A lion saw the elephant staring at him. He knew that if he stares back,
that could provoke the elephant. So the lion just walked past the elephant ignoring the elephant. At the same time, deep in his mind, lion felt he was freezing with fear. If the elephant comes forward, it could throw the lion.
But the elephant didn’t move. The elephant was enjoying rubbing its body against the tree. It was a fun activity for the elephant. The lion heaved a sigh of relief.
