The Badger with a Spot
One day badger got a spot, he was so ashamed of it that he went to space and never came back down!
In Jesus’s time flora was a fish that lived in the pond and Jesus became good friends with flora and one day he met a blind child who had always wanted a pet fish. So Jesus asked flora if she wanted to be a pet and she said yes and went to live with billy. Billy took good care of her and when the time came for show and tell at billy’s school he took flora in her tank. It was a very windy day so billy covered the tank up with a cloth. When billy got to school he took the cover off and flora had disappeared!!!!!! Billy was very upset so that night he lay on his bed and looked out of his window at the stars and there he saw a constellation of a fish it looked just like flora so he named it after her. That’s why Christians have a fish symbol to represent Jesus. But we know that it should be in memory of flora as well.
