Winter is far away...

In a field one summer’s day a grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its heart's content.  A group of ants walked by, grunting as they struggled to carry plump kernels of corn.
“Where are you going with those heavy things?” asked the grasshopper.
Without stopping, the first ant replied, “To our ant hill.  This is the third kernel I've delivered today.”
“Why not come and sing with me,” teased the grasshopper, “instead of working so hard?” 
“We are helping to store food for the winter,” said the ant, “and think you should do the same.” 
“Winter is far away and it is a glorious day to play,” sang the grasshopper.
But the ants went on their way and continued their hard work.
The weather soon turned cold.  All the food lying in the field was covered with a thick white blanket of snow that even the grasshopper could not dig through.  Soon the grasshopper found itself dying of hunger.
He staggered to the ants' hill and saw them handing out corn from the stores they had collected in the summer. He begged them for something to eat.

(Buraya kadarı bildiğiniz hikâye. Bundan sonrasını ben uydurdum. Kardeşimin ödevi vardı, yardım istedi haliyle, ben de "yardımcı oldum".)

“Oh dear,” said one of the ants in a charitable voice, “we know you haven’t been able to store anything away for the winter. Don’t worry, here we have so much food for us and you. Yes, it’s true that you have spent all of your time in the last summer, but it’s not a problem. We are your friends, and friends should always help each other, aren’t they? 
“Yes, of course!” replied the grasshopper, we are good friends and will always help each other. So, now you give me some food, and I will play music and sing songs for you.”

The ants invited the grasshopper inside, and he accepted this invitation. That night all the ants and the grasshopper ate a delicious meal, then sang songs, danced and late night slept. 

(İyi etmişler bence.)
