May Flowers Monster 11

  • Young Kai Joo looked forward to the springtime, when she could display her cherry blossoms in full bloom. She felt particularly pretty when all of her branches were covered in pink, and never mourned the fact that they would eventually fall to the ground and be replaced by vibrant green leaves in only a week or two. Kai Joo’s brilliant display of blossoms also attracted a trio of butterflies who’d visit her each day, and perform a dazzling dance as they flew in front of her face, as a display of appreciation for bringing her blossoms to the local garden. It’s important to note that the butterflies eventually inspired the young Splotch Monster to learn some dance moves as well.
