Lion and the mouse

Once when a lion was asleep, a little mouse began running up and down upon him. This soon wakened the lion,who placed his huge paw upon him and opened his jaws to swallow him.
"Pordon , o king" cried the little mouse "Forgive me for this time.I shall never repeat it and I shall never forget your kindness. And who knows,but I may be able to do you a good turn one of these day?"
The lion was so tickled at the idea of the mouse being able to help him ,that he lifted up his paw and let him go.
Sometime later a few hunters captured the king and tied him to a tree . While they went in search of wagon to carry him on.Just then the little mouse happened to pass by,and seeing the sad plight in which the lion was ,ran up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the king of the beasts. "Was I not wright?" said the little mouse,very happy to help the lion.
