Now, the special English program of American storys.
Our story today is called "Prelude", it was writen by ***.
Here is *** with the story.

Selina Joe H was born in a cabin that had two rooms, one small window and dirt floor. Her parents Shark and Marty H built the little house in one day with helps of their families and friends. Selina Joe began to talk when she was one year old. By the time she was seven, her parents couldn't answer any of her questions. Selina Joe's big black eyes were full of curiosity, but her mind stayed hungry.

Her parents sent her to school for 6 months. They took her out as soon as she learned to read and write. Her parents had never learned. Selina Joe had to work on farm. She planted corn and sweet potatoes in the hard red earth. She fed the cows and built fenses. She cleaned the cabin and chopped wood. She did all the cooking and washed all the clothes. Her parent spent most of their time with uncles, ants, and cousins in the family who live nearby. All the H were like Selina Joe's parents. They couldn't read or write. They didn't like to work and they never took bath.

One Sunday when Selina Joe was sixteen years old, her parent took her to the town of the east filed. As they walked down the street, Selina Joe heard someone behind her whispered, "those are part of the H family! They are all dirty lazy people. Nerver work!" A few days later, Selina went back alone to east filed, she went into one of the stores. It was only a simple country store, but to Selina Joe, it was seen like a wonderful place. She looked at silk ribbons, and soft leather shoes. Selina Joe had never owed a pair of shoes, or a silk ribbon. In the back of the store, she found a dress. It was made ren cotton material with a little snow white squears (这个单词不知道是什么) on it. Selina Joe couldn't stop touching the dress. She asks the store owener how much the dress cost. "Five dollars", he said, "but I will sell it to you just for three."

That evening, after dinner, she told her father about the dress. Shark's face got red. "Are you crazy?" he yelled, "do you think I would buy you the dress?" "But..Pa.." Selina Joe said, "it only costs three dollars. I work hard and I've never asked you for anything before. Besides, I will pay it by myself." "How?" her father laughed.
