Curly and Sweety had a lot to talk.
It was after a week that they had met.
Rabbit daughter Curly told Sweety about her Grand Aunt’s village.
She offered a bag of strawberries to Sweety.
“This is from Grand Aunt’s garden” she told her friend.
Sweety, the monkey girl, loves strawberries.
Sweety thanked her profusely.
“Grand Aunt has a nice piano” Curly informed.
“Oh, really?” Sweety responded with much enthusiasm.
“Yes and she taught me a few songs” Curly said.
“Shall I teach you one?” she asked.
“Oh please do, please do” Sweety pleaded.
Curly taught her the song “Doe a Deer”.
Sweety picked up the song quickly.
Both the girls started singing it aloud.
Mama Rabbit heard the girls singing.
She came to the garden and listened to them.
After a while she went into the house to make tea for them.
Papa Rabbit heard the chorus from the grocery.
He watched them from afar smiling for some time.
All of a sudden the two girls heard a voice.
It was Sweety’s brother Willy.
Both girls got up.
A wide-eyed Willy was charging down the pathway.
“Sweety hurry up, Mama wants you” he shouted, panting as he got closer.
“What for?” asked a surprised Sweety.
