Jayne the Jackal
Written and Illustrated by Daniel Rodrigues
Jayne was a sneaky little creature.
She took Jason’s breakfast while he went
to the lake to drink some water.
Jayne took Jonathon’s lunch while he was
looking for an entrée.
Jayne took Jacob’s dinner while he was
talking to his girlfriend Josie.
Jason, Jonathon and Jacob were not happy.
“We worked hard to get our food” said
“Jayne just takes and gives nothing back”
stated Jonathon.
“This time, we will give her a dessert she’ll
never forget” smirked Jacob.
The next day, Jayne was doing her usual
rounds of stealing other Jackal’s food. She
took Jason’s breakfast, but when she was
about to eat it, there were only grass
Jayne then went to Jonathon’s place to
steal lunch. “Yuck!” said Jayne. There was
only mud in Jonathon’s lunch bowl.
Jayne was feeling hungry from having no
breakfast or lunch. When she went to
Jacob’s place to steal his dinner, all she saw
was tree bark in his bowl.
As Jayne went back sulking. Jason,
Jonathon and Jacob laughed.
“If you worked as hard earning a living, as
you did stealing other Jackal’s food, then
you would have enough food for a
lifetime.” said Jacob.
“You can have some of our food if you
clean our beds and apologise to us for
stealing” said Jonathon.
Jayne knew she did something wrong and
could make an honest living cleaning Jason,
Jonathon and Jacobs beds for food.
“I’m sorry” said Jayne. The three Jackals
smiled and forgave her.
Jayne ended up with a job cleaning the
Jackals beds. She never needed to steal
anymore, because she was always
guaranteed a meal.
