A Donkey is walking through the forest one day. He is feeling sad because the other animals always

tease

him.

One day, a donkey was walking in the forest. He felt very sad because the other animals always made fun of him.

I look too weak. A lion looks very strong. I wish I were a Lion. Then the other animals wouldn’t

me anymore.

Donkey:

I look too weak to help the wind. The lion is so strong. If only I were a lion. Then the other animals didn’t dare to make fun of me anymore.

The Donkey keeps talking to himself while walking. Then he steps on something. He stops to look.

The donkey talks to itself as it walks. Then he stepped on a ball of something. He stopped to take a closer look.

Oh my goodness! It’s a Lion! Please don’t kill me, Mr. Lion. My meat is no good. I will be your slave. Please! Please! Please! Just this once, don’t kill me!

Oh, my God! Mr. Lion, please don’t kill me. My meat is not delicious. I will be your slave. Come on! Come on! Come on! Just spare me this time, don’t kill me!”

The Donkey closes his eyes in fright and is shaking all over. But there is no answer from the Lion. The Donkey becomes

curious

and carefully opens his eyes. The Lion is still there, but it does not move at all. The Donkey steps closer to the Lion.

The donkey closed its eyes in fright and trembled. But the lion didn’t make a sound. The donkey was curious and fixed his eyes on it. The lion was still there, but it was motionless. So the donkey slowly approached the lion.

Hey, it’s just a Lion’s skin. Jeez! Thank goodness! But who left it here? Oh, that’s not important. Let me see.

Donkey:

Hi, but a lion’s skin. Oh, my God! Thank God! Who put lionskins here? Oh, that’s not important. I’ll have to take a closer look.

The Donkey looks at the Lion’s skin carefully.

The donkey looked carefully at the lion’s skin.

It has a head, a body, legs, and a tail. It has everything. It even has paws and sharp teeth. It looks real. This is

fantastic

! I will try it on.

There is a head, there is a body, and there are legs and a tail. All parts are complete. There are even claws and sharp teeth. It looks like the real thing. That’s great! I must try it on.

The Donkey puts on the Lion’s skin and goes to a nearby

pond

to look into the water.

The donkey put on a lion’s skin and went to a nearby pond to look in the mirror.

Wow! I look like a real Lion. What can I do with this?

Wow! I look like a real lion. What can I do with a lion’s skin?
