NARRATOR: A long time ago there was a woodcutter who had only one son. One day he said.



FATHER: I have decided to use all my savings to give you a good education, so that you can have a decent and honest job which will help us survive when I can no longer work.



BOY: Thank you father. I will study hard and you will be proud of me.



FATHER: You will leave next week.



NARRATOR: The young boy went to the university where he spent there three years. One day the boy received a letter from his father.



BOY:  My father doesn`t have any money and I can`t stay here anymore. I have to go back.



NARRATOR: When he arrived home his father said.



FATHER: I don`t know what are we going to do. With the money I earned cutting wood, we can hardly survive.



BOY: Don`t worry father, I will go with you to the forest and I will help you.



FATHER: It`s hard work, and you`re not used to it. Besides, we only have one ax and we don`t have money to buy another one.



BOY: Why don`t you ask our neighbor to lend you his ax?.



FATHER: That`s a good idea, and we will buy another one when we have enough money.



NARRATOR: Next day, their neighbor lent them an ax, and so they went to the forest to work. After lunch, the boy said.



BOY: I will take a short walk father. I`ll be back soon.



FATHER: Don`t take too long, we still have a lot of work to do.



BOY: I won`t.



NARRATOR: When he was in the deep woods, he saw an enormous oak tree. Then he heard a voice calling him.



SPIRIT: Help!.  Help!.  Let me out of here!.  I want to go out!.



NARRATOR: As the boy was walking, he saw a bottle in the ground with a little creature inside. Carefully, he picked up the bottle.



BOY: What a strange little bottle,  and the voice is coming from inside.



SPIRIT: Let me out!. Let me out!.



BOY: I will open it!.



NARRATOR: As soon as the boy opened the bottle, the little creature started to grow, and grow, and grow, until it became a huge giant.



SPIRIT: Prepare yourself!. I`m going to eat you!.  I have been here for a long time, and I am very hungry!.



BOY: Wait, wait, before you do, I have to be sure that it was you who was inside the bottle; then you can eat me.



SPIRIT: But it was me!.  You saw me!.



BOY: Prove it!.






BOY: Get smaller again!.



SPIRIT: Very well, then I will eat you!.



NARRATOR: Then the giant got smaller, and smaller, and smaller, and the boy closed the bottle again.



SPIRIT: Let me out!. If you do, I will do whatever you want me to do. Let me out!. I will make you rich!. I`m telling you the truth!. Let me out of here!.



BOY: You have to promise that you will not eat me!.



SPIRIT: I promise.



NARRATOR: The boy opened the bottle, and the little creature started to grow, until it became a huge giant once again.



SPIRIT: Thank you!.



BOY: How can you help me?.



SPIRIT: Take this handkerchief. When you suffer an injury, cover it with the handkerchief, and it will heal instantly. And when you cover a metal object with it, the metal will turn into silver.



BOY: Go now, you are free!.



NARRATOR: As soon as the giant left, the boy returned to where his father was.



FATHER: Where have you been?. It`s getting dark and we haven`t finished.



BOY: Don`t worry father. I`ll do all the work.



NARRATOR: The boy took the ax and cleaned it with the handkerchief, and suddenly the ax turned into silver, and broke.



FATHER: You broke the ax!. Now we have to pay for it, and we don´t have any money!.



NARRATOR: The boy took the broken ax and saw that it had turned into silver.



BOY: Don`t worry father, I have something to tell you.


FATHER: What is it?.



BOY: Look at it father, this is not an ordinary ax.



FATHER: What do you mean?. What`s this?.



BOY: It`s silver.



NARRATOR: Then the boy told his father about the giant.



BOY: We have to sell it, father.



FATHER: Let`s go to town right away!.



NARRATOR: They sold the ax almost immediately, and bought a new one for their neighbor.



FATHER: Let`s go give him this new ax.



BOY: And with all this money I can go back to the university, where I will become a doctor.



FATHER: What about the handkerchief?.



BOY: With this handherchief I will heal all my patients.



FATHER: I am proud of you!.
