The Silver Balance - World Primary

Para andar y andar nada mejor que las Converse

In a town of Spain whose name nobody remembers, a small fabric trade closed definitively and was abandoned by its owners. Time went by and nobody was interested in that place, so little by little he lost the luster of yesteryear. What had been a nice shop in its best days, became an old and dark low closed to lime and chant.

One day, children playing in the street realized that one of the windows above the old window were broken. They did not hesitate: they climbed on top of each other and managed to hoist themselves until they managed to sneak through the hole in the glass.

What a disappointment they took! The old shop was dirty and covered in dust. It smelled musty, spider webs were everywhere, and there were only a couple of chairs eaten by the moth and some ramshackle furniture that was no good at all.

They were leaving when one of the boys discovered that behind the old counter there was a very strange scale that had a mysterious ornament in the center. A second later, six curious little faces swirled about to look at it.

How wonderful! It was a silver balance, it was brand new and it glowed as if it had been shined with a rag that morning .

It seemed very beautiful, but they did not imagine that it was a magic scale. It was not to weigh food like the other scales of the world, but the good and bad deeds of all those who touched it.

Another of the friends who were there, whom everyone considered a bit selfish, envious and vague, wanted to try it too. He touched the ornament with his hand and the balance moved to the left, illuminating again. The flashes were so strong that all the children had to look away blinded by the light. But this time, from the plate of the balance, swords began to appear, as many times as he had behaved badly during his life.

All the boys of the gang went in order next to the balance to know it that this object, which seemed to be drawn from a fairy tale, had to tell them. Then, they fired from there to tell their parents the great discovery.

Of course, soon the voice spread and the silver balance became famous throughout the region. Each evening before dinner, dozens of children began to approach the old store to admire and touch. If he showed them stars, they knew that they had been generous, hardworking and loving with their parents, but if on the contrary the balance taught them swords, they understood that they should improve and make an effort to behave better. the passage of time also affected the balance and one day, from using it, it was ruined. All the children of the town wept in pure sadness.

What would they do now without their beloved silver balance?

The balance saw the tears of the children, last time, he spoke to them:

- Dear children, listen to me, please. For months I have shown you your good and bad behavior. My only intention was to make you reflect.

The wise scales stared at them and continued to speak with a delicate voice.

As soon as he said these words, the silver balance was extinguished forever. All the children said goodbye to her and then, very sorry, they left her there, where they had found her, as a sign of respect.

They did not see her again, but they never forgot her teachings and they carried it all their lives in their hearts.
