Daydreamer_daydream pulled out what she got and, without looking at it, she
explained how she got it.
"Woah!" gentle_lil_queen says as she looks at the faerie. "You weren't allowed
to go there, but for once I'm not punishing you! You did a good thing!"
Gimmer_shimmer pops out of the daydream. "We did?" they both said.
"Look at it!" gentle_lil_queen shouted.
Daydreamer_daydream and Gimmer_shimmer looked at the faerie and gasped. First,
they just stared at it. Then they looked as Indalabray the Lupe walked in.
"Daydreamer_daydream, I need some help... what is that?" Indalabray said.
He looked closer and gasped. "You guys got a faerie." Then he looked closer.
"Uh-oh. This was one of Balthazar's least favourites."
Indalabray was studying faeries to find out more about them and about Balthazar.
"Least favourites?" Daydreamer_daydream asked. "What do you mean?"
"Well, whenever Balthazar sees a faerie save another faerie or warn faeries
of his plans, he puts them in dangerous places so no one will ever dare find
them! You guys must have been lucky! Unfortunately, this one can't give abilities."
Then Indalabray studied the faerie more closely.
"Woah!" Indalabray exclaimed and backed away. "Have you heard of Aurelia,
the most helpful small faerie around?"
"Yes," said Gimmer_shimmer. "Why do you ask?"
"Because that faerie is Aurelia!"
Everyone gasped. They never knew they would come face to face with Aurelia.
Then they noticed that she was using an air breather to breathe so Indalabray
opened the bottle.
"Whew!" Aurelia said as she took gulps of air. "It's good to breathe
fresh air again!" Gimmer_shimmer took the faerie in her hands to let her
tell the story.
"We have got to get her to Faerieland!" Daydreamer_daydream shouted.
"Wait!" Aurelia shouted. "If you have a faerie that was tortured by me, you
have to go the dangerous way, through the Faerieless Forest."
"They don't allow faerie's in the Faerieless Forest," Gimmer_shimmer
"That's why you have to hide me. We will be there quicker if only the flying
pets take me there, but you still have to face the dangers."
"You two go," gentle_lil_queen said to Gimmer_shimmer and Daydreamer_daydream.
"The quicker the better."
"We'll leave tomorrow," Aurelia said. "We need as much packing up time
After dinner, they packed up some items, but not all of them or they would
rot in daydreamer_daydream's room. Indalabray made a bed for Aurelia with a
shoe box with a lid. He took some rags, cut them out, and put them in the order
of a bed. That would be their travel bed and their bed Aurelia would use that
night. Finally, they went to sleep
In Aurelia's dream...
Aurelia was in the bottle again. This time she had no air breather, but she
could still breathe. She was back in the whirlpool.
"Aw man," Aurelia said. "Why this?"
Suddenly, the glass of the bottle started to break. Aurelia gasped and ran
to cover the holes. It wasn't enough. The bottle broke and Aurelia was swept
in the water and in a hole. In a hole? Where did that come from?
"Aurelia. You are in a dream. I brought you here to warn you of your quest,"
said a strange voice of a Peophin.
Aurelia gasped. "What is it?"
"You will face many challenges. Some are just to get past. The others are
"What? There hasn't been a SINGLE deadly challenge in the forest!"
"That's what you think. Some faeries have been lost and never returned from
the forest. You don't know any of them, except one. A very powerful famous one.
"Yes. The one that spared the rest of the Koi from being destroyed from the
whirlpool. The one that created the hidden tower items of good faith, well,
at least did most of it. The one that, like you, saved 1,000,000 faeries from
"Wait a minute. Marquesa saved 1,000,000 faeries from being captured! I only
saved the party..."
"Wrong again. Those faeries would have created the faerie creator. The Faerie
Queen would help, at least the new one, which is in the group. It would create
and summon more faeries when needed. Wait. Maybe I'm wrong. You wouldn't save
a million faeries. You would save more. Billions!" The Peophin looked at Aurelia.
"Oh! And for your quest you must take this!" She handed her a small golden bag.
"It will help you in your quest. What it does you have to find out for yourself.
That is all I can tell you."
"Wait! What if I..."
But Aurelia was already out of the dream.
Back to reality...
Aurelia woke up. "Oh," she said. "It was only a dream..."
But then Aurelia saw the golden bag by her head. Suddenly, the Peophin from
the dream appeared.
"Remember, you can only use the item once so use it wisely. Don't open the
bag until you really need it and don't tell anyone of me or the dream." Before
the Peophin could disappear, a strand of hair fell on the face. A silver hair
from the mane. Then the Peophin disappeared.
"It must have been a faerie Peophin," Aurelia said. "Only the faerie kind
has a mane like that!"
Two hours later, everyone woke up. Aurelia hid the bag beneath the pillow
of her bed so no one would see it.
After the BIGGEST breakfast they ever had, they finished packing up. This
time they packed the food, water, anything else they wanted. (They also took
some Battledome weapons.) They tied Aurelia's bed to Daydreamer_daydream's back
with Aurelia in it. Then they set off.
After five miles, Aurelia spotted the forest and they went to it, but before
they could go in, a Lupe guard spotted them and told them to halt, but Daydreamer_daydream,
Gimmer_shimmer, and Aurelia ignored the guard and kept going. Soon, they were
deep in the forest.
During the next 5 miles, Aurelia told them how they knew they were almost
in Faerieland. The telling was longer than the two Pteris believed.
At dusk, the Pteris decided to fly five more miles before setting a camp.
At the fourth mile, some darkness was flying in the sky ahead. One seemed to
notice and they flew over.
"What are you doing here?" asked the shadow... whatever it was. It looked
half Pteri half Grarrl, only with a bit of... of... Koiish Peophin?
"Aurelia," Gimmer_shimmer whispered to her. "Hide."
She did and closed the shoe box so no one would see her. Nobody did.
"We're just um... taking a little stroll in this forest. We don't want the
faeries giving us quests." Daydreamer_daydream said. It was the perfect lie.
"But only evil NeoPets are allowed here!"
Or... maybe not.
"What if we are evil?"
"Only black mutated ones are considered welcome."
"Erm... I was fed a potion."
"What's that shoe box? What's in it?"
Or definitely not. I'll just be quiet.
"Looks like something to me."
The "Pteri" fired a ray at Daydreamer_daydream and Gimmer_Shimmer. Suddenly,
they were both still. Silently still. Dangerously still, which lasts for thirty
seconds, plenty of time for the "Pteri" to check out the shoe box without trouble.
"They have a faerie!" the Pteri shouted. "Get them!"
That was just the time Daydreamer_daydream and Gimmer_shimmer awoke from the
ray's power. They heard the whole thing and flew as fast as they could.
On the fifth mile, Daydreamer_daydream, Gimmer_shimmer, and Aurelia decided
to skip making camp. They were still being chased.
"Aurelia," Daydreamer_daydream said. "You can go to sleep if you want. We'll
make our escape."
But Aurelia didn't want to sleep. She didn't know if this was the exact time
to open the bag and use the weapon, but soon, she fell asleep.
In Aurelia's dream...
Aurelia was back in the hole just scratching the surface of the surface of
Maraqua. Once again, she was face-to-face with the Peophin
"You have chosen wisely so far Aurelia," the Peophin said. "They knew the
way to escape because of your explanation of the route to Faerieland. If you
stayed awake, they would be more worried and not be able to escape."
Aurelia was surprised. "But I fell asleep completely on accident!" Aurelia
"That's what you think. You wanted to use to item in your mind, but in your
heart, you knew you could trust them."
"Then when DO I use the item?!"
"That's what you have to decide"
Aurelia was forced to go back to dreamless sleep after this.
When Aurelia woke up...
Aurelia looked around. She saw the box completely closed so she opened it
a crack. She didn't expect the sun to rise and Gimmer_shimmer and Daydreamer_daydream
to be sleeping in a tent. Nearby, she saw the "it" that met them lying on the
ground. Then Aurelia saw the chains on the ground holding him so she decided
not to worry.
The two Pteris woke up and cooked breakfast. Gimmer_shimmer and Daydreamer_daydream
had a cereal bar. Aurelia had a Neoflakes cake since she was small. Then they
set off again.
After six miles, Aurelia decided to tell them something.
"Hey guys. There is something I have to tell you," Aurelia said.
"What is is?" both the Pteris asked.
"I have a sword of the Air Faerie."
