All three pigs left the house to listen to their mother. On their way, they reached another forest. All three were tired. So he started resting under a tree.
After resting for some time, they sat there and started discussing with each other about their future life.
A pig said, “According to me, now we should take different paths and try our luck by living separately.”
The other pig was agreed with this but the third pig said, “I don’t like it.” We should not leave each other. We can try our luck and make our living in different ways even by staying in one place. “
“How can we do that?” both pigs said.
“We will build separate houses at one place. By being around, at least we will be able to use each other in times of trouble. what do you say? ” The third pig said.
The other two pigs accepted this. After that all three started building houses around the same place.

The second pig thought that a house made of dry branches of trees would be stronger than a house of straw. So he started building houses with tree twigs. At first he had to work a little more than the boar. But his house also got ready soon and he also started playing with fun.
Here the third pig decided to build a house of brick after much deliberation. It was a lot of hard work. Time also had to take longer. But he wanted to build a strong and safe house for himself.
It took him seven days to build his house. Meanwhile, seeing him working hard, both pigs make fun of him that he is doing foolishly by working so hard. They would encourage him to play and have fun with him. But the third pig kept on working. Eventually, his house was also ready. This house made of bricks was very beautiful and strong.
Now the three little pigs houses were very good looking and all facilites were there for daily needs. The three pigs were living happily in their respective homes. All three of them were very happy. They had no problem at that place.
One day a big bad wolf came from somewhere. When his eyes fell on three fat piggies, he got water in his mouth.
He first went to first pigs house and knocked on the door. At that time, the pig was sleeping. His sleep broke due to a knock at the door. But he did not open the door immediately, instead asked inside, “Who is there?”
“Open the door.” let me come inside.” The wolf said.
The pig got scared on hearing the hoarse voice of the wolf. He realized that there is a wild animal at the door. He refused to open the door.
At this, the wolf became agitated and shouted, “Pig!” You are not going to save! I will blow your straw house with my fire. Be ready to die. ” The Wolf said,”I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house down.
Having said this, He blew home with great force. Poor Pig’s house made up of straw flew in the air. He ran to the other pig’s house after saving his life. When the other Pig opened the door after banging the door loudly, he swiftly entered inside and closed the door.
The second pig was surprised to see him trembling with fear. But before he could ask anything, the wolf reached his house and knocked on the door, “Open the door.” Open the door let me come inside.”
Hearing the wolf’s voice, the first little pig said to the second, “Brother, do not open the door.” This is a dangerous wolf, who has come to eat us.”
Both did not open the door. When the door didn’t open, the wolf angrily shouted, “What do you guys think?” If you do not open the door, you will be saved. I will break this house made of twigs in one stroke.”
The Wolf said,” I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house down
Both Pigs were now in fear. Here the wolf smashed the paw and broke the house made from the twigs. After saving his life, the both pigs ran towards the third pig’s house and reached his house and told him the whole thing.
The third pig said, “Do not be afraid. This house is very strong. The wolf cannot break it. “
But both pigs were very scared. They started searching for a hiding place. Then the wolf came there and started banging the door, “Open the door … Open the door … Let me come in.”
“We will not open the door.” The third boar spoke fearlessly.
“Still you will not be able to survive.” I will break this house and kill and eat all three of you. ” Shouted the wolf.
He tried to blow up the house by blowing it but wolf did not succeed. Then he tried to break the house by hitting a claw, but it was not successful either.
The third pig house was a strong house made of bricks. He did not break even after much efforts by the wolf.
Wolf was to ready to give up. He planned to enter the house through the chimney(roof top).
He climbed onto the roof of the house and moved towards the chimney. When the sound of his footsteps fell in the ears of the pigs, at first both the pigs started crying in fear. But the third boar, showing intelligence, put the water in a big pot under the chimney to boil.
When the wolf jumped inside the chimney, it went straight into the hot boiling water and died there. In this way, the fear and intelligence of the first pig saved the lives of the three pigs.
Both pigs realized their mistake that they should not make fun of the third pig while building the house. He had built such a strong and safe house by working so hard. Because of which they are all alive today.
They apologized for their mistakes. The third pig forgave them and called both of them to stay at their house. The three pigs started laughing happily together in the same house.
