Akiro by Juan Philip

Akiro Story by Philip and Fabiola

Akiro was a man, but he was a different man. Somebody asked, "Why are you different?" He was very unlucky…. so he didn't have a girlfriend, or work and money!"
One day he decided to go around the world on foot to find his luck.
During the trip he met a lot of people and he asked them for money , but they answered, " No if you want money, go to work!" He was so unlucky and no one wanted to hire him.
Everytime he looked for a girl they did not want to have anything to do with him as he didn't take care of himself and he was dirty and had a beard.
So then after a few days he was so tired but he walked and walked thinking he would find luck. Suddenly there appeared an ugly and bad creature … it was the devil. The devil asked the man: " What are you finding ,poor man?
The man said," I'm finding my luck, and I don't know where I lost it."
The devil replied, " It's very easy, if you want back your luck, you need to make an agreement with me..I give you luck and you give me your soul? He thought and thought for 3 days…… should I make the agreement or not?
But something happened during this time.He met a rich girl and she fell in love with him and he thought " I am not unlucky afterall." He refused the agreement with the devil and married the rich girl and so he didn't need a job since she was rich.Akiro had never lost his luck and he thought ," Really in every man there are unlucky and lucky days."
