The Butterfly and the Fox
by Ananya Prasad
One day a fox invited a butterfly for lunch. The butterfly was quite surprised but it decided to accept the invitation.. The fox served the butterfly with dry food. The butterfly did not like the food that was served. But somehow the butterfly thought of eating it as it did not want to disappoint its friend..It was doubtful about its taste. At the same time it wanted to be on guard. It knew that the fox was a cunning animal.
 
The fox had actually mixed poison in the food. The butterfly was not cunning but it was intelligent. So it asked the fox to taste the food first. The fox refused and told the butterfly that it was fasting for the butterfly’s health and happiness. The butterfly thought for a while and understood the fox’s plan.
 
The fox was eagerly waiting for the butterfly to have its lunch. The butterfly pretended to eat a little food and it started shivering. Thinking that the butterfly was dying, the fox  started to laugh loudly.
 
It said” You are a beautiful butterfly and so I hate you. You are so proud of your colourful wings which I don’t have. So I wanted to kill you.”
 
Then suddenly the butterfly became normal and started to speak to the fox.
 
It said “My dear fox, it is very bad on your part to have done this. We all belong to this wonderful forest. So we are all members of this lovely home. We should be friendly and help each other and not kill each other. I have not eaten your food as I doubted your actions. Please try to be good. Otherwise you will be left without a friend. Good bye my friend. ”
 
 Saying these words, the butterfly flew away. Now it was the fox’s turn to shiver. It understood the butterfly’s words. That night it thought about the colourful butterfly and wondered about its goodness. It tried to give it poison, but the butterfly called him his ‘friend’.
 
Thinking for a long time, the fox went to sleep.
 
The next morning, the fox woke up and remembered its wrong actions. It felt guilty. It decided to change its ways. It started searching for the butterfly and finally found it playing with its friends.
 
The fox went up to it and said, “My dear friend. Butterfly, I have realized my mistake. I will never do such a thing again. Please forgive me. Will you?”.
 
The butterfly looked into the fox’s eyes and understood that the fox was sincere in its talk.
 
So it said to the fox,  “Don’t worry my friend! My mother told me that the greatest thing in life to realize one’s mistake and you have done it. Now we shall be friends forever. Now I fly away to my friends. Bye”.
 
Saying this, the butterfly flew away.
 
The fox looked at the flying butterfly and said to itself, “No now, I am not jealous of the butterfly. I can never fly and the butterfly never walks. “and it returned home.
