The Donkey in the Well: A Bedtime Storytime Adventure

Once upon a time, in a tranquil village nestled between rolling hills, there lived a donkey named Jack. His story is one that children and teens often requested for bedtime storytime.

Jack was not an ordinary donkey. He had a kind heart and a pair of large, expressive eyes that always seemed to be filled with curiosity. He was loved by the villagers for his gentle nature, and he played a vital role in their lives.

You see, Jack’s job was to help the villagers carry heavy loads from the fields to their homes. He would patiently plow the fields, his strong back bending under the weight of sacks filled with grains, and he never once complained. Jack was a hardworking and content donkey, and the villagers admired him greatly.

One bright morning, as the sun painted the sky with shades of orange and pink, a new task awaited Jack. The villagers were expanding their well to ensure they had enough water for their crops during the hot summer months. It was a challenging job, and they needed Jack’s strength to transport dirt and stones away from the excavation site.

With a heavy heart, the villagers watched as Jack descended into the deep, dark well, where they had tied a rope around his neck. They knew it was a risky job, but they also trusted Jack to do it safely. The villagers started shoveling the dirt into baskets, which Jack would then pull up.

As the hours passed, Jack worked diligently, pulling the rope and hauling the baskets of dirt and stones. He knew the importance of this task and was determined to do his best. But the well was deeper than anyone had anticipated, and the work seemed never-ending.

Fatigue began to weigh down on Jack, and with one particularly forceful tug, he lost his balance and tumbled into the well. The villagers gasped in horror as Jack’s braying echoed off the stone walls.

The well was deep, and there was no way for Jack to climb out on his own. The villagers peered into the darkness, feeling helpless. They couldn’t leave Jack trapped in the well, but they couldn’t risk their own lives by climbing down to help him either.

As evening descended and the sun dipped below the horizon, the villagers faced a difficult decision. They decided that the only humane option was to fill the well with dirt to end Jack’s suffering. Tears welled up in their eyes as they began to shovel dirt into the well, slowly covering the donkey.

Jack’s desperate brays grew fainter as the well filled, and eventually, there was silence. The villagers mourned the loss of their beloved friend, and their hearts ached with sadness. They had no choice but to continue their work, finishing the well to ensure their water supply.

That night, as the villagers gathered around the fire for bedtime storytime, their faces were heavy with sorrow. They couldn’t help but think of Jack and the sacrifices he had made for their community.

As they sat in silence, a soft sound began to fill the air. It was a gentle thud, like the beating of a distant drum. The villagers exchanged puzzled glances, wondering where the sound was coming from.

The thudding continued, growing louder and more persistent. The villagers followed the sound, which led them back to the well. To their astonishment, they discovered that the well was not completely filled with dirt after all. There was a mound of earth at the bottom, and on top of it stood Jack!

The villagers couldn’t believe their eyes. Jack was battered and covered in dirt, but he was alive! His determination to survive had pushed him to keep his legs moving, and he had climbed onto the mound of dirt as it filled the well.

The villagers quickly lowered a rope into the well and pulled Jack to safety. They embraced him with tears of joy and gratitude, realizing the depth of his courage and resilience.

From that day forward, Jack became a symbol of hope and determination in the village. His story of survival in the well was shared with children at bedtime storytime, reminding them that even in the darkest of times, one should never give up.
