I had thought I was finished with the fairy series, but after some “gentle persuasion”, I have decided to write one more story. After all, someone needs be a big hero and save all the other poor fairies that had been kidnapped. If you missed the last story, here is the link. Truth Revealed
It had been a week since the “nameless men” had become heroes and rescued Kendra from the fairies. She had been under the spell of Felicity the dark fairy, who had made her become Princess Iridessa.
Kendra was so happy to be back with her grandmother, they could not thank their heroes enough. Her grandmother told them that she would be glad to make her special strawberry, salted caramel coffee for them anytime they wanted to stop by.
One of the nameless heroes was lying in bed, not able to sleep. Probably due to him indulging in too much of Grandma’s sweet coffee. He typically did not drink coffee, but there was just something magical about that strawberry coffee that he couldn’t resist.
Now he laid in bed thinking of the other fairies that were still under Felicity’s spell. Would they be able to rescue them? He knew that the other guys were trying to come up with a plan, would it be successful?
He also couldn’t stop thinking of Cupcake, Fairlight’s unicorn. Oh how he envied Fairlight. He had always been intrigued with unicorns and he would love to fly on the back of one, through the moonlit sky.
“What was that? Did something just flash by his window?”
He got up from his bed and walked over to the window to look outside. What he saw almost took his breath away! There was the most beautiful unicorn he had ever seen. It was a dazzling white, with brightly colored wings. It was Cupcake! What was Cupcake doing here? His heart was bursting, he had to touch the unicorn, only then could he believe that Cupcake was really outside his window.
Slipping into his shoes, he quickly ran outside, holding his breath that the unicorn would still be there.
There it was, not having moved from his window. Boldly he reached out to touch it and it didn’t move at all. He kept rubbing Cupcake, and then, he had the craziest idea! Ideas seemed to come to him often, but this one may be the craziest one yet. Would the unicorn let him ride it? Could he soar through the dark blue sky on it? There was only one way to find out. Slowly he climbed upon it and before he knew it Cupcake took off!
“WOW!” the “nameless man” shouted! He was as thrilled as could be. Cupcake soared higher and higher into the sky. Perhaps he would get to touch the moon, fly through the Milky way galaxy. He didn’t know where Cupcake was headed, but he didn’t care.
In a short time the unicorn started going downward and soon they had landed on a bridge. The man recognized the bridge. They were back in Fairyland. This was where they had met Fairlight in order to rescue Kendra. Why had the unicorn brought him here?
“Quick, listen to me.” Cupcake spoke, ” Fairlight sent me to you. She and your friends are helping to rescue the other fairies and they need your help!”
The man’s face beamed with pride, he was going to be a hero tonight!
“Come to steal more of my fairies away?”” a sinister voice said from behind him.
The man almost fell off his unicorn from fright. Behind him was Felicity, the dark fairy. “OH NO!” What was he going to do?
Out of the corner of his eye he caught a slight movement. Was that who he thought it was? Yes, it was his friends moving through the woods, with Fairlight too! Now he understood. Fairlight had sent her unicorn to him so that he could come distract Felicity the dark fairy. They knew he would be brave enough to do it. He wouldn’t let them down, he would be the hero that saved them all!
“So I am going to ask you one more time, What are you doing here?” Felicity asked.
The man climbed down off Cupcake so he could stand up big and tall to Felicity.
“Excuse me Ma’am, but I am afraid I am lost. I think I must have turned the wrong way at the galaxy. Can you help me? Where am I exactly?”
Unknown to the man, Cupcake had worked her magic and disguised the man, so that Felicity didn’t recognize him as one of the “nameless men”.
“You don’t know where you are at? You don’t know who I am?” cackled Felicity.
“Why no, but you do look very stunning, if I may say.”
Felicity allowed herself to blush a little, and then she laughed.
“Well … well … this could be fun.”
The man’s heart pounded a little , he hoped his friends knew what they were doing and that they would be hurry up, so that Cupcake could fly him away to safety.
“I haven’t had much chance to practice my spells, you wouldn’t mind, would you, if I practiced on you?”
The “nameless man’s” throat began to grow very dry as he tried to swallow the growing lump.
“Umm… did you say spells?” he asked nervously.
“Yes! I did. I think you would make a fine specimen for me to practice on . Hmmm… lets see, what do you prefer, a quacking duck or…” Suddenly Cupcake soared into the air! The “nameless man” tried to quickly jump on, but Felicity grabbed him.
Where was she going without him? The man’s heart fell! He saw her fly over to his friends and Fairlight. They had all the fairies with them and they were all on Cupcake’s back now.
“My fairies!” yelled Felicity in anger.
“You did this! You distracted me so that they could get away! For this you will pay!”
His friends and the other fairies watched from the sky in horror as Felicity turned him into a quacking duck!
The fairies were all taken safely back to their homes, and reunited with their families. Everyone was so grateful, giving the “nameless men” and Fairlight many thanks!
In silence the “nameless men” headed back home. They were glad to have saved the fairies, but they were sad about their friend. Perhaps they could think of a way to save him. For now though, they knew who the true hero really was! It was their friend who swam in a lake and now quacked with the other ducks. It was his bravery in facing Felicity that had enabled them all to escape. He had always wanted to be a big hero, and now he truly was. “Quack! Quack!”
