Here is mine! Fun Fact: I actually wrote this 3 years ago! I found it a week ago and edited it a little!

The Firelight Fairy

Once upon a time,there was a fairy named Dasha. She was a Firelight Fairy. Her friends were Frilla, Enna, Annie, Elinor, and Silvermist.

 Firelight Fairies created The Northern Lights.There were also many other Firelight Fairies but Dasha and Elinor were special. Dasha created the northern lights on January 1st and Elinor created the northern lights on December 31st. The birthday of a Firelight Fairy is the day they perform The Northern Lights, for example, Dasha's birthday is on January 1st so she created The Northern Lights that day. Firelight Fairies also have special medallions that they receive after their first Northern Light debut. Dasha's charm had a gold (real gold) with a lacy fringe around it. And the most important part of medallion was the image on the center, the center of Dasha's had an image of fire. She hung it on a gold chain as a necklace. It was her most prized possession.

Today was Dasha's birthday! She woke up at the crack of dawn and packed food, a sleeping bag, a folded tent, and, her 2nd most prized possession, a glass case for her charm. It was 7:00 am by the time she was ready for the day-long journey ahead of her. Carly, Dasha's ladybug, helped her carry everything. At 10:00 am she approached a waterfall. She cupped her hands and drank some water.

At 12:00 she stopped and ate,then continued her journey. At nightfall she set up her sleeping bag and tent and ate dinner and took a nap. She woke 1 hour later and flew into the sky, she twirled and swirled. Behind her dancing lights trailed                                                                          through the sky. 

“Whahoooooooo!!!!" she called as she flew. 

The lights looked like fire, nipping at the night sky. Dasha's fiery hair swooped in the wind. She flew all over the peek of Mt. Shamrock for 20 minutes, then flew down to rest. 

In the morning, Dasha packed up and started down the mountain for home. It was 5:00 by the time she got back to Calico Garden, her home. Enna ran up to meet her.

"Guess what?!" she said. "Miss Milly found a new Firelight Fairy in the Founding Forest!" 

To be continued....
