Stand Back Everyone!

Here in In-Betwix those last few bittersweet days of August are coming to a close. The fairies and pixies are spending a lot of time pursuing the art of doing nothing but reading and lounging in the sun, appreciating the summer scents of flowers, freshly mowed grass while sipping on lemonade.

Flit just finished reading "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone". Since she's supposed to be a house fairy, she thought it was high time she learned to use magic and has been imagining herself as a wee Hermione Granger!

So off she went in search of the rest of the gang hoping to show off her wand and perhaps try out a spell or two she'd been working on.

"Stand back everybody, I'm going to try magic!"

"Uh oh!" exclaimed Weasley, "I'm so outta here!"

"Come on Weasley, you don't think she can really do magic do you?" argued Crumb.
"Well, I'm not taking any chances," yelled Nixie as she high tailed it into the house. "Remember the giant thistle?"

Murphy, not having a chance to escape, chose to grab onto the post in front of her just in case.

A deafening bang reverberated through the quiet summer air and a bright flash of light blinded everyone. When the noise had died off and Flit could see again, she looked around with astonishment at the havoc she'd managed to create. Of course, she quickly checked to make sure no one was hurt.

"Flit! Get me down from here!

"Whaaa...t happened?"

"Ugh. I'm so going to break that wand over her head!"

"I'm okay...really, just give me a moment. I don't think anything is broken."

"Oops! "

It's a good thing August is just about over. Butterlea residents will be starting to bring in the harvest next week in preparation for winter. I'm sure Murphy and Nixie are going to be finding lots of work to keep Flit busy. Once they get that wand away from her anyway!
