Do You Believe in Love?

Salam. Since lately I've been reading some short stories, let me tell you some story, courtesy of my sister's e-mail


A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups. And set about nailing it to a post, he fell a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.

'Mister,' he said, 'I want to buy one of your puppies.'

'Well,' said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off from the back of his neck, 'These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.'

The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer.

'I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?'

'Sure,' said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle... 'Here, Dolly!' he called.

Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur.

The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight.

As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirred inside the doghouse.

Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller... Down the ramp it slid. Then, in a somewhat akward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up...

'I want that one,' the little boy said, pointing to the runt.

The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, 'Son, you don't want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would.'

With that, the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg, attaching itself to a specially made shoe.

Looking back at the farmer, he said 'You see sir, I don't run too well myself, and he will need someone who understands.'

With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup.

Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

'How much?' asked the little boy. 'No charge,' answered the farmer, 'There's no charge for love.'


Huh. There's no charge for love huh?

I need proof~

Rumah, rumah, rumah


  1. if love need to be charged; then it is materialistic love.

  2. It's worth a broken heart. Whatever.

  3. I guess so. Greek has four words to describe one English LOVE. One of them is AGAPE which is unconditional love like mother-child love. HATE just doesn't exist between mother-child. If it does, im sure there must be Love behind that Hate.

    to princess nur
    :) ur always such a smart person. thank you very much for that deep thought of urs :)

  5. of course love is real, its just not everything you see around you.
    Real love is that of the boy to the pup.
    Real love is that of a mother to her child.
    Real love is marriage that lasts a lifetime.

    NOT couple2, NOT cintan2, & certainly NOT sugardada love. lol! :p

  6. real love, of course la.
