Once there was a slave in Rome. His master was very cruel. He ran away to a forest. He went into a cave to live there. He slept in the cave. Suddenly he woke up to hear the roar of a lion. He saw a lion there.

The lion was limping. The slave saw a thorn in the lion’s paw. He pulled it out. The lion felt relief. Both became friends.

One day, the slave was caught by his master’s men. He ordered him to be thrown before a hungry lion. When the slave was brought before the lion, the lion did not kill him. It was the same lion. The lion licked his feet. All were surprised at this strange sight. The slave was set free. The lion was given to him as a reward.

Moral: Kindness never goes unrewarded.
