A reminder: Breeze is a very friendly Ogre. Hamish is a grumpy Elf. Lovisma is a tiny mischievous witch and Tulip is a Fairy who adores to bake.
Women’s voices drifted up to Breeze as he lay dreaming on a branch in a tree.
“Humans” he whispered. Breeze let out an ear piercing warning whistle. He spotted rabbits and elves running further into the wood.
“Did you hear that funny bird? ” One woman asked. “Don’t go into the wood. We don’t want the children to get lost in there.”
Breeze noticed the women’s baskets were full of shiny objects which they were hiding in the long grass and under bushes. Finally their baskets were empty and they left.
Breeze slid down the tree. Hamish walked up to him. “Why did you sound the alarm?”
“It was a crowd of humans. They hid somethings,” Breeze was stretching his hand out underneath a bush. “Aha, look what I got!” He pulled out a shiny blue ball.
“What is it?” Hamish asked.
Breeze scratched his head. “I don’t know.”
Hamish smelt it. “Chocolate. Why hide them?”
They asked Tulip. “I don’t know.” She said, “but the tooth fairy might know.”
Mavis, the tooth fairy was tired, “Show me quickly, I need to sleep. “
Hamish handed her the blue ball.
“Ugh it’s an easter egg. They love them, hide them in odd places and call it ‘fun’ to find them.” Mavis scowled then said, “I’m going to sleep, leave.”
The three friends left in a hurry.
“Now we know what they are what are we going to do?” Breeze asked.
“Nothing,” Tulip said, “They will come and collect them.”
Lovisma, heard this conversation and went to look at the eggs.
On Easter Sunday Tulip, Breeze and Hamish were hiding at the top of a tree. They were there to make sure no child entered the wood. “It wouldn’t do for an elderly Ogre or Fairy to meet a child.They might never recover from the shock,” Breeze said.
The children raced into the field watched by their parents. They began to search for eggs. A small girl gave a shout, “I see one.” This was followed by a wailing cry. “Why won’t it stop moving?”
Breeze , Hamish and Tulip watched the field turn into a playground for leaping Easter eggs that could not be caught.
Tulip looked at Breeze and Hamish.
“We didn’t do it.” Breeze said. “Did you?”
“I did not.” Tulip said and waved her wand towards the leaping bouncing eggs. But no amount of Fairy sparkle or magic could stop the eggs from moving.
Suddenly an egg was caught.
It popped open, a bright yellow rabbit jumped out and began hip hop dancing. His ears were spinning around and hit a boy in the legs. He began to cry.
“Lovisma did this. Listen, I can hear her giggling.” Hamish said.
They began to search. Suddenly a bush sneezed. Breeze pounced on it. He emerged with a wiggling fighting Lovisma.
“Leave me be you big ogre.”
“I will if you stop them bouncing eggs and dancing bunnies.” Breeze shook her.
Lovisma was dressed in green, she had bells in her hair. She jingled as he shook her.
“Lovisma you had better place a forgetful spell on them. We don’t want the wood full of nosy humans.” Tulip said.
“What will you give me if I do that?”Lovisma smiled.
Breeze said, “I’ll stop shaking you for a start, and I’ll tell you where to find lovely fresh mud.”
Lovisma loved bathing in mud. “Deal.”
With a flick of her wrist she stopped the eggs from moving and with a wiggle of her nose the children stopped crying.
Hamish’s ears twitched. “No one is talking about the jumping eggs, they are leaving.”
“Pity,” Lovisma said. “I always wanted to create a big stir. Now I will have to think of something else.”
Before they could scold her, Lovisma vanished.
Have a great Easter everyone.
