\"TheDeep within the haunted wood, beside the magic brook, far away from harm or hurt, where humans never look. A meeting, there, was being held, for something was amiss. For someone had indeed snuck in and stole a fairy kiss.The one so bold, to do this deed, stole power from the fae. She couldn't lift or move her wings, she couldn't fly away.

\"TheThe water nymphs and woodland elves were gathered round the Fae, The Selkie and Siren sat with Pixies in the glade. The unicorns, were also there, for they had heard it too. The whole Enchanted Forest would decide on what to do. The stealing of a fairy kiss was very bad indeed. For that upsets the balance that the forest creatures need.


"Will this meeting come to order!" said the Elder of the Wood. "We must decide on how to find the culprit, if we could!".

"Who dared to kiss this fairy child? Step forth, and show your face!"  But not one woodfolk dared come forth revealing his disgrace..


\"TheThe fairy child, Athelwine, which means 'The Friend of Elves, stood listening to the Elder speak and thought quickly to herself.

She wasn't sure she understood why everyone was mad, she couldn't fly or use her dust, is that why they were sad? Should she tell the Elder that she gave the kiss away? That no thief roamed the Wood tonight, or any other day? Then, just as Athelwine stepped forth, a husky voice spoke up," Please, Elder, sir, may I approach and add my thoughts on this? Twas I who caused all this distress, twas I received the kiss." 


The speaker was a goblin boy, as ugly as could be. With eyes too small and feet too big, and hairy, knobby knees. His bulbous nose was sniffling, and his body shook with fright. Whatever would they do to him, to set this wrong to right?

The Elder looked in outrage at the ugly Goblin child, "How DARE you kiss the fairy girl, you should be locked in chains! You've broke the law within the Wood, by all that is ordained! How many here agree that we should banish him for good? We have no need for foolish deeds and thieves within the Wood."

Athelwine stepped forward then, too overwhelmed with guilt."Stop!" she cried. "Please, let him be! 'Twas not the Goblins fault! I gave the kiss away to him, he didn't steal a thing. I gave it to him freely just to hear the Goblin sing!"

\"The "His voice was like an angel," Athelwine explained,"his voice so pure and beautiful, like rainbows through the rain. He even made the flowers grow, so perfect was his song. I gave the kiss away to him, he has done nothing wrong!"

The Elder, shocked to silence, scratched his head in disbelief.For if the kiss was given freely, he could not call him a thief. He pondered for a moment, thinking, I don't have a clue...When suddenly, it came to him, I know what I should do!

"Come forth!", he called the Goblin boy, "come forward if you may, for I have come to a conclusion to save the flightless fae.Since the kiss was freely given, and the Fae was not attacked, the answer here is obvious, just give the kiss right back!"

\"TheThe Goblin boy looked up and grinned, and clapped his hands with joy, and Athelwine stepped up to him, "Now kiss me, Goblin boy". He reached up very tenderly, and kissed her satin cheek, her eyes so blue and beautiful, it made his knees go weak. Her wings unfolded as they stood, and Athelwine then flew, above the forest, through the trees and all around the Woods. The Unicorns and Sirens, the Selkie and the Fae, all cheered and laughed for joy on such a happy day.

The Elder looked opon the creatures, dancing with delight, and melted back into the Wood, while whispering,"Goodnight". \"The
