Serval and Tortoise
(A Tswana story)

Long, long ago Tortoise was slowly crawling home when he met Serval on his path.
‘‘Hello old friend,’’ said Serval heartily. ‘‘Have you found much to eat today?’’
‘‘No,’’ replied Tortoise sadly. ‘‘Hardly anything at all.’’

Serval began to dance up and down and chortle with laughter. He had a mischievous idea. ‘‘Follow me, poor old Tortoise. And when you get to my home, I will have supper ready for you.’’
Tortoise gratefully accepted as Serval turned around and gaily bounced along the track that led to his home. Tortoise followed as fast as he could. But he was very slow, especially when went uphill. Though he was tired, the thought of a lovely meal kept him going, so on he plodded.

When Tortoise eventually reached the patch of scrub Serval called home, Serval was laughing to himself. As soon as he caught sight of Tortoise, he teased him. ‘‘Goodness me, what a long time that took!’’

‘‘I’m sorry,’’ apologized Tortoise as he regained his breath, ‘‘but surely you have had enough time to get the meal ready, so do not grumble.’’
