How the naughty goblin invented Valentine’s Day

Once upon a time, in a quiet little town nestled in the heart of a dense forest, there was a mischievous goblin named Gobby. Gobby was a tiny creature with a big personality and an even bigger appetite for causing trouble. Gobby loved nothing more than causing chaos and wreaking havoc among the townspeople. He would steal their crops, pick their flowers, tease their dogs and cats, and leave their houses dirty.

One day, Gobby decided to sneak out of the forest and into the village to see what kind of mischief he could cause. As he made his way through the streets, he came across a baker’s shop and couldn’t resist the smell of freshly baked bread. He snuck inside and proceeded to devour an entire tray of loaves, leaving crumbs and flour everywhere.

Next, Gobby came across a tailor’s shop and decided to try on some clothes. He squeezed into a suit that was way too small for him and tore it to shreds. The tailor was furious and chased Gobby out of the shop.

As Gobby ran through the village, he caused chaos wherever he went. He knocked over fruit stands, broke windows, and even stole a chicken from a farmer. The villagers were fed up with Gobby’s antics. The townspeople feared and despised Gobby, but they couldn’t seem to get rid of him.

One day, while Gobby was out on a walk, he met a lovely goblin lady named Gabby. He was immediately smitten with her beauty and grace.

Gobby approached Gabby and said, “Hello, my lady. My name is Gobby. May I have the pleasure of knowing yours?”

Gabby replied, “I am Gabby, and I must say, I do not approve of your naughty behavior. You should be ashamed of yourself. Why do you have to be so naughty all the time?” Gabby asked. “Can’t you see how much trouble you’re causing for these poor people?”

Gobby tried to impress her with his mischievous antics, but Gabby was not amused. Gobby hung his head in shame. “I’m sorry. I just don’t know how to be anything else.”

Gobby’s heart sank as he realized that his love for causing trouble had caused him to lose the chance at winning Gabby’s heart. He knew he had to change his ways if he wanted to impress her.

Determined to show Gabby how special she was to him, he decided that instead of causing trouble in the town he would do something nice.

So Gobby woke up extra early on February 15th. He baked for hours and then snuck into the townspeople’s houses and left heart-shaped chocolates and candies as a surprise. He had also baked treats for the dogs and cats and left them in their baskets. Then Gobby set out to collect the most beautiful flowers he could find. He searched through the forest and finally found a patch of wildflowers. He picked them carefully and arranged them into a bouquet and he left one on every doorstep. He blew up hundreds of pink and red balloons hanging them all around the town.

When the townspeople woke up that morning, they were pleasantly surprised! They couldn’t believe their eyes. They told Gabby that they were very impressed with Gobby’s change of heart.

Gabby was touched by Gobby’s efforts to change and soon began to see the good in him. So Gabby decided to go on a date with him. Their date went well and she started to develop feelings for him. They began to spend more and more time together. Gobby was overjoyed, and he knew that Gabby was the one for him. He proposed to her, and she said yes.

They ended up getting married and to celebrate their love, every year on February 15th, Gobby and Gabby would decorate the town and hand out small presents and cards to everyone. The townspeople were no longer afraid of Gobby, and they all lived happily ever after.

Gobby was overjoyed that he finally found someone who accepts him for who he is, and Gabby was happy that she found a goblin who is willing to change for the better. The two of them were contented and happy, their love for each other grew stronger every day. And the little town had a new tradition on February 14th, which they called Valentine’s Day!
