Crucible anniversary gift

My preciousssssss

My preciousssssss

On a beautiful green island lives a shrine fairy with a really big heart. Her name is Guylty and she has a special gift of magic: she wriggles her delicate fingers in the air and pufff!!! little magic tins appear. They are full of jewels, toys, memories and love and no matter how often you open the tin the love inside always seems to grow and the jewels always sparkle.

Somehow the fairy knew exactly who this little RAPS was for and because she could also look into the souls of the intended owners and guess all their secret wishes she knew exactly what spells to put inside:

across the Thames from each other, 2 places i love :) Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, there is sparkle in all the right places

She knew the places H loved most in the big city on the big river and she felt it was exactly one year ago that H discovered she had room for more in her <3. H had discovered theatre could really be just as exciting as opera courtesy of one tall bearded actor in a ratty shirt. The fairy knew she just had to point to the signs and H would remember that she liked the actor because he could be very serious and passionate about his art but he also had a big heart 🙂

That smile outshines even the glitter-ball

Both H and the fairy had a weakness for black leather so she giggled to herself when she chose the right photo for the shrine. And later, while looking at the RAPS H wiped a secret tear at the memory of tortured Proctor but she suddenly also remembered the warm and calm smile and gentle words the actor responded with when she told him how touched she had been by the play.

The fairy even knew exactly which poster H liked most and magically let it appear on the Old Vic wall which she had shrunk with her potion into the little silver tin. She said to herself: ‘must have lashes, H really likes the lashes!’.

And with a last look at the little treasure chest (‘ggg’):

From the tears on stage to the smiles outside :-) (more sparkle in the right places)

she thought:’ i think she will have that anniversary celebration after all! ‘

And so she did!!!  When H discovered the magic tin she did a happy dance and thought to herself:’That fairy is really cool, she can guess all your secret wishes better than the genie in a bottle! And i can probably rub the tin just like i would the magic bottle, can’t i?’  😀
