All Creatures Great & Small

Gretta was exhausted from giggling and battling her fear of whatever and whomever was behind the rock. All was quiet in the forest as she opened the wee little book that promised that fairy tales come true.

As soon as she opened the book a warm breeze flew by...the color of pink and magenta. The breeze was delightful and this time it touched the tip of Gretta's ear. Little sparkles filtered down over her nose as she turned her eye's upward. Lavender plants were all around her and in a blink of Gretta's eye...a little tiny, tiny fairy appeared in all her glory. With her eyes down cast and her wings perfectly still...Gretta held her breath until her nose began to twitch. That something behind the rock let out a big ahhh...chooo...Gretta wished she could sneeze like that!

Gretta asked the little fairy what her name was and the fairy said nothing. Gretta asked her again and extended her paw. The little fairy climbed up on Gretta's paw, minding her manners she whispered...I'm Glimmer from the land of Nowhere and I have come to welcome the fairy child.
Gretta was speechless! Another fairy appeared out of Nowhere and she flew in smiling from wing to wing with a wee lady bug friend in her hand. She announced her arrival with such glee. I'm Laiden the Faerie Maiden from the Forest of Friends. I have come with a gift for the newborn fairy!
Little Laiden needed no invitation as she climbed up on Gretta's lap and blew a little bubble...up, up, up! Gretta watched the bubble float up over the big rock and all of a sudden a big furry paw reached up and popped the bubble.
Laiden took flight with Glimmer not far behind...
