Here it is! Chappie number 20! So, who do you think the evil fairy is? Here's a hint: it's not someone that was in the series.
Let the quest for love continue!
Pinnochio and Daphne walked down the street, thinking. Pinnochio was thinking of the quest and how he was ever going to solve the riddle. Daphne was thinking about how silly this all was and how much she wanted to just go home and read her book. Darwin's theory was quite intriguing.
"Travel far yet very close…" Pinnochio thought aloud. "That obviously means we'll go to some other dimension. I think. He one who trampled the beautiful rose….I don't know of any fairies that stomp on roses in their spare time. Follow the path of her scorn? How does one follow the path of someone's anger? Daphne, do you have any ideas?"
"Not one," she said, crossing her arms.
Pinnochio stopped walking and turned to her. "Daphne, please".
"I don't see the point in any of this," she said grumpily.
"Come on Daphne," Pinnochio pleaded. "I'm trying to help you find something you lost".
"I didn't lose anything," she said. At least, she didn't think she did. She had that same nagging feeling, as if there was something missing, but what could it be? Daphne shook her head, warding off the feeling. She saw Pinnochio's pleading face, and sighed.
"All right," she said. "I'm not sure, but I think the rose the riddle's referring to isn't a flower, but a person who's named Rose".
"But who could that be?" Pinnochio asked. Then as realization spread on his face, he snapped his fingers. "Oh, of course! It must be talking about Briar Rose". His expression turned sad. "But she's dead".
"But who else could it be talking about?" Daphne asked. "It fits in with the rest of the riddle too. Cursed with pain from a rising thorn; that's when Prince Charming came and woke her. And the person who cursed Briar Rose—"
"Was Maleficent," Pinnochio said. "But she doesn't live in Ferryport, does she?"
"I don't think so," Daphne said. "But I know where we can find out".
So that's chapter 20. Sorry it's so short but I ran out of ideas. I can't figure out how exactly their going to get to Maleficent…but I'll try to update as soon as I can! Also I have to get ready for my birthday party! Yes, I'm turning 15 as of the 22nd. I'm so excited!
