Once upon a time, there was an extremely talkative boy named Jack Smith. He was the only child of Jane and John Smith. He was a spoilt child who was known around town for sticking his nose into other people’s affairs. Jack was extremely curious about everyone and everything. Oddly enough, he lived in a town named Reserved-Ville.
The residents of Reserved-Ville lived up to its name in their characteristics. They were known to be quiet and appeared to be frightened all the time. This may have been because once in a while children in the neighbourhood were prone to disappear very mysteriously.
One day, when Jack was walking to school he stumbled upon the most shocking sight. There were two angels dressed in pure white robes holding a struggling child and dragging him towards an alley. Jack quickly hid behind a tree and kept a very close eye on them. Then he started to follow them through the alley which led to a dark forest. Jack saw the angels dragging the child into some sort of a cave. He decided to get a closer look.
As he was tip-toeing behind the angels, silent as the night, his foot got stuck on a branch which was hiding a trap hole made by the angels. This commotion got the angels attention. They started to come towards Jack, with angry looks on their faces. Jack started to scream for help and then all of a sudden he saw another group of four beings coming.
They were demons. Jack opened his mouth to scream when one of the demons held his hand out to help Jack get out of the trap. After the demons helped Jack they turn towards the angels and a fight began. It was a fight of the superpowers.
The demons won the fight. They helped Jack get all the children out of the cave that were missing.
This story taught Jack a very important lesson. Sometimes looks could be deceiving. All of Jack’s life he was taught the angels were good and demons were bad. This incident changed all of that. The town was happy as all the families were complete...
