Lovisma was planning a big surprise for Halloween night.
Last year Breeze spoiled her surprise, this year she was being very careful.
“He won’t ruin my Halloween night.” She muttered. She sat on a fat mushroom watching her spoon do laps of the pot. “Hmm vanilla toffee apples who can resist them?” She giggled. On hearing a twig snap she looked up, then relaxed as one of the Muppet Bunnies dashed past her.
“Nothing will spoil this surprise. That stupid Ogre is helping Elegant and the Fairies make bobbing marshmallows.” She said.
Breeze was standing a short distance away disguised as a giant pumpkin. He got the idea from Bob (click here to see him as a pumpkin.) Hamish had helped Breeze get ready. Everyone knew Lovisma hates pumpkins.
While the children were dressing up as witches and ghosts, Lovisma placed buckets of her special toffee apples around the party tables. Her apples sparkled and glowed. “What child or ogre could resist these?” she muttered.
Meanwhile Breeze was holding a meeting with the other adults. “I am not sure what will happen when you take a bite so I took one from her basket.” He stared around at the Fairies and Elves.
Tulip said, “Well we won’t know until you take a bite from it.”
Breeze didn’t want everyone to think he was afraid. He closed his eyes and took a bite. It did taste lovely but the toffee ran off the apple like a river and lay around his feet. He could not move his feet. “I am stuck.” He groaned.
Elegant said, “I bet she plans on taking all of the children’s treats while they are stuck to the ground. I am sure it will wear off soon Breeze.”
Breeze hoped it would because he didn’t want to miss the party. The fairies and elves worked on a spell to undo Lovisma’s spell. Then they created a spell for her.
The party was great. The children loved the bobbing marshmallows that looked like giant spiders. They laughed when Matt tried to eat a real spider thinking it would taste of marshmallow. The spider was not happy as he scuttled awayinto the dark night.
The children noticed the toffee apples. Lovisma held her breath and waited.
Matt grabbed an apple. It fizzled and sparkled sending shooting stars into the night.
Lisbeth, Lillian and Daisy-Lyah’s apples played a musical tune the minute they held them. Children were dancing and laughing. Lovisma was angry.
“Give me one!” She grabbed an apple and instantly the ground beneath her feet began to shake. Everyone ran for cover as two tall scarecrows appeared carrying pumpkins. They placed the pumpkins on the ground and rolled them at Lovisma.
She was knocked off her feet and landed on a huge pumkin. Her feet and arms, and head were visible. Lovisma screamed.”I’m Trapped, stuck, help. I’m not a pumpkin.I don’t even like pumpkins.
” She waddled off into the wood crying, “I bet you did this Breeze. I will get out and then you had better watch out.”
Lisbeth was sitting beside Breeze shivering. “You don’t look worried Mr. Breeze.”
He smiled and said, “I am not, because Elegant added her forgetful potion to the spell so Lovisma will escape from the pumpkin but she will have forgotten everything and we will have a great party.”
Daisy-lyah and Lillian were kind Fairies and they filled a basket full of treats for the naughty witch.
