Author's Note: This is not a story I made up, in fact it's a short story I found online, and I thought I'd share it with YWS! Enjoy. <3
One day an old farmer's son was returning home from the market with the crate of chicken's his father had entrusted to him. Then, all of a sudden the box fell and broke open! Chickens scurried off in different directions, but the determined boy walked all over the neighbourhood scooping up the feathery escapees.He then returned them to the crate. Hoping he had found them all, the boy reluctantly returned home, expecting the worst.
"Pa, the chickens got loose," the boy confessed sadly, then painted on a smile "but I managed to find all twelve of them."
"Well, you did real good, son," the farmer beamed. "You left with seven."
The boy looked up at his father, shocked.
