My life as a pixie? It’s more fun than you’d imagine. First, I can fly! Who wouldn’t want to do that? Flying is probably the best part of my daily life. My ears are superior to the other pixies, and they help me zoom in and out of the flowers when I visit Maggie, the local herb collector. I usually visit Maggie once a day, and while I’m there, I pick up the special herbs that I use to create poultices at the clinic where I work. I use the poultices to treat the worker bees‘ wings that are injured during flight. You see, we take care of the bees by planting flowers for them. Once the flowers are grown, the bees drink their nectar and collect their pollen. Sometimes bees are injured while doing this, or their wings just get overworked. So they come see me at the clinic, and I help them heal.
Since we help the bees in more ways than one, they give us enough honey so we can survive the colder months. The cold months were coming soon, and I hated them. I couldn’t visit Maggie as often as I liked because of the cold.
We have a huge nesting area nestled in a grove of trees. The bees love it here because there is a Lot of room to plant flowers. Everyone here has their job. Workers ride the bees and guide them to the best flowers that are ripe and ready, nurses work at the clinic, and nursery workers help tend to the baby bees and make sure they have enough food to help them grow. We also have gatherers, like Maggie, who collect things that are useful from the woods around us. This is a dangerous job because you can be seen by humans. Only the fastest pixie’s are gatherers. Even though I am one of the fastest pixies here, I was able to land a job working with the bees because of my ability to make such good poultices. I spent many hours with Maggie, perfecting this method, so that I could work in the clinic. Everyone here has their job. We all work together to accomplish great things.
