(Title)........................................................................................................................................................


The creator of everything had planted a small tree in a wonderful garden with flowers different in colour, scent and form, , deciding that it would grow after a long time but only if it would be cured and watered with love from "special" children.

That tree would have had many branches and on everyone of it, in place of the flowers or fruits, would grow some hearts: hearts of italian, irish, portuguese, norwegian and turkish children.


One day....

One day as the children were looking after the tree the creator of everything came to the garden. The Italian and Norwegian children were watering the tree and the Turkish and Portuguese children were pruning it. The creator of everything was pleased to see such love for his tree. He wondered where the Irish children were. He found them deep in thought. He noticed they were watching a group of children playing outside the fence. The creator of everything walked over and invited them in. They were Estonian children and they helped look after the tree. And now the circle of friends was complete with Norwegian, Irish, Italian, Portuguese, Turkish and Estonian children all working together.

But

After a few days they weren’t so happy. All of the children wanted to do everything so they would be the best in the creator’s eye. Often the children started arguing about their job. Who must watering the tree, who must dig over, who must prune the tree.At last they were fighting about everything.
And one day the hearts started to fall down. The children noticed it and told it to the creator of everything. They all were worried about the tree. They wanted to know why there aren’t much hearts anymore. The creature of everything was worried too. He thought that maybe the tree must to do that.
But next day the tree was smaller than yesterday and it had only three hearts left. The creator of everything was disappointed. He was really angry. The children said that they gave their best to look after the tree.

At the same night

At the same night after children fell asleep,the creator of everything decided to observe them next day to see what’s happening.He did it whole next day as he couldn’t believe what he saw.There was a big chaos,some of children were again watering the tree after others already did it and they were doing same thing for pruning too.
At the end of the day,the tree was exhausted by being watered and pruned six times in a day,more she was very upset with children’s argument so she was getting smaller and loosing the hearts on her branches.There was a single heart left.She was weeping as the creator of everything could hear her only.He had realized everything.
