Who Was Number One Page 05

Elephant, who had been a weightlifting champion understood what was happening, so he leaned over to Cow and said, “Didn’t you change the weights?” Cow replied, “Oh, what a mess! I completely forgot.”

By now, Lion was starting to get back pain from lifting so hard. Elephant quickly went to the platform to help and loudly said, “Your Highness, please tell everyone about the third weight you lifted. You see, this weight was me. Back when I was a chubby elephant, I was playing by the river one day. My foot slipped, and I fell into the river. The river was deep, so His Highness quickly, jumped in and lifted me up as if I were a feather. That day he saved my life.”

Lion knew this was the truth, and he said, “What good old days.”
