I thought up a story about a merchant family that made their living by traveling and trading along the silk road. The main character is Aydan, a Turkish name meaning little fire. She's the oldest in a family of five other siblings. After her father dies, she takes up his business to support her aging mother and younger brothers and sisters. I thought it would be sweet for her to carry a little strawberry tree with her to remind her of home.
