So, the lonely little bunny snuggled up to the baby deer and
they talked quietly most of the day. It was almost time for the sun to go down when Mother Deer returned and took
the baby deer away. The lonely little bunny said goodbye to her new friend and returned to her home
in the hollowed out log at the edge of the field. That night, Mother Bunny asked the lonely little bunny to tell about
her adventure to find the perfect friend. The lonely little bunny told about her day keeping the baby deer company.
"Did you find your perfect friend then?" asked Mother Bunny.
The lonely little bunny thought for awhile then said, "No, I
do not think so. I liked the baby deer very much and will visit her often, but she was not allowed to run and play.
She had to stay very still in the tall grass until her mother came to get her. My perfect friend will be allowed to
run and play. I would like to go on another adventure tomorrow to find my perfect friend."
"Very well," said Mother Bunny, "but I want you to come home before
the sun goes down again tomorrow."
The next morning, the lonely little bunny woke early and dressed in
her favorite red dress and frilly white apron. As she skipped out of the hollowed out log, she gave her mother
a hug and a kiss and promised to be back before the sun went down.
As the lonely little bunny bounced up the path that led around the
field, she noticed a pretty white fence surrounding a beautiful garden full of flowers. The lonely little bunny saw
something moving in the garden and went closer to see what it was. It was a little girl. The lonely little bunny
went up to the girl and said, "Hello, little girl, would you like to play with me?"
