The Lion and The Mouse

    When he was awakened by a tiny Mouse running across his body, a mighty Lion was sleeping in his lair. The Lion then grabbed the frightened mouse with his huge paws and opened his mouth to swallow him directly. "Please, King," begged the Mouse, "Spare me this time and of course I will never forget your kindness. Someday I may be able to repay you". The Lion thought that it was such an amusing idea that he let the poor creature go.

   Sometimes later the Lion was caught in a net laid by some hunters. Despite his great strength, the Lion could not break free. Soon the forest echoed with angry load roars. The Little Mouse heard the Lion and ran to see what was wrong. As soon as he succeeded to make the Lion free "There!" said the Mouse proudly, "You laughed at me when I promised to repay your kindness, but now you know that even a tiny Mouse can help a mighty Lion."
