Kind boy gives up his dream shoes to buy boots for his poor classmate then he was rewarded


On the school bus that took David home, he sat in a window seat all the time.

He would, as usual, open the window wide and let the afternoon breeze stroke his face as he thought back on the game he had played that day one moment at a time.

“What you did today on the field was amazing!” He had said, one of his classmates. “Guys, I believe we have a player on a national level with us.

Grab autographs while you still can! David was thrown at by another player, who patted him on the back almost too hard. His greatest aspiration was to play for his nation and achieve the status of a great soccer player.

As he and his team held up the golden championship trophy and smiled while taking pictures, David could almost taste the sweet air of pride and victory.

David practiced what he would say to the media following the game and to the cameras. How he rose from his petty beginnings and how much he owed his mother for everything.

“Sorry, can I sit here?” David didn’t notice that one of his classmates had asked to sit next to him because he was so lost in his thoughts.

The young man took a seat next to David, opened his backpack, and began to tell David about his dream. I want to be the school’s best football player. similar to David.

It’s unbelievable that I’m sitting next to him! The youngster never missed an opportunity to watch David play because he was a huge David fan.

David, in his mind, was everything he had ever wanted to be. He wanted to play like David, have a lot of friends like him, and even wear David’s expensive soccer shoes.

The boy thought as he hid his feet under the seat, “These worn-out old shoes should do the trick… for the time being.” Guillermo had always been introverted and had trouble making friends.

The boy finally gained the confidence to speak with his hero one day. Hello, David! Guillermo is my surname. I love you the most!”

“Oh? Dear Guillermo, Thanks.” David began to daydream once more, resulting in an awkward silence. “I… love your shoes a lot!” mumbled to Guillermo. His initial thought was of that.

“These? The soles are already beginning to peel off because they are extremely old. David’s eyes lit up as he thought about the dream pair of shoes he had saved for.

“You should see the new shoes I’m getting…” “Explain more about them!” Guillermo, folding his feet under the seat slowly, said. David would not want to see how filthy and unkempt his own shoes were.

“Well, they’re just right! They are neon orange, and their traction is unmatched….” David had been saving money for seven months to purchase the shoes he desired.

The 12-year-old wanted to buy something for himself for the first time. He also wanted to do it without making his mother feel weighed down.

Because he is aware of how hard his mother works to support him and his two younger sisters.

“Mom, you don’t have to give anything. You need to save money to throw a party for Tracy and Katie’s upcoming birthdays, remember?” David had enough money saved up.

Additionally, he accomplished this with the lemonade sale he held during his most recent vacation and a small newspaper delivery each morning.

That is, that is until he finally had enough money in his piggy bank to buy the shoes of his dreams. He couldn’t stop talking about it with Guillermo that day on the bus ride home from school.

“Guillermo! I succeeded! I’m going to buy the best shoes in town right after I finish my homework tonight. In point of fact, I’ll pick you up, and you can go to the store with me.

It’s going to be the absolute best feeling ever!” Guillermo was truly excited for his idol. When the bus abruptly struck a pothole at that point, one of Guillermo’s shoes fell to the floor of the bus.

When David saw the worn black shoe, he was surprised. Summer shoes that were thin and of low quality were the item. The canvas was separating from the sole, there were holes in it, and there were no laces.

Guillermo was embarrassed, so he took off the other shoe. David looked at his friend while hiding his face in his palms and sobbing softly but uncontrollably.

He had tears in his eyes. Throughout the remainder of the ride, the two boys did not know what to say to one another. “Get ready for five!”

David finally told Guillermo about their plan to go to the store that evening. David couldn’t possibly go to the store by himself. Not after seeing what was there.

David, oh! Are you here to purchase brand-new soccer shoes? The owner of the store stated, “I have them packed and ready right here.”

Continue, sir. Could you please demonstrate a pair of these shoes in a smaller size? David said while pointing to a pair of warm boots.

Mr. Manning, the store owner, is perplexed. “However, David, the ones I packed are exactly your size.” David responded, “Not for me, but for my friend here.”

What Guillermo had heard was unbelievable. David could not do that for him. David gently blinked and squeezed Guillermo’s hand, “No, David, I don’t need…” to calm him down.

Guillermo, I’ll take care of it. I’m always called your hero by you. I’ll do my best to be one for you. When Mr. Manning heard the boys talking, he was moved. He was clear on what he needed to do.

“Woah, my friend, this one looks great on you. And it’s the best we’ve got here at this store.” David was pleased with the boots he had purchased for his friend in the end.

Guillermo’s shame had given way to overwhelming gratitude, pure joy, and a sense of shamelessness in the face of this unexpected gift.

Mr. Manning gave a signal to his staff as the boys rode their bikes out of the store. “Look, we need to do something right now…” “David!

Someone is waiting for you at the door! In fact, he entered with a truck. David’s mother was also unable to comprehend the situation.

David rushed to the door and saw someone he recognized. The proprietor of the shoe store was Mr. Manning. “What brought you here?” The boy inquired.

David, I overheard you talking to a friend at the store. The man responded, “I know what you did.” “I saw you selling lemonade and delivering newspapers, so I know how badly you wanted those spiked shoes.

And today, I witnessed you give up all of those desires in order to assist a friend who was in greater need than you were.

David looked out of the corner of his eye at his mother’s proud expression as he lowered his head in shyness. In addition, in this day and age, I believe that acts of kindness and friendship ought to be rewarded.

So proceed! You are free to load up as many pairs of shoes as you like into the back of that truck. Don’t worry about the money; it’s mine for you, your mother, and your sisters.

David hesitated while seeking approval from his mother. He raced to the truck as soon as she said so, his eyes sparkling with excitement.

We still need to go to your friend’s house, so hurry up. Additionally, there are no-cost shoes for him or his family!
