One day mother fairy took her four children for a walk. They followed behind her in a straight line looking so sweet in their white gowns. Soon they stopped in the meadow where they often played and sat on the grassy slope at the edge of the lake. “A year has passed since you were given your white gowns, it is time to think about the color of your forever gown. You will always have this gown so it is very important to think carefully about the color you choose,” she said.
The first fairy thought about how very much he enjoyed the winter. He loved the cold wind and the frozen lake that they played on. He loved how the cracks in the snow looked dark blue below. He decided that blue would be a perfect color for him.
The second fairy loved the spring when all the buds and leaves start to show. She loved it when they tumbled and rolled in the new spring grass. She decided that she must choose green.
The third fairy though summer was the best of all. The sun was the brightest yellow and l the flowers covered the meadow. She especially loved the yellow roses and wild buttercups. Yes, yellow was the color that she wanted for her forever gown.
The smallest fairy thought and thought. He enjoyed all the seasons and loved all color. As he sat thinking he found his favorite memories were in the fall. He loved the fat pumpkins and the wonderful dancing leaves that fell. Even the sun seemed orange each night before it said good night. He jumped for joy! He knew he wanted an orange gown.
That eveningt when the fairies took off their white gowns and got ready for bed they were so joyful and excited about their forever gowns that they talked long into the night. In the morning when they woke there was a wonderful gown folded at the bottom of each of their beds. They jumped out of bed and put the gowns on and ran down the stairs and into the kitchen with beaming smiles. Mother fairy turned around to see a rainbow of color as her children lined up to show her their forever gowns. In a flurry of color and excitement they flew out of the door to show off their forever gowns to their friends.
