Once upon a time...

Once upon a time, there lived a girl. And while she and all the other residents of the GMT time zone were sleeping, a fairy arrived and with a flick of her wand, the world became white!

The snow settled and covered the plants in a cold white blanket...

And when the girl woke up, it was still snowing, and the world sparkled!

And the leaves of plants drooped with the heaviness of the snow...

The girl saw how her beautiful crystal, which in the summer had sparkled brightly, now swayed in the icy winds.

So she stayed indoors, snuggled up warmly in bed with a thick jumper and a classic novel for comfort.

She only watched the snow, taking photo with her beloved camera, from inside. It seemed beautiful yet treacherous.

And then, in a moment of courage, she opened up the window and let her hand feel the snow. Much to her surprise, she had caught the fairy!

But it was very cold out in the snow, so the girl let the fairy go, hearing the tinkling sound of metal chimes as the fairy flew away. And it continued to snow.
