First things first, I do not own The Sisters Grimm! I wish I did :(
"PUCK!!!" Sabrina Grimm yelled as she chased Puck (King of Faerie). Puck had recently played a terrible prank on Sabrina. He had sent a phony E-Mail to Sabrina saying that it was Pajama Day at their school. Unfortunately, it was a saturday and there was no Pajama Day. Sabrina was HUMILIATED! Since then, Sabrina had been chasing the fairy for hours. Finally, Granny Relda took action.
"Puck!" Granny said. Puck stopped and turn around and stopped. Sabrina ran into him, and they both fell hard on the ground.
"Puck, apologize to Sabrina," Granny said.
"I'm sorry," he said.
"Sorry for what?" Granny huffed. Puck rolled his eyes.
"I'm sorry you were ever born," Puck said to Sabrina. Sabrina punched him.
"This is going to take awhile," Granny sighed. For the next hour and a half, Granny told the two that they had to be a little bit nicer to each other, or some changes would be done that they wouldn't like.
"What kind of changes?" Sabrina asked her grandmother.
"Yeah, what kind of changes?" Puck chimed in. Sabrina glared at him.
"Oh, I don't know," Granny said. Granny smiled, and then to children both knew what she was thinking.
"NO!!!" They yelled.
Granny rolled her eyes. "Then you won't bug each other anymore?"
"YES!" They said.
The next four days were so boring to Puck and Sabrina. They were actually "nice" to each other, until it all went down the drain. Puck had been studying Sabrina's every move. What was his motive? Well.... This being Puck, you won't ever really know. No one will. So all you can do is let him play his little games and hope (and wish) that his next victim isn't you. Sabrina, on the other hand, was unlucky enough to be the target of Puck's next "brilliant" plan (or prank, which ever you prefer). Super glue, Granny Relda's cookbook, salt (VERY salty salt), baking, wax, silver spray paint (non-toxic), and thumbtacks. When Granny Relda announced that "dinner" was ready, the plan took affect. Sabrina sat down, then she yelped and shot up like a rocket out of her seat (but she only went two inches in the air).
"What is it, Leibing?" Granny asked her granddaughter.
"There's something sharp in the seat!" Sabrina explained. Puck snickered, but no one payed attention to it. Granny walked over to Sabrina's seat and brushed her hand on top of the cushion cover. She found something sharp. Relda removed the cushion cover and pulled out a thumbtack.
"Well, I think this mystery is solved," Granny said, turning her head towards Puck, who was trying very hard not to laugh.
"You!" Sabrina said. She pointed at Puck.
"Me?" Puck acted. "What did I do?"
"You put a thumbtack on my seat!" Sabrina yelled.
"Sabrina," Puck started. "How could have I put a thumbtack on your seat? How would I have known what seat you were going to sit on? I mean, come on Sabrina." Puck had a point, but Sabrina wasn't about to give in. But before Sabrina could say anything, Veronica spoke up.
"Come on," she said. "Let's just all sit down and have a nice dinner with out any fighting, okay?" Every nodded, except Sabrina, who just grunted. Granny went into the kitchen and brought out a big pot of frog leg and salamander tail soup. She took a big wooden spoon and started spooning out the swamp colored slurry. Sabrina took a napkin that was near her plate and rested it on her lap. She looked at her dinner and almost vomited. She decided to gulp down the slop and not have to taste it. She picked up her spoon and was about to dip it in the slurry, when it melted. Puck chuckled.
"What the fudge?" Sabrina said.
"Oh dear," Granny sighed. Granny got up and got Sabrina a (real, and not wax) spoon. Sabrina carelessly snatched it from Granny's hands without saying "thank you". She was too mad at Puck to even think about politeness and manners. Sabrina grabbed her water, and took a big gulp. She spit it out almost instantly.
"What's wrong?" Daphne asked. Daphne was already having seconds.
"Some idiot put salt in my water!" Sabrina shouted.
"Sabrina, calm down." Veronica said. Sabrina's eye was twitching the same way cartoon's do when they are really annoyed. Sabrina took a deep breath, and tried again. Fortunately, there were no more thumbtacks, salt water or wax spoons, but there was on more thing. Sabrina picked up the napkin on her lap, and was about to wipe off her face, but then she found out it was super glued to her hand. She groaned. It took twenty-five minutes to remove the napkin from her hand, but unfortunately, it still didn't come off. Finally, Granny had an idea. She ran up to The Mirror (now referred to as The Mirror, in stead of Mirror), and came back with a tube.
"Magic Non-Stick Super Glue?" Daphne read out loud.
"But it is already superglued!" Sabrina explained. There was a sparkle in Granny's eyes. She removed the cap and squeezed the sticky pink paste on the napkin. The pink paste multiplied and mutated until it covered Sabrina's hand, and made a cast looking cocoon. The pink paste sparked and wriggled, as if it were wondering how to unglue the napkin from Sabrina's hand. The cast-cocoon hardened and broke off in to pieces. Sabrina squealed. Her hand was free! She felt the same way Daphne does when meeting a new famous Everafter. In fact, Sabrina almost bit the palm of her hand. Puck rolled his eyes. The Brake Free Of The SuperGlue Trap was not part of his plan. He realized that Granny would get mad at any minute and ground him... again. He started walking up to his room when Granny grabbed his shoulder.
"And where do you think you're going?" Granny asked.
"Ummmm....." Puck said.
"I thought you said you weren't going to prank Sabrina anymore," Granny explained.
"Well....." Puck said.
"You lied," Granny sighed. She looked very disappointed.
"I've told you before, you can't believe a word he says! He always lies!" Sabrina shouted.
"That is not true!" Puck protested.
"Yes it is!" Sabrina replied. "Ever since we met, you have done nothing but lied, pranked and ate!"
"Again, NOT TRUE!" Puck yelled. "What about saving this family? If it weren't for me, you would all be pushing up daisies!"
"Oh yeah sure!" Sabrina yelled back. "Because you were so loyal! You never ever threatened to push us into the 'the jaws of death!'"
"YOU BET I HAVE!" Puck yelled.
"UGH!! I can't believe you! Granny took you into her house and you have done nothing but betray her!" Sabrina shouted. "You are an ungrateful little brat!"
"Me!?!? Your the brat!" Puck shouted.
"AGH!!!!!!!" Sabrina screamed. "I WISH THAT WE HAD NEVER EVEN MET!" Everyone was in shock, but Sabrina was in rage. She stormed up to her room and slammed the door.
"She didn't mean that, Puck." Daphne said.
"Yes she did." Puck said. It was true. Granny hugged Puck, but he pulled away. He slowly walked up the stairs to his own room, and quietly closed the door.
"I can't believe she would say such a thing," Granny said. She started clearing the dining room table.
"Serves him right!" Henry said.
"Henry Grimm!" Granny gasped. She was so surprised by her son's remark that she almost dropped a stack of plates she was holding.
"Mom, you know better than anyone in this house that he is trouble!" Henry explained.
"Henry, I know that he has his flaws, but he is family." Granny said.
"No he isn't! He is just here because... because... Well, I don't know why... But my point is clear!" Henry said.
"Henry...-" Granny said.
"Mom, if you won't get rid of him, I will!" Henry interrupted.
"No!" Daphne cried. "Don't!"
"What! Are you saying that you actually want that... that... Whatever he is, to live in this house?" Henry said surprised.
"He's not that bad, if you get to know him," Daphne said matter-of-fact. Henry grunted.
"Are you hearing this?" Henry asked Veronica. "Our little girl is actually on his side!". Veronica smiled, she knew that Daphne that had a secret crush on Puck.
"Yes, I am. And I don't see anything wrong with it" Veronica said. "Yes, it is true that he sometimes can be a pain, but he is family". Daphne smiled and blushed at the same time. Henry was speechless.
They all heard a cry from outside. Jake ran out of the house with Elvis behind them. A couple minutes later, Jake and Elvis returned with a young Witchling named Erin.
"Hi everybody," Erin said. There was pure embarrassment on her face.
"Erin! What were you doing?" Granny asked the bug eyed girl.
"Well..." Erin said. "I was looking on my map for good spots to find amanitas, and it said that outside your house was an excellent place to find them. So I walked here and started picking them. Then I realized that the spell that I needed the amanitas for also asked for crow eggs, and I recalled seeing some on top of your guys's roof. So I climbed up and got the eggs. Then I decided that I should just cast the spell here in stead of walking all the way back home. But I think it went wrong, because next thing I knew, I was on the ground". Erin's black cat Blue (short for Blue Moon) meowed and purred as her owner explained what had happened.
"Well, sounds like you've had an exciting evening," Veronica said.
"Oh, I really have. Well, I guess I should be off. See you later!" Erin said. Erin waved goodbye to everyone and started walking away. Granny closed the door and looked at Henry.
"She's means well," Granny explained. Henry grunted.
"I don't know about you guys, but I think it's an early bedtime for me." Veronica said.
"I think so as well," Granny said. Everyone went to bed. Sabrina, who was still mad, slept like a rock. Which was good, because otherwise she would know that the spell Erin had cast was taking affect. The whole world was being mixed, smushed and stretched. If anyone was awake during this transformation and change, they would have probably been sick from the feeling. Oh the feeling! It was like being on a boat that rocked back and forth, an not only the boat rocking back and forth, but it felt as if you were already seasick. Everyone in the world was asleep, even the people on the other side of the world. It was just another affect of the spell. But why would Erin cast a spell that would stretch and smush? Well, she didn't mean to. She was trying out a Transportation spell, but it had gone wrong... Or had it? Was it that the spell had gone wrong or that Erin had accidently cast the wrong spell that called for the same ingredients? Well, anyway. The world had finished its transformation and it started off were it had left time. Sabrina woke up the next morning by someone shaking her roughly and saying in a unnervingly familiar voice "Wake up! Wake up!". Sabrina's eyes fluttered opened, and what she saw was enough to make her scream. She was looking right at grumpy Ms. Smirt! Sabrina jumped up and looked around. They were in a train... a train... a train? What were they doing in a train? Sabrina looked out the train window and saw hundreds of trees go by. Sabrina turned around and saw her little sister, Daphne fast a sleep. Sabrina quickly woke Daphne up.
"Whaddsss onnngg firrrr?" Daphne asked. Sabrina had no idea what she had just said.
"Daphne! Daphne! Wake up!" Sabrina said. Sabrina continued to shake the little girl.
"Alright, alright!" Daphne said. But when the little girl saw the boney figure of Ms. Minerva Smirt, she gasped.
"What the--...!" Daphne said. Ms. Smirt looked confused, tired and angry.
"What is all this blabber about?" Ms. Smirt demanded.
"It's just... it's just..." Sabrina stuttered. She couldn't think of anything to say. She was absolutely speechless. Sabrina looked over at Daphne, who's face was white.
"Um.. Ms. Smirt? Do you mind if me and Daphne go to the bathroom?" Sabrina asked.
"Make it quick, we're almost at Ferryport Landing." Ms. Smirt snarled. Sabrina grabbed Daphne's hand and they ran towards the trains bathroom.
"But I don't have to go!" Daphne protested. Sabrina opened the door and shoved Daphne and herself inside.
"What the fudge is going on!!" Sabrina yelled.
"How should I know?!" Daphne said.
"What are we doing on a train with Ms. Smirt?" Sabrina gasped. Sabrina started biting her nails, something she has never done.
"I don't know!"
"Where's Granny? Uncle Jake? Elvis? Mom? Dad? Red? Canis? Puck?"
"I don't know!" Daphne said. She put her hands to her face and started crying. Sabrina tried to be strong for her little sister, but instead, broke down crying herself. There was a knock on the bathroom door.
"Ma'am? Are you okay?" Someone said. Both sisters hearts started racing.
"Fi-fine. Just fine!" Sabrina said, trying to make herself sound older.
"Are you sure?" the person said again. "I heard crying." Sabrina and Daphne opened the door and found a woman in her middle twenties.
"Sorry. Just some family stuff," Daphne said, wiping her eyes. Sabrina nodded. The two girls headed back to their seats.
"What took so long?" Ms. Smirt asked. Her tone of voice sounded mad and annoyed.
"Ms. Smirt? Where are we going?" Daphne asked the case worker.
"For the millionth time! Ferryport Landing! So you can live with your grandmother!"
"Granny!" Both sisters cried.
"I would like to go over some rules before we get off." Ms. Smirt said. "Be nice to your Grandmother, she is an old woman and can't handle much trouble. So no sass, back talk or anything that might offended her and give you back! Be polite, don't slouch and for heavens sake, don't run away!" The girls looked at her blankly, then nodded. Ms. Smirt sighed and started reading a book that she had with her. Sabrina remembered the title very clearly; How To Get The Love You Want. Reading the title again made Sabrina cringe.
"Do you think Granny is having a bad a time as we are?" Daphne whispered to Sabrina.
"I don't know." Sabrina whispered back.
"Whispering is not polite girls." Ms. Smirt said. Sabrina and Daphne sighed. After a while, the train came to a stop and the conductor announced that Ferryport Landing was the last stop.
"Come on!" Ms. Smirt said rudely. Sabrina remembered that their suitcases in the storage rack. She grabbed them and followed Daphne and Ms. Smirt off the train. Both sisters spotted their grandmother standing alone.
"Granny!" They both cried. Sabrina dropped the two suitcases and they ran towards their grandmother. They wrapped their arms around the old woman.
"Oh, Leibings." Granny said happy and surprised. Daphne looked up and saw another familiar face. The face of their friend Mr. Canis (or Tobias Clay).
"Mr. Canis!" Daphne said. She let go of her grandmother and hugged the old man. He looked at Granny, who had the same expression he did. Confusion.
"Mrs. Grimm," Ms. Smirt said. "It is very nice to meet you."
"Have you told the girls about us much?" Granny asked jokingly.
"No-... I mean yes, yes I have." Ms. Smirt said.
"Don't listen to her! She hasn't told us a thing about you!" Sabrina explained. Granny cocked an eyebrow.
"I just want to go home, Granny." Daphne said, hugging the old woman again. Daphne started crying, so did Sabrina.
"Well, I guess I should get these girls home." Granny said. She hugged both sisters and gave them a kiss on the forehead. Tobias grabbed the girls bags and headed towards the family "car". Ms. Smirt seemed slightly confused and happy to get rid of the "Trouble Makers".
"Well, goodbye girls, I hope to never see you again.." Ms. Smirt said. Granny gave a curious look, but said nothing. Ms. Smirt got back on the train and the Grimms headed towards their only source transportation.
"Granny?" Sabrina asked.
"Yes, darling?" Granny said.
"Have you noticed that... The day didn't seem quiet right?" Sabrina asked.
"Yes, Leibing." Granny said. "I woke up this morning thinking 'This can't be right. Where are my girls?'"
"That's not exactly what I meant" Sabrina said sadly.
"Can we have spaghetti for dinner?" Daphne asked. Granny smiled and nodded. They reached the car, and to Sabrina's amazement, Elvis was in it.
"Elvis!" The sisters said. They quickly opened the door and hugged the dog.
"I suppose your Dad told you about us, huh?" Granny said. She seemed relieved. Sabrina choked, "Uh oh" she thought.
"No, Dad didn't." Daphne said. Sabrina could tell she had a plan.
"Indeed?" Granny asked. "Then how do you know Mr. Canis? Or Elvis?"
"Mom told us a little." Daphne lied. "Dad said you died when Sabrina was born, but Mom told us quiet a bit about you"
"How much?" Granny asked.
"Not much. Just, you know, the basic family stuff. Age, pets, names, birthdays" Sabrina played along. She winked at Daphne.
"Ah." Granny said. "Well, hop in!" The two sisters got in the car. Usually Sabrina wasn't too happy to ride in the "car", but it was still family to her.
"What is the matter with your suitcases?" Mr. Canis asked. "They hardly weigh anything."
"We don't have much clothes. Just some socks, underwear, pants and one shirt." Sabrina said.
"Oh dear! Did you have that many clothes when you lived in New York?" Granny gasped.
"No, we had more. But when the police started the investigation, they took most of our clothes, stuff and our goldfish Lucy" Daphne explained.
"What would they do with that?" Granny asked. Both sisters shrugged. Granny continued to tell the girls stuff they already knew, like how the mayor was a nice man, but sometimes a bit of a jerk, or how the police force was only four men.
"Dollhouse!" Daphne cried as she watched the little Grimm house come into focus.
"We're home!" Sabrina said. "Not quite" Daphne thought. Sabrina opened the car door and Elvis jumped out, Sabrina and Daphne followed. Granny walked towards the and took out her huge key ring.
"Thats a lot of keys!" Sabrina said. "Why do you need them all?" Sabrina had decided to try to make it sound like she had no idea what this all meant, she guessed Daphne was doing the same thing.
"Oh, you'll find out soon enough." Granny said, she turned around and winked at Mr. Canis/Tobias Clay.
"Hmmm!! I can already smell home!" Daphne laughed. Granny smiled. Once she had finished unlocking the visible locks, she knocked on the door three times and said "We're home!" The last invisible lock slid and the door opened without a sound. They all tumbled into the house. Mr. Canis closed the door. Again, no sound.
"Books!" Daphne said.
"Books indeed." Granny laughed. "Well girls, make yourself at home!" Sabrina flopped onto the big cushy chair in the corner of the living room. Daphne lay on top of Elvis, who was laying on the floor.
"Does anyone want a grand tour?" Granny asked. Both girls were exhausted, but they said yes. Granny showed them everything they had seen before, but it was still exciting for them. After the tour, the girls were even more tired.
"Can we watch some T.V. before dinner?" Sabrina asked.
"Of course, Leibling!" Granny said. "Here, let me help you clear it off." Granny took two big hands full of books, and put them on a end table that already had its fair share of books on it.
"There!" Granny said. Sabrina and Daphne sat on the couch. Granny went into the kitchen to make dinner. Sabrina picked up the T.V. remote and pushed the "On" button.
"Sabrina..." Daphne said.
"Hm?" Sabrina said.
"You said that you wished you had never met Puck..." Daphne explained. Sabrina cringed.
"Yeah, I know." Sabrina said.
"Well, after you stormed up to your room, Erin fell off the roof and--..."
"Whoa, whoa, whoa... Hold on, what was Erin doing on the roof?" Sabrina asked.
"I was just about to get to that. Anyway, she fell off the roof. But, of course, we didn't know it was her. So Jake went out to see what happened, and he came back with Erin. She said that she was on the roof because she was doing a spell... I'll back up... She said she was doing a spell that called for amanitas. She said she was looking on her map... Oh! I'll just get to the point. She said that the spell must have not worked because she fell off the roof... She was on the roof because she was getting crows eggs. The spell also called for crows eggs and---..."
"Just get to the point!" Sabrina said.
"Okay! So she said that it must have not worked because she fell off the roof."
"So! She said that is must have not worked! And it happened about just after you said that you'd wished that you had never even met Puck!"
"I don't get it.."
"UGH!! You said 'I wish that we have never even met!', so what of Erin cast the wrong spell and your wish came true?"
"Don't be so ridiculous!" Sabrina said. She could feel her anger rising. Half an hour passed, Daphne and Sabrina hadn't said a word to each other since Daphne explained what had happened.
"Dinner is ready!" Granny said. Sabrina turned off the T.V. and walked into the dining room. Canis was already there. Daphne sat on a chair that had large book entitled; Architecture For Pigs. Sabrina sat beside her. Granny came in with a big pot, three plates, and a big bowl of salad.
"Do you need some help?" Sabrina asked.
"I'm okay, Leibing," Granny replied. She put the plates and pot down, and gave Mr. Canis his dinner. Granny scooped some spaghetti into Daphne's plate, then Sabrina's. Sabrina remembered what she thought of her grandmothers cooking when the first met, but Sabrina was too tired and hungry to make a remark about her odd cooking.
"Does anyone want garlic bread?" Granny asked the two girls.
"Igfff gerooo!" Daphne said. Her mouth was full of spaghetti.
"Pardon?" Granny asked.
"She said 'I do!'," Sabrina explained.
"Ah. I thought it was Daphne-Ish for a second there." Granny said. She put a piece of (normal looking) garlic bread on each girls plate, then on her own.
"You know about Daphne-Ish!?" Daphne squealed. She inserted the palm of her hand into her mouth.
"Oh yes. Your Mama told me you like to make up your own language." Granny said.
"Sooooooooo cool!" Daphne cried happily.
I'd just like to sneak in a little note right here. As you probably know by now, the sisters have kinda gone back in time, and are re-living the part where the two sisters first meet their grandmother. Why was the reason for this? I just didn't want you, Dear Reader, to think that I was stealing Michael Buckley's idea, I am just making a Fanfic that includes book one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and nine.
"Um.. Do you mind if I just go to bed?" Sabrina asked her grandmother.
"Not at all, Leibling." Granny said. "But you hardly ate a thing! Are you feeling OK?"
"I'm fine, just exhausted." Sabrina said. Daphne took that as a signal to stop eating and talk to her sister.
"I'm done too... And I am very tired!" Daphne explained.
"Okay, well. Do you two have anything to wear to bed?" Granny asked.
"Yep, we've got some T-Shirts." Sabrina said.
"Okay, well you get ready. I'm just gonna clean up and then I'll tuck you two in." Granny said. Sabrina and Daphne walked up the stairs to there bedroom.
"Sabrina, I don't think you should be so nice to Granny," Daphne said.
"What!!? Why?" Sabrina asked in shock.
"Well, if we went into the past, then you have to be mean to Granny, 'cause you were when we first met her." Daphne sighed.
"But I can't be mean to her! I love Granny too much!" Sabrina said.
"I know. It breaks my heart to see one of us being mean to her, but then how are we going to get through this?" Daphne said. "Think about. We didn't get snatched up by the giant because you were too stubborn, and we saved Granny! If you weren't mean to Granny, and ran away from her and Tobias, we wouldn't have gotten bit by the pixies, and we wouldn't have met Puck." Daphne explained. She had a very good point.
"B-but I-I can't!" Sabrina stuttered.
"You have to!" Daphne said. Then, all of the sudden she started crying. "Why did you have to say that!?!"
"Say what?" Sabrina asked. She crouched down to Daphne and held her shoulder.
"What did you have to wish that we never met Puck?"
"I didn't mean to, I just got mad, that's all."
"No, you meant it!"
"Daphne? Have you ever heard of the expression 'The straw that broke the camels back'?"
"N-no," Daphne said.
"Well... You know how camels can hold a lot of weight? Well, its kinda like that. You see, the camel was carrying a lot of stuff, and that last single shred of straw that was put on his back made him collapse."
"I don't get it"
"Okay. There was this guy who had a camel named... Um... Charlie, and the owner guy, let say his name is... Fred... And Fred was putting a lot of stuff on Charlie's back, but Charlie didn't budge, but he was getting tired, and then Fred put that one last straw on Charlie's back and Charlie just collapsed. Because he was carrying so much stuff, he was getting very tired, then when Fred put the one last straw on Charlie's back, he just couldn't take it. Do you understand?"
"Okay. So that's what happened with me. There was just so much going on that day, so when we started fighting, I just.... collapsed, basically. I guess that's why I said that I wished we have never met Puck"
"I understand," Daphne said, wiping her nose on her shirt sleeve.
"Can I ask you something?" Sabrina asked.
"Yeah, what?" Daphne said.
"Why do you like Puck so much?"
"He's fun," Daphne said. She could feel her face becoming hot with embarrassment.
"Oh my gawd!"
"You have a thing for the Trickster King!" Sabrina squealed.
"I do not!" Daphne protested.
"Oh don't give me that! You had a crush on Peter Pan when you first watched the movie!"
"Yeah, but that was different! I don't like Puck!"
"Then why are you always defending him?"
"Because... Well, because...." Daphne said. "Okay... I do like Puck, and I don't want to!"
"Why?" Sabrina asked.
"Because..." Daphne sighed. "You two are always getting under each other skins."
"Yeah, I've noticed." Sabrina laughed.
"And I thought that... If you knew I liked him, you wouldn't want me to be your sister anymore."
"Daphne! That is ridiculous! I'd still want you to be my little sister if you were in love with.... Billy!" Sabrina. "You don't have a crush on him... Do you?"
"No! He belongs with Snow." Daphne explained.
"When did you start liking Puck?" Sabrina asked.
"Its a fairly new thing," Daphne told Sabrina.
"Really?" Sabrina said. Daphne nodded. "What did he do to make you go googley eyes?"
"I don't know... I think it was when he used 'jerk-azoid'," Daphne said.
"Awww!! My little sister has a crush!" Sabrina cooed.
"Puck and Daphne sittin in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G, first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Puck with the baby carriage!" Sabrina sang.
"Yeah, yeah, yeah." Daphne rolled her eyes.
"Although, you have to admit, your babies will be adorable!" Sabrina said. Daphne laughed.
"Daphne," Sabrina said. "You have to tell him." Daphne's face went completely white.
"W-what?" Daphne said.
"When we get back, tell him you love him." Sabrina smiled.
"I can't do that!" Daphne gasped. "I'd be way too embarrassed!"
"Then your just going to live your life staring and daydreaming? That's not the Daphne Grimm I used to know! The Daphne Grimm I knew would do anything!" Sabrina said. Daphne was about to say something when they heard the all to familiar flute. They turned to each other and smiled. They ran to the window and looked outside. Sure enough, little lights were gathering outside the window. Ten, then twenty, then thirty, then forty, and so on. It was like they were counting by tens. Without thinking about last time, Sabrina opened the window. Almost instantly, Mr. Canis came barging the the door. The two sisters yelped and spun around. Two or so pixies came through the window. Mr. Canis ran towards the little lights, caught them in his frail hands, and put them outside. He closed the window and locked it.
*"Girls, you'll leave that window closed if you know what's good for you!" he growled. The girls were so startled they didn't even think to be scared (if that makes any sense). Canis was about to leave the room, when he turned around and apologized.
"I am sorry that I got mad, but please, do not open any windows unless asked. Your grandmother and I are just trying to protect you from what is out there." The girls nodded. Mr. Canis quietly closed the door behind him when he left.
"Puck is out there!" Daphne whispered happily.
"I know!" Sabrina said in relief. "You know Daphne? For a second I was scared that I had wished away Puck, ha ha ha... But I was wrong!"
"I know! I thought the same thing! We won't be killed!" Daphne said.
"Wait, what do you mean by 'We won't be killed!' exactly?" Sabrina asked.
"Well, he has saved us quite a bit. So if you didn't wish him away, then we won't die!" Daphne explained. All of the sudden, Sabrina felt as if she were going to vomit. There was a gentle knock on the door, and Granny came in. Sabrina, who was told to be mean to the sweet old woman, was cold to her, as asked.
"Yeah?" Sabrina said.
"Mr. Canis said that you two opened a window, is this true?" Granny asked. The two sisters nodded. "Girls, I don't want to be the boring, strict granny, but there are some rules I would really like you to follow. First, never let anyone or anything into this house without asking Mr. Canis or me if its OK. Second, there is a room down the hall that is locked. It's locked for reason and I ask that you stay away from it for the time being. You might hear unusual noises coming from inside, but just ignore them. Do you understand?" Daphne nodded, but Sabrina seemed to be in a sort of.... Something. She just had a blank face. Then, Daphne understood. Sabrina was thinking about Mirror... He was in this house... He had the trust of Granny, Elvis and Mr. Canis, but he had actually betrayed them.... He had ordered Oz to kidnap their parents, and Mirror, the leader of the Scarlet Hand, was in this house. Breathing the same air. And the sisters knew that they did need his help if they wanted to get home.
"As for the rest of the house," Granny said. "Feel free to look around. There are lots of books to keep you from getting bored, and there is the T.V. and we can always go to the movie theatre if you want."
"Movie theatre?" The girls said. They didn't know Ferryport Landing had a movie theatre.
"You two haven't gotten into your PJ's yet?" Granny asked.
"Sabrina and I started talking, then I guess, we forgot." Daphne said. Sabrina couldn't help but smile thinking about Daphne's big secret. Sabrina didn't like Puck, in fact, she hated him, but she would support her sister. Sabrina opened the suitcases and then realized.... They had to wear the stupid monkey and balloon pants! Sabrina cringed.
"Granny?" Sabrina asked. "Can you wake us up early tomorrow so we can get some new clothes?"
"Of course, Leibling!" Granny said. She leaned forward and kissed them both on the forehead. Granny got up and left the room.
"Why did you ask her if she could get us up early?" Daphne asked.
"Uhh... Daphne... You don't remember the hideous outfits Mr. Canis got for us!?" Sabrina said. Daphne cringed, and Sabrina smiled. Daphne had finally gotten a sense of style.
"Aren't you going to get changed?" Daphne asked her sister.
"No," Sabrina said.
"Uh, why?" Daphne asked.
"Remember? We ran away." Sabrina said matter-of-fact.
"Yeah, but we got some sleep." Daphne said.
"Oh yeah... Well, try to fall asleep fast, 'cause we are going to 'run away'" Sabrina said.
"Night, Daphne," Sabrina said. About three hours later, Sabrina woke up and shook her sister awake, strangely enough, she woke up easily. They got ready and started walking out the door and down the stairs.
"Sabrina, wait!" Daphne whispered.
"What?" Sabrina asked.
"It's locked!" Daphne said.
"Oh yeah." Sabrina sighed. They turned around and headed towards Relda's room. They slowly and quietly opened the door and tip toed inside. Sabrina walked towards the big key ring on Granny Relda's nightstand, and Daphne was heading towards a tribal mask on the wall. Sabrina mouthed the word "What are you doing?" and Daphne mouthed "I need to drop it!" Sabrina nodded and carefully walked around to the other side of their Granny's bed. Daphne picked up the mask and dropped it on the floor. Daphne jumped down beside her sister, and Granny woke up.
"Oh! Its you! What are you doing on the floor?" Granny asked the mask. She gingerly picked it up and set it beside her bed. Then, she was snoring as loudly as she was when the two sisters had went into the room. Sabrina stood up and got the huge key ring. The two sisters exited the bedroom and made their way to the front door.
"Do you remember which keys are which?" Daphne asked her sister.
"No, but I did it last time," Sabrina said. She put key after key after key in the lock, and then finally, there was a click and the door opened. Sabrina put the keys on a stack of books near the door and the two sisters ran outside.
"Where are we going?" Daphne asked.
"Um... The woods! That's where we got attacked by the pixies!" Sabrina said.
Daphne cringed. "I don't want to get stung by pixies again!"
"I know! I don't either, but maybe we can find Puck without getting bitten!" Sabrina yelled. They ran towards the woods, then something or someone pulled on Sabrina's pant leg.
"Elvis!" they cried. The dog whined.
"Elvis, we don't want to run away, but we have to, otherwise... something might.... Sabrina?" Daphne asked.
"What?" Sabrina said.
"What are we doing exactly?" Daphne asked.
"Finding Puck!" Sabrina explained.
"Ohhh, right. Okay, so Elvis, we'll be right back, but you have to keep this a secret, OK?" Daphne said. The dog seemed to understand. The trio continued walking trough the woods, until there was a loud cracking sound.
"What was that?" Daphne asked. Daphne grabbed the big dog around his neck like a life support.
"I don't know." Sabrina admitted. There was another loud cracking, then a wave of dirt and grass went flying everywhere.
"The giant!" Daphne cried. But it wasn't the giant, it was something else. It was a tree, a tree with glowing yellow eyes and a mouth. There was another loud cracking, then another, and another. Until there where ten or so trees all standing up like people.
"This didn't happen!" Daphne yelled. Tears of fear were running down her cheeks. Sabrina could see a strange figure in the tree that transformed first, it was the figure of a person, with bright blue eyes.
"Attack!!" The lead tree yelled. The trees voice was long and raspy.
"Bill! You idiot!" Another tree said. "You have to ask the boss if its OK to attack!"
"Oh, yeah." Bill nervously laughed. His eyes turned to the direction of their so called "boss". "What do you say, boss?"
"Attack." Their boss said. Sabrina couldn't hear his or her voice very well, but it sounded calm about the whole situation.
"ATTACK!" Bill cried. The ten or so trees gathered around the two sisters and their dog. It made a big tree circle. Sabrina's heart was racing like mad. Then they heard Granny's sweet voice echo from the other side of the woods.
"Uh oh," Bill said. "Retreat!". Sabrina saw the Person Figure disappear into the darkness. The ten or so trees got back into their disguise of regular trees. Granny came running behind the sisters. Mr. Canis was behind her.
"Leiblings, on earth are you doing out here?" Granny cried. She grabbed the girls and hugged them. She seemed more concerned and worried than angry.
"We.. we... we..." Daphne said. She couldn't think of anything to say.
"Its OK now." Granny cooed. Sabrina was still in shock.
"That's not what happened." Sabrina thought aloud. Daphne gave Sabrina a look that said "I know!"
"You two should get to bed if you want to go shopping tomorrow. We'll talk about tonight's events in the morning," Granny said. She put her hand on Sabrina's shoulder. Sabrina spun around and said "That's not what happened." They walked back to the Grimm house. "That's not what happened!" Sabrina thought. "We got attacked by the pixies! We got attacked by Puck's pixies! Not trees! And who was their boss? Was it Puck? Why was it trees?" Questions like those kept going through Sabrina's head, and before she knew it, she was asleep.
The next morning
The next morning, Granny woke the sisters up at 8:30 A.M.
"Get up!" She sang. Sabrina grumbled and put a pillow on her head. Daphne on the other hand, was wide awake.
"Sabrina! Get up or we're going to have to wear monkeys and balloons!" Daphne said.
"I'm up!" Sabrina said. As soon as Daphne said that, Sabrina was awake. That morning they had flapjacks and marigold syrup, Sabrina's personal favorite (surprised? I am!).
"Sof wihaasz plfffns froh prtof?" Daphne asked with her mouth full. Granny looked and Sabrina for translation.
"She said 'So what's planned for today?'," Sabrina said with a sigh.
"Oh! Well, they shopping, and also a surprise." Granny said. She put another pancake on Daphne's plate. The little girl gobbled it up.
"What kind of surprise?" Daphne asked. She had finally swallowed her food.
"Oh, you'll see." Granny said with a wink. Both Sabrina and Daphne knew what that meant.
"Last night," Sabrina said. "We saw someone."
Granny cocked an eyebrow. "Oh?"
Daphne nodded. "Yeah, we did."
"Oh, that's just a neighbor. You'll meet h--..." Granny said.
"I hate to interrupt, but their is someone here to see you, Mrs. Grimm." Mr. Canis said.
"Oh, if you'll excuse me," Granny said getting up from her seat. Granny, Elvis and Mr. Canis exited the house.
"What do you think their doing?" Daphne asked.
"I don't know, but we're going to find out. C'mon!" Sabrina said. Both sisters got up and walked towards the living room window. The curtains were closed, but you could see the shadows of two adults, one child and one Great Dane. Sabrina put her ear to the glass to hear the conversation.
"You can't go around scaring people like that!" they heard Granny say. They could see the figure of a child. The child has his or her arms crossed, is if her or she were pouting.
"B---" The child said. Again, they couldn't hear his or hers voice.
"No buts! You'll get to meet them soon enough." Granny said. The sisters could hear the doorknob jiggle, and they dashed into the kitchen.
"Who was that?" Daphne asked.
Sabrina caught her breath. "I have no idea! Did that happen last time?"
"No! No, it didn't!" Daphne said.
"Well, we're not far form the part where we almost get drowned. In fact, I think it happens today," Sabrina said matter-of-fact.
