At school we have little buddies and with our little buddies we did a little project. We made fairy doors! We molded them, decorated them, and painted them! When we were all finished we put our fairy doors out in the woods for little fairy’s to live in. To go with our fairy doors each of the grade sevens had to write a short story about their door. Our little buddies decided what lived behind our doors there were trolls, elves, pixies, gnomes, and of course fairy’s!
This is my story:
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Emma. She was beautiful, only 13 but she was a very caring girl. She had hair black as the night sky and eyes as bright as the stars. She lived in a beautiful cottage down by a big river. Her cottage was small, it had a grass roof with white walls and beautiful plants and trees surrounding her. The cottage was in the middle of the forest but that did not bother Emma she loved nature, but what did bother her was that she was all alone and had no one to keep her company.
One day when Emma was out walking she saw something little zoom by, it wasn’t a butterfly but it had wings, Emma was confused so she decided to follow it. It led her to a dark cave deep in the forest which Emma had never seen before, she followed cautiously and was starting to get scared. The cave was dark and dreary and reeked of old socks, the air tasted thick and stale. Emma couldn’t see the little creature she was following anymore and it was just getting darker and the air was getting thicker so she decided to turn around.
Emma walked right into a big, hairy, smelly troll! She screamed as loud as she could and the troll did the same… he hid behind a rock and peered out at Emma. Emma was confused “wait, why are you afraid of me? You’re so big and strong and I’m just little” said Emma. “Wh-Who are you?” asked the troll timedly. “I’m Emma, I live here in the forest, who are you?” asked Emma. “I’m, um-I’m Rupert” “do you live in this cave?” asked Emma. “no” said Rupert. “I’m lost, I was following an evil fairy and she led me here, now I don’t know how to get out of this cave” said Rupert. “follow me” said Emma, “I think I know a way out”.
So Rupert followed Emma and they walked for hours until they came across a three way path, they didn’t know which way to go. Suddenly the middle path started glowing, it looked like little lanterns floating on the wind illuminating the path. Emma and Rupert decided to follow the lanterns down the before dark and gloomy appearing path. It led them into a beautiful tiny fairy village. On a big tree in the middle of the village was a little door. Expertly carved into the door were fine golden details that sparkled when the moon shined at just the right angle. On the door hung a big golden handle used to knock on the beautiful door.
Emma grabbed the big handle and knocked on the door very carefully trying not to startle whoever may be inside. With a loud creak the door opened and slowly revealed a fairy dressed in black robes with a violet dress and eyes so dark they looked like a black hole. Her wings were ragged, black with a slight sparkley tinge to them.
Rupert gasped “that’s her, the evil fairy that lead me into the dark cave”. Before Emma could say anything the dark fairy zapped a cage on top of Emma and Rupert with one wave of her hand. Then with one wicked laugh she walked back inside and slammed the door. “Don’t panic, I’m small enough to fit through the bars” said Emma. She slipped through the bars and cut the rope attached to the weight holding the cage down. Rupert cheered “we’re free” “shhh” said Emma “we can’t let the evil fairy hear us.” Rupert and Emma quietly followed the lanterns back out of the village and to a large clearing where they found Emma quaint little cottage, they quickly ran inside and they were both glad to be back in a safe place.
In Emma’s journey she met an unlikely friend, and now she will never be lonely again.
