A/N: hey, I had this idea and had to get it written down before I forgot it. It's a fairy tale/Xanth crossover.

Lightening sighed. He was on his way to visit the Good Magician Humphrey, but had forgotten what his question was. Annoyed he sat down on a rock. To his surprise the rock yelled at him. "Get your behind of my face, you human."

Surprised, Lightening stood up. Turning around he looked at the rock. It looked perfectly normal. Then it hit him, his grandfather must be around. He looked down the path he had been following. Sure enough, there was Dor and Irene, riding on a magic carpet. They smiled and waved. He waved back.

As the carpet drew nearer, Lightening heard Dor call out to him. "What are you doing here?"

Lightening replied, "I was on my way to Humphrey's castle, but I can't remember what my question was!"

The carpet came to a halt right in front of Lightening, Dor and Irene level to his eye. Irene laughed.

"It's not funny!" Lightening retorted. She shook her head.

"I'm not laughing at you. It just the reason you can't remember is because you are by a Forget-ree." Irene had a talent of growing plants, and knew many species of trees and such. "It is one I planted by accident, before I was able to separate the seeds the Simburgh gave me." She smiled remembering. Lightening nodded and stepped away from the tree.

"Oh, now I remember!" he grinned sheepishly. "So where are you going?" he asked his grandparents.

"We have a meeting with Humphrey, on when we should crown Ivy the King of Xanth. Dor is about ready to retire." Dor nodded at Irene's words.

"Do you think you could give me a ride?" Lightening asked hopefully. Dor turned to Irene, who was after all a woman. Women always make the decisions.

"Well, I suppose our old carpet can fit one more." Irene decided.

"Hop on!" Dor held out his hand to help Lightening up. Lightening gladly took the assistance. Then they were up and on their way to the Magician's castle.

A/N: sorry it kind of short, but it's just a beginning and im not quite sure where I want to go with this. Ideas welcome, and if you flame, don't flame too much and explain why! Thanks!
