I wrote this long ago it needs illistration I have tried to get it published but no luck what do you think. I was trying to teacher children even if you are teased by some one if they need your help you should not think of what they have did but help them anyhow. Rhayden The Big Nose Once upon a time in a town called breezy there lived a man named Mr. Curio. He was a very wealthy man and had many rings on his fingers that were full of rubies, emeralds and diamonds. Mr. Curio also walked with a walking stick that had a very large gem of blue topaz. His clothes were of the finest cloths and his hair was always the latest fashion, But Mr. Curio wasn't happy. For on his face is a big huge long nose. Day after dreary day he would go home to a very large house, but there was no one there to greet him. He had a very large heart but no one knew this since they all were thinking of new ways to tease him about his nose. One day as he walked down Woozer Street, he heard the jeers from the towns people around him. One fellow on the fire escape yelled "Look!, Here comes ski slope nose!" Another fellow saw him from across the street on the street corner and said "All the birds must love you...since you give them something to perch on." Then he heard a lady say "What kind if creature is he?" And yet another yell back" He must be from the swordfish family, if you don't believe me look at his snout!" If this wasn't bad enough, that the towns people taunted him so. A child no more then 4 exclaimed "Mommy! Look at his nose, it is sooooooooooooo BIG!" The woman didn't even try to hush the innocent child. But then Mr. Curio felt a awful thing about to happen, he was going to sneeze IN PUBLIC! He sneezed once and a car tumbled end over end down the street. He sneezed again and a big tree went up in the air and came down in a near by field, luckily no one was in it. He sneezed a third and final time and blew Miss Mop down the street causing her quite a embarrassment for as she tumbled her dress and petticoat flew up over her head and this exposed her bloomers for all to see! Mr. Curio wiped his nose with a handkerchief he had, but as he did so he over heard Miss Magpie the biggest gossip in the town tell Miss Peach " I would not like him to sneeze near my house for fear he would blow it into the next county!" Mr. Curio was sad indeed and walked slowly sadly back home, he could hear the crowd still laughing and yelling horrible awful things as he walked away. As he got home, he stood in the entryway of his house and glared into the mirror wishing he had a wife to come home to. As he looked he thought to himself " How could a lady love a ugly, gruesome, unhandsome, grotesque, gargoyle like myself!? I repel all with my ghastliness!" thinking this he could only sigh. One night as he looked up into the sky and saw the heavens before him, he saw a lone star. One he had never noticed before. He thought it's probably stupid but I'll give it a try, Mr. Curio spoke aloud " Star light star so bright, the newest star I see tonight, I wish a wish that will come with a angel in flight" His voice began to yell loudly "OH GOD IN HEAVEN ABOVE, GRANT ME A SMALL NOSE TONIGHT!!!!! PLEEEEEEEASSSSSE!!!" THEN... Mr Curio noticed a odd thing, the star seemed to move!? It went small then large then small then large then it started to spin then it looked as if it was getting closer, it was! Then it was right at his feet. What an odd star he thought but then it grew larger and larger and the form seemed to changed and all of a sudden there was a beautiful angel with white skin and long blonde hair and a flowing glittering white gown" she is the most beautiful entity I have ever seen." He thought to himself. She spoke in a very soft voice" My name is Annabel. I heard your wish. OF all the wishes I hear, yours was the most sincere" she paused and put one finger in her ear and wiggled it as she did her ear popped then she rotated her jaw, then she smiled politely and she continued "And might I say the most loud, I will grant this wish but you may find you do not really want it after all..I will go back to Heaven and listen in case you change your mind". Within a blink of an eye Mr. Curio felt a warm sensation, then a tingling, it felt almost like electricity and with that * POOF * she was gone. He hardly could wait to visit the mirror in the entryway. He ran as fast as he could to gaze in the mirror and he saw a most beautiful sight, a marvelous sight, There.. where his long so big of nose use to be was a small nose that fit his face perfectly. He couldn't wait till morning. He wanted to see if anyone would recognize him. He lay down and tried to sleep but his mind kept him awake "I bet they will all be so surprised "he thought. As he nearly dozed something came to his attention "What is that smell?" He thought "It smells just .....like.......SMOKE!!!" He leaped from his bed and put on some clothes and away he went racing out he front door. He could see the flicker of the fire and ran in it's direction, two streets down on the left Salvo Drive. He ran fast to the house where the flicker grew larger and as he got there he saw the whole house engulfed in fire, but then he saw a horrible sight, out of the top window he saw Miss Magpie and Miss Peach, they were leaning out the window, flames were about to get to them, they yelled "HELP! HELP! SOMEONE SAVE US! WILL SOMEONE CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!" A crowd had gathered around the house but everyone knew all would be lost before the fire department would be able to get there. He remembered these two women from earlier in the in the day and how they talked about him but he concerned himself not. He knew what he had to do, He hesitated not, for he knew what was the right thing to do. He got down on his knees and put his hands together as to pray. He yelled to angel Annabel in Heaven, with the loudness of a cannon "OH, Annabel, you were right, Oh, please give me my big nose I had before, I beg you! There are lives at stake!!!" Annabel knew this would come to pass, because angels from Heaven know the future. As before in a blink of an eye. Mr. Curio's old big nose was back, but the smell of smoke made him S....SN....SNEE....SNEEZE! Aacchoooooeeee! As he sneezed he faced Miss Peach's home and blew the fire completely out! The Crowd said "Gazootight" in unison and Mr. Curio said mildly " Pardon me" as he wiped his old nose. Everyone laughed even Mr. Curio, but this time they were laughing with him not at him. Miss Magpie said I am so sorry for what I said about you earlier today. Can you find it in your heart to forgive a old foolish woman? Mr. Curio said "But of course" We all make mistakes and smiled at her. Miss Peach said "I don't what would of happened to us if you didn't have that wonderful nose of yours, I owe my life to you" Now the crowd yelled praises "How wonderful, how beautious, what a great man!" Miss peach then asked Mr. Curio " Would you please come for tea and crumpets tomorrow if you please?" Mr.Curio replied "I would love to" He said to the crowd "I often wondered why someone such as I was put on this Earth, I didn't seem to serve any purpose, but I understand why now." DO YOU?
