“Hey Foxy, how are you,” asked the elephant. “I don’t know what to say. I am too worried about my son. One lion took him away as his slave,” the fox said. “Oh, don’t worry, I will take care of him,” assured the elephant.
He went straight to the lion’s cave. There he saw the poor little fox staring at the lion’s eyes and lion shouting at him. Seeing the elephant, the lion came out of his cave and asked him what he wants? The elephant asked him to leave the fox child with him, said that his mother is waiting for him. But the lion just ignored the elephant. He said he is going to keep the fox child with him to work as his slave. But the lion put forward a condition. If the elephant defeats the lion in a battle, he can take the fox child with him. The elephant agreed, and there was a fierce battle.
The lion jumped on to the elephant head. It was usual trick lions do while fighting with elephants. But the elephant shook his head, and the lion fell to the ground. The battle continued for hours, and finally, the elephant won the battle. He threw the lion away with his mighty trunk.
The fox mother, who was anxiously waiting for her child saw the elephant and the fox child coming from a distance. She jumped with joy. She was short of words while thanking the elephant risking his own life to save her dear child.
