One year ago, in late July, Raven saw Beaver in a lake, and Raven
decided to trick him. In that year, Beaver had a round tail and all of
went down to Beaver and said, "Beaver, do you know that there is
another lake on the other side of the road? It is ten times the size of
this lake." So Beaver started waddling to the road and Raven yelled
"You better hurry up before the traffic comes." So Beaver started
waddling faster, but when he got to the road he had to take a break.
Raven saw a semi coming and he said, again, "You better hurry up!" So
Beaver, out of breath, starting waddling across, and when he was about
on the other side of the truck, EEEECH! It ran over his tail, and
flattened it. Beaver was so frightened he ran back across the road. A
few days later, when Beaver's tail was feeling better, he started to
cut down a tree. Raven flew to Beaver and asked, "How are you doing
Beaver replied, "Better than I was a few days ago."
So Beaver kept on chewing on the tree. When he was almost done,
Raven pushed the tree over toward him. Beaver started to turn away but
he tripped on a tree branch that had fallen. When he hit the ground his
mouth hit a rock and knocked all of his teeth our except his two front
teeth, and that's why Beaver has a flat tail and only two front teeth.
