Hello everyone! I got something special for you today. A story! Something I’ve been keeping all to myself for some time, but now I decided to share with you. 🙂
I had often thought up interesting short stories and wanted to make a collection at of them. Looks like my sleepless (but productive) nights will actually pay off. So, let’s get started!
The Thief & The Writer
Once upon a time, before all the stories and fairy tales, there was a writer. He always wrote in a leather notebook all kinds of stories and legends that popped into his head.

The next morning, the young man and the thief met just outside the village. Before the sneaky robber even had time to utter a word the writer handed the notebook to him and left without any explanation. Confused, but excited for the gift, the thief rummaged through the older stories. Page after page, the impatient robber searched for the tale written specifically for him.
Getting closer to the end of the written pages, the man’s eyes fell upon the title “Book thief”. It seemed appropriate. Continuing to read, he noticed that there were only a few lines: “Once upon a time, a famous outlaw, who lived through incredible adventures and stole from kings and queens alike, stumbled upon a mysterious notebook filled with interesting stories. Wanting to contribute to the collection, the thief started writing the incredible story of his life, starting with … “
The rest was blank.
