The Deer and the Wolf

A fable by Nicholas DiCristo

There was once a wolf who was very hurt and all alone in the forest. The wolf cried, "Someone, please, help me!". A deer then approached him and promised to help the hurt wolf on one circumstance. The wolf may not hurt it. So, the wolf agreed. So the wolf and the deer trotted back to the deer's home. When they got to the house the deer fixed up the wolf some food. "Oh, thank you for not abandoning me in that horrid forest", said the wolf. "You're welcome" replied the deer.


Later that day the deer asked what on him hurt the most. "My shoulder" the wolf said. Well I can fix that easily said the deer. Soon enough the deer fixed up the wound. "May I stay here the night so I can get some good rest before going back in those woods?" asked the wolf. "Absolutely" replied the deer. And so the deer went to sleep. But little did the deer know that the wolf was going to gobble the deer up in her sleep. But right before the wolf was going to pounce on her, the wolf noticed it was a dummy. And that the deer was long gone. On that day the wolf learned that you shouldn't hurt the ones that care for you.
