There was a legend about a certain flower. It had the power to cure people that needed it, but also the power to kill those who are not worthy. The town's people have this flower in this certain garden, where in the center is the Blue Flower. It had big pedals and small thorns, protected by the people. No one was able to pick the flower because there were no other flowers just like it. It was extraordinarily beautiful and it glowed in the dark softly.

"Mother, are you feeling better?" A little girl was giving her ill mother her daily soup. The family were the leaders of the small village. The father was killed in a war with a nearby village and the wife fell sick days after. People thought it was a sign that she wasn't capable of being their leader. "Mother, mother take your soup!" The girl was only 7, not understanding what was wrong. She heard of the leagends but didn't go for the flower because she knew there were exelent doctors.

Four doctors have tried with all their might to save the mother, but all failed. The mother was dying. The little girl, on her last hope, went to the garden and went straight for the blue flower. The elders told her to pick wisely, it grows once every hundred years. The flower could save or take the mothers life away. "Holy Flower, please save my mother with your mercy and cleanse her soul." The little girl picked the flower carefully and put the flower in a jar with water. When she went back home that night, she left it by the bowl for the soup and went to bed.

The next morning, she was excited, ran to the kitchen and set the soup up. She put the flower in the soup and let it sit for five minutes. She then took it out and grinded it into smaller pieces, mixing it into the soup. The soup was given an aroma that was sweet, but had a hint of tanginess. She brought up the soup up to her mother as usual, and hoped and prayed that it would help heal her. When the mother took the first sip, there were sparks and magic in the air surrounding her. The soup was dropped and the mother was healed, at first.

The mother was furious, "It may have helped me, but it tasted terrible!" The mother slapped the girl across the face, but as soon as she did that, she started to crumble to the ground. Screaming in agony, the mother cried and begged for mercy. The legend was true, the flower had judged the mother and it turned out that she was not worthy to be in the world.  The little girl was put to live with her Aunt and Uncle's house. They loved her dearly and knew that the mother wasn't the best.

The girl has now grown up and is the new leader. She treats everyone fairly and found love on her own. Her family that she had left was proud of her and told her to always chase her dreams.
