A wild boar and an antelope were a good friends . one day the boar met the antelope at a pool in the jungle .
“ah friend antelope,” said the boar , “I am going to eat you.”
The antelope could not believe his ears! “but I thought we were friends.”
“ yes , I must eat you because I dreamt that I ate you ,” said the boar .
“nonsense ! you cannot eat me just because you dreamt you ate me ,” said the antelope . “ we must go and ask the king .”
“very well” ,said the boar .
The two friends set off to see the king . a monkey who was up on a tree had heard what they said . he decided to follow the two friends and see what would happen.
Before long the two friends arrived before the king ,they bowed ;then the boar told him about his dream . “ is it not right that I must eat friend antelope then?” asked the boar .
“well ,if you have dreamt it ,then you must do it,” said the king . he could not be bothered with the two friends for he was very sleepy.
When the monkey heard this ,he jumped down from the tree where he was hiding .
“ wait o king!” he cried . “ I dream last night that I ate your daughter ,the beautiful princess mera . I must eat her .”
“what a nonsense is this?” cried the king .”I will not hear of it!”
“it is a nonsense . you just said that friend boar can eat friend antelope because friend boar dream it . I shall eat your daughter because I dreamt it too,” said the monkey.
The king was silent at this . he thought for a while . then he spoke ,”let it be known that I have made a mistake . the boar shall not eat the antelope just because he dreamt it . the monkey shall not eat my daughter ,Mera”
Thus the clever monkey saved the antelope’s life.
