Now the Special English Program, American Stories.

Our story today is called The White Circle. It was written by John Bill Klaten Coliton. Here is Shep O’neel O’neal to tell you the story.

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

The tree became mine the day I was 12 years old. Father called me to come to the bound barn to see the new young horses. When I got there, father lit a cigarette and placed one foot on the fence. He looked pleased and proud.
“Tocca”, he finally said, “This is a big day. There before you are fabled our five of the finest horses in all the geniur Virginia. Now I 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 would have to know how much he loved horses to understand the look on his face, but I was 12 years old. How could I explain my choice?
It was something of out about the apple tree. The color of the red apples as they hung among the green leaves, but it was * more than this. It had something to do with being proud. I can give one of the apples to my friend Jenny. Jenny, I would say, I want to give you this apple. It came from my tree. The tree grows on my father’s land. Before my father had the land, it belonged to his father, and before that, to his father, now, I own the tree, because it is, I’m tied to all my people of long ago wait way back the moses and all bad Bible people.
Father finally answered, “All right, son. If you want the tree more than the horse, the tree is yours.”
