The Fairies

A myth submitted to the site by Roisin Martin


Long ago in the countryside, miles from the town was a magnificent old oak house with an enormous garden and twenty servants and cooks. In the house lived a man named Conor and his daughter Luna.

Luna had everything a child could want and more. But still on and on she went about how nobody got her anything and she had nothing to do.

One day Conor arrived home with some bad news. He called everyone to the kitchen. "Ok , I afraid we have to move and loose all of you", he said I am running short on money. Later that day Luna and Conor set off.

Deeper and deeper they travelled into the forest. At last they reached a tiny house with a thatched roof. "Ah, here we are", Conor said. Luna was horrified at the size of the house but most of all she was horrified at the thought of living in the forest.

The next morning Luna awoke early she decided to wander into the forest and collect some berries. Suddenly she saw a bright light. She didn't know why but she forced herself to follow it. She must have fallen asleep because when she woke she was standing in front of a beautiful palace. Again she found herself being forced to walk into the palace. Inside was a throne and sitting on the throne was a tiny little person, Luna supposed she was some sort of Queen .
"You are now my prisoner, you won't escape until you learn your lesson", she said.

So day after day Luna worked and worked for the little people until one day the Queen called her to come in front of her throne once more.
"Well done," she said, "you have worked hard. To reward you I will give you back your house and your money and all your possessions, on one condition. You always be grateful for what you have and never be greedy again".

Luna promised so her and her father moved back into their house and Luna was never ungrateful or greedy again.
