Everybody was gathered from the Great Forest, to attend to the big event. Snakes, Rats, Boars, Oxes, and even Tigers.
The rules were simple, who bakes the best pie of the arena, gets the prize (a golden pickle-shaped trophy) and the glory.
Rabbit, on the right side, was the Challenger.
Bear, on the left one, was the Champion.
Rabbit wasn’t even very eager to participate in the first place, to tell the complete absolute truth about the matter. All she wanted to do was to bake a good pie for her upcoming picnic with Bat.
Bear was an absolute pie baking machine, instead. While the referee (a Tucan) was reading the rules out loud, she had baked a couple quick pies just to warm up.
And then, GONG.
THERE IT GOES!!! THE ANNUAL PIE BAKING COMPETITION OF THE GREAT FOREST… STARTS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW
Was loudly announced through the speakers by the commentators. Two cunning looking Scarlet Red Foxes, who would also taste the pies, and be the final judges.
Bear had big paws, but her skills were impressively sharp. She started by launching the dough up in the sky, and slicing it mid-air with her claws (FFFFTZ-FFFFTZ), like a trained ninja warrior.
Cried the Foxes, raptured by the scene.
Rabbit was still reading the online tutorial.
Bear precooked the raspberries, then proceeded to stuff the pies, faster than a lightning. Yes, pies. Her pie of choice this year would in fact be a 5 floors multi-pie, multichromatic with 5 different flavors and a variety of different textures and hidden aromas.
The famous multi-pie will be attempted this year. It is the first time in the competition books, right Donnie? Yes Dunyan, an authentic privilege to be here to witness it happening. A once in a lifetime opportunity.
Rabbit decided to try some chia seeds substitute for the egg. What can go wrong?
After 2 intense hours, the pies were ready.
Now it was time to leave them to take air for a while, so a break was called for everybody.
See you in 25 minutes for the final verdict!
And everybody flooded to the bar.
The time came. The Foxes were salivating over the two boxes, under which two of the most delicious pies of the forest were hidden, soon to be revealed.
3, 2, 1… WAIT A SECOND!!! THE PIES HAD DISAPPEARED!
Everybody was shocked. The Leopards were puzzled. The Giraffes were face palming. The Hyenas, well they were just laughing about it.
Nobody knew what was happening. Nobody ever knew. How would the pies have tasted? What would the outcome have been? Who would have been the winner?
And to be fair, there is no real answer to these question. Cause the two pies were in truth equally delicious.
