Coyote got a call from Rabbit to meet her at “the rock”. Rabbit didn’t explain why, she just said it was important.
Coyote remembered the last time they met at “the rock”. That time Coyote had been driving along and saw Rabbit leaning and straining against a huge rock. Coyote was born curious and had to find out what Rabbit was doing. “Boy am I glad you are here” said Rabbit. “I need your help. The sky is falling and if I don’t hold this rock up it will fall on all our people”. Rabbit was very convincing. Coyote was worried and said “I want to help”. “If you press here with all your weight, I’ll run and get a stick to wedge and hold the rock up” Rabbit said. “Okay” said Coyote, and she traded places with Rabbit.
Rabbit took off lickety-split. Coyote held the rock up and waited, and waited, and waited for Rabbit to return. It was getting late and the stars were starting to come out. It was then that Coyote knew that the sky wasn’t really falling and that Rabbit had played another trick on her.
Coyote arrives at the meeting very cautiously. This time she is not falling for any of Rabbit’s tricks. She has brought her own bag of tricks, just in case. Now where is that tricky Rabbit, and what is so important?
