the house story
The house was staying with a man and a tree.
No one came there. No one went anywhere. The man worked all day in the farm and
at the house. At night he sang songs and tree and house listened to his songs.
One day when the man had gone to the farm a
thief came to the house. He took everything, and when he was about to leave, the house said,"wait till the friend comes."
"I am a thief and if your friend catches me, he will take me to police." said the thief." "No he won't, you are his guest. He will treat you nicely." said the house.
The thief was puzzled. He was curious to meet this 'friend'. He thought to himself that he would stay and see, and if the friend became unfriendly he would run away. The thief was so curious that he was ready to risk getting caught .
In the evening the friend came back from the farm.
The house said, " friend, we have a guest today."
" Welcome ", said the friend, "who are you and what brings you here? What can I do for you?"
The thief did not know what to say. The house said,"he is a thief and has come here to steal."
"Oh! I am sorry then, there is not much here to steal, did you find anything? Take anything you want that I have got."
The thief kept looking at the man. He had never seen anyone like him before.
The thief thought to himself that the man must be crazy. He took his bag and started to leave.
The man called him, " here take my hat, you might need it." The thief was certain that this was a mad man. He took the hat and left.
At night the man came out side and started singing.
He sounded sad.
The tree asked the house, " why is the friend sad today?"
" Because he could not give the thief this moon" said the house.
It was a beautiful moon, and the house , the tree and the man sang till the next morning.
