                                Stone Breaker

A little bird told the soldiers that a new strict officer would come. At that day, he made a speech to all the soldiers. He was so strict so disobeying flew off him like water off a duck’s back. He had never seen them before, so he began: “ My name is Stone, and I’m even harder than stone, so do what I tell you or there’ll be trouble. Don’t try any tricks with me, and then we’ll get on well together.”
Then he went to each soldier on after the other and asked him his name. “ Speak loudly so that everyone can hear you clearly,” he said. The soldiers proved themselves chicken-hearted and dare not make a single move when the officer came to him.
Each soldier told him his name, until he came to the last one. Although he tried to be calm, his expression let the cat out of the bag. He had butterflies in his stomach so he could not speak a word. And so Captain Stone shouted at him, “When I ask you a question, answer it! I’ll ask you again: what’s you name, soldier?” The soldier was very unhappy, but at last he replied. “My name’s Stonebreaker, sir,” he said nervously.

2. What’s the last soldier’s name?
3. Why didn’t the last soldier answer the officer’s name?
