One day two young men are walking in a big forest.One is fat,and the other is thin.”We are good friends.We must help each other.If we meet any beast,I’ll help you,”the thin man says.“I’ll help you,too,”the fat one says.They walk on.After a while they hear a great noise.It is a big bear.It is coming this way.
The two young men run away quickly.One of them climbs up a tree,and hides among the leaves.He forgets all about his friend.What about the fat one?He is too fat to climb up a tree.So he throws himself on the ground,closes his eyes,and pretends to be dead.“The bear will think I’m dead,”he thinks to himself.
Soon the bear comes up to the fat man,and even puts its nose to his mouth and ears.The fat man holds his breath.
The bear thinks he is dead,so it goes away,because bears never touch the dead.The man in the tree comes down.With a smile he asks his friend,“The bear puts its nose so close to your ears.What does it say to you?”
The friend answers,“The bear says,‘Don’t trust your friend.He runs away from you when you need his help most.”
