  • Knowing her, or just meet her, give one a glimpse of what the boundless universe has to offer in the ways of life, in addition to those known in advance. Even here on earth, dolls sometimes species up that you had not dreamed of, and there are countless life forms here.

    She said her name was Felicia. But there was an undertone of that the name was assumed, for the sake of the people who were lucky to meet her. Although she was only half as big as a human baby, she was a mature woman. Elegant as a ballerina and adventurous dressed in rose petals, which gave her an elf look.

    Perhaps because few actually knew what elves looked like, most people were inclined to take such a comparison. But she was not an elf. She described herself as a kind of fairy, but from a completely different solar system than anyone we knew. The galaxy, the Milky Way, which also includes the Earth, was situated several galaxies from the galaxy, she came from.

    "How can you travel so far out, Felicia, and still look so young? We have not yet invented anything, which can travel at the speed of light, and it is probably necessary, with the totally unreasonable distances."

    "Ohhh, the speed of light I don't count on, it’s far too slow. There are probably only talking about measly 3000.000 kilometers per second, if I remember right. No, I travel with a speed that is even faster than thoughts because I travel outside time and space. And then distances makes no sense. Thinking in terms of distances is old-fashioned. It is the senses, which limits the imagination, because you lose yourself in their immediate reports. You forget so easily that you can look at, and photographing, a star in the night sky that might have exploded a thousand years ago, although you have learned about it in school. You consider it carelessly as more theory than plain reality.

    Felicia sighed, "But I'm a little confused, and have a need to ease my heart, literally. Although I don't have a heart. Where you people wear a heart, I have a vivid rose bud. I feel it can bloom at any time, but I have felt that as long as I can remember, and sometimes it makes me a little discouraged I know it unfolds lavishly when the time is mature, and then I will sprinkle cool, and infinitely beautiful petals all over your so-called Milky Way, so you can walk there hand in hand without burning your feet onto too hot stars. The views are spectacular, and giving you the opportunity to expand your knowledge. Furthermore, the petals of my full blooming rose will smell so breathtaking that you begin to think in an entirely new direction than you've grown accustomed to. But for your youngest children, it will seem quite naturally."
