# did'nt get the story

P atrick never did homework. "Too boring," he said. He played baseball and basketball and Nintendo instead. His teachers told him, "Patrick! Do your homework or you won 't learn a thing." And it 's true, sometimes he did feel like a ding-a-ling.

But what could he do? He hated homework.

Then on St. Patrick 's Day his cat was playing with a little doll and he grabbed it away. To his surprise it wasn 't a doll at all, but a man of the tiniest size. He had a little wool shirt with old fashioned britches and a high tall hat much like a witch 's. He yelled, "Save me! Don 't give me back to that cat. I 'll grant you a wish, I promise you that."

Patrick couldn 't believe how lucky he was! Here was the answer to all of his problems. So he said, "Only if you do all my homework 'til the end of the semester, that 's 35 days. If you do a good enough job, I could even get A 's."

The little man 's face wrinkled like a dishcloth thrown in the hamper. He kicked his legs and doubled his fists and he grimaced and scowled and pursed his lips, "Oh, am I cursed! But I 'll do it."

And true to his word, that little elf began to do Patrick 's homework. Except there was one glitch. The elf didn 't always know what to do and he needed help. "Help me! Help me!" he 'd say. And Patrick would have to help -- in whatever way.

"I don 't know this word," the elf squeeked while reading Patrick 's homework. "Get me a dictionary. No, what 's even better. Look up the word and sound it out by each letter."

When it came to math, Patrick was out of luck. "What are times tables?" the elf shrieked. "We elves never need that. And addition and subtraction and division and fractions? Here, sit down beside me, you simply must guide me."

Elves know nothing of human history, to them it 's a mystery. So the little elf, already a shouter, just got louder "Go to the library, I need books. More and more books. And you can help me read them too."

As a matter of fact every day in every way that little elf was a nag! Patrick was working harder than ever and was it a drag! He was staying up nights, had never felt so weary, was going to school with his eyes puffed and bleary.

Finally the last day of school arrived and the elf was free to go. As for homework, there was no more, so he quietly and slyly slipped out the back door.

Patrick got his A 's; his classmates were amazed; his teachers smiled and were full of praise. And his parents? They wondered what had happened to Patrick. He was now the model kid. Cleaned his room, did his chores, was cheerful, never rude, like he had developed a whole new attitude.

You see, in the end Patrick still thought he 'd made that tiny man do all his homework. But I 'll share a secret, just between you and me. It wasn 't the elf; Patrick had done it himself!..

Once , there was a boy named Patrick . He found his homework boring . He played baseball or basketball or video games instead .His teachers always scolded him to do his homework .

One day he saw that his cat was playing with a doll and he grabbed it away . When he looked carefully at the doll he found that it was an elf .The elf said to him to never give him to the cat , in return he will grant him a wish . Patrick said that his wish was that the elf should do all his homework till the semester ends .The elf mutered to himself that he has been cursed but he has no other choice . He began to do Patrick 's homework . The elf always shouted i do't know this or that word. Give me a dictionary or give me that book he would say . When the elf started doing maths he shouted that what are time tables ? What is substraction and fractions ? WHat is human history we dont know anything about that . I need books.Patrick even woke up at nights to help the elf to his homework .

After when he went school he got A grade for his work . He developed a totaly new altitude .
