The Lonely Giant

Once upon a time, in a cozy little house, lived a happy family. Every morning, they would wake up and have a delicious breakfast of cereal and orange juice. But one day, they were shocked to find that their cereal and orange juice were gone, and their toys had been played with!

“Who could have done this?” the father asked, puzzled.

“I don’t know,” the mother replied, “but we need to figure it out before it happens again.”

The son, who was very clever, had an idea. “I’ll stay up all night and catch the culprit in the act,” he said.

That night, the son hid under the sofa, waiting for the mysterious thief to appear. He waited and waited, but nothing happened. Just when he was about to give up, he heard a loud noise. Suddenly, a huge giant appeared in the room!

The giant ate all the cereal and drank all the orange juice, and played with the toys. The boy was shocked, but he stayed hidden under the sofa, watching the giant.

After a while, the giant finished his feast and sat down with a contented sigh. The boy could not believe his eyes – the giant was huge! But he was also lonely and sad, and the boy felt sorry for him.

“Hello,” the boy said, coming out from under the sofa. “Why are you doing this?”

The giant was startled, and tried to scare the boy. But the boy was not afraid. Instead, he smiled and offered the giant a hug.

“I’m sorry,” the giant said, “I have no family and I’m looking for some comfort.”

The boy felt even more sorry for the giant, and he had an idea. “Why don’t you come live with us?” he asked.

The giant’s eyes lit up, and he gratefully accepted the boy’s offer. The boy’s parents were surprised, but they were kind-hearted and agreed to let the giant stay with them.

At first, it was a funny sight to see the giant in their small house. He was so big that he had to bend down to fit through the doorways! But the family didn’t mind, and they all lived happily ever after. The giant was no longer lonely, and he had a new family to love and care for. And the family was grateful to have such a gentle giant to protect them.
