The Lion and the Mouse
Some field mice were running hither and thither, playing their own game. They were so taken with their game that they did not notice the sleeping lion. In the course of the chase one mouse accidentally ran over the lion's paw, waking him from his slumber. The lion was cross and caught the little mouse by the tail. 'Please don't kill me' squealed the mouse 'I am so sorry'. The lion had intended to crush the little beast, but he tempered his mood and let the creature go. A few days later the lion was out hunting when he fell into a poacher's trap. Ropes wound around him and the terrified lion knew he could do nothing but wait for the hunter and his doom. But then he heard a little squeaking, and as he looked up he saw the mouse he had let go gnawing at the ropes. 'You were kind to me' said the mouse 'and now I will be kind to you'. The mouse gnawed through the ropes and the lion was able to escape.
