This is another story from Aunt Kitty’s Storybook. I based it on my niece, and all the fairies are based on fairies from Cicely Mary Barker’s flower fairies.
Kaya liked to pretend she was a fairy. After all, she had a fairy forest in her own backyard! It had white lights on the trees that looked like flower fairy sparkles. It was so beautiful, she could hardly stop herself from playing in it every day.
Sometimes she would see fairies. She saw a flicker of light, one time, and knew it was a fairy car. Another time, she saw a glint of green, and thought it was the hem of a dress.
But the real fun happened when Kaya was snuggled in her bed all warm and cozy. Inside was peaceful and quiet, outside there was a party going on!
The Queen of the Fairies was holding court high up in a tree. She was a very special kind of fairy. She was The Christmas Tree Fairy! She wore the brightest white, brighter than the lights in the fairy forest, and she wore a green ribbon and a green headband with a star on it. That gracious queen was smiling for all to see, lovely pretty maid was she.
The Blackthorn Fairy was flitting here and there, excitedly. She had to ask The Christmas Tree Fairy an important question! She never did get to ask her question, because suddenly, The Elm Tree Fairy pushed her off the leaf she was using for balance. What a mean boy was he!
The Wild Cherry Blossom Fairy was eating the daintiest cherry at this time. It dripped all down her front, and her pretty dress was becoming smeared all over, but she didn’t care. She was so very happy! The Pear Blossom fairy was doing a similar thing, but he was not being as messy. What fun all this was!
The Double Daisy Fairy was just a little baby. She was hiding in her red flowers, much too shy to say a thing to their Queen. She just sat there smiling the biggest smile, just to be able to look at her. She wished she could be Queen.
Finally, The Lily-of-the-Valley Fairy, in her pajamas, decided all the fun and partying had tuckered her out, and went to beddy-bye. The Christmas Tree Fairy thought this was a lovely idea, so she blew out the fairy-forest lights, and the beautiful scene was over.
