The mouse felt that the big creature was lonely or jealous of him. The mouse had some supporting friends, but the Gorilla, his friends were more rough and tuff and always-saying rude things to others. The Gorilla, wanting to feel better, thought that saying things to others such as mouse that were mean would make him feel better. First few weeks Gorilla said, “Weakling.” But After a few more weeks he wanting to feel more powerful so he said, “Come over here and fight me.” He wanting to prove his strength to his friends, but one-day mouse made a plan. He thought that the only way to stop the big mean Gorilla was to beat him in something. So the next day or so when Gorilla came up to mouse, mouse said, “No more jokes Gorilla, I challenge you to a race.” “To Where,” said Gorilla. “The end of the woods, “said mouse. The Gorilla took the deal thinking he was all mighty and fast through the trees. But he overestimated the mouse; the mouse was the fastest at school and knew out to distract big creatures.
