The Princess's Trick part III

Timothy laughed. What a scaredy cat," he thought as he walked up to the door of the same house. He knocked on the door. "Trick or-what?"he said when the person opened the door. The person was dressed as a princess. O.K. that's not such a big deal. A lot of people dress up as princesses on Halloween. But this princess looked exactly like the one he had scared. In fact, it was the same one! "Trick or treat," she said sweetly, as she dropped a piece of candy in his bag. As he walked away he shook his head and laughed. He said, "I may have scared her, but she sure tricked me good!"

The Princess's Trick part II

The princess heard something rustle nearby. "What was that," she asked herself fearfully. Frightened, she kept walking, closer and closer to the door. As the dark clouds covered the moon overhead and a chilly wind passed over her, she shivered. She thought, "Maybe I don't like being alone after all. I have a bad feeling that something is about to happen and I won't like it." Suddenly the boy, Timothy, jumped out at her from behind the house. And what else would he be dressed as but a vampire of course! "Boo!" he yelled out. The princess screamed as she ran away. "Help!" Timothy laughed, "hahaha!" The princess yelled back at him, "I hate vampires. I hate, hate, hate, hate them!

The Princess's Trick part I

It was Halloween night.Everyone was outside trick or treating. A princess walked up to the next house on her street. "This is so much fun," she thought. "My parents finally let me go by myself this year, because I am ten years old now. This is my favorite time of year, besides Christmas and my birthday of course. It's sort of scary out here by myself, though. I hope there aren't any vampires out right now," she thought as she walked up the driveway. She couldn't see the boy, Timothy, on the side of the house, since it was so dark. But Timothy could see her. "Hehe, he said. "Someone to frighten." Quickly he hid.

The ungrateful crane

One day as a crane, standing by a pond, saw a wolf, who looked in pain. The wolf came up and asked him if he would pull a bone out of his mouth, because it had gotten stuck in his throat. The crane agreed once the wolf promised to pay him a large amount of money in return for doing the favor. As soon as the crane had finished this horrendous task he demandingly asked for his reward of money. The wolf haughtily laughed and said, “Don’t you have a reward big enough, for I have been kind enough to let you safely pull your big, empty head from the jaws of a wolf. Surely you are not ungrateful for that!”
