The following day, the boy repeated his foolery. “Wolf! Wolf! Help me! Help me!” Some of the neighbors came running again to help, only to find the young shepherd laughing at them, because this time too it was a lie that a wolf was near. The third day, when they heard the ball call “Wolf! Wolf! The wolf is eating the sheep! Please come help!” no one paid any attention because they thought that it was just another lie. That day the wolf did come and eat the sheep! The young shepherd was very sad, but he had learned a good lesson. If we tell lies, the day will come when neither our parents, out brothers and sisters, nor our friends will believe what we say, even when it is the truth!
