The Story of a Little Girl

 

Chapter 1

Once upon a time there was a little girl. She had a big beautiful garden, where she spent all her days feeding the squirrels, talking to the flowers, chasing bunnies, climbing trees, playing with her toys and sleeping in a hammock. She was very happy and she never wanted it to end.

Chapter 2

One day a little boy wandered into the garden. The little girl got scared and hid behind a big leaf of a nearby bush so that only her big round eyes were seen. The little boy smiled, told his name and asked if he could join the girl and play with her in the garden. She thought for a moment, but then smiled back and came out from behind the big leaf to meet the boy.

Chapter 3

The little boy started coming every day. He and the little girl became best friends. They spent all their days feeding the squirrels, talking to the flowers, chasing bunnies, climbing trees, playing with the girl’s toys and sleeping in a hammock. The little girl was very happy and she never wanted it to end.

Chapter 4

One day the little boy came to the garden feeling sad. The little girl got very worried and tried hard to cheer him up. “What can I do to make you happy again? I’ll do anything! Would you like to have my toys?” she stretched her favorite teddy bear towards the boy. The boy lifted his head, looked at the teddy bear and smiled. They spent the rest of the day feeding the squirrels, talking to the flowers, chasing bunnies, climbing trees and sleeping in a hammock. The little girl was very happy and she never wanted it to end.

Chapter 5

Then the boy didn’t come for several days in a row. The little girl was so upset that she couldn’t play anymore. She kept thinking about the boy, wondering if he was OK. On the fourth morning he came back, and the girl was thrilled, but the boy felt sad again. “What can I do to make you happy? I’ll do anything! Would you like to have my hammock?” she pointed to the trees in the back of the yard. The boy lifted his head, looked at the hammock and smiled. They spent the rest of the day feeding the squirrels, talking to the flowers, chasing bunnies and climbing trees. The little girl was very happy and she never wanted it to end.

Chapter 6

But it did… One day it all came to an abrupt end… The little boy didn’t show up for a whole week, and then another one, and then one more… The little girl couldn’t stop thinking about the boy, but she didn’t know what to do. She lost her appetite and spent all days lying under a tree, worrying about the little boy, remembering all the fun they used to have together and feeling very, very sad.

Chapter 7

Then she received a letter. It was from the little boy. He wasn’t coming back. He’d found another girl to play with. He liked her more than the little girl. He was happier with the new girl…

When the little girl woke up, she saw that she was in the hospital. She blinked her eyes several times and fell into a deep sleep again…

Chapter 11

The little girl was told that she had slept for three weeks. She was delirious and very weak. No one knew if she would make it.
The little girl listened to that silently and asked to be moved back to her garden. The doctor said it was too early for her to leave, but she insisted, so she was taken home. She slept for another three weeks under her favorite tree in her beautiful garden.

Chapter 13

When the little girl woke up again, she felt very hungry. Her friends, squirrels, brought her some nuts. The little girl smiled and had the most delicious nuts she had ever tried. Then her friends, bunnies, brought her bright orange carrots. She ate them with the sweet, juicy apple that she had picked up from her favorite tree. While she was crunching on her food, she noticed the intoxicating smell of the white jasmine flowers. “Ahhhh,” the little girl said. I’ve missed you so much, my friends!

Chapter 14

The following day the girl felt strong enough to play again, so she went back to feeding the squirrels, talking to the flowers, chasing bunnies and climbing trees. She was very, very happy and it never ended.
