The Squash Fairy

Post by amsula_2018 » 09 Nov 2018, 03:39

Lanie and Amie are sisters living in an island surrounded by fruit bearing trees and vegetables. Amie is preparing their breakfast while Lanie segregates the fruits in their sizes. Amie is in charge of picking up the fruits and vegetables while Lanie is in charge of selling it. Amie stays at home to tend for the plants. Amie always pray for the safety of her sister.

One night Amie dreamt of a huge tsunami that washed their house and it includes her and her sister. She immediately woke up and told her sister about it. Lanie dismissed her dream and told her that it is just a dream and they should go together in the market to sell the fruits and vegetables. Amie agreed. When they arrived at the Small Town, an earthquake shook the ground and everyone noticed an incoming tsunami afterwards. Amie prayed that their house is spared from the tsunami. They have nowhere else to stay if it is destroyed. The wave was so high that Lanie and Amie thought it would be their last. They hugged each other for the incoming impact but they are surprised that a shield protected the entire town from the tsunami. Moments later, the Mayor advised them to stay in the shelter for few days before they go back to the island. Reliefs were provided for those who does not live in the Small Town and for those whose homes are destroyed by the earthquake. Many are still curious of why they are spared by the tsunami but Lanie and Amie are just glad that they are alive.

Days later, Lanie and Amie bought several seeds and few building materials to fix whatever is left of their home. When they arrived at their island, they expect the worse but they are surprised of what they saw. Their house is intact and all the vegetables and the trees that surrounds their house are safe.

The night has come and Amie dreamt that a boy was stabbed to death and wished that such would never come to pass. Then she heard a voice. A voice of an old woman.

"Are you sure this is your third wish? You know that after your third wish, you will take my place as the squash fairy."

"What do you mean third? What is the first and second?"

"You wished that your island would be spared by the tsunami and the small town would be spared from the tsunami."

"I see but why would you like me to take your place as a squash fairy?"

"Because you love nature and you are good."

"Why would you give up immortality?"

"All the people I cared for are all gone and I wish to join them in afterlife."

"Yes, I would take your place but save the boy in my dream."

"Granted."

Amie's hair turned into gold and her clothes were changed into green dress. The boy was saved but Amie was not told that she cannot be seen by her sister. Lanie searched for her sister in all town. Amie is always looking after of her sister wherever she goes and when she is in the market, she leaves and do her duty. She does all the duty of a squash fairy and other fairies took notice of her dedication. The flower fairy asked the squash fairy if there is something that she wishes. She told her that she wants to be with her sister. The flower fairy smiled.

Days turned into years and everyday, Amie sees her sister before she goes to work. A celebration was to be given to the new flower fairy. Amie was reluctant to go to the celebration but was asked by the Light fairy to come. She went to the celebration and saw that the new flower fairy is her sister Lanie. They hugged each other tightly. THE END.
