mango-dresses

The sun shone high those few summer days
Left us in a song, wide-eyed haze
It shone like gold

Misty Rose: Have you picked a dress, Mango?

Mango: I brought something from home that should work.

Tea Rose: Are you kidding?! You need something new! Something fancy!

Mango: Ehh, I am not fancy.

Tea Rose:  But you could be! Just for a day! Oh it would be so fun! Let me make you over. I’ve gotten much better since the Cherry incident.

Cherry Blossom: That was pretty bad.

Tea Rose: Hush you.

Mango: It is very kind, but I do not have the mon-nee for something extravagant.

Tea Rose: Mother has already offered.  It’s our treat.

Mango: Are you sure?

Tea Rose: Totally!
