Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 03 ‘The Game’

Day 03 is a #OneHundredWord story, inspired once again by folktales that we have been reading. We loved the thought of a child breaking the starry sky, whilst playing a simple game.

Happy Listening.

‘The Game’ by Rose English

At the top of the world, sits Nanook; surrounded by shards of black glistening crystals, light having been extinguished.

He feels guilty – but it was just a game.

Yet he had knocked the North Star from the sky, leaving his world dim.

“Have you learned your lesson boy?’

The village elder had approached silently; the heavy darkness had muffled the sound.

“Yes father. I’m sorry’.

The chief lifted a shard, it began to shine. Throwing it up into the air, it shot off at great speed, the others followed, back into the velvet night, illuminating once more the heavens.

Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 02 ‘The Nightingale and the Rose’

Day 02 and our ‘One Minute Story’ is from a folktale. It is also another #OneHundredWord story.

Happy Listening.

‘The Nightingale and the Rose’ by Rose English

It is said that long ago, the Nightingale could not sing, he simply squawked. One hot summers day, he saw a beautiful white rose and fell instantly in love.

From that day he was inspired to sing. It is believed that the flower would only open her petals when she heard the Nightingale’s song.

The pair were so in love that the little bird hugged the white rose so tightly a thorn stabbed through his heart, sadly killing him. However, Nightingale’s blood splashed the rose, turning her white petals red, and thus she stayed for the rest of her days.
