20. The wolf and the fox

  A long time ago, a wolf and a fox lived together. However, because the wolf was stronger, the fox always did as the wolf commanded. The fox always wished to be free of the wolf.

  The next day the fox and the wolf went to the farmhouse. They ate beef at the butcher shop. The wolf ate greedily but the fox ate little by little, walking back and forth by an escape hole. With a rustling sound the owner came back. Just then the fox quickly escaped through the hole.
