The Mallard duck lived a joyful and lazy life. He was always happy in the lake. There were plenty of stuff do in the lake. He had a big friends circle of frogs and other lake animals he befriended. The only thing he lacked was the company of a lady duck. He always dreamed about a lady duck coming him and getting married.
One day he heard the sweet sound of a lady duck. It was a really cute song about loneliness. Quack, quack, quack that song made him swim with joy. The mallard duck couldn’t resist his curiosity to find out who was singing the sweet song. The sound was so sweet. He thought it must be a beautiful throat.
He padded himself into that direction where the sweet sound was coming. But there was an unpleasant surprise waiting for him. The sound he actually heard was produced by a duck hunter. The hunter was imitating the female duck sound to lure the innocent ducks to his trap. The moment the hunter saw the duck, there was a gunshot. Poor mallard duck died and so his dreams. A sad story, but it teaches us how vigilant one should be about the cruel world. Always be careful not to jump into dangers.
