Story

"As You Sow, So You Will Reap" by Aesop- When the King of the Jungle fell ill every animal except the fox came to visit him. Being an enemy of the fox, the wolf told the King that the fox was nowhere to be seen. Enraged, the King had the fox brought to him to ask him why the fox hadn't visited him. The fox told the king that he was not unaware of the King's illness, he was searching for a doctor to heal him. The fox then explained that he had found that doctor and the doctor told him that only a wolf's pelt would cure the King's illness. The King then killed the wolf that had ratted out the fox and wore his pelt. The moral of the story is you reap what you sow because the wolf had died since he ratted out the fox.
