Once upon a time, Zebra, Kob and Fox were good friends. One day, Zebra and Kob were taking a walk and found a load of fruit, and decided to keep it a secret. As they walked on, they met Fox along the way who asked them why they were so happy. They were hesitant to tell their secret until Fox promised to keep the secret if they told him.

So they all walked back to the village so happy. When they arrived, Fox forgot about his promise, and told everyone.

When Zebra and Kob returned to the place where they had found the fruit, the animals of the village had already been there and had eaten it all.

Angered by this betrayal, they decided to teach Fox a lesson. The next day they told Fox that they had found a lake so full of fish that no effort was needed to catch them.

Fox again told everyone in the village about this. The next day, Fox came by to visit his two pals—Zebra and Kob, and he was covered with bruises. After telling all the animals about the lake full of fish, everyone, including the big polar bears, had gone there. However, they did not find anything. They felt so deceived and decided to give Fox a good beating.

Fox learned that keeping people’s trust is very important. Earning trust comes with loyalty and always keeping your word.

Zebra and Kob forgave Fox and they learnt to trust him again. From then on Fox has never revealed his friend’s secrets.
