A gentleman stopped his car at the door of a flower shop. He planned to order flowers and asked the shopkeeper to deliver
them to his mother, who was far away in his hometown.
The gentleman saw a little girl crying on the road before he entered the shop. The gentleman asked her: “Why are you crying?”
“I want to buy a rose for my mother, but I haven’t got enough money,” said the girl.
The gentleman took the girl’s hand and entered the flower shop. He first ordered the bouquet (花束) for his mother and bought a rose for the girl.
When he was walking out of the shop, the gentleman asked the girl if she would like a ride home.
“Will you really drive me home?” she asked.
“Of course,” the gentleman replied.
“Then drive me to my mother. But the place where my mother lives is very far.”
The gentleman drove along the mountain road and finally came to the cemetery (墓地).
The little girl put the flower onto a new grave (坟墓). In order to send a rose to her mother who had died a month before, she had gone on a very long journey.
The gentleman drove the girl to her home and then returned to the flower shop. He cancelled（取消）the bouquet and bought a big bunch (束) of fresh flowers instead. He drove directly to his mother’s home, a five-hour drive from here. He would send the flowers to his mother in person.
