Croakie And Cutie

Jannina and Johanna Undershroom were twins, but sometimes even their mother had doubts about her two girls being siblings. Both were born with the fine green skin of the meadow pixies of the land, but the similarity ended there. Jannina was a real beauty, while the same inherited features became somewhat distorted on Johanna’s broad, froglike face… so much that their kinsfolk started calling them „Cutie” and „Croakie”. As the two girls grew, yet another difference became painfully obvious, though… that Jannina’s dreamlike traits covered a selfish and arrogant character, while plain Johanna was a nice, pleasant and helpful soul. 
Croakie One day the twins were doing their usual rounds in the woods, when they heard some feeble moaning from under a parasol mushroom. The moaner was a tiny and ancient man, and everybody well versed in the magical lore knows that such tiny and ancient men are usually powerful magicians in disguise. Furthermore, our learned readers also know that said tiny and ancient men usually ask for some favour, then they duly punish anyone answering their pleas in a high and mighty manner, while they fabulously reward the meek who lend them an ear and two hands.
Cutie The tiny person under the mushroom was an exemplary specimen of his kind, and so were the girls. Jannina answered his begging with a shrill and cheeky laughter, while Johanna just smiled and rolled up her sleeves… and later, when they returned to the village, their people just stood around and speechlessly stared at them. Because „Croakie” was a beautiful meadow pixie now, while „Cutie” wore some bright scars that disfigured her smooth beauty… as if their respective characters had been openly written on their small otherworldly faces.
