When the little Pig saw what the Wolf was doing, he hung on the pot full of water, and made up a blazing fire, and, just as the Wolf was coming down, took off the cover of the pot, and said “Try to eat me will you? How would you like it if I cook and eat you up!?”
The Wolf hit the scalding water and let out a great yell. He scampered quickly back up the chimney and ran as fast as he could back the safety of the old den in the woods with his mother.
