Chloanthite was a small village in the northern boundaries of the kingdom. It was an idyllic place with lush green forests, babbling brooks and meadows full of wildflowers. The villagers were friendly and welcoming, eager to share stories of the nearby mountains and the creatures that lived there.
Chloanthite was home to the Hooligans, a small band of clever, mischievous kids. Every day they would explore the forests and play all sorts of games. But their favorite activity was visiting the nearby crypt.
Every day after school, the Hooligans would sprint to the crypt. It was an ancient ruin, full of secrets and mysteries. The kids loved to explore the ruins, as they never knew what could be found inside.
One afternoon, the group of kids got quite a surprise. They stumbled upon an intricate altar, adorned with strange symbols. In the center was a large, shining gem, a chloanthite. The kids were mesmerized by the beautify of the gem, and everyone wanted to take it home.
But the group’s leader, a wise and kind boy by the name of Peter, knew better. He warned them that the stone was too magical and powerful to take home. He suggested they leave it where it was and not tell anyone of their discovery.
The other kids agreed, and they left the altar as it was and left the crypt. But as time passed, their curiosity got the better of them, and they began to discuss taking the stone and using its power.
Peter knew this was wrong and he urged his friends to leave the stone where it was. But, his warnings fell on deaf ears and eventually, the kids decided to take the gem and split it between them.
The kids took the gem and each of them kept a piece. They had no idea what the gem was capable of, or the power it held. Little did they know, the gem could grant a person anything they desired.
The kids were ecstatic, but as the days went on, each of them began to regret their decision. The power of the stone was too great, and it brought out the worst in everyone. Greed, envy, and anger consumed all of the Hooligans.
Realizing what they had done, the kids decided to put the stones back where they found it. When they returned to the crypt, they were surprised to find that the altar was gone.
But Peter knew what they had to do and he suggested that each of them keep the piece of the gem and use its power to help others instead of themselves. The kids agreed, and from that day forward, each of them used the power of the gem to help those in need.
The Hooligans soon learned the power of selflessness, and the power of friendship. They understood that it was more important to help each other than to seek personal gain.
Moral: Friendship and selflessness are more powerful than greed or envy.
