I PUT MY back against the door and let out an air of nervousness. The Light
Faerie hadn't said there was any meetings going on at the moment. I took a deep
breath and turned around and opened the door again. I saw all the throne lined
up around each other. The Earth Faerie wearing a green ragged dress with green
ivy draped around her shoulders and a few birds in her mahogany tangled curls
to her knees, her soft grass green eyes watching the other faeries. Next to
her the Fire Faerie with a dress that looked like a garment of flames was flowing
off of her, her flaming red hair seemed to dance like fire. Her brown eyes,
almost red watched the rest, her temper burning through them. The Light Faerie
was next, she had long light bleach coloured blonde hair and what seemed to
be light yellow eyes and a long gown of yellow and white mixed with gold gems
dotting it, she was beautiful and looked silent. The Air Faerie next to her
had white hair and a long white ruffled dress outlined in blue, and her light
blue eyes shined with kindness.
The Water faerie was next, her mermaid
tail sat like legs in the chair and she wore two pink shells like a bikini.
Her long tumbling blonde curls wove around her big blue watery eyes of kindness.
Then there was the Queen Faerie, wearing a silk garment covered in white and
violet gemstones, and a crown to match, her wrist were covered in bracelets
and one of her fingers wore a lovely gold ring with a little diamond of a violet
in the center. Her long straight violet hair reached her ankles and in a split
second she blinked when I opened the door and then her eyelids lifted to reveal
gigantic deep purple eyes shining with years of wisdom and her big heart shined
through her eyes. She was lovely beyond words, a sight to behold, but what caught
my eyes was what was next to her. The Dark Faerie hard short rugged purple hair
with highlights of green, her skin was deathly pale and she had purple eyes
with specks of green in them, they weren't like the Queen Faerie's eyes they
were shallow and mean. Big hoopy green and purple earrings dangled from her
sharp pointy ears. She wore big jangly bracelets to and her arms were thin and
knobbly. She wore big platform green and purple platform shoes and big purple
and green bellbottoms and a tight-fitted purple and green tanktop. She wore
a purple collar around her neck with spikes coming out of it. Her lips were
green. And unlike all the other faeries beautiful angel wings, her wings were
purple and green and dragon-like. Her teeth were like vampires. The Queen Faerie's
voice interrupted my dreams.
"Someone in Faerieland has been planning
something, something very evil," The Queen Faerie announced, her voice was powerful
and made you want to listen to it.
"I think I know who it is," The Fire
Faerie snapped, her temper getting away with her,"It's the Dark Faerie...."
She pointed a finger at the Dark Faerie. A mumble of 'I agrees' rippled through
"But you can't just point fingers," the
Earth Faerie purred, "You never know maybe it wasn't the Dark Faerie," The Earth
Faerie seemed so innocent and kind compared to the other faeries.
"Yes!" The Dark Faerie growled her voice
dark and just made a chill run up my spine, "You're always blaming everything
on me! It's always me! ME! ME! ME! Just because I'm the Dark Faerie!!!!"
"But you always do everything bad!" the
Light Faerie spoke up, her voice barely above a whisper, "I mean you're the Dark Faerie...."
"But, I'm so busy helping Jhudora my
apprentice with her cloud, that I haven't been able to plan anything evil!"
Admitted the Dark Faerie.
"It can't be her," the Air Faerie piped
up,"I've invited her a few times to tea, but she can't come because she's so
busy with her Jhudora... her sweet little Jhudora!!"
"So there!" cried the Dark Faerie, "You
know so now you can't blame me!!!!" cried the Dark Faerie.
"Then who is it?" The Earth Faerie asked
looking at everybody. The Queen Faerie rubbed her head.
"I must go have lunch... I get a headache
if I don't eat," she said,"You all are dismissed." They all stood up from their
thrones and vaporised. Then I saw the Queen Faerie coming for the door. I quickly
dove behind the door, she opened it squeezing me into a little ball. I stopped
breathing and watched her as she paused and looked around. She looked around,
she could sense me, she gave a deep breath and mumbled something that sounded
like 'Your sixth sense is turning on you in your old age' and then walked off
down the hallway to her dining room. I opened the door to the room hoping maybe
there was some secret door to the Queen Faerie's room. I looked around at the
thrones and I stepped forward to the gem covered Queen Faerie's throne, suddenly
the floor fell out from under me and I found myself falling down a long tunnel.
Suddenly I crashed into the hard metal floor. I shook my head and looked up,
metal bars. I was in a... cell? I ran up to the bars and tried to jiggle them,
I tried to squeeze my face through, no success.
I was... arrested?
A big faerie Grundo walked up to my cage
with a slick smile on his face.
"No one spy on Faerie Queen!" He chuckled
and I glared at him then at his belt, the keys. I smiled.
"Really, huh? Well, you know what? I
know a secret about the Queen Faerie...." I looked at his name tag,"Roochip,
she thinks that you're... lean closer," I began to lower my voice into a whisper.
He leaned closer the the bars.
"She thinks that," I yanked the keys
from his belt, "You should be less trusting of you prisoners. I jumped up and
kicked my hind hooves in his face and I reached my hoof out of the bars and
unlocked my cell. I threw the key into the cell and closed the door, it immediately
locked. No one could get in it. I turned to run when I smashed into something....
Escape to the Shadow
I looked up to see the biggest faerie Grundo I'd ever seen. It reached down
for me its strong grip around my shoulders. It squeezed, I wriggled free from
its grasp and dove through its legs and down the hall. I skidded to a stop and
ran out the door and up the stairs, taking two by a gallop. I heard many guards
thundering behind me, so close at my heels. I looked around frightened for an
escape. I had to think high for my next escape. I pushed my hind hooves hard
off the ground sending me catapulting into the air. I planted all my hooves
on the two different walls of the staircase. Implanted far above the stairs.
The guards quickly filed under me thundering along as they went, after I heard
their footsteps disappearing and let myself drop to the stairs. I galloped up
the stairs trying to find a doorway, but there was none to be seen, the staircase
just seemed to keep going and going. I looked around confused and leaned against
the wall, suddenly head first the brick vaporised into thin air, I went falling
head first down a long tunnel. At first I thought I was heading back to the
cell for sure, but I hit a tunnel at the end of the drop and went swerving to
the right then dropped again and kept swerving and dropping. Then I was thrown
out onto a soft cloud floor. I looked around. The room was beautiful. A silk
mattress and sheeted canopy bed and beautiful pearl wardrobe and drawer. A tidy
fireplace and a window next to it. The Queen Faerie's room... I thought.
Then I felt a strong hand grip my shoulder,
I turned around. The guard Grundos - AGAIN! I bit the hand and heard a high
pitched scream as it released my shoulder, I jumped up and ran for the window,
A Grundo jumped in front of me and threw me sprawled in front of the fire place.
I grabbed a the marble shovel and whacked the guards out of my way. Then the
biggest Skeith I had ever seen stood in front of me, towering over me covering
me in a shadow. I gulped and stepped back, falling into the arms of a Grundo
Still with the shovel in my hand I whacked the gigantic Skeith, nothing happened.
Gosh... I thought, The Queen Faerie sure does have good guards, but....
I poked the Skeith in one of his big
bulging eyes and dove for safety under his legs as he let out a little shriek
and covered up his eye.
They sure are dumb. I ran for the window,
I only had a little time to think, before all the faerie Grundos stopped helping
the Skeith and came to catch me. The sun's worst enemy... the sun's worst
enemy... darkness... I thought hurrying my brain to think fast, I looked
around for darkness and I saw the shadow of a Grundo coming up from behind me
on a cloud next to the window. "A shadow!" I said. I jumped from the windowsill
into the Grundo's shadow.
I didn't fall on my face again, instead
I landed softly on the cloud, like little faeries had stood me upright as I
fell. I looked at the tower up and down. It was the hidden tower, the tower
many owners looked for all their lives. I stepped inside the building. Immediately
I was overwhelmed by over stocked shelves overflowing with the wand of nova,
carrot blade, and many other incredibly rare items. I scurried silently between
the shelves, looking for some clue. I had reached the last shelf and was bewildered.
Everything was just... rare and nothing to do with Giputore. I walked past the
last following items, but what caught my eye was a book. What was a book doing
I picked it up and blew the dust off
it, The title read: Giputore's Scripture. Giputore! Gemini's planet. I opened
it and skimmed through it, all the pages were blank. I turned to the first page
and in fancy dainty cursive letters these words were written:
Fetch me a plushie,
Fetch me a jewel,
And with this magic wand and this potion,
Over all Neopia I shall rule.
I read it over puzzled. Fetch me a plushie,
fetch me a jewel. Some one who gives quests... the Snow Faerie? No... combine
all the clues, Bronzeya, combine all the clues, I thought. My mind was a
jumble of pictures.
Surrounded in purple and green, I reminded
myself. Then I remembered the Dark Faerie: her purple and green clothes and
her excuse about 'How she was teaching Jhudora...' JHUDORA! It struck
me. She was always asking pets to bring her items. It was Jhudora!!!! I quickly
set the book back on the shelf and it immediately turned into a crystal boomerang.
I quickly rushed out of the shop unnoticed and down the cloud street rushing
through the crowd of tourists; I pushed my way to Jhudora's cloud. I walked
up to the cauldron shaped building. The door opened miraculously by itself....
