Belle was up to her whimsical antics once again. Having masterfully crafted a birdhouse using human materials, her confidence had swelled. Convinced that her prowess extended far beyond avian abodes, she eagerly embraced the challenge of designing a new gathering hall for the fairies’ grand occasions. While her fellow tinker fairies were likely to conjure a modest hall fashioned from the mundane timber and, at best, a hint of daring velvet, Belle harboured a grand vision. Envisioning a dome-shaped hall entirely composed of frosted glass, she hatched a plan with the assistance of Willow, the adept winter fairy and a seasoned window tinting expert.
Embracing this architectural endeavour with unbridled enthusiasm, Belle embarked on the meticulous journey of sourcing materials. Her first stop was the frosty realm of fairy land, where Willow introduced her to an array of glass options, meticulously explaining how each could be artfully shaped to construct the envisioned dome. Willow even extended a favourable pricing arrangement, but Belle’s unyielding resolve remained unshaken. Firmly convinced that the fairy resources fell short of her aspirations, she realised the imperative of once again venturing into the human world.
Her wings carried her straight to a store she had previously passed, the very company offering office decorative window glass near Melbourne. The establishment surpassed her expectations. Brimming with all the necessary supplies, it was presided over by a fairy who not only comprehended Belle’s creative vision but also enhanced and embellished it. The knowledgeable fairy elucidated the additional advantage of frosted glass—its capacity to mitigate heat and curtail cooling expenses, an indispensable feature during the scorching fairy land summers. Belle was promptly captivated by the notion and invested in a stockpile of glass that stretched the boundaries of her budget. Laden with her precious cargo, she took flight, homeward bound, eager to commence her audacious project.
Once again, Belle thanked her fairy luck that the businesses she needed weren’t too far from her, making all her tinkering projects possible.
