There was once a fox who had never seen a lion before.
The first time she happened to run into a lion she was so scared that she almost died of fright.
When the fox ran into a lion the second time, however, she was still scared, but not as scared as the first time.
Finally, the third time that the fox saw a lion, she walked right up to him and started a conversation.
The moral of the story is that some things are frightening at first, but they are not as scary when you become familiar with them.
Inspired by: Mille Fabulae et Una, a collection of Latin fables that I've edited, free to read online. I am not translating the Latin here; instead, I am just telling a 100-word version of the fable.
Notes: This is fable 26 in the book, which is Perry 10.
