Magical pot and wonderful flower.
Have you ever imagined yourself being at home alone? It seems to be an amazing thing! You can do everything you want to do... Isn't that wonderful? But soon become very bored and you feel sad and lonely. One day, I stayed at home alone. I watched TV, played computer games then I went on the yard... Nobody on the yard at that moment. I walked and walked around the yard, only the light wind and birds in the sky flied over the trees. I sat under the old tree and dreamt. For a moment I saw something interesting and amazing. You never believe me, I heard a strange voice behind me. Somebody said: " Look around. Look around". I stood up and looked around... Millennial Oak looked straight at me and said again:"Look around!
I didn't believe my eyes and ears, I couldn't believe myself. I have seen only a pot on the stone and some flowers near it. I pushed the pot and heard a strange voice again:" Are you here? Take me at home! Take me, please." I did not understand and asked: " Who are you and where are you? The voice answered: "If you take me at home, I'll help you. I'm a pot." "How strange, how a simple pot can help me?" - I thought. However, I took it with me and trudged back home. I put it
under stairs and forgot for a while. Some month passed... Once upon a time at midnight I heard something strange. I woke up, run downstairs and looked under the stairs. I was so surprised, such as I SAW SOMETHING UNFOGETABLE! Two big eyes looked at me from the pot. Then small, thin hand gave me a letter and some seeds.
The next day I did everything as it was written in the letter. A month passed... And I have had a beautiful flower. it was not an ordinary flower. It was a rainbow flower. It could make any wish. All you have to do is tear off a petal, throw it up in the air and say: "Fly, petal, oh –
East to West you go.
Then North to South
And turn about.
Touch the ground, do,
Make my wish come true."
Then you say what you wish is. And it will come true.
Long ago, when the world was ruled by kings with their queens, there was one strange sea. There were real legends about it, but nobody even couldn’t imagine that all stories were true. Above the indicated sea rules the sea king, the famous god Poseidon. He had a beautiful daughter, no one could compare with her beauty. The girl's name was the Little Mermaid. She was kind to all the inhabitants of the underwater kingdom. But for some reason no one wanted to take her, except for her best friend, the clown fish of Maurice, believed that the girl was not worthy of living in their kingdom. Yes. The Little Mermaid had one feature. Her body was human, only her legs were tail. The girl lived hard, she had few friends. Day after day, she did that she read books and played puzzles. But one day everything changed. Maurice, as usual, swam for the Little Mermaid, and they both went for a walk. There was a quiet night that did not bode ill. The sea is calm. Having reached the local forest (which consisted of impassable algae, and therefore the inhabitants called it prodigal), the friends saw a terrible picture: the wicked witch Marlene, who had long ago turned black with her hatred and anger towards the world around her, tormented a poor sea-slope called Ben. He was a watchman of the royal treasury. Therefore, Marlene wanted with the help of Ben to obtain the untold wealth that was stored in the treasury. Quietly swam to the sorceress and Ben, trembling with fear, the Mermaid and Maurice overheard their conversation. They immediately realized that Ben refused to help the sorceress, he remained faithful to his king. The Little Mermaid ordered Maurice to stay in place and watch carefully so that nothing happened, and she immediately swam to her father. Poseidon listened attentively to his daughter. At the end of the story, he hugged the Little Mermaid, kissed her and told him to do something about it.To the prodigal forest was sent a detachment of royal warriors. They were marching to Marlene that hour. And the king himself very strictly dealt with her. He drove her out of the kingdom and ordered never to return again. But what happened to the Little Mermaid? Local residents began to love and respect her. They were grateful to her for saving the kingdom. Therefore, with impatience waited for the rise of the princess to the throne. But that is another story.
