How the Cheeta Got his Spots

By: Devan J.

Once there was a cheetah named Dylan. He was a wild cheetah. He loved sprinting through the forest and chasing butterflies. But he would always get bored.

Then one day he saw a beautiful cheetah named Ashanti. After two years of marriage they had five kids named Sara, Eddie, Raven, Kara and Spots.

Spots was the only one who had spots. All of the kids made fun of him and one day they went too far. They hurt Spot's feelings.

He ran far away into a forest. Spots stumbled on a wishing rock and fell to the ground. He turned around and said a wishing rock and made a wish to fit in.

When he woke up every one had spots.
