The Blind Beggar Boy

Posted by admin

Once there was a blind boy called Freddy. He lived with his cruel father. His father forced him to work, but he could not do anything. One day his father said to him, ?A blind boy can?t do anything! You are useless to me! Now you must go out into the world and live on your own. Go away!?
\
The poor blind boy went out with his faithful dog, Fan. She led her master everywhere carefully and earned money by showing some clever tricks. Form morning till night they walked begging for food and money, and they slept by the roadside.
\
One night, Freddy had a dream that a beautiful fairy came to him and said softly, ?Freddy, Freddy, can you see me??
\
Freddy replied, ?Oh no, I can?t. I am blind.?
\
?Poor little boy. Don?t be sad. Perhaps I can help you,? said fairy.
\
?Can you give me my sight? Can you really make me see?? Asked Freddy.
\
?No, I can?t do that, but you can help yourself. Every time you are kind to someone or do something good, a little light will come into your eyes and you sill see a little better. But every time you are selfish or unkind, the light will go out and you will become blinder than you were before,? said the fairy.
\
?Thank you for your kindness, I?ll be happy enough for that,? answered Freddy.
\
That morning he got up full of hope and Fan seemed to be happy too. ?Come on Fan, I am going to see! You must help me because I cannot do much without you, my dear,? the boy said.
\
One night, Fan and Freddy walked down the road. Freddy heard an old beggar woman who was very sick and almost died crying sadly. ?Give me some food please,? asked the old woman. Freddy felt very sorry for the old woman and gave her the last piece of his bread. As soon as the old woman thanked him, a flash o flight came to his eyes and the world seemed lighter.
\
?Oh! Fan, the dream is really true! My eyes become less blind with kindness,? the boy said happily. That night he slept happily without supper in his stomach. The next morning, Freddy felt very hungry. At that time, a hen passed by. Fan quickly caught it and brought it to her master.
\
?That?s very good Fan. We are going to sell it for some food. Now, lead me to the market,? the boy said.
\
Suddenly a dark cloud came over his eyes. He soon realized that he did something wrong. So he brought the hen to the owner. When Freddy gave the hen back to its owner, the world seemed brighter. He continued doing good deeds. Before long, he could see the dark shadow of everything.
\
One day, he heard a man?s voice crying for help, ?Help me! Help me! I am drowning!? Freddy did not know what to do. How could a blind boy help a man from drowning? He was worried and said to himself, ?How can I help him? Ah, Fan can swim. She is clever and strong. She can help save the man, but if Fan drowns, I can not live without her.? The man called out, ?Help me! Help me!? Without thinking, Freddy pushed Fan away. ?Go Fan! Go help him!? Freddy waited nervously.
\
At last he heard the man climbing out of the water. He walked to the man, and he couldn?t hear Fan. He began to cry. ?Fan! Fan! Oh! Fan! My dear Fan! Oh no! How will I live without you? You are my only friend in the world,? the boy cried. The man felt sorry for the boy. ?I am sorry. Please don?t cry. I will give you another dog for your kindness,? the man said. Freddy turned to the man?s voice. Yes, he could see! He lost his dog, but he found his eyesight! ?Oh! Are you Freddy? You are my son and I am your father,? the man replied, ?please forgive me and stay with me. I will never be cruel to you again.? Finally Freddy forgave him and told him how he could see. He lived happily with his father and another dog called Fan, to remind him of his faithful friend.
