  11. 11. Story Spine Once upon a time there was a little girl named Dorothy who was carried by tornado to the magical land of Oz. Every day, she journeyed toward the Emerald City in order to ask the Great and Powerful Wizard of Oz to help her get home. But one day, she got to Oz and she met the Wizard. Because of that, the Wizard told Dorothy that he would only help her get home if she killed the Wicked Witch of the West. Because of that, Dorothy encountered many dangers and was finally successful in destroying the witch. Because of that, the Wizard agreed to take Dorothy home in his hot-air balloon. Until finally, on the day of their departure, Dorothy ran after her dog, Toto, and missed the balloon. And ever since then, Dorothy learned that she always had the power to get home on her own, which she did.
