Hi everyone. NVaughn7 is still on a break, so I thought I’d give this one a go. Enjoy 😀
The Funniest Flower
By Leenna Naidoo
“Are you laughing at me?”
“Yes,” giggled the two. “You’re the funniest flower ever! So droopy, with such a face! You’ll be stuck in a pot at the back. We’re gonna be on the bridal table.”
I hung my head, wishing I was fragrant and fragile like them. I sighed, longing for the sun. I watched him all day. None of the other flowers here were like me. I drooped even more. Why couldn’t I be in the sun anymore?
“Ssh! Here’s the bride!”
I turned my head to the beautiful angel. She picked me up, saying, “This one! I love sunflowers. I don’t care what granny says.”
She placed me gently among some green leaves. “Stunning!”
I was carried into warm light, just like my sun. Lightning flashed. Then, I was thrown into the air and caught by soft hands. “I’m next!”
I’d made a new bride. I smiled, holding my head high.
