From the outset, the Giraffe was a beautiful animal and had a normal neck just like  though fuller than the Antelope. One year, there was a terrible drought.  All the waterholes dried up, and all the grass became very parched and bitter tasting.  All the animals were extremely hungry.

Giraffe realized that the leaves on the tree tops were still fresh and tasty, and he tried to stretch his neck upwards to reach them, but couldn't. His friend, Rhino, seeing his friend Girrafe try this, laughed at how silly he looked. he extended the mockery to other animals which really got the Giraffe annoyed and stormed off into the bush.

He passed an old man who asked why Giraffe was so angry. Giraffe told him.

"Never mind," said the old man.  "I am a witchdoctor, and I have a special herb here which

will make your friend Rhino regret laughing at you." He gave the herb to Giraffe, who ate it quickly.

Suddenly, Giraffe had the strangest feeling.  His neck was getting longer! He felt very dizzy as the ground started to get further and further away, and closed his eyes.

When he reopened them, he could see the luscious leaves at the top of the trees were level with his head, and he eagerly began to eat them and grew bigger.

When Rhino heard what had happened to his friend, he became very bad-tempered, and  jealous of him because he could not gain the advantage his friend had. he walked away sadly  without uttering a word and to this day, the Rhino is still in a bad mood.

Some people want to see something go wrong for you because nothing is going right for them.Who ever is trying to bring you down is already below you.
