Autumn Elf and Autumn Snow
“I really wish it would snow,” said Autumn Elf.
“What did you just say?” asked Autumn Elf’s sister, Stella, not believing that her brother wanted it to snow. “I thought you didn’t like winter.”
“I don’t like winter,” said Autumn Elf. “But if it snows in the autumn season then that is good.”
“How can it be good if it snows in the autumn season?” asked Stella. “This doesn’t make any sense.”
“Autumn snow is special,” said Autumn Elf.
“What do you mean?” asked Stella.
“It will bring us good luck,” said Autumn Elf.
Stella liked the idea of having good luck.
“I think we should pray for snow,” said Stella.
“Of course,” said Autumn Elf. “We all must pray for snow for autumn.”
For the next few days Stella went to the village and asked everyone to pray for snow.
“Autumn snow,” said Frankton, one of the elder elves. “Why do we want to pray for it?”
“Autumn Elf said it will bring us good luck,” explained Stella.
“We could always use good luck,” said Frankton. “So, I guess I will pray for some autumn snow.”
Over the next few days, everyone in the village prayed for snow. However, no matter how hard or how often they prayed, it just would not snow.
“Autumn Elf,” said Stella, one evening after dinner. “How come we are not getting any snow? Everyone in the village has been praying for it.”
“”I am happy it did not snow,” said Autumn Elf.
“What do you mean?” asked Stella, feeling like she just wasn’t getting a proper answer from her brother. “I thought you said autumn snow is good luck.”
“It is good luck,” said Autumn Elf. “However, it is even better luck if everyone wished for autumn snow but we didn’t get any.”
Stella just shook her head. Sometimes, she just did not understand her brother because sometimes he didn’t make any sense.
