She has been happy there but lonely, and knows it is time for her to find her family, for they must miss her too. Her escape, with the help of the trees through the dark scary forest, makes her wonder if she had made the right decision to leave. Then she finds herself in a beautiful glen where she meets her tiny sister, who tells Sylvan that she is part of a wonderful fairy kingdom where she had loving parents and very mischievous twin little brothers. She is fitted with her first wings and learns to fly and dance, as all fairies do. The mysterious plot continues as she finds that she was one of three fairy children lost as babies. The village is happy to have her back and celebrate but the sad parents of the other two lost babies make her feel guilty, and she resolves to do something about the lost children.
