THE LION and The MOUSE
A lion was sleeping one day when a little mouse climbed up his face. The little mouse ran up and down on his face . The mouse woke the lion up and the lion got very angry .
He caught the mouse and said : “ What are you doing over my face?”. He opened his big mouth to eat the mouse.
“Oh, do not kill me ,Mr. Lion .” said the mouse . “ I didn’t mean to woke you up. Let me go.”
“ No, I will not let you go.” said the lion.
The mouse was afraid of the lion and said “ If you let me go, I’ll do something for you later.”
This made the lion laugh. “ What a joke! well you are too little to eat , so I will let you go this time , but don’t come here again.” Said the lion. He let the mouse go.
While the mouse was running away it said “ thank you kind lion, I will not forget your kindness .”
One day a hunter caught the lion. The hunter tied him to a tree and he went to get his car to carry him away .
The lion roared so loud that the little mouse heard him.
“That lion is in trouble I will help him .” It said and it ran to the lion.
When the mouse saw the lion , he said “ Mr. Lion, be quiet, I’ll set you free ”.
“ You are not strong enough to help me !” said the lion hopelessly.
“I’m strong enough to help you. Don’t worry !” said the mouse.
The mouse chewed the rope hard, so it tore apart the rope. Finally , he saved te lion.
