The Secret Garden


By Isaac PeterPublished 3 months ago 4 min read

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Lily who loved to play in the garden behind her house. The garden was beautiful, with flowers of every color, trees that touched the sky, and a small pond where frogs and fish swam together.

One day, as Lily was playing in the garden, she noticed a door hidden behind the ivy. She had never seen it before, and she couldn't resist the urge to open it. She turned the knob, and the door creaked open.

Behind the door was a secret garden that she had never seen before. It was more beautiful than anything she had ever seen. The flowers were bigger, and the trees were taller. She felt like she had stepped into a magical world.

Lily explored the garden and found a small bench underneath a tree. She sat down and closed her eyes, feeling the warm sun on her face. Suddenly, she heard a voice.

"Welcome to my garden," said the voice. "I am the Guardian of the Garden."

Lily looked around but couldn't see anyone. "Who are you?" she asked.

"I am the Guardian of the Garden," the voice repeated. "I have been waiting for someone like you to come and visit."

Lily looked around again but still couldn't see anyone. "Where are you?" she asked.

"I am here, all around you," the voice replied. "I am the spirit of the garden. I watch over the plants, the trees, and the animals that live here. And now, I will watch over you, too."

Lily felt a chill run down her spine. She had never heard of a garden spirit before. But then she remembered the frogs and the fish in the pond, and she realized that anything was possible in this magical garden.

The Guardian of the Garden showed Lily around, pointing out different plants and trees and teaching her their names. She saw a rose that smelled like honey, a tree with leaves that shimmered in the sunlight, and a flower that glowed in the dark.

As they walked, the Guardian of the Garden told Lily stories about the garden and the creatures that lived there. Lily listened, wide-eyed, as the stories unfolded before her.

When it was time to leave, the Guardian of the Garden said, "Remember, Lily, this garden is a secret. It's up to you to keep it safe and protected. You must never tell anyone about it, or it will lose its magic."

Lily promised that she would keep the garden a secret. She walked back through the door and into her own garden, feeling like she had been on an amazing adventure.

From that day on, Lily visited the secret garden whenever she could. She would sit on the bench and talk to the Guardian of the Garden, and they would watch the plants grow and the animals play. She felt like she had a special friend who understood her in a way that no one else did.

And even though she wanted to share the secret garden with others, she knew that she couldn't. She knew that it was a special place, meant only for her and the Guardian of the Garden. And she was grateful for the magic that she had found there

As the days went by, Lily noticed that the garden seemed to be changing. The plants were growing faster, the flowers were blooming brighter, and the animals were more active. She asked the Guardian of the Garden about it, and the spirit told her that it was because of her love and care for the garden. Lily was amazed to realize that she had a special connection with the garden and that her presence there made a difference.

One day, Lily was playing in her own garden when she overheard her parents talking about selling the house. She felt her heart sink. What would happen to the secret garden if someone else moved in? She knew she had to do something to protect it.

Lily went to the secret garden and told the Guardian of the Garden about her parents' plans. "I don't want to leave," she said. "I don't want to leave the garden behind."

The Guardian of the Garden listened quietly, and then said, "There is a way to keep the garden safe, Lily. You must take care of it and keep it alive in your heart. Even if you move away, the garden will stay with you as long as you remember it and love it."

Lily felt a weight lifted from her shoulders. She knew that she could do that. She would never forget the secret garden, and she would always love it, no matter where she went.

And so, Lily moved away from her house and the garden behind it, but she never forgot about the secret garden. She would close her eyes and remember the smell of the honey rose, the shimmering leaves of the tree, and the glowing flower in the dark. And in her heart, she knew that the garden was always with her, a special place that she would always cherish.
