The Smashed and Crashed Cart

A Roman aqueduct in Nerja, Spain.

Daniel was ecstatically excited when he constructed a cart with lumber. He had been working on the fantastically, fabulous, and fun cart, not by himself, but with his dad. Daniel’s mom, who thought her son would hurt himself with sharp tools, was worried. His father had planned to use the device for farming, and he was going to teach Daniel some carpentry. At the farm, the old one had been stolen by a greedy thief. The boy knew he had fashioned a stunning cart and he was proud.

Daniel didn’t use the wonderful machine for farming, but he slyly snuck it for his own amusement. Daniel had tried to explain to his dad that the cart, which was supposed to be used just for work, could also be used for play. Above the aqueducts, Daniel’s friends dared him to descend down, so he dashed toward the city. Although his father was busy, he had to stop to look for Daniel, and noticed he and the cart had vanished. His dad asked Daniel’s pals where he was and they told him he had flown on the steep waterway. Down below, Daniel felt guilty that he had disobeyed and wished he had kept the cool cart at the farm.

In the city square, Daniel powerfully crashed. His parents suspiciously rushed to the town square. They saw that their son was not injured. His mom knew she should not have let him build the cart. While everyone was relieved that Daniel wasn’t hurt, they were still irate. “I will promise, Mom and Dad, that I will listen to you in the future. I am sorry that I scared you,” explained the repentant boy. “I am glad that you’re fine, but you will still have a punishment,” they replied. Daniel was sad, although he understood the valuable lesson his parents were about to teach him. His mom, who sent the cart flying into pieces, destroyed and smashed it with hesitation but relief.
