The sky is clear and blue.
The lake is big and blue.
Summer breeze is sweeping over the big lake,
and you can see the waves rippling.
From the window of a little shop just by the lake,
all you can see is clear blue
of the sky and the lake.
The little shop
is nice and comfortable.
Wooden shelves are set on the cream colored walls. On the shelves are musical boxes, snowdomes, small clocks, and wooden squirrels and rabbits and many other more.
On a shelf close to the window, a bunch of “little bottles” with their pink round caps nest together.
The round caps have each a bow with different colors.
It’s very small,
you can just about see those pink caps if a small child holds the bottle.
The Lil Bottle with lavender colored bow whispered to Lil Bottle with rose red bow.
“Look, here they come."
A white car came from far along the road,
and stopped in front of the shop.
Two little girls popped out from the car, one in pale blue dress, the other in pale yellow.
They came into the shop hands in hands.
They went straight to the shelf by the window, and one said,
“Here it is! It’s still there!”
The bigger girl tiptoed and took the “Lil Bottle” Rose.
“ Me, too. I want the one with the lavender bow.”
The little girl asked her sister to take one.
The bigger girl is Aya.
The little girl is Chii.
They were spending the summer holidays by the big lake with their grandparents. Grandma said they can choose something they like for a souvenir.
They wanted the little bottle they saw in the shop by the lake.
Lil Bottle Rose and Lil Bottle Lavender
were neatly packed in pretty paper bags, and into the car they went.
Lil Bottle Rose and Lil Bottle Lavender are on their way to the little girls’ home,
their new home.
In the nursery the star shaped light is gently showing toys and pieces scattered on the girls’ writing desks.
There, on the desk
Lil Bottle Rose and Lil Bottle Lavender
were standing straight,
Rose on Aya’s and
Lavender on Chii’s desk.
The two desks were on far sides of the room.
The girls were sleeping on the bed between them.
The girls are together all the time.
Lil Bottles were still very nervous so they woke up all night.
After breakfast, Aya and Chii brought the Lil Bottles downstairs.
“ What are we going to do today, Aya?”
, asked Chii.
“ We are going to do The Blending.”
The girls put some water in their Lil Bottles
and then some more from the room fragrance spray bottle.
“ What a nice smell!”
The Lil Bottles were astonished at first,
and then became dreamy.
“ We are the lovely perfumes...."
The Perfume-Lil Bottles
felt like princess and sat up very straight, with their heads high.
The girls held the bottles in their hands and sang and danced around.
The Lil Bottles were back on the girls’ desks, washed and dried.
They gazed at the sleeping girls.
“ Oh, wasn’t that fun today? ”
“Sure it was!”
They were talking in whisper.
The next day...
This time Chii said
“ Let’s play faries”
The girls brought origami papers and color pencils and tissue box on the dining table.
They made fairy wings with tissue papers and stuck it on the back of
Lil Bottle Rose and Lil Bottle Lavender.
Placing Rose on a blue origami sheet,
“Mine is fairy of the Lake”
Chii put hers on some leaves from the garden
“Mine is fairy of the leaves”
With their fluffy wings,
the Lil Bottles felt as if they could fly.
The Lil Bottles were talking excitedly as they gazed at the sleeping girls, almost falling off the edge of the bed.
“I really think this house is magical, don’t you?”
“Oh, yes! What will happen tomorrow?”
The Lil Bottles sighed a very contented sigh,
and they were sure they could sleep very well that night.
It’s a very sunny morning
The girls decided to go to a park nearby.
They took their favorite bag,
and in it they put handkerchief and tissues
of course their Lil Bottle Rose and Lavender.
The park is just aross the street.
They headed for the swing.
Aya stood on it and swung.
Chii sat and started to swing, very hard.
Chii fell off and rolled over.
"It hurts, my hands, my knees!"
She was about to burst into tears.
Aya came right away and took out her Lil Bottle Rose.
Rose got it.
" Here I come! I'm the sanitizer fairy!"
"Here I come! I'm the medicine fairy!"
, cried Lavender.
They knew they only had water in them
but they did their best to sooth her pain.
"See, the little bottles did a good job.It doesn't hurt any more, does it?"
, said Aya.
" It's gone! "
, Chii replied in surprise.
She wasn't crying.
Rose and Lavender did a little hurray *\(^o^)/*
" What shall we be tomorrow?"
"What shall we do tomorrow, I'm so excited."
Rose and Lavender talked about their dreams as they gazed at the sleeping girls.
