Fantasy Story




Deep in the City of Chic, on the plant of Decorous, there was a school named Ennui High School. At this school there was a very interesting girl named Bliss. Bliss had long wavy golden brown hair. She had big blue eyes that were on flawless snowy skin. Her lips were full, and they were always the perfect shade of soft crimson even without lipstick.
Bliss just turned 17. She was doing well at school, but she really felt she was ready to get out of her old routine and see what else was out there.
One spring Friday morning, Bliss was sitting on the stoop of the apartment building were she lived with her parents. She was looking up at the pink and purple towering buildings around her. They are wonderful, but I’ve been gazing at these buildings for 17 years now, she thought. Just then a big silver cat walked by her. It stopped, turned around, and came up to her. It looked at her intensely for a moment then said, "You will do just fine,"
After Bliss nearly choked on her tongue, she said, "Do just fine for what?" She had never seen a talking cat before, and she was lost in astonishment.
The cat said, "I need some help finding an illusive treasure."
Bliss replied, "Oh, and where is this illusive treasure?"
The cat answered, "I’m not sure but I know where something is that will tell us where the treasure is. And this thing is about 3 blocks away."
Bliss thought about this, and decided three blocks isn’t far. Besides she didn’t really want this talking cat walking out of her life. She said, "OK, lets go. What’s your name?"
The silver cat said, "Jest. Follow me."
They walked and turned corners for about 15 minutes. Bliss had always thought she knew the part of Chic that she lived in really well. They were only walking for a little bit. How did we get to a place I don’t recognize at all, she thought. She was following Jest into a light pink building. They went up two flights of red stairs, and down a hall. The floors, walls, and ceiling of the hall were royal blue. They came to an emerald door. Jest told Bliss to open it.
As Bliss opened it, she was shocked at how white the room was. There was nothing in the room except a magenta wand with a light pink glittery top in the middle of the floor.
Jest said, "Pick the wand up and ask it where the treasure is." Bliss did so to humor the cat. Suddenly a spark of glittering light flashed.
A sweet, soft female voice said, "Go to Morale Park. Find the tree that is in the most southwest part of the park and tap on it twice. Go down the stairs, and turn right of the path. Turn left on the next path. Go to the fountain, and take a left. Go to the Castle. When you get there ask me what to do next."
And with that the voice was gone.
Bliss looked with bewilderment at Jest. He was calmly sitting on the white floor licking one of his front feet. Bliss said, "That voice was a true bolt out of the whiteness. What was that? Where did it come from?"
Jest answered, "Um, that was the voice of the magic wand. And it came from the wand."
Bliss said, "That helps a lot. Well I guess we should get going." They went out of the white room through the emerald door to the royal blue hallway. They stepped down the red stairs and out of the light pink building.
Jest said, "Do you know where Morale Park is?"
"Yes I do, but I don’t know where we are," answered Bliss.
"Do you know how to get there from Mulisha Square?" asked Jest.
"Yes I do," said Bliss. She followed Jest down the street. They did another series of turns until they were at Mulisha Square. Mulisha Square is a square block in the middle of Chic. It is made up of bright pink bricks. On two sides it is sunken with steps that are used as sitting places. From there she
