Jean and the Robbers
A Cajun Folktale, Part 2
Jean was looking for his mom. He saw a gang of robbers coming down the road.
Jean was scared. He tried to hide. He carried his door up a tree. But the robbers stood beneath the tree!
They sat down to count their money. One robber said to the others, "This money is for you."
"And, this money is for you."
"And the rest is for me," Jean cried.
"Who said that?" said a robber. He looked all around but did not see Jean in the tree.
Jean was so scared he began to shake. He shook so hard he dropped the door.
"The tree is throwing doors at us!" yelled one of the robbers. They were so scared that they ran away.
Jean climbed down and took his door home. His mom was home. She was very confused.
