Fiona Famous was a very popular girl at school. She was clever and fun, and got on well with everyone. It was no accident that Fiona was so popular. From an early age she had made an effort to be kind and friendly to everyone. She invited the whole class to her birthday party, and from time to time she would give presents to everybody. She was such a busy girl, with so many friends, that she hardly got a chance to spend time with individual friends. However, she felt very lucky; no other girl had so many friends at school and in the neighborhood.
But everything changed on National Friendship Day. On that day, at school, everyone was having a great time, drawing, painting, giving gifts. That day in class everyone had to make three presents to give to their three best friends. Fiona enjoyed the task of choosing three from amongst all the dozens of her friends.
However, when all the presents had been made and shared out among classmates, Fiona was the only one who had not received a present! She felt terrible, and spent hours crying. How could it be possible? So much effort to make so many friends, and in the end no one saw her as their best friend? Everyone came and tried to console her for a while. But each one only stayed for a short time before leaving.
This was exactly what Fiona had done so many times to others.
She realized that she was a good companion and acquaintance, but she had not been a true friend to anyone. She had tried not to argue with anyone, she had tried to pay attention to everyone, but now she had found out that that was not enough to create true friendship.
When she got home that night , created quite a puddle with her tears, and Fiona asked her mother where she could find true friends.

“But I want to be everybody’s friend! I need to share my time among everyone!”, Fiona protested.
“My dear, you’re a lovely girl,” said her mother, “but you can’t be a close friend to everybody. There just isn’t enough time to be available for everyone, so it’s only possible to have a few true friends. The others will by playmates or acquaintances, but they won’t be close friends”.
Hearing this, Fiona decided to change her ways so that she could finally have some true friends. That night, in bed, she thought about what she could do to get them.
She thought about her mother. Her mother was always willing to help her, she put up with all of Fiona’s dislikes and problems, she always forgave her, she loved her a great deal…

Namun, ketika semua hadiah telah dibuat dan dibagi antara teman sekelas, Fiona adalah satu–satunya yang belum menerima hadiah! Dia merasa mengerikan, dan menghabiskan jam menangis. Bagaimana bisa mungkin? Begitu banyak usaha untuk membuat teman-teman yang begitu banyak, dan pada akhirnya tidak ada yang melihatnya sebagai teman terbaik mereka?

Ada saja tidak cukup waktu untuk menjadi tersedia untuksemua orang, sehingga hanya mungkin untuk memiliki beberapa teman yang benar. Yang lain akan playmates atau kenalan, tetapi mereka tidak akan teman-teman dekat”.
Mendengar ini, Fiona memutuskan untuk mengubah cara Nya sehingga dia bisa akhirnya memiliki beberapa teman yang benar. Malam itu, di tempat tidur, dia berpikir tentang apa yang bisa dia lakukan untuk mendapatkan mereka.
The Hare With Many Friends
A Hare was very popular with the other animals in the jungle who all claimed to be her friends. One day she heard the hounds approaching her and hoped to escape them by the aid of her Friends. So, she went to the horse, and asked him to carry her away from the hounds on his back. But he declined, stating that he had important work to do for his master. “He felt sure,” he said, “that all her other friends would come to her assistance.” She then applied to the bull, and hoped that he would repel the hounds with his horns. The bull replied: “I am very sorry, but I have an appointment with a lady; but I feel sure that our friend the goat will do what you want.” The goat, however, feared that his back might do her some harm if he took her upon it. The ram, he felt sure, was the proper friend to ask for help. So she went to the ram and told him the case. The ram replied: “Another time, my dear friend. I do not like to interfere on the present occasion, as hounds have been known to eat sheep as well as hares.” The Hare then applied, as a last hope, to the calf, who regretted that he was unable to help her, as he did not like to take the responsibility upon himself, as so many older persons than himself had declined the task. By this time the hounds were quite near, and the Hare took to her heels and luckily escaped
