The Only Tree Left
I was walking past the great forests of Tree Land and thinking to myself ‘Where are all the trees?’ So I walked up to the only tree left and asked “Where is your family?” The tree didn’t reply but stood there still slowly starting to shed its leaves. I went closer and whispered to it “Don’t you worry, I’ll help you find the kidnapper.” I moved forward and saw someone loading log-wood into his truck. I quickly went up to him and “You are under arrest!” The strange man started laughing hilariously. I said “You are arrested in the charge of kidnapping and murdering the tree family.” The strange man continued to laugh and drove off the forest. I went back to the only lonely tree left and said “I promise to get you back your family with all the more happiness.” I left the forest and went to a nursery and bought some two hundred seedlings. Without wasting any time I called up all my schoolmates and asked them to reach the forest as fast as possible and with as much water as they could carry. On reaching the forest I found most of my schoolmates waiting there with a tank full of water. They were anxious and were waiting for me to say the reason for such a meeting. I told them the whole incident and we together decided to build up the forest again. Everyone was given ten seedlings and five buckets of water. We completed our planting till dusk and waving a goodbye to the tree we left because the sky had been cloudy all day long. After almost a week I came back to the forest and saw the “only tree left” of the last week green and shady. I went and was about to hug the tree just when it dropped an apple, a deep red apple on me, as a sign of gratitude. I hugged the tree and waved a goodbye to it while it was swaying its leaves to me.
