"I dare you Lily402! I bet you can't!" I screamed, "Like
I said acaras, especially speckled ones, are braver!!!!"
"Ya right, Kacheeks, ESPECIALLY spotted ones, are the
bravest!" my sister responded.
"Then go on, go to the Snow Faerie's house and knock
on her door. I want to see you become dinner!" I really didn't want this,
but I knew she wouldn't go.
"Fi...Fine I'll go to her house and knock on her d...door!"
Lily advanced up the large hill that my sisters and brother
sled down each day. This is the only thing that separated my house from
the Snow Queens. Lily was now about two yards from the Snow Faerie's house,
and I had to say I was beginning to become frightened. My mother then
started for us with a look of sternness. Oh no, I thought.
"Lily!! Lily!! Now what do you think you're doing?" she
cried. Lily jumped back and slid down the hill right under my owner's
"Lily how dare you? I told you never to go to that woman's
house! Now go up to your room!" she shouted.
I stepped back, if Lily spilled the beans I was in for
"Bu...But mom, Lucky made..." she stuttered. I crossed
my legs, ready to run if I had too.
"No buts young lady go to your room now!" Lily turned
and slowy went up to her room. I couldn't help it, a sly smile crossed
My mother turned on her heel, "And you! I get you everything!
Look I just painted you for goodness sakes! AND this is what I get in
return? Now you go to your room and don't try to sneak out! Really you
could of had your sister hurt!"
Now I wanted to remark that I wouldn't ever sneak out
and that she should have more trust in me, but it would be lying so I
decided to follow my mother's request. I slammed the door and quietly
and looked at the empty room, practically my whole house was empty besides
the bedrooms and living room that is. I went up the stairs and wished
my brother was home from his date. I wanted to practice battling. I could
practice with my little sister Annie, but it was to easy. I guess I am
gonna have to read that dumb book for school, I drowsily thought. I jumped
onto my bed and began reading, I guess I kinda fell asleep because when
I woke everything was different.
I was laying on a sheet of ice, my fur frozen and damp.
For a moment I thought I was dreaming, but after a shaft of ice fell onto
my head I knew I wasn't. Hmm... I wonder where I am? I must of
been going through a state of shock becasue my location was easy to identify.
That's right I was in the Snow Faerie's House.
"Oh so you finally decided to wake up. Took you long
enough," said the Snow Faerie in between licking her lips. "I am so sick
of you pets sneaking up on my house like that! Really! You act like I
am going to cage you and eat you! I really am a very nice person... it's
just... see if.... so I decided to kidnap.... that's how you came here!
Maybe now those pesky pets will leave me be!" Now I hadn't really been
listening, but I had heard enough to understand.
"Oh...uh...I love the plan, but like when can I go home?"
I coolly asked.
"Uhh... Never," replied a smug Snow Faerie. The Faerie
turned away slowly dragging her gown against the icy pavement. She's waiting
for a frantic reaction. Maybe if I do the total opposite of what she wants
then I can go home..., I wondered. It was risky, but I couldn't let the
Snow Queen see I was desperate.
I took a breath of the frozen air and said, "Oh cool.
Well I suppose you are going to teach me some magic?" The Faerie turned
on her head and studied my face.
"You aren't, you aren't serious are you?" she said not
taking her eyes off me.
"Oh no, I am telling you quite the truth! I really want
to learn some of your magic! It seems...uh...fun, yes that's it fun!"
The Faerie muttered something under her breath that sounded strangely
like, "This is not going well."
"Okay then little acara, what would you like to learn?"
she asked with curiosity. I flipped myself back and leaned on a chunk
of ice. Then I started examining my nails, I truly looked bored.
"Ah...any ol' thing. I mean rumour has it you can't do
much other than make stupid potions that can freeze things up..." The
Snow Faerie's eyes turned frosty and she glared evilly.
"HOW DARE ANYONE SAY THAT!! WELL I OUGHTA... make a
potion to freeze them in? Oh it is true, I strut around like I know everything,
but all I can do is freeze things!"
Right then the Snow Queen began to cry and I was satisfied.
Time for part 2 of my plan...
"Well... I could... if you let me bring you a Faerie
from my house and give it to you. I am sure that Faerie could give you
some special powers..."
"Oh would you! Oh thank you! I will give you one hour
to get the captured Faerie and return it to me. Then out of gratitude
I will let you go," said the gullible Snow Queen.
I was very satisfied with myself as I ran home. I pranced
through the snow and through the house retrieving the Faerie from my shelf,
then started back up the hill. I ran into the Queen's home and put the
Faerie in her hand, and once again ran home. Now you may think that I
gave a Faerie away for no reason at all and that I am not the devious
master mind that I say I am. But believe me I am. There are a few facts
I should tell you. The Faerie I gave to the respected Queen was a Fire Faerie.
Now the Fire Faerie can only bless with a fire power
which is completely useless to the "queen". If she wants to be dumb enough
to use her new fire ability then she will melt.
