Listen to The Audio of This Story
There was once a young goat who, feeling adventurous, decided to stray from the herd and explore the meadows on his own. As he pranced and danced upon a hill, he noticed the looming shadow of a wolf, watching him intently from a distance.
Feeling cornered, but not willing to give up without a fight, the kid thought of a way to delay his fate. “Before you eat me,” said the kid, trying to sound brave, “why not let me play you a tune on my reed pipe? It will be my last wish, and then you can feast on me.”
The wolf, intrigued and seeing no harm in indulging the kid, agreed. “Very well,” he growled, “but make it quick.”
With the softest melody, the kid began to play on his pipe. The tune was so serene and soothing that it echoed through the valley. As the wolf got lost in the music, he didn’t notice the approach of the shepherd’s dogs. Alerted by the melody, they rushed to the scene, barking fiercely.
Startled, the wolf had no choice but to flee for his life, leaving the young goat unharmed.
