Once, there was a poor boy, who made a living by selling various things from door to door. This was the way he earned money to pay for his school.

One day, as he was walking from house to house as usual, he felt very hungry and weak. He decided to ask for food at a house. He knocked on the door, and was surprised to see a beautiful young girl open the door. And then, he asked the girl for a glass of water.

The young girl understood his condition, and offered him a huge glass of milk. With an 1)astonished look, the boy drank the milk very slowly.

“How much do I owe you for this milk?” he asked her.

The girl replied, “I do not want any money for this.”

The boy thanked the girl from the bottom of his heart.

Years passed by, the young girl grew up. In her youth, unfortunately, she fell ill and was hard to cure. Many experienced doctors were baffled at her condition.

Dr. Kevin was called in by the hospital to 2)examine her. After months of hard work, he was finally able to get the disease under control. The girl was completely cured in the end.

Though the girl is cured, she was quite worried about how much the hospital bill would come to.

Finally, the girl was given the hospital bill. She was surprised to see that the bill had been crossed out and cancelled, and there was a note 3)underneath signed by Dr. Kevin.

“Bill paid years ago with a glass of milk!”

 

 

从前,有一个穷苦的男孩,靠着挨家挨户售卖各种东西糊口。这也是他赚取学费的方式。

有天,他跟往常一样挨家挨户地卖东西,他感到饥饿难耐,体力不支。他决定向一户人家讨要食物。他敲了敲门,惊奇地发现开门的是一个漂亮的年轻女孩。然后,他向女孩要了一杯水。

年轻的女孩看懂了他的处境,给了他一大杯牛奶。男孩一脸吃惊,极慢地喝下了这杯牛奶。

“这杯牛奶我要给你多少钱?”男孩问女孩。

女孩回答,“我不需要你为此付钱。”

男孩发自内心地感激这个女孩。

许多年过去了,年轻的女孩已然长大成人。可非常不幸地,她在花季的年纪患病了,并且难以治愈。很多经验丰富的医生都对她的病症束手无策。

后来凯文医生被医院请来为她看诊。经过多月的努力,他最终成功控制住了女孩的病情。最后,女孩痊愈了。

虽然女孩康复了,但她非常担心自己将要承担庞大的医疗费用。

最后,女孩拿到了医疗账单。她惊讶地发现,账单被划掉、费用被免除了。而账单下方是凯文医生的亲笔留言。

“多年前你已经用一杯牛奶支付了账单!”
