The Boy Who Wake Up The Sun
Once upon a time, there was a little boy living in a city with some kind people. He was a very early bird but not his friends, either his neighbors or all the people of the city.
He was waking up even before the sun gets up! But when the sun is here, with its amazing light, all the city gets up finally. One day the little bot got up, called the sun too many times to rise up, but the sun did not wake up. The early bird boy looked at the clock and was surprised that it is still dark…
Then he thought, his hands don’t reach the sky and his voice doesn’t reach the sun’s ear! He got very sad and opened the window completely to check the sky again, but it was stull dark and all the people sleeping! So, who will make the birds sing?
Who will grow the plants? Who will wake up the people of the city? He kept thinking all the time… :(
Then suddenly the sun woke up and the surprised little boy asked the sun: why are you late today? When I called you, why did you not rise in the sky? Why didn’t you answer me when I called you? The little boy was very upset, and without listening to the sun’s answer, he closed the window and drew the curtains. While he played a news channel, it was showing about a solar eclipse and after listening carefully to the news, he was ashamed of his bad behavior and ran to the window apologizing to the sun. The sun embraced the little boy and shone its beauty, kindness and brilliance in the boy’s heart.
