"WILLIE" motivational short story


learning English by story

Willie was very happy in his pond. He was born there, and up until now, he had spent all his life swimming and playing. He was the fastest tadpole, and everyone knew it. He would swim from here to there and back again. He loved to swim. 

The pond where he grew up was next to a big house. Sometimes the children would come out to swim in the pond. The children always made so much noise when they were in the pond that it frightened Willie and his friends. The children would splash and jump up and down. Willie did not like the children. They were so noisy and scary. Willie liked it better when the pond was quiet, especially at night. When this happened, all of them would hide. 

Willie spent all his time in the water. Sometimes he would go deep and swim in the mud. Sometimes, at night, he would go to the surface and look at the moon. It was a fun time in his life, but soon things were going to change. 

One day, Willie realized that he was no longer the fastest tadpole. Even though he tried and tried, he could not win. He looked down at himself, and he noticed something funny. He was getting fat, and he also had something new. There were strange things growing out from his body. What was happening to him? 

As the days passed, Willie kept changing. He was getting fatter and fatter, and those things on his body were getting longer. When he wagged his tail to swim, he did not go anywhere. Soon he had no tail at all. It had disappeared. 

He moved the things that were growing out of his body. When he moved them, he moved very quickly through the water. He did it again, and he went even faster. This was new for him. He liked this new way of swimming. 

Unexpectedly, he began to feel something funny. He needed to go to the top of the water. When he got there, he took a deep breath. For some reason, he had to breathe. He could not stay in the water all the time anymore. 

One day, he was swimming around the pond so fast that he popped out of the water and onto the ground at the edge of the pond. He was so surprised. He turned around and tried to swim back into the water, but it did not work. He sat for a long time trying to figure out how he could get back into the pond.

 Just then, he heard a sound. It went, “Hoo, hoo.” 

He was so scared that he jumped into the water. He dove to the bottom of the pond. He stayed there for a while, but then he had to go to the surface again. He took a big breath of air. 

At night when the sky was clear, he enjoyed sitting in the shallow water with his head out of the water looking up at the moon. He liked his new body and how it worked. 

The next day, two of his old friends swam over to where Willie was sitting. 

They said to him, “Hey Willie, what are you doing?”

 “I’m resting,” he replied. 

“Why are you so tired?” they asked.

 “I don’t know. I get tired of swimming all the time,” Willie responded. 

One of the frogs looked at Willie, and asked, “Willie, why are you brown? All of us are green. What happened to you?” 

Willie looked down at himself. Sure enough, he was brown, and they were green.

 “I don’t know,” replied Willie. “I’ve never noticed this before.” 

The others began to laugh and tease Willie. 

“Willie is brown and we are green! Boy does Willie look funny!” they would sing.

 He did not like the teasing. He did not want to be different. He wanted to be just like everyone else. 

Willie got upset, so he swam away to be by himself.

He decided to go exploring. He was afraid, but somehow, he knew this was what he was supposed to do. He crawled slowly out of the water, hopped up into the tall wet grass, and stretched his legs. As he looked around, he saw a dead tree lying on the ground. He jumped up onto it, so he could see more. 

He was excited and scared at the same time. This was all so new to him. 

Hopping off the log, he moved slowly through the damp grass. He heard many strange new sounds. He was exploring and he was enjoying it. 

He was hungry, but he did not know what to eat. He heard a noise under a rock. He slowly moved closer and closer to see what it was. He saw a black bug making noise with its back legs. Suddenly, Willie’s tongue snapped at the insect. He caught it, and then he had the bug in his mouth. It tasted so good. He looked for more of those noisy bugs to eat. 

After hunting for crickets, he got tired. He made a hole under the rock and took a nap. 

When he woke up, he left the hole. He climbed up onto the top of the log again. Something happened he was not expecting. His throat puffed up like a balloon. Then he made a really loud sound. 

“Croak, croak!” was the sound he made. 

He liked the sound. He did it over and over again. 

Just then, he heard a voice. 

“What are you doing?” the voice asked. 

“I’m not really sure. Why do you ask?” Willie answered. 

Then a brown frog hopped out of the grass. It looked just like Willie! 

“Who are you?” Willie asked. 

“I’m Wanda. Who are you?” she replied. 

“I’m Willie the frog,” he responded. 

Wanda laughed, “You’re not a frog.”

 “I’m not?” Willie asked.

“No, you’re a toad,” Wanda informed him. 

“A TOAD?! What’s a toad?” Willie answered, very surprised. 

Wanda explained to him that toads like to be on the ground in the tall grass. Frogs like to be in the water. 

Now Willie knew why the frogs had teased him. He was not a frog at all. He was a toad!

"All the Difference in The World' An English Story in Short Every Sunday morning I take a light jog around a park near my home. There’s a lake located in one corner of the park. Each time I jog by th is lake, I see the same elderly woman sitting at the water’s edge with a small metal cage sitting beside her. This past Sunday my curiosity got the best of me, so I stopped jogging and walked over to her. As I got closer, I realized that the metal cage was in fact a small trap. There were three turtles, unharmed, slowly walking around the base of the trap. She had a fourth turtle in her lap that she was carefully scrubbing with a spongy brush. “Hello,” I said. “I see you here every Sunday morning. If you don’t mind my nosiness, I’d love to know what you’re doing with these turtles.” She smiled. “I’m cleaning off their shells,” she replied. “Anything on a turtle’s shell, like algae or scum, reduces the turtle’s ability to absorb heat and impedes its ability to swim.

SHORT STORY : THE RUBICON Short stories  I was a cold, vaporous dawn, the glass rising, and the wind fallen to a light air still from the north-east. Our creased and sodden sails scarcely answered to it as we crept across the oily swell to Langeoog. 'Fogs and calms,' Davies prophesied. The Blitz was astir when we passed her, and soon after steamed out to sea. Once over the bar, she turned westward and was lost to view in the haze. I should be sorry to have to explain how we found that tiny anchor-buoy, on the expressionless waste of grey. I only know that I hove the lead incessantly while Davies conned, till at last he was grabbing overside with the boat-hook, and there was the buoy on deck. The cable was soon following it, and finally the rusty monster himself, more loathsome than usual, after his long sojourn in the slime. 'That's all right,' said Davies. 'Now we can go anywhere.' 'Well, it's Norderney, isn't it? We've settled that.' &#

"A BIRD IN A CAGE" An English Story in Short learning English by story One day, when I was a young bird, my life completely changed. I do not know how long ago it was, but I still remember flying through the sky looking down at the green forest below.  All of a sudden, while I was looking for food, everything went black.  I crashed into something soft and was unable to move. I struggled to get loose, but I was not able to get free. I was put into a box. The walls were very hard, and I did not have much room to move. I hit the walls with my wings and yelled for help. After a while, since no one came to help me, I just gave up.  Inside the box, I found some water and food to eat. I do not know how long I was in the box.  Suddenly, the box opened and a bright light blinded me. I dropped to the ground. I felt the warmth of the sun on my back. It took a minute for my eyes to adjust to the light. When I was able to see, I looked around. I was FREE!  I stretched my wings and waved t
