Today was a very important day for Gerald, It was his first day of school at a new school. Gerald is very nervous for this new school because he is not like the other giraffes in his school due to the fact of his shortened neck. This made him afraid of not fitting in
When Gerald arrives to class he finds a desk in the back of the class to try to hide from his classmates. However he had nowhere to run when the bell rang for recess.
Before long, Gerald was approached by Lenny the Lion. Lenny Began Making fun of Gerald, asking where the rest of his neck was. Within minutes, the rest of the animals had gathered around to see what was happening.
Hey Gerald, what's wrong? Can't reach those leaves with that short neck of yours? Hahaha
None of the animals were trying to help because everyone was scared of Lenny. All of a sudden, the crowd splits and out comes Fanny the Flamingo. She looked Lenny right in the eyes and said "Does making fun of Gerald make you feel better about yourself?" She then took Gerald away from the group.
Does making fun of Gerald make you feel better about yourself?
For the next few days, Gerald and Fanny spent all their time playing together. Before long, Geralds neck began to grow and he towered over Lenny in no time. All he need was help from a friend
