The vulture, the elephant and the rabbit story

Many years ago in Cambodia. There lived the King of the Vultures.
One right, he dreamed that if he could eat the flesh of white elephant, he could become king of the whole of south-east Asia.
When he woke, he told his servants to catch a white elephant for him. Two of them, dressed in golden uniforms, flew to where they knew a white elephant was living.
“Oeu, friend elephant, our master has sent us to fetch you to the place as he would like  to eat white elephant’s flesh.
The white elephant was frightened to hear this. However, there was nothing he could do as the King of the Vultures was so powerful.
He said goodbye to his wife and children and left for
the Vulture King’s palace.
On his way there, he met his friend, Mr. Rabbit. “Where are you going,” asked the rabbit, “and why do you look so sad?” the white elephant told him what had happened.
“What are you going to do? You’ve  a wife and family to look after. Let me come along with you. I’m sure I’ll be able to find some way to make the King of the Vultures change his mind.”
The elephant was very happy to hear this.
Mr. Rabbit sat on his head and travelled with him to the King of the vulture’s palace.
“Welcome! Welcome!” cried the King of the vultures. On seeing the white elephant arrive. “I’ve been waiting such along time for you. I’m afraid I shall have to eat you up straight away.”
He told the elephant to kneel down so he could cut off a piece of his trunk. The King of the Vultures then saw Mr. Rabbit sitting on the elephant’s head, holding on to his two ears.
“Who are you?” he asked. “If you don’t jump down immediately. I’ll eat you up as well.”
“Please wait a moment,” said Mr. Rabbit. “Can You please tell me what the trouble is?”
The King of the Vultures told him about his dream.
“Really!” said Mr. Rabbit, “As a matter of fact, I’ve just had a dream myself of marrying your sister.”
“You can’t do that!” the king of the Vultures shouted.
“In that case,” answered Mr. Rabbit, “to the quite fair, you can’t eat the elephant other.”
The King of the Vultures had to admit that what Mr. Rabbit had said was right.
The elephant returned home to his family and his friend, Mr. Rabbit hopped off back to his home in the forest.
