THE GHOST IN THE FOREST

Many people who lived near the Theme Park are afraid to go into the forest area. there is a legend that a woman who once lived in the forest as an outlaw hundred and hundred of years ago, she still walks there as a ghost at night.

The legend says, she was a great warrior from a rich family, but the wicked king, who ruled the country, killed her family and burned her castle, that is quiteclose to the Theme Park.

Her name was Maureen. Maureen escaped being killed by running into the forest. Because of this, the king made a decree.

Many of the poor people, who knew Maureen, they liked her very much and they told her what the king was going to do. Maureen decided to fight the king. She did this by helping the poor, by robbing the rich and giving their money to the poor. Every time someone rich came through the forest, she would rob him.

Maureen was a heroine for the poor, but in the end, one of the poor betrayed her for fifty gold coins.

She was caught by the king´s soldiers and they hung in the forest by the king from one of the old oak trees. The legend says that her ghost still walks there in the night. So beware!

Yesterday Debbie had a job interview.  She went downtown to the company. The interview was for

an accounting job. Debbie graduated university 3 months ago.

Her interview was at 10:00 am. She woke up at 7:00 am and left her house before 8:00 am. She

waited for the bus, but it was late. She was very worried because she did not want to be late for

the interview. She tried to phone the company to warn them, but her phone battery was dead.

When the bus arrived, it was almost 9:00 am. Then the bus was slow because there were many

other cars. The bus finally arrived at Debbie’s stop at 9:45 am.

Debbie ran from the bus stop to the office building. When she entered she saw a sign that said the

company was on the 24th floor. The elevator ride took almost 5 minutes because many people

stopped at different floors.  

When Debbie arrived at reception, it was 9:58. She was in time!  

“I am here to see Mrs. Lewis” said Debbie.

The receptionist checked her book and replied:  

“She is not here today.  What is your name please?”

“My name is Debbie Gregson.”

“Sorry Debbie, but your appointment is tomorrow.”

Debbie checked her agenda. It was true. She was there on the wrong day!
