They were very quiet and that was a sign of trouble brewing.

Martha stepped outside to look for them and found them at the back of the yard, hands hidden behind their back and eyes brimming with suppressed glee and mischief.

Before she could ask them what they were up to, they brought their hands forward and opened the jars they held in them, releasing a lot of butterflies, which flitted in the air creating a rainbow.
