The Three Little Pigs

A long time ago, there lived three little pigs with their mother.They lived in a small house. The mother thought their kids were grown-up and it was time for them to live in their own houses.“You cannot live here any longer. You grow bigger and bigger everyday. You all must find a place to live,“ said the mother.

“How?“ asked the first Pig.
“You must ask humans to help you,“ replied the mother.
Those three little Pigs then started their journey. They separated and promised to visit one another.
The first Pig met a man who brought lots of straws. The Pig said, “Excuse me, Sir. Would you mind giving me some of your straws? I'd like to build a house.“
“Here you go,“ the man kindly gave the pig his straws.

The Pig immediately built his house. It was not strong however it was enough to protect him from the sun.

Meanwhile, the second Pig met a man who brought some sticks. The Pig said, “Excuse me, Sir. May I have some of your sticks? I want to build a house.“
The man gave him his sticks. The Pig happily received and later built his house. The house was not strong but it was enough for him to sleep.

How about the third Pig? Well, he also met a man. The man brought some bricks. The Pig politely asked the man, “Excuse me, Sir. Would it be possible if I have some of your bricks? I want to build a house. “Fortunately the man was willing to help. He gave the Pig some of his bricks. The Pig soon built his house. The house was strong and comfortable.
It was a hot day. A wolf was hungry. He had not been eating for days. While he was looking for a prey, he saw the first Pig's house. The Wolf knew the Pig was inside of the house, he could smell the Pig.

The Wolf said, “May I come in?“ The Pig was so scared. He said, “No way!“ “If you don't let me come in, I will huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house down,“ said the Wolf.
Then the Wolf huffed, and he puffed, and he blew the house down. The Pig ran as fast as he could to his brother's house.

He soon arrived in the second Pig's house that was made of sticks. Unfortunately, the Wolf followed him. Again, he asked, “May I come in?“ FOLKLORE FROM ENGLAND The Pigs replied, “No way!“ The Wolf screamed, “If you don't let me come in, I will huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house down.“

Then the Wolf huffed, and he puffed, and he blew the house down.Both Pigs ran as fast as they could to their brother's house.
They arrived at the brother's house that was made of bricks.They immediately told him about the Wolf.

“Don't worry, he cannot blow down this house. It is made of bricks and it is very strong. But we must set a plan now,“ said the third Pig.

He whispered and his brothers agreed with his plan.
Later, the Wolf came. He knew he could not blow the house down. So he entered the house through the chimney. The Wolf climbed the house and carefully entered the chimney.

The Wolf did not know that the Pigs had prepared a pot with boiling water. It was dark and the Wolf could not see the pot. He landed on the pot and screamed loudly! “Ouch! It hurts!“ screamed the Wolf. He immediately left the house and never came back.

The Pigs were extremely happy. Since then they lived happily ever after. Source Media Indonesia, 12/14/2014, page 20
