All the animals in the forest were happy because they heard their cruel king was
sick. The lion did not come out of his cave as he usually. He sent out a message to his subjects
that he wanted to bid them goodbye before he died.

Why does he wants to see us for? asked the deer? Maybe he will give each
one of us a share of his wealth.
All the animals went to see their king lion except the fox. He sat on a tree and
watched the animals go inside the cave. He waited for them to come out, but no one did. Later
that afternoon, the king lion appeared at the entrance of the cave. When he saw the fox, he
said, Why did you not come to see me? Dont you want to share with the other animals what I
have given them?
I really want to visit you, my king said the fox. But I am sure your home is
crowded now. All the animals have gone inside your cave and no one has come out yet.
Ha! Ha! Ha! Laughed the king lion. They all wanted to stay inside the cave. You
will be staying there for a long time, if you will wait for them to come out.
He went away happily because he was still well and alive. He knew well why not
a single animal came out of the cave. Our king lion thinks he is wise but he cannot deceive me
with his trick. He will never catch me alive.
With the decision never to come back again, the fox went away as fast as he
could from the lions cave.
