Forest of Discoveries

Deep in the darkest forest in the world there's a small town that was completely engulfed by the woods. The town used to be magnifcent and in its prime. Everyone wanted to go therejust to get a glimpse at their main tourist attraction. That was there Library Museum; it had everything in it from journals to the Civil War al the way to prophecies from the past predicting the future. One day a cyncal man walked into town brandishing a contract that said he wa allowed to touch and research everything in the museum. When the people heard that the mayor was inert in the whole situation the town went into a state of despair. The man brought gadgets and research terms and they impeded the civilians from going into the museum. The man spent a profound amount of time and soon his family started to worry and call all hours of the day but he never picked up the phone. Finally, after he grew lonely be called them back, he behaved in a staid manor when he talked to his family and to minimize the conversationhe invited them all to join him. The owns people were overtaken by that also but they knew it would be soon that they would come. The mans family arrived a week later, they came in such a splendor of limo's and lggage trucks. The family was not as dedicated as the man, all they wanted to do was take pictures of the town and enjoy the store's. Except for one of his nephews, he would be around the working site touching and looking around with his small black eyes summing up the value everything. He had such a grotesque fce and attitude, he never picked up after himself in his hotel room, and he was also mean to everyone he passed by. One day he was caught putting a priceless artifact in his pocket and was menaced by the men of the townto never do it agai. The annual music festival was finally here,they have a festival every spring,and it was in full spring. Because on that day everyone was out in t he fields having fun and there was no work to be done. Even the man and his family was there,but there was one person who was misteriously absent from the festivities. A little girlwanted tosee the museum for the first time, it was custom for children not to be alowed by he artifacts until they teached the age of 7, so the little girl snook away from the party to go see. When she walked in she saw the man's nephew utting things in a black bag so she screamed and he stoped and jumped up trying to make her believe that it was all a misconception and to not tell anyone. She quickly ran away in search of her father and told him urgently but rather sheepishly what she saw at the museim. The man was near by and heard what the little girl said and tried to appologize for his nephews actons but it was too late the damage was done. He and his family were banned from the towmn to never come back, all because of one greedy nephew. The town felt so betrayed by their actions that they hid their town with the earth never to be seen or discovered again.
