BOY WHO CRIED 'WOLF'
Once there lived a shepherd boy who had to look
after a flock of sheep. One day, he felt bored
and decided to play a trick on the villagers.
He shouted," Help! Wolf! Wolf!"The
villagers heard his cries and rushed out of
the village to help the shepherd boy. When they
reached him, they asked, " Where is the
wolf?"The shepherd boy laughed loudly,
"Ha, ha, ha! I fooled all of you. I was
only playing a trick on you."A few days
later, the shepherd boy played this trick again.
Again he cried,"
Help! Help! Wolf! Wolf!" Again, the villagers
rushed up the hill to help him and again they
found that boy had tricked them. They were very
angry with him for being so naughty.Then, some
time later, a wolf went into the field. The
wolf attacked one sheep, and then another and
another. The shepherd boy ran towards the village
shouting," Help! Help! Wolf! Help!, somebody!"The
villagers heard his cries but they laughed because
they thought it was boy’s another trick.
The Wolf killed many sheep and attacked the
boy. He realized his fault but it was too late.

and the Mouse
A Mouse running over his face awakened a Lion
from sleep. Rising up angrily, he caught him
and was about to kill him. Then the Mouse piteously
"If you would only
spare my life, I would be sure to repay your
kindness." The Lion laughed at him but
allowed him go. It happened shortly after this
that some hunters, who bound him by strong ropes
to the ground, caught the Lion. The Mouse, recognizing
his roar, came and gnawed the rope with his
teeth, and set him free, exclaiming:
the idea of my ever being able to help you,
never expecting to receive from me any repayment
of your favor; Now you know that it is possible
for even a Mouse to confer benefits on a Lion."
MORAL: It is possible
for even a Mouse to confer benefits on a Lion.
