One day there were two fairies, Suesi and Sewi and they were sisters. They lived in a beautiful little bush. They were out for a little walk enjoying the day when suddenly they saw a funny and weird tree.
‘Well well well, what is this funny looking tree?’ whispered Suesi. She spoke quietly so as to not disturbed the tree. At that moment another fairy flew out from behind the tree.
‘Hello! What’s your name?’ asked Sewi. The fairy seemed shy but she replied, ‘hello my name is Seena’.
Sewi and Suesi replied in unison ‘that’s cool because all our names start with S’.
‘My name is Suesi and her name is Sueboba’.
‘Hey! Ignore that, my name is Sewi’. The three fairies laughed.
The grass below their feet was colourful and there were little insects in the tree and fresh apples as well.
‘Shall we get those three apples on the tree before anyone else gets it,’ said Seena.
‘Yes!’ The two sisters said in excitement.
‘Well then let’s go now’. Seena looked very shy when she went shooting up in the sky. Suesi and Sewi followed behind Seena. Then as they were flying up they dropped down suddenly. That’s when the mystery happened. They looked at the tree in silence. Some sort of energy was coming from it.
‘Will the tree move? Will the tree talk?’ whispered Sewi.
‘I don’t know, but we need more pixie dust to fly again’.
‘What are you doing down there?’ Seena shouted, ‘Come up don’t waste time’.
‘We can’t fly anymore,’ they both shouted back.
‘I will get the apples then’.
‘Watch out there is a boy coming!’
‘Quick, hide… quickly hide, hide, hide!’ Suesi and Sewi both turned invisible just in time using the invisibility flower they always carried. When the boy passed by and was gone they turned un-invisible. When Seena came down they all enjoyed the apples and after they finished they put each apple in the tin bin, which was rather smelly, but they did not mind.
Another special thing about fairies, which perhaps you did not know is that they each have their own pet. Sewi summoned Foxie, Seena called Rabibity, and last of all, Suesi summoned Owl. Foxie is good at sniffing, owl is good at looking up in the trees, and rabbit that is good at testing things. They three fairies asked their pets if the could look for some pixie dust. The pets searched and searched on the ground, under flowers and in the bushes for a few minutes, but could not find any.
They all just stood there thinking what do because after all a fairy needs pixie dust to fly. Just then Seena had an idea, so they crowded around her.
‘Why don’t you talk to that tree?’
‘Let’s try then. What are you waiting for?’ So they spoke to the tree.
The tree moved. It was a magical tree. The tree had orange and yellow leaves, grey branches, and a pink brown, purple, black, white, red, green, and blue skin.
‘Fascinating,’ they whispered.
Colour insects came out from the tree and gave the fairies pixie dust in a bag. Now they could fly around again. The problem was solved! They had a invisible picnic just to be safe. However, the boy that passed by earlier came and took the bag of pixie dust. They noticed just in time and followed him quietly.
Their hearts were beating hard. They followed him all the way to his house. On the way they could see yellow and pink roses that smelled like strawberries, and green trees that had dots. The white dots sprayed out water. They drank some when they were going pass and there was a girl giving out honey that looked as fresh as the mountains. The last thing they saw was a little happy frog leaping as high as a dog on the lily pads. The boy arrived at his cottage and shut the door immediately. The fairies did not manage to catch the door open.
Sewi had an idea. She whispered desparately, ‘Seena you can fly through the keyhole and figure out how to open the door’. So she did.
‘AHA,’ said Seena with a broad face. Happy in her mind. She opened the door. Suesi and Sewi both went in the cottage cartwheeling just in time to see where the boy put the bag with the pixie dust. The floor was marble. The wardrobe was crystal. The wall was made of slate and the desk of wood. The floor was made of feather, the drawers cardboard, the window glass, the bookshelf paper, and the door plastic. Sewi whispered, ‘this room is weird, especially the curtains. It’s made out of beads and I wonder why the bed is made out of lego and the decorations are made out of mega blocks’.
‘I think you forgot one thing, they toys are made out of pens,’ replied Seena.
‘Now come on let’s get to work, we all should climb the ladder’.
The boy grabbed the bag as they got nearer to it. He had invisibility glasses on so he could see them. The three fairies quickly turned and shouted like a robot. ‘We want our pixie dust back now!’
‘Okay then,’ replied the boy. ‘And by the way. My name is Tommy. Can I explore with you.’
‘Sure, we can visit your house again’.
And so back they went into the forest where they made a new home next to the magic tree. Now they could ask for help whenever they wanted.
Will they explore again? Their pets were lovely and helpful. Sewi, Suesi and Seena lived happily ever after.
