Two people came out of a building into a story...

Once upon a time…

Far, far away on the highlands of green lived two characters, namely Jack and Jill.

They lived in a tiny, ferocious and crumbed up building – ‘their house’. Never have they seen the outside world and never have they stepped a foot on the green grass. They were both feeling drained, all moody and depressed. They were very unhappy, very poor, and for times had been hard they had no friends and yet nothing left to eat…

All they had was these three little magical beans – too hard to eat, too less to fill the hunger. Jack and Jill decided to explore the green on their doorstep. They came out of a building into a story …

Jack and Jill dug a hole for they hoped that the three magical beans will fill the fields with a taste of corn. Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. They came running down the hill, eager to wet the beans. After waiting anxiously for something to happen, the beans started to grow up, reaching the sky.

There Jack and Jill watched as the beanstalk stretched up and up as far as they could see, into the sky. Curious as Jack and Jill was, shall they see to where it leads? They began climbing the beanstalk upwards. After a time their little house looked a mere speck below, but at last the stalk ended.

They found their selves on ground made from fluffy soul. Gazed into this new adventure they found a great castle a little way off. More surprised than ever, for Jack and Jill could not imagine how happy they will live in there.

But a hungry giant waits, for him to be defeated by Jack and Jill. “Fee, fi, fo, fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman; Be he alive, or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread!” said the giant. Golden eggs will make poor Jack and Jill rich and a table filled with food will release their hunger.

Jack and Jill led the giant to the beanstalk. Down fell the giant with a terrible crash and that was the end of him. Jack and Jill went back into a building – ‘the castle’, and lived happy ever after.

The End.


Note: I would like to add to this poem or story of mine that this was written by me and only me. No copy and paste was done. I incorporated about two or three sentences from the actual story/stories.

    Very creative Roelien! And I am touched by your honesty at the end where you mentioned that you only took a 2 or 3 sentences from the original. It must have taken a lot of effort to compile so beautifully. Great work!
