“Close your eyes,” said the butterfly, “and wish me inside.”
Wanting to hold the beautiful creature, Keri closed her eyes and made the wish. Then POOF! There in front of her was, was.. ”What are you?” she asked.
“My name is Katie, some call me Kate, some call me Katherine,” the butterfly said with a smile. Her eyes twinkled with starlight. “But, usually when they say Katherine, they are”, she said, lowering her eyes, “a wee, little bit, mad at me.”
Katie jumped on Keri’s shoulder and whispered into her ear, “I am the butterfly girl and I make wishes come true.” She smiled and flew up on top of Keri’s hair, played with her hair and laughed. Peeking over Keri’s head, Katie said.
“You look funny upside down.”
“You make wishes come true?” Asked Keri.
She flew down and landed on Keri’s hand, Katie suddenly had a serious look on her beautiful butterfly face.
“Yes, but they don’t last long, because I am still learning. I get to practice on indoor recess days, when children play inside.” She smiled and then flew high into the room.
Kelly and Amy saw the butterfly and pointed at it, yelling to the teacher. “Look, Mrs. Vaughan, a bug! Make it go away, it will sting us!”
“No!” Keri yelled, “it is not a bug, it’s Katie, she makes wishes come true.”
Katie flew down in front of two of the children, zipped in and out and around them, sprinkled something sparkly on them. Mary and Kelly didn’t move, they just watched the beautiful sparkles move around them.
