Lion and the Mouse Story begins:

Once upon a time, there was a big forest and there lived many animals like monkeys, elephants, Zebra, Mouse and the King of the Jungle. 

One hot sunny afternoon the Big mighty Lion thought of taking some rest. So he decided to sleep under the tree. After some time there came a little mushy mouse who started playing with this Lion. 

The little mouse ran up the lion’s neck and slid down his back. The mouse didn’t know that the lion was the King and very Big :). 

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.’ The lion roared and laughed very hard and said ’ ‘I’m a lion! You’re a mouse! What can you do?’ The little mouse ran away happily and thanked the Lion and Promised that he will be of some help to him.

Story continues:

The Next morning, the mouse was walking in the forest. He saw there were few hunters roaming in the forest. 

Ignoring them Little Mouse started walking again. After walking a few miles, He reached the Lions House and saw that the lion was not in his Den. After some time, Little Mouse heard a big roar. 

He started searching here and there and found that the King of the Jungle is tied to the tree. Lion has been captured with a Net by the Hunters. The lion is roaring and crying for help. So, The mouse decided to help the lion. Little Mouse thought a lot and came up with an idea. So, He started working on a plan to set the lion free. He planned to chew and open the rope. So was trying to convince the Lion not to cry. 

The mouse started chewing the rope as fast as he can. Before the hunters came back he decided to free the lion. Finally, he started chewing most of the rope and the lion was able to come out of the trap. They both ran off from that place.
