the girl in the woods
Once upon a time, in a deep dark forest, there lived a girl . She lived by herself with the company of magical talking trees, the beasts, elves and fairies in the woods. She was never once complain nor feel lonely, until one day she found a secret path, a way out of her so-called- home for the longest she can remember.
She was lost, then she crawled into one hole she’d never seen before, finding herself stuffed into one tiny little hole frightened her, she thought of giving up and going back to where she was before, but then again, tiny bit part of her was really curious about how the end of the tiny little hole would be like. The tiny rocks and dry twigs inside the hole scratched her body all over, but her curiosity made her feel nothing, she didn’t care and kept on crawling with certainty, she knew that something amazing was there at the end of the tunnel.

She breathed the fresh cool air with soothing breeze tickling her neck, she looked around smiling, knowing that she had just passed one tough passage. But then, she was disappointed to know that actually she knew that place, it was so familiar, she looked back just realised that the hole had been there forever, it is just located under the easy pathway she usually took to cross the river. She felt so stupid and started crying, her sobbing drew the residents of the woods, most of them come running to her and tried to comfort her with singings, dancings and full on attention.
After awhile, her crying stopped, and one wise elf approached her, patted her on her had and hugged her tight saying,
