A donkey was returning from the market with its master.
It was a very long journey through a forest.
At noon the master ate the food he had brought along, unloaded the donkey, gave some hay and settled down under a tree for a nap.
The donkey started eating the hay.
A fox got the smell of the meat in the load. It approached the load to steal a portion of the meat.
"What are you doing there?" asked the donkey.
"My meal is there in the load you were carrying," said the fox. "Let me have it."
"Don't touch the load," said the donkey angrily. "Wait till the master gets up." continued the donkey, "He'll give it to you if it is yours."
The fox thought of a plan. He placed few stones over a big rock, which created a shadow on the ground.
Pointing at the shadow the fox shouted, "Look at that shadow. A Lion is hiding behind that rock!"
"Help me, help me, fox", pleaded the donkey.
"I'm so hungry. I don't have the strength to fight the lion." continued the fox, "First give me my meal, then I will help you."
That was enough for the donkey to suspect the fox. It looked around and saw what was casting the shadow.
"I'll teach you a lesson", thought the donkey...
The donkey asked the fox where the lion was. The clever fox told him that there was a shadow behind the tree. The donkey started to cry again and again. After some times his master got up. The donkey told the master that there was a lion behind the tree. when the master saw behind the tree he foound that there was nothing. The fox ran away.
The donkey thought about a plan, and continued " I can give you meal in one condition that first you have to hear my song". On that the fox thought, " I am ready to do any thing for my meal ". He replied " Ok, I am ready". The donkey started singing in his most awful song and his master woke up. On seeing the fox, the master rushed towards the fox with a stick lying beside him. The fox got scared and ran away into the nearby bush. Afterwards, the donkey was very happy on rescuing his masters possession. Finally, the master and his donkey happily went on their path towards their village.
No. The fox did not suceed in getting the meat. The donkey told the fox to take the meat. The fox went to his den to get ready for his meal. He then started to walk back to where he had met the donkey. As soon as the donkey saw the fox approaching ,he shook his master awake. The master saw the fox coming towards his load where he had kept his food. He took a stick and hid behind some bushes. When the fox came near the load, he beat the fox to death. Thus,the master did not lose his food and the wicked fox was dead.
Donky said,"Ok let the lion come we will offer your meal to him as token of our friendship." The fox got the message and walked away quietly.
The donkey taught the fox a lesson.
