The hare stopped inspecting the room, leaned slightly, and his huge ear lay right on the boy’s head, who couldn’t say or do anything. The hare moved the ear away to see the face of the little owner of the house again.
– You’re in shock, aren’t you? – the hare said. – I can understand you, I don’t believe my own eyes that there is no carrot pie in this beautiful house either. It’s like a conspiracy, all the pies just vanished in one moment! Can you believe it?
– I can. – A boy whispered. – I think I can believe everything now. – I’m sorry for the immodest question, are you a hare or something? – Antonio hesitantly asked.
– It is difficult for me to answer this question, boy. I have never seen a hare before.
Antonio quietly walked away from the guest and moved towards the bookcase. He quickly found an encyclopedia of animals and showed the guest a picture of an ordinary lop-eared hare. The fluffy guest looked carefully at the picture.
– I certainly look a lot like a hare, yes. But I think I’m a little bigger.
