Short stories - Fleur and the photosynthesis

– “What´s wrong, beautiful flower? why are you crying?”

-“Because I have lost my lovely colors, the rain, last night, has erased them completely”

– “Don´t worry! I will give you them back thanks to these magic markers; but under one condition…”

-“Which one?” – asked the flower.

“I want you to delight everybody with your colors, but also with a nice perfume”..

The flower accepted, and the  fairy spilled on her a liquid from a little perfume bottle, and the other flowers and field inhabitants could enjoy the smell of that slight perfume.

Then, the fairy took the magic markers and painted the flower’s petals with patience, until she was as beautiful as before.

The flower thanked the fairy and promised he that would keep flooding the field with her perfume, sharing it with everybody.
