This story is about a woman from Taiwan. She is 48 years old, and she cannot hear well. She must use a hearing aid.

She puts the hearing aid on a table. There is some fruit on the table, too. A larva lives in the fruit. It gets out of the fruit. It gets on the hearing aid.

The woman takes the hearing aid. She puts it in her ear. The larva gets in her ear. The woman’s ear is in pain. She goes to hospital. Doctors see the larva. They put the larva away. The woman is fine now.

Difficult words: hearing aid (small thing which help people to hear better), larva (baby fly), pain (very bad feeling).
