Moral(s) of the story: self worth

Once upon a time, there lived a wolf in the jungle. One day, he was very hungry, and he had nothing to eat. He went to find something to eat for dinner. After a while, he saw a boy feeding in a field, so he went up to him and said, “Hey boy, I am going to eat you!” The boy was surprised and asked him, “Who are you?” The wolf said, “I am a wolf, and I am looking for a good dinner.” The boy asked, “Which type of wolf are you? Because you look like a dog!” To which the wolf said, “No, I am not a dog. I am a wolf.” Then, the boy said, “Well, if you are a wolf then stand at the bottom of the hill and open your jaw wide. Then I will run down the hill and jump straight into your mouth.” The wolf agreed.


So, the wolf stood at the bottom of the hill and opened his mouth wide. The boy climbed to the top of the hill. The boy ran down the hill rapidly and hit the wolf as hard as he could. The wolf rolled over and was knocked with the blow, while the boy ran off for home. The wolf was fooled. He then realized that why would anyone jump into his mouth with his own will. He went ahead to look for his dinner.


Then, he saw a horse walking in a field, chewing the grass. The wolf went to the horse and said, “Mr. Horse, Mr. Horse, I am going to eat you!” The horse asked, “Who are you?”. “I am a wolf”, replied the wolf. The horse said, “You look like a dog.” The wolf denied and said, “I am not a dog, I am a wolf.” The horse then said, “If you think you are then it is fine. I am not very fat yet so you can start eating me from my tail meanwhile I will be eating some more grass.”


The wolf excitedly went up to the horse from behind. As soon as he tried to jump on the horse from behind, the horse knocked him with his leg as hard as he could. The wolf rolled over, while the horse ran off. The wolf again thought, “Well, I was a fool. Who eats a horse from his tail?”


He further saw a pig coming towards him. He went to the pig and said, “Mr. Pig, Mr. Pig, I am going to eat you.” The pig asked him the same question, “Who are you? I would like to know before you could eat me.” The wolf replied, “I am a Wolf and not a dog”. This time the wolf clarified before only that he was not a dog. So, the Pig said, “Okay, you sit down on my back. First I will give you a ride and then you can eat me.”


The wolf sat down on the pig’s back. The pig carried him straight into the village. All the dogs in the village saw the wolf and rushed towards them and started teasing him. The dogs started laughing at him and made fun of him. The wolf felt very bad and he started crying and went back into the forest. The silly wolf was never seen again.


Moral:

You do not need to prove yourself to anyone. Know your worth.
