A Golden Story
There once was an element named gold. He was the brightest, shiniest, and riches element on the periodic table. But one day his enemy Silver, wanted to be more vauable than him. So he heated his house to 19,47 degrees Fahrenheit. And gold began to melt. But silver forgot that he melted faster than gold. Silver melted before gold and he became a liquid. THE END.
