"The Tiger and The Mule"
One beautiful day there was a tiger who woke with a start. Today was the day she would express her beauty to everybody in town. She would show her unusual golden metallic looking fur with stripes as black as night. She walked around to every house showing her beauty... Until she saw an old shack far away. She trotted up to it. When she barged inside to show the owner her beauty she saw the ugliest mule she had ever seen! She had missing patches of fur and a dirty muddy mane and tail. The mule said, " Your heiress I tell you whatever you accuse me of I didn't do it!" The tiger smiled. She liked the sound of "Your heiress". She asked the mule if she could stay over night and the mule would tend to her every need for a pay of $300! (Of course the conniving tiger would sneak off before the mule wakes up after being pampered.) So the mule sensed her plan and used her witch powers to sneak into the tiger's room and steal her beauty! Then poured it onto herself. The once ugly mule turned into a beautiful gleaming white horse! When the tiger woke early and saw her ugly monstrous face she was flaming with fury! She thought that she was sick and her beauty would return soon, but once she saw the horse she knew what had happened. She demanded her beauty to return. But after she had finished being mean and a bully to the mule, she had become so ugly that she died! The horse stayed beautiful forever!
