The Monkey and The Crab
Long ago, at the foot of a mountain, lived a crab. On a warm spring day, the crab walked leisurely along a nearby river. Suddenly a big rice ball dropped in front of her. “Oh my God! What a good thing I found”, she said to herself.
Then a greedy monkey came. He wanted to have the rice ball, so he said, “Hey, let’s trade the rice ball with my fruit seed. This seed is better than that rice ball. When you eat the rice ball, it disappears, but if you put this seed on the ground, it will grow and produce a lot of fruits.” The crab agreed to exchange the rice ball. Then she took the seed home and planted it.
Soon the seed grew into a small bud and became a big tree. It made a lot of red fruits. The crab wanted to eat the fruit, but she could not climb the tree. Then the monkey came again, climbing the tree and eating the fruits. The crab begged the monkey to pick some for her and her kind. Yet, the selfish monkey took a hard green fruit and threw it to the crab. She was smashed very hard.
The crabs kids started to cry and their noise attracted other animals. They soon found out what happened. The King of the animals decided to give the monkey a punishment.
