The Key To The Unexpected

By Marian Cavazos Published about a month ago 3 min read

Once upon a time, in a small village nestled in a valley surrounded by lush green mountains, there lived a young girl named Lily. She lived in a cozy cottage with her parents and younger brother, Jack. Lily loved nothing more than exploring the world around her, and she spent most of her days wandering through the forest, climbing trees, and playing in the streams.

One day, while out on one of her adventures, Lily stumbled upon a small clearing in the forest. In the center of the clearing, there was a beautiful, sparkling fountain. The water glistened in the sunlight, and Lily couldn't resist the urge to dip her toes in.

As she approached the fountain, she noticed a small wooden box sitting on the edge. It was intricately carved with delicate patterns and seemed to glow in the sunlight. Lily was curious, so she opened the box.

Inside, she found a small, silver key. It was unlike anything she had ever seen before, and Lily couldn't help but feel that it was important. She wondered what it could unlock, and she decided to take it home and keep it safe.

Over the next few weeks, Lily couldn't stop thinking about the key. She knew that it must unlock something special, and she was determined to find out what it was. She asked everyone in the village if they had seen anything like it before, but no one had.

One day, as she was wandering through the forest, she heard a faint humming sound coming from a nearby tree. Curious, she climbed up to investigate, and she found a small door hidden in the branches. It was locked, but she knew that the key must fit.

Trembling with excitement, Lily pulled out the silver key and inserted it into the lock. With a soft click, the door swung open, revealing a small room filled with glittering treasures. There were jewels, golden trinkets, and sparkling gems lining the walls.

But what caught Lily's eye the most was a small, intricately carved music box sitting in the center of the room. She picked it up and turned the key. Soft, enchanting music filled the room, and Lily felt as though she was transported to another world.

The other World

From that day on, Lily treasured the music box and the key that had unlocked it. She realized that sometimes, the greatest treasures are found in the most unexpected places, and that the magic of life lies in the adventures we take and the mysteries we uncover.

Every day growing up she would go and take herself into the other world, She loved it there. As the years passed she got a job there and went to college. She even had a new home to where one day she thought to herself it is time for me to bring my family over to this world and stay this time here they will be so happy here just like me. The following year it was Christmas and she wanted her family to come to the beautiful world she now called home and she took her family and they were stunned at what was before there very eyes they could not believe how they never saw that part of the world not knowing they could of never seen that part of the world for it did not exit only with the key they were able to go back and fourth but lily did not want to ever go back looking at her family so happy going into their new home she threw the key away in the stream and never looked back.
