The Mouse Story

My version rewritten from an old tale

A snake and a little mouse were sitting beside the lake and as the clouds grew darker and the rain increased the little mouse was chattering about getting across the lake to his family.

The snake noticed the mouse was trembling more and more. The snake turned to the mouse in a very kind voice, and asked, would you like to hop on my back and I will take you across. The mouse was very happy and thankful.

The mouse hopped on the kind snakes back and they headed across the lake swiftly. They had a nice chat across the way. The mouse told the snake of his good fortune to meet such a nice snake and to help him in his time of need. When they reached the other side of the lake as soon as the mouse started to say thank you the snake started to kill the little mouse.

The mouse screamed very loudly and shrieked in horror begging the snake to stop and asking the snake why was he would do that. The snake simply replied, because that is what we do.

"No matter the circumstances, YOU always control your attitude, your belief and the choices you make."

This has been a good one for me. No longer do I let someone else control how I feel.
