The Disobedient Boy

Short Story - The Disobedient Boy

There was a boy who was very fond of cashew nuts.

His mother gave him a few nuts. The boy always wanted for more nuts. He always asked his mother “Mummy, give me some more nuts”. But his mother always replied “Too many nuts is not good, my son. If you eat too many at a time you will get stomach-pain”.

One day his mother had been to the market and no one was at home except the boy. He went into the kitchen and took the cashew nut jar. He ate and ate unto the last nut.

The next day he twitched with stomach-pain.
