The Wolf and the Bear never were friends. They lived by the river, in the side of the mountain, surrounded by the forest. They had the same water, shelters and foods, but they never were friends, and they tried to avoid each other every time they could.
One day, the Bear was wandering in the middle of the trees, and he found an abandoned dead deer. It was half eaten, but all alone lying there in the middle of the woods. The Bear thought: “Well, it’s here… abandoned… I don’t think that it could hurt anyone if I eat a little bit. The Winter is coming, and I’m going to sleep a lot. I need to eat all that I could.”
So the Bear went to the deer and started to eat. When he was in the middle of his unespected meal, he hear a growl on his back. The took a look, and saw the Wolf, all the hair up, all the teeth out, looking and growling at him. “Why are you eating my deer?”, the Wolf asked.
“The deer was alone in the middle of the woods. I didn’t know that it was yours.”, the Bear aswered.
“Well, you know now. Leave my deer, I’m not afraid of you.”, the Wolf growled again, walking towards the Bear, all the hair up and all the teeth out. He put the tongue between the teeth and looked the Bear like he was his next target. “Fight! I’m not afraid of you! Even if your big and strong.”, the Wolf grasped.
The Bear looked at the dead deer, and then looked at the Wolf. “Nor you nor I need to fight. Take the deer, it’s all yours.” And he left the deer and the Wolf there in the middle of the trees. He walked away, slowly, to the river, where he could find juicy fishes to full his belly for the Winter.
