Lenny was a hippo. lenny lived a life of public humiliation from all of his zoo enemies. The evilest of all the zoo animals was a parrots called Betty. The worst thing that Betty had ever don eto poor, fat and rather loner-like Lenny, was to empty his watertank just as he was having a rather long, rather strong piddle during the busiest time of the day at the hippo encousure with all of the public watching him. Poor Lenny was so sad and so embarassed, that he attempted to commmit suicide by cutting himself, countless amounts of times. Betty saw what he was doing so immediately stopped irritating him and began to be friends with Lenny. After a few weeks together, Lenny started to have feelings for Betty. Everytime a text came through no matter who it was from, Lenny always got butterflies in his stomach in case it was from Betty. Lenny decided to tell Betty how he felt. This was not a good idea. Lenny did not know the Betty had been sleeping around with other parrots and even monkeys for weeks! Lenny proposed to Betty as soon as he next saw her. She slapped him. Big time. And then Lenny became so depressed that he deleted all of her texts from his phone and cut himself. This time, Lenny died.
