The apple

Louis is an 8-year-old boy who hates going to the doctors. Unluckily for him, he recently broke his arm while playing in the school playground. Which means he has had to go to the doctor quite frequently.

One lunch break he was sitting with his friend on a bench eating his lunch and he turned to him and said: “Oh Will, I wish there was a way to make this doctor go away.” Will looked back at him and said intriguingly: “There is one way.” Louis excitingly asked him: “What is it?” Will picked up the apple in his lunchbox and said: “Here take this apple. It should solve your problem.” Louis took the fruit and with a puzzled look asked: “How?” Will replied: “Haven’t you heard the saying ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away’ ” They both started laughing hysterically.

When they both stopped the bell rang. Louis thanked Will for his help and headed back to class.
