SHORT UNICORN STORY
Once upon a time there was a herd of unicorns living in a field behind an old farmhouse.
Unicorns are very special creatures, for one thing, they are magical. They are invisible to everyone unless they choose you as a friend to be able to see them. In this herd, no human could see them because they wanted to stay hidden.
One unicorn named Titi was younger than all the others, and the older unicorns would not let her participate in their games. She was so lonely and sad that one day she decided to go to the farm and see if there was someone to play with.
What she saw made her smile. She was the farmer’s daughter playing alone in the garden and the best she could do was pretend she had a horse. The Unicorn thought, “What if I could play with that little girl and be her real horse? So Titi approached the little girl and shook magic unicorn dust at her.
The little girl could not believe her eyes, standing before her was the most beautiful, shining pink Unicorn. The little girl rubbed her eyes in disbelief and said, “Are you real?” “Yes,” said Titi, “I saw you playing and wondered if you wanted to play with me?
The little girl laughed and shouted, “I would love to play with you. My name is Gracie and I’m four years old. Come on, let’s play. Titi and Gracie played all day; they had the best day of their lives.
At dinnertime, Gracie’s mom came out of the house and told her to come to dinner. Gracie asked if her new friend Tweety the Unicorn could come too. Her mom said, “Don’t be silly, Gracie, Tweety isn’t real, she’s just pretending. When Tweety found out that she had dropped a magical twilight on Gracie’s mommy.
In an instant, Gracie’s mom started rubbing her eyes when she saw the most wonderful Unicorn standing right in front of her. Then she looked around the farm and saw many, many unicorns. She almost fell down when the Unicorn started talking. “I’m real and I’m Gracie’s new friend,” Titi says.
Well, you’d better come over for dinner. What do unicorns eat?” asked Gracie’s mother.
