Once upon a time, in a corner of The Green Forest, there lived a certain wood-nymph.
She was generally a happy sort of creature,
though she was rather lonely. You see, there weren't very many of the faerie folk in that part of the Forest, and the little dryad didn't have any friends.
But one day, a pixie spied her from behind a tree, and wanted to get acquainted.
The wood nymph was shy at first, not being used to strangers.
But she politely agreed to shake hands, and they went walking down the lane.
Feeling rather dancey, they twirled their way through the woods.
Then they played hide and seek...
picked wild flowers...
and had a tea party.
They decided to be friends.
