The Monkey and The Crab
Long ago, at the foot of a mountain, lived a crab. On a warm spring day, the crab walked leisurely along a nearby river. Suddenly a big rice ball dropped in front of her. “Oh my God! What a good thing I found” she said to herself.
Then a monkey came. He wanted to have the rice ball, so he said, “Hey, let’s trade the rice ball with my fruit seed. This seed is better that that rice ball. When you eat the rice ball, it disappears, but if you put this seed on the ground, it will grow and produce a lot of fruits.” The crab agreed to exchange the rice ball. Then she took the seed home and planted it.
Soon the seed grew into a small bud and became a big tree. It made a lot of red fruits. The crab wanted to eat the fruit but she could not climb the tree. Then, the monkey came again, climbing the tree and eating the fruits. The crab begged the monkey to pick some for her and her kids.

This creates frozen water droplets that fall to the earth, melting along the way. It is during this stage that lightning and thunder and strong winds and rain occur.
The third stage of a thunderstorm, called the dissipating stage, occurs when a cold air pushes to the ground essentially cutting off the thunderstorm’s inflow.A thunderstorm is a type of weather phenomenon characterized by lightning and thunder and in most cases, rain.

Our cat, Ella is a fussy eater. I often stand in front of the cat food section in a supermarket agonizing over what Madame Ella would now fancy. One day she will happily eat fish out of can. The next day she will give it a sniff and walk away.
This happens with many other varieties of food as well – and there have been several occasions when she has refused to eat anything for two days.
Recently, we were sitting in our lounge room when Ella jumped through the window and deposited a dead mouse onto the floor. After making sure we had all seen her catch, she picked it up, walked over to her feeding bowl in the kitchen and dropped to eat it.

When I was eleven years old, I had a big accident. I get scared even now when I think about that time. I went skating near my house. There were many people, and I saw some of them were falling on the ice.

Suddenly, I stepped on something that was not hard. What was it? It was a weak place in the ice. When I stepped there, I sank under the ice. I thought that I was going to die, but I did my best to grab something to get out from under the ice. I tried to grab the edge of the ice, but it was very difficult for an eleven-year old.
