In the weeks and months and seasons that followed, the boy would occasionally become bored and cry wolf. People of village would come out, fail to find the wolf and then stay to hear the boy's story of wolf behavior. The stories told of amazing interventions from other animals, of battles breaking out between wolves and one of the wolves taking pity on a crippled but brave sheep defending the herd. As will happen, finally a wolf did come upon the herd and the boy was forced to shout out for help. Again the people came though by now they came more slowly and carried torches to light there way and sticks to help them walk over stony ground. When they arrived, they saw the wolf and set upon it with the sticks and torches and drove it away. The boy thanked them and said he had been afraid they might have lost faith in his cries of wolf. The village elder replied: "Oh, we didn't believe in the wolf we just came to hear what story you would tell."
