Jack and Alex were friends. On a holiday they went into a forest. They were enjoying the beauty of nature. Suddenly they saw a bear coming at them. They were frightened.
Alex who knew climbing trees, ran up to a tree and climbed up quickly. He did not think of Jack.
Jack did not know tree climbing.
Jack thought for a second. He had heard animals do not prefer dead bodies. He fell to the ground and held his breath. The bear sniffed him and thought he was dead. So, he went away.
Alex asked Jack,” What did the bear whisper into your ears?”
Jack replied, “The bear asked me to keep away from friends like you” and went on his way.
MORAL : A friend in need is a friend indeed.
