The Metamorphosis..

There was a couple who liked antiques and pottery and especially teacups.

One day in an antique shop they saw a beautiful teacup.

They said, "May we see that? We`ve never seen one quite so beautiful."

As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke.

"You don`t know," it said. "I haven`t always been a teacup….

There was a time when I was red and I was clay.

My master took me and rolled me and patted me over and over, and I yelled out, "leave me alone", but he only smiled, "Not yet.

"Then I was placed on a spinning wheel," the teacup said, "and suddenly I was spun around and round and round.

Stop it! I`m getting dizzy!” I screamed.

But the master only nodded and said, `Not yet.`

Then he put me in the oven. I never had felt such a heat.

I could read his lips as he shook his head, `Not yet.

`Finally the door opened, he put me on the shelf, and I began to cool.

`There, that`s better,` I said. And he brushed and painted me all over.

The fumes were horrible.. `Stop it, stop it!` I cried.

He only nodded, `Not yet.`

Then suddenly he put me back into the oven, not like the first one.

This was twice as hot and I knew I would suffocate.

I begged. I pleaded. I screamed. I cried.

All the time I could see him through the opening nodding his head saying, `Not yet.

`Then I knew there wasn`t any hope. I was ready to give up. But the door opened and he took me out and placed me on the shelf. An hour later he handed me a mirror and said, `Look at yourself. And I did. I said, `That`s not me; that couldn`t be me. It`s beautiful. I`m beautiful.`
