Challenge #2

In the far-away land of Ireland, there was a little village that lay at the foot of a high mountain. Every day the children went to play on the grassy bank near a pond at one end of the village.  They threw stones into the water. They fished, and they sailed their toy boats.  They picked the wildflowers that grew in the fields nearby. They carried with them potatoes to eat, and, from morning until evening, they played near the pond

One day, while they were playing, the children were surprised to see an old man with a long, white beard walking toward them. He came from the direction of the mountain. The children stopped their games to watch the old man.  He came into their midst and smiled at them. He picked up a harmonica and started playing. The children continued their play while the old man played the music. When it was time for the children to go home, the old man left a box for them and he climbed up the mountain once more disappeared. The children opened the box and discovered a box of instruments. They rejoiced and went home with the instruments. 

When they were home, their parents told me the old man was a magical elf who would give gifts for children. No one had seen him for a hundred years already. The children were the lucky group to see him.  THE END.

Practice your story at least 2 times to get really good at it.
