Ekaete's Sad Experience

Ekaete is a very good girl. She helps her mother to cook every day. After cooking, she serves her father and younger ones. She later washes the dishes and cleans up the kitchen. Her mother is very proud of her.

At her school, her teacher Mr. Ekpenyong loves her for her hard work and honesty. She always writes her notes and does her homework. Her classmates also love her. She is gentle and humble. She shares everything she has with her friends.

One day Ekaete arrived late at home because of a traffic jam. She quickly rushed to the kitchen to prepare the family's supper. After some time, the kerosene in her stove suddenly finished. In her haste to cook for her family on time, she did not turn off the stove before she poured kerosene into its little tank. This caused the stove to burst into flames and burn her.

The last thing she remembered, when she woke up later in the hospital, was a sound like a gun before she fainted. The doctor treated her for the burns she had.

Later, the doctor called Ekaete to his office. He told her that she made a serious mistake by not turning off the stove before she poured Kerosene into it.
