Once upon a time, there lived a haggard old woman called Sally. Sally had wished for a kid for a very long time, but she couldn't have one cause she had no husband (being haggard and all).
So she made a wish under the stars and a fairy came.
Fairy took pity on her and gave a flower.
Fairy told her to water it everyday and her wish will come true. And true to her words, the flower blossomed and a kid appeared out of it.
Thumbelina grew up and learnt to fly.
I don't know what came over me, but there you have it. Lol, so... Anyone wish to continue it?
