Shrek woke up in the middle of the night, having trouble sleeping. He sat up straight and once again heard the roaring sound of Willa’s snoring. Then, he stood up and looked into the sky. A shooting star rushed past, and Shrek made a wish, “I wish I was human,” He hoped. All of a sudden, a clumsy fairy appeared. “Hello there, cutie! Pick your potion!” the fairy’s squeaky voice exclaimed. “Huh?” Shrek mystified. “You want to be human! I can help you! Now, pick your potion. There is, the muscular human. There is, the geeky human. There is, the normal human. And last, but certainly not least, there is the handsome or pretty human,” explained the fairy. “Uh… who are you?” asked Shrek. “Me,” the fairy laughed. “I’m Fairy Lulu. I can make all your dreams reality.” Fairy Lulu said. “Oh… um,” Shrek stuttered, unsure of what to do. “Don’t worry honey, just, choose a potion. And you’ll become a human like that!” exclaimed Lulu, snapping her fingers. “Alright, alright. I pick the handsome human.” Shrek said. With a snap of Lulu’s finger and a drizzle of “handsome human” potion on Shrek’s hands, Shrek immediately become… a human! His fat legs turned into strong ones, his body became muscular, his hands and feet became big and brawny and last, his face. Brown thick hair covered his previously bald head. His beady eyes widened and turned to light brown, his green skin turned to peach and his nose shrunk down two sizes, leaving him with a beautiful face. Then in the blink of an eye, Fairy Lulu disappeared.
The next morning, bees or birds did NOT awaken Shrek. He was awakened by Monkey’s booming shriek. Shrek rubbed his eyes, as did Willa. She turned around and looked at him, screaming along with Monkey. “Shrek! Get over here! There’s a man sleeping on your vest!” screeched Monkey. “Calm down, Monkey, it’s me, Shrek! I’m human now.” Shrek said, standing up, showing off his figure. “What? How? When? WHO?” shouted Monkey. Shrek ignored Monkey’s annoying questions and stood up. “I think it’s time we head back to the palace, once and for all,” Shrek said. He picked up his vest and slid it onto his muscular body. “Oh… y-yeah, o-o-okay,” Monkey stuttered. Princess Willa crinkled her eyebrows and finger-combed her long silky brown hair. She stood up and caught up to Shrek and Monkey.
