Kindness is a virtue that never goes to waste. Our society has many examples which prove this proverb. One such example is this story.
Once a king had a slave. The king was cruel and unjust. He was selfish and strict. His slave did not like him due to his cruel behaviour with him. The king used to give him heavy punishment for slight mistakes. He gave little to him to eat. The slave had a miserable life. One day, he decided to run away. In the morning, he ran away to the forest and hid in a cave. He was sure that the king’s soldiers were searching for him everywhere.

Sitting in the cave, he was thinking of his fate when he heard s growl behind him. An idea hit his mind. A lion was sitting behind him. He drenched with sweat in fear. He could not move. The lion growled again. The slave realized a pain in the voice of the lion. He turned back and looked at the lion. He saw that the lion has a thorn in its paw. The lion was looking at him with strange eyes. The slave took courage and went near the lion. The lion did not change its expression. Slowly, the slave moved near and pulled the thorn out of his paw. The lion roared and the slave was about to run. Suddenly, the lion stood up and went out of the cave without hurting the slave. The lion turned on the opening of the cave and looked at the slave with thankful eyes and went away.
