Contoh Narrative Text Bahasa Inggris
1. Contoh Narrative Text Personal Experience
|Title||Mashed Potato Pizza|
|Orientation||My grandma always tells me that people who laugh at their own mistakes will get everyone else to laugh along with them. Yesterday, I learned that she is right.|
|Complication||“Stay in line,” Mrs. Ani said. I knew right away that my friend Maulana wouldn’t be able to cut. I looked at Maulana and frowned. Soon, the line began to move faster, and I followed along hoping that there would still be pizza.
When I reached the counter, I looked at the choices. I could only see chicken and mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and fish. I could hear the rumbling of my very disappointed stomach.
Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw one last piece of pepperoni pizza. I got so excited.
“Pepperoni pizza,” I said politely. Mrs. Ani handed me the pizza. I took the paper plate so quickly that the pizza slid off the plate. I tried to save it, but the pizza landed in the pan of hot, buttery mashed potato.
I could feel my face turning redder and redder. All that I could hear was laughter from the kids in line.
As I looked at the upside-down pizza, I heard Mrs. Ani’s voice, “Rahma, would you like a side of mashed potatoes with your pizza?”
I looked up and saw Maulana. He was laughing too. With a nervous smile, I said “Of course.”
Mrs. Ani smiled and scooped the mashed potato pizza on my plate. I looked around at my friends, and we all laughed again.
|Resolution||I never really believed grandma until I saw my friends laughing at me. The laughing made me feel good instead of just clumsy.|
2. Contoh Narrative Text Fairy Tale
|Orientation||Once upon a time there lived a little girl named Snow White. She lived with her aunt and uncle because her parents were dead.|
|Complication||One day she heard her uncle and aunt talking about leaving Snow White in the castle because they both wanted to go to America and they didn’t have enough money to take Snow White with them.
Snow White didn’t want her uncle and aunt to do that so she decided that it would be best if she ran away. The next morning she ran away into the woods.
She was very tired and hungry. Then she saw a little cottage. She knocked but no one answered so she went inside and fell asleep. Meanwhile, the seven dwarfs were coming home from work.
|Resolution||There they found Snow White sleeping. Then Snow White woke up. She saw the dwarfs. The dwarfs said, “What is your name?” Snow White said, “My name is Snow White.” Then, Snow White told the dwarfs the whole story. The dwarfs said, “If you want, you may live here with us.” Snow White answered, “Oh, could I? Thank you.” Finally, Snow White and the seven dwarfs lived happily ever after.|
3. Contoh Narrative Text Fable
|Title||Three Little Pigs|
|Orientation||Once upon a time, there were three little pigs. The time came for them to seek their fortunes and build their house. The first little pig built his house of straw while the middle brother decided to build a house of sticks.|
|Complication||They were done with building their houses very quickly and without much hard work. The third pig, the oldest, decided to build a house of bricks.
He did not mind doing some hard work because he wanted a strong house. He knew that in the woods nearby, there was a wolf.
The wolf liked to catche little pigs and eat them up. When the three houses were finished, they sang and danced happily the whole day. After enjoying a lot, a big bad wolf popped up from the woods.
The little pig got scared and quickly hid in his house made of straws. The big bad wolf huffed and puffed and blew the house down in minutes. Seeing this the little pig ran to his middle brother’s house made of sticks.
The wolf now came to this house. The wolf huffed and puffed and blew the house down in hardly any time. Now, both the terrified pigs ran to their oldest brother’s house which was made of bricks.
The big bad wolf tried to huff and puff and blow the third house down, but he could not. He kept trying for hours but the house was very strong and all the three pigs were safe inside.
He tried to enter through the chimney but the third pig boiled a big pot of water and kept it below the chimney. The wolf fell into it and died.
|Resolution||Now, the two pigs felt sorry for being so lazy while building the houses. They also built their houses with bricks and all the three little pigs lived happily ever after.|
