At the beginnings of XX century, in France, there was a boy called Luka who wanted to fight with another boy. They were in the main square. Then an oldest woman came with her stick, slowly, looking all the children, the houses, people talking, … But she saw how Luka began to fight with the other guy. So, she ran away until she came where these two boys were and started to threaten them with her stick. Lucrecia, that is the name of the oldest woman, did not like the violence in youngest people; so she began to talk to Luka.
- You must have a good behaviour, because if not, you are going to be in prison and believe me it is horrible. You are sick all time and people hate you very much. It is not a good life. If you behave like that, fighting all time and being a bad boy, you will go there. So be careful! – said Lucrecia
- OOOOH! I am sorry about that. I do not know that life was this way in prison- answered Luka
- OH my dear! Life is hard itself. But if you have a good mind it will be easier.
- From today, I am going to be a very good boy, helping all people and studying a lot.
- That’s my boy. Well if you want, like an award, I am going to pay you an orange juice glass. Do you like it?
- Yes, I like it so much. Thank you. But you did not tell me your name.
- My name is Lucrecia, Lu for friends. HAHAHA
In this way, Lucrecia won a young friend and they talk about very different things from their times.
The advice of this story is “listen to old people, they have lived for a long time so they can help you”.
THE LAST WITCH
Legend by Patricia Méndez Muñoz 4A
Long time ago, in the beautiful English kingdom of Kharmouth, lived a young girl named Judith, who caught all kind of looks by men and women due to her big emerald eyes accompanied by a hair as dark as the night. She worked as a seamstress, but it was a sham, because Judith was the only witch who remained alive from her coven, after the slaughter of all her family at the stake twelve years ago, when she was just an innocent six year old girl.
One morning, while she was walking alone in the forest that was near the Kingdom, the young witch heard a great snort of a horse, which caught her attention. Judith was a quite curious person so she decided to take a look. She couldn’t believe what her eyes saw, it was the handsome Prince Harry, who lay fainted on the floor with a horrendous wound on his head. Judith, very worried, helped him thanks to her spells and she managed to heal and wake him up.
Prince Harry, who was stunned because of the fall and the unfortunate blow, thanked the beautiful girl and gave her a kiss in the hand, as any gentleman would have done in that situation. Judith, very blushed because of the act, looked at him with that lovely green eyes and it was at that moment, when Harry fell madly in love with the witch.
Both returned to Kharmouth mounted on the royal white horse and when going through the market, all the villagers that were present began to exclaim and applaud euphorically after the arrival of Harry together the gorgeous lady with emerald eyes. They arrived at the castle and went to meet King Edward, who was extremely ill also on his deathbed.
The King, at first, didn’t approve the sudden relationship but, after seeing the brightness of his only son’s eyes looking at Judith and talking about her, he was moved and decided to grant the marriage on the new couple.
Judith, sure of herself, told her fiancé about her past and witchcraft and he reacted in the best possible way giving her a peak in her lips, implying that he didn’t care if she was a witch, since Harry had fallen in love with how she was, not because who she was. But she, willing to give everything for the love of her life, revoked her magic in case that could cause a problem in the near future.
The days passed and the expected wedding was celebrated to commemorate the new union but sadly the king passed away that same night leaving the newlyweds in charge of the throne of the Kingdom of Kharmouth.
Judith became pregnant and after the passage of months she gave birth to a beautiful girl with big green eyes, like hers, and looking deeply in them she felt that the witch legacy hadn’t finished yet.
The Wisdom Tree
Many years ago, in March 1918, a very special boy was born. His name was Pedro and he was born in the city of Albacete, well, in a small town in Albacete to be exact. He belonged to a family of witches and wizards, but he did not know it. Albacete was a very quiet and lonely place, it was surrounded by a big forest full of trees and vegetation. Pedro was an intelligent and ambitious boy, he was small but energetic and he was running all the time.
When Pedro was about 12 years old, he went to the forest to investigate, as he usually did when he had nothing to do. However, this day was not like the others, for some unknown reason he decided to take other path different from the one he used to take. When this path ended, he caught an interesting rock that he saw on the floor. Suddenly, when he put his head up, he saw an enormous beautiful tree with a tree behind it. He went day past day to visit it and finally he discovered that this was a wisdom tree because the most he went there the wiser he became. Pedro never told the path to arrive to this tree and now that he is dead, no one knows where it is.

The missing dogs
Miguel Colino García
Instituto Julio Verne de Bargas
Long time ago, a small town existed on the way that goes from Bargas to Olías. My grandfather told me that, one night, when he was young, all the dogs in this town disappeared. It was the 6th of January of 1963. Nobody was able to give an explanation for this strange event.
Nowadays, this small town is deserted, but people still say that they can hear the howl of the disappeared dogs every 6th of January.
Last Thursday it was January the 6th. My friend Hugo and I went to that place to verify if the story was true or not. We couldn´t hear any unusual noise for hours. But at 3am we started hearing the howls. Maybe it was only our imagination, who knows. The only thing that I can be sure about is that it was terrifying.
Jose Miguel del Puerto

Pedro and Margarita, they loved each other as the most. In that moment, the pretty girl was crying because Pedro had to go to the war, as he was strong and a very good soldier. He was the best of the army.
Pedro was a simple soldier, but the first and most important captain of the army needed him and his skills for the fight against the Muslims, in Andalusia. Pedro was very disappointed with the fact of going to the war because he couldn’t see his lover crying. Before leaving Toledo, Pedro promised Margarita that he would come back and then, they would get married. And Pedro gave Margarita a ring, as a symbol of his promise.
A few days after the soldier gave the new to Margarita, the army of Toledo left the city and she went to see them. The whole city assisted to see the event. Unfortunately, the girl saw his lover leading the army, as he was the first captain! He was not a simple soldier.
During the war in Andalusia, something strange appeared many times to save Pedro’s life during the fight. It was a death hand with a ring what saved him. When Pedro was in extreme and difficult situations and when he needed help, it appeared. Then, the captain knew that the girl he loved had died because of an excess of sadness and his hand wouldn’t rest in peace until Pedro would come back and would make the promise true. Finally, thanks to the death hand´s interventions, the soldier came back, and he fulfilled the promise. The whole body of the girl could rest in peace, forever.
