I gripped my fist so hard I was afraid I was going to start bleeding.
That little…insect! She got on my nerves…this was too much. She had been spreading rumors again that I had been drinking at the nectar well.
When was this nonsense going to stop?!
I flapped my sparkling wings and headed towards my house.
As soon as I got in, I sat down on my bed, trying to think of what to I could do.
I slumped dejectedly.
This could go no further. The rumors had to be eradicated.
As a fae of the Imperial Flora Court, I have to be pert and to the point about my duty. I stood up and went into my bedroom.
A few minutes later, I emerged, wearing my best court dress. The rose petals felt soft against my skin, and amber drops glittered on my red slippers.
I stuck my Royal Court hair pins through the elegant (I hoped) bun that now graced my head.
They alerted others to my status. Fine, they basically screamed a “BACK OFF !” message.
Opening the door again, I took off; and flew towards Queen Petunia’s Court.
