Monkey and a Crocodile

This is a story about a monkey and his friend crocodile. Monkey was living in a jamun tree near a lake , and the crocodile was living in that lake with his wife . Both monkey and crocodile were good friends . Monkey used to give jamun from the tree to his friend crocodile . One day crocodile collected some jamun from his friend monkey for his wife. Crocodile wife has never tasted such a delicious fruit before, she asked his husband from where did you get such a tasty fruit. Crocodile told him about the tree and his friend monkey. Crocodile wife was very greedy, she thought if that monkey is eating these fruits everyday then his heart must be very tasty like jamun fruit. She made a plan to eat that monkey . She told her husband crocodile that she wanted to eat that monkey heart else she will get sick . Initially her husband crocodile refused but later he got ready to bring monkey for her.

Next day crocodile went to the monkey and invited him to his house for a party. Monkey agreed and sat on crocodile back . When crocodile reached in the middle of the river , he told monkey that his wife is very sick and she wanted to eat your heart. Monkey got shocked to hear this , but in the middle of the river he cannot escape. Monkey thought and told to his friend crocodile that I keep my heart outside my body and it is hanging on the jamun tree . If He would have told this before then he could get his heart from the tree. The crocodile was very foolish to believe this and swim back towards the tree to get the monkey heart.

Monkey quickly jumped from the back of crocodile upon reaching near the tree and went to the highest branch . Monkey said , you foolish crocodile !! you have cheated me . I will never give you fruits from this tree and asked him to go away . Crocodile lost a good friend because of this foolishness .
