Story:“Tony the Lonely Goat"

Tony was a very lonely goat. He was often seen roaming the mountains in search of a friend. One day, when he went to the river and saw a small goat in the water, he bleated joyfully, “Would you be my friend?” The fishes in the river laughed aloud, “You stupid goat, that’s your reflection you’re talking to!” Tony was surprised. While walking back home, tears welled up in his eyes and he thought, “I am so unlucky, I don’t have any friend nor any siblings.” As soon as he reached home, his father hugged him tight. “Welcome, Tony, see what we have here for you!” Tony hurriedly went to the backyard and saw a little white goat lying beside his mother. “That’s your sister!” exclaimed his mother. Tony bleated happily, “I will never be lonely again!”

(2)Three bears, Rick, Rusty and Coal were very scared of the dark. So every night they lit the street lamps and went to sleep. One day, a bear named Arthur came to stay in the neighbourhood. “Who dare keep the lights on at night?” he growled. One by one he switched off all the street lamps and threatened to beat up Rick, Rusty and Coal if they dared switch on the lights. “We have to think of a plan to outsmart Arthur,” declared Rusty. They all thought hard and at last, Coal hit on a plan. That night they surrounded Arthur’s house with bulbs. Rick hid in the bushes and asked his friends to light all of them. Hearing a noise, Arthur woke up and opened his door. The bright light nearly blinded him and he tripped down the stairs. The three bears laughed and clapped their hands. “Don’t you dare switch off the lights ever again or else…” they threatened Arthur. Groaning in pain, Arthur went back to his house. That night all the bears slept peacefully.
