  One day, a tiger was hungry. The tiger met a fox and wanted to eat it.

  “How dare you eat me?!” the fox shouted.

  “Why not?” the tiger asked.

  “ I am sent by god to rule all the animals! I am the king of animals! If you eat me, you will defy the order of heaven!” the fox said.

  The tiger said:“ I don’t believe you! You must be lying!”

  The fox said:“ If you don’t believe me, you can walk behind me and go to the forest with me. Then, you can see all the animals are scared and run away when they see me.”

  So, the tiger followed the fox, going to the forest. As soon as the animals saw them, they fled for their lives.

  The tiger didn’t realize it was him that all the animals were really afraid of.

  从前在某个山洞中有一只老虎,因为肚子饿了,便跑到外面寻觅食物。它碰到了一只狐狸,狐狸刚要溜走,已被它一把捉住。狡猾的狐狸看见自己无法逃脱,就耍了一个花招。它一本正经地斥责老虎说:“你怎么敢吃我?我是天帝任命来管理所有的野兽的,你要吃了我,就是违抗天帝的命。”老虎一听愣住了。狐狸马上接着说:“你要是不信,就跟在我后面走一趟,看看是不是所有的野兽见了我都赶快逃命。”老虎听狐狸说话的口气很大,态度也很强硬,有几分相信了,决定跟着狐狸去看看。有许多小动物正在那儿争相觅食,但是当它们发现走在狐狸后面的老虎时,不禁大惊失色,狂奔四散。老虎以为百兽真的害怕狐狸而不知道是害怕自己,于是就把狐狸给放了。
