“Look mother! The Wishing Flower!” cried the little girl as she ran through the field where hundreds of dandelions stood proudly under the sun, waiting to be wished upon.
She picked one among them, taking extreme care as if she was afraid to hurt them if she was too harsh and closed her eyes earnestly making a wish.
Alice stood there witnessing her daughter blow the petals after making the wish, curious as what the kid could have probably wished for.
“What did you wish for?” she asked once she opened her eyes, unable to contain her curiosity anymore, expecting to hear about wanting toys or chocolate.
“I wished to be a good girl so you don’t send me to school as punishment while playing with my younger sister” answered the kid with an innocence that brought a smile on her face.
