The Courteous Crow and the Thirsty Peacock

In the heart of a lush, vibrant jungle, where the whispers of the wind carried stories of yore and the leaves danced to the music of nature, there lived a courteous crow named Cora. Cora was unlike any other crow in the jungle; she had a heart as big as the sky and manners that made even the royal peacocks take notice.

On a particularly scorching summer day, when the sun blazed like a fiery furnace and the streams had shrunk to mere trickles, Cora noticed a magnificent peacock, Pascal, looking forlorn and weak under the shade of a banyan tree. Pascal, with his splendid feathers that shimmered in hues of emerald and sapphire, was the pride of the jungle. However, pride was of little use when one was thirsty, and the drought had spared no one, not even a peacock.

Cora flew to Pascal and, with a voice soft and kind, asked, “Friend, you seem weary. How can I assist you on this sweltering day?”

Pascal looked up, surprised by the crow’s concern. “I am parched,” he confessed, “and I fear I won’t last long without water.”

Understanding the gravity of the situation, Cora sprang into action. She remembered a distant pond, hidden from the eyes of most but known to her. Without a moment’s hesitation, she said, “Rest here, dear Pascal. I will bring you water.”

And so, Cora set off, flying over the parched earth, her wings beating against the hot air, determined to save her new friend. After a long and arduous journey, she reached the pond. The water was clear and cool, a treasure amid desolation. But how was she to carry it back to Pascal?

In a stroke of ingenuity, Cora spotted a large leaf, sturdy and broad. She used it to scoop up the water, carrying it in her beak with the utmost care, flying back as quickly as she could.

Upon her return, Pascal could hardly believe his eyes. Cora gently tipped the leaf, allowing the cool, refreshing water to trickle down Pascal’s throat. The relief was immediate, and Pascal’s gratitude knew no bounds.

“Dear Cora,” Pascal exclaimed, “your kindness has saved my life today. How can I ever repay you?”

Cora, with a twinkle in her eye, simply replied, “In this jungle, we are more than just creatures; we are friends. Today it was you who needed help, tomorrow it might be me. All I ask is that we remember to be kind and help one another.”

The news of Cora’s selfless act spread like wildfire, and from that day forward, the animals of the jungle looked out for each other, sharing water, food, and shelter. Cora and Pascal became the best of friends, their bond a testament to the fact that kindness transcends all differences.
