Two Travelers and the Bear
Once upon a time, two young men were walking along the mountain trail. They were very close friends.
But, all of a sudden, a bear showed up. Shocked, the young men were looking for a place to hide. One fellow hid himself by climbing up a tree, but the other one was unable to run away.
途中，突然遇到一头大熊，他们吓坏了，四处寻找藏身之处 。其中的一个人抢先爬上了树，躲了起来，而另一个眼见逃生无望 。
When the bear pounced upon him, the fellow who could not run away threw himself flat down upon the ground and pretended to be dead. The young man on the ground held his breath and stayed still. The bear, coming up to him, put his muzzle close to the man, and sniffed. "He's dead. I don't eat dead meat."
当熊越走越近时，这人便灵机一动马上躺倒在地上，假装死了 。躺在地上的那人屏住呼吸， 一动不动 。熊走到他跟前，用鼻子在他脸上嗅了嗅： “这是个死人，我可从来不吃死人的肉 。”
The bear left the young man along and went away. After the bear was gone, the friend in the tree came down. Wiping away his cold sweat, the friend asked, "What did the bear say to you?"
于是熊便离开了 。等熊离开后，躲在树上的人下来了 。他擦去冷汗，然后问道“熊在你耳边说了些什么？”
"Oh, the bear told me", said the other, "Not to hang out with a friend who runs away when a risky situation occurs."
After hearing him, the young man who climbed up the tree alone felt sorry for his behavior. Friends mean being there for each other even when danger comes.
听到这话，独自爬上树逃生的年轻人为自己的行为感到很惭愧 。遇到危险时，朋友之间应该互相帮助 。
