Historia corta en inglés
One day, a little girl named Emma was walking to the park when she saw something glittering in the grass. She bent down to take a closer look and saw a beautiful, golden key.
Emma couldn’t believe her luck. She had always wanted to find a treasure, and now she had found a key that might lead her to one. She picked up the key and ran to the park as fast as she could.
When she got there, she saw a big, old tree with a hole in its trunk. Emma knew this was the place she had been looking for. She stuck the key in the hole and turned it, and to her surprise, the trunk opened, revealing a secret tunnel.
Emma was so excited that she ran inside without hesitation. She followed the tunnel until she came to a room filled with treasure. There were piles of gold coins, sparkling jewels, and all sorts of other precious things.
Emma couldn’t believe her eyes. She had found the treasure of a lifetime. She gathered as much as she could carry and ran back to the tunnel, but as she was leaving, she heard a strange noise.
It was the sound of the tree trunk closing. Emma realized that she was trapped. She tried to run back, but it was too late. The trunk was sealed shut.
Emma was scared, but she knew she had to find a way out. She looked around and saw a small window high up on the wall. She climbed up and squeezed through it, just in time to see the sun setting.
She ran home as fast as she could, her heart full of joy and her pockets full of treasure. She knew she would always remember her amazing adventure in the park.
