A friend in need is a friend indeed story 2:
Once there lived two boys in a country who were very bosom friends. They were so close to each other that they used to move together and stay together. Once they went on a tour. On the way they had to cross a dangerous jungle to reach their destination. So the two friends were passing through the thick jungle. When night fell, one of them said to the other, Friend, I am told that a fierce bear lives in this jungle. What should you do if the bear attacks us?” Another friend said, “We’ll not bother it. We will fight together and kill the bear.” Both of them felt very happy and courageous.
However, they had not gone far through the jungle when a huge bear rushed out of the woods and ran towards them. Then the fatter at once took to his heels and got up on a tree. He did not think of his another friend. But his poor friend did not know how to climb a tree. He was at a loss. He did not know what to do.
Suddenly he remembered one thing that a bear does not eat a dead man. Finding no other way, he fell flat on the ground and lay quite still and pretended to be a dead man. The bear came close to him and felt his face with its snout. But as the man held his breath and lay quite still, the bear took him for a dead man and went away. Fortunately the poor man escaped the attack of the bear. The other friend on the tree saw everything and was sure that the bear would kill the man.
He was surprised that his friend was saved miraculously. Now the man on the tree got down and said to his friend with a smile, “What did the bear whisper to you when it put its snout close to your ear”? He replied that a self centered man can never be a good friend and never trust a selfish man.
