    Once upon a time, Lion was very rich. He had very many cows. Every morning, he would milk them and enjoy the milk with his family.

    Hare, who had no cows of his own, started sneaking into the cattle shed long before dawn to milk lion’s cows. By the time lion arrived, the cows would produce very little milk or none at all. Lion started suspecting that someone was milking his cows and hatched a plan to catch the thief. So he decided to sleep in the cowshed to see who it was that milked his cows.

    As usual, Hare came before dawn and started milking the cows.
    “So you are the little thief!” Lion roared in anger.

    Hare did not wait to hear another word. He quickly jumped over the fence and ran very fast with the Lion in hot pursuit. Soon Lion was almost catching Hare. Just then, Hare saw a hole under a tree and dashed in. But he could not go deep inside as Lion had managed to grab his tail. Hare knew he had to do something pretty fast!

    “Wooi! You have missed my tail. You are holding a root! My tail is to the right,” Hare said loudly, hoping to trick lion.

    Immediately, Lion released Hare’s tail and grabbed a root which was near Hare’s tail. He then started pulling very hard thinking it was Hare’s tail. Soon the root gave way and Lion went tumbling backwards, a piece of root firmly held in his hand.

    Lion was very annoyed, especially when he heard Hare laughing from inside the hole. He decided to sit there and wait in till Hare got out. After all, he was not going to stay inside the hole forever, he concluded.

    By evening, the two were exhausted. Hare was also starting to panic. He was very hungry and was wondering what would happen if lion decided not to leave. Lion, on his part, also wanted to go home and feed his cows.

    As luck would have it, Lion saw Hyena limping by.
    “Come over here, Hyena,” Lion called out. “I have some work for you.”
    “I am at your service, Lion. What can I do for you?” Hyena asked as soon as he got to where the Lion was.
    “I have the thief who has been milking my cows inside this hole,” Lion said pointing at the hole. “I want you to sit here, and when he tries to get out, catch him and bring him to me,” Lion instructed as he left to go home.
    After waiting for sometime, Hare called out to Hyena, “Hey, Hyena! You were left to guard me, but can you see me?”
    “No, I can’t see you; it is too dark inside the hole, “ Hyena replied.

    “Then how can you guard me if you cannot see me, yet I can see you?” Hare asked. “Come closer and open your eyes wide. That way you will see me.”

    Hyena obliged. He got closer to the mouth of the hole opened his eyes wide. Suddenly, Hare threw soil into Hyena’s eyes and rushed out of the hole. Hyena only heard Hare’s laughter as he vanished into the bush. He was left wondering what he would tell Lion when they met.
