"Snippet" -- a small piece or brief extract
By Tonnye Williams Fletcher
Betony’s mom sent her to her gran’s house across the field for eggs. Spring had sprung; all the flowers looked so beautiful. She skipped through the meadow, stopping to gather clover, honeysuckle, and wild strawberries. She braided them into a beautiful flower crown. She placed it atop her curly red head, looking fairy-ish as she did. Just as it touched her head, she felt a jolt. A moment later, she awoke. When she did, a fairy-for-sure stood before her -- a foot tall, but so beautiful! Sparkly -- from the inside out . . .weird. . . . She had a matching flower circlet on her own mound of ginger curls. She reached for Betony’s hand and they frolicked in the meadow until she heard mom calling her name. She let go the fairy’s hand, rushing home, forgetting the eggs and not caring about breakfast. She never passed a meadow again without remembering her fairy friend.
