The fairies lived in a tree. The tree was as big as a pyramid for the fairies, but not for us. The friendly bugs were nice to the fairies. They looked like little people but with wings and bug stuff. The little people were friendly like the friendly bugs. The little people were real humans, just tinier. They wore plant clothes and had no wings.
The tree was covered in velvety green moss, which was so comfortable and soft that you could take a rest on it. The bark was reddish brownish, strong, and looked and smelled like the bark on a Christmas tree. The roots were little zigzags cracking into dirt spreading out around the tree.
The holes were circles that you could live in. The holes had big windows and doors, and porches. The fairies, bugs and little people could climb up the tree and into the holes. There was amber colored sap at the bottom of the tree. When the fairies were hot they could go into the sap which was like a sticky swimming pool.
The leaves were like hammocks that the fairies could rest on. They were always making a rainbow of red, orange and yellow as if it were Fall.
