The Shed Part 6
As the door creaked open, the three girls walked into the darkness.
Night Star lit a candle and motioned for the others to follow her.
"I can't see anything!" Jacy whispered.
"Just wait a moment." Tsu whispered back.
They huddled together, eyes squinting to adjust. The candle flame started to flicker and grow. Tiny orbs of light seemed to emerge from the fire,
and fly off in different directions. As they bounced around the room like fire-flies, Jacy watched with awe. She opened her mouth to speak, when
suddenly the orbs came together and exploded!
The room was flooded with an amber hue.
"How is this possible?" Jacy asked.
The tiny garden shed was enormous inside. Rooms and hallways began to appear as she looked around in complete confusion. Jacy had never been inside
a mansion, but she was pretty sure that this place qualified.
She kept blinking her eyes...it all seemed a little blurry. Letting out a little gasp, she collapsed onto the floor.
Tsu looked at Night Star, "Do you think she will remember...when she wakes up?"
"Of course she will. We all remember eventually. She's just fighting it right now. I'll go get Jane."
As she opened her eyes, a feeling of complete calm enveloped her. She felt warm and happy...and loved.
"Am I dead?" Jacy asked.
Laughter erupted, and she sat up and looked around at all the smiling faces.
"I know you," she said to fossilera. "And you," she turned to face TrueBrit. "I remember...I REMEMBER!!"
With a shriek and a flap, a huge bird swooped into the room and landed on her shoulder.
"Grayeagle!" she exclaimed.
"Nice to see you finally made it!" the bird replied.
Cody walked into the room, placing a large crate on the table.
"Rodinus sent us some wine for the party!" he said, pulling out bottles and blowing the dust off. "He sent the good stuff, so he must be planning
to show up this time."
Jane clapped her hands together, and said "Well I'm off back to the kitchen...got sausage rolls in the oven." She walked over to hug Jacy, and
whispered in her ear "I'm glad you're back, enjoy the shed. I've got to get ready for the party!"
Crappiekat was quietly setting out glasses for the wine, humming softly to herself.
"You're going to meet a lot more family tonight, Jacy! It should be fun...the ogre hunters are coming too, though they're a bit rowdy!" she
laughed, blushing a little.
"I'm sorry...did you say 'ogre hunters'?"
"Yes...TDawg and Homer...although technically I think TDawg is still considered an ogre...not a hunter..." she drifted off without finishing.
"Okay, I'm done here for now. Night Star is with the dragons, and Tsu has taken Sophie exploring...so someone will be along shortly to show you how
to use your magic!" She smiled and wiped her hands on her rainbow apron.
"I'm starting to sense a theme here," Jacy joked...motioning towards the rainbow.
"Oh yes, Jane loves rainbows! To her, it signifies that all colours are beautiful...and so are we!"
Alone for the first time, Jacy sat back and closed her eyes. She wondered who was coming to teach her magic, and really REALLY hoped that she would
get to see the dragons. After a few minutes of carefree daydreaming, she heard the shed door open. Her eyes flew open just in time to see a large
figure silhouetted in the doorway. He seemed to be wearing a hazmat suit, or something similar. From inside the device a voice called out..."Did
someone send for TheDoctor46? I hear it's magic time!"
For the second time that day, Jacy passed out.
