Story: True Friendship in Tough Times
Once upon a time, there were two friends walking through a forest. One of them started to show off, saying that he was a really good friend and would do anything for his friends. All of a sudden, a bear showed up. The same friend got really scared and quickly climbed a tree to save himself. The other friend lay down on the ground and held his breath, trying not to move.
The bear came closer to the friend on the ground and sniffed around him. It seemed like the bear thought the friend was not moving because he was already dead. So, the bear eventually left. The friend who had climbed the tree came down and asked his companion, "What did the bear tell you?" The friend on the ground answered that the bear had actually whispered to him: "A friend in need is a friend indeed."
Moral of the story:
This story teaches us that a true friend is someone who is there to help and support you when you really need it. Just like the friend who stayed on the ground showed his loyalty by pretending to be dead, a real friend stands by you in tough times.
