Narrator: Once upon a time, in a peaceful river bank, mother duck and father duck is waiting for their eggs to hatch. They’ve been waiting for days to play with their beloved ducklings.
Mother Duck: “Why my eggs haven’t hatched yet? I want to play with my ducklings soo bad… oh god please hatch them soon ”
Father Duck: “Be patient darling, I’m sure they’ll hatch soon ”
Narrator: And finally, at one beautiful and sunny morning, their eggs started to hatch one by one.
Mother Duck: “Oh my god! Finally! My eggs hatches! Oh my beautiful ducklings. Come, come to Momma! Oh honey, look! Look at our beautiful ducklings”
Father Duck: “Oh my god… Yes darl, our ducklings are soo beautiful…
I’ll go and tell everyone that our eggs have hatched!”
Narrator: They were soo happy. Father duck immediately went to tell everyone. When he goes, mother duck started to count her ducklings, when she realized that one of her egg haven’t hatched yet. It was the last and biggest egg of them all.
Mother Duck: “Hmm… i wonder why it hasn’t hatched yet. Naah, I’ll wait for this one to hatch and then i will surely play with my kids. But why does this egg looks soo different? Hmm, i hope this egg will be worth the wait.”
Narrator: Mother duck was confused. But she continues to wait and wait… hoping that this different egg hatches to be the most beautiful of them all. But her hope crashes when the last egg finally hatched…
Ugly Duckling: “Quack quack! Mother, Mother!!! Quack quack!!”
Mother Duck: “What the… WHO ARE YOU?!”
Ugly Duckling: “Huh? Of course I’m your daughter… quack quack”
Mother Duck: “But why do you…. Nevermind.”
Narrator: Mother duck was confused. What appears before her is one big, filthy, and ugly duckling with shrill voice, soo different with the other ducklings. Not long after that, Father duck came. Mother duck tried to hide the ugly duckling, but then…
Ugly Duckling: “Father! Is that my Father, Mom? Quack”
Mother Duck: “Uh… Oh.. Why you.. errrr”
Father Duck: “WHAT? YOU’RE ONE OF MY DUCKLING? Hey you @#$%^&*&^%$# !!!! are you having an affair behind me?! Why does THAT duckling looks soo ugly?! She’s not my duckling!!!”
Mother Duck: “No honey no… I will never have an affair I’m confused as well… there’s no way that she’s one of our duckling. I refuse to consider her as one of my duckling ”
Father Duck: “Is that so? Well… but why does she look so ugly?!”
Mother Duck: “How in the world could i know why she looks like that… i definitely won’t admit her!”
Narrator: Mother and Father Duck didn’t realize that the Ugly Duckling is listening to their hateful conversation behind them… the Ugly Duckling felt so sad. It turned out that her parents weren’t the only ones who mocked her. The other animals, and even her siblings also mocked her everytime they met.
Animal 1 & 2: “Hey pals!”
Ducklings: “Yo what’s up!”
Animal 1: “Let’s pl… Look look! Here comes the ugly duckling! Eewww”
Animal 2: “Let’s go away guys!!! Beautiful animal like us should never hang out with a creature as ugly as her! Bye!”
Duckling 1: “Look! Everyone got away because we’re with you, filthy Duckling!!!”
Ugly Duckling: “But.. i didn’t do anything wrong… ”
Ducklings: “EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU IS WRONG!”
Narrator: The other ducklings immediately left her alone. The ugly duckling felt so sad and tired of all animals that mocked her. Until one day, she decided to left her family. She wanders alone, not knowing where to go and what to do… she was being mocked by all the animal that she met in her way. It made her feel more, and more sad. She continues to wander further until one day…
Old Lady: “Oh look! What is she doing laying in my field? How poor she is..”
Narrator: The Ugly Duckling was found by the old lady while she was sleeping in that lady’s field. The old lady then decided to pick up the ugly duckling, thinking that she may got some benefit by taking care of the ugly duckling.
Old lady: “Come, come… Eventhough you’re ugly, i’m sure you will be useful for me.”
Ugly Duckling: “Quack, quack… What a nice old lady she is… there has never been someone that ever wanted to take care of me…”
Narrator: The old lady then bring the ugly duckling into her hut, where they were greeted by the old lady’s 3 granddaughters. Her granddaughters were so excited knowing that their grandmother brought them a duckling
Old lady: “Hello children! Look what i brought for you all!”
Child1,2,3: “What granny?”
Child 1: “Is it flower?”
Child 2 : “Is it barbie?”
Child 3: “Is it prince charming?”
Old Lady: “No, no, no… Tadaaa!”
Ugly Duckling: “Quack… quack… hello there! Quack… quack…”
Child1,2,3: “Whooah!!! What an ugly duckling! Thank you granny! ”
Child 1: “Come here, come here! Let’s play!”
Child 2: “Look at how tiny she is!”
Child 3: “But why is she ugly and alone?”
Child1,2,3: “Don’t worry, we’ll accompany you.”
Old Lady: “Remember to take good care of her and don’t forget to feed her as well.”
Child1,2,3: “Yes granny!”
Narrator: Now, the ugly duckling is no longer lonely. The children always play with her. But as the time passes by, they got bored with her and even tortured her. The Old lady also didn’t care about the ugly duckling anymore, she even wanted to cook the ugly duckling!
Child 1: “You ugly duckling! Why are you so boring?”
Child 2: “Yeah! All you can do is just quacking!”
Child 3: “Yeah!! Even your quack is ugly!!!”
Child 1, 2, 3: “Huaaaa granny!!! We don’t want this ugly duckling!! We want new toooy huaaaa”
Old Lady: “Yes my dear… i’m getting bored with this ugly duckling as well. She couldn’t produce any egg! And she’s not even any good looking to eat! What should we do with her?”
Ugly Duckling: “B..bb..but… i didn’t do anything wrong… quack.. quack.. play with me, play with me! Quack quack!!”
Narrator: The poor ugly duckling kept on quacking. Her terrible voice filled the whole room, and it made the old lady as well as her granddaughters become very, very annoyed!
Child 1, 2, 3: “SHUT UP YOU UGLY DUCKLING!”
Old Lady: “Huh! I couldn’t stand it anymore, this annoying duckling. It
turns out that picking you up is a mistake! Get out of this house!”
Ugly Duckling: “B..bbb.bbut you guys were so nice to me before… quack… don’t get me out of this house… noooo!!! Quack!!”
Child 1: “Granny, why does this stupid duckling quack got even louder? It’s irritating my ear!”
Child 2: “Granny, please throw her away!!”
Child 3: “Yes granny! Please!!”
Narrator: The old lady was just about to kick the ugly duckling out from her house when the ugly duckling suddenly ran away through the opened window nearby and cry all the way out. Now, the ugly duckling travels alone, again. On her way, she saw a group of beautiful swan flapping their wings.
Ugly Duckling: “Oh God… why am i this ugly? God… i want to be as beautiful as those swans… ah… it’s no use wishing that.. it’s a wish that would never came true…”
Narrator: The ugly duckling continues to wander alone. Days turns to weeks, weeks turns to month, and on one bright day, something shocked the lonely ugly duckling.
Hunter: “HA! I got you beautiful!”
Ugly Duckling: “Huh? Haaa? What’s this thing around me?! Aaa help! Help!! Quack quack~!”

Ugly Duckling: “Quack quack… wait, didn’t he call me beautiful? Quack quack… this guy must be blind… but thank you sir, you’re the first one!! Ah, he must be very nice!”
Narrator: It turned out that the ugly duckling got caught by a hunter. What she didn’t know, is that the hunter is not a good man, and he is also a chef!
Hunter: “Hohoho! Welcome to my beautiful mansion, beautiful! Here, you could wait here… be a nice girl okaay!”
Ugly Duckling: “Whoa!!! A golden cage!! This guy is surely a nice guy! Thank you sir, thank you!! Quack!”
Narrator: The ugly duckling was fascinated by the luxurious facilities she got in the hunter’s mansion. She was being fed everyday with super delicious food that the hunter made. She doesn’t know that the hunter’s true intention is to cook her!
Hunter: “Mwahahaha! I believe this duckling is already plump enough. Huff, i can’t wait to taste it’s tender meat inside my mouth… hmmm sooo delicious!!”
Narrator: The hunter then continues to read the recipe book as he prepares to cook the ugly duckling. He forgot to lock the ugly duckling’s cage and didn’t realize that she was spying on him!
Ugly Duckling: “Oh there you are my master! Hmmm… what a nice smell! What is he going to cook next? I can’t wait quack! Oh there’s a picture! Wait… the picture somehow looks similar with someyhing… hmm… WAIT, IS THAT ME HE’S GOING TO COOK?? QUACK QUACK QUACK!!”
Hunter: “Oh hi there my dinner! Mwahahaha! Don’t run away from me!”
Ugly Duckling: “I thought you’re nice! Quack! I am sooo going to get out from here!!! Quck Quack!”
Hunter: “Hey you! Don’t run away!! Hey!! You’re my dinner!! Come back here!!”
Ugly Duckling: “Kyaaaa! Quack quack!! I must save myself!!!”
Narrator: The ugly duckling run as fast as she can. She ran soo fast and getting further from the hunter’s house. She felt very sad to be back in her lonely journey
Ugly Duckling: “Huh… there’s really no one nice to me in this world. Everyone is fake. Is this my fate, being a loner like this? Oh God…”
Narrator: While she was talking to her own self, a group of beautiful swan is playing in the nearby pond. When she passes them, suddenly…
Ugly Duckling: “Ah, those beautiful swans again… it must be nice being them, got praised by everyone in the world… not like me…”
Swan 1: “Hey beautiful, where are you going?”
Ugly Duckling: “Eh? Are you talking to me?”
Swan 2: “Who else could she be talking to? Ofcourse she’s talking to you! Hahaha”
Ugly Duckling: “But… i’m not beautiful… not like you guys…”
Swan 1: “What? Are you kidding me? Hey! Come here…”
Narrator: The swans asked the ugly duckling to come closer to them. Close enough to see her own reflection in the pond. And what appears before her surprises the ugly duckling. No, she’s no longer a ugly duckling! A beautiful white feathered swan is what she saw as her own reflection!
Swan 2: “See? Who said you’re ugly?”
Ugly Duckling: “But… i was… who… WHO’S THAT? Is.. is it really me??? Oh my god… God! You hear my prayer!!!”
Swan 1: “Hahaha you’re funny! Are you alone? If yes, you could join us!”
Ugly Duckling: “Rr…really? I could join you guys?? You don’t matter??”
Swan 2: “Ofcourse you can, why not? Hahaha come, let’s go!”
Narrator: The ugly duckling became the member of the beautiful swan’s group. She’s no longer the ugly duckling that used to be mocked by everyone. Now, everytime she’s around, everybody praised her, adoring how beautiful she is. What we can learn from this story is to be proud of who we are. Because god created us for a reason, and will never give us nothing but the best. We can also learn not to judge a book by it’s cover. Which means we must not judge people just because of their appearance, because appearance doesn’t always reflect the person they really are.
