A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed

There were two friends. They lived in a village. They were very intimate with each other.

One day the two friends were walking through the jungle. They promised that they will not leave each other at time of danger.

Suddenly, they saw a bear passing through them. Both of them got afraid.

One of them knew how to climb up a tree. He climbed up a nearby tree without thinking about his friend. The other was fatty and did not know how to climb up a tree. But he knew that a bear does not touch a dead body.

So, he fell flat on the ground like a dead person arid stopped breathing. The bear came near him, smelt him all over the body and thought him to be a dead man.

So,without touching him, it went away slowly and gently. The friend who was on the tree saw everything. He got down from the tree, went to his friend and asked him eagerly, “Oh! Dear, what did the bear whisper to your ear?”

In reply, the friend said, “The bear advised me not to trust a friend who leaves his friend alone in time of danger.”
