A little mock Wishing Tree. This is so artfully and cleverly done, I might make one! It would look lovely on a dresser or windowsill. I love that The Wishing Tree appears in both Marco's notebook and in one of Celia's tents, another link between their unique and bittersweet relationship.
"All over the tents, small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies. The waiting crowd quiets as it watches this display of illumination. Someone near you gasps. A small child claps his hands with glee at the sight."
