The Boy who cried 'Wolf'

The Boy who cried 'Wolf'

Once there was a shepherd boy. The boy was short and had brown hair. He had to look after a flock of sheep. One day, he felt unhappy  and decided to play a prank on the other people in the village. He shouted loudly, “Help! Wolf! Wolf!”
The villagers heard his cries and sprinted as fast as they could out of the village to help the shepherd boy. When they got to him, they asked, “Where is the wolf?”
The shepherd boy laughed loudly, “Ha, Ha, Ha! I tricked you all. I was only playing a prank on you all.”
A few days later, the sun was shining brightly and the young shepherd boy was bored again. The shepherd boy played the trick again.
He cried, “Help! Help! Wolf! Wolf!” Again, the villagers moved really fast up the hill to help him and again they found that the boy had tricked them. They were disappointed with him for being a naughty boy.A few days later, there was a bad weather. The boy watched a wolf actually walk into the field. The wolf attacked one sheep, and then another and another. It was bad. The shepherd boy ran towards the village saying loudly, “Help! Help! Wolf! Help! Somebody!”
The villagers heard his cries but they laughed because they thought it was just another prank.
The boy ran to the nearest villager and said, “A wolf is attacking the sheep. I lied before, but this time it is true!”
Finally, the villagers went to look. It was true. They could see the wolf running away and many dead sheep lying on the bright green grass.

We may not believe someone who often tells lies, even when he tells the truth that is why you shouldn’t lie because that thing might actually happen and people won’t believe you.
