Wise Cock And Wicked Fox

This is one of the awesome short stories for children. It was a bright evening and the sun was sinking on a glorious world. A wise old cock flew into a tree to roost. He flapped his wings three times and crowed loudly. The powerful crow of the cock was heard across the forest and it also got the attention of a hungry fox who was searching for food.

The fox came near the tree where the cock was standing and he thought of a plan to bring the cock down. Just as the cock was about to sleep, he saw the red fox standing down. You may also like to read, The Little Red Hen.

“Have you heard of a wonderful news?” cried the fox in a very joyous and excited manner. “What news?” asked the cock calmly. The cock was afraid of the fox and he knew that the fox was here with some wicked plans! “Your family and mine and all other animals have agreed to forget their differences, and live in peace and friendship from now and forever. Just think of it! I cannot simply wait to embrace you! Do come down, dear friend and let us celebrate this moment,” said the fox.

“How grand!” said the cock. “I am certainly delighted by the news!” But he spoke in an absent way, and stretching upon tiptoes, seemed to be looking at something afar off!

“What is it you see?” asked the fox anxiously. The wise cock answered, “Why? It looks to me a couple of dogs are headed this way. They must have heard the good news and…” But the fox did not wait to hear more. He started to run away. “Wait!” cried the cock. “Why are you running? The dogs are your friends now!”

“Of course, yes!” aswered the fox. “But they might have not heard the news. Besides, I had a very important errand that I had almost forgotten about!” The cock smiled as he buried his head in his feathers and went to sleep. He had succeeded in outwitting an enemy that day! Also, read The Sly Fox.
