Zebra was fed up of his appearance. He hated the stripes on his body. How he wished he didn't possess the dual skin tone. Why couldn't he be either black or white?

"But Dad, the humans are more advanced."
"Being advanced means living in peace son, not resorting to mindless wars."
Zebra now felt proud of his stripes.
