I don't own Peter Pan if I did this would have happened…
Chapter 2: The Second Star to the Right
I knew I would have to wait until the children were asleep to get my shadow I but I didn't know it took so long for people to go to sleep. Quickly I fly down from the top of the roof and have a look I saw a smart look black haired boy, a small boy who looks very young and an angel. No, not an angel just a very pretty girl with curly dirty blonde hair in a ponytail with a blue bow and blueberry eyes.
A strange feeling was in my stomach when I thought that so I quickly flew up trying to know what it was. When I was lost in thought Tink started pulling at my messy red hair signalling I should start listening.
I could only hear muffled sounds but I could make out a few words.
Wow, something bad must be happening. Then the window went dark and outside I could hear the grown ups talking.
"But George do you think the children will be safe, without Nana?"
"Safe? Of course, they'll be safe. Why not?"
"Well, Wendy said something about a shadow, and I…" At that part I perk up and start listening more.
"Shadow? Whose shadow?"
"Oh, Peter Pa- Peter Pan! You don't say. High voice Goodness gracious, whatever shall we do"?
"But George, really I-"
"Sound the alarm! Call Scotland Yard"
"There must have been someone-'
"Oh Mary, of all the impossible childish fiddle-faddle, Peter Pan, indeed. How can we expect the children grow up and be practical…'
"When you're as bad as they are? No wonder Wendy gets these idiotic ideas." The man said walking away.
Tink and me enter the nursery quietly. And start looking for my shadow.
"Over there Tink, in its den. Is it there? Must be here somewhere." I say music starts playing. "Tink! Stop playing and help me find my shadow. Shadow? Shadow?"
"Peter, I know the music box, I've been here before. There was a really nice girl…Hey!, Look!" I go over to the drawer.
"Huh?" I open the drawer and my shadow escapes. "Aha!"
We fly, climb, roll, tumble and hide until my shadow goes under the pretty girl's bed and past a dresser as I catch him and bump into it. Suddenly, I hear a gasp. It was the girl.
"Peter Pan! Oh, Peter, I knew you'd come back! I saved your shadow for you. Oh I do hope it isn't rumpled. You know, you look exactly the way I thought you would. Oh, a litter taller perhaps. But then…" I start rubbing my foot with something that feels sticky like tree sap, she giggles watching me.
"You can't stick it on with soap, Peter. It needs sewing. That's the proper way to do it. Although, come to think of it, I've never thought about it before. Sewing shadows, I mean. Of course, I knew it was your shadow the minute I saw it. And I said to myself, "I'll put it away for him until he comes back. He's sure to come back". And you did, didn't you, Peter? After all, one can't leave his shadow lying about… and not miss it sooner or later, don't you agree? But what I still don't understand is how Nana got it in the first place. She really isn't… Oh, sit down. It " As she talks I study her and realize that her ears are a bit pointed just like mine.
"Girls talk too much."
"Yes, girls talk too- Hmmm? Oh." She laughs until she realizes what I just said.
"Well, get on with it, girl."
"My name is Wendy, Wendy Moira Angela Darling." Wow, long name.
"Oh. But how did Nana get your shadow, Peter?"
"Jumped at me, the other night at the window."
"What were you doing there?"
"I came to listen to the stories."
"My stories? But they're all about you."
"Of course. That's why I like 'em. I tell 'em to the Lost Boys."
"The Lost B- Oh I remember. They're your men."
"Uh-huh." I say trying out my shadow.
"I'm so glad you came back tonight. I might never have seen you."
"Because I have to grow up tomorrow."
"Grow up?" I jump shocked.
"Tonight's my last night in the nursery."
'But that means no more stories."
"Mm-Hmm" She sniffed. No, no more stories that's horrible. I know!
"No! I won't have it! Come on."
"But where are we going?"
"To Never Land."
Amazed she says, "Never Land!"
"You'll never grow up there."
"Oh, Peter, it would be so wonderful. But wait! What would mother say?"
That I stop at. "Mother? What's a mother?"
"Why, Peter, a mother's someone…who loves and cares for you and tells you stories-
"Good! You can be our mother. Come on." I say dragging her to the window.
"Now, just a minute, I…, let me see now, I have to pack. Oh, and I must leave a note when I'll be back. Of course, I couldn't stay too long. And then I have to- Oh Never Land. Oh, I-I'm so happy, I'I think I'll give you a-a kiss." What's a kiss?
"What's a-a kiss?" I voiced my thoughts.
"Oh, well, I-I'll show you." She gently comes forward and softly presses her lips on mine. It was a strange feeling but I decided I liked it. Until she screamed in pain when Tink pulled her beautiful Blonde hair.
"Stop! Stop it, Tink!" I say jumping on beds to catch her with my hat for ruining that.
"John! John, wake up! He's here!" I hear as the small boy gets out of his cot.
"Huh? Jiminy!" The other says in wonder.
"Oh, what in the world was that?" Wendy asks.
"Tinker Bell. Don't know what got into her." I look into my hat.
"Hello, Peter Pan, I'm Michael." The small one says.
"My name is John. How do you do?"
"Hello!" I reply.
"Oh look! A firefly." Michael looks into the hat.
"A fairy?" Wendy says in wonder.
"What's the pixie doing?" Michael asks me.
"What did she say?" Wendy asks.
"She says you're a big, ugly girl." I laugh.
"Oh. Well, I think she's beautiful." At this Tink's glow went a light pink.
"Well, come on, Wendy. Let's go." I drag her again.
"Where are we going?" Michael asks Wendy.
"To Never Land."
"Peter's taking us."
"Us?" I fly over shocked.
"Of course, I-I couldn't go without Michael and John."
"Oh, I should like very much to cross swords with some real buccaneers."
"Yes and fight pirates too"
"All right, but you gotta take orders."
"Aye, aye, sir."
"But Peter, how do we get to Never Land?"
"Fly, of course"
"It's easy, all you have to do is to, is to... it's to... Huh! That's funny," I thought about it for a while.
"What's the matter, don't you know?"
"Oh sure, it's, it's just that I never thought about it before. Say, that's it! Think of a wonderful thought"
"Any happy little thought?"
"Like toys at Christmas?" Wendy asks in excitement, which I found I like =d and wanted to make her more excited about things.
"Sleigh bells? Snow?"
"Yup. Watch me now. Here I go! It's easier than pie" I demonstrate.
"He can fly!"
"He can fly!"
"Now, you try" I pulled Wendy up.
I"'ll think of a mermaid lagoon... underneath a magic moon"
"I'll think I'm in a pirate's cave"
"I think I'll be an Injun brave"
"Now, everybody try"
"One, two, three" I pull them up and….
"We can fly!, we can fly!, we can fly!" They crash.
"This won't do. What's the matter with you? All it takes is faith and trust, oh! and something I forgot: dust"
"Yup, just a little bit of pixie dust. Now, think of the happiest things, it's the same as having wings" I shake Tink's pixie dust onto John and Michael, then put three handfuls onto my hands and blow it onto Wendy.
"Let's all try it just once more"
"Look! We're rising off the floor"
"Oh, my! We can fly!"
"You can fly!"
"We can fly!"
"Come on everybody, here we go! Off to Never Land!" I say from the window.
Halfway through our trip we stop at Big Ben I land on a hand pulling Wendy down I then say, "There it is Wendy, second star to the right and straight on till morning" as I point to the star.
When we go through the portal I run my hand through the stars and get Wendy to watching her face change into one of amazement. Eventually, dawn breaks and we go across the sea seeing Neverland in the morning when the sun is going up is beautiful.
We land on the clouds looking at the island. "Oh, Peter, it's just as I've always dreamed it would be!" Wendy sighs happily. "Oh, look, John, there's Mermaid Lagoon."
"By Jove! And the Indian encampment!"
"Oh look, there's Captain Hook and the pirates." Just as Michael says that a cannon fires ad just misses us.
"Look out! Quick, Tink! Take Wendy and the boys to the island. I'll stay here and draw Hook's fire. I whistle, "Hook!" Hook, you codfish! Here!" I shout and start teasing Hook.
"Tinker Bell! Not so fast, Tinker Bell! Please Tinker Bell! We can't keep up with you! Tinker Bell! Wait! Please!" I shout to Tinkerbell while trying to go as fast as she was.
After I fully lost her I flew around trying to find her when suddenly a combination of rocks and arrows hit me that's when an arrow hit my heart and a stone was thrown at my head. I started falling trying to think of happy thoughts but I couldn't black spots clouded my eyes and I fell to a clear spot of land with rocks and grass.
