Now the Special English Program American Sotries.

Our story today is called “The White Circle”, it was written by John Bell Coliton. Here is Shep O’Neal to tell you the story.

As soon I saw Avol sitting in the apple tree, I knew we would fight, I also knew he would win. But winning or losing was not important, at least not so important as getting him down from the tree. The tree was mine. It was a young tree and had 13 beautiful apples on it. Now my beautiful apples under Anvol’s shirt.

The tree became mine the day about 12 years old. Father called me to come the barn to see the new young horses. When I got there, father lid a cigarette and placed one foot on the fence. He looked pleased and proud.

“Toker!” he finally said, “this is a big day. There before you, the five of finest horses in all Virginia. Now how would give you a gift for your birthday. Could you make a choice?”

“Yes.” I said.
“Which one?” he asked.
“I would like to have the apple tree across the road.”

Father looked at me for a long time. You have known how much enough horses to undstand I looked on his face. But I was 12 years old. How could I explain my choices?

It was something about the apple tree, the colour of the red apples as they hung among green leaves. But it was more than this, it had something to do with being proud. I could give one of apples to my friend Jenny.

“Jenny,” I would say, “ I want to give you this apple, it come form my tree. The tree grows on my father’s land.”

Before my father had the land, it belong to his father. And for that to his father, now I own the tree. Because of this, I am tried to all my people of long ago way back mouse on all the Bible people.

Father find the answer, “now right, son, if you want tree more than the horse, the tree is yours.”
