Frances, at age 9, she saw fairies by a waterfall behind her house. Nobody but Frances could see them.
Frances decides to tell her cousin, Elsie that was visiting for the war. She also told her mom but she didn't believe her. Eventually, the adults teased them about seeing fairies.
After being teased for awhile, Elsie and Frances decided to take a photograph. They needed to paint paper fairies and take a picture with Frances in it at the beck.
The moral is that it's never too late to tell the truth.
The adults stopped teasing them but the photo eventually spread around the world. It some how fell into he hands of Arthur Conan Doyle or the the creator of Sherlock Holmes. Like Frances, he believed in fairies and longed to see one.
Frances and Elsie were interviewed by many people including Arthur Conan Doyle. The interviews and pictures were included in newspapers. It became more serious than they thought it would become and they never told the truth.
