Could you help me translate this instruction: “Read this story out loud, please. When you’re done you can keep it.” (I’m stuck on how to specify “out loud” as opposed to silently and on “keep it.”)

Haitians say a hot vwa or byen fò for out loud or aloud
to keep (in this instance) may be translated as kenbe or pran.

"Read this story out loud, please. When you’re done you can keep it.”  - Tanpri, li istwa sa a a hot vwa. Lè nou fini, nou mèt kenbe li.
