The Time Garden

There once was a little girl who had boundless imagination, and exploring was one of her favorite things to do. Every object in the house that caught her eye had a brilliant story of its own. 

One day, the little girl’s father brought home an antique cuckoo clock from Germany. The girl was captivated by the strange and exotic new clock. She could not understand how it worked without batteries, or any kind of electric power.

She was so curious that she decided to give it a closer look that night, after her parents went to bed, and she had the whole house to herself. 

Cuckoo, cuckoo . . . cuckoo. 

When the clock struck its final cuckoo at midnight, she climbed up the wall to take a closer look and was surprised to find a strange, red-haired little fairy inside, winding up the clockwork. The girl cried out in surprise and fell flat on her back. 

At that moment, she realized that her house had transformed into something different, something that looked like the exotic new clock from Germany. Just as she recovered her senses, she caught a glimpse of the red-haired fairy dashing away. The girl started to run after the fairy, and soon found herself in a world of fantasy and dreams. 

As she continued her journey, she saw a series of beautiful worlds one after the other, each full of mystery and allure. The girl and her fairy friend continued their adventure until she finally encountered the doorway back to reality.
