Elf Adventure in Landlords Garden

A little boy and elfin queen Lily visit garden of landlords and meet with elves of the flower bed. Also they learn about difficult life of lilies and fate of Lily youngest sister.

evening time

In the small room, a weak kid is lying on the bed. He lies, has no rest, watches, his eyes are widely open, looking at the window, covered by a scarf: the scarf does not totally covers the window, he is able to see a little the piece of blue light strip of the sky..

- Paul, where are you looking? - the mother of a kid asked

- Yes, I'm seeing that strip. Mother, where is she from? What is it from? - said the kid. br />
- It is the moon sheds its light, Paul, I can close the window and the strip will disappear - Mom replied

- No, it is not necessary - I like it.

- Do not watch, Paul, rest better, - you are weak, you need to fall asleep.

- Mom, really I do not want to sleep, I'm in fever ... I won't rest, better tell me a fairy tale.

- What fairy tale should I tell you my child.

"Yet, you once told me about the little children living in the blooms, they are called elves: you said that in each blossom female or male elf lived and they rose up out of the blossoms each night and play, move, sing. Mother, what do you think about the oldest elf.

You said that they had a queen. Who is she?

- She has name Lily, because she lives in the very best lily of the universe. Flower elves bear names of flowers

"Dear Mom," Paul began to ask, "tell me something about those elves, I like to hear about them"

- No, Paul, it's too late to tell those stories, maybe tomorrow in the afternoon, but now it is time for you to sleep. This fairy tale is so long it will not allow you to fall asleep. Now I will  extinguish your candle, then you will fall asleep, and tomorrow you will rise healthy, then I will tell fairy tales, and everything will be well. Sleep, my darling!

Mother extinguished the candle, kissed Paul, saying "Good night", and  sat down on the chair near his bed with sewing in his hands and waited until he was asleep. But Paul did not sleep, he watched as Mama sew. Needle was glistening slowly and slowly ...

Then Paul started to look again at the clear strip that was shining from the window. He was thinking about his mother's fairy tales: "What a pity that my mother did not want now to tell me a fairy tale. It so boring. When will I fall asleep? ... And who is Lily? Is she so small like all the elves? Mom says that the elves are like little butterflies ... how tall is Lily? "Paul looked at the strip and thought about everything, thought so long ...

It seemed to him that the strip began to shiver and darken as if somebody covered it by its shadow.
Paul rose up a little and saw some creature similar to human being.At first he was afraid a little, then he started to understand that his fears were groundless -  Before him a little girl stood. She was pretty and had clear eyes, long silver curls. She wore a white transparent magical robe and a small golden crown was on her head. The girl had nice and colorful wings, like fairy butterfly that changes constantly its rainbow colors. In the hands of this girl there was flower of white lily that spread its fragrance on the whole house. Paul looked at the girl and subconsciously he knew that this was Queen Lily.
- Are you Lily? - he asked the girl.

- Yes, I am Lily. I heard you was interested to learn about me, so I came to you. Are you happy?

- Glad, very happy! Paul shouted and stretched both his hands to her.

Lily smiled  so sweetly and, the lunar strip became even more pink.

- Perhaps do you want to fly with me? - Lily asked Paul.

- How can I fly? Do I have such wings as yours? - Paul said. - I am; not able to fly.

- Well, then I'll take you into my hands.

"You ... you're so little, and I'm bigger than you, I'm hard."
"It's not dificult," Lelia said, and smiled again, then she touched Paul with her flower, and suddenly Paul felt that he was turned into a magical flower, into a pink poppy, Lily took him in her hand and quickly went from the house to the garden. All the flowers in the garden were leaning towards her and swung, and from them began to fly little kids - elves.

- Sleep, sleep! - said Lelia to them. "This night I do not have time to be with you."

The elves returned back into the flowers, the flowers closed and fell asleep.

- Well, Paul, where will we fly? Lily asked.

"Wherever you want," Paul answered, though he became a flower he could speak verbally.

- I will carry you to the garden of the landlords that is on the mountain: there are my sisters, younger lilies, maybe they will tell us something interesting.
And Lily flied to the heights very quickly, then she descended to the landlords large garden. In the garden there was a magnificent palace, in some windows of the palace one can see lights. It seems that the ladies did not sleep. But there was nobody in the garden. Lily stood just in the flower bed, and there were multitudes of white lilies. They stood quietly and did not rock.

"You are sleeping," Lily cried out to them, "and you do not hear that we are near. Rise up!" - and Lily touched them with her own flower.

Suddenly, all the lilies shook and a pale face of elf appeared from every flower.

"Excuse us, queen sister," they replied, "if you knew how late we were fallen asleep."

- "And why do you not go to sleep early? Who prevents you from sleeping?" Lily asked angry.

- Oh, we have not calm life in the days and nights. Oh, we are poor flowers!

- What happened with you? Why are you complaining?

- But where do we not get bored! In the afternoon we hunt us, people break our leaves, and sometimes  we lose our earthly existence , we are often cut by a sharp knife, carried  to the big house, to the landlords house and put in the water. Oh, sister, how many of us passed away and left the beloved world ... It was a holiday recently - how many of us were cut!

" My poor sisters," Lily said mournfully, and in her eyes were shone tears. - "But people should care about you when you have life in this garden."

- Oh, our life is not beautiful - our life is unhappy. How many of us stood in the garden, happiness-fate did not feel ... When in the darkness of night we are sleeping, Landlords, ladies and noblemen start their entertainment. Funny chants and loud musicians do not allow us to sleep until midnight ...

The poor lilies became silent.

When this large glass door was opened in the palace, a young lady came out, dressed in a nice white gown. She sat on the porch and somehow looked reluctantly at the garden filled by the moonlight.

"Oh, my head hurts," she said to herself, "I can not even sleep all night long!" And this is all because of boredom, I know.

What is my life in this village? I sit all day long, as if enchanted, I do not speak with anybody. Truly, in the evening, guests arrive. .. they are boring for me. But here everything makes upset : this garden, and this house, and flowers. ! If only lilies were more interesting - pink or colorful, and then ... , White flowers can be seen in every garden of landlords and surfs. And there is no delicacy in their fragrance. - And the lady went again to the palace, shutting the door in despair.

Lily felt pity on her unfortunate sisters.
"You are really miserable," she said to them, "and what should I do if I have no power to move you from here to different place?" I have no counsel for  you, my unfortunate one ...

Lily went silently near all lilies, staring at them mournfully, she stopped near some bush.

- Where is my youngest sister? - She asked, pointing to the empty place.

The lilies were again talking:

- Your sister is not here. She is blooming in other garden. Our lady She gave your sister to her maid Marianne for her sincere work in the summer time.

"I'll have to visit her" Lily said, and wanted to ask something else, but Paul wished to fly further. Lilies upset him by their stories.

- Well, then we'll get into a big city, maybe we'll have more fun there.
