One day two young men were going through the forest. One said to the other,We' re good friends. We must help each other. If any beast（野兽） comes at you, I'll stay with you and help you.” The other friend said，"I will help you too, if any beast comes at you.
They walked on.
After a while there was great noise. It was a big bear （熊）.The young man ran away quickly and got up into a tree. But the other was fat and could not climb up. So he threw himself at the foot of the tree. He thought to himself,Tlie bear will think that I am dead.
Soon the bear came near The bear looked at the fat man, then it put its nose down and smelled him, The fat man held his breath（屏住呼吸）.The bear thought he was dead, so It went away.
The man in the tree came down with a smile, he asked his friends The bear put its mouth so near to your ear. What did it say to you？
The friend answered，“ The bear said,Don' t trust（信任）your friend. He ran away from you when you needed his help most. Remember, a friend in need is a friend indeed（真正的）.”
