Guys, I need your help. Alhamdulillah, we’ve been blessed by Allah with a daughter who is very excellent in her writing skills, and we didn’t want it to be forgotten and drained just like that. Well you know how submissive our education system is and how robotic the kids would be if we ourselves as parents stop nurturing them at home and just expecting the school to take care of them wholly. She’s currently 8 years old. This part of the story (there is another second half which I didnt publish it here) was written since last night. The ideas flow very well. She had few other stories before and we do plan to compile and publish it as a book, which would make her motivated to read and write more. If you got to know a good publisher that publish kids storybooks who we can approach and make this happen, please, by all mean. Thank you very much!
Fairy Clouds by Nur Najihah Amanina
“This is going to be the most boring holiday ever,”complained Emily’s big brother, Alex as the train came to a halt at the railway staition. Emily didn’t listen. She was already spotting Uncle Mark,Auntie Hanna and their son and daughter, Marco and Annie. Annie and Emily are both nine years old and Marco and Alex are both twelve years old.As soon as the doors opened,Emily ran out to them to give them a hug,not feeling a bit shy. Emily and Annie believe in fairies but the others don’t.On the way to Uncle Mark’s cottage, they stopped at a garage.Uncle Mark was chatting to the man next to him which Emily believed that was the owner,Mr Chris.Then Emily saw two fluttery yellow things that were flying around in the shop.Emily quickly told Annie about the two things she saw and they both got out of the car.”Are you both alright?” asked Uncle Mark.
Emily and Annie just nodded and ran straight to the shop to see what was flying.Then they saw it.Those fluttery yellow things were two fairies both holding a chocolate bar.The fairies saw them too and slowly introduced themselves.”Hello, I’m Connie.”Connie said cheerfully.Connie had long,black and smooth hair and was dressed in a purpley pink cardigan and a short skirt made out of fresh sweet smelling lilys.She wore glasses that had flowers decorating it.Then the next fairy introduced herself.”Hello, I’m Garnet.”Garnet said quietly.Garnet had a rather sensible and silent look on her face and had tied hair with white roses clipped on her hair too.She wore a blue and white cardigan on and had a skirt made out of pink roses. They both had glittery wings which they showered with golden dust.”What’s your name?” asked Connie.”Hello, I’m Emily and this is my cousin Annie,”Emily introduced.Suddenly they heard Auntie Hanna calling them.”If you want us to meet you tonight, put some chocolate on the windowside tonight and we’ll wake you guys up okay?” Connie asked.”Okay,”they replied.”Here, take this.”Garnet said while handing them the chocolate bar.”Emily,Annie hurry up!” Alex shouted. He had already woken up and was in grouchy mood as well as Marco.”See you tonight!”shouted the fairies.
That night, Emily and Annie put the chocolate bar at the windowside and went sleep.About seven minutes later,the fairies came and woke them up.They both were dressed in which looked like pyjamas and they both had a sad look on their face. Connie was dressed in pink pyjamas and lily glasses and they both had glittery wings.Garnet was dressed in white pyjamas and her hair was loose now so her was quite long.”What’s wrong?” Annie asked. Suddenly Connie fell on too Annie’s hand and said,”We are so sad because our home is going to be removed. Our home is in the clouds. It is going to be destroyed because we lost something very special which is the Gem Of Clouds.Without the gem, no more snow and rain will come.We only have a week left. Tommorow we will come with Queen Rosy.Queen Rosy and the whole of Fairycloud Land needs both of your help.”We try and you guys as soon as possible” said Annie.”Okay if that’s so,meet us at the bottom of the garden at 2 o’clock tommorow in the afternoon.” said Garnet.
The next afternoon, Emily and Annie went out straight to the garden. A few minutes later, Connie and Garnet arrived with Queen Rosy.Queen Rosy was dressed in a long dress made out of pink roses and wore a red cardigan made out of red roses. Her crown was made out of the freshest white roses ever and her wings were the most glitteriest wings that Emily and Annie had ever seen.”Hello Emily and Annie, how are you?”she asked.”We are fine thank you Queen Rosy.” They both replied shyly.”Oh, there’s no need to be shy to me” said Queen Rosy.Suddenly Garnet shouted,”Hey, I think I found a piece of the gem!”.Everybody rushed around to see.Emily then picked it up.”I think you guys should keep it” said Queen Rosy.Then Auntie Hanna called them inside.”Come on, let’s go to the market” said Auntie Hanna while putting on her jacket.”Put on your jacket and boots and let’s go!” she added.At the market, there were so many things to buy. Auntie Hanna bought quite a lot of stuff.”Tell me, do you go to the market a lot of times, Annie?” Emily asked.”Not really, I just stay home and watch TV or read a book, you know.”Annie replied, shoving some fruits in a plastic bag.”Come on girls, let’s go to the book stall.” Auntie Hanna said, struggling with some plastic bags. At the book stall,Annie and Emily saw some good fairy books.Annie picked up one book and asked,”Mum, please could we buy one book each?”Auntie Hanna looked at them and replied,”Alright, but promise me don’t get it ruined.””Okay,we promise.”They answered.
Back at the cottage,Alex was chatting happily with Marco about cars,motors …..
