Nicole was playing in the corner of her room when she spotted a little insect
flying around the place. She got up and took a few steps towards the tiny
flying object. As she got closer, she saw that it let out an
iridescent glow. However, every time Nicole
seemed close enough to reach out and touch it, it flew in some other direction.
Frustrated, she tried to trap what she thought was a green coloured fly with her hands.
"Oh! Please, please stop or you'll hurt me!" a tiny and irritated voice screamed. Nicole was
dumbfounded. She hardly expected a fly to talk.
The tiny insect buzzed right in front of her and stopped in mid-air, in front of
her eyes. Nicole saw that it was a glowing fairy, the kind she had so often read about in story books of a land called
'Fairy Land'. Nicole slumped to the floor in shock.
Upon seeing Nicole's reaction, the fairy felt bad to have given Nicole a fright
and she apologised. After Nicole had recovered from her initial surprise,
the lively fairy told her amazing stories about where it lived. The fairy performed
different tricks, changing the colour of its glow with each trick.
Nicole stared stonily, disbelieving her eyes. However, when she became more comfortable,
Nicole could not stop asking the fairy questions about Fairy Land.
That afternoon was the most enjoyable afternoon a little girl could ever have at home.
When dusk came, the fairy and Nicole bade each other goodbye.
The fairy promised to return in two days, so that they could get to know each other better. Perhaps some of her fairy friends
would come along too.
