Falkor from Neverend story putting children clothes in the laundry machine
Falkor had a lot of jobs.
He was the guardian of the Ivory Tower, the protector of the Childlike Empress, and a loyal friend to Atreyu and Bastian.
But his favorite job was doing laundry.
Every morning, he would fly through the magical realms, collecting soiled children’s clothes from all the different kingdoms.
He would bring them back to the Ivory Tower, sort them by color and fabric, and then put them in the laundry machine.
He loved watching the clothes spin around and around in the soapy water, getting clean and fresh once more.
And he loved folding them neatly into piles when they were done.
It was a simple job, but it made him happy.
One day, as he was flying through the Enchanted Forest on his way to collect some clothes from a group of wood nymphs, he heard a soft voice calling his name.
He looked down and saw Elara Thistlewood standing in a clearing below him.
“Hello, Elara,” he said, circling down to land in front of her.
“What are you doing here?”
“I was just out for a walk,” she replied, giving him a warm smile.
“What about you?
What are you up to?”
“I’m on my way to collect some clothes from the wood nymphs,” he said, his long white ears twitching with excitement.
“It’s laundry day!”
Elara laughed and shook her head.
“I should have known.
You do love your laundry.”
Falkor grinned at her and wagged his tail.
“Who doesn’t love clean clothes?”
he asked, his large pink tongue lolling out the side of his mouth.
“Besides, it gives me a chance to see all my friends and make sure they’re doing well.”
Elara nodded in agreement.
“Very true,” she said.
“And it’s such a beautiful day for flying.”
The sun was shining brightly, and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.
The birds were singing, and the flowers were blooming.
It was true that Falkor was an important and powerful creature in Fantasia.
But unlike other beings of his stature, he was also approachable and friendly, always willing to help those in need.
He was beloved by all the children and adults of Fantasia, who often called on him for assistance with various tasks and problems.
And although he was aware of how much he was respected and adored, he never let it go to his head.
To him, doing laundry was just as important as any of his other duties – maybe even more so.
Because while he had many important roles, and while he had done many great things throughout his life, he knew that it was the simple things that made life truly magical – like clean clothes and warm smiles from friends.
As he flew through the Enchanted Forest, he thought about all the adventures he had been on, all the places he had seen, and all the people he had met.
He thought about Atreyu and Bastian, and all the times they had come to him for help.
He thought about the Childlike Empress, and how he had sworn to protect her with his life.
And he thought about all the children of Fantasia, who looked up to him with wonder and admiration and who knew that he would always be there for them, no matter what.
And as he thought about all these things, he couldn’t help but feel a sense of peace and contentment spreading through him, like a warm ray of sunshine on a cool autumn day.
He was so lost in his thoughts that he almost didn’t notice when he arrived at the wood nymphs’ grove.
He circled down and landed gently in front of their treehouse, where a group of giggling, chattering nymphs was waiting for him with a big basket of clothes.
“Good morning, ladies!”
he called out, smiling broadly at them.
They squealed with delight and ran forward to greet him, throwing their arms around his neck and smothering him with kisses.

I was always happy to see the nymphs.
They were a cheerful and carefree bunch, who spent most of their time dancing and singing and playing pranks on each other.
But they also had a tendency to get their clothes very dirty, which meant he had to wash them often.
But that was okay.
Because he loved doing laundry.
And he loved the nymphs.
As he gathered up their clothes and stuffed them into the basket on his back, he chatted with them about all the things that had been happening in the Enchanted Forest.
After a few minutes, he bid them farewell and took off once more, this time headed for the nearest river to wash the clothes.
The water was cool and clear, and he worked quickly, scrubbing the clothes against the rocks and then hanging them up to dry in the warm sun.
When he was done, he flew back through the forest, stopping at Elara’s cottage to drop off one of the baskets of clothes she had given him earlier.
The front door was open, and she was sitting outside on her porch, sewing a small hole in a pair of trousers.
“Hello, Elara!”
he called out as he landed in her yard.
She looked up and smiled at him.
“Hello, Falkor,” she said.
“I was wondering when you would be back.”
Falkor wagged his tail excitedly and stepped forward to nuzzle her hand.
“Are you busy right now?”
he asked.
“I brought a basket of clothes for you to wash.”
Elara laughed and stood up from her chair.
“I’m never too busy to help a friend,” she said.
She walked over to the basket and pulled out a small pair of socks, examining them closely.
“You know, Falkor,” she said after a moment.
“I’ve been meaning to tell you how much I appreciate everything you do for the children.”
Falkor cocked his head to one side and blinked at her with his large golden eyes.
“I try my best,” he said humbly.
“But it’s not much really.It just makes me happy to see them smile.”
Elara shook her head.
“You have such a kind heart,” she said.
“It’s no wonder they love you so much.
And your work is important, Falkor.
The children need you to take care of them, and to take care of their clothes.
You make their lives better, in so many ways.”
Falkor blushed, the tips of his large pink ears turning bright red with embarrassment.
“You’re too kind, Elara,” he said.
“I’m just doing what I can to help out.
It’s not much, but it’s the least I can do.
The children bring so much joy and wonder to Fantasia, and they deserve to have clean clothes and happy lives.
It’s the least I can do to repay them for everything they’ve given me.”
Elara smiled at him and reached out to pat him gently on the nose.
“You’re a good luckdragon, Falkor,” she said.
“And I’m proud to call you my friend.”
Falkor beamed at her, the tip of his tail flicking back and forth happily behind him.
“As am I, Elara,” he said.
“I’m so glad you’re here.
I always love seeing you.

Falkor broke the silence first, in his usual cheerful way.
“I was wondering, Elara, if you wouldn’t mind taking care of the clothes while I wash them?”
His eyes sparkled with mischief as he looked down at her.
Elara laughed and shook her head.
“Of course, Falkor,” she said.
“I’d be happy to help.
But you do realize that I’ll need some way to repay you for all your hard work, don’t you?”
Falkor’s eyes widened in surprise, and he held his breath as he waited for her to continue.
She smiled up at him and tugged on the sleeve of her tunic, revealing the pair of silver scissors tucked into the waistband of her skirt.
“No matter how careful you are,” she explained, “sometimes clothes get torn or ripped when you’re out playing.
And I know that you always bring them back to the children in perfect condition.
So, if you ever need something mended, just bring it to me, and I’ll fix it for you.
“I don’t know what I would do without you, Elara,” he said gratefully.
“You’re my favorite magical tailor.”
Elara laughed and shook her head.
“I’m the only magical tailor you know,” she replied.
“And besides, it’s the least I can do to help out.
I know how much you love taking care of the children.
And I want to help in any way that I can.
Besides,” she added with a sly smile, “I’ll take any excuse to use my magic.”
Falkor grinned at her and stretched his large wings out behind him.
“Well, I’d better be going,” he said.
“I still have a few more stops to make before I finish collecting all the clothes.And I don’t want to keep the children waiting.”
Elara nodded and waved at him as he took off into the sky.
“Thank you for all your help, Falkor,” she called out after him.
“I’ll see you later!”
Falkor flew through the sky on his luckdragon wings, his heart filled with joy.
The sun was shining down on him, casting a golden light over the Enchanted Forest.
The air was warm and sweet with the scent of flowers and fresh grass, and he could hear the birds singing as they flew through the trees.
He was doing what he loved most—serving the children of Fantasia, in every way that he could.
He collected bags of dirty clothes from all around the Enchanted Forest, from all kinds of magical beings.
There were tiny socks made from spider silk and dresses woven from threads of pure gold.
There were shirts made from leaves and pants made from clouds.
But no matter what they were made from or who they belonged to, they all had one thing in common:
They were loved by the children who wore them.
Falkor collected them all and brought them back to Elara’s cottage so that they could be washed and mended.
He knew that when he left her cottage later that day, it would be with baskets full of clean clothes that looked as good as new.
