Crowning Glory

When her crown falls in the river, Aurora must find it but time is running out.

Crowning Glory

Aurora was in quite a flap.  She had less than an hour before handing over her crown to the Queen of her colony, marking the end of her service.  It had been a huge honour being crowned Fellowship Fairy.  Her preparations for the ceremony were going well until her crown fell into the river. 

Now what? Her wings would never dry in time if she swam in search of it.  At that moment, Fernando croaked and graciously placed the crown in front of her. “It was on my lily pad, and there wasn’t enough room for both of us!” he winked.

Thanks for reading

    1. Hi Penny, thank you, I’m glad you liked it. I have a story about Aurora’s beginnings when she made her debut in our local paper. I’ll post it on my website for you. 🙂 Look out for a story titled Fairy Dust.


    1. Thanks, Isadora 😊 Aurora has turned a corner from her wayward beginnings in a story I wrote three years ago for our local paper. She can be found in a story titled, Fairy Dust on my website
