The four little faeries living under the canopy of the ancient oak (Moonlight, Sunbeam, Starbright and DayDream by name) could not agree.
“Simply ludicrous,” chirped Sunbeam, “a civilization of giants living beyond the great Oak.” Moonlight and Starbright were sceptical as well. “And,” sighed Starbright, “your foolhardy notion of venturing into uncharted territory beyond Mother Oak can only lead to disaster.” Starbright could always see the potential for disaster.
DayDream struck a rebellious pose (not easy for someone only two inches tall). “I acknowledge it has an element of danger but surely you don’t begrudge me a little adventure.”
Sunbeam smoothed her flawless golden hair. “There will be no advantage to this activity DayDream. Even if you make the discovery of a race of giants who is to say they will be friendly. It may be their philosophy to crush all small, flying creatures. You know we aren’t much bigger than a dragonfly.”
“Daddy, Daddy,” whispered Amelia, “I just saw a faerie.”
John smiled. His daughter had some fanciful notions at times …but… a faerie. Now that was simply ludicrous.
