Magical field

I remember a story from when I was a kid about a boy and a girl who got powers and then lost them. I’ll try to tell you what I remember, and hopefully somebody will know what I’m talking about and where I can find this story: 

From what I can remember there was a magical field that the boy discovered with a tree in it and a rock. He gains the ability to do anything he can think of, including flight.

His female friend then finds the field too, and I remember them having a discussion about their powers. He demonstrates that he can fly around the tree.

He was excited that someone else knew the secret, and she told him she had gotten powers too, by saying something to the effect of, “it’s not that I can do anything, it’s that I know everything.”

She then proceeds to tell him that, for instance, if she tilts her head to a certain angle she knows that buried 6 inches under the ground near them is a coin or something.

The boy digs and does in fact find what she had described. They agree that they must never tell anyone about their powers or they will lose their new abilities altogether.

Later the boy was injured somehow, I believe he broke his arm, and the girl knew how to bandage him up and drive him to a hospital because of her abilities.

But then when she got there the adults were suspicious of how a child could have done all that. I believe in the end they both lose their powers. Does any of this sound at all familiar to someone?

Why The Snake Has No Legs

Once upon a time, long long ago, there lived a Snake, but he wasn’t just any other Snake, he was blind. He always told himself “I’m the first of my kind and I’m blind, I’m such a disappointment.”

 

As you can tell, he was always very hard on himself for being blind, but all of his friends knew it wasn’t his fault. But from time to time they get so tired of Snake and say some very harsh words that make him feel disgusting inside.

 

Being blind made Snake’s life very compact. Doing simple tasks were difficult for him, and he always gets in lots of trouble because of it. When Snake went places, he would get mocked, so he would run away while crying to himself for hours.

 

One day, Snake decided to go to a festival because he was in such a good mood, but things started to turn ugly in seconds.

 

At the Festival ~

 

Snake starts by bumping into Zebra. Zebra tells Snake about the festival of colours and feels bad for Snake because he cannot see. Snake tries to find the festival of colours but just keeps bumping into stuff.

 

Snake bumps into more animals and they all feel bad for Snake once they find out that he is blind. Snake bumps into Turtle again and Turtle Yells at him. Then Turtle suggests that Snake borrows a pair of eyes for the festival.

 

Snake tries to bribe Frog for his eyes because Frog is sick. Snake realises that Frog eyes are too big for him and lets Frog take them back. Snake then tries to bribe Chameleon for his eyes with flies.

 

Chameleon eyes are too colourful for Snake, so Snake lets Chameleon take them back. Snake runs into a Centipede. The Centipede is stuck and cannot crawl out. Snake offers to trade his eyes for Snake’s legs.

 

The centipede accepts, so Snake gives him his legs. The Centipede runs around all happy and gives Snake his eyes. Snake goes happily to the festival of colours.

 

And that’s why Snakes have no legs!

3 Sisters

Long ago in the Blue Mountains, three Aboriginal sisters; Meenhi, Wimlah and Gunnedoo lived with their father, a Witch doctor named Tyawan.

 

In the same forest lived a gigantic creature that was feared by all – he was the Bunyip. Tyawan who knew where he lived would leave his daughters on the cliff behind a rocky wall where they would be safe while he would collect food.

One day, waving goodbye to his daughters he descended the cliff steps. On the top of the cliff, a big lizard suddenly appeared and frightened Meenhi. She picked up a stone and threw it at the lizard.

The stone rolled away over the cliff and crashed into the valley below. Suddenly, the rocks behind the three sisters split open, leaving the sisters on a thin ledge.

There was a deep rumble from below and the angry Bunyip emerged from his sleep. He looked up to see who had rudely awakened him and there perched on the thin ledge he saw the sisters cowering in fear. Furiously he lurched towards them.

 

In the valley, Tyawan heard the cry and looked up to see that the Bunyip had almost reached his daughters. Frantically the Witch Doctor pointed his magic bone at the girls and turned them into stone.

They would be safe there until the Bunyip was gone and then Tyawan would return them to their former selves.

The Bunyip was even more angry when he saw what had happened and he turned on Tyawan and began to chase him. Running away, Tyawan found himself trapped against a rock which he could neither climb nor go around.

He quickly changed into a Lyrebird and disappeared into a small cave. Everyone was safe but Tyawan had dropped his magic bone. The Bunyip returned angrily to his hole.

Tyawan crept out of the cave and searched for the bone, and is still seeking it while the Three Sisters stand silently waiting, hoping he will find the bone and turn them back to their former selves.

You can see the Three Sisters today from Echo Point and in the valley you can hear Tyawan, the Lyrebird, calling them as he searches for his lost magic bone.

 

Moral: The forests are beautiful, but you must always be careful to know what creatures live there.

Orphan

There was a beautiful orphan girl named Christina. She has beautiful blue eyes with long brown hair. Her mum was screaming during childbirth and then suddenly she died. She had lost everyone in her family during this time because no one wanted her. Her mum’s parents died before I was born. Since her dad didn’t have a wife anymore he went for a new woman. Now Christina lives in an orphanage.

 

In her orphanage there is an event where the strict leader lets the orphans go out of the orphanage, once a year on their birthday. The leader actually hates them but he didn’t want rumours about him hating them. One day on her birthday, Christina was outside talking to herself. She was saying, “What should I ……” SLAM. “OUCH” cried Christina. She just got hit by a car and the car fled the scene.

 

A man was walking on the side of the road. The man’s smile suddenly turned into a frown when he noticed a girl lying on the road. The man felt so bad for her so he called the ambulance immediately. After she was examined by the doctors and the nurse, the man was told by the doctor that she had lost her memory.

 

The doctor said that the man can have a talk with her. When the man went inside he noticed an orphanage bracelet. It said friends of orphan’s street. Suddenly the man called the leader. When the leader told the kids, they burst into tears and they cried their hearts out. The strict leader took pity on them and took them to the hospital. The leader tried to talk to Christina to make her remember her past.

 

The kids say their names, show pictures and say funny memories to get her memory back, but it doesn’t work. When they realised that it didn’t work they asked the doctor if there was a special treatment. He said “yes!” The only reason that the leader asked is because he did not want to look bad in public.

 

After they did the treatment she s l o w l y got her memory back. On the leader’s birthday he goes out to celebrate. That day the children got exciting news. The leader died in a car accident. He passed away instead of surviving. As soon as the kids heard that, they started voting Christina to be the leader.
