One day, he called them over and told them, “I will give each of you a flower pot with some lovely flower bud inside. You will take care of them until they grow and bloom.

At first, the angels were all really industrious trying their best to take care of the flower pots. After a week, the Knowledge Genie still had not come yet. The young angels kept waiting and waiting. They started to feel tired and did not want to continue anymore. Lily was the only one who kept on completing her duty. Other angels looked at Lily and made fun of her.
They said, “You’re so silly! However, hardworking you are, the Knowledge Genie will never know. He must be so busy that he forgot about us!” To this, Lily replied, “Don’t care about me. He can come whenever he wants and I hope that he will be able to see theses beautiful flowers when he arrives.” Then, Lily watered the flowers. She did not care about her friends’ words.
And finally, the Knowledge Genie came back to check how the angels were doing. When he looked at the withered flower pots of the angels, he understood everything. Lily’s pot was the only pot which had colorful lively flowers. He felt very satisfied and gave her a new pure white coat and a pair of beautiful sparkling wings.
The other angels felt embarrassed that they did not finish their duties. So, all of them apologized to the Knowledge Genie and also to Lily for laughing at her. You may also like to read, The Little Girl And The Tooth Fairy.
