"What the hell is a changeling?!" I shout. Lucy scurries out the room, Robbie follows her and I follow Robbie.
"A changeling is a gremlin. They come in place of younger kids, they're parents send them to do it." He opens the door and shuts it before we get hit by a book.
"How do we get rid of it?!" I gasp. "And how to you know all this stuff?!" I add
"Well , princess , I'm not who you think I am."
"Stop calling me princess!" I shout, "but you're Robbie Goodfellow aren't you?" I look up at him, my arms wrapped around myself.
"Kind of, have you read midsummer nights dream, by Shakespeare?" He asks placing his hands on my shoulders.
"Yea ." I whisper.
"Who's the jester?"
"Robin Goodfellow. He's Oberon's jester. He likes making mischief around the courts, summer and winter. Why?"
"You won't believe me but I'm robin Goodfellow from midsummer nights dream." He studies my expression.
"Prove it!" I laugh.
"Okay princess. But don't say you never asked for it." He takes a step back and a group of sparrows surround him , enclosing him in the flock they made. The sparrows disappear and so did Robbie. I feel a hand on my shoulder. I turn around. A scream escaped my throat. A boy stood behind me, with blazing orange hair, and bright vibrant green eyes. Freckles specked his cheeks, I back away.
"Do you believe me now, princess?" He asks.
"Robbie is that you?" He nods, " but that's impossible." I mumble.
"Oh! Nothing impossible , princess! " he chuckles.
"You're really Robin Goodfellow!" I gasp.
"The one and only." He smiles spreading out his arms. "They also know me as Puck . So call me Puck." I think about it. I had known him as Robbie Goodfellow . All the stuff that happened when I was around him. Like a caretakers hair setting on fire once she said something nasty about me. I just thought it may of been coincidence.
"You're taking this of fully well, princess.." He mumbles looking me over.
"You should feel my heart then." My heart felt like it was trying to hammer it's way through my ribs. In a dash Robbie is over his hand on my chest, where my heart is.
"Oh yes." He mumbles. " I won't hurt you princess. That's one of the things if never do." He says smiling warmly. My heart starts to slow down no longer trying to hammer it's way through.
"So how do we get rid of this changeling?" I ask/ whisper.
"Well I could give you something that will make you forget what you have saw." I shake my head quickly , I wanted Lucy back! "Or we can go into Neverever and get her back, which forces the changeling to leave the premises. " he takes in a breath. " but honestly I like the stuck the changeling into the oven tradition." He laughs. " the parents with finally weaken to the cries and come and take it back."
"What's Neverever?" I ask.
"Neverever is my home, princess." A flash of longing spreads across his face.
"Guessing we're going to NeverEver then." If I'm being honest I just didn't have the guys to shove the thing in the oven. "How do we get there?" I look at him.
"Where there is a lot of imagination. Like a child's wardrobe. Excuse me." Rob turned to the door. " knock knock!" He said. There was quietness then something got hurled at the door.
"Go away!" Snarled the voice from within.
"Ah, no. That's not how the joke goes." Called rob. "I say 'knock knock' and you're supposed to answer with 'who's there?'."
"Nope that's still wrong." Robbie seemed unperturbed . I however was horrified by Lucy's language , though I knew it wasn't her. "Here ," continued Rob in a amiable voice. "I'll go through the whole thing, so you'll know how to answer next time." He cleared his throat and pounded the door again. "knock knock! "He bellowed. "Who's there? Puck! Puck who? Puck who will turn you into a squealing pig if you don't get out of our way!" And with that he banged the door open.
The thing that looked like Lucy stood on the bed, with a hiss it hurled a paperback book. Robbie dodged , but however it hit me square in the stomach. I grunted.
"Please." Muttered Robbie. And all the books off the shelf went flying towards Lucy on the bed. She hisses and scurries under the bed quickly we climbed over the mess and stood infront if the wardrobe . Robbie opened it and out shot a hand.
It hisses, "mine!" It screamed. "My closet, mine!"
Robbie sighed, "bogies." He muttered , he knocked the wardrobe three times and it flew open. The bogey was gone. Robbie stepped into the wardrobe . He ran his hand along the back of the wardrobe. "Where are you?" he muttered "come on... Ah ha." He crouched down and blew against the wall. A powder of dust blew off of it. Once it disappeared there was a golden handle. He held out his hand. "Come on , princess." I told his hand and he shut the wardrobe door the same time he opened the other. He stepped through it with a sigh of pleasure and I followed him. We stood in a forest with weird shaped trees and a lake that ran the length if it. "Home.." Robbie breathed.
This chapter literally took me like 4 tries to do. I kept forgetting to press the tick in the corner and is turn it off when I heard someone come up the stairs (supposed to be sleeping, school.) so the 3rd I was just about crying. It was soo ANNOYING! Anyways . Love you!
