How The Zebra Got Her Stripes.

A myth submitted to the site by Faith

Sutton - In - Ashfield, Great Britain

Long ago in the African Savannah there lived a snow white zebra with no bold black stripes.She was the only zebra in the world! So all the other animals had beautiful patterns so she got bullied all the time.

So one day she thought to her self I have had enough of this name calling and bullying. Later that day she went into the jungle to cry herself to sleep and out of nowhere came an ugly old wrinkly witch, that had been transformed from a beautiful woman but she was selfish and ignorant. The only way to unlock the spell was to help someone else so she came to the zebra and said "Hello, little creature why are you so sad?"
"Sniff Sniff, because all the other animals have a beautiful pattern and I'm just plain white and its just not fair!" replied the zebra.

In a flash of light God decided to turn the witch back to her normal self and because the zebra's words where so touching they decided to give the zebra her stripes and they lived happily ever after looking beautiful.
