Story for HSC Exam

The Lion and the mouse
A mouse and a lion lived in a forest. One day the lion was sleeping in a cave. The mouse was playing nearby. The lion caught hold of the mouse. He became so angry that he wanted to kill the mouse. The mouse became very much frightened. But he did not lose heart.
He said to the lion, O king of the forest,  I am a very tiny creature. I made a great mistake, please forgive me this time. I may be of some help to you any time. Hearing this, the lion smiled and let the mouse go. Days, months and years passed by. One night, the mouse heard the roar of lion. The mouse went to the place from where the sound was coming. Having reached there he saw the lion trapped in a hunter net.
The net was too difficult for the lion to break. The mouse gave his identity and requested him not to make any sound.
The mouse began to cut the net with his sharp teeth. The lion was freed before dawn. The lion expressed his gratitude to the mouse.
