Chapter 1 (continued)

"I'm Jiffy, the fastest of the Bluerels," he said. "I'm afraid you're mistaken though. This is my room. Who are you?"
"I'm Sophia Mizrahi," she said, "and this is definitely my --" She broke off as she saw her roof slowly fade away. Her eyes widened in disbelief. Her whole room changed into a tiny, blue cottage. It was just big enough for her to sit in. "How did I get here?" she asked, looking around in wonder.
"I haven't any idea. I got out of bed a little while ago, and here you were," Jiffy said.
"I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to break in," Sophia said.
"That's pretty obvious. The problem is getting you out," he said.
"There's only one way," she said. "I'll help you to rebuild your house afterwards."
"Okay...." Jiffy said reluctantly.

Sophia shifted her weight onto her feet. She prepared herself, and then stood up suddenyl. Splinters flew everywhere. Jiffy's houde was destroyed. Sophia looked around. She rubbed her eyes. Every single thing was a shade of blue. The cottage was in a dense forest. They were surrounded by tall pine trees. The ground was sky-blue, and the trees were navy.

"Why's everything blue?" she asked.
"You do ask silly questions, miss. This is Sora, everything except the ksy and the sia is blue. That's just the way things are," Jiffy said. "Where are you from?"
Sora, Sophia thought. I wonder where that is, and how I got there. "I'm from Earth," she said.
"Oh," Jiffy said blankly. "I don't know where that is."
A few rainbow-coloured fairies fluttered around like butterflies. "How come they aren't blue?" Sophia asked.
"Oh, the creatures of the air and sea are colourful. Only the things on land are blue," Jiffy explained. "Enough with the questions now, I have a house to build. Could you get me some wood?"

The End
