When first the Fox saw the Lion he was terribly
frightened, and ran away and hid himself in the wood.
Next time however he came near the King of Beasts he
stopped at a safe distance and watched him pass by. The
third time they came near one another the Fox went
straight up to the Lion and passed the time of day with
him, asking him how his family were, and when he should
have the pleasure of seeing him again; then turning his tail,
he parted from the Lion without much ceremony.
Moral Lesson: Familiarity breeds contempt.
