“After his humiliating defeat. the hare never quite found his feet again. Falling asleep during the race was the biggest mistake he had ever made. And as we all know, there are some mistakes we never recover from, mistakes which rule our lives from the moment we make them. A week after the race, the hare had to move his family to another forest, where news of the hare’s failure had not yet reached. His self-esteem dropped so low that he stopped finding food for his family. As a result, his wife left him, taking their baby bunnies along with her, but not before she left a note on the bedside table for him to find, in which she wrote, ‘I’m sorry you’ve given up on yourself. I’m sorry if this looks like I’ve given up on you too, but I’ve little choice. I’ve our children to think about. Also, there’s somebody new in my life. Somebody swift-footed and strong and who loves me deeply. Maybe one day, you’ll learn to forgive me, and maybe you’ll learn to forgive yourself too.’”
