Ungali Tree (originally L'arbre Ungali)

A Chapter by she who must not be named
"

This was my French play that I had to do at school. The first chapter is the story directly translated into English (so if it sounds lame, blame the French writer), and the second is afterwards, a sequel made up by this dude, who can never stop laughing.

"

Narrator:

Here is a story which takes place in a country in Africa. It's very, very hot. The ground is dry, the sun shines all the time and there is no clouds in the sky. It has not rained for a long time, and everyone is very thirsty.

The Lepoard:

I'm very thirsty!! So, what can I do? I want water.

The Zebra:

Me too, I searched and searched, but I can not find water. I hope we'll find water soon.

The Antilope:

It's true. There is no water in the lake, there is no water in the river. We need water.

The Tortle:

(She speaks very slowly)

Listen! I... know.

Everyone:

Yes? Do you have an idea tortle?

Tortle:

Yes, we must ask the lion... he is the kind... he is intelligent. I can go.

Lepard:

Excuse me, but you do not run fast, tortle! I am the fastest of all the animals. I can go. I want to talk with the lion. Bye, my friends! (He runs.)

Everyone:

Bye, Lepoard, and good luck!!

Narrator:

The lepoard arrives at the house of the lion. He talks with him.

Lepoard:

Mr.Lion, what can we do? It has not rained for a long time. Everyone is very thirsty. It's a big problem. Can you help us?

The Lion:

Ok, Lepoard. You must go to the Ungali Tree, a magical tree, who's here, in the forest. You must say the tree's name, and after that, the tree can help the animals. Say to the tree that everyone is thirsty, because there is no water. Don't forget! It's Ungali Tree!

Lepoard:

Oh, thanks, Mr.Lion, thanks!! I will run to the tree, now! Bye!

Narrator:

The lepoard runs, fast, fast, fast. All of a sudden, he does not see that there is a rock on the ground, and he falls.

Author's Note

she who must not be named
If I have any grammar mistakes, it's either because the French grammar confused me, or because I was careless. And I know I spelled Lepoard wrong, but I'm too lazy to fix it.
