Chapter one – Autumn


It all started during the summer holidays on a summer sunny Monday evening.

Autumn Rowe is 7 years old. She has blue eyes and brown hair.

She has a mum called Tracey, a dad called Patrick and three older sisters called Pippa, Tanya and Dominique.

Like most 7-year olds, Autumn believes in all things mythical creatures, fairies, unicorns, elves, mermaids, princesses, gnomes and pixies out there somewhere.

Mrs Rowe was in the kitchen when Autumn came into the kitchen “hey mummy. What’s for tea?” I asked, “what would you like for tea darling?” asked Mrs Rowe “cake” I joked.

Mrs Rowe laughed a happy laugh “cake?! I wish but we can have it for pudding and have sausages, mash and peas for tea?” asked Mrs Rowe “okay mummy” I said giving my mum a giant big hug “I’m going to go and look for fairies” I added “okay sweetheart” said Mrs Rowe and I ran out into the big back garden.

When I got outside, my older sister Tanya was sat on the garden bench reading her book.

I started to look through the grass when Tanya came over “what are you going?” she asked, “looking for fairies” I said as I continued my search, Tanya walked back inside.

“Mum, you know Autumn and her friends are looking for fairies” she said going into the big kitchen.

Mrs Rowe was watching me through the kitchen window while cleaning the dishes.

“Yeah, I know darling” said Mrs Rowe “one problem, fairies don’t exist. They’re not real. Someone needs to tell her” said Tanya “Tan, she’s just a kid. She’s seven years old” said Mrs Rowe “I can’t tell her, she believes in every mythical creature. Why would you want to ruin that?” she asked.

After that, the issue was dropped and forgotten about.

That afternoon, I was in my bedroom with one of my best friends Pippa Watts who was also 7 years old.
My bedroom was big, the walls had been decorated with fairies, unicorns, princesses, elves, fairy houses and an enchanted forest with fairy dust and I had a princess bed with four bed posts.

“Do you want to go and look for more fairies in the garden?” I asked “yeah” said Pippa Watts smiling at me.

Chapter two – the search

When Pippa and I got into the garden. My dad was relaxing on a sunbed.

"Hey daddy," I said. My dad opened his eyes and sat up.

"Hey princess, what are you girls up to?" asked Mr. Rowe "looking for fairies and elves," I said "have fun, can you try and find my crown for me? I've lost it" said Mr. Rowe kissing my hair and walked inside.

"Honey," said Mr Rowe to Mrs Rowe walking into the kitchen, "yes?" asked Mrs Rowe who was folding the laundry "Autumn and Pippa are outside looking for fairies and elves," said Mr Rowe "I know, it's so sweet," said Mrs Rowe "maybe I should join them" she said.

Then my 21-year-old sister Pippa came into the kitchen.

"Mum, we know you don't want Autumn to grow up," said Pippa "I don't know what you're talking about," said Mrs. Rowe not admitting that what Pippa had said was true.

Mrs. Rowe was very overprotective of her youngest daughter Autumn. When Autumn was born, Tracey was very ill which meant that Autumn had to be taken out of her mum earlier than expected.

But my sisters Tanya and Dominique had come in and everyone knew that my mum was lying. The reason why Mrs. Rowe is so overprotective of Autumn is because when Autumn was little, she got bullied at school.

"Trace, it's natural to not want your kids to grow up but sadly they have to. We've just got to accept that our baby girl is growing up and is going to be in year 5 in September. I know this is hard for you but you were exactly the same with Tanya, Pippa, and Dominque but look how they've turned out. Autumn is going to be okay" said Mr. Rowe reassuring his wife.

Mrs. Rowe smiled at her husband "did you know that Autumn wants to be an author when she grows up?" asked Mrs. Rowe "no I didn't but it's the perfect job for her. She has got an amazing imagination" said Mr. Rowe "I agree with you dad. For a 7-year-old, she has an outstanding imagination" agreed Tanya.

Everyone smiled at each other.

Back in the garden, my other best friends had joined Pippa and me on the search for fairies.
"I can't wait for September," said Seth Clarke "Yeah, neither can I. Year 7," I said with a smile.

Seth Clarke was 7 years old, he had brown hair and green eyes. He was the tallest out of the group and the oldest. He was a bit of a teacher's pet at school, always coming top in almost everything. His birthday is October 24th, 2010.

We continued our search when my 15-year-old sister Dominique came over.

Dominique Martha Rowe had brown hair and brown eyes and was Autumn's older sister. She had an interest in anything technical and was much like her dad Patrick. But she's always wanted to be a chef when she's older and take after her mum Tracey. Dominique and Autumn do get on with each other but they have their moments of arguments and falls out but Dominique is always there when Autumn needs her. Her birthday is 1st of September 2005 and the difference between them is 5 years

"Why are you looking through our grass?" she asked “We're looking for fairies," I said "you'll find nothing, I wouldn't bother," said Dominique and stormed back inside the house.

"What does she mean by that?" asked Scott "I don't know, she's probably in one of her moods, ignore her," I said.

Scott Toogood is 6 years old and the youngest out of the five friends. He's 5'2 and loves playing football and going on his Xbox. His birthday is July 24th, 2011. He's got, one sister, one brother and one stepsister.

We all walked into the house and went upstairs to my room.

I went into my wardrobe and got the board game twister out and we set it all up and started to play.

Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Rowe were on the phone to Pippa's parents.

"Yes, that's an excellent idea. A picnic in the forest of enchantress. I'll just pop upstairs and tell them the wonderful surprise. Oh, they’re going to be over the moon" said Mr. Rowe sounding happy and walked upstairs.

Chapter three – The Picnic

I answered the door “hi daddy” I said “hello girls. We’ve got a surprise for you” said Mr. Rowe.

The five friends looked at each other.

“What’s that?” I asked “well, how would you feel about going on a picnic?” asked Mr. Rowe looking at us.

“Oh, daddy! Yes, I love picnics” I said, “Oh me too,” said Pippa “same,” said Seth and Scott together, “I thought you all would love it,” said Mrs. Rowe coming into my room “what time are we going and when are we going?” I asked, “tomorrow at lunchtime,” said Mrs. Rowe “where are we going?” I asked, “in the enchantress forest, it’s a lovely little forest near Cornwall,” said Mr. Rowe.
The kids looked at one another with the biggest smiles on their faces.

“Yes so you must get a good night’s sleep otherwise you’ll all be like zombies tomorrow and it’s going to be a long day” said Mrs Rowe “okay mummy” I said “see you all tomorrow” said Scott “what time do you want us here Mrs Rowe?” asked Pippa “10?” asked Mrs Rowe “I expect you all want to bring things with you for the journey” she added “bye then” I said to my friends smiling.

The next morning, it was a Tuesday and perfect weather for the picnic.

Autumn had got up early and was dressed in a pink summer dress with her hair in plaits when her friends arrived. She was helping her mum in the kitchen with the preparation of the food.

By the time everything and everyone were ready to go, it was midday.

“Right, are we all ready to go?” asked Mr. Rowe.

We all looked at Mr. Rowe “yes” we all said together “then let’s go” said Mr. Rowe and we all walked outside.

All four cars were parked next to each other and we all got in them.

Autumn got into her dad’s car with her friends and her mum. Mr. and Mrs. Wood had Pippa’s mum along with Scott’s mum and stepdad. Pippa’s older sister had Jenny’s younger sister Billie, Sapphire’s older brother, Seth’s older sister and Scott’s older brother. The last car had Scott’s older sister Carly and Autumn’s other two older sisters with Pippa driving.
“Where is this forest of enchantress dad?” I asked “Cornwall,” said Mr. Rowe

All the families including Pippa’s dad, Scott’s dad, and Sapphire’s mum live in Yeovil.

“So, is that where we’re going?” I asked “yes sweetheart,” said Mr. Rowe as we got onto the motorway.

Chapter four – Do you believe in fairies?

As we drove into Cornwall, I noticed a sign just on a border saying,

"Welcome to the kingdom of Enchantress"

All that was to be seen was masses of the forest "I definitely need to explore there" I thought to myself as I was lost in thought. I didn't realize that the 4 cars that we were traveling in had turned left into a huge empty car park.

"So, is this the forest?" I asked "yes, princess," said Mr. Rowe as we all parked the four cars and got out.

I looked around this big forest.

It had lots and lots of trees and lots of grass. Some of the trees had apples growing on them.

There were loads of birds flying high in all different directions.

Flowers were everywhere. There was also a woodpecker in one of the trees working hard.

"This forest is amazing daddy," I said, "isn't it lovely darling," said Mr. Rowe.

We all looked around at the magical kingdom we had entered.

"Shall we set up the picnic? I'd expect the kids are hungry by now traveling all this way" said Mrs. Rowe "Yeah, I expect so love" said Mr. Rowe as his wife got the blanket out of the boot of the car.

Mrs. Rowe started to put the blanket out on the grass and laid all the food out on top.
"Mummy?" I asked, "yes darling?" asked Mrs. Rowe "Can we go and play hide and seek?" I asked.

My mummy had only just finished setting up the table and laying out all the food on the blanket "yes, you can after lunchtime" said Mrs. Rowe. I smiled at my mummy.

We all sat down on the blanket and started to eat.

"This is lovely food mum," said Tanya "and a beautiful place dad" added Dominique "thank you, darling," said Mr. and Mrs. Rowe together.

"Mummy?" I asked as I finished my sandwich "Yes sweetie?" asked Mrs. Rowe "what's up darling?" asked Mr. Rowe. I looked at both my mummy and daddy.
"Do you believe in fairies?" I asked.

Everyone went silent and looked at Mrs. Rowe

Chapter five - Are they real?
“Of course, she doesn’t! they’re not real” said Dominique.

I looked at my older sister and everyone else looked at me and the expression on my face.

“Dominique, how could you say that? Say sorry” said Mrs. Rowe who was angry and shocked with her 15-year-old daughter.

“No, I won’t mum. But it’s the truth” said Dominique.

Everyone looked back at me. I nearly had tears down my face.

“Autumn, are you okay?” asked Pippa “yeah, I’m just going to go over here,” I said and went over to a tree.

Everyone looked at Dominique unimpressed “what?” she asked “what is wrong with you? She’s just a kid” said Pippa pushing Dominique.

Dominique sighed.
“Fine, I’m sorry,” said Dominique “you’re saying it to the wrong person, ” said Mr. Rowe pointing over at Autumn. She was bending down looking at some pink roses by herself.

Dominique walked over to her little sister.

“Hi,” said Dominique. I stood up right and looked at my sister “Autumn, look I didn’t mean what I said okay. Fairies are real and they do exist. In fact, I just saw one in between those two trees over there” she added pointing to two giant trees.

I smiled at my sister “I forgive you” I said and I ran towards the trees while Dominique watched me from a distance smiling.

Chapter six – Hide and Seek

When I got back, everyone had finished eating their lunch.

“Can we go and play now mummy?” asked Pippa to her mum who was relaxing under a tree with Mrs Rowe.

She sat up “yes go and play. But be careful and don’t go too far okay” said Mrs Watts.

“I’ll count to 100 and ready and not I’m coming okay,” said my sister Pippa

“1,2,3” she started counting and Autumn and her friends ran as fast as they could.

20 minutes later, my sister was up to number 86 and we all waited in our hiding places.
But we hadn’t noticed where we had entered.

We had entered a part of the forest that wasn’t similar to the other part of the forest we had come from.

What we saw in front of us was a small path with round gray pebbles that led us to a small cottage with a small fairy door that was Aqua which was a bluey green.

There was lots of grass around the tiny house and flowers dotted everywhere.

“Where are we?” asked Pippa “I don’t know,” I said but then at the corner of my eye. I saw a sign with some writing on.

“Hey guys, look,” I said to my friends “what’s that?” asked Scott.
I read it out loud.

“Welcome to our fairy cottage”

“This is a fairy cottage?” asked Seth “yeah,” said Sapphire.

I looked around the forest.

There was a sparkle in the air and magic all around the cottage.
The cottage wall was peachy pink. There were toadstools next to each other by the house.
The fairy door was a light blue and had a brown door knob.
The roof was a bright red that looked like big pebbles.
The five friends stepped towards the cottage and walked along the path.
“Should we knock on the door or go in?” asked Seth.

I looked at my friends and we started to walk towards the pretty cottage.

As we reached the fairy door and I opened the door quietly and we stepped inside.

Chapter seven – Lost


“Guys, who’s house is this?” I asked, “it’s a nice house so maybe it belongs to a princess?” asked Sapphire “yeah I agree,” said Pippa “or a fairy?” I asked.


We all looked around. Everything was so tiny in this house.


“There are five tiny beds,” I said, “and a tiny table and sofa” added Sapphire.


Then we heard a noise. It sounded like someone was in here with us.


We all turned around and looked at each other with scared looks on our faces.


“Who’s there?” I asked sounding scared. No answer but we heard them running.


“Someone is definitely in here,” I said “but where? I don’t see anyone else” said Pippa.


I walked around this house.


I stopped because at the corner of my eye, I could see a very small sparkle of glitter.


What could it be?

Chapter 8 – The good fairy


I bent down and there was a tiny fairy sitting in one of the corners of the small cottage curled in a ball.


“Hello there,” I said gently touching the fairy.


I looked very closely at the tiny creature. Her wings were as bright as the sun sparkling in the sunlight. She wore a pink long pretty dress that went to her ankles. Her hair was dark brown so were
her lovely eyes that were looking right at me.


She was the most beautiful creature I have ever seen.


"Guys, I think there's something magical about this part of the forest," I said "that's a fairy. A real fairy. Dominique said there's no such thing as fairies. But that's a real fairy" I said
"don't listen to your sister. She doesn't know anything" said Sapphire.


By this time, the tiny fairy was shaking, curled up in a ball scared.


I bent down again "Hello, I'm Autumn. I've always wanted to meet a fairy. What's your name?" I asked.


To the fairy, I must have been like a giant compared to her.


The fairy looked up at me and smiled. She stood up "I'm Abbie. But what are you doing here?" she asked "We've gotten lost playing hide and seek with my sister. We're on here on a family day out but
Abbie, where are we?" I asked.


Abbie was walking around in her little cottage and she looked at us.


"I'm the fairy queen. This is the kingdom of the enchantress. This part of the forest is hidden from all humans" said Abbie "you can't be here. If Agatha ever finds out" she added running out of
the small cottage "who's Agatha?!" asked Seth "she's my older sister" said Abbie "is she as nice as you?" asked Scott "no" said Abbie "she's evil" she added.


We all looked at each other than at Abbie with confusing looks on our faces.


"Evil? Evil how?" asked Pippa "I'm the good fairy, the queen of this forest and Agatha is the bad fairy. She's my older sister. Our parents have moved on and our mother gave the role of being the
queen of the forest to me instead of Agatha. You would think Agatha would be the new queen because she's the oldest but running an enchanted forest has a lot of responsibility and Agatha's not very
responsible" said Abbie "and our parents told her it was me next in line to be queen. She got very mad at me and we had a big fall out and she hasn't talked to me in 2 years. Now I'm leaving and
this is a bad thing" she added "why?" asked Seth "if I leave then this forest is in danger and all the creatures are also in danger" said Abbie "creatures?" asked Scott.


We all looked at each other than at Abbie.


"Yeah, the forest is enchanted and is full of magical creatures

Chapter nine – Enchanted


“Enchanted? How? What creatures live here with you?” I asked sounding curious “I’m not the only one who lives in this forest,” said Abbie “who else lives here?” asked Sapphire.


Abbie was flying in the sky gracefully.


“Yes, there are loads of creatures,” said Abbie gently landing on the floor and putting her tiny feet onto the ground.


“What sort of creatures?” asked Seth “there’s elves, princesses, giants, more fairies, and an ice princess,” said Abbie “wow, this place is magical,” said Seth “oh and there’s this unicorn,” said
Abbie “unicorn? What’s she called?” I asked “rainbow, she’s super kind and all the creatures love her,” said Abbie.


We all smiled “I can’t wait to meet her” I said, “the fairies’ have fairy dust” said Abbie “how do you get the fairy dust?” I asked, “this is where it gets more magical and enchanted,” said Abbie
“why?” I asked, “we get our fairy dust by Rainbow’s horn,” said Abbie.


We all smiled at Abbie “that is magical. But Abbie, why are you leaving such a magical and enchanted place?” asked Pippa “well since my mum and dad have moved on and left. Agatha has always tried
to take over in my place. But it’s not going to work” said Abbie “I also have a problem” she added, “what’s the problem?” I asked, “would you like a tour of the forest?” asked Abbie.


I knew she had changed the subject on purpose, but I don’t think I would win an argument with a good magical fairy, do you?

Chapter ten – the magical forest


“Yes, absolutely,” said Pippa.


Abbie smiled at us while flying in the blue clear sky with the big bright sun shining.


We reached a small house with an unusual roof.


It was unusual because I’d never seen a roof like it.


There was a small path with round grey pebbles that led us to a small cottage with a small door that was aqua which was a bluey green. There was lots of grass around the tiny house and flowers
dotted everywhere. There was sign that said, “welcome to our fairy cottage” The cottage walls were peachy pink. There were toadstools next to each other by the house. The fairy door was a light
blue and had a brown doorknob. The roof was a bright red and it had what looked like big pebbles on it.


I read it out loud “welcome to our fairy cottage” “this is your cottage, Abbie. It’s very pretty” said Autumn “thank you,” said Abbie “my friend and I live here” she added “there’s more of you?”
asked Pippa sounding interested “yes but only one more. She’s called Ruby” said Abbie “doesn’t your sister live with you?” I asked “no, let’s go,” said Abbie


We decided not to ask any more questions and followed Abbie.


We hadn’t noticed that we had been on a hill.


The small fairy cottage sat on a hill with green grass and different colored leaves and flowers everywhere on the ground.


In the distant, the girls could see a pink castle. It had lots of windows and curtains so you can look at the view of the kingdom. The curtains were all different colours. The walls were pink just
right for princesses. There was a door bridge over the pink front door so people the princesses didn’t like couldn’t get in and two grey paths that led to the front door. Flowers of all different
colors were blooming and blossoming and trees were bright green. There were pink roofs for each little tower of the castle and flags flying in the wind.


“Wow that’s a very pretty pink castle,” said Pippa “yes, I love it” I agreed smiling “guess who lives here?” asked Abbie grinning “princesses?” asked Seth “yes Seth. There are four lovely
princesses” said Abbie “who live here” she added “what are their names?” asked Sapphire “Esme, Fiona, Annika, and Alice,” said Abbie.


We all smiled at the tiny fairy flying in the blue clear sky.


“This forest really is magical,” I thought to myself.


As we walked through the forest, we came upon a giant tree and in that tree, was …


This wasn’t an original tree. In a wooden brown stump, there was a tiny red roof with a tiny red door.


The walls were peachy color. The roof was bright red.


There were pebbles all in a line in front of the door and there was a tiny sign that said, “welcome to our elf house”


“What a sweet little house,” said Scott “yes, three elves live here,” said Abbie “what’s their names?” asked Seth “George, Gabriel and Freddie,” said Abbie.


It was interesting learning all about these different magical creatures.


The next house was across a bridge.


The bridge was brown and grey. It had two lights each end and they were the shape of a circle.


We walked behind Abbie who was flying gracefully.


We stopped halfway and we looked down and we could see a river flowing smoothly.


“There’s a river?!” asked Sapphire “yeah, Maddie the mermaid lives in the sea,” said Abbie “wow, I love mermaids,” said Pippa smiling at Abbie and Abbie smiled back at Pippa.


We stopped looking at the beautiful view that was in front of us.


“How come no one knows about this forest? Why is it hidden away?” asked Sapphire.


Abbie looked at Sapphire “because we don’t want humans finding out about us” said Abbie as we started walking across the bridge again “but Abbie, we’re humans and we’re finding out about you?” I
asked, “yes but you’re all children and you came upon this forest because you got lost playing hide and seek and I can see that you’re not a threat to us because you believe that there are magical
creatures out there,” said Abbie smiling at me and my friends.


As soon as we reached the next house. We looked up and we saw a dark blue palace.


The palace has loads of windows and loads of little towers. It has one window that is a circle and was at the top.


“Woah! That’s a gigantic palace” said Pippa “yes, it’s enormous” I said, “I agree” said Seth “so who lives here Abbie?” I asked, “there’s an evil ice princess that no one likes and she lives here,”
said Abbie “what is her name?” asked Scott “Kathryn,” said Abbie “why is she evil?” asked Pippa. Abbie went quiet and looked at us.


“She lives with my sister,” said Abbie “and they’re planning to take over the forest” she added as we carried on our tour.


We reached the last house. This house was very different from the other houses in the forest.


It is all different shades of brown. It has trees around the cave. The door was dark brown. There were also loads of green crunchy grass around the cave.


“And who lives here? Giants?” asked Pippa “yes, there are three disgusting and mean giants. Who are called Bamberg, Jufog and Warhammer” said Abbie.


“Are they scary giants?” I asked starting to get scared.


Abbie didn’t answer and we headed back to Abbie’s cottage.


When we got back to the usual, colorful houses. We bumped into three girls dressed who wore three dresses.


One of the girls wore a long pink dress, had a tiara on, blue eyes and blonde hair, the second girl had brown hair and green eyes. She wore a light blue grown. The last girl wore a pink top and a
purple skirt with a pink princess' hat. She had black hair and blue eyes.


“Hello Abbie, who are these people with you?” asked one of the girls.

Esme shaking all of our hands. “Esme, we’ve got to sort this problem out,” said Abbie. I looked at Abbie “Abbie, what’s the problem?” I asked. “Well, as you know, my sister is planning to take over
as queen of this forest once I leave,” said Abbie “yes?” I asked. “So, we need all the others before we decide the plan of what to do,” said Abbie “okay, we can gather them all up together,” said
Alice. “Thank you, Alice. I’ve got to get back to my house and see if Ruby is home from her fairy training so look after Autumn and her friends please?” asked Abbie “yes, of course. Go and find
Ruby” said Alice. As the fairy queen flew off, we watched her gracefully. * Abbie arrived safely at her fairy cottage and landed softly on the ground and stepped inside. “Hey Rubes,” said Abbie
“hey abs,” said Ruby. This tiny fairy had short blonde hair and green eyes. She wore a purple dress and little pink shoes. “You’ve got to come and meet my new friends’ rubes. They’re so lovely”
said Abbie “new friends?” asked Ruby “yeah, they’re humans,” said Abbie sounding so calm and relaxed. Ruby looked at Abbie stunned “humans?!” she asked “but the forest is supposed to be hidden from
humans? Abbie, the humans can’t be your friends” said Ruby “why?” asked Abbie “because you made a law against humans entering this part of the forest” said Ruby “specifically you requested it” she
added “yes but these humans are 7 years old. They believe in us rubes. Come on, please meet them. I promise they won’t hurt any of us” said Abbie. Ruby looked at her best friend unsure but nodded.
“Okay,” said Ruby. Abbie smiled and they flew high into the clear blue sky. Back in the other part of the forest where Autumn’s family and her friends’ families were, they were freaking out big
time. “They’ve got to be somewhere. They can’t have just disappeared” said Mrs. Rowe freaking out “okay honey, calm. It’s going to be okay I promise” said Mr. Rowe trying to calm his wife down.
“This is all my fault,” said Dominique. My family and my friends’ families looked at my big sister

“Darling, this isn’t your fault,” said Mrs. Rowe “we will find them. We’ll search day and night until we do find them. I promise everything’s going to be okay” added Mrs. Rowe comforting Dominique.
She smiled at our mum. * Back in the hidden part of the forest, all the creatures, Autumn, and her friends were all gathered together. “Let me introduce you to everyone before we start work on our
plan okay,” said Abbie. I looked at my friends then we looked at the magical creatures. The magical creatures looked back at us.


“Okay, so this is George the elf,” said Abbie.


George wore some blue t-shirt and trousers with a green hat with a bobble and green shoes that went up. He is the kindest out of the three elves, his best friends are Gabriel and Freddie. He had
blue eyes I held out my hand to George and we shocked each other’s hands and grinned at each other “this is Gabriel” said Abbie. We looked at the second elf. He wore a red t-shirt with blue quarter
length trousers with green shoes and a red pointy hat. He had brown eyes.


We looked at Gabriel and we shocked each other’s hands and smiled. “and this is Freddie,” said Abbie. Freddie wore a green and red t-shirt with green trousers with a red belt and blue boots and a
red and green hat. He had green eyes. “Hello,” said Freddie “nice to meet you,” said Pippa “I’ve never met an elf before” she added. Sapphire just stood there frozen and didn’t say a word.


Freddie looked at Sapphire “nice to meet you miss?” asked Freddie. Sapphire looked at me with a nervous look on her face. I encouraged Sapphire to step forward. “Miss Sapphire,” said Sapphire “sir”
she added quickly smiling “please to meet you, Miss Sapphire,” said Freddie shaking Sapphire’s hand. “I’m Gabriel, it’s nice to meet all of you,” said Gabriel shaking all our hands and smiling.
“So, what are we going to do about saving the forest?” asked Abbie “Abbie, I have a question?” asked Seth “sure, what is it?” asked Abbie “why isn’t Agatha living with you?” asked Scott. Abbie was
in shocked and speechless with this question.

Chapter thirteen – the plan


Startled by this out of the blue question. Abbie flew into the air looking down at all the humans and creatures below her and then signed with annoyance while landing on the ground so gracefully.
The fairy queen looked at all of us.


“There was a battle between Agatha and I,” said Abbie “battle?” asked Pippa “was it a bad battle?” asked Seth “yes, it was a really bad battle. There was magic involved” said Abbie.


We all looked shocked “what type of magic?” asked Scott.


Abbie paused for a moment and we all waited patiently.


Abbie smiled “yes, it was bad magic. Since you don’t know the whole story I’m going to tell you. Agatha and I were never close even when we were growing up. She always pulled away from me. I didn’t
know what I did wrong. When I started at the same fairy school, she still pulled away from me and as we got older, it got worse” said Abbie “how worse?” asked Pippa “so worse that she ended up
using her wand, spells, and magic on me” said Abbie. I looked at Abbie “what sort of magic?” asked Scott “Bad magic. Agatha was always jealous of me. My parents gave me everything I wanted. I was
spoiled and they tried to get us closer but Agatha just kept pulling away and that’s when she met Belladonna and that’s when she became evil. Belladonna was evil and taught Agatha all her evil
tricks and spells. But then my parents decided to leave the forest and had to pick the new fairy queen between me and Agatha. We both fought each other until it was decided that I was the next one
in line to be the fairy queen. That’s when Agatha and I had the big fall out. She said that she was the oldest, she should be next in line but my parents thought I was more responsible and better
suited for the role. Agatha didn’t like it. That was the day I lose her. That was the day I lose my sister to evil” said Abbie.


The fairy queen had tears coming down her face. I looked at her.


I put my hand in my bag and found a packet of tissues and took one thin tissue out and gave it to Abbie.


Abbie smiled at me as she wiped her eyes “thank you, Autumn, you’re very kind” said Abbie.


She coughed “what are we going to do to save the forest?” asked Abbie “may I suggest something?” I asked “yes, of course,” said Abbie “we trick Agatha into thinking she’s the next fairy queen but
really she isn’t,” I said.


All the creatures looked amazed and clapped at my idea “excellent suggestion, Miss Autumn” said George “very excellent indeed” said Gabriel “well done” said Freddie. All three elves looked at me
and smiled.


So that was our plan to save the forest.

Chapter fourteen – Saving the forest


"There's still no sign of them," said Mrs, Rowe "what if someone hurt her or something has happened" asked Mrs. Rowe "honey, don't think like that okay? We will find them I promise" said Mr, Rowe.


Mrs. Rowe smiled at her husband.


* Back in the hidden part of the forest, Autumn and her friends with all the creatures were inside the princess castle.


"This castle is so pretty, there's so much pink," said Pippa "it's so pretty Alice," said Sapphire "thank you, Sapphire," said Alice.


"So how are we going to trick my sister into thinking she's the next fairy queen?" asked Abbie "we've got to go to her place and tell her and make her think she's next in line" said Alice "but what
if she doesn't believe us?" asked Abbie sounding worried "Abbie, this is your sister we're talking about" said Esme "true, she used to believe anything I said when we were little" said Abbie "but
if we're going to convince Agatha and tell her she's the next fairy queen, we'll have to go to her ice palace" said Abbie.


I looked at my friends scared and terrified.


"Are you sure that's a good idea?" asked Alice "yes, I'll be fine?" said Abbie.


We all looked at Abbie "Abbie, are you sure you want to go? I mean you haven't seen or spoken to Agatha in over a year. She doesn't even talk to you anymore" said Esme "I know but if I don't go and
face her then we won't be able to save the forest from being in danger" said Abbie and she flew up to the air, did a little twirl and we had no choice but to follow her.


"What is Agatha like?" I asked "she's evil, horrible, selfish, lazy, she treats everyone else like her slave. She was banned to the other side for a reason and she does all of this to everyone
especially to Abbie" said Annika "that's horrible to treat your own sister like that" I said, "I don't get along with Dominique, my older sister but I know not to treat her like that" I said, "I
know" said Annika.


I looked at Abbie who was flying in the blue sky, her wings spread out and they sparkled in the sky. As we walked along the bridge to get to the ice palace, we heard a big splash …

Chapter fifteen – Good vs Evil


“What was that?” I asked grabbing Pippa’s arm “I don’t,” said Pippa “know” she finished trying not to panic.


“Oh, don’t worry she won’t bite,” said Abbie “she?” asked Seth “yeah, Maddie the mermaid,” said Abbie smiling.


We smiled at Abbie “there’s a real mermaid living here?” asked Pippa “yes, would you like to meet her?” asked Abbie “she’s super friendly. You’ll love her” she added “sure,” said Sapphire.


Abbie smiled and bent over the rail of the bridge and looked down into the blue ocean.


We watched the water flow smoothly down the river.


“Maddie? There are people here to see you” Abbie called out.


No sign of the mermaid.


“Mads?” she called out again.


We waited patiently


10 minutes later, a tiny head pops up from underneath the water.


“Hey abs, what’s going on?” the mermaid asked “I would like you to meet my new friends,” said Abbie “hang on, we’ll go across the bridge and close to you so you can hear us better,” said Abbie.


We all followed the fairy across the bridge, walked down a little hill where the ocean was and we all went down. Maddie swam across the ocean to us.


Maddie smiled and held out her wet hand “these are your new friends?” she asked “yes, Autumn, Pippa, Sapphire, Scott, and Seth” said Abbie smiling at each of us.


“Please to meet all of you,” said Maddie and she shook all our hands.


“So how come you’re coming this way? That side is dark and dangerous. In other ways, it’s evil. Your sister lives there and she’s evil. You’re the good fairy Abbie. You haven’t seen your sister in
over a year” said Maddie “yes, I know. But I need to do this otherwise the forest is in danger” said Abbie “oh, no. that’s not good. We can’t lose our home. You must save it. Good luck and nice to
meet all of you” said Maddie and she swam away.


As we came to the ice palace where Agatha lived.


The sky turned dark and the clouds turned grey and drew in closer.


I looked at my friends and the creatures.


“Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea,” I said sounding frightened.


Abbie landed on the ground and she knocked on the blue ice door.

Chapter sixteen – Lost and Found


As we knocked on the door, we heard an echo and footsteps coming towards the door.


The door opened and there stood a princess who wore a long purple dress, a blue cape on her back and a crown on her long blonde hair.


“What do you want?” the princess asked coldly and recognized Abbie in an instant.


A cold shivered ran past me.


“I’m here to talk to my sister Agatha, Kathryn. Can we come in?” asked Abbie politely.


Kathryn looked at me and my friends looking suspicious.


“Who are they?” asked Kathryn.


Abbie looked at us then back at Kathryn


“They’re my fairy” Abbie paused and had to think of what to say next “friends” she finished.


Abbie looked at Kathryn hoping she believed the lie.


“Okay,” she said “come in I suppose. Agatha’s not going to be happy you just turning up like this” said Kathryn “DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING” said Kathryn.


We followed Kathryn into a big room that had ice crystals hanging from the ceiling. There was an ice throne centered in the middle of the room. There was a big window behind the throne and the sun
shown brightly through and there sat a fairy who wore a green dress, had brown hair and brown eyes.


She looked at us shocked to see Abbie after all this time.


“That can’t be your …” I stopped “yep, that’s my sister,” said Abbie answering my question.


* Back in the other part of the forest, Autumn’s family along with her friends’ families were walking around in the forest. “Where are we?” asked Mrs, Rowe “I have no idea mum. Are we lost?” asked
Dominique.


My big sister Tanya spotted a sign “mum, I think I know where we are and I have a feeling Autumn and her friends are here too” said Tanya “where are we then?” asked my big sister Pippa.


Tanya pointed at the sign that said, “Welcome to the Forest of Enchantress”


“Well let’s go,” said Mrs. Rowe pushing her other three daughters and a clueless husband forward and the rest of everyone followed.


* Back in the hidden part of the forest, we stepped forward towards Agatha and she looked at Abbie. “Hello, my dear sister, Abbie after all this time,” said Agatha coldly “Hello Agatha, I have come
to tell you something” said Abbie “oh, am I the next fairy queen like it should have been at the beginning” said Agatha with an attitude and standing up facing her sister.


Abbie looked at us behind her. She looked nervous and then looked back at Agatha whose eyebrows were up.


“Yes?” asked Agatha “that’s actually correct” Abbie lied “really? So, you’re leaving?” asked Agatha “yes,” said Abbie.


Agatha looked at Abbie suspiciously.


Agatha smiled awkwardly at her baby sister “oh, well okay thanks. You can go now” she said.


As we walked outside the ice palace, I looked ahead and I saw my mum and my dad standing against a tree and smiled at me.


“Mummy, daddy” I shouted and I ran towards them followed by all my friends.

Chapter seventeen – The decision


“Oh my god, you found me,” I said hugging my mum “oh, I can’t believe it. My baby girl” said Mrs. Rowe smiling at me.


Dominique watched me and smiled awkwardly “hey,” she said “hi,” I said “Autumn, I am so sorry I was horrible to you. Are you okay?” asked Dominique “Dom, it’s okay. Don’t worry” I said smiling and
hugged my big sister tightly and my big sister hugged me back tight.


“Autumn, are you okay? You’re not hurt, are you?” asked Mr. Rowe “no, daddy I am fine. Our new friends have been looking after us very well” I said, “could we meet them?” asked Mrs. Rowe “of course
mummy” I said “this is Abbie, Ruby the fairies, Alice, Annika and Esme the princesses, George, Freddie, and Gabriel the elves. There’s an ice princess called Kathryn and Agatha and Belladonna the
fairies. Agatha is Abbie’s older sister who is trying to take over this part of the forest but don't worry, we’ve tricked her into thinking she’s the new fairy queen because Abbie is leaving” I
said taking a breath “well done for trying to save the forest. Agatha sounds cruel” said Tanya “oh, she is Miss,” said Abbie “Tanya,” said Tanya “Miss Tanya” finished Abbie.


We all smiled at each other. “Thank you for looking after Autumn and her friends but we really must get home now,” said Mr. Rowe.


I looked at my dad stunned.


“What? No daddy, please we’ve got to save the forest from being in danger” I said “please, just one more week or two” I begged.


My parents both looked at each other than at me and signed “okay darling. We’ll help you” said Mr. Rowe “thank you, daddy,” I said smiling.


10 minutes later, Abbie landed on the ground.


We all looked at Abbie “where did you go?” asked Sapphire “Autumn, you have a very important decision to make” said Abbie “and Ruby, I’ve got some good news for you” she added.


Her best friend looked at her “what is it?” asked Ruby “you are the next fairy queen in charge of the Forest of Enchantress. It would’ve have been my sister but she let us all down and you are like
my sister” said Abbie.


Ruby looked stunned at her best friend. “Abbie, I don’t know what to say” Ruby began “thank you so much. You are like my sister too” said Ruby and she came over to Abbie and they hugged.


“What decision do I have to make Abbie?” I asked, “whether to live here with all of us or go home with your family,” asked Abbie.


Everyone looked at me and waited for me to answer.

Abbie looked at me and waited.


“Well I want to stay here but I want to go home,” I said “mummy,” I said, “help me” I added starting to panic “okay darling, calm and take deep breaths,” said Mrs. Rowe.


I looked at my mum and took some deep breathes in and out “you okay now?” asked my sister Pippa “yes, I am fine thank you and I have made my mind up” I said “okay darling, whatever you decide, we
will support you” said Mrs, Rowe “yes, 100%” said my sister Pippa.


Everyone looked at me waiting.


“I’m going home with my family,” I said.


All the creatures sighed with disappointment.


“But we’ve got to save the forest first” I insisted.


All the creatures cheered with happiness.


“We’ve got to go back to your sister’s house,” I said “why?” asked Abbie “because we need to prepare ourselves for the big battle,” I said.


All my friends looked at me shortly after my family.


“Battle? What battle?” asked Alice “the battle against good vs evil to save the forest from being in danger,” I said and we started walking towards the ice palace.


When we got there, we didn’t knock, we went right inside and walked past Kathryn who had a stunned look on her face.


Agatha, however, was sat on her ice throne when we came up to her.


“I thought I told you to go away?” asked Agatha “we did but then I thought to myself. Why is my sister so evil?” asked Abbie “why is it that my big sister became so evil? What made you want to
become evil Agatha?” said Abbie looking at her sister and we all waited.

Agatha looked at her little sister.


“you really believe I’ve still got good magic inside of me?” asked Agatha “I always have and always will. You’re my sister. We were both raised by good fairies” said Abbie “that’s the nicest thing
you’ve ever said to me” said Agatha smiling at Abbie. Abbie smiled back and they hugged.


“I’m so sorry I was so horrible to you all,” said Agatha “especially you Abbie. Will you forgive me?” she added “yes, of course, I will. Will you help us save our home?” asked Abbie “of course”
said Agatha.


“Everyone smiled at Agatha “we’ve got to save the forest. Belladonna is planning a big battle. That’s why we need to prepare ourselves. They’re planning to stop ruby becoming the new fairy queen” I
said.


“That’s so evil,” I said, “what can we do to help?” asked Pippa “could you go and get Rainbow?” asked Abbie “Rainbow?” asked Sapphire “yeah, she’s a unicorn. She should be around here somewhere”
said Alice “okay, we’ll go on a unicorn hunt to find Rainbow” I said.


* “Where would a magical unicorn be?” I asked, “try and think like a unicorn,” said Mrs, Rowe “if you were a unicorn, where would you go in a magical forest?” asked Mr, Rowe.


I thought about being a unicorn then the idea came to me.


“I know where she is,” I said and I ran with everyone following.


* “So what are we going to do?” asked Alice “yeah, Belladonna would be getting ready. The battle is in two days” said Agatha “okay, here’s what we’re going to do. We wait and get ready for the
battle but before that, we wait for Autumn and friends to come back with Rainbow. We use Rainbow’s horn to charge our wands then we fight to save the forest” said Abbie looking at the other
creatures.


“I believe we can win this and save our beloved home,” said Abbie. Everyone smiled at Abbie.

Chapter twenty – the battle


Meanwhile, my friends, our families, I was still on the hunt for Rainbow when we saw a horse shape figure with a horn on her head.


Her skin, tail, and mane were dark brown, her feet were white and she had shiny black eyes.


We came over to the creature.


I stroke the creature’s mane “this must be Rainbow” I said.


The creature smiled at us “hello” she said.


We stared at the creature “hello, are you Rainbow?” I asked “yes, who are you?” asked Rainbow “I am Autumn, this is Pippa Watts, Sapphire Wood, Seth Clarke, and Scott Toogood,” I said “it’s a
pleasure to meet you,” said Rainbow “it’s a pleasure to meet you to Rainbow. We need your help” I said and we all looked at the confused unicorn.


“The Forest of Enchantress is in danger,” said Pippa “why? What’s going on?” asked Rainbow “Agatha was trying to take over the forest once Abbie left but now Agatha and Abbie have reunited. Agatha
isn’t bad anymore. But now we’ve got to save the forest against Belladonna and Kathryn and the mean giants before they destroy the forest” said Pippa “take me to Abbie” said Rainbow “Abbie sent us
to find you and help us” said Seth “I’ll help, we can’t lose our home” said Rainbow.


* Back at Abbie’s fairy cottage, the creatures were nervously waiting for Kathryn and Belladonna.


Abbie kept flying up and down in a line in the sky.


“Abs, don’t be so nervous!” said Agatha.


Just then, all of us with Rainbow was followed by Kathryn and Belladonna.


“Agatha, where have you been?” asked Kathryn outraged “I’ve been with my sister,” said Agatha and she quickly took out her wand.


And the battle to save the forest had begun.


All the fairies took out their wands and pointed them at Kathryn and Belladonna.


“Agatha, why are you on their side? This was your idea. Why are you backing out now when we are so close to getting the forest?” shouted Kathryn “because I’m good and I was raised by good fairies”
said Agatha.


Agatha smiled and Kathryn signed angrily and dropped her wand and smiled at the good fairies.


Abbie and Agatha’s bond as sisters was fixed.


Can all the creatures along with their new friends work together to save the forest against three disgusting, mean and vomiting giants?

“But what are we going to do about the giants?” asked George.


“Giants?” I asked “yes, they’re horrible,” said Kathryn.


We all looked at each other.


“Oh no,” said Pippa “do they eat humans?” I asked “no, don’t worry,” said Abbie as Abbie said this. We heard big loud footsteps coming towards us.


Three enormous, very massive and ugly giants thumped over to us.


“HELLO” shouted one of the giants down to us “hello,” said Abbie feeling frightened.


No one spoke for 10 minutes then Abbie cleared her throat and looked up.


“Jufog, Bambrag, and Warhammer. You must leave this forest. The battle is over and we’ve won. You have no place here” said Abbie “WHY SHOULD WE LEAVE?” shouted Bambrag “you have no choice” said
Abbie “and we don’t want you here” she added and she looked up above the three giants. There were three airplanes with hocks flying from them and the hocks caught the backs of the giant’s jackets
and lifted them up into the air and flew off with all three giants arguing with each other.


All the creatures and their new friends watched the giants fly into the distant.


As soon as the giants were gone and disappeared. All the creatures and their new friends jumped up and down with big smiles on their faces.


“We did it. We saved the Forest of Enchantress” shouted Abbie smiling “well-done everyone and I have an announcement” added Abbie.

We all looked at the happy fairy.


“Now, that the Giants have left and Agatha, Kathryn, and Belladonna have changed their ways and become good and the Forest of Enchantress is saved. I must go” said Abbie.


All the creatures started talking to each other.


“She’s right. We have to go home as well” I said sounding sad.


“But we don’t want any of you to go,” said Agatha “Agatha, my place is no longer needed here. I must go” said Abbie “same with us. We have our own homes to go back too in the human world” said
Pippa “but we will miss you” said George “we will miss you too. You never know, we might end up lost playing hide and seek again and bump into you” said Sapphire “I hope so Sapphire” said Gabriel
smiling at all of us “more fun adventures await” said Esme “I guess this is goodbye” said Alice.


Abbie smiled “before we all say our goodbyes. I would like to tell you all something very exciting” said Abbie “what is it?” I asked. “As you all know, I had to make a very hard choice about who
the new fairy queen will be after I leave and I’ve had a good few days to decide,” said Abbie.


We all looked at Abbie “who is it?” asked my sister Pippa “it isn’t going to be just one person in charge. It’s going to be two” said Abbie “yeah?” we all asked together getting inpatient.


“The new fairies charge of the Forest of Enchantress is going to be,” said Abbie pausing for breath …


Abbie looked at us and smiled.


“Ruby,” said Abbie “and Agatha” she added looking at her big sister and best friend.


Agatha looked at Abbie “Abbie, why?” asked Agatha “because it should have been you along and you’ve proved to be responsible and mum and dad would have been very proud of you just like I am” said
Abbie “thank you, sis. I won’t let you down I promise” said Agatha “thank you, Abbie. We won’t let you down and I expect visits every so often okay” said Ruby “deal” said Abbie and the three
fairies hugged.


My friends, our families and I looked at the creatures and smiled.


“Time to go. See you again soon for more fun adventures” I said and all the creatures hugged each one of us “thank you, Autumn, for everything. If it weren’t for you. The forest would still be in
danger” said Abbie “I’m always up for adventures” I said smiling and with that, the creatures waved as we all left the magical Forest of Enchantress.


Just proves that if you believe, you could end up just about anywhere even an enchanted forest with magical creatures inside.
