Why Trees Sparkle with Water

Hey, everyone! On February 13th, I saw the trees sparkle with melted snow and it inspired me to write this story. Here are some other stories: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/02/02/how-rain-came-to-be-natures-glitter/http://lilliandarnell.com/2016/07/20/a-happy-world/,  and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/03/09/angel-island/. I hope you enjoy!

Once long ago, there lived a family of trees in a faraway land of Tree Land. The trees names were Pine, Cherry, Apple, and Fire (also known as Delphine). They all lived happily in their home which was called the Palace of Fruit. One day,  an invitation arrived at the Palace of Fruit.

The invitation had said that the Ice King was having a tree ball to find the perfect tree for him to decorate. After the family of trees read the invitation, they knew that they had to have the most beautiful dress ever.

So Cherry and Apple went to Fashionable Blooms Store to look for a gorgeous dress. Meanwhile, Pine and Fire went to Fairytale Blossoms Store for a pretty dress. Cherry and Apple realized that they were in the wrong store so they went to Fairytale Blossoms Store instead.

While Cherry and Apple were at Fairytale Blossoms Store, Pine and Fire also had realized that they had been in the wrong store. So Pine and Fire went to Fashionable Blooms Store instead.

Cherry and Apple found a gorgeous sparkly dress aisle made from ice and snow all made from the Ice King. Cherry found a stunning glittery pink dress while Apple found an identical dress except it was a beautiful neon red color.

Pine and Fire found a flaming nutty dress aisle made from pinecones and fires made by the Fire King and Pine King. Fire found a flaming hot red dress while Pine found a pointy brown pine needle dress. Of course, Fire thought it looked a little dull so Fire sprinkled a bit of pinecone dust with glitter on it.

After Cherry and Apple paid for their dresses, they headed to Tree Lane. As they left, Fire and Pine paid for their dresses and they headed to Tree Lane as well to meet up at Olive’s Treet Diner to eat a celebratory meal together.

At the diner, the family of trees chose a peppermint bark salad with a lemon flavored fruit as a side. The family of trees talked about their dresses and Pine & Fire had admitted that they didn’t care about the Ice King. They did care for Pine King and Fire King who also happened to have a ball the same night.

So the family of trees split up for that big night but the big night wasn’t until the end of the month. The month flew by and the big night came, the family of trees got ready together but they split up so they could go to their balls.

That night when the Ice King saw Cherry and Apple in their stunning dresses, he asked to have an icy tree dance with them both separately. Of course, when the ball came to an end, the Ice King couldn’t decide who to decorate so he chose both Cherry and Apple.

Naturally Apple and Cherry were very surprised when he announced that Apple and Cherry were to live and be decorated at his home. Apple and Cherry glanced at each other wondering if Pine and Fire were having the same reaction at their ball.

Meanwhile, when the Fire King and Pine King saw Pine and Fire, the Fire King asked to have a flaming tree dance with Fire while the Pine King asked to have a pointy tree dance with Pine. When the ball was over, Fire King announced that Fire got to stay with him. While the Pine King announced that Pine got to stay with him.

Fire and Pine asked if they could go tell Apple and Cherry the good news. The Fire King and Pine King both agreed. Meanwhile Apple and Cherry were heading to Cherry’s Treat Palace so they could tell the good news to Cherry and Apple.

Fire and Pine had already been at Cherry’s Treat Palace for an hour when Apple and Cherry showed up. Once Cherry and Apple sat down, Cherry and Apple announced that they get to be decorated and stay with the Ice King.

After Cherry and Apple said their news, Fire announced her news and Pine also shared her news. They congratulated each other and went on their way. So if you see any trees sparkling with water, that is Cherry or Apple.

A Realistic World Beyond Your Eyes

Hi there, everyone! Please note that the words are in English. You’re about to enter a realistic world that will pull you inside the realistic world which is called Cinnamon Extraordinary Planet.

“Mother, where are my cinnamon scented dresses?” asked a 10 cinnamon cakes old girl (which is 15 years old in earth years). “Campari, sorry but I just put them in a wet donut roll (a washer) and won’t be done until its dry.” answered Mother as she applied lipstick on her lips.

“Oh fine, do I have to wear cinnamon shirts?” asked Campari as she pouted around the cinnamon room.

“Oh, hi there! I didn’t see you come in! My name is Campari. My mother mentioned it earlier. My mother’s name is Sweet Cinnamon Dazzle although she likes going by SCD or Mother. I have a father who works at a cinnamon factory and I hardly see him but I do know his name which is Twisty Spice Herb and he also likes to go by TSH or Father. My best friend is Splendid Apple Cinnamon. She likes going by her full name.” explained Campari Dazzle as she looked at her mother with a cinnamon? look.
“So you must be a world visitor. Campari told me about you. Nice to meet you!” said Mother as she looked at the reader.

“Campari has a cinnamon dance to go to tonight and is very excited to be going there.” said Mother in a jokingly way.

So Campari got ready for the dance and she saw Sherbet waiting for her so she said,”Goodbye, Mother!” so fast that her mother didn’t get to tell her,”Have fun!” and so the dancing partners headed to the dance.

When they got there, they danced until midnight to get some cinnamon rolls. After that, they danced some more. They danced out onto the cinnamon scented balcony in the moonlight and kissed briefly. Shortly after that, they went inside and left the dance.

“Mother, I had the most wonderful time at the dance.” said Campari dreamily. “Well, that’s great!” said Mother. Then they both went to sleep.

The next morning, Campari said,”I’m in love,” and her mother said,”Who are you in love with?” and she responded,”Sherbet.”Do you want to get married yet?” said Mother.

“Mother, I want to have dates with him first”. So the couple set out on several dates a few days later. Just a month after, Sherbert asked,”Will you marry me, my cinnamon bun?” and of course she couldn’t say no so she said,”Yes, I’ll marry you!” and then they went out to find Campari’s mother.

“Oh, Campari! You must be Sherbert! You came to tell me you want a wedding”. So shortly after, the wedding begins and all Sherbert and Campari’s families and friends came. And they lived happily ever after.
