On the other side of our Human World, there was a Monster World.
There was a young monster named Davi. Davi was a lonely boy. He had seven brothers, but he always stayed home alone.
Davi cried everyday. He wanted to make friends.
Davi went to talk to his grandfather, who was the guard of the gate which connects Human World and Monster World.
Davi asked his grandfather, "I want to go to Human World. I don't have any friends here. Maybe I can make friends over there."
Grandfather said "No, it's too dangerous. No one in Human World likes Monsters. You won't make any friends there."
But Davi went "Nobody in Monster World likes me anyway. I want to at least try making friends in Human World!"
Grandfather decided to allow Davi three days in Human World, and gave him three gold coins, and told him "These coins may help you when you are in trouble."
Davi thanked his grandfather, and went through the gate.
Davi walked through the dark...
Davi landed on the street. He was amazed at the sun, the sky, the tall trees, and the houses!
Davi saw a college dormitory in which college girls were petting a cat.
Davi sneaked into the dormitory and talked to the cat. "Mr!" said Davi. "How can I make friends with humans?"
" Meow! " answered Mr. Cat. "I am not going to tell you because you are a Monster. We don't like monsters. But I see you have three gold coins in your pocket.
If you give me one coin, I'll answer your question."
Davi gave him one gold coin. Then Mr. Cat went "Ok! All I do is mew and purr at people's feet."
Davi said "Thank you, Mr. Cat!"
Davi approached the college girls, who were busy chattering with each other, and purred and mewed at their feet. The college girls turned around, and...
"AAARRRGGGHHH!!! Monster!!!" The college girls screamed in horror, and ran out of the building!
Davi was left alone in the dormitory. He walked out on the street, and he cried and cried and cried all night long.
On the second day, Davi saw two young boys playing with a dog in a house.
Davi sneaked into the house, and talked to the Dog. "Mr!" said Davi. "How can I make friends with Humans?"
" Arf!" answers Mr. Dog. "I am not going to tell you because you are a monster. We don't like monsters. But I see you have two gold coins in your pocket.
If you give me one coin, I'll be happy to answer your question."
So Davi gave him one coin. Then Mr. Dog went "Okay! All I do is bow-wow, and lick people's faces." "Thank you, Mr. Dog!" said Davi.
Davi approached the two young boys, and suddenly licked their faces and BOW-WOWED!!
"AAARRRGGGHHH!!! MONSTER!!" cried the two young boys. They screamed in horror and ran out of the building!
Davi was left alone in the house. He walked out on the street, and he cried and cried and cried all night long.
On the third day, Davi saw a huge house in which an old blind lady was feeding a small bird in a cage.
Davi sneaked into the house, and talked to the bird. "Mrs!" said Davi. "How can I make friends with humans?"
"Chirp!" answered Mrs. Bird. "I am not going to tell you because you are a Monster. We don't like Monsters. But I see you have one gold coin in your pocket.
If you give me the coin, I'll be happy to answer your question."
So Davi gave her his last gold coin. Then Mrs. Bird says "Okay! All I do is chirp and sing a song!"
Davi started singing a song. Then...
"Where does this come from?" the old blind lady approached Davi. Davi was so happy. "This is the most beautiful song I have ever heard,"said Old Blind Lady.
Then she touched Davi's face. "Who are you? What is this? Could this be a... AAARRRGGGHHH!!! Monster!!!!" The Old Blind Lady screamed in horror, and fainted dead!
Davi was left alone once again. He walked out on the street, and he cried and cried and cried all night long.
Davi went back to the gate. He was very sad. The trees, the sun, the sky didn't amaze Davi anymore.
Davi met his grandfather at the gate. Grandfather went "Why are you crying?" Then Davi answered "I tried really hard to make friends with humans, and asked Mr. Cat, Mr. Dog and Mrs.
Bird for advise, and I followed their good advice, but nobody liked
me. Nobody cared about me anywhere. I'll be alone for the rest of my life. Nobody likes me!"
Then grandfather answered "It takes so much courage just to go to Human World. And you were on your own Davi. You are the most courageous Monster I have ever seen.
Everytime you cried, you learned to be stronger. You don't need anyone else."
Davi listened to his grandfather. "Now go home, Davi," said grandfather.
Davi walked back to his house, and opened the door, then...
Davi's seven brothers rushed to him, cheering "We've heard you were in Human World by yourself?!" "I wish I can be like you!" "You are so brave!"
Davi finally smiled. From that day on, Davi played with his brothers everyday, and lived happily ever after.
