The Lion woke up with the noise and got disturbed. He was angry and said “Who woke me up ?”. Saw the little mouse and said I will catch you. He caught the mouse with a great big smack.
Angry Lion roared and said ‘I’m going to eat you!’. The Mouse cried and requested ‘No, no, please don’t!’, ‘Be kind to me and one day I’ll help you.’ Lion roared and laughed very hard and said ’ ‘I’m a lion! You’re a mouse! What can you do?’ Little mouse ran away happily and thanked the Lion and Promised that he will be of some help to him.
