[REVISE] Blue B and the Firelies Tale

The more Blue B walking around in her journey, the more she finds precious experiences. On this day, she meets with generous elder woman who tell her very precious tale.

There was once a kind yet blind little girl living alone at the beautiful riverbank. Plenty of people come everyday to enjoy the view and relieve their bad feeling. It was always that blind little girl who listen to them patiently and gave them a wide bright smile when the visitor about to home. That was give them deep impression and for the girl, the visitor are bless gift to her. Because of them, she never feels alone and listening to them is like crossing to the bridge from her dark surrounding to the bright beautiful world.
Meanwhile, the riverbank’s beauty will be nothing when night comes. People even unable to see their own hands due to the blackness. That is the time for the little girl feeling lonely the most. Every night she prays for the morning to come early, so she will have another friend to talk to.

It was one dead of the night, she visited by Pixy Queen who deliver unwillingful message. The Pixy Queen said that she was about to die. But she will rewarded by heaven for her longing to listen to the people who come to her by receiving three wills in order and one day extra to make her wills reality.
Even though the Little Girl was very upset but she tried to be tough and smile when revealing her wills.
Firstly, she wants to see by her own eyes the place she live at for her lifetime.
Secondly, she wants to meet and talk to the visitors who come by for the last time and saying goodbye properly.
The third one she has not figure out yet so she only asked for the two first.

What a precious gift that the Little Girl finally see the beauty of her home place.
She smiled and said to herself that no wonder many visitors come every day and what they told were so true.

It’s very beautiful indeed.
However, when she told the visitor that she was about to leaving the place, it saddened them, but she made a promise.

‘I will come back here as a light. If you come here at night and see the light, that is me. So you can tell me everything as usual, I will listen and help you to relieve the pain.’

The promise is actually came from nowhere she could think and just for reassuring the visitors but Pixy Queen took it as the last gift for the Little Girl.

After that day, visitor no longer see the girl around, instead of tiny light who flying around when the night comes. That was her unconditional last wills, she wants to be a light for that place then the visitor can visit everytime even in the night.
Nowdays, if the surrounding still pure with greenery and river also clear, you can find these tiny light by singing

“fireflies, fireflies, come here this water is sweet that water is bitter, fireflies, fireflies, come here.” *
