The Amulet

By Cristina Berci, 11 years

Many, many years ago, there was a beautiful princess. She loved a rafter.
The emperor wanted to marry her to a prince., not with a rafter. The emperor told the prince and the rafter: ”You must cross through water and fire.”
The princess gave the rafter her enchanted ring. So, the rafter could cross the water and fire but the prince couldn’t.
There were two threads bound to this enchanted ring: a white and a red one. The rafter took the threads and put them on the princess’s chest with a flower, for their marriage. The got married and became husband and wife on the 1st of March. They called the flower and the threads ‘amulet’.
From that day boys give girls amulets on the 1st of March.
