  • It was the next day, and Esther and May were at Esther's house, enjoying a sweet snack. " How are we gonna tell our parents about going out for the night? You know they would never let that happen." May asked Esther. Esther bit into a cookie. " Well I told my mom that I will be sleeping over at your house... So why don't you tell your parents? " May pondered at this, then smiled. " Yeah!" She responded. " That is a great idea!" May stood up, and started running to the door. " I'll be right back."
    "Why does she always keep me waiting?" Esther whispered, then leaned back in her chair disappointed. A few minutes later May had shown up exclaiming that her dad and mom believed her. " Did you tell her I'm sleeping over? If so, then you ruined the plan." May hesitated trying to retrace her memory. " Uh. I believe that I didn't tell them that." Esther glanced at the clock. It was 3:00 pm. " We should be going. " Esther said. " MOM I'M GOING TO MAY"S BYE!" " Alright darling just make sure that you're back by tomorrow. Also don't stay up late, it is a school night." Esther and May paused. " A school night?" May muttered. Esther nodded. " Yeah... We can't do this in one day! " May grabbed a cookie and bit into it. " We'll just have to take risks."
    " Risks?" Esther shook her head." Lets just bring our book bags and get there in time." May frowned. " No! I didn't want to go to school!" Esther stood up, and grabbed her book bag, which was right next to the door, as well as a book bag May brought so her parents didn't think that she wasn't going to school. Esther picked it up and padded over to the pantry. She soon came out with a bag of snacks and water, which she stuffed into the book bag. " We need to be prepared. That's why I have all of this food and water, so we don't become thirsty or starve to death. " May grabbed her book bag, then opened the door. A gust of wind instantly knocked her over. May toppled to the ground, a little dizzy.
    " Maybe we should bring coats... " May said, her voice muffled by her sleeve. Esther ran over to her and helped her up from the greenish carpet. " Yeah... A coat would be nice, I'll let you borrow one of my small ones I grew out of. " May brushed off her coat and announced. " Well for being dyslexic you're pretty smart." Esther blushed. " Heh heh... thanks..." May looked up at her blue as a river eyes with her green as a forest eyes and smiled. " Your welcome. " With that small conversation, they set off, to find the magical flower known as....
    The Rainbow Flower.
