The missing butterfly

Story by Hannah.

Once upon a time there was 2 little girls. One named Lilly and the other was Daisy Tune. (as she loved to stay in tune with the other flowers.) One day while they were walking through the forest an arrow appeared. It was very strange to find an arrow in the forest where there was nothing to play with. There was however a pile of sticks to build a Tee-pee with.
So they followed the arrow to a bridge over a duck pond, the ducks were all different colours, green, brown and white. Let me mention that the green ones were black as well. They stayed and feed the ducks. (Cause they had some bread with them, which was actually their lunch! But they didn't mind at all!) While they were feeding the ducks they saw some fluffy little yellow ducklings. Lilly thought they were soooo absolutely "cute" but just then Daisy Tune remembered they had to follow the arrows...
"Come on Lilly we have to follow the arrows, we'll miss the surprise!!"
"How do you know it's a surprise?" said Lilly.
Daisy Tune laughed at her friend, "I always know if it's a surprise or not, I'm the smartest girl in the world!" she boasted!!
"No you're not!" shouted Lilly! "Let's stop bickering and follow the arrows!"
so they went across the duck pond bridge. "BYE little ducklings" said Lilly. Daisy Tune pulled her friend to hurry her along.
Next Lilly asked Daisy Tune what the missing butterfly was about.
"What missing butterfly?" answered Daisy Tune. Lilly pulled out the map that they found earlier. They looked at the map and suddenly Daisy Tune remembered,
"We're looking for the blue spotted, pink dotted butterfly!"
Soon they were in trouble!! A fire appeared out of no-where! Quickly they tried to fight the fire,
"I don't know how the fire appeared!" said a surprised looking Lilly. They fought the fire as hard as they could! Then before them it disappeared!!!!
"Phew! That was close!!" Daisy Tune declared! "Lets hurry along."
They rolled down a hill (as they were little children and they liked to get into mischief!) Soon they got to another arrow that was pointing to a gate, the same gate that was on the map! It was the last arrow. As they rolled they almost hit it! Thankfully they slowed down just in time. The gate had a picture of the blue spotted, pink dotted butterfly. The gate opened into a butterfly garden. There were sooo many butterfly's that the friends could hardly see anything. Daisy then found a telescope at her feet which amazingly rolled down the hill with them!! They just didn't see it until now. Daisey Tune picked up the telescope, twisted the end and then she could see..... through the butterflies up ahead, in the distance, she saw the BLUE SPOTTED, PINK DOTTED BUTTERFLY!
"HURRAY!!!" they both screamed. We found IT! It had a message held in it's wing. Lilly asked the butterfly (as she could speak any animal language)
"Could we please take the message you hold in your wing?"
the butterfly said "YES!" Lilly then got out of her animal speaking mode and came back to her normal speaking. Daisy Tune read the message (as she is a very good reader.)
It said.... from The Scientists pencil head and Cloths wear (some very silly names) Both the girls laughed.
thank you for rescuing the butterfly, we have been waiting for months for someone to find it. WE thought the fire would scare you but you are very brave and didn't run away from it. As a reward for your bravery we'd like to give you something. Go back to the Blue spotted, pink dotted butterfly and you'll get it!
SO they went back to the blue spotted, pink dotted butterfly. Once again Lilly spoke to the butterfly and asked her what the surprise was. It didn't work, the butterfly didn't give it. Lilly asked her why? The blue spotted, pink dotted butterfly answered her why
"You have to guess my name first!"
"OK you're on," exclaimed Daisey Tune. They guessed like a 100 names and finally the 115th name was it!!
Her name was Jasmine the Queen. So Jasmine told Lilly what the surprise was.
"You have one big wish Lilly and Daisey Tune, think very carefully!" Jasmine said. Daisey Tune and Lilly closed their eyes....
"I've got it!" whispered Daisey Tune to Lily "We can wish for a big slide (with butterflies all over it) and a huge swing set for our back yard!" (As the girls had nothing to entertain them, no TV or computer or cd player!)
They told Queen Jasmine their wish, all of a sudden there was a big KA BOOM and sparkles flew in every direction. Daisey Tune and Lilly felt themselves flying in the sky like a feather back to their house with Queen Jasmine. When they arrived home Queen Jasmine told the girls to close their eyes and wait until she says to open them.
"Open your eyes!" Queen Jasmine shouted
ONE big sparkle and EVERYTHING they wished for was there and more things that they couldn't ever imagine!!!! So they invited Queen Jasmine for a big BBQ with butterfly and human food to say thank you for all their things! They had a lovely time, Jasmine the Queen became their pet and they lived happily ever after.
The End

Please tell me your favourite bits, I look forward to hearing from you!
