One day, a Wolf was feasting too fast and greedily, and while eating got a bone stuck in his throat.
Choking and slowly dying on the bone, he met a crane, and saw an opportunity in which they both get rewarded if the crane were to help him out.
Yo where's my reward bruh??
The wolf figured she could stick her long neck in his mouth and pull out the bone. He said to her, "I will reward you handsomely if you assist me with this bone stuck in my neck." The crane was obviously very skeptical.
Theme: Expect no reward from the wicked.
Ignoring her better judgment, the crane obliged and reached into the wolf's mouth and pulled the bone out. Grateful, the wolf thanked her and started to walk away.
Thank you crane! I'll be on my way now. Ttyl
The crane was confused, and yelled to him, "Hey! Where is the reward you promised?!"
The wolf looked back and snickered, "What! Haven't you got it? Isn't it enough that I let you take your head out of my mouth without snapping it off?" The crane was shocked.
