One day, when I was a grade 1 student, My father bought for me a
My little snow lamb became a big sheep and my father looked at it in a different eye.
One day, after school, as usual, I wanted to take the sheep to the near by forest. However, my little white sheep was no more in the barn. I looked for it in different places but, the sheep was no where in the planet.
I asked my step mom whether she saw it or not and he said, “no, I haven’t seen your sheep”.
The night came, but not my snow-white sheep. I worried a lot and felt sad as if I lost my brother or sister or some body I love. Thinking it might lost somewhere in the forest, I determined to find it by the next day .
In the evening my step mom gave me a delicious roasted meat dinner. I had my diner with difficulty and went to bed. Thinking where could my sheep in the world be , I could sleep hardly that night. I promised to myself, I would never go to school until I find my sheep. This time, when my dad learned that I had determined not to go to school unless I find my sheep, trying to escape from my interpretive eyes, he told me that he slaughtered the white sheep and asked me a big mercy for his crime.
I cried a lot and no one could stop me. NO ONE. I hated my Dad because he killed my friend, the innocent creature. I hate my step mom, because she was in the plot with my dad. I hated myself, because I ate my dearest white sheep’s meat.
I couldn’t know why he wanted to such a big crime since he could buy meat from a butchery.
