Sally the Swan and Sammy By Bagga
“Sweetpea are you tucked in?”
“Shall I tell you another story about our friend the swan?”
Sally the Swan was very happy swimming in the lake. She swam alone for a very long time. She had nice friends in the forest, but they were not able to join her in the water. Mr. and Mrs. Rabbit liked their dry burrow and they were taking care of their little rabbits. Slimy the Snake almost always avoided water, even slithering up trees and slathering down to avoid a mud puddle. Ricky the Raccoon almost never went in the water. She thought about the big bear. He didn’t mind the water. In fact, he came to catch fish with his big paws. But big bear was noisy and splashed too much. The swan liked the peaceful tranquility of the calm water. She thought about owl. Now owl she liked as he had feathers too. And he could fly. But owl liked to be busy only at nighttime catching his food and didn’t seem to visit her in the day.
She dreamed and she swam so gracefully in the moonlight in the calm lake. She felt snug and warm and not caring about the cold water. She loved her feathers: they were soft and white and when she was very content, she would slowly clean her feathers with her beak. In fact, secretly, she was discovering she was ticklish in some places.
“Are you ticklish sweetpea? Shall I tickle you?”
“Stop Mummy, please tell me about the swan. Is she happy?”
“Let me think. Yes, she was happy.”
“The swan felt warm and safe. She could find food to eat and she loved to swim in the lake. But she missed something?”
“What was that Mummy?”
“Well I think, she really wanted someone to play with her in the water. Someone she could talk to. And most importantly, someone who would tickle her back!
You see sweetpea, she could reach everywhere with her long neck but not quite reach the end of her back.”
One day, something very special happened at the lake. From over the hills of far, far away, a bird flew down and landed in the water. It was another swan. Now our friend the swan was a bit shy, she wasn’t sure what to do or say. She waited and watched to see what would happen.
The new swan looked around and saw Sally the Swan looking at him.
