My name is Yodol Shoozy. You may think that’s not a great name to have, but it’s pretty decent if you live in Rainbowville. Rainbowville has a few dozen apartment buildings and shops, a library, a school, a forest, and our ranch. Here in Rainbowville, we breed unicorns. My family consists of expert unicorn breeders. My dad told me that our ancestors were the first unicorn breeders ever and founded our currently great town of Rainbowville. My dad is this really buff guy, like from an action movie, but he has the courage of a mouse. He will cower in fear from just about any wild animal or bug, and still shivers in front of our unicorns. My mom is this blonde woman who is so short, that I’m just about taller than her. We live on a unicorn ranch on the outskirts of Downtown Rainbowville and we breed and sell unicorns for a living. It’s a pretty good way to live here. My favorite spot in Rainbowville is the library. The library was completely empty today. In fact, it always is. I’m literally the only one, much less the only twelve year old, that uses it. I mean, the librarian never even comes here! The shelves and the floor are piled with dust, which I despise walking in and putting my hands through. My dad told me I was the first one to use this library in a five hundred years, which is why it was really dusty when I started using it. I looked over all the books for the millionth time, but still couldn’t find a good book to read. I already read Froggy the Magical Whale, The Uninteresting Adventures of Dave the Dandelion, and Unicorns: The Most Terrifying Beasts Ever. However, I haven’t read How to Summon Demons yet. I decided to take out How to Summon Demons this week. I pulled it out of the shelf. Dust flew everywhere and I choked on it. This is what happens every week, but it’s worth the book. I don’t know why everyone stopped reading five hundred years ago, but I know that books really are educational. My teachers discourage me from reading books, claiming that they are “a waste of time,” but I sometimes actually learn things from them. I open How to Summon Demons and look at the check-out card. The last entry said 1902, which was exactly five hundred years ago. I know I don’t have to sign the card, because no one actually checks, but I do anyway. I don’t know why. Maybe people will start to read again and recognize my name when they sign it. Anyways, I go home with the book in my backpack. I go home on a fairy bus, a light, speedy bus operated fairy magic. Although it’s not exactly a smooth ride, it is almost as fast as a speeding bullet! Or, it feels as fast as a speeding bullet, because I want to vomit after every ride. Anyways, I get to my apartment and hear my little brother playing games on his computer up in his room. I never knew why, but he likes to blast the speakers on his computer when playing games so the whole world hears what he’s doing. “Hey, Yodol!” he screeches down to me. “Hello, Pardols.” I reply back. “Hey, Yoddy! How you doing?” That’s my dad. My mom says hi to me and I go up to my room. I take the book out of my backpack and drop it on the floor. It lands with a hard thud. I open the book to the first page. “Table of Contents” is written on the top. The first chapter is called “How to summon demons” and the second chapter is called “Acknowledgements.” The first chapter talks about having to go into a forest in the middle of the night and having to chant three “magic” words exactly 14 times. Now both of us are probably thinking the same thing, that this is all crazy nonsense. I start to get mad at this book, because this is the most stupid thing I’ve ever seen, with silly concepts that just can’t work. I really just want to do the crazy chant to prove that it won’t work. I assume that the author means any forest is able to contain the chant, so that night I sneak out of the house and run to the forest near the town. I start laughing when I get there, thinking how stupid this will be, which also makes me think why I even wanted to do this in the first place. Oh, well. There’s no turning back now. I take out the book and open to the page with the instructions. “Ibbity-gloop! Ribbity-tock! Flounder-glarg!” I chant. This is the most embarrassing thing I have ever done. I’m glad my brother isn’t here to kill me. I counted the times I spoke. 10, 11, 12, 13… I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to say the final one, in case there will be real demons. No I’m just being an idiot. There won’t be real demons. I said the final chant. All of a sudden, the ground started shaking. I hear a bam, like the sound thunder makes, except a hundred times louder. Trees around me start crashing down and everything is shaking out of control. At first I’m thinking that it’s some natural disaster, but then I realize what it really is. Out of the ground comes a giant demon! I can’t believe it actually worked! All the senseless chanting worked! The demon is the ugliest creature I have ever seen. It’s head looked like a bat’s head, it has razor sharp teeth that are sticking out everywhere, and it has the body of a gorilla. Even worse, his skin color is all red! I picked up the book and start madly flipping through it. I am freaking out right now, trying to find the solution to this terrible problem. I can't believe what happened! I was actually able to summon a demon! It couldn't have happened. It shouldn't have happened. But it did happen. And now I have to fix it. Five minutes later, I'm still looking in the book for solution. I look up and I see the demon flying in the sky. I guess I never noticed the wings before. I look back down at the book and I see something I haven't seen before. It clearly says in bold \"TO STOP THE DEMONS, USE UNICORN MAGIC.\" I don't have time to wonder why I didn't clearly see that sentence earlier and I take off to my unicorn ranch. After what seems like forever, I finally make it to the farm. I climb over the fence guarding the unicorns. I see a pink one and a blue one. I jump onto the pink one. At first, it neighs loudly, but then softly purrs. I don't know how I can make it move, so I just kick it and it starts to charge forward. I felt like I was on a rollercoaster! I never rode a unicorn this fast before. The ride was bumpy, but we made it to Rainbowville without an accident. When we got there, the demon was already terrorizing Rainbowville. He was breaking glass and kicking down walls. Upon seeing the demon, the unicorn neighed louder than I thought possible. Then, its horn started to glow and spasm everywhere. Then a giant orb was released from the horn like an arrow from a bow. It went so fast I could barely see it! It hit the demons and it exploded in flames! I start to panic because this is too much for me to take in. I feel excited and scared at the same time. But I also feel sad, like something important was taken from me. I think I must have passed out, because the next thing I know it's daytime and I'm lying on the street. I get up and see that the demons are gone, but the whole town is a mess. Windows are broken, broke glass is on the sidewalk, and there are potholes everywhere. I wish I hadn’t read that book. It only caused me misery and pain. Even if I did learn something.
