1369 words - 5 pages

Old Mr.and Mrs.Hak-Tak, lived in a little hut on the side of a mountain in China. They had a couple of fields in which they grew rice, and a plot at the back of the house where they grew vegetables. Apart from a few old pieces of furniture and some threadbare clothes, that was all they had.If ever they had too much produce, which wasn't often, they would sell it at the market in the village down in the valley, and buy a few things which they couldn't make or grow themselves, like tools or cloth for clothes.One day, Mr.Hak-Tak was working in the rice paddy when he saw something sticking out of the mud. It was the edge of a huge pot. He couldn't understand how it had got there because he was sure it hadn't been there yesterday. He pulled and tugged and pushed and shoved until he got the pot onto dry land. It was too heavy for him to carry, so he rolled it down the hill and, after wiping away the mud, dragged it into the house."What have you got there?" asked Mrs.Hak-Tak."It's a pot. The biggest pot I've ever seen. It was in the rice paddy, and I don't know where it came from"."Let me look" said Mrs.Hak-Tak. She leaned over the edge of the pot to look inside, and the comb fell out of her hair and clanged on the bottom of the pot."Oh, the comb fell out of my hair!" They pulled the pot over on its side and she reached in to get her comb back. When she stood up again she looked puzzled. "Look" she said. "There are two combs! Mine and another exactly like it! The second comb must have been in there when you found the pot"."No it wasn't, I'm certain it was empty!""It couldn't have been. I've only got one comb, so where did the other come from?"Mr.Hak-Tak looked into the pot, and then dropped his knife into it. Pulling the pot on its side again, he took out two knives!"It's a magic pot" he said, wonderingly. "Put that bag of lentils into it"His wife dropped in the bag of lentils and, sure enough, they took out two bags."Let's try the purse, with all our money in it""What if it stops working, or swallows up the purse?""It won't, I'm sure. Just try"A moment later, they had two purses, absolutely identical, each with the same amount of money in them.They dropped both purses into the pot, and then had four. After the floor was covered in purses, they had the idea of putting in just the money, and soon had a great heap of coins on the table.They were very excited, and danced around and sang and shouted until Mrs.Hak-Tak suggested that they mustn't make too much noise, in case someone should come and steal their pot.After they calmed down they went to bed and both lay awake for a long time thinking of all the things they could do with their magic pot.They looked up at the hole in the roof, under which they had a bucket to catch the water when it rained. They looked at the broken glass in the window and the big brown damp patch on the wall. They thought about the coming winter and how they would need extra clothes, and the leaking water barrel, and the broken...
