Little Andy

Little Andy was a 10 years old kid. Andy had a brother younger than him named Johnny . True that Andy was the oldest but unfortunately he was the trouble maker not his brother Johnny …

They both go to the same school . Johnny almost knows everything about his brother Andy and how was all the time the trouble maker in his class…

Andy used to lie all the time about everything in his life . He found that lying was easier than saying the truth…

Johnny tried to advise him all the time to say the truth but he couldn’t change Andy.  

Andy got used to put Johnny in trouble in front of his parents by lying at them so as not to carry any responsibility for his actions and because his parents knew Johnny well  they knew that Johnny wasn’t the one making trouble.

Sadly his parents trusted Johnny and believed him more than they believed Andy because of what he got used to do all the time… Lies and pranks weren’t the correct way to gain people’s trust…

Andy loved to prank people all the time as well and that made people get away of him …

Andy tried to have friends in school but unfortunately they quickly discovered how he was used to lie a lot and how he loved to put people in trouble that’s why they preferred to stay out of his way…

Moreover Andy pranked them a lot which was really annoying to them .

Actually Andy pranked everyone and lied to all…

Andy couldn’t understand why people got away from him because he believed that it was ok to lie and put people in trouble.

 

Once Andy was in school and wanted to prank his school friends so brought a toy snake from his house and hid it in his class and suddenly he screamed that he found a snake and all the class was in a mess and students kept running everywhere.

Another time he pranked his friends by giving them chocolate balls which weren’t weren’t at all chocolate, they were eggs covered with a thin chocolate layer on its crust !!!…

Actually he pranked his school friends a lot and used to make a big mess that put him in deep trouble and sent him directly to the school principal all the time ending in his being sent to detention as a result .

Not just that he used to tell a lot of lies to his friends that they stopped believing him . In the end his friends gave up on him and stopped talking to him and told him that It was enough for what he actually did to them .

Andy thought that it was ok to prank anyone and didn’t care about any consequences… He didn’t regret anything at all…

Johnny too had his share of his lies and pranks , whenever Andy wants to escape something he blamed Johnny for pushing him to do it…

Johnny was so sad from Andy because he lied a lot and not just that , he used to put him in trouble too…

Once Andy and Johnny were on their way to bring some grocery for their mother , on their way to the store ,Andy stopped at their neighbour’s house because he wanted to cut the chain of his dog . Johnny begged him not to do it but Andy didn’t care at all and he cut the chain of the dog !!!

As a result of that the dog escaped and when their neighbour came out of the house to see what happened , Andy ran leaving his brother Johnny to take the blame for everything . Poor Johnny had to take all the shouting and blaming …

Andy didn’t know that he will carry responsibility soon for his actions .

One day when his parents were out of the house , Andy and Johnny were watching television . Andy went to the kitchen and wanted to prank Johnny. Andy brought sugar , flour and cornstarch because he wanted to make some easy bombs to be thrown on Johnny.

He made the bombs and hanged them on the door trim line so that when he goes to kitchen and tries to open the door the bombs fall on him . Andy kept checking if Johnny was paying attention but he found that he slept on the couch so he took advantage of his sleeping  and went the bathroom to colour the soap with paint colours so that If Johnny washed his hands , his hands will be coloured .

Suddenly his parents came back and they found that Johnny was sleeping … Andy didn’t bear that in his mind when he prepared for his tricks … His father told them that he will wash his hands before they had their lunch … Andy panicked and tried to stop him but he couldn’t… his mother too was going to the kitchen so as to prepare food for them .

Andy tried to stop her too but she went anyway even when he tried to do his best stopping her …

Now both his parents will actually be coloured and covered with powder because of him …

Suddenly he found that both his parents yelling at both kids… Johnny woke up suddenly and didn’t know what has taken place …

His father had coloured hands and his face was coloured too because of the colours he put on the soap and his mother too came out of the kitchen covered with the powdered bombs that Andy made …

His parents were so angry and asked them both about who did that to them … Johnny told them that he didn’t do that because he only was watching television and then he slept … Andy stuttered and didn’t know what to say this time … His parents knew that he was the one to do that since he does that all the time but they wanted him to say the truth …

Andy kept saying different stories till they yelled at him and asked him to just stop and say the truth . Andy finally told them the truth and kept apologizing .

His parents decided that he had to take responsibility of his actions this time so that he stops lying and making pranks all the time …

They asked him to apologize to all the people he lied to or pranked and will buy all of them presents from his daily allowance and that will continue till he stops lying to people and annoying them .

They told him that he has has to start behaving and to stop losing people from around him …

Andy followed his parents’ words the following days … He bought presents to everyone he annoyed and was actually sorry this time…

People started to gain trust in him again by time because he was actually trying to change this time…

It was a tough lesson for Andy this time…
