However, the earthen pot began to excuse himself and said, “It would make sense to me for being in the corner with fire, because it will take me so little time to break. You know how much fragile I am and at the least jerk is much to shatter me!”

The brass pot insisted, “I cannot let you stay at home alone, I will certainly care you well. If we faced any hard on the way, I will step between and save you!”

Therefore, finally, the earthen pot agreed, and both set out side-by-side, jerking side with the first three stubby legs and then collide with each other at every step. This type of companionship could not suffered by the earthen path for very long.
