Reading For UAN (3)

ReOnce upon a time, there lived in Japan a peasant and his wife. They were sad couple because they had no children. They kept praying to their god pleading to give a child.

While cutting wood by a stream one day, the man saw a large peach floating on the water. He ran to pick up. His wife was excited because she had never seen such a large peach before. They were about to cut the peach when they heard a voice from inside.



The couple were too surprised to do anything. The peach then cracked open, and there was a beautiful baby boy inside. The couple were very happy, of course. They named the baby Momotaro, which meant 'Peach boy'.

Momotaro grew up and told his parents that he was going to fight the pirates who always attacked their village. These pirates lived on an island a few kilometers away. Momotaro's mother packed his food, and his father gave him a sword. Having blessed Momotaro, they sent him off on his journey.
Sailing his boat, Momotaro met an eagle going in the same direction. They became good friends, soon, both of them arrived on the island of the Pirates.

Momotaro drew out the sacred sword his father had given him and began to fight the pirates. The eagle flew over the thieves' heads, pecking at their eyes. Finally, the pirates were defeated.
Momotaro brought home all the goods that pirates had stolen. His parents were proud of him, and they were overjoyed at his victory and safe return.
