It was a hot summer day. Little Billy felt thirsty and worn out. He stopped for a while and saw a clear stream flowing.
“The water is cold and my body is hot. Mamma said that is’s not good to drink water when you are out in the sun,” thought Billy.
“What do I care,” came the second thought. He drank the icy cold water. Suddenly, Billy felt weak and fainted the next moment.
When his eyes opened, he found himself in bed with high fever. “The water of the stream was really bad,” said Billy.
“No, Billy, you are wrong. This happens when kids do not listen to their parents,” replied his mother.
Billy felt very sorry, so his mother gave him a hug and took him to a duck pond when he was well again.
