Lion and the Mouse

The Lion and the Mouse

One day a lion was waken from his afternoon nap by a group of mice scurrying all about him. Swat! went his huge paw upon one the little creatures. The mouse pleaded for mercy from the stately beast. The lion took compassion upon the tiny mouse and released him.

A few days later, the lion became trapped in a hunter's net. His roars made the whole forest tremble. The little mouse, whose life was spared, approached the lion in the snare and used his sharp little teeth to gnaw the strong ropes until the lion was free.

Moral of the story: One good turn deserves another.
