All the animals were ready to help. They had all forgotten the ceremony. Soon, they all formed a long line with pails and tried to move water from the river to the jungle. The elephants too were using the water to put out the fire.
Other animals were throwing soil on the fire. Gravedigger was digging and gathering soil. They were even passing the soil by hand to move it nearer to the fire.
Everyone was busy. Giraffe didn’t even think about his falling trousers. The chubby bear wasn’t scared anymore either, even if his trousers were falling. Gorilla didn’t care about marching anymore. Lion didn’t search for his teeth and Fox completely forgot about his sweets. Everyone just wanted to get the fire out. Nothing else was important.
