The Two Children Left Behind

The Two Children Left Behind Told by Frank Kenneth of Emil Lowi This is the story. It is about a man and his wife. They had two children. One of them was a girl and the other was a boy. The girl was about ten years old while the boy was only about two years of age. He did not grow up properly and this caused him to be unable to look after himself. He needed to be given special attention because of his disability. The mother and the father of the children were keen gardeners and spent a lot of their time in the garden. They wanted to have a large garden with plenty of yams. So they cleared a large area of land for the garden. They allowed the bush that they'd cut to dry in the sun for a few days. When it had dried enough, they set fire to it and burned it all to ashes. In the past, people used fire to clean up the place, as there were no tools such as knives and axes to make their gardens like people use today.

He needed to be given special attention because of his disability. The mother and the father of the children were keen gardeners and spent a lot of their time in the garden. They wanted to have a large garden with plenty of yams. So they cleared a large area of land for the garden. They allowed the bush that they'd cut to dry in the sun for a few days. When it had dried enough, they set fire to it and burned it all to ashes.
