There was a fight on the sea between England and France. Casabianca, a boy, was with his father in the French ship.
The father said, “My dear boy, stay here. Do not leave the place without my permission. I am going out to fight. I will return soon.”
The father left the place at once. He joined the fight to defeat England.
Suddenly the ship caught fire. The fire spread.
Casabianca shouted, “Father, May I leave this place? This place caught fire.”
But no answer came.
Again the boy shouted, “Father….May I leave this place.”
Again there was no reply. His father was dead in the fight.
The fire went closer and closer to Casabianca. It burnt him to death.
He obeyed his father in letter and spirit.
He was a brave boy.
