Once upon a time, there was a wonderful and prosperous country, that had never been stricken by both disasters and diseases, named Criummyfield. Far away from Criummyfield there was a wonderful waterfall, behind it there was a place that is called Fairy Field. A place where the fairies –which always helped Criummyfield people with their magical power- lived happily. They were leaded by Queen Greinypearce, a very wise old fairy.
Every three months, those fairies should spread the magical season powder by turns into Criummyfield. Every year there were four fairies that were coroneted as The Season Fairies, they were called Summer Fairy, Autumn Fairy, Winter Fairy, and Spring Fairy. They did their own duty by turns; every season of a year was always begun by spring season as the symbol of a new life for human beings and other creatures.
One day, actually it was two days before the season changing; Queen Greinypearce invited four fairies, who were pointed as the season carriers this year, to gather in the palace ballroom. Those fairies were Shelio-the Summer Fairy, Aufielz-the Autumn Fairy, Winbell-the Winter Fairy, Synella-the Spring Fairy.
“Welcome My Dears, as a leader of the fairies, I will announce you a very important thing about your duty,“ said Queen Greinypearce, “alright, now is your turn Synella, you should spread this magical powder above Criummyfield.“
Synella accepted a little sack of magical season powder from Queen Greinypearce.
“Thank you my Queen, I’ll do my duty as well as I can, I promise. “
“Alright Synella, but guys, you should know about the warning before you do your own duty. “ Those fairies listened what Queen Greinypearce was saying carefully. “Guys,” she continued, “there are two ways to reach Criummyfield’s sky. The first is the longer way, you should fly across Walfy Hill, and it’ll spend much time. Then the second way is through the dangerous forest, Darkstand, you can’t fly above Darkstand, but it is the shorter way. And as you know if you are late only one day, you’ll disorganize the season length. So, please choose your own way. “
This was the day, Synella should fly above Criummyfield in the early morning. She would be accompanied by Denstars, one of Queen Greinypearce’s escorts, just because Synella was too young and sloppy. Before they went to Criummyfield sky, they spreaded the magical invisible powder into their whole bodies, because the fairies had to be invisible to the human. After that, Synella and Denstars flew toward Criummyfield sky; they decided to choose the first way. In the middle way, Denstars was stroke by an arrow from a hunter under the Criummy forest. He was injured and should be brought home. So, Synella brought him back home to Fairy Field.
Synella was very panic, she had spent two days uselessly, she remembered her promise to her Queen, and she shouldn’t be late. Then, she flew away with her golden wings; she decided to choose the second way, although it was very dangerous.
“I must use the rest time well, I shouldn’t be late or I’ll destroy the season,” Synella talked to herself. In front of her sight there was Darkstand, the forest where the evil witches lived. The forest with dark and damp atmospheres, the forest which was never has any light, and the forest of death. But, Synella was a faithful and brave fairy, she had never frightened of every evil things.
Near the Darkstand, she heard a pity voice. A boy shouted from the forest, he looked like need a help, his voice was vague. Synella forgot his duty, deep in her heart she wanted to help that boy, so she flew down into the forest. She flew between the dark branches, her eyes sought yonder, tried to find the unlucky boy. Suddenly, she looked a boy was crying under a very big and full of moss tree. Synella hide behind a tree, she said a magic spells and she changed herself into a human being. Then she approached that boy.
“Hey,” she said hello. That boy was shocked, but suddenly his face turned into a very pleasure face with rosy cheeks.
“Hey,” he replied, “who are you?”
“I am Synella, emm, I come from Criummyfield,” she was lying, “and you?”
“I am John, I come from Criummyfield too. By the way, why do you come here, this forest is very dangerous, isn’t it?”
“Yes, but I lost my way, I want to find many flowers for my mother, she is on her birthday,” Synella tried to be seen as a pity girl.
“Oh, and I also lost my way, I have been playing hide and seek with my friend, but I hide too far away from Criummyfield.”
Synella wanted to save John and helped him to escape from Darkstand. Then they walked to the south side, but it was so dark like a night, they found the blocked way. Unfortunately, Synella had never come to this forest, so she didn’t know the way to escape. They tried the other ways, but those were useless. They got tired, and decided to take a rest under the purple leaves tree. They slept, and the day was changed.
Far away in Criummyfield, the people were confused and cursed the God, why the spring season was late to come. They had been feeling the winter season too long, they couldn’t start the planting time on time. In the Fairy Field, Queen Greinypearce could see what was happening in Criummyfield within her crystal ball, but she couldn’t find where Synella was. She worried that Synella was lost her way in Darkstand, because the crystal ball couldn’t show what happened in Darkstand.
“My escorts, I command you to find Synella! I’ll give you a very powerful magic spells, it will help you to fight with Darkstand witches. Take care My Dear,” Queen Greinypearce let them went away. For about fifty escorts flew away into Darkstand to save Synella and also save the season in Criummyfield.
But, what happened was unpredictable, the witches were very powerful. Some of the escorts died; they were killed by witches’ magic spells. Several of them tried to have a negotiation with the witches.
“The Very Evil Witches in the universe, we come here peacefully, we don’t have any plan to make a fight with you. Our Majesty, Queen Greinypearce asked us to bring one of her fairy back from this wonderful forest,” said the leader of the escorts.
“Ha ha ha… You know, whatever have entered into this Forest of Evil will not be back, they will be foods for our king, Bellzizk,” replied a witch.
“But wait, our Queen Greinypearce has a present to Darkstand if you let Synella go.”
“No!! And I meant it.”
Within Darkstand, Synella and John were still trying to find the way to escape. They were very hungry and thirsty, but nothing could be eating. Every plant was poisonous and had dangerous power. Synella continued thinking about it, she felt that she remembered something, but she didn’t know what it was. Meanwhile, John started grumbling and sometimes crying aloud, he missed his parents and his friends, he felt that he would die.
“Synella, where should we walk anymore? I’ve been tired, I am hungry and thirsty,” said John weakly.
“John, I’ve been trying to find the exit. Please be patient, if you believe you will get what you want,” she said, “Do you believe in God?”
“Yes, I do.”
“So, God will send us an angel or a fairy to save us alive,” she said.
After they walked far away, they sat under the Redabblo tree. Synella had promised John to tell him a story about a brave fairy. John was very interested about that.
“John, well,” she started, “this is the story about a brave fairy named Haraquild; she was a very brave little fairy. One day she played through a damp and dark forest named Cantalloumiya, but she was lost her way. She cried under the most big tree within Cantalloumiya. She didn’t realize that the tree was alive, he could speak and move. The tree acquainted as Manorra, he was a wise and kind tree. Manorra said to Haraquild that he knew the way to escape from Cantalloumiya. Haraquild listened carefully what Manorra was saying. Manorra taught her magic-key-spells, ‘Horanna, Horanna, Pattorrita, Elsmenose, Shodura, Amnoistel, Horanna, Horanna’…” Synella stopped her story, he remembered something.
“John!!!” she shouted, “I know how to escape from this forest.”
John stood; he was looked on fire, his spirit burst out. He wanted to come home as soon as possible.
“How?? How can we do that?”
Synella pulled John’s hand, “Follow me Boy, we should find the highest tree in the heart of this forest.”
Fortunately, they could find the highest tree in Darkstand. They stood under that tree, and then Synella knocked the tree trunk. The tree moved, it woke up, it was alive. The tree had two big eyes, beard in that face and its branches waggled in the air.
“My Dear, why do you wake me up? What can I do for you My Sweetie?” the tree asked loudly, his voice vibrated the whole forest.
“Oh My Majesty, the Great Tree, I am Synella and this is John, my friend. We are lost our way, we wish we can go home soon, but we find that the ways were blocked. So, may you teach us how to escape from here?”
“My Dear, I’ll give you a magic spells, listen and repeat after me,” said the Tree, “but, I have a wish, if you can do that I’ll give you the magic spells.”
Synella nodded her head, “yes, I’ll do what you want.”
“You should give me a precious thing that you have.”
The tree was waiting with his gloomy glance while Synella decided what she should give to the tree.
“Alright, the Great Tree, I’ll give it to you,” Synella gave the tree something that made from gold silk. It was her wings, because of that she couldn’t fly anymore, but she acquiesced her wings to save John.
The tree, which named Gualoppe, taught her to tell the magic spells.
“My Dear, please repeat after me!” he whispered, “Horanna, Horanna, Pattorrita, Elsmenose, Shodura, Amnoistel, Horanna, and Horanna.”
Synella repeated, “Horanna, Horanna, Pattorrita, Elsmenose, Shodura, Amnoistel, Horanna, and Horanna.”
Then there was a bright shine emitted between the trees. It shaped like a way, a very bright way. Synella and John were shocked, they felt joyful.
“That is the way home, My Dear. Go ahead, and you will find your home!” ordered Gualoppe.
“Thank you, the Great Gualoppe. I’ll never forget your help. Gualoppe, can I ask you something?”
“Of course My Sweetie,” replied Gualoppe.
“I’ve ever heard about that magic spells, I remember that my grandma had told the story about Haraquile in Cantalloumiya. And she used the same magic spell like what you whisper to me. Have you ever heard that story?”
Gualoppe smiled, then said, “My Dear, Synella, Haraquile is your grandma name when she was young, and I am Manorra. This forest at that time named Cantalloumiya, but now the people called it Darkstand,” he explained slowly, “Synella, you are a very brave fairy.”
Synella and John left Gualoppe and Darkstand, they walked toward Criummyfield. Suddenly, in the middle way, Synella remembered her magic powder. She stopped to find it, but she got nothing, she thought that she had lost it. She began to cry, she fell guilty, and she failed as a Spring Fairy. She couldn’t do her own duty, she disordered the season. But, she encouraged her heart to go to Criummyfield, brought John back, and saw its condition. Actually, she was very shocked; Criummyfield was in a spring season. Why could it happen?
In front of Criummyfield’s gate, Queen Greinypearce stood to welcome Synella and John, she was in her joy. Synella fell ashamed; she wasn’t brave enough to see her Queen eyes. But, Queen Greinypearce with kindness embraced her and told her pride.
“Synella, I am very proud with you. You are very brave and kind.You have saved John, although you have another duty to do. You are very careful; you concern a small thing that may be another fairy doesn’t do that.”
“My Queen, how can the season be changed? Because I’ve lost the magical powder,” Synella was very confused.
“I’ve seen that you have faced a trouble, and I find your magical powder near Denstars bed, so I ask another fairy to do your duty. It was successful, right?”
After that incident, Synella was presented a gold medal and a pair of new wings. She was very happy, she thanked to all fairies, and also her Grandma. She promised to tell this story to her children and grandchildren. She had learned that every good seeds will result the good things. She would always help others although she should sacrifice her precious things, moreover her life. She is one great example of so many brave heroes in the universe.
