Putri Salju

Pada suatu hari, ada seorang Ratu yang sedang duduk di balik jendela yang sangat indah sambil menjahit dan melihat salju yang turun. Secara tidak sengaja, jarinya tertusuk oleh jarum jahit hingga mengeluarkan tiga tetes darah dari jarinya. Darah tersebut jatuh di atas salju, dan warna merah pun menempel di atas salju yang putih, sehingga terlihat sangat cantik. Ratu pun berpikir “’Andai saja aku punya anak dengan kulit seputih salju dan bibir semerah darah”.

Beberapa waktu kemudian, akhirnya Ratu pun melahirkan seorang Putri yang sangat cantik jelita yang memiliki kulit seputih salju dan bibir merah semerah darah. Sang putri pun tumbuh menjadi gadis yang sangat cantik dan juga baik hati. Ia kemudian dipanggil dengan nama Putri Salju. Namun, ketika Putri Salju tumbuh menjadi gadis remaja, Sang Ratu meninggal karena mempunyai penyakit. Setelah Sang Ratu meninggal, Sang Raja pun menikah lagi. Ratu baru yang ini sangat jahat dan sangat benci kepada Putri Salju. Sang Ratu memberi perintah agar Putri Salju diperlakukan sebagai seorang pembantu.

Setiap hari Sang Ratu berdiri di depan cermin ajaib sambil bertanya “Siapa wanita paling cantik di negeri ini?” dan cermin ajaib itupun selalu menjawab “Anda adalah yang paling cantik di antara semuanya”. Sang Ratu yang baru itu mengajukan pertanyaan yang sama setiap hari dan si cermin pun selalu menjawab dengan jawaban yang sama. Tapi suatu hari cermin menjawab bahwa Ratu itu sangat cantik tetapi Putri Salju jauh lebih cantik dari Sang Ratu. Hal itu membuat Sang Ratu begitu marah sehingga ia memerintahkan salah satu pemburu untuk membawa Putri Salju ke hutan dan langsung membunuhnya.

Ternyata sang pemburu adalah seseorang yang baik hati sehingga ia tidak bisa melakukan perbuatan tersebut. Ia menyarankan kepada Sang Putri Salju untuk kabur. Dalam pelariannya ke hutan, ia menemukan tempat di mana terdapat tujuh kurcaci tinggal. Tempat tinggal mereka sangat kecil dan aneh. Sang Putri Salju memasuki rumah kecil tersebut dan tempat itu begitu berantakan. Kemudian, ia mulai membersihkan seluruh rumah itu. Di lantai atas ia menemukan tujuh tempat tidur kecil-kecil. Ia begitu letih sehingga ia pun berbaring di salah satu tempat tidur tersebut. Tidak lama setelah itu, ia pun tertidur di tempat tidur itu.

Ketika Kurcaci pulang, mereka terkejut menemukan Putri Salju, dan setelah berdialog, mereka memutuskan untuk membiarkan ia tinggal di sana. Dia berjanji untuk memasak dan merawat mereka. Ia tinggal bersama di sana dengan bahagia.

Sayangnya, Sang Ratu menemukan tempat di mana Putri Salju tinggal dan kemudian dirinya menyamar menjadi seorang penyihir. Kemudian ia mengambil apel beracun dan pergi ke rumah Sang Kurcaci. Dia memberikan apel beracun tersebut kepada Putri Salju untuk dimakannya. Seketika setelah Putri Salju menggigit apel beracun tersebut, ia kemudian jatuh pingsan.

Kurcaci berpikir bahwa Putri Salju sudah mati, kurcaci pun membuat peti mati kaca dan menempatkan dia di dalamnya. Selama berhari-hari ia terbaring di dalam peti kaca di hutan. Suatu hari, seorang pangeran berkelana ke hutan mencari Putri Salju dan menemukannya. Dia membungkuk dan menciumnya. Dia membuka matanya dan duduk dengan tersenyum. Semua orang bahagia pada waktu itu. Pangeran membawa Putri Salju ke istananya di mana mereka menikah dan hidup bahagia selamanya.

The Lion and The Mouse

When he was awakened by a tiny Mouse running across his body, a mighty Lion was sleeping in his lair. The lion then grabbed the frightened mouse with his huge paws and opened his mouth to swallow him directly. “Please, King,” begged the Mouse, “Spare me this time and of course I will never forget your kindness. Someday I may be able to repay you. “The Lion thought that it was such an amusing idea that he let the poor creature go.

Sometimes later the Lion was caught in a net laid by some hunters. Despite his great strength, the Lion could not break free. Soon the forest echoed with angry load roars.

The Little Mouse heard the Lion and ran to see what was wrong. As soon as he succeeded to make the Lion free “There!” said the Mouse proudly, ” You laughed at me when I promised to repay your kindness, but now you know that even a tiny Mouse can help a mighty Lion.”

Moral Value:

  1. Little friends may prove to be great friends.
  2. Friend in need is friend indeed.

 

Singa dan Tikus

Pada saat ia terbangun oleh tikus kecil yang berjalan di tubuhnya, singa perkasa itu sedang tertidur di sarangnya. Kemudian Singa itu menangkap tikus yang sedang ketakutan dengan cakar besar dan sekaligus membuka mulutnya untuk menelannya langsung. “Tolong, Raja”, kata tikus, “Bebaskan saya kali ini dan tentu saja saya tidak akan pernah melupakan kebaikan mu, suatu hari nanti aku mungkin bisa membayar kebaikanmu ini”. Singa pun berpikir bahwa itu adalah hal yang baik sehingga ia membiarkan makhluk lemah itu pergi dari cengkeramannya.

Beberapa waktu kemudian singa itu terperangkap dalam jaring yang diletakkan oleh beberapa pemburu. Meskipun memiliki kekuatan yang besar, singa tersebut tetap tidak bisa membebaskan dirinya. Kemudian hutan pun bergema dengan auman singa yang sedang marah tersebut.

Tikus kecil mendengar auman singa tersebut dan kemudian berlari untuk melihat apa yang sedang terjadi. Begitu si tikus kecil berhasil membuat singa bebas, “Itulah!” kata tikus dengan perasaan bangganya, “Engkau tertawa padaku saat aku berjanji untuk membalas kebaikanmu, tetapi sekarang engkau tahu bahwa meski hanya tikus kecil tapi bisa membantu singa yang perkasa untuk bebas dari perangkap”.

Nilai moral:

  1. Teman yang kecil atau lemah sekalipun bisa menjadi teman yang sangat luar biasa.
  2. Teman yang membutuhkan adalah arti dari teman yang sebenarnya.
