5 years later
Jemima woke up one morning to the sound of birds chirping.
“Mom! It worked!” she called, throwing on a bright pink sweater and racing down the stairs.
“What worked, darling?” Jemima’s mother asked as she poured oatmeal into her daughter’s breakfast bowl.
“Don’t you hear it, Mom? The birds are chirping! Can’t you see the sun? The seeds WORKED! They really did!” Jemima threw open the kitchen door and ran outside, breathing in the fresh air. “After 5 years, the world is finally back to normal!” she murmured to herself.
