NARRATOR: Once  upon a time a Lion was taking a nap, when a little mouse began running up and down upon him; this soon woke up  the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him.



MOUSE: I am sorry!.   Forgive me this time, and I will never forget it. I promise to do something for you in return some of these days.



LION: Ha, ha, ha, yeah sure!. You can go.



NARRATOR: A few days later, some hunters caught the king of the jungle.



HUNTER 1: Hey, look what we got here!.  This lion is so big and strong. Let´s take him to our king.



HUNTER 2: Yes, but let`s tie him first to that tree while we go to get a wagon to carry him on.



NARRATOR: Just then the little mouse was passing  by.



MOUSE: Da, da, da, Oh, what do we have here?. It´s my friend, the lion!.



LION: It`s me, help me please before the hunters come back.



MOUSE: I will. I haven`t forgotten the promise I made to you one day.



NARRATOR: So the mouse started eating the ropes.



MOUSE: You are free now. A few days  ago you laughed thinking that I couldn`t do something for you in return for what you did for me. Now it is time that you know that little mice are grateful and keep their promises.



LION: I am sorry, my friend. Thank you for what you did for me now. I will never laugh at the promises made by the little ones, I know that when the time comes, they will not forget them.

A Lion lay asleep in the forest, his great head resting on his paws. A timid 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.


“Spare me!” begged the poor Mouse. “Please let me go and some day I will surely repay you.”


The Lion was much 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 the toils of a hunter’s net. Unable to free himself, he filled the forest with his angry roaring. 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 parted, 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.”
