“Weeks passed

and the little Rabbit grew very old and shabby

but the Boy loved him just as much.

 

He loved him so hard

that he loved all his whiskers off

and the pink lining to his ears turned grey

and his brown spots faded.

 

He even began to lose his shape

and he scarcely looked like a rabbit any more

except to the Boy.

 

To him he was always beautiful

and that was all that the little Rabbit cared about.

 

He didn’t mind how he looked to other people

because the nursery magic had made him Real

and when you are Real

shabbiness doesn’t matter.”
