It all started when I was five years old. Every night at the same time, I would see little lights at my window. I called them stars but I grew up to learn they were fairies. I was living in a children's home and was kept in an attic. It was freezing! The fairies would keep me company. We would sit together and tell stories, until one day one story actually came true. I awoke one Sunday morning and my cold, dim room was full of light and warmth. I knew it was the fairies. They're great!
