Ali heard a familiar ringing tone. Oh yes! It was the tone of the ice-cream seller. Everyday a man named Fahad came in the alley and sold ice-cream. The special thing about it was that it was home-made. Fahad made ice-cream from milk, dry fruits, and different flavours of fruits. All the children liked his ice-creams very much. When he rang his bell, all the children ran towards him. He was a very honest person and sold his ice-cream to pay for his education.
As Ali heard the ringing bell, he ran towards the door, although he was suffering from a bad cough. In the meantime, his mother came and stopped him. He felt sad. His mother knew that the ice-cream was suitable, but she did not want Ali to eat due to the cough.
Fahad came to know that Ali was sick. He smiled to himself as he got an idea. When he went back to his house, he boiled some milk and mixed it with dry fruits and chocolate. He poured the milk in a glass and took it to Ali’s house. Ali’s mother thought that Fahad was here to give Ali ice-cream, but when she saw the hot milk she permitted Ali to give it a try. When Ali took a sip, he was amazed by the delicious taste. Mother also tried it and found it amazing.
Now Fahad has hot milk with different flavours along with the ice-cream on his cart for sale.
All the children are happy because if they have a cough or cold they can enjoy the taste of ice-cream in the form of hot milk.
