THUMBELINA

Once upon a time, there was an old woman that lived alone in a village for along time. She did everything that she had to do by herself. It made her felt lonely and sad. Not long afterward, she heard some people said about a Witch that could help her. The old woman then decided to meet the Witch and hoped that the witch could help her.

“I wish I can have a little girl to accompany me. Can you tell me what I should do?” asked the old woman.

“Oh, it’s very easy for me. I will give you a seed. It is not like other seed, but I can’t tell you the secret of this seed. Just bring it home, plant it and see what will happen,” whispered the Witch.  

Then the old woman went home and planted this seed in a flowerpot. She took care of this plant until it growth to a beautiful large flower. That flower looked like a tulip with red and yellow petals, but the petals were still closed. The old woman amazed with that flower and then she kissed it. Suddenly, the petals of that flower were opened. The old woman was surprised because she saw something inside the flower. There was a little girl that the size was no longer or bigger than a thumb of a woman. Because her size, the old woman called the little girl ‘Thumbelina’. 

The old woman was very happy because in that time she had Thumbelina. The old woman took care of Thumbelina very much. Thumbelina was happy too. She often sang in the kitchen where the old woman there. Her sound was very smooth and beautiful. It made the old woman happy and not felt lonely like she had felt before. When the night came, Thumbelina slept in a bed that made of peanut.
One day, a frog heard Thumbelina’s voice when Thumbelina was singing. The frog was interested in her voice. So, the frog jumped to the window and kidnapped Thumbelina to the frog’s house. 

“You will be a beautiful wife for my son,” said the frog. 

Deep down inside, Thumbelina didn’t want to be the wife of frog’s son because the frog was very ugly. But she didn’t know how to go from that place. The frog left Thumbelina on an orchid flower and went to look for his son. There were some fishes that accompanied Thumbelina. Thumbelina told them what she felt. Then that fishes helped Thumbelina by biting the leave so it could follow the air-stream. And Thumbelina succeed go from the frog.

When she followed the air-stream, she saw a beautiful butterfly. The butterfly brought Thumbelina to the forest where the butterfly lived. Thumbelina was very happy lived at that place. She ate the fruits and played with other butterflies. But when winter came, Thumbelina was confused. She couldn’t eat because there was no fruit. She also confused because her friends, butterflies, was disappear.

The next day, Thumbelina met a mouse and that mouse became Thumbelina’s friend. After that, Thumbelina lived at the mouse’s house. The mouse suggested Thumbelina to marry with his friend, field mouse. Thumbelina didn’t want to marry with field mouse because she couldn’t live under the field that was no warm of the sun. She didn’t want to marry with him although Thumbelina need to save from the snow.

One day, on the way to mouse’s house, Thumbelina met a swallow that was scattered on the snow. The swallow looked like felt very cold, so Thumbelina covered the swallow with some leaves. After that day, during the winter season, Thumbelina and the swallow often played together. Then Thumbelina realized that the swallow loved place that warm like Thumbelina. When summer came, the swallow got well and ready to fly again. The swallow asked Thumbelina to go with him. 

“I’ll go to a place that is warmer and far from here. Follow me, I will bring you to that place that you must be like”, said the swallow.

After that, Thumbelina fly with the swallow to a country that far away from that place. That country was full of flower. There were many small people like Thumbelina.

The Chronicles of Mammamia:
The Chicken, The Witch, and The Kitchen

This is another tale about how witches once ruled our world. Not like other knights with their shining armor, not like other kings with their battalions, but the witches with only their magic wand, once ruled the world. Unfortunately, this is not a tale about those witches. This is a tale about the witch who cooked. And like other tales, I’ll begin with once upon a time.

Once upon a time, there was a witch with her magic wand named Jadis. She was different from other witches. When all witches used their wands to slash people or to beat their enemies, Jadis used her wand to cook. Even she had a restaurant in her house called Kentucky Witch Chicken. Her restaurant won the heart of everybody. Every time people came and ate there, they would not stop saying. ”Mammamia, mammamia, mammamia…”.

Soon, all the people and the witches knew about her restaurant. The witches decided to come there. “Please, Jadis, show us what you got!”, said one of them. “Of course, your majesty, I’ll give the best of all.”, said Jadis. So Jadis tried to satisfy those witches. She cooked with all of her heart. Finally she put the chicken in front of those witches. All of them looked at the goldish chicken. One of them tried it. Jadis was waiting for the words “Mammamia, mammamia, mammamia” coming from their mouth. But suddenly, “Shame, shame, shame!” said the one who tried. “Do you call it as a food? It tastes like the dead body I’ve slashed in the battle!” All the witches then screamed, “Shame, shame, shame!”. Jadis could not understand why it happened. She put a lot of efforts in making the meals. “But, your honor, it can’t be happening. The chicken I’ve cooked in my kitchen would always be delicious.” Jadis tried to defend herself.

“Lie! I knew you did it on purpose. We came here to try your best meal, but you gave us nothing but rubbish!” said another witch with beard. “That’s a slander!” Jadis replied. “I’ve always cooked the best way I could.”
Everybody in that restaurant was silent and watched the quarrel. Another witch bit a piece of the chicken and spitted it out again. “Gee, are you trying to kill us by giving us this wicked meal?” Jadis was puzzled. She didn’t mean to do that. Never!

“Go taste it yourself!” They screamed loudly. And so she did. She surprised and then smiled, for nothing wrong with the chicken. It was perfect, indeed.

“Well gentlemen, I’ve tasted it myself and nothing seems go wrong with the meal I had cooked before.” Jadis took his magic wand. “Come, gentlemen, follow me to my kitchen.” she said. If you imagine that it was a shining kitchen, you are wrong, for the kitchen was full of chickens. They were all such nightmare. Running here and there, to and fro.

“The reason why you cannot taste the deliciousness of my meal is that, I haven’t used my charm yet.” Jadis said smiling. When all the witches were gawked, she wound her wand up and said,”Mammamia!”. Greeny smoke filled up the air and disappeared slowly as a snail. The witches opened their eyes and suddenly smiled at each other. And like other men, they walked out that restaurant and said,”Mammamia, mammamia, mammamia!” all the way.

There, inside her kitchen, Jadis stood still and grinned. “How fool they are.” Her magic wand said to her. Jadis looked at her wand and said,” How genius we are.”

AN UNWINGED ANGEL

In a modern-day, in a metropolitan city, there were a well-off family and an unpretentious family. Their house was built side by side. But, there was a big difference between them. One lived in the luxurious big house and the other one lived in very simple house. The rich family had a daughter, named Jane. The poor family had five children, the oldest one was Mary. Jane and Mary were in the same class. But, Jane never considered Mary as her friends, because Jane felt that Mary was not on a level with her. She came from a rich family, so she became the arrogant one in the class, and she just wanted to make friends with other guys in the same level. It meant that Mary was not one of them.

Jane had a gang. There were Patric, Jelly, Clara, and Finsha. Their obsession was to be the most popular students in the school, so they always tried to shatter any body who wanted to shift their popularity.  In class they often made a noise. They disturbed and objurgated other friends. They became an arrogant gang. One of their enemies was Mary, who was Jane’s neighbor. It was caused of Mary always became the best student in their school. Mary always got the first rank in the school and Jane was the second. Jane tried to defeat Mary, but her effort always failed.  They were jealous to Mary because she was smart, beautifull and modest. The biggest reason was because she was liked by many friends and she could be close to other people, easily.
One day, there would be a selection to be a school’s representative in the speech contest. There were some selections, and finally, there were two students who still existed. They were Jane and Mary. They would follow the final selection next week.
“Hii… poor girl, I’m sure that I will be the winner, and I will be the representative in the speech contest. And I’m also sure that I can be a winner in that contest.” Jane said to Mary when they left the class.  But it did not make Mary afraid of her. She just replied her by smiling. It made Jane became irked.
When the selection day was coming, Jane had got ready to follow the selection. But, at that time, Mary was not coming to the selection day. And finally, the teacher choosen Jane as the representative to the speech contest. After that, Jane was curious about Mary. “Why did not she come to the selection day? What did happen with her?” she thought.
In the canteen, some students sat together and talked about the selection. “I’m sure that Jean will be more arrogant than before because she will be the representative to the speech contest.” said a student to her friends. “I agree that Jane will be more arrogant than before!” another student added. “We would be proud of my friend, Mary. She preferred to help her mother than to follow the contest. We know she has three sisters and one brother. Her father is sick, so she has to help her mother’s job.” Mary’s close friend explained.
“I remember what she said two days ago.” she continued. “What??” other friends became curious. “She told me that she could not follow that contest, because she doesn’t want to become greedy about something.”She explained. “I still do not understand what you mean?” asked the other friend. “She just wanted to give another people an opportunity to get what she or he wanted. In other word, she wanted to give Jane an opportunity to get something that she wanted. Mary thought that Jane wanted to follow the contest. She is sure that Jane can be the winner in that contest. She does not care what Jane has been done to her. She is sure that some day, Jane can change her behavior.”She added.
“Is she sure??” other asked. “I don’t know, but Mary is very sure, she told me that everybody could change to be better, and everybody has a good side in her heart. She believes it.” She explained. Other friends heard the explanation, silently.
Not far from where some students sat, Jane heard their conversation, intuitively. She was plunged in her thought. She remembered what she had done to Mary. She felt guilty to Mary, she had made Mary lost her scolarship some months ago. Whereas, Mary was very needed it, because her father was sick, so now her mother worked alone and she had some brother and sister. “Oh my God…what a evil I am!!”, she realized.
After that, Jane realized her bad behaviour. She regretted about it.” It is right that Mary is a good person. She is never egoistic, and she wants to give me an opportunity to follow the contest.” She thought, “She is proper to be the best student in the school. She also really loves her family, more than herself, because she prefers to help her mother than to follow the contest.”
Now, Jane realized her bad behaviour. She was determined to change it. “And the most important now is I should do my best at the contest.” she thought, “because Mary has given the good opportunity to me, so I must be the winner in that contest. I must show my best in that contest.”.
In the end of the contest, it was the time to announce the winner of the contest. “And the winner is…….. Jane Marriam Smith…” the host announced. All students shouted together because of the victory. After she got appreciation, she talked something about this victory. “ …… And the last but not least, I would like to present it to my friend, who has made me understand about life. Thank you, my friend. Mary, your heart is like an angel, which is full of goodness. You have realized me about my mistakes. I hope that we can be a friend, forever. You give me some lessons in my life. I’m sorry that I’m arrogant, bad, sometimes disturb all of you. So, in this time I want to apologize to all of you. And I will try to be better than before. Thank you all!” she closed. Mary, who saw and heard it, just could smile while carried away with her friend’s words.

SPRING FAIRY

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.

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.

They are always together in everywhere and every time. Dave was a good brother. He always helped Mercy if she was in difficulties. Moreover, he would sacrifice himself to protect his sister when she was in a dangerous situation. When they were in elementary school, Mercy was chased by a fierce dog. She was frightened. She screamed then Dave came to help her. Unfortunately, he got hurt by the dog’s bite. Dave loved his sister very much. He didn’t want anyone wounded her. It was better if he got hurt because of her than his sister did.

Mercy was 18 years old. She studied in the same university with Dave. She was a new student, so she had to follow the campus orientation. Many senior mistreated all of new students as a mental test. In the first day, mercy went home with pale face and dirty clothes. It made Dave very angry. In the next day, he scolded the seniors because they mistreated his sister. All of the seniors were frightened and promised not to mistreat Mercy anymore. Mercy was given good treatment as a special right by the seniors. But, she felt uncomfortable because a lot of the students became jealous of her. However, she knew that his brother worried about her.

After that day, Mercy studied in peace. No one could disturb her because Dave always with her. Just like before, they always departed and went home together. If Mercy had classes until afternoon, Dave would wait for her. He protected his sister well.

One day, Mercy told her brother that she had a boyfriend. Dave felt something strange came into his heart. It was poignant. But, he didn’t tell to his sister because he didn’t really understand what kind of feeling in his heart. He didn’t want to lose his sister. He didn’t believe in others. He thought that there is no appropriate person to protect mercy, except him. He saw that his sister was very happy because of her boyfriend. Actually, he didn’t want to crush Mercy’s happiness. Then, he calmed his feeling down. But, he wouldn’t forgive Mercy’s boyfriend if he made his sister hurt.

On Saturday night, Dave went to a cafe to have a dinner with his friends. He left Mercy home because she wanted to go with Adam, her boyfriend. In the café, he felt something wrong happened. He seemed to see Adam with a girl which was not his sister. Then, he came to Adam. It was true that she wasn’t Mercy. It was impossible that she was not Adam’s girlfriend because he treated her very close. Adam was surprised. Spontaneously, Dave hit Adam and left him without any sound. He went home with shattered feeling. He knew, it would also happen if Mercy knew about this affair.

At home, Dave found his sister was crying because of Adam’s absence. Then, he hugged his sister affectionately. He told to her about the affair that had just happened carefully. He worried Mercy didn’t believe him. Fortunately, his sister stopped crying and thanked to him. A few minutes later, Mercy slept in Dave’s shoulder because she was very tired. Both of them didn’t know there were two persons, their parents, paid attention through the door space. Their parents worried if their fright happened. Dave and Mercy were falling in love.

In the next day, Mr and Mrs.Thomson decided to ask Dave whether he loved Mercy or not. In this case, their mean was love between a male and a female, not love between brother and sister. Dave didn’t understand about his parents’ meaning. But, he tried to answer honestly. First, he thought that he loved his sister very much but his feeling began to change. He was jealous if a boy loved a girl. It was because in fact, Mercy was his sister. How can he love his sister? Then, Mr.Thomson began to tell about the true story. He told that mercy was not their daughter. She was adopted from a poor family in a small village far away from their home town. Unconsciously, Mercy had been listening to their conversation near them. She was surprised and shocked. Then, she ran away from her house with tears flow from her eyes. Dave tried to find her, but he couldn’t. Their parents were guilty about that. All of them tried to find Mercy until night came, but they couldn’t. They were worried about Mercy’s condition.

At night, Mercy went back home after she calmned her mind down. Mrs.Thomson hugged her warmly. She apologized because of the lie. Mercy also apologized because she made them worried. After the situation became better, Mercy asked her mother about her true parents’ identity and address. She wanted to meet them. First, Mrs.Thomson didn’t want to give the information. She didn’t want Mercy left them again. But, then she did. She could understand about Mercy’s feeling. Mercy promised that she won’t leave them. She only wanted to tell her true parents that she was their daughter.

In Mercy’s room, Dave met his sister. He sat near Mercy in the bed. “I love you”, he said carefully. Actually, he was scared to tell about his feeling. He thought that Mercy would be angry. But, the fact was the opposite. Mercy’s reaction was out of his prediction. She looked at Dave’s eyes and said slowly but sure, “I love you too”. Spontaneously, they was hugged each other. The situation was full of warmth. Actually, Mercy loved Dave like he loved her so much. But, she thought that was impossible. Then, they knew the fact that they were not true brother and sister. So, Dave was not a sister complex sufferer. They thought that no one could understand each other except themselves. Their parents were happy to know that their children grew up being mature persons and loved each other. So, they would be together until the end of time as a family as before.
