There was a mighty lion that lived in a beautiful forest filled with many marvellous birds and animals. One day, after lunch, the lion felt very sleepy and decided to doze off under a big tree full of shade.
A tiny mouse brushed past the lion’s nose in his attempt to escape from a hawk, which interrupted the lion’s nap and made him furious. He caught the mouse by its tail. The mouse was terrified and feared that the lion would hurt him now.
The mouse pleaded to the lion not to hurt him and set him free. He made a promise to return the favour by helping out the lion one day whenever he needed any help. The lion was not convinced that he would ever need the tiny mouse’s help, but decided to set the mouse free as a kind gesture.
After a few weeks, the lion was wandering through the jungle and suddenly fell into a net laid by evil hunters. The lion was trapped and roared out, which the tiny mouse heard. He helped the lion by cutting out the net with his sharp teeth and rescued the lion. The lion and the mouse then became good friends and looked out for each other.
