What will Magnolia do when the virus hits home?

Gardonavirus Hits the Garden

by DeboraDyess

Marigold sneezed. All the fairies fluttered away.

“Are you sick?” Hazel covered her face with one wing, landing on a wilting flower.

Marigold said, “No!”

“Make sure!” Rose whispered. She’d hidden from the sneeze behind a fern.

“The Gardonavirus is why flowers are fading!” Wisteria pointed to drooping flowers. “Be careful!”

Magnolia didn’t think she had Gardonavirus, but agreed to go away from flowers and fairies. She sadly flew into a hollow of rocks. There would be no friends, no outside play or flying. Magnolia wanted fairies and flowers to be safe.

“We’ll bring you dewdrops every morning!” Rose called. “And honey, too!”

“I’ll sing for you at night,” Hazel promised.

Long days passed. Magnolia missed her friends. They missed her, too.

One day, Rose flew into the hollow. “Come out!” she said.

Magnolia flew out. The flowers were bright and beautiful. Magnolia and the fairies cheered!  Gardonavirus was gone.
