So I have to take this terrible fable and turn it into a short story
Here it is

So there was a man who walked into a forest one day. And he asked the tree's for a branch. He saw branch fall and he took it. Only to turn it into an axe and cut down the tree's. How foolish the tree's felt for this act.


So here are my idea's for this
-Takes place in Albania
-His father is a blacksmith who makes the axe out of wood he is given
-After he cuts down too many tree's he does not return to that forest for a year
-As he is gone, they use the forest as gallows, where people are hung for crimes
-He returns to the forest and asks for more wood
-A bloody rope with a loop falls the moment he asks and he runs away terrified
These are my ideas, it doesn't really have a moral though, any suggestions?

Fables aren't necessarily only exclusive to stories about animals, they are just short stories with morales, Aesop generally used animals to symbolise humans such as a lion to represent the king as it punishable by death to use reference to the king in a bad way, but not all his fables used animals Smile

Thank you IB
However, I plan on using all of the points
I am not sure how to deliver the moral though
Maybe
If you abuse a privilege, then nature will **** you up
