short stories (sample text for oral test)


      There was  a farmer who had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the pups and set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he Felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the Eyes of a little boy.
      Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."  "Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, "these pups come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."
      The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents, Is that enough to take a look?"
"Sure," said the farmer.
     And with that he let out a whistle,"Here,Dolly!" he called . Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight.
    As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse. Slowly another little ball appeared; this One noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward manner the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up....
"I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt.
    The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy. It will never be able to run and play with you like the other pups would."
    With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself To a specially made shoe. Looking back up at the farmer, he said, "You see sir, I don't run too well myself, and he will need Someone who understands."So he bought the puppy from the farmer and named it lucky because he feels that the puppy was very lucky to have a master that understands how he felt .

   After bringing lucky home from that farm the little boy showed the handicap pup to his parents. His mum and dad understood how the boy felt and allowed the boy to keep it. He brought Lucky up to his room and prepared a place for Lucky to sleep . The next morning the boy saw that Lucky was sick . He tried to give Lucky some milk but Lucky wouldn't  drink it . He tried doing everything he could to help the sick handicap pup but nothing worked so finally he tried asking his parents for some help . They brought him to a vet for a check up to see what's wrong with the pup . 

  The veterinarian said to try and bring the pup to his mother because the pup wasn't actually sick but he might be missing his mum seeing that he is barely 2 weeks old . So the little boy decides to bring Lucky to visit the farm where his mother and siblings are and it worked . It turns out that Lucky actually misses the presence of his mother and siblings after seeing them Lucky looked so happy . So the boy had decided to bring Lucky on a walk everyday to that farm so that he'll be happy since that  Lucky and the boy had lived happily . 
    The moral of the story is that the world is full of people and animals who need someone to understand how they feel .

@Balqis Wins: i can't actually remember the tittle but it's a moral value short story the original story was shorter though barely enough to be made into oral test material so i added somethings to the story you can use it if you want the title is your choice.

@anonymous (Feb 5): allow me to correct you for a minute there your sentence should be "are you sure you really want to use this story for your oral test" and as for the question yes you may I've used it in mine in the past and there was no problems with it so feel free to extract this story as your oral task material.

@anonymous (Jan 30): thank you feel free to use it as yours for your oral task.

to all I'm sorry for the late response i wasn't aware of your comments and I've been quite busy with studies anyway if you have any questions feel free to drop by EC101 FB page and I'll try to help you out there good luck and happy studying everyone.
