The Mallard duck loved his joyful lazy life. He always was happy because of the unlimited freedom he enjoyed in the lake. He was in full company 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 duck couldn’t resist his curiosity to find out who was singing. The sound was sweet so she must be a beautiful one he thought.
So he padded himself into that direction where the sweet sound was coming. But there was an unpleasant surprise waiting for him. A 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.
