One sunny day, there were two birds walking to the Grand Siddick Ponds Hotel, where they were going to stay overnight. These were not just any birds, they were best friends – Jessica the little egret and Keira the kestrel.
They both liked different things: Jessica liked wearing high heels, being posh and glittery, but Keira was lazy and grubby and liked to ride around on a magic carpet.
When they got inside the hotel, Keira went to get the room keys and Jessica had a good look around. They then went to their room, but there was already a family of ducks there. After they reported it at reception they got a very impressive room.
That night, Jessica swapped Keira’s magic carpet with her high heels. In the morning, Keira was going to phone the police, but before she could Jessica said, “I’m sorry, it was me. I just wanted to try and ride around on your magic carpet and I thought you would like to try my high heels.”
Keira said, “I forgive you, but I do want my magic carpet back. How about we have a day when we use each other’s things?” So they did, and the next day they swapped back, staying best friends and never falling out again.
