Page 39 – To this Princess April Morning-Glory said nothing

by Kelley Smoot Garrett

So what is a little fairy girl to do, when confronted with the massive, hulking, evilness as personified by a wicked King who keeps true loves apart? Why get busy doing a Good Deed, of course!

A Good Deed is so much more than the act itself, whatever action may occur. The power of a Good Deed lies in the purity of intent with which the deed is undertaken. For a little fairy princess possessing a wisdom beyond her mortal years, that means selflessly acting to reunite two people in a love to which Princess April will bear witness.

My good will is a strong Tower around me.
I now change all enemies into friends.
All inharmony into harmony.
All injustice into justice.

Florence Scovel Shinn, c. 1938
“The Magic of Intuition”

In Letitia’s time, and specifically in her family, great emphasis was placed on being of service to others.
