There appeared a frog, nice, cheerful and jumping. The scorpion approached him and asked:Hello nice frog, would you mind if I climbed on your back to cross the river so I could reach the other shore?". The frog looked at him carefully and replied:I would do it with good pleasure, my dear scorpion, but if I did, you would stick my sting and die". The scorpion replied sincerely: ” dear frog, I promise you that I just want to cross the river and that I have no intention of killing you with my poison. Also, if I did, we would both die drowned“.
The frog decided to believe him and approached so that the scorpion climbed on his back. Meeting the two in the water, already halfway, the scorpion lifted its tail and stuck the sting to the frog. She, dying and shortly before drowning, asked the scorpion: “Scorpio, why have you done them? now we will die the two drowned", To which the scorpion replied:"I'm sorry dear frog, It is part of my nature“.
