Kelingking

    A long time ago in Bangka Belitung lived a husband and a wife. They were poor and they did not have any children yet. Days and nights they prayed to God. They really wanted to have a child. “God, please give us a child, even though he is only as big as a little finger,” prayed the husband.

    Their dream came true! The wife was pregnant. However, they were surprised when they saw the baby. He was so small. He was as big as a little finger.

    “You prayed to God to give us a child, although he is as big as a little finger right? Be thankful to God. Let’s love him. How will you name him then?” asked the wife.

    “You are right. We have to be grateful. Well, I will name him Kelingking,” said the husband. Kelingking means little finger or pinkie.

    Time passed by and Kelingking did not grow much. His body was still physically small compared to other kids. Though he was so small, Kelingking ate like adults. He ate much food. And that made his parents really worried. They were poor and sometimes they could not eat because they had to give their food to Kelingking.

    “I cannot hold it anymore. I want to put Kelingking in the jungle. Let him live there. I think he can survive,” said the father.

    In the morning, Kelingking and his father went to the jungle. When they arrived, the father asked Kelingking to cut down a very big tree. When Kelingking was busy cutting down the tree, his father silently went home. The father thought that Kelingking could not cut down the big tree. The father was sure that Kelingking would be lost in the jungle. But he was wrong! In the morning Kelingking suddenly showed up in front of the house. And he brought the big tree also!

    “Father, where do you want me to put this big tree?” asked Kelingking.

    The father was surprised. He asked Kelingking to put the tree in the backyard. Kelingking then went inside the house. As always he ate all the food and that made his father got angry. He then had another idea.

    “Kelingking, let’s go to the mountain. I need a big stone from there.”

    Kelingking was an obedient kid. He followed his father to go to the mountain. When they arrived, his father pointed a big stone. The stone was as big as their house!

    “I want you to bring that big stone to our house,” asked the father.

    When Kelingking was trying to bring the stone, the father immediately ran home. At night, when the father was sleeping , suddenly he heard Kelingking’s voice.

    “Father, I’m home. Where do you want me to put this big stone?”

    This time Kelingking’s father realized his mistake. It was true that Kelingking’s body was small and he ate much food. But he was a nice kid and he had great power. With that power, they could get a job and had a lot of money. The father then apologized to Kelingking. Since then they always worked together.

Soal di atas menanyakan tentang apa isi cerita tersebut.

Berikut adalah makna dari cerita di atas dalam Bahasa Indonesia:

Kelingking

    Dahulu kala di Bangka Belitung hiduplah sepasang suami istri. Mereka miskin dan belum punya anak. Siang dan malam mereka berdoa kepada Tuhan. Mereka sangat ingin punya anak. “Tuhan tolong beri kami seorang anak, meskipun dia hanya sebesar jari kelingking,” pinta sang suami.

    Impian mereka menjadi kenyataan! Istrinya sedang hamil. Namun, mereka terkejut saat melihat bayi itu. Dia sangat kecil. Dia sebesar jari kelingking.

    “Kamu berdoa kepada Tuhan agar memberi kami seorang anak, meskipun dia sebesar jari kelingking kan? Bersyukurlah kepada Tuhan. Ayo cintai dia. Lalu bagaimana Anda akan menamainya? ” tanya sang istri.

    "Kamu benar. Kami harus berterima kasih. Nanti saya beri nama Kelingking,” kata sang suami. Kelingking artinya jari kelingking atau kelingking.

    Waktu berlalu dan Kelingking tidak berkembang banyak. Tubuhnya secara fisik masih kecil dibandingkan anak-anak lain. Meski kecil, Kelingking makan seperti orang dewasa. Dia makan banyak. Dan itu membuat orang tuanya sangat khawatir. Mereka miskin dan terkadang tidak bisa makan karena harus memberikan makanan kepada Kelingking.

    “Saya tidak bisa menahannya lagi. Saya ingin menempatkan Kelingking di hutan. Biarkan dia tinggal di sana. Saya pikir dia bisa bertahan,” kata sang ayah.

    Pagi harinya, Kelingking dan ayahnya pergi ke hutan. Ketika mereka tiba, sang ayah meminta Kelingking untuk menebang pohon yang sangat besar. Saat Kelingking sedang asyik menebang pohon, diam-diam ayahnya pulang ke rumah. Sang ayah mengira Kelingking tidak bisa menebang pohon besar itu. Sang ayah yakin Kelingking akan hilang di hutan. Tapi dia salah! Pagi harinya Kelingking tiba-tiba muncul di depan rumah. Dan dia juga membawa pohon besar itu!

    "Ayah, di mana Ayah ingin aku meletakkan pohon besar ini?" tanya Kelingking.

    Sang ayah terkejut. Dia meminta Kelingking untuk meletakkan pohon itu di halaman belakang. Kelingking lalu masuk ke dalam rumah. Seperti biasa dia makan semua makanan dan itu membuat ayahnya marah. Dia kemudian punya ide lain.

    "Kelingking, ayo pergi ke gunung. Saya butuh batu besar dari sana."

    Kelingking adalah anak yang penurut. Dia mengikuti ayahnya pergi ke gunung. Ketika mereka tiba, ayahnya menunjuk sebuah batu besar. Batu itu sebesar rumah mereka!

    “Aku ingin kamu membawa batu besar itu ke rumah kita,” tanya sang ayah.

    Saat Kelingking hendak membawa batu tersebut, sang ayah langsung lari pulang. Di malam hari, saat sang ayah sedang tidur, tiba-tiba terdengar suara Kelingking.

    "Ayah, aku sudah pulang. Di mana Anda ingin saya meletakkan batu besar ini? "

    Kali ini ayah Kelingking menyadari kesalahannya. Memang benar tubuh Kelingking kecil dan dia banyak makan. Tapi dia adalah anak yang baik dan dia memiliki kekuatan yang besar. Dengan kekuatan itu, mereka bisa mendapat pekerjaan dan punya uang banyak. Sang ayah kemudian meminta maaf kepada Kelingking. Sejak itu mereka selalu bekerja sama.
