Waiting for Fairies

By Brenda B. Covert
1     Bree put the green pencil down. She looked at her artwork with her chin in her hands. A shy, green fairy peeped back at her from the paper. She had given this fairy special wings. They looked like those of a lacewing insect. Pleased, Bree took some tape. She added the picture to her wall. Next to it were drawings of pink and blue fairies. Her colorful drawings of fairies were posted everywhere!
 
2     The townsfolk told stories about fairies. They said that fairies loved flowers and fun. Fairies liked to play tricks on people. Bree listened to the stories. She dreamed of catching a fairy. She wanted to keep it in a bird cage!
 
3     One hot midsummer day, Bree found a small net. "Maybe I will catch a fairy with this!"
 
4     A flower garden grew in the glen. Bree waited for evening. Then she set out for the glen. She felt sure that she would find fairies there.
