The Good Little Fairy

Once upon a time, not too long ago, a tiny Little Fairy came to this earthly plane. She was a fragile little thing that felt deeply and was overwhelmed easily. Council warned her that although she chose a time of great hope, it would be a long, hard road.

She chose a guardian family that loved and protected her. She spent her days surrounded by music and art. She danced and played in the garden with creatures from many realms.  The guardians took her on great adventures to the outside world.  Eventho they loved and cared for her, the Little Fairy never felt like she quite fit and she was little to do what the others were doing. She quietly lived in her our little world of creatures and magic.

Soon it was time for the Little Fairy to go out on her own with the promise of being with ones like her. She visited the big castle and peered through it's window. Her imagination exploded at the possibilities and promise of this new adventure. The ride to and from was filled with song, laughter and a very nice driver. In between was filled with chaos, confusion and anger. The Little Fairy felt bombarded with feelings that were not her own. She didn't see any others like her, she felt lost and alone.

The castile quickly turned into a prison. The singing stopped. The creatures that she played with and protected her became invisible even to her. Altho she always knew they were there.  The years went by and the Little Fairy learned to hide her wings. She set about building an armor to protect her wings but she never was able to fully protect her heart. She tried her hardest to make her armor look like everyone elses but it never quite did. It never quite fit either, which made her awkward and clumsy.

For years the Little Fairy wander the land, battled windmills and suffered many losses.  These years wore hard on her.  The things she saw and experienced took it's toll on the Little Fairy. Too tired to move she began the long process of chipping away at her heavy armour.  It had grown so deeply into her it was painful to remove. Some pieces still remain but the Little Fairy's wings never stopped growing. They are becoming more glorious each day.
