Class, our lesson for today is to test your listening skill. I will read to you a story entitled “Abad and Azad”. Listen carefully as I read the story.
Abad and Azad
A long time ago in a barangay by the sea, there lived two very good friends-Abad and Azad. They were only fourteen years old and because they had no more parents, they decided to live together by the seashore and catch fish for a living. Abad and Azad loved each other like brothers. They were good to everybody, too. They always helped others. They gave fish to people who had nothing to eat. It was surprising therefore that the people in the barangay loved them. Abad and Azad usually went fishing in their boats at night. Whenever they were separated especially on rainy nights, Abad would swing his lamp to the left, to the right and so on. Seeing the light, Azad would shout very, very loud. In that way, they would find their way to each other. One day, Abad fell ill. Azad was beside himself with grif. He did not know what to do. He could only sit by his friend and cry. “Don’t cry Azad. If I should die, let’s accept it.”
“But what will I do? What will happen to me?” sobbed Azad. “Even if I die, God will not separate us-for long,” Abad murmured. Abad died and not long after, Azad fell ill too, and died. Even after death, the friends were together. They now roamed the heavens, instead of the sea. Whenever they are separated, Abad would swing his lamp first to the left, then to the right, and so on. Seeing the light, Azad would shout his friends’ name and they would find their way to each other. This is why in the dark and rainy days, we see Abad’s light sharply flashing across the sky and we hear Azad’s loud booming voice finding its way to Abad.
