's hand and thanked him. From then on, Landi was not lonely anymore. His friends knew that his spikes would not hurt anyone, unless they wanted to hurt Landi.
