Clever Little Fairy

Posted by admin

It is a big problem having a mother who was a fairy. You can?t be sure when she is going to use her magic. The magic is the problem now.
\
?Bella Mirella, you will be starting fairy school next week, but you can?t even do a simple doubling spell. Now, try this apple,? said Bella Mirella?s mother.
\
Bella Mirella shut her eyes. She tried to think of two shiny apples, but it was so hard when she felt so cross. Screwing up her face, she said the magic words, ?Doubling spell, work out well!? Ping!
\
?Not a great success,? said her mother looking at the two apples. ?Let?s go out into the garden now for more practice!?
\
In the garden there was no escape for Bella Mirella.
\
?Perhaps you are better at simple changing spells,? said her mother, ?Change this watering can into a bucket. Concentrate!?
\
Bella Mirella looked hard at the watering can. She tried to imagine it losing its spout and handle. Just as she was ready to do the magic, her sister Tina Marina started to yell. This time Bella Mirella shut her eyes and her ears and said, ?Changing spell, Work out well.? Ping!
\
?Bella Mirella, what are you doing?? her mother cried. ?Poor little thing!?
\
The little fairy had turned the watering can, but not into a bucket. Instead, she had turned it upside down. Water poured all over Tina Marina.
\
Bella Mirella?s mother frowned at her oldest little fairy. ?You know, Bella Mirella, there are three kinds of spells that you must be able to do before you go to the fairy school: doubling spells, changing spells, and moving spells,? she said. ?It seems that you can do them all, but not at the right time! Now just keep an eye on Tina Marina for a couple of minutes while I get her a dry fairy suit and practice!?
\
Bella Mirella sighed. She tried so hard with her spells but they did not work out well. She looked at her sister and some bad thoughts came into her head. ?It?s all your fault, Tina, little froggy face,? Bella cried.
\
And in the next second, without shutting her eyes or saying a magic rhyme?Ping! Her sister was a frog! Bella Mirella was so shocked that she had to sit down. What had she done and how? ?Oh no, this will mean double trouble,? thought Bella Mirella.
\
Just as the words slipped through her mind?Ping! There were two frogs! Bella Mirella looked in horror with her two little green sisters. Just then she heard her mother coming back. She must hide the frogs while she thought of a plan. As soon as she saw Tina Marina?Ping! The two frogs were safely hidden away!
\
?Where?s Tina Marina?? asked her mother, looking around. Bella Mirella was about to panic when she suddenly realized how easy it had been all along. There was no need to try really hard, or shut her eyes, or say magic words. She just had to be herself and think like a fairy. So with a secret smile, Bella Mirella looked at the sky and Ping!
\
She did a changing spell and moving spell and an advanced reverse doubling spell all at once! ?Well, Bella Mirella,? her mother said as she smiled, ?you are a very clever little fairy. I knew you could do it. You will be able to teach Tina Marina soon.? Bella Mirella thought to her self that she would wait until she was sure that her sister had forgotten the day that her toes were wiggly and green.
