This story happened many, many centuries ago in one small city. Only a few families lived in this city, so it looked more like a village than a city. Of course, there was no army in that city, and no one could protect the inhabitants from enemies.

And then one day several of the oldest and wisest people decided to create a person who would guard their peace. From clay, they fashioned a huge giant and gave him the name Golem, which means “clay”. In the ancient book, the sages found spells to revive the Golem. In the dark night, taking torches with them, they gathered around the clay man and began to pronounce magic words. Gradually, the giant began to come to life. When the work was finished, the sages discovered that they forgot to cast one spell - one that would teach the Golem to speak. But, thinking, they decided that it’s even better. Why should he talk if he must defend the city from enemies? Every day, the inhabitants of the city gave the Golem different tasks. He was so huge and strong that he could do the hard work that a few people could not handle. But once a holiday happened, and people forgot to give the Golem a task. They did not know that the giant should not be left idle - in ancient books there was not a word about it. All day the Golem walked around the city and destroyed everything around. He broke houses, turned carts and attacked everyone he saw. No one could stop the raging giant. And only when the chief of the wise men who created it ordered the Golem to stop, did he stop crushing and froze, as if rooted to the spot. Since then, residents have never forgotten to give Golem many tasks. And he coped with them perfectly and defended the city from all enemies!



Molly paced the school hallway imposingly. She was like a real high school student, skipping math class (in fact, Molly was kicked out of class for bad behavior, but she preferred to think she was skipping). Suddenly a sob was heard from the side of the closet. Molly carefully opened the door and saw her classmate Tonti Sinichkin. Tonty sat on the floor with his arms around his knees and sobbed.
- Sinichkin, you were kicked out too ... Are you skipping classes too? Molly asked. - And what are you whining? Are you afraid your parents will scold you?
“No-no,” Sinichkin whined more than ever. - Hoo-oo-already ...
- What?! Have your parents been summoned to the director? - scared Molly
- No-no ... I ... I ... fell in love! - said Sinichkin and blushed - I have been in love for a long time, but I just can't admit my feelings. Molly breathed a sigh of relief.
- Is this really such a problem! Come on, move over. Now I will tell you how to confess your love! Tonty explained this to me - after I threw a spider into his soup out of great love. Anyway, listen, - announced Molly and sat down next to Sinichkin.
- First, love must be confessed in a special place. To do this, you need to choose a beautiful and romantic place. For example, a snowy park, a river bank or a pastry shop! Molly smiled wistfully at the thought of the candy. - You invite her to the pastry shop and say: "Lucy, I love you!"
- How do you know about Lucy ?! - Sinichkin exclaimed and blushed even more.
“Everyone knows, calm down,” Molly waved her hand. - So here. You can also declare your love for the girl for the whole school - on the radio or in the wall newspaper. For those who are particularly shy, there are other ways. For example, you can perform a feat, say, defeat a dragon or wash all the floors in her apartment. And be sure to devote this feat to her! You can also compose poetry or a song ...
Although you only play drums? Well, then write a confession with crayons under her window or trample words of love in the snow. Just don’t forget to subscribe!
You can give her flowers with a postcard, write a confession in a postcard ... By the way! Valentine's Day is coming soon! There is nothing to think about. Send her a valentine, attach a chocolate bar, and that's it.
Then the bell rang from the lesson.
“It's time for us to go,” Sinichkin sighed. - Thanks for the advice. Only ... it's a secret. Don't tell anyone, okay?
- The grave! Molly promised and crossed her fingers.



- How to do everything? - thought Petya. - And they asked so many lessons, and they show an interesting film on TV, and the next level of a computer game must be passed ... Now I would have had not one head, but three!

Suddenly a hissing came from behind him, and smoke came from somewhere. Petya was afraid that a fire had begun. But then he saw a huge three-headed monster and ... scared even more!

- Do you want to have three heads? - the monster growled!

- It seems to me that it will be easier,- muttered Petya,

- So you think I have a very easy life, Zmey Gorynycha?

- Do you want to be in my place? Before Petya could answer, he found himself in the Far Far Away kingdom. And instead of one head, he had three!

- Wow! - Petya was delighted and began to turn his heads in all directions. Suddenly he heard someone screaming:

- Aah! Dragon! Help! - several girls who have just walked calmly along the path scattered in different directions.

- What are they? - Petya was surprised. Next appeared again Zmey Gorynych.

-They decided that you were me.- And they are afraid of me, because I steal young girls. You see, it’s very boring for one, albeit with three heads! So I kidnap someone from time to time. To have someone to talk to.

- Aha! So I was looking for you! - the hero rushed directly to Petya. He was dressed in chain mail and was holding a huge sword.

- Oh, I forgot to warn you,- whispered Petya in Gorynych’s ear, -he is hunting for mine ... that is, your heads.- He dreams of chopping them off! - You know? - said Petya. - deal with your heads yourself. And bring me back! It’s very good for me with one head! I already have time to do everything. And Petya was at home again.

Here is such a story about the Zmey Gorynych.
