Kabil And The Colourful Ball

There was once an old farmer who had a little farm. He lived alone
in a very small hut. The old farmer did not have any family but he had his animals who loved him very much.
There was Kabil the camel, Gazi the goat, Saad the sheep, Alif the rooster and Dodi the kitten living on the farm with him.

One day the old farmer had to go to town. He fed all the animals and left them in the field near the farm. Kabil, Gazi, and Saad were good friends.They like to do things together. They were playing happily and grazing in the field. All of a sudden, Kabil kicked on something. It was round and colorful. Kabil found a colorful ball. All the other animals ran to look at the ball. Kabil was very proud he found it. Kabil kicked the ball and it rolled. Gazi chased after it. “Stop!” cried Kabil. “That ball is mine. Only I can chase it. I don’t want to share it with anyone!” he said. Gazi and Saad were very angry with Kabil. They decided not to play with him.

Kabil was left alone with the ball. Gazi and Saad played together. They had lots of fun. Aun the owl joined them. So did Alif the rooster and Dodi the kitten. Kabil still did not care. He kicked the ball and chased after it. He then kicked the ball again and chased the ball again. But no one was looking at him. Worse! He was getting tired of chasing the ball all by himself. Kabil glanced at his friends. They were having lots of fun together. “How nice to play ball with my friends.” he thought.” I am sure everyone will enjoy playing together.” He sighed and trotted back to the field. Kabil knew he was not kind to his friends. All they wanted was to play together. He stood and watched his friends chasing each other.

Suddenly Gazi shouted.” Hey, Kabil. Do you want to play with us?” Kabil was surprised. “Yes. I would love to play with all of you. Here, take this ball. We can all play together." He galloped cheerfully. All the animals played with the ball happily together. Kabil knew his friends were very kind. “From now on, I will share everything with my friends.” he thought.
