داستان علی بابا و چهل دزد قسمت سوم و آخر

He did more. To make his guest as welcome as possible, when he saw the captain had unloaded his mules, and that they were put into the stables as he had ordered, he was looking for a place to pass the night in the air, and he brought him into the hall where he received his company. The captain excused himself on pretence of not being troublesome; but really to have room to execute his design.

 

Ali Baba, not content to keep company with the man who had a design on his life, continued talking with him till the supper was ended, and repeating his offer of service. The captain rose up at the same time; and while Ali Baba went to speak to Morgiana he withdrew into the yard, under pretence of looking at his mules.

داستان علی بابا و چهل دزد قسمت دوم

Morgiana went to her mistress, and Ali Baba followed her. "Well, brother," said she, with great impatience, "what news do you bring me of my husband? I perceive no comfort in your countenance." "Sister," answered Ali Baba, "I cannot satisfy your inquiries unless you hear my story from the beginning to the end, without speaking a word; for it is of as great importance to you as to me to keep what has happened secret."

 "Alas!" said she, "this preamble lets me know that my husband is not to be found; but at the same time I know the necessity of the secrecy you require, and I must constrain myself: say on, I will hear you." 

Ali Baba then detailed the incidents of his journey, till he came to the finding of Cassim's body. "Now," said he, "sister, I have something to relate which will afflict you the more, because it is perhaps what you so little expect; but it cannot now be remedied; if my endeavours can comfort you, I offer to put that which God hath sent me to what you have, and marry you: assuring you that my wife will not be jealous, and that we shall live happily together. If this proposal is agreeable to you, we must think of acting so as that my brother should appear to have died a natural death. I think you may leave the management of the business to Morgiana, and I will undertake all that lies in my power for your consolation."

داستان کوتاه

A Dance in the Forest

 

In a very big forest there lived many animals and birds.  One day the some of the birds were discussion about the way the animals live.  The parrot said,  “Look at me I do not eat any bird or animal I just like fruits and eat them all the time.  I hate looking at these animals as they hunt other animals and eat them”.  I feel that we the birds are the best in the forest as we do not eat other birds for our survival”. 

Many birds agreed to this argument and narrated their own opinions: 

The sparrow said:  I eat the small insects that do harm to others that does not mean that I am like these animals who kill all other good animals. 

The woodpecker said:  See I protect trees by eating the white ants under their bark.  If I do not do so many trees would have been eaten away by these white ants and other insects. 

The weaver bird:  You are aware that I am the best in the forest in making the nest.  Show me any animal that can do like me.  These animals are lazy and live like rocks in all seasons. 

The humming bird said: I drink the nectar from the flowers and while doing so I do not harm the flowers.  If help in pollination and make the forest look colourful with many flowers.
