🦁🐭 The Lion & the Mouse 🐭🦁 his great head resting on his paws. A little Mouse came upon him unexpectedly, and in her fright and haste to get away, ran across the Lion's nose. Roused from his nap, the Lion laid his huge paw angrily on the tiny creature to kill her.
A Lion lay asleep in the forest,
"Spare me!" begged the Mouse. "Please let me go and someday I will repay you."
The Lion was amused to think that a Mouse could ever help him. But he was generous and finally let the Mouse go.
Some days later, while stalking his prey in the forest, the Lion was caught in a hunter's net. Unable to free himself, he filled the forest with his angry roar. The Mouse knew the voice and quickly found the Lion struggling in the net. Running to one of the great ropes that bound him, she gnawed it until it split apart, and soon the Lion was free.
"You laughed when I said I would repay you," said the Mouse. "Now you see that even a Mouse can help a Lion."
Moral of the Story: A kindness is never wasted.
