My fable is:
One dark and cold day there was a peacock in a nice warm house. There was also a very jealous goose who did not have a home as nice as the peacock’s house.
One day the peacock went out for groceries. About then the goose went into the peacock’s house.
When the peacock came back, the goose lied, saying that he was not really in the peacock’s house. In fact, the goose said that he was a hologram.

My fable is:
Long ago in the corral, calm Indian ocean, on the beautiful, compact Andman Island, lived the notorious Aardvark. The boastful, but dull, Stingray and ordinary, but helpful, Chinkara.
“Hello, Aardvark. I can breath on land for hours!” boasted Stingray.
“Then do it!” cackled Aardvark.
So Stingray, being as dumb as a peacock, was also being as brave as a lion and then flapped out of the water. “Help, help,” cried Stingray.
Chinkara heard it on the other side of the island so he galloped over to him. “Thank you for saving my life,” Stingray said to Chinkara.
