Tortoise trundled home. "Oh my!" his wife cried when she saw the state of his shell. It was cracked in a dozen places. "What happened to you?" And when she heard the story, she couldn't help but laugh. "I told you never to sail using someone else's star. And never fly using another's wings," she added this time.
And so it was Tortoise's gift, and warning, to all his descendants, for ever since that day, all tortoises have a pattern of cracks on their shells, the legacy of their ancestor's adventure.
