That of Purim morning.

Normally we don't want to be "cheap" and do the bare minimum of 9 verses, so every other reading has 10 or more; but the subject matter for Purim morning (Amalek's attack, Exodus 17:8-16) is so tightly, neatly self-contained in those 9 verses that it really didn't make sense to "bleed" into a different subject by adding a few more verses.
