Hello there! I am Mia. I am here to tell you my dream last night.

I was deep in my sleep and suddenly I got up as there were some noises. It was very different, something like someone is flapping its wings. Did a bird come inside? But that can’t be. I always keep my windows closed. Also, it doesn’t look like this is from some bird as the noise was coming from my drawer. But my drawer was full of my make-up stuff like nail polish, earrings and necklaces. How can my make-up stuff fly? They can’t.

I was little scared and curious, so I went closer to my drawer. I slowly opened it and what I saw was astonishing. I could see a fairy! She looked exactly like my barbie doll. Maybe my doll turned into a fairy. But this fairy was not the kind of fairy you are probably thinking of. She had a white coat. She seemed to have her lab glasses on. Isn’t she dressed like a scientist?  Oh yes, she is a scientist-fairy. This was so exciting!

I had never seen a fairy before, especially a scientist-fairy. In all this excitement, I managed to say, “Are you a fairy?” Even though she looked like one, I just wanted to make sure. She replied, “Yes, I am a fairy. My name is Alice.’’ I said, “My name is Mia.” I said, “You look a bit surprised.” She answered, “Well, I am surprised because, I thought humans know how fairies look like. I was wondering what’s your doubt about.” After that, she paused. She slowly looked at me.

Uh oh. I didn’t know what was going to happen, but I could sense the excitement growing over me. Maybe it was going to be more exciting than I could imagine. Within a few seconds of staring at each other, she spoke to me, “Do you want to come with me to my home, the scientist fairy-world? I would like to invite you to my world because I think my friends would love to meet you. Also, I can talk about you to our queen scientist. She loves to meet new fairies. I guess she would be more excited to meet you as you are not a fairy.” She waited for my response. I answered, “Sure, but when will we be coming back home? I don’t want my parents to think that I am lost and get worried.” She answered “Well, time stops here in this world when you enter scientist land. So, nobody would notice if you come to my world.” I was puzzled but simply said “Ok.”

She took out a wand which was rainbow colored and had a small figure of a scientist on it. She said, “The scientist figure on the top of wand is our head.” Oh. Maybe everyone in that land had the same tiny figure on top of their wands. Suddenly a lighting bolt came out of her wand and I heard her casting a spell. “Lighting bolt out of my wand, take us to scientist land!” She said and I felt myself lifting up. Soon I felt a tingling on my back. When I saw what was happening, I realized, wings were coming out. It seemed, I was also becoming like a fairy. I tried to flutter. Sure enough, I started to rise in the air. She told me to follow her. I fluttered with her.

She led me inside a lab and what I saw inside were hundreds and hundreds of scientist-fairies! One of them was whispering to the other “Who is she?” The other fairy whispered “I don’t know. She is not from here, that’s for sure.” I could hear them. And they were all staring at me. Alice suddenly stopped for a moment and then gestured a fairy to follow her. She had a small name tag. It said Emma. She stayed close to Alice but looked afraid of me. That surprised me because I thought of the moment when I opened my drawer and Alice didn’t fly away. Alice must be brave. She just stared at me for a few moments. Then she looked away. I felt like she was watching me every time I turned my head away from her. Soon Alice decided to make me talk to that fairy. She said, “Emma, meet Mia.” The fairy slowly came close and said “Hi”, in a really faint voice. After that she dashed behind Alice. She must be scared of me. I decided to try to talk to her. I started to say, “Your name is Emma, right?” She said, yes. I tried something else. Something like, “What is your favorite colour?” She answered red and purple. Wow, she liked the same colors that I liked. Soon after talking for a few minutes, we seemed to get along with each other. After a while she asked, “Where are you from?” I answered, “I am from earth.” She said, “We are from earth too. The only difference is that we live in the sky.” Wow. I never knew that.

Alice suddenly stopped and announced, “We are in the Queen scientist hall.” Soon I became really anxious and excited. When I saw the queen, I gasped. That queen looked like the barbie doll I just got from my friend yesterday! Emma and Alice bowed down to her. I guess I had to do the same too. After all, she was the Queen of this scientist land. I bowed down. She looked kind. She wore a dress which had a lab coat, lab glasses and lab desk design. She questioned Alice, “Whom have you brought here today? And why have you brought Emma with you?” Alice answered, “This is Mia, your highness. I just brought Emma with me so that Mia won’t be alone. I didn’t want her to feel alone.” The queen smiled.  She turned to me. She said, “Mia, where do you live?” I said, “I live in Lansing.” She said, “Lansing is a beautiful place. Here, sit down.” She flicked her wand in a complicated way. Suddenly, some chairs appeared for Alice, Emma and me to sit on. I sat on the chair beside Emma. She talked with Alice for a while and finally said, “You are going to visit scientist land every time you go off to sleep in the night. But you have to leave scientist land at 9 o’ clock every time you come here. I think it is time to go back to your home, Lansing. Also, we are going to give you this necklace which is the like the key to enter in and out of here.” I said thanks.

Soon she waved her wand and said, “Bye Mia. See you tomorrow!” Everybody waved goodbye to me. I waved back.

Suddenly I woke up. I looked around. I saw my bedroom. My drawer was filled with makeup. But something was different. There was a familiar necklace I could see. It was shining bright. I remembered my dream. I realized my dream must be true. I wore the locket and wondered, can I use the locket now to go to fairyland?  I have been trying since, but the fairies had forgotten to tell me the magic spell that I had to recite while wearing it. Would any of you reading this story have any clue?

    A really brave and novel attempt at attempting something new. This story feels like the stepping stone for greater story building resembling ‘The Adventures of Peter Pan’ and ‘Chronicles Of Narnia’. A very dreamlike imagery and life like descriptions make the tale more and more engaging. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if this story is fine tuned, detailed and then relaunched as a part of novel series someday. Keep up the good work!

    Wow, a dream world, a beautiful storyline and interesting narrative. I wish you find the spell soon and visit scientist fairyland more often so that we can get more of the stories of that land. Good attempt.
