Billy is twelve years old. One day his father gave him fifty pence. There is a big tree in Billy’s garden. He climbed it and sat in it. He likes that place in the tree very much.
Then Billy looked at his money and said, “I’m going to go to the market tomorrow, and I’m going to buy some seeds with this money. Then I’m going to plant them under this tree. I’m going to have a lot of flowers and fruit and plants, and I’m going to sell them. A lot of people are going to come to my garden every day, and they’re going to buy my nice flowers and fruit and plants, and in the end I’m really going to have a lot of money. Then I’m going to grow up and go to university, and I’m going to be a doctor.
