97 The Lion and the Fox Who were Afraid of the Mouse
The ray of the warm sunlight told us that it was spring. A lion was sleeping peacefully in the forest.
While the lion was fast asleep, a mouse went on top of the lion. The bold mouse played happily on top of the lion. "Yuppie! This is really fun." The mouse ran around thumping and stomping here and there.
The lion was not able to sleep with all the racket. The lion knew that there was someone on top of him. So, the lion made a surprise attack and rolled on the ground.
And the mouse fell over. When the lion saw the mouse he was relieved and said, "Whew! It was only a mouse."
However, far away a fox had seen the scene. The fox laughed mockingly to the lion and said, "You're as big as a mountain and you're afraid of the mouse. You're a coward!" The fox kept making fun of the Lion.
Finally the lion spoke, "I wasn't afraid of the mouse. I was only shocked to find a bold enough animal not afraid to run around on top of a lion." When the fox heard this he quietly left.
