Mr. Dongguo said: "By doing this I'll offend prominent officials, and face disaster. But I'll surely try to save you. This is something I ought to do." At this moment, the wolf curled up its limbs. Mr. Dongguo tied it up with rope, put it into his sack, and drove the donkey to the roadside to let the hunter pass by.
A moment later, the hunter came up and found the wolf missing. He asked Mr. Dongguo: "Have you seen a wolf? Where did it run off to?" Mr. Dongguo said: "I haven't seen any wolf. This road leads to many byroads. The wolf may have escaped from one of them."
不一会儿，猎人追了上来，发现狼不见了，就问东郭先生: “你看见一只狼没有?它往哪里跑了?” 东郭先生说:“我没有看见狼。这条路岔道多，狼也许从岔道上逃走了。”
The hunter could do nothing but believe this to be true. So he turned around and left. When the wolf heard the xiaogushi8.com hoofbeats fade in the distance, it said in the sack: "Sir, please let me out of the sack, untie the rope, pull out the arrow on my limb, and let me escape." "Please, sir, now I am so starved. Please let me devour you."
The kindhearted Mr. Dongguo, bewitched by its sweet words, released the wolf. But unexpectedly, the wolf howled at him: Whereupon the wolf bared its teeth, brandished its claws, and pounced upon him. Mr. Dongguo fought the wolf bare-handed and kept on shouting: "You ungrateful wolf! You ungrateful wolf!" (责任编辑：英语小故事网)
