A Cruel Act
“Mum, can I go to the park for a walk? I am bored to ore “Jason said, His mother, knowing that Jason was an extremely active boy, agreed to the request.
Jason walked to the park, his favourite place to be in when he was bored as there were interesting things to see and do. He spotted a puppy which was on its own. The puppy seemed happy and interested to play with him.
Jason had a mischievous idea in his head. He picked up a rock and threw it in the direction of the dog. He meant to see if the dog would be frightened but the rock hit the poor puppy. The puppy whined and ran off. Then it came back again. Jason found it fun to look at the dog’s reaction so he did it again. Two rocks became three and then four. The poor puppy was getting angry but Jason was laughing so loudly that he did not hear the puppy growling.
The next moment, as Jason was about to turn and leave, the puppy charged from behind and bit him hard on his buttocks! Jason gave out a loud scream and he jumped about in excruciating pain. Some passers-by laughed at his reaction.
Just then, the dog’s owner came. He asked Jason what had happened. Jason was rather honest. He apologised to the owner for what he had done. The owner did not reprimand him since the puppy had given Jason a taste of his own medicine. He simply advised Jason to be kind to animals.
Jason walked home feeling ashamed of himself. He decided not to be so mischievous anymore.
