Little Amanda

 

Little Amanda was on her usual walk by the woods. She loved this time of the evening, the beautiful yellows and reds of the flowers contrasted well upon the green leaves. Little Amanda was engrossed in her thoughts and this evening she took on a different path that led her towards the insides of the woods. (Amanda was well aware of her mother’s warnings to avoid that path.) Suddenly, breaking free from her thoughts, Amanda realized the trees looked greener and darker and the atmosphere suddenly seemed dull and gloomy. Terrified she looked around to find her way back. As she raced across the ground, she ran helter-skelter in any direction. Finally tired, she lay beneath a large tree.

To her amazement, a little goblin ran towards her. He beckoned her to follow him. The goblin had a rough appearance and a mean expression. Terrified, she followed him quietly. Amanda knew not what it was and walked slowly behind him. As he approached a clearing, Amanda saw a strange sight. There were pretty little cottages and neat driveways. Goblins were having a merry time laughing and gorging on pies and cakes. Suddenly, Amanda stiffened. By her right, she saw a group of little children like her, toiling away and clearing the garden. They were dressed in tattered clothing and few of them were weeping bitterly. Amanda realized she had also become a slave to these rather mean goblins. Just as she realized the truth, the goblin grabbed her by the arm and pushed her roughly towards the sad children. Perplexed, there was only one thought that ran through her mind, ‘How shall I escape with all these girls and boys?’

Amanda was asked to change into rags and forced to join the groups of little boys and girls. She toiled till dinnertime cleaning all the doors and windows of the house that belonged to the horrid goblin. Hungry, she tugged the sleeve of the goblin hoping for some food. He pushed a stale loaf of bread under her nose and said, ‘That’s your meal for the night’. A rather tired Amanda was pushed into a messy room with other children for the night. Weeping, she collapsed onto a pile of straw. Suddenly she remembered her kind mother’s words about every problem having a solution. She decided she would solve this rather than weep over it. Prayers were something she believed in and she knelt down on the floor in hope for some answer.

Suddenly, there was a slight sound and Amanda opened her eyes to see a beautiful fairy seated before her. The fairy held her hand gently and told her there is way out. The horrid goblin stored all his magical powers in a beautiful porcelain doll and this doll, once broken, would free them from the clutches of the goblins.

Amanda thought deeply about this porcelain doll. ‘It must be in this house itself and close to him’ she pondered. By midnight, she happened to escape from a small window and enter the house from the backside. Her search gave her no fruitful results. That was when she entered the bedroom of the bad goblin and happened to see it by his bedside, a tall beautiful porcelain doll, radiant in the moonlight that streamed in from the window.

Scared and excited, she lunged for it but woke up the goblin as she bumped into his wooden bed. In a rage the goblin attacked her but Amanda was quicker. Throwing the doll outside the window, she yelled with happiness. The moment it crashed Amanda felt someone push her!

Startled she looked around to find her kind mother looking towards her with great surprise. ‘Why did you just throw your favorite doll around? Were you having a bad dream?’, asked Amanda’s mother. Amanda woke up bleary eyed and was pleased to find herself back in her room. Her mother than warned her, ‘How many times I have told you to avoid the woods? Do not venture towards that area’. Amanda answered meekly, ‘Yes’. Her mother further said rather sternly, ‘besides, you must not gorge so much on sweets and pies during meal times. A balanced meal is what it should be.’

Agreeing meekly, Little Amanda rushed out into the garden to play with her doll. And lo and behold, there was a tiny note placed there near the gooseberry bush that said ‘Thank you for freeing us from the bad goblins. Please accept our token of thanks!’ Amazed Amanda wondered it this was true or was it the result of too many pies and cakes! She found a tiny fairy doll beside the bush. Perplexed, she picked it up and walked back to her room. She realized from this very day, she should obey her mother and avoid going to places that were considered inappropriate. Nor would she gorge on sweets or ever be greedy at meal times! Probably this was a funny way of learning a lesson for little Amanda. If not for the kind fairy, Amanda would have still been stuck with other girls and boys toiling away for the horrid goblin.

I think that was a well-deserved lesson for Amanda. I would not want to bump into that horrid goblin! I am sure you don’t want to as well, don’t you?
