Once upon a time, in a far away but very magical kingdom there lived a boastful dragon, a bashful girl and a charming prince. These three were the best of friends. One day they all decided to go for a very long walk. They were headed for the magical mystical land of fire, flowers, and candy.

On their way they bumped into an old woman who looked very thirsty. The old woman asked the three friends if they could get her some water. The boastful dragon said "I would get you some water but I would need something to show people what I have done."

The old woman frowned and explained to him she had nothing to give. After hearing that, the boastful dragon walked away.

The charming prince said " Madam I would be honored to get you some water, but first you must tell me how handsome I am."

Puzzled the old woman looked at him and explained that she could not lie and told him he was not at all charming. After hearing this the charming prince stormed off.

Now the old woman, whom was very thirsty, looked at the bashful girl. "Young lady, I asked your friends to get me some water because I am very thirsty but they would not. Now I ask you, will you please fetch me some water?"

The bashful girl looked at the old woman, cheeks turning bright red. After a few minutes the girl looked down, closed her eyes and began to sing.

"Oh God hear my plea,

Fill up my cup,

Make the heavens cry."

And after she sang that, a cup appeared in front of the old woman. The bashful girl explained that since the old woman never got mad with her friends she gave her special water. It was made from angel tears. The old woman still surprised looked down and said, "Little girl, this is the kindest thing anyone has ever done for me. Now I shall bless you." With that said the old woman turned into a very beautiful witch. She started to chant:

"The one that's selfless and kind,

May her dreams all come true."

And with that said, they said their "thank you's" and went their seperate ways.

Once the three friends finally arrived to the magical mystical land of fire, flowers, and candy they were surprised to see it no longer had fire or candy. It was now the magical mystical land of flowers.

But they just laughed and played.

THE END!
