Krik? Krak! Vwala se te yon fwa!

Vwala se te yon fwa yon tigason ki rele Traka Pongongon deside kreye istwa tout kote li t-ap kouri. Toutbon se konsa manman-l ak papa-l te rele-l. Traka Pongongon viv daprè non-l. Li pa-t bay moun okenn desepsyon paske li te konn kreye tout kalite traka ak tèt chaje pou moun nan kanton kote li t-ap viv ak fanmi li. Tout abitan nan kanton an te konnen li trè byen. Traka Pongongon te toujou ap chèche opòtunite pou-l kreye briganday. Fè dezòd fè kè-l kontan anpil. Men paske paran li te bon moun, abitan vilaj Bèlvil yo pa pote plent ba yo. Paran Traka Pongongon te moun debyen, tout moun te respekte yo nan kanton an. Mesye TimTim ak Madan Bwasèch panse yo te elve pititgason yo a byen. Yo pa konnen sa-k rive-l oswa ki sa ki fè-l chanje konsa. Yo te gen bon kalite panse sou jan pou elve timoun yo. Aprètou, Bèlvil se te yon ti kanton kote tout granmoun elve tout timoun.

Lè Traka Pongongon te gen douzan, li vin yon bon jwè foutbòl. Tout moun Bèvil mennen pitit yo vin gade match li yo. Li rapid sou tèren an. Li pase boul la byen. Paske Traka te toujou ap kouri toupatou, li te nan bòn kondisyon fizik. Li renmen patisipe nan klas edukasyon fizik li. Li te toujou fè devwa-l. Traka resevwa bòn nòt nan egzamen matematik ak syans. Mèt oubyen pwofesè li yo di ke li te yon bon jan elèv tou.

Traka Pongongon te renmen fabrike istwa. Anpil moun kòmanse kwè yo paske li te toujou ap kouri nan tout kwen lokalite yo. Li te wè tout sa ki t-ap pase nan lòt zòn yo. Paske li te yon bon atlèt, tout moun ba li pwoteksyon. Epi yo te konnen papa-l ak manman-l tou! Men sa pa-t anpeche-l lage tout bèt li rankontre sou wout li.......

However, because Traka’s parents were good standing residents of the town, the residents did not complain to them that much. Everyone respected Traka Pongongon’s parents because they were nice people. Mr. Tim Tim and Mrs. BwaSèch thought they had raised their son well.
