1. The lion king and the mouse
Once upon a time, there was a lion who was asleep. One day a little mouse started running up and down on him. As a result, the lion woke up and he put his paw on the mouse. Furthermore, he opened his jaws to swallow him in one go.
“Pardon Me Please!” pleaded the little mouse. “Forgive me!!!!. I will never repeat this mistake and I will never forget your kindness. In the future, I may be able to help you some other day.
The lion was touched by the idea of the mouse. Finally, he lifted his paw and let the mouse go.
After some days, two hunters saw the lion. First of all, they captured him and later tied him to a tree. After that hunters went to search for a wagon because they wanted to take him to the zoo.
At that moment only, the little mouse was passing by. On seeing the lion, he ran up to him and crunched away the ropes that bound him and finally the lion got free.
