A Christmas Tale For Childs

These were the last days of 1899. A girl was leaning against the wall, tired. The snow was covering his scarce clothes, and his little trembling hand stretched asking for an alms. A horse carriage stopped in front of her. The coachman hurried to open the door, and an old man, with some difficulty, descended from the carriage.

“Hello, little girl.”

“Sir...”

“I am coming to get you.”

“Why?”

“It's Christmas Eve, and I want you to come to dinner with my family.”

A smile was drawn on the girl's face. The old man took her by the hand and helped her into the carriage. When they reached the palace, a maiden escorted her to a large room. After bathing her in hot water, she helped her put on a beautiful pink dress that was on a large bed. That Christmas Eve was very special.

The next day, the girl told the old man:

“I must go. Thank you very much for your kindness. You are a wonderful family.”

And the old man answered her:

“I have a surprise for you. My grandson confessed to me that you saved his life a few days ago. If you hadn't intervened, he'd have been hit by a carriage. We don't want you back on the streets. We wanted to ask you to stay with us. So you enrich our lives with your smile. Please, just stay.”

And that's how the little girl found a home that would change the rest of her life.
