Charm staring telling:
 
- For a long time I thought my friends, what story to tell you.Each of you over the years, tells stories about dragons, fairies, unicorns and fairy creatures.So I decided to tell you the story of my life.You know that the life of each of us can fit in a book-big or small does not matter, but always in this booklet can find lesson-big or small, it does not matter.So  the story of my life is with instruction and adventure, happiness and sorrow, with the family and loneliness.
I was born into a poor family.So poor that my father had to share a handful of rice for a week, for all us.My mother died when I was one year old.My dad told me that strange human disease, took her from us.He said, that the humans call that disease with the name of the river creature with eight legs-cancer.I do not know why it is called cancer.In my world cancers are good and they always help of my family.Very often they bring to us clams from deep water, so we do not  have to eat only rice.Strange are the humans- the most terrible things they named with the best names.
I had the eight sisters.I was the biggest so I had to take care of them-my father want that from me.My father was a good dwarf, but he gets involved with people from other land.They learned him to drink strange stinky water that made him sleep much, and to beat us.One morning Dad goes to work like everyday-he was working in the mines, looking for treasure.He always told me, that if he  found it, would buy me one of those dresses for princesses.While digging deep, a pile of stones fell on him.His friends, the evening brought me only his hat, because that was all left of him.
After my father died there was no one to care for me and my sisters.
The next day in  our house came Weasel-she was responsible for children like us, who already do not have a Mom and Dad to take care of them.She take me and my sisters in boarding house for orphans.
Months past, one by one, my sisters were taken from the boarding house.I left alone.No one take me.Maybe because i was the biggest one and the most of creature prefer younger age to take care of.
One night while reading another local legend about the discovery of buried treasures of the window of my room came fairy.It was a little creature that looked like a rather glowing fly.Fairy came close to me and spoke to me:
 -  Hey Charm.My name is Fantasy and I am your godmother.it's time to tell you about your special mission in this magical forest.On your belly has a scar resembling a skull.
 
- But how do you know my scar? -I Asked with surprise in my voice, unknown to me creature.
 
-I know because I am your godmother-continue Fantasy.
When you was still unborn  your dear mother one night, decide to eat magical forest fruits which grew only in the garden of the evil witch-Skochubra.Skochubra unlike misconceptions how ugly are witches was seductive beauty.She was so beautiful that no one could imagine how ugly and black soul she had.Skochubra never shared garden with anyone and who dared to invade , she cursed him or killing him.Your mother was a rebellious and fearless woman.So one night she decided to sneak off and take some fruits.Unfortunately Skochubra saw her, decided to punish her.Your mother had just bent down and picked the wonderful fruits when Skochubra grabbed her stomach and say:
 
- Miserably  dwarf, you try to robbing from me?Hm.You know no one leave without to pay me.I curse your womb to give birth only to daughters.The largest to have a scar on her belly.The scar will be a card, not to treasures and a card that could save the forest when humans come.You'll reveal how to read the map,but you will die before you told her.My will be publicized throughout the forest.Now go before I decided now to take your life-sinister laughter filled forest after her words.
Your mother was very scared off, fled through the woods and did not stop running until go home.After month you was born.As a godmother i give you a power.You can stop humans to kill animals and cut trees,but you need to know the secret of your scarve.
After those words, Fantasy disappeared.
Years I am trying to find the key to the salvation of the forest, and I failed everyday.Humans continue to crumble, continue to kill my friends-animals, continue to think their gods.And I keep searching my dear friends, response and rescue.My heart stops while telling you this story,because i know somewhere there cut trees to make more tables and chairs,out there killing elephants just for money,out there wolves, foxes, rabbits and bears hang on necks and hands.Somewhere ends life, and death begins
All dwarfs were long asleep.Charm wearily rested her head on the pillow,close her eyes and imagine waking up how the world is another.She imagine how humans, animals and trees were friends.She imagine how it ends death and life begins.She imagined and dreamed ...
