Carefully, he crept to the window and looked at the big round moon, whose Blasting the trees, shrubs and meadows in a silver blanket wrapped. Everywhere glittered the little dew drops as the many, many asterisks in the sky.

What was that? Since moving to something?

In fact, a small, silver bunny hopped through the middle of the garden. It was directed up and sat on the hind legs. The small ears were moving excitedly to and fro and the little nose sniffing carefully considered it in the air.

"Oh," Kai thought, "if only I could have only the rabbit, then I would always have something to cuddle and love have. But certainly this is one rabbit the moon! "
