Read the story.
One day a lion is sleeping in the jungle. A mouse runs in front of the lion. The lion wakes up.
"What are you doing here?", the lion is angry. "I am so sorry, sir", the mouse is scared. The lion is hungry, but the mouse says:"Don't eat me. I can help you one day."
"That's funny ", the lion says. I am big and you are so little. How can you help me? But the lion feels good. He is not angry any more and lets the mouse run away.
One year later the lion is walking in the jungle. A net falls over him and the lion can't walk. He roars for help:
" Heeelp!" and the little mouse hears him and runs to help. "Just wait. I can help you now." The mouse chews the net and makes a big hole. The lion is free. "Thank you my little friend" , says the lion."You are little but you are very kind."
