The hare looked thoughtful as he watched the tortoise get the trophy and the medal that could have been his.
Now the hare was very clever. He could read faces. He looked at the range of expressions on the tortoise’s face and though he saw guilt flicker on the chelonian’s face. That struck the hare as extremely odd. He realized that something had been troubling him ever since the race began. Now he thought he knew what it was.
“Wait!” he cried out as the judges were about to place the medal around the neck of the tortoise as he rested on the rocky pedestal.
Everyone turned to look at him, the loser who could not even beat a tortoise.
He almost turned back then, but he boldly decided to press on.
“Don’t you think it is strange that the tortoise agreed to a race with me? I have been challenging for years, as a jest you know. Why did he agree now? Now why would a tortoise bet against a hare, unless he knew something that no one else did?”
The judging Lion looked at him keenly.
“What do you mean?” he asked.
“To speak plainly, My Lord, what if my sleep wasn’t natural? Everyone knows where I keep my carrots. It could have been tainted with sleeping juice! My reputation has always been clean. I have never fallen asleep in the middle of a race.”
Everyone turned to look at the tortoise whose face instantly turned red. To make double sure, the hare was tested for the sleeping juice and it turned out to be positive.
How unfair would it have been if the cheating tortoise had been allowed to win? The poor hare would have been shunned by the hare community for the rest of his life.
It just goes to show that not everything in life is as simple as it looks on the surface. One has to look beyond and read between the lines to cut down on stress and make the best possible decisions.
