Once upon a time in a bright and twinkly forest, there was a little bear named Ben. Ben loved nothing more than to play among the trees and rivers, but he always wondered what lay beyond the old wooden gate at the edge of the forest.
One sunny morning, Ben found the gate slightly open. Filled with excitement and curiosity, he pushed it with his little paw and stepped into a part of the forest he had never seen. Everything was glowing with magic!
In this new part of the forest, the flowers sang in the wind, and the trees whispered secrets. A happy butterfly named Flit flew down and landed on Ben's nose, tickling him until he giggled.
Flit the butterfly twirled into the air and said, 'Follow me, Ben! I want to show you something amazing!' Ben padded softly behind, as they went deeper into the enchanted woods.
After a while, they came upon a crystal clear pond. 'This is the Pond of Wishes,' Flit explained. 'If you make a wish, it just might come true!' Ben closed his eyes and made a wish for a new friend.
As Ben opened his eyes, he heard a soft voice. 'Did someone wish for a friend?' Turning around, Ben saw a small dragon with scales shining like jewels. 'I'm Dazzle, let's be friends!' said the dragon with a smile.
Ben and Dazzle played until the stars came out, sharing stories and laughs. As the moon climbed high, Ben realized it was time to go home. Waving goodbye to his new friends, he promised to return to the magical forest soon.
