Small Persons With Wings

Mellie has a friend that is really small and has wings. His name is Fidius. Really. She’s not making it up, and to prove it she’s promised the kids in her class that she will bring him to school. When she tells Fidius this plan he is none too pleased. “I am not your servant. I am your secret.” In the night, he disappears leaving Mellie with nothing to take to school but a china figure…of a small person with wings. Makes you wonder if he was real doesn’t it? Maybe Mellie just has a really good imagination.

The kids are not kind about Mellie trying to pass off a china figure as a real fairy. “How’s the fake fairy?” they ask her on the bus. They call her names, they push her head in the drinking fountain; they are just plain mean. Mellie gets a second chance when her parents inherit her Grandpa’s house and they move. She decides to leave her imagination behind and move forward with just the facts. The problem? More small persons with wings! Author: Ellen Booraem
