Every day the boy goes to the tree, and plays on it. He swings from the branches and climb its trunk. One day, the boy doesn’t show up to play on the tree. The boy doesn’t come for a long time. Then the boy shows up one day and says he needs money to buy things. The tree tells him to sell the apples in the town. The boy doesn’t come back for long time. And then one day the boy comes, but he is much older. He wants to build a house and have a family. The tree tells the boy to cut down her branches to build a house. So the boy cuts off her branches and builds a house. The boy doesn’t come for a long time. Then one day he shows up, and he wants to build a boat and leave for a long time. Then he cuts her down and all that’s left is a trunk. So the boy is gone for a long time. Then he comes back one day and is very old. All he wants to do is sit on the trunk of that tree.
