Tony the Lonely Goat

Tony was a very lonely goat. He was often seen roaming the mountains in search of a friend. One day, when he went to the river and saw a small goat in the water, he bleated joyfully, “Would you be my friend?” The fishes in the river laughed aloud, “You stupid goat, that’s your reflection you’re talking to!” Tony was surprised. While walking back home, tears welled up in his eyes and he thought, “I am so unlucky, I don’t have any friend nor any siblings.” As soon as he reached home, his father hugged him tight. “Welcome, Tony, see what we have here for you!” Tony hurriedly went to the backyard and saw a little white goat lying beside his mother. “That’s your sister!” exclaimed his mother. Tony bleated happily, “I will never be lonely again!”
