The Lion In Love
This is one of the Aesop’s fables stories about a lion who used to live in a jungle near a village. One day, he sees a very beautiful maiden. Immediately, he falls in love with her. He goes straight to the girl who is standing with her pets and said, “I really like you! Will you marry me?” The girl is scared of the lion and she runs for her life.
The lion thinks that the girl is too shy. So, he goes to see the girl’s father. Her father is a woodcutter. “I want to marry your daughter,” he says to the woodcutter. The woodcutter says, “No, my daughter is afraid of you!” “I will not eat her. I love her!” says the lion. “But you have big teeth,” says the woodcutter and closes the door. The lion has no choice and he goes away. Also, read The Lion King.
