A Glass of Milk
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!”
