WOODS TREASURE by Granny Annie

Three young boys ran with speed back to Granny and Grandpa's.

It was their first exploration of the grandparent's new country home.

Trees, grass, fields and animals surrounded the magical place. These youngsters loved the freedom of exploring. Now the boys had news to share of their wanderings.

"We have found a secret house in the woods." they shouted. "It is so tiny we believe it is a house for elves."

"Elves you say?" their granddad ask.  "Why do  you believe that?"

With wide eyes and open mouths the boys exclaimed that they believed they heard rustling in the grass and knew it was the elves running away.

The grandparents were delighted.  Grandpa winked at Grandma, proud of the treasure he had built and hidden for the boys to find.
