"Come on, Amelia!" Peter shouted. "We're going to explore the forest today." There (6) plenty of things to discover in the vast woodland, so Amelia eagerly joined them.

Deeper into the woods, there (11) ancient ruins of a once-great castle. There (12) a legend that said the castle had once housed a princess with magical powers. Amelia excitedly shared the tale with her friends, and they decided to investigate further.

Upon opening the door, there (16) an incredible garden filled with flowers that shone like gemstones. There were vines covered in giant strawberries, and there (17) a small pond filled with golden fish. The children gasped in awe, as they knew they (18) standing in the remains of the princess's magical garden.
In the center of the garden, there (19) a fountain carved with strange symbols. There (20) whispers of the magic still lingering in the air, and the children felt drawn to the water. As they each dipped their hands into the fountain, there (21) shimmers of light that danced across their fingers.
