The Three Wishes
It was a sping evening I was walking through the forest on my black stallion Storm to go see my Granny and Grandad. I had to go and help Granny feed the new born calves because Grandad was sick and he could not do it. Threw the forest the ground was moist and soft with daffodils and snowdrops scattered all around. you could get the sound of lambs in the fields with their mothers coming from the distance. Suddenly Storm stopped, I tried kicking him on but he would not go. I got off him and grabed his reins and started walking. We were going for a while when we heard a loud bang. Storm reared up on his hind legs and he started when he settled down he would not go any further so I tied him to a tree.
I went on a little further and I came to a lake there was a boat on the lake. I was tempted to go across the lake on it. After a few minutes of thinking I said I would go across the lake. I was wondering what I would do with Storm then I saw bucket. I filled the bucket with water and brought it over to Storm was but he was gone. I went across the lake on the boat when I got across the lake I heard Storm. I followed the noise. When I was walking I thought I heard two horses.
I went a little further and I came to an old ragedy house and two stables. I saw Storm and another chestnut pony in the stable. I was just about to go over to the stable when suddenly I heard a little voice shout out to me "dont go any further" it said.
Next a little body jumped on to my shoulder it was a lepracon he said "hi my name is Seamus dont go in there thats the house of Sasquatch hes the villian of this forrest". " He took my pony its in that stable and theres another chestnut pony with him". "Yes thats Flicka " said O'Reily. "We will all go in together" said Seamus. So we started walking towrds the house we got the two ponys out of the shed.
We rang the gaurds, after an hour we heard sirens. In a few minutes the gaurds had come and surrounded the house. Then they went inside but they found nothing. Seamus said "check the attic" and what do you know he was there he was arrested for stealing pony's. Then Seamus said " we have to grant you three wishes now". My first wish was that "I had a ranch for the two pony's, my second wish was that "nobody would not steal", my third wish was that "pony's would never get hurt. And the three wishes came true. I brought the two pony's to the ranch and a year Flicka had a foal and I called him Prince.
