The real pearl necklace

分类:英语情感故事   更新:2015/11/17   来源:本站原创

    Jenny was a bright-eyed, pretty five-year-old girl.

    One day when she and her mother were checking out at the grocery store, Jenny saw a plastic pearl1 necklace priced at $2.50. How she wanted that necklace, and when she asked her mother if she would buy it for her, her mother said, "Well, it is a pretty necklace, but it costs an awful lot of money. I'll tell you what. I'll buy you the necklace, and when we get home we can make up a list of chores that you can do to pay for the necklace.

    An don't forget that for your birthday Grandma just might give you a whole dollar bill, too. Okay?" Jenny agreed, and her mother bought the pearl necklace for her.

    Jenny worked on her chores very hard every day, and sure enough, her grandma gave her a brand-new dollar bill for her birthday. Soon Jenny had paid off the pearls2. How Jenny loved those pearls. She wore them everywhere to kindergarten, bed and when she went out with her mother to run errands3.

    The only time she didn't wear them was in the shower. Her mother had told her that they would turn her neck green!

    Jenny had a very loving daddy. When Jenny went to bed, he would get up from his favorite chair every night and read Jenny her favorite story.

    One night when he finished the story, he said, "Jenny, do you love me?"

    "Oh yes, Daddy, you know I love you," the little girl said.

    "Well, then, give me your pearls."

    "Oh! Daddy, not my pearls!" Jenny said. "But you can have Rosy4, my favorite doll. Remember her? You gave her to me last year for my birthday. And you can have her tea party outfit5, too. Okay?"

    "Oh no, darling, that's okay."Her father brushed her cheek with a kiss. "Good night, little one."
