An Ant and a Dove

Once upon a time a river ran through a green field. There lived an ant beside the stream.<>

One day the ant went to stream to drink water. While drinking water, suddenly the ant fell into the running water.<>

“Help! Help!” shouted the ant. But no one heard him.<>

A dove was sitting on a tree near the stream and saw the miserable condition of the ant. The dove felt pity.<>

Very quickly the dove broke off a wide leaf and throw nearer to the ant.<>

The little ant climbed onto the leaf. Soon the leaf struck in some reeds and the ant climbed onto the bank. What a lucky escape!<>

After a few days the ant was looking for food beside the stream.<>

He stood still hearing the cooing of a dove. The ant saw that it was the same dove that saved his life.<>

It was very happy to see the dove and wanted to show his gratefulness by waving but of no use.<>

Then to his utter horror he found a hunter carrying a bow and an arrow.<>

The hunter quietly drew took his gun and aimed at the dove.<>

Just at that moment the ant bit very seriously on the hunter’s leg.<>

So, the hunter’s aim failed and it hit a branch of the tree. The dove flapped her wings and flew off in a hurry.<>
