“Sammie, why do you always smile at the sunflower outside our house?” Mabel asked.
“Well… it brightens my day!”
“Sunflowers are everywhere! What’s so special about this one?”
“It’s a secret.”
In the middle of the night, Sammie approached the sunflowers.
“Hello, my friends!”
One by one, the sunflowers turned into fairies.
“Sammie!” the fairies echoed.
“I miss you!” said Joy, the youngest fairy.
“But I smile at you everyday!”
“That’s not enough! When are you coming back?”
“Stop pestering her, Joy! Her days as human are numbered.”
“Thanks for the reminder, Pixey. Once Mabel’s parents reconcile, I’ll be back.”
“You only think of Mabel.” Joy pouted.
“If it wasn’t for Mabel, we would have been destroyed. I have to repay her kindness.”
“Go! Sammie! Mabel needs you. I’ll handle this brat!” Pixey winked.
