Do you ever see lion? Of course we do, although only in some television all right?. Lion is the most popular animal as the strongest one. Lion called as the king of forest which eats meat, so that it is named as carnivora animal.
Now here it is. The story about the strong lion with another animal which we know it as a small one and we call it ‘Jerry’ in some film. What is it? Yeah you are right. It is mouse, the little mouse.
In some forest in Indonesia, many trees grew up well and many wild animals lived. There was a big lion which was so strong. Some day, the strong big lion was sleeping under a tree because he had just eaten and being too satisfied. Then, some little mouse was walking and crossing the head of the lion but, the little mouse did not be aware of that. He continued to walk there. At the moment , suddenly the strong big lion awakened up on being so angry and immadiately catched the mouse and held it in his hand.
“ Arghhhh…. how dare you are, annoying my rest and awake me up from my sleeping ! . Are you bored to live , the Little mouse? You make me angry , you know?!”, said the lion.
The little mouse was so scared , she knew that too brave and to silly to fight. She understood that she had just made some big mistake, awakening the lion from his sleeping.
“ I..I am so..sor..sorry,Majesty . For….forgive me please”, said the little mouse scaredly trying to ask forgiveness to the king of forest, the strong lion.
“ I still have children to guard and save , Majesty..forgive , me please..”, continued the mouse. Finally the lion felt piety to the mouse. Holding his anger, he let the mouse free.
Day after day, time pass away. The lion and all animals lived peacefully in the forest. Until some day , some hunters came there with a gun and made all animals scattered and scared. Some giraffes and gorillas were catched and prisoned. They hunted the animals cruelly.
Eventually, when the lion was taking rest and was awareless, the hunters shooted the lion and made the lion slept. After that, they held the lion with a net.
“ Ha..ha..ha, it is unbelievable. We can catch such this strong big lion, my Brotha..we must be the famous one after we are home ”, said one of the hunters.
“yes, we are lucky..”, answered the else.
Hearing some voice, the lion awaked up. He had just known that he was in a danger. He tried to break free but unfortunately he could do nothing except screamed as loudly as possible, hoping some help would come for him.
Then , the mouse knew the incident, and came to the spot to see how the lion was being. With her courage, the mouse came closer to the lion and whispered to the lion,
“ Lion, i remember your kindness last day..you let me back to my children, so today i wanna regard you, and help you to go out from this net ”.
“ How can you do it? ”, the lion asked.
“ I will bite the rope of this net until it is broken and you can be free from this prisoning net..calm down, Majesty..”,
Step by step, the mouse broke the net until the lion could go out from there. He thanked to the mouse and went away from the hunters. Being aware of that, the hunters were dissapointed cause the lion was not in their net. Finally, they-the lion and the mouse – were being friends since that time.
From this story, we can pick some wisdom. What is it? It is; that we may not insult another one because every one has superiority each other.^_^
