Hello, my name is Charlie. Let me introduce myself to you. I am an 11-year-old boy. I like to play cricket and I love adventures. I am going to tell you something VERY strange that had happened to me last week. This was only an introduction, NOW the real story must begin…
I was taking an afternoon walk when only just saw something glowing beautifully. I muttered to myself, ‘ I must be seeing things,’ so I walked on. I only started walking for a few seconds until I heard a tiny whisper. ‘ You aren’t seeing things, Charlie,’. First of all, I was freaked out because it was a fairy, and second of all, how did this fairy know my name?
I didn’t want to sound rude, so I eventually asked, ‘ How do you know my name, and who are you? She replied with a kind smile on her face, ‘ I am a young fairy. I have lived in this forest all my life’. I then heard her whistle a sort of tune. Slowly but surely, mythical creatures started to appear one by one. There were unicorns, alicorns, phoenixes, firebirds and much more. There were so many I couldn’t count them all.
The fairy told me that this forest wasn’t an ordinary forest, but an enchanted one! She let me stroke the unicorns, take a ride on the alicorns, she also let me take some feathers from the beautiful, fiery red phoenix.
I was having so much fun with the fairy, that I didn’t realize it was getting darker, but thankfully the fairy reminded me. I said, ‘ Thanks for everything today.’. When I was about to leave, the fairy suddenly urged me to stop. ‘ Please do not tell anyone about me or the creatures. They will come to this
forest and try to hunt me and the creatures.’ she said. ‘ OK.’ I replied. ‘ Charlie, did you know that you have some magic in your blood?’ she asked me. ‘ No. How? I replied. ‘It’s simple. If you did not have magic in your blood, you wouldn’t be able to see me or any of the creatures.’ She replied. ‘ Also what should I call you? I asked. ‘ Lily. Call me Lily. That’s my name.’ she replied.We both said goodbye. I headed back home, and Lily went back to her tree.
From now on, I always go and visit Lily in my free time and we have become very good friends ever since the day we met. The End. Well, that was my story. I am happy I have read this story to you, and I hope you have enjoyed listening to this story. Goodbye for now!
