Friendship - A Short Story

Horror gripped the heart of a World War-I soldier, as he saw his lifelong friend fall in battle.

The soldier asked his Lieutenant if he could go out to bring his fallen comrade back

"You can go," said the Lieutenant, "but don't think it will be worth it .

Your friend is probably dead and you may throw your life away."

The Lieutenant's words didn't matter, and the soldier went anyway.

Miraculously, he managed to reach his friend, hoisted him onto his shoulder and brought him back to their company's trench.

The officer checked the wounded soldier, then looked kindly at his friend.

" I told you it wouldn't be worth it," he said. "Your friend is dead and you are mortally wounded."

"It was worth it, Sir," said the soldier.

"What do you mean by worth it?" responded the Lieutenant." Your friend is dead."

"Yes Sir," the soldier answered, "but it was worth it because when I got to him, he was still alive and I had the satisfaction of hearing him say.......

" Man...I knew you would come ! "

hey thats so wonderful story... had got them through SMS.
there is another story,
One cold day a sparrow falls down due to severe cold, looking at the sparrow a cow puts dung on it.
some time later the sparrow feels warm sitting inside the dung,
later finds that dung stinks so the sparrow tries to shout so that someone finds pull the sparrow out of it.
After sometime a wild cat finds out pulls the sparrow out of the dung n eats the sparrow.

Never thing bad abt the person who pours dung on u.

Should keep ur mouth shut when u r in danger.

Never think that when a person picks u out of the dung is always good.

so how was the story.
