In a Fix Excerpt:

It was a sunny day on Ahway Island, and colorful flowers were in full bloom everywhere. A gentle breeze rustled their colorful petals, making them seem like they were dancing a joyful dance.

Outside the cozy Ahway Island flower shop, Gabby delivery truck sat, listening the birds’ happy tunes and enjoying the warm sunshine. She was just waiting – she was all set for her deliveries with the florist, Jordan. Gabby really liked delivering flowers. Whenever she and Jordan arrived with their flower bunches, everyone’s faces lit up with huge smiles. Making others happy was one of the best things about her flower deliveries!

Usually, Gabby and Jordan had already zoomed away from the shop, on their way to deliver their flowers. But today was a little different. Right when Jordan was about to head out, the flower shop’s phone rang.
