So it went on from day to day till it got worse and worse. The poor duckling was driven about by every one; even his brothers and sisters were unkind to him, and would say, "Ah, you ugly creature, I wish the cat would get you," and his mother said she wished he had never been born. The ducks pecked him, the chickens beat him, and the girl who fed the poultry kicked him with her feet.
So at last he ran away, frightening the little birds in the hedge as he flew over the palings. So he closed his eyes, and flew still farther, until he came out on a large moor, inhabited by wild ducks. Here he remained the whole night, feeling very tired and sorrowful.
In the morning, when the wild ducks rose in the air, they stared at their new comrade. He bowed to them, and was as polite as he could be, but he did not reply to their question. After he had been on the moor two days, there came two wild geese, or rather goslings, for they had not been out of the egg long, and were The Pidey Pipeload Of Hamling - Stanley Unwin - Fairy Stories (Vinyl) saucy.

How they terrified the poor duckling! He turned away his head to hide it under his wing, and at the same moment a large terrible dog passed quite near him. His jaws were open, his tongue hung from his mouth, and his eyes glared fearfully. He thrust his nose close to the duckling, showing his sharp teeth, and then, "splash, splash," he went into the water without touching him. It was late in the day before all became quiet, but even then the poor young thing did not dare to move.
He waited quietly for several hours, and then, after looking carefully around The Pidey Pipeload Of Hamling - Stanley Unwin - Fairy Stories (Vinyl), hastened away from the moor as fast as he could.
He ran over field and meadow till a storm arose, and he could hardly struggle against it. Towards evening, he reached a poor little cottage that seemed ready to fall, and only remained standing because it could not decide on which side to fall first.
The storm continued so violent, that the duckling could go no farther; he sat down by the cottage, and then he noticed that the door was not quite closed in consequence of one of the hinges having given way. There was therefore a narrow opening near the bottom large enough for him to slip through, which he did very quietly, and got a shelter for the night. A woman, The Pidey Pipeload Of Hamling - Stanley Unwin - Fairy Stories (Vinyl) tom cat, and a hen lived in this cottage.

The hen had very short legs, so she was called "Chickie short legs. In the morning, the strange visitor was discovered, and the tom cat began to purr, and the The Pidey Pipeload Of Hamling - Stanley Unwin - Fairy Stories (Vinyl) to cluck. I must wait and see.
Now the tom cat was the master of the house, and the hen was mistress, and they always said, "We and the world," for they believed themselves to be half the world, and the better half too.
