Short Story - The Boy and the Apple

A poor boy who lived in Hailakandi worked at the house of a minister.

One day while sweeping the floors of the minister’s house, the poor boy saw the son of the minister eating an apple. Now, the rich color of the apple brought water in his mouth and he craved for a piece of it.

Instead of asking the minister’s son for the apple, the poor boy closed his eyes and imagined himself in an apple orchard. Then he plucked one of the best apples from the orchard and ate it. After that, he opened his eyes. He was contented and happy.
