One day a goddess named Rose had a beautiful paddock of white roses, she adored them and she watered them every day. She protected them by putting big fences around them.
The land was troubled by fighting and wars. She didn’t notice it at all. It didn’t affect her for a couple of months. She kept on growing and, watering her roses day by day, but she went to the hospital, because she was dehydrated.
She stayed at the hospital for about two months. While she was in hospital, the war came. It was one very unlucky two months
Soldiers were slicing and chopping with their swords, blood dripping from their bodies , splattered everywhere on the roses, the grass, everything was turned red! Some roses were spotted red, and some were completely red.
Once one side of the war was killed the other side picked them up, and put them in the garbage. The soldiers saw the roses, so they pulled the roses out the ground, but once they put the seeds in the ground they grew back very, very quick, but one thing….. They weren’t white, they were red! They were so stained the blood went into the seed. So the soldiers kept on pulling them out and growing them, but still were red. But he gave up, so he left them, and returned home.
When Rose came home, she found out, but once she saw, she dropped her mouth, she was so surprised. So she was that happy, she kept it.
And that’s why roses are red!
