I found my gif HERE.
I now present my tiny tale introducing Flory, The Garden Fairy.
FLORY’S FAIRY WINGS
At graduation, Flory and her fairy friends debuted wings displaying their true power.
Willow’s green wings cascaded a flowering arch.
Phoenix’s fiery wings transformed her into a bird.
Amaya’s silver wings showered everyone in light rain.
Flory touched her back. Nothing. Her smile quivered at her turn. She ran to the ice cream shop instead.
“I’ll never be a real fairy without wings.”
A boy in front of her pulled at empty pockets.
Flory handed him a coin.
“My treat,” she said.
“Thank you,” the boy replied.
Prr-ing! Golden wings sprouted on Flory’s back.
The boy ran to help an old fairy tie shoes he couldn’t reach.
I get it now, thought Flory.
She ran back to graduation.
“Oh, Flory,” said Amaya.
“They’re beautiful,” said Phoenix.
“What’s your power?,” asked Willow.
Flory smiled. “Something measured, yet unseen. I spread kindness forward one fairy at a time.”
