Ellie, with pearly tears trickling down her cheeks, ran to her bedroom and threw herself on the bed. Another horrendous day at school; the bullies were relentless and she sported the bruises to prove it.

Grabbing a tome, Ellie dived into the wondrous world depicted on the pages. Enveloped in the magical lands of fairies and elves, her imagination soared and she began to find peace. The agony dissolved and wrapped in enchantment, she smiled.
