One afternoon a month ago, I was very hungry. As I didnt cook anything to eat lunch,
I decided to go to a cafe about a hundred meters from my boarding house.
I changed my trousers and shirt then left for the cafe myself because my roommate
hadnt come yet from the school. As sson as I got to the cafe, I ordered the meal with fresh
vegetable soup that seemed very delicious in the hot day, and also a glass of tea. When they
were served, I ate up eagerly the meal and soup and drank the tea. I was satisfied and it was
the time to pay. I grapped my trousers pocked and I was schocked. My hands didnt feel
there was any wallet there. I felt so embarrassed that I didnt dare to see the faces of the
customers. My body stayed still on the chair and began sweating.
I tried to control myself in front of the people. I collected my courage to come to the
cashier to say something. Feeling uneasy, I told her that I left my wallet in the other trousers
at the boarding house and promised to take it and come back soon. Some customers looked
at me. I thought I must hide my face. She nooded and said it naot a matter.
Finally I ran to the house and got back with the money. I gave it to her and came out
of the cafe. What a relief! It should not happen again to me.

There was once a mouse traveling through the forest. Before he knew, it was trotting
over the paws of a sleeping lion. The lion woke up and grabbed the mouse in his sharp claws.
Please dont eat me! begged the mouse. Ill never bother you again. And who
knows? I may be able to do you a good turn one day.
The lion laughed, Youre too small to help a big lion! But I like your spirit. Run along
now, and stay out of trouble in the future. The grateful mouse scampered off.
Some time later, the lion ran into a trap and found himself caught in a strong net. The
