少儿英语培训：The Candles 蜡烛
Once, there were two candles.
One candle was made from beeswax and the otherwas made from animals’ fat.
“I am much brighter than other candles, and I canlast longer than all of us can.
That’s why I should stand on a silver candle holder.” The beeswax candle was proud of herselfand said.
The candle made from animals’ fat envied the beeswax candle.
‘The beeswax candle must live a great and splendid life.‘
One day, there was a party in this house.
“I will be great at the party.” The Beeswax candle said arrogantly as if she was the hostess ofthe party.
Then, a master came in. “I have to light up a candle.” After saying this, he took the beeswaxcandle.
“The party must be wonderful!” The animal fat candle was left behind and became lonelier.
At that time, one little boy appeared with his torn basket at the kitchen door.
In the basket, there were five or six potatoes and one apple.
A mistress of the house gave them to this poor boy.
“I will give you this candle, too.” The mistress slipped the animal fat candle into the boy’shand.
The little boy was very happy and went back to his house.
‘Where am I going?‘ The candle finally arrived at a poor and small hut.
Three children and a mother were living in that small room with a low–ceiling.
The candle stood on an iron candlestick.”This is too much!”
The candle grumbled to himself regretting for his miserable situation.
‘The beeswax candle, went to the party, she must be standing on a great silver candle holderat this time.‘
The Candle made from animals’ fat envied the beeswax candle very much.
The mother prepared dinner by boiling potatoes and peeling the apple.
The three children and the mother had dinner happily.
The animal fat candle shone their table brightly.”This candle is very bright!” The boy said.
“God bless this kind lady!” The mother prayed.
It was a poor but peaceful and happy family.
The animal fat candle felt happy as he enjoyed shining brightly for this family.
