Once upon a time, a dove was hatching her eggs. She was very hungry because she could not go out to eat as it’s been raining for many days. She went out to find the food. In her absence, a crow found her eggs. To tease her the crow stole her eggs. The rabbit saw the crow stealing dove’s eggs. When the dove returned, she was very upset to see that her eggs were missing. The rabbit came to tell her that the crow had her eggs. The dove went to crow’s house and knocked the door. The crow was surprised to see her. She blamed the crow that he had her eggs. The crow said, “Eggs. I don’t know what you are talking about.” The dove could smell something burning. The crow looked back. To his surprise, the eggs were boiled fully and were burnt.
