S: Ethan and Alex
FC: Ethan and Alex | By, Marissa Seidel & Katlyn Rush
1: Once there were two trees named Ethan and Alex. They were the first trees on the earth.
3: Ethan and Alex became the mother and father of all of the trees on earth. Their children stretched far and wide, for many many years.
4: All the trees talked to each other all the time. One day word got to them that something was happening to the trees.
7: They were being cut down by a new creature to the forest. That night they held a meeting with the other old trees to talk about what they were going to do.
9: They decided that there wasn't much they could do. These creatures were like monsters ripping through the forest. Years and years went by and fewer and fewer trees were left. The creatures were humans. They were taking the land the trees were on for their new city. As the city grew closer to the center of the forest Ethan and Alex grew sadder and sadder. Their forest was under attack.
10: Finally one day there was almost no forest left. Just Ethan and Alex. They seemed all alone in the world, swept up in the center of the city.
12: Today they still stand alone in the city center. There was talk of cutting them down, but they were too big for any machines to cut down. So they still stand alone and sad in the world because no one knew that trees have feelings too.
