A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree .

A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday .

He climbed to the treetop, ate the apples, took a nap under the shadow ...

He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him .

Time went by...the little boy had grown up ,

And he no longer played around the tree every day .

One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad .

" Come and play with me," the tree asked the boy .

" I am no longer a kid, I do not play around trees any more "

The boy replied .

" I want toys. I need money to buy them ."

" Sorry, but I do not have money ...

But you can pick all my apples and sell them .

So, you will have money .

" The boy was so excited .

He grabbed all the apples on the tree and left happily .

The boy never came back after he picked the apples .

The tree was sad .

One day, the boy who now turned into a man returned

And the tree was excited "Come and play with me" the tree said .

" I do not have time to play. I have to work for my family .

We need a house for ****ter .

Can you help me ?

" Sorry ",

I do not have any house. But you can chop off my branches

To build your house .

" So the man cut all the branches of the tree and left happily .

The tree was glad to see him happy but the man never came back since then .

The tree was again lonely and sad .

One hot summer day ,

The man returned and the tree was delighted ..

" Come and play with me!" the tree said .

" I am getting old. I want to go sailing to relax myself .

" Can you give me a boat ?"

" Said the man ".

" Use my trunk to build your boat .

You can sail far away and be happy ..

" So the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat .

He went sailing and never showed up for a long time .

Finally, the man returned after many years .

" Sorry, my boy. But I do not have anything for you anymore .

No more apples for you ...

" The tree said ".

" No problem, I do not have any teeth to bite

" The man replied .

" No more trunk for you to climb on "

" I am too old for that now" the man said .

" I really cannot give you anything ...

The only thing left is my dying root ,"

The tree said with tears ..

" I do not need much now, just a place to rest .

I am tired after all these years" the man replied .

" Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on and rest ,

Come, come sit down with me and rest .

" The man sat down and the tree was glad and smiled with tears ...

This is you and the tree is your parent . !!!!!
