One day a shepherd boy felt very lonely in the jungle. He decided to have some fun. So he shouted loudly, "Wolf! Wolf! Help!" The farmers in the neighboring area heard the boy's cries for help. They left their work and ran to help the boy and his sheep. When they came to the spot, they did not notice any sign of a wolf. The farmers asked the boy, "Wasn't it you who cries for help?" The boy laughed and said, "I was just having some fun. There is no wolf here. Go away." The farmers said angry words to the boy and went away. Next day the boy played the same trick and annoyed the farmers once again. A few days later, a wolf really came. The shepherd boy climbed up a tree and shouted for help. But no help came. Everybody thought that the stupid boy was playing his childish joke. The wolf killed many of boy's sheep. The boy felt sorry for this silly joke.
