Once upon a time,
there lived a girl who lived her life constantly trying to please others.
And when others were happy, so was she.
As days went by, she felt pieces of her fading away
And though her eyes went cold,
she kept her smile for everyone to see.
One day, she fell into a little hole in the ground,
where she met a fairy who felt sorry for her and so she asked,
‘Dear child, if I could grant you one wish to make yourself happy, what will it be?’
The girl, surprised by this question, blinked once, twice and bit on her lips.
But slowly, she opened her mouth and began to speak.
With bated breath, the fairy waited to hear her wish.
… Her wish, what could it be?
