She was reading. Some of the eggs, began to crack. That first duckling to hatch two spots. Mother called him crayon. The second duckling had brown stripes, zebra, mother, duck. This site, there’s third duckling was yellow. And mother duck named him moonlight. A rather odd looking ducklings hatch from the fourth, the Golgi, Golgi said, and that became his name. Mother duck taught her for ducklings how to swim, how to die, and how to more agile. The Golgi always learned more quickly than the others. It was bigger and stronger too. But no matter how quick they were or what they look like, mother loved all her ducklings. The same. Then one terrible day, three crocodiles team. How do they looked a lot like boutique Golgi. The crocodiles were smiling. And when they laughed with them mouths wide open. World could see that big pointed teeth. Three crocodile have so boogie-woogie and smiled some more. Love. Get that rate. Dikaiopolis, crocodile is walking like a good You’re good. You heard him. I’m not walking like I am a key. Explain. The crocodiles. Laugh. Look at yourself.

The first crocodiles said, your blue gray body let you hide under water without being seen so you can get close to fat. Delicious. The second Craig said, B, sharp claws help your fat delicious ducks tightly so they don’t get away. Third, crocodiles said pointed deep, unnecessary. You can give fat, delicious docs. Three crocodile. We know you live with the ducks. Take them to the rich tomorrow. Practice. Diving, will wait underneath with our mouths wide open. Why would I do that? Gigi asked, why should I listen to you? Because I also feature a bad crowd. And again and then into the grass roots ego gene felt terrible, is set by the lake to think, Is it true? Am I a bad crocodile to look down and the lake and made of fears. Phase boogie-woogie last. I am not a bad market. Of course, I’m not exactly three, brag about nasty and they want to eat my family. I was thinking of a way to stop them. Good, You good, You saw it and so on until finally, it’s a good idea. He went home, happy that night. Three bad Cracker, Barrel, sharp, pointed teeth all the way. I’m thinking of fat. They were ready for their next day.
