The Butterfly & The Rose
Once upon a time, there was a flower and a butterfly. The flower was living in a field, and she was new to the place. Her name is “Rosey”. Rosey is a rose.
The butterfly is always flying around; she has no home. She is very kind and respectful. She wears a skirt that is very colorful; the colors are the colors of the rainbow. Her name is “Sparkle”.
One day, Sparkle was flying around the field that Rosey lives in. Sparkle saw Rosey and flew down to meet her. Sparkle said: “Oh! You are so beautiful! Why are you sad?” “I am not sad; I just wish that it would rain someday! I am so dry! My roots are starting to dye! Oh, I just wish that it would just rain someday!” replied Rosey. “Well, I know a little secrete, and if you do not tell anyone, it will work! The secrete is to say to say something to the sky, and if you say it right, it would happen!” “What is it? I promise I would not tell a soul!” said Rosey. “OK, I will tell you! All you have to say is: Oh please clouds come and rain on me! I am very thirsty! That is all you have to say!” said Sparkle. And that is exactly what Rosey did, and it started to rain. Rosey was so happy!
The next day, a grasshopper was hopping by. The grasshopper is very old and he is very tricky with people. His name is “Trickster”. Rosey saw Trickster and said “I am so miserable! I am so bored in this place! I wish that I can move around like you!” “You can” said Trickster. “Oh, yeah! I can just pick up my roots and leave!” Rosey said with sarcasm. “Of course not silly! You could travel!” said Trickster. “Travel? But how?” he asked confused. “You will see how! Let us just make a date to see when you will travel, so I can pick you up!” “OK! How about tomorrow! I will be ready!” “Alright! Fine with me!”
The next day, Trickster was carrying a pot and a wrapping paper. Rosey was wondering what these things are for. Trickster took Rosey out of the ground, and put her in the pot, and wrapped the pot with the colorful wrapping paper, and carried her of to a balcony and left. Rosey was so happy there! The people there are so nice! She loved the soft hands that will touch the soil everyday to if it needs water. She loves the noses that enjoy the smell of her. She loves the eyes that would look at her everyday.
There is one problem. The problem is that where ever she looks she sees walls everywhere, but in the field she would see the sun and hills and the beauty of nature. Then, she knew why they were taking care of her more than the other plants. The other plants are not real; they are made out of plastic! Rosey was so sad! Suddenly, she saw Sparkle flying by! Rosey said “Oh! My good friend! Please come and help me!” “No I would not help you! What kind of friend leaves another friend?”
Well, that is the end of the story. I hope that you enjoyed it, and learned a lesson from it! Please do not try to give up your friends, because then you would be very sad your hole life!
