Story Starter

“I will grant you one wish, anything you desire,” said the fairy. Mary had only awoken moments ago to the sound of her window opening. To her fright, a small fairy had entered and sat an inch from her nose. Her wings were petite and her eyes were sharp. She did not flinch and she did not waver in tone. Mary was taken aback by her confident nature.
