Once upon a time there was a 7-year-old girl named Paula who lived in a boarding school, she had her friends and her brother there but she was very curious and always wanted to get out of there to investigate. One day she proposed it to her best friend Evelyn, but she was afraid she said no, so she decided to run away alone. When passed the barriers of the boarding school she got lost, so suddenly she was very scared and alone but then, a big ugly and dirty gnome came and helped her. At first she was scared because she was huge but later they became friends with her, then he helped her find her way back to boarding school. From that day on, Paula went out every afternoon to go with the gnome since they became very close friends.
