The boy who cried wolf by Jorja

This story is about a boy called Sam, some sheep, some villagers and [maybe] a wolf.

A long time ago a little boy called Sam lived in a tiny village in the mountains. Every day he took the sheep from the village up the hill to a grassy meadow. Here we are again said Sam,  he watched them from morning to evening. La la la la then he took them home again this way, mutton brains every day was the same. Same old mountains, same old trees Sam was lonely and he was so bored all his friends were down in the village. He tried talking to the sheep and how are you today said Sam? Baa. but they didn’t have much to say. ” Nobody ever comes up here,” moaned Sam. ”Nothing ever happends”, But one day,he had an idea. I could make something happen. He ran down the hill to the village Help, Help! What’s the matter? ”A wolf! he shouted.  ”A wolf has come out of the forest!” Everyone ran up the hill with him. Hurry! My sheep! Puffing and panting, they reached the meadow. Of course, there was no wolf the sheep were quietly eating their grass. All that way, for nothing. said one of the villagers. The villagers were frustrated, But Sam just laughed that was funny. No it wasn’t. A few days later, Sam was bored again. He ran down the hill to the village. Help, Help! What’s the matter now? ”A wolf!” he shouted. ”A wolf has come out of the forest!” Some people didn’t believe him. We’ d better make sure. Oh yes? but most ran up the hill to see. Puffing and panting, they reached the meadow. Of course, there was no wolf. The sheep were quietly eating their grass. Everyone was really angry, but sam just laughed. What are you grinning at? A week later, Sam was bored again.  He ran down the hill to the village. Help, Help! There is really a wolf! But most people didn’t believe him but this time only a few ran up the hill. Puffing and panting they reached the meadow. Of course there was no wolf the sheep were quietly eating their grass. Now everyone was furious. But Sam laughed and laughed. You think you’re so clever. A few days later, a wolf… DID come out of the forest. Sam was terrified. He ran down to the village as fast as he could. Help, please help! Nobody believed him. Do you think we’re stupid? I promise you, there’s a wolf! Sam begged them to come with him. You have to help me, but this time they just laughed at him. In the end Sam had to go back up the hill all alone. The wolf had killed some of the sheep. The rest had run away. Sam stayed in the meadow until it was dark. Finally, the villagers came to find him. Our sheep No! I told you.  ”Why didn’t you believe me?” he asked. ”You always told lies before,” they said I’m sorry ”I’ve leant my lesson. Never again,” said Sam.
