Behind every great man is an even greater man. Well, sometimes. Not often. Uh.. today we will talk about Rabbit King, and the one who raised him. Poor Man was at Rabbit King's house sitting in the couch. "Hey Rabbit King", said Poor Man.
"You said that already", replied Rabbit King.
"You said that already!", pointed out Poor Man, "Parrot".
He sighed. "Ok, I'll make you a cup of tea. And considering I never made anyone a cup of tea before it might take a while, don't go snooping".
"Oh I wouldn't dream of it", replied Poor Man, but as soon as he left, Poor Man opened a bunch of drawers and later found a box that said 'Rabbit King's Private Collection'. "COOL! I get to find out his darkest secrets. Is he a jewel thief in Borneo, is he a platypus egg collector? All of my questions are soon to be answered!".
"I heard something, what did you say?", asked Rabbit King from the kitchen.
"Oh, nothing, just yelling at myself", covered up Poor Man, "Poor Man, you're an idiot! You're family never loved you!".
"And remember it!!", shouted Rabbit King.
Poor Man opened the box and gasped. He saw a note and a bunch of pictures. "I'm coming!", said Rabbit King.
"Oh no! I need to know more!", shouted Poor Man, so he took the whole box and went home.
"You know, water is a healthier substitute", said Rabbit King, but when he looked up, Poor Man was gone, "I put a lemon in it. I even sliced it this time!".
Poor Man didn't have time for lemons, he had more important things to do. Looking at his best friend's private collections. "Wow, look at that, he looked like a complete geek at high school", laughed Poor Man, but the photo looked exactly like Rabbit King looked like now, "And oh my goodness. Rabbit King's first tooth! And, a letter, I'm going to read it, if I can".
Poor Man read the letter, and it said...
Dear, Rabbit King
I miss you. I'm sorry for all that happened between us. I knew I shouldn't have put you in the orphanage, I was just so upset. I just wish we can sort things out and become a family again, so my life can be complete again.
"Oh dear, I didn't know Rabbit King had father issues", said Poor Man, "I feel so sorry for them. I'm going to help them out, I'm going to ship his father over here so the two can work things out! But, where does he live anyway?".
So, he looked him up on the internet. "It says here he lives on the island in a small town around a fishing village. His wife died and all of his children moved away. He spent the next 30 years inside his small cottage alone, never talking to anyone and never leaving. Well, that's depressing, but, let's change that", said Poor Man to himself, "Mele! Chomper! I'll be out reuniting a family and changing a rabbit as I know it because I looked through his private collection!".
In the fishing village there was only one house. So, he assumed it was Rabbit King's father's home. He knocked on the door, only to find that the door was open. Used to how his friends work, he walked in uninvited, only to be whacked unconscious with a shovel......
A few hours later, Poor Man woke up tied to a couch. "Well, I'm held against my will, but at least I'm comfortable".
Then, an elderly rabbit came with the same shovel. The shovel appears to have a dent in it the shape of Poor Man's face. "Why do you trespass here, and why do you make me ruin my shovel with such an ugly design".
"Hey, hurtful. You need to at least learn manners", said Poor Man.
"You broke into my home!", he shouted.
"And you didn't offer me a nice cold drink", replied Poor Man, "Oh, and whacking me with a shovel didn't bring much justice either".
"Yep, you're Rabbit King's father all right", muttered Poor Man.
"Wait... you know Rabbit King?", he asked.
"Yea, I do. We're best friends, super close", explained Poor Man, "And you're his father. I'm here to reunite you two!".
"Oh, so he apologized?", asked his father.
"No, he never talked about you. In fact, since he hid your note I'm assuming he hates your bloody guts", explained Poor Man, "Say, do you have waffles in theses parts?".
"Well, I'm not talking to my disgrace of a son till he apologizes", stated the father.
"But, you wrote a note saying you're sorry and that you want to make things right".
"I did, and we talked, then we got into another fight", Rabbit Dad said, "Then we met up again, and we fought again. I'm not talking to him, and you can tell him that scum!".
"Ok, so I'm a messenger now?", asked Poor Man, "AWESOME!".
