Today was the day! Her excitement bubbled over with the realization that in less than an hour her life would change forever. The small white flower dress lay on the bed. He would come for her like the breeze floating from the window.
Lacy picked up a small green vial and drank it. Butterflies played tag in her stomach as she waited. Seconds ticked on lethargically until finally her entire body tingled. Lacy closed her eyes and relished the thought that the dress would fit in moments. The skin on her back tightened, her muscles tore causing her to cry out, and then nothing. Lacy opened her eyes.
The bed looked like Mount Everest and she knew she had to find a way to the top. She glanced over her shoulder and saw a huge wing similar to a butterflies moving back and forth behind her. She had wings! Lacy thought about fluttering to the bed and in moments, her small form lifted from the ground. She wobbled through the air and finally made it to the bed. The white dress sparkled with fairy flowers. She picked it up and inched her way into it just as the Fairy King flew through her opened window.
