Greedy Crow Fairy Tale
There was a crow lived at the forest. One day he found a piece of meat on the ground. He picked it up and flew to the top of a tree and started to eat his meat.
A little bird passed by in front of him. She was carrying a dead rat, and was flying very fast.
The crow called to her, and said:
-‘Hey! Where did you get that dead rat that you have?
The small bird did not answer and she flew on her way. When the crow saw that she paid no attention to him, he was very angry; and called out:
-‘Hey Miss Bird! Stop and give me a piece of that rat, or I will seize you and take the whole rat for myself!’
But the small bird paid no attention to him. At last, full of greed and rage, the crow was determined to have the rat by any means. He left the meat he was eating, and flew after the little bird. The bird was faster than crow so he could not catch her.
While the crow was chasing the bird a eagle saw the crow’s meat and at once seized it in his claws and flew away.
Although the crow pursued the bird a long time, he could not overtake her, so at last he gave up his attempt, and flew back to the tree where he had left his meat.
But when he returned to the tree, he found the meat was gone. He was almost ready to die of disappointment and hunger.
By and by the eagle which had taken the meat passed by the tree again. He called to the crow, and said to him:
-‘Mr. Crow, do you know that I am the one who took your meat? If not I’m telling you now, and I am very sorry for you. If you can dare come and fight me.’
The crow did not answer the eagle, for he was so tired and afraid very much.
