The fox and the crow

The fox and the crow is the story we will tell this time. We will see who will succeed better thinking in reaching its food…Is it the fox that owns the land or is it the crow that owns the sky …

Let’s start reading the following lines to know which one of them is better in this story…

The fox and the crow

Once upon a time there was a faraway land called “the land of nature”…  This land was famous with its fabulous creatures, animals and fertile lands which is full of various kinds of fruits and vegetables…

The land had the best farms full of different animal and the best forest which was full of amazing trees and beautiful wild flowers …It had an amazing lake full of various kinds of fish … Actually everything in this land was quite exquisite and the nature was very generous by all means in granting the most amazing natural life on this land…

The people of this land used to hunt all the time sometimes for fun and sometimes for food…Why won’t they hunt when they have such generosity among their land…

Far Away in the forest, two important hunters were present among the animals and birds…there was the fox and the crow …

The fox and the crow, the most intelligent among most animals .They were definitely known of their amazing skills in finding their food…

One day two farmers stopped at the forest for hunting. The fox was observing the farmers to steal whatever they are going to hunt … The fox silently watched the two very patiently without making a single noise waiting for its chance to steal the prey they hunt…

But something suddenly caught its attention … Up high above a tree stood a crow watching the scene from above … a hungry crow too … but the crow was watching the fox as well to see its next step…The fox took notice that it was watching carefully the whole scene waiting for the right moment too to catch the prey the farmers are going to hunt.

The fox started thinking how it can quickly steal the prey from the hunters before the crow does.

The fox thought of moving forward quickly before the crow does and take a step ahead before the crow…but how come? If it took a step the hunters might shoot it when they feel its presence .what can be done now before the crow takes faster steps?

The crow is faster in the air and can easily disappear in the sky while it can’t …The fox can’t easily move without being noticed …

Suddenly a gunshot was heard …the farmers hunted a prey … both the crow and the fox glanced at each other for a second and both quickly ran to steal the prey from the hunters … Because both were running towards the hunters, one in the sky and one on the land, the hunters paid attention to them because both were busy catching the prey from the hunters before the other catches it without paying for any cautious steps … They didn’t think if there is a good distance between them and the hunters …

The hunters quickly started shooting towards the crow and the fox but they both managed to hide away from the hunters …

When the hunters left they both came out from their hiding places …They both were so angry at each other because both believed that it was the other’s fault for not having the prey…

The crow: How could you do that to me? I was there first!

The fox: No it was me who came first.

They both started fighting over what‘s taken place when the hunters were there and didn’t reach anything at all …They didn’t reach a solution or at least stopped fighting …

In the end, they both were tired out of fighting and decided to reach a solution to fix the situation because both refused even to leave the spot because it was a good spot to get their food.

The crow said: Let’s agree about something .We both need to be fed so we don’t need to keep on fighting this way. We have to think of something in between…

The fox said: One of us has to leave this area for the other. We can’t hunt in the same area.

The crow said: It’s not going to be me!

The fox said: And not me definitely!

They started fighting again…And again no solution …

The crow told the fox that they better see the king of the forest, the lion, to decide what we both shall do.

They both left to go to the lion to let it decide what they can do to fix the situation.

When they went to the lion, the crow said the whole story. The lion heard the crow and replied carefully saying: You now need this to be fixed.

The lion added: What do you think of having different times for you to hunt as a solution?

They both disagreed.

The lion took a moment and came with a better idea saying: Well, since you both disagree to have different times then i will have to say the other idea. One of you will have the priority to hunt in the eastern area which is full of food only on one condition.

They both waited silently…

The lion said: You both have to show me who has better skills of hunting .The winner will hunt as much as wanted in the eastern area and the loser will hunt somewhere else…

They both agreed happily on that because each one of them thought that it’s better than the other one…

The lion happily announced: So let it be a challenge between you both …Who will be able to bring me the prey before the other tomorrow will be the winner …

Both left happily because of their confidence to win…

The lion was waiting without patience for the winner…But it somehow knew the winner…

The following day the crow and the fox prepared themselves for the hunting …

Both had plans but which one is better …

The farmers came for hunting…both the crow and the fox were waiting eagerly to bring the prey…

The gunshot was heard…the fox ran quickly to get the prey but he was busy checking the crow’s place…the fox suddenly stopped because it couldn’t find the crow …

The fox wondered why isn’t the crow running too to get the prey …Then suddenly without paying attention the crow made noise without showing itself …

The farmers heard it and only saw the fox in front of them, so they started shooting at the fox …by the time they were busy shooting the fox, the crow took the prey and flew away to the king …

The fox managed to hide from the farmers and waited for them till they left and sadly went to the king … when he went there he found the crow and the prey …

The king was so happy at the crow and told the fox: You were busy at the first time watching the crow and you made the same mistake again …but the crow was more intelligent because it knew that you will only watch it again so it came out with its brilliant idea of hiding and then making the sound …

The fox sadly admitted that the crow was wiser because it gets easily distracted …

The fox was so sad losing the challenge … unlike the crow that was so happy winning ….

Now the crow is the winner because of watching the smallest details of the fox and then taking action, unlike the fox who was busy checking the crow only …

The crow is the winner ….

The End

The fox and the crow was an interesting one, since we now know that it’s better to think before we act and analyze before taking actions…We don’t have to focus on others while we can succeed focusing on ourselves…
