The Boy who cried 'Wolf'

Once there was a shepherd boy. The boy was short and had long brown hair. He had to look after a flock of sheep. One  long day, he felt  sleepy and decided to play a prank on the other people in the village. He   shouted“Help! Wolf! Wolf!”
The villagers heard his cries and  ran fast out of the village to help the shepherd boy. When they got to him, they asked, “Where is the wolf?”
The shepherd boy  roared with laughter, “Ha, Ha, Ha! I tricked you all. I was only playing a prank on you.”
A few days later, the sun was shining and the boy was bored again. The shepherd boy played the trick again.
He cried, “Help! Help! Wolf! Wolf!” Again, the villagers  galloped up the hill to help him and again they found that the boy had tricked them. They were  angry with him for being so  naughty.
A few days later, it was  horrible weather. The boy watched a wolf  run into the field. The wolf attacked one  big sheep, and then another and another. It was  awful. The shepherd boy ran towards the village saying loudly, “Help! Help! Wolf! Help! Somebody!”
The villagers heard his cries but they laughed because they thought it was just another prank.
The boy ran to the nearest villager and said, “A wolf is attacking the sheep. I lied before, but this time it is true!”
Finally, the villagers went to look. It was true. They could see the wolf running away and many dead sheep lying on the  long grass.

We may not believe someone who often tells lies, even when he tells the truth.
