The Apologetic Pigeon (HSK 4)

Once upon a time, there was a very polite pigeon. It was extremely shy and always had a apologetic expression. No matter what happened, it would always say, “Sorry!” One day, the pigeon flew into a field of flowers. It was amazed by their beauty but still said, “Sorry! I shouldn’t disturb you.” Then, the pigeon saw a little girl crying. It immediately flew over and asked, “What happened? Sorry to disturb you!” The girl shook her head and said, “I’m lost.” The pigeon felt sorry for her, so it flew the girl back to her home. The girl’s mother thanked it and said, “Thank you for helping my daughter get home. That’s wonderful!” The pigeon shyly said, “Sorry, I just did what I could.” From that day on, the pigeon had more and more things to do. It always helped people in need and then said, “Sorry!” People laughed and said, “This pigeon is so polite!” The pigeon flew happily, thinking to itself, “Sorry, I’m really awesome!”
