Once upon a time in the land of Grave, there lived Amma and Link happily ever after. Is that not how the story always goes?!? On the night before High Holidays, Amma was sleeping peacefully when all of a sudden there was a happening. She jumped out of bed to awaken Link.

As both stood there, looking at the gate in their front room, they felt crazy. How could it be? Was it true? To be face to face with a gate was not possible. What were they to do?

With quick thinking, Amma and Link exchanged a knowing glance and screamed.

From there, we may never know what happened in this story. It could be small. Or, it could be good. It truly is a mystery! However what we do know is this . . . . The pirate who had stolen her heart

The End
