2: Kathryn was an eight-year-old girl. Her mom was Renee and her dad was Paul. They lived in a log cabin in the middle of the most magical forest. It was amazing. It was full of beautiful flowers and had all kinds of mystical creatures like unicorns, centaurs, and dragons. Kathryn had magic powers just like her parents. But, there was one rule of magicNEVER use it in public! She had been told that if she did something bad would happen. It was a rule she had never broken. Out in public, Kathryn had to act like a normal person, which was hard for her. To seem normal, she had to do her least favorite thing in the entire world; lie. She had to tell her friends that she put the horn on her unicorn. She hated lying! She knew it was a bad thing and could be punished for it. But what she did not know is that breaking rules can do the same thing! Kathryn wasn't a big fan of school. It got so boring and she always wanted it to be over! So one day, she made it be over... | “HI MOMMY!” Kathryn yelled as she slide off her unicorn. “I’M HOME!” Kathryn ran inside and hugged her mom while she told her how her day went.
3: They talked about their weekend every chance they got all day, until a guest speaker came. He was so boring that it seemed he would never stop talking! Kathryn looked at Elizabeth who looked back at her. They both looked at the clock and were amazed to find out how little time had passed. Kathryn repeated in her head the only thing she could think “soooo bored!” until she couldn't stand it any longer... | When Kathryn arrived at school, her best friend, Elizabeth, who rode a brown horse, immediately greeted her. Kathryn, sliding off her white unicorn, smiled and greeted Elizabeth back.
4: Kathryn looked around the room to make sure no one was watching. Then, when the teacher was focused on scolding another student for passing notes, Kathryn perched her eyes on the clock. As she stared at it, the hands started spinning faster. The boring teacher started talking faster, and before she knew it everything was speeding. | The teacher was talking so fast she couldn't understand anything he was saying. She started laughing and couldn't stop. She laughed until she couldn't breath any more but she kept fast-forwarding until school was over
5: When they got to a fork in the road, they said goodbye and went their separate ways. When Kathryn was alone she though about what she had done and then she thought about the first rule of magic. “Oops!” she thought to herself, “oh well. One time shouldn't hurt.” But she was wrong! | "I know!", Elizabeth said "But I thought the topic was interesting". "Not me", Katheryn replied "I hated the whole thing". they talked about it the whole ride home. | "The guest speaker was so boring!", Kathryn said as she mounted her unicorn.
6: Kathryn looked around, not sure that she was in the right place. Her beautiful, magical forest was GONE! It had been replaced with a dark and gloomy forest that was almost scary. Kathryn looked down at her unicorn and realized with horror that her beloved unicorn’s horn was shrinking. Then she thought of her magic. She closed her eyes and counted to 10 expecting that when she opened her eyes that her magical forest would be back to normal. A light breeze blew through her hair, so she thought the magic had worked. But when she opened her eyes, she saw that the magic had failed and she was still surrounded by dark and gloomy woods. She tried a couple more times but all failed, so she kicked her unicorn twice and sped through the woods all the way home. | As she approached her magical forest, she realized something was wrong. “Um”, she stuttered as she looked around at the magical forest. “Go on Girl. It'll be okay” she said kicking her unicorn and encouraging her to keep moving forward.
7: When Kathryn got closer to him, he slowly lifted his head to see Kathryn on her horse. “Why, you look upset about something. Can I ask what might be bothering you?” asked the old wizard. Kathryn's face lit up. “I know you! You’re the old wizard that gave my family our powers! Well here's the problem; I came home from school one day and my powers were GONE! The next day my unicorn had been turned into a horse. Now ALL the magic in our forest is GONE!” Kathryn started crying. “I know your problem”, the old wizard replied. Then he explained the first rule of magic and how she broke it. | Three befuddling days after Kathryn’s world was turned upside down, an old wizard stopped her on her way home from school. He was wearing a light blue robe and a tall pointy hat, which was also light blue. He had a long, white beard, and was hunched over a walking stick.
8: After making Kathryn agree to NEVER break the first rule of magic, the old wizard granted Kathryn and her family their magic back. Kathryn got her unicorn back along with her magical forest! She was so happy! Finally her life was back to normal...well normal for her anyway.
