One day, while Rabbit was hopping home from his day in the forest to his hole under the cottage, he heard a different voice. Singing! It was a sweet, lilting voice that made his long ears stand right up straight! Who was it!
As he crept closer to the elves' cottage, peering carefully around each branch and bush, he saw that the cottage door was open. And there, right there in the doorway, stood the most beautiful young girl he had ever seen, sweeping and singing an angelic song.
"Oh! What a pretty rabbit!" she exclaimed, startling poor Rabbit out of his wits! "Come here, dear, I won't hurt you!" Rabbit wasn't sure he should, but he moved closer to the girl.
"My name is Snow White," she said, standing her broom up against the cottage door. "I've been hoping for company with the elves away all day. Would you like to go for a walk? We can go adventuring together."
Rabbit's ears wiggled back and forth making Snow White giggle. "I guess that means, yes," she laughed.
So off they went, Snow White leading the way and Rabbit hopping along like an old friend. Together they found a peaceful place to stop and smell the flowers, listen to the birds, and watch the butterflies flitting about.
"I don't know when I've had such a nice time," Snow White exclaimed. And Rabbit's ears just started wiggling and wiggling, he was so happy to have a new friend.
(The hand-painted Snow White figurine was a $4 local thrift store find not long ago. In her previous life, she lived in a garden. I find that garden items make great cottage home accessories! Don't you?)
