The Special Pixie Dust - Chapter 1 - The Discovery

Once there was a girl who was very poor. Her name was Bella. One day Bella was walking from the lake to get some water when she saw something shine. Bella climbed the tree and something so bright that blinded her. She looked what it was and to her surprise it was fairy dust. She wondered if it really works. She climbs down the tree eagerly to see if it really works. She picks up the bucket full of water and the fairy dust and runs home as fast as she could.
                Once Bella got home she told her father what she has found on her walk. Her father said “don’t touch it because we are not sure if it is safe”.  That night Bella was tempted to open the fairy dust and use the fairy dust. Late that night when she knew her father was asleep she crept out of her bed and got the fairy dust. Bella ran off to the forest and she came to the river. Bella was getting some water from the river when she heard a voice in the water. She ran away.
            Bella was lying under a tree when she fell asleep. The next morning she thought that her father would be worried sick. She made a note to her father and it said. 
Dear father I am in the forest out for a walk I will be back before lunch. I’m picking strawberries for dessert. I might even find a blueberry bush. From yours truly Bella 
Bella found a dove and called it over. She said to the dove in dove language “send this to my father”. To her surprise, she could speak to animals! So she went to the same spot where the voice was speaking to her and the voice said "come back tonight".

                After dinner she asked her dad if she could sleep in the forest for two nights. Her father said “alright, but start packing now if you want to go today.” She said “thank you, thank you, you are the best father in the world”. She started packing immediately. After she was done packing and say goodbye to her father she was off. She went to the river and waited for the voice to start speaking. It said “use the fairy dust”    


  1. Mia, this is a very exciting first chapter! I can't wait to read what happens next. So proud of you honey! Luv Mommy

  2. Great start, Mia! I hope you have as much fun as I did writing stories when I was your age. I used to make up stories about magic, too. I like make-believe stories about witches, fairies, etc... (just like my favorite fairytales like Snow White, Cinderella, etc...) Maybe someday you will add pictures to your stories? Do you think you will ever read your stories aloud for others to enjoy? Best wishes for the remaining chapters. Rose rosepillay1
