The stories always start with 'once upon a time, there was. . . ' But in my story it means a beautiful magical book's title. .

Can't wait to know about it. ok. . Let's start.  

A beautiful very small house was nearest the pine forest. It's covered with snow and looked so pretty like an igloo from far. In that small house, there was an elf who lived. The elf was very honest and helpful. He helped the squirrel to took the pine yams to their holes by his magic stick. He also helped the birds to built up their nests. He invited the ants for a tea party.

In one snowy morning, the dews drops were shining in the sun, bees were busy for making honey and the squirrels took yams to their holes. Everyone busy in their works. The elf got up and brushed his teeth. He had some hot chocolate and went to the forest to wandering.  

He saw a cute pretty girl was crying under the tree near the berry bush. The elf hid in the bush and thought to stop her cry. He created a very beautiful monarch butterfly with his magic stick and let her fly to the girl. Everyone knows that no one can ignore the colourful butterfly on this earth. But the girl started to crying more and said-shooo. . shooo. . go away, you dragged me in this forest and I'll not do the same foolishness. The elf understand that the girl came here after a butterfly by trying her to catch. The elf felt sad and came out from the bush. And said that girl-why are you crying? Please stop crying. The girl shouted at the elf and said-if you miss in the deep forest alone and don't know how to go back home then what should you do?

The elf smiled and said- That's not a big deal for crying much. I was also missing once;but not cried like you. The girl looked at the elf and said- you also!then how you came back?what you did without crying?

The elf said- first I was eating fruits and yummy berries then took a nap on a tree's branch. Then I started to think from which path i had reached here. I found some clues and came back. The girl wiped her tears and took a deep breath. She said -ok I'll also do the same. The elf smiled and said- lets go to eat some sweet berries and fruits.

Then the girl went to a orchid with the elf. They plucked planty of fruits and yummy berries then took a nap on a tree's branch. Then she started to think from which path she has came.

The elf was very happy with the company of girl. He offered him to come to his house and after there the elf sent her to home with his magic stick . The girl agreed and went with the elf.

But the house was too small to enter the girl. so the elf made her little size like him. Then the girl entered to the elf's house easily. She saw the elf's house was so beautiful. There were plenty of foods. Elf asked the girl for some food. They ate chocolate cakes and icecreams. Elf went to kitchen to keep the dishes for wash later.

The girl saw there was a huge book was inside  the room. It was covered with red velvet cloth and tied up with a big chain. The girl never saw such a giant book before it. And she thought how this giant book is in this small house. She pulled out the cloth to see the cover of the book. The book was covered with dust and didn't look anything clearly. The girl blown away by the dust. suddenly the house gone trembling and the dust washed away from the book's cover. The girl read its title which was written in giant letters-ONCE UPON A TIME.

When the girl whispered the book's title ONCE UPON A TIME the chains got loose the giant book. It seems like the giant book's sleep breakup.  

At that time the elf rushed to the book and covered it with that red velvet cloth and said to the girl for going her home.

The girl asked him about the giant book. Elf said her about the giant book.  

The elf said- 

Long long years ago he was a boy and lived in a village. He was very naughty and never obeyed his parents. once he was coming to the forest for the berries he lost in the forest. Then he saw this giant book. When he red the title of the book it opened. It was the gate to the wonderland. There are all real stories and characters of fantacy stories like Cinderella, rapaunjaul, red riding hood, sleeping beauty, Hansel and Gretel, barbies, mermaids, fairies, unicorn and many more. They welcomed to the boy and played with him. But they warned him not to break the rules.

The boy agreed and He opened and read about the story of the elf.

He red the story. In that story the elf had plenty of treasures and a magical stick . The boy got greedy and stolen his magic stick . The giant book got angry with the boy and turned him into a elf. From that day he lived there with the giant book and tried to be a good person.  

The girl said to the elf to open the book and she will try to help him. The elf said no the giant book is very strict and if he may get anger he may also make her any fantacy character and imprison her with the book.

But the girl requested to elf to help him.  

He went to the room and discovered that red cloth. And started whispering the title- ONCE UPON A TIME.  

The chains broke down and the giant book looked in anger and shouted at the girl-why you chained me from many years?The girl replied politely it was the boy's mistake. He was scared you from that day. But now he is a good elf. The girl washed away the dust from the giant book. The book was really dusty and he was happy from the washing. After some time The giant book asked the girl for a fantacy story

The girl agreed and wanted to read the story of Alladin from the Arabian knights. But she made a condition that she will be Jasmine and that elf will be Alladin.

The giant book laughed and agreed. He opened his cover and turned his pages . Then the page of story opened-ALLADIN AND THE MAGIC LAMP.

The girl turned into Jasmine, the princess of Baghdad. And ofcourse that elf turned into the handsome poor guy Alladin.

Once upon a time there was a king rulled over Baghdad. He had a beautiful daughter named Jasmine.

When the stubborn book turned him into elf the girl prayed for sparing him. He requested to the giant book not to turn him into elf from human. The boy also bend down and apoliged to the book. The book agreed and said to never break any rules after.

The giant book's mood was very happy that's why he forgave to the boy and said- Turn my pages and go to your homes.

The girl turned the pages and saw there the pages was about their villages and houses. They said thank you and good bye to the giant book and intered that pages and reached their homes happily.
