Once upon a time, there was a little boy with dark, curly hair and brown eyes. His name was Tom, and he was an orphan. He lived with his uncle in a farm, and he had to get up very early to work at the farm.
One day, he woke up, had breakfast and found a big box on the table. He opened the box, and there were all his dreams and all his fears in that box. He was very surprised! He could find all the little things he always had wanted there. In the box, there was also a note. The note said... from Mum. And there was an address also.
Tom was very happy, because he thought he would finally meet his mother. He got out of his farm, walking, and went to the train station. He asked the officer where was that place in the note, and the police officer said it was one hour away, so he bought the ticket.
He got into the train and sat down there. A while later, a man sat next to him. He wore a long, black coat. He smelled bad, and he had a weird face. Tom was afraid. The man asked him: "Where are you going, boy?". Tom answered: "to visit my mum". The man asked: "Where is she". Reluctantly, Tom showed him the paper.
The expression of the man changed. He was the surprised one then. Tom asked: what's wrong? Well...-the man answered-. Don't go there, boy. Nobody has lived in this house in a century!
Tom opened his mouth in disbelief, but he thought that, even so, he had to go there. So when the time came, he left the train (and the man) and went walking to the address.
He found it. He walked into the garden and found a very deep forest. He delved into it, scared. Suddenly, he heard a noise. He turned around, and there was him... the man in the train. He had followed him from there. He turned around and ran, until the house suddenly appeared. He opened the door and went in.
There's when the children have to invent their own ending... everyboudy is welcome to leave a comment with suggestions about how the story is going to end.
