Not only did Mary find out that she could fly, she also just found an old time friend, lost from such a long time. 20 years was definitely a very long time for a friend to disappear for.
“Joe, big kid! What are you doing here in candyland?”
“I don’t know. What are you doing in candyland? I thought you were trying to lose ten pounds last time I saw you.”
“I don’t know. I just landed in here. How did you get down here?”
The two bounced questions back and forth until what was her name? Bau-Belbina? Well until that fairy-lady pinched their ears.
“Ow! What was that for?” Mary rubbed her ear.
“Pay attention!” The fairy squeaked as it zoomed around her.
“To what?” Mary got up from the ground rubbing off the gingerbread that got stuck to her clothes.
“To me puh-lease.” A voice behind her reminder her of that other girl. The one covered in chocolate. “How do you get this stuff of off your shirt!” She complained as she tried to scrape the warm chocolate off her.
“So who are you?” Mary looked at the girl curiously.
“No one asks me questions.” The girl spat at her. Mary curiously watched her tried to clean herself off as the girl mumbled under her breath. “I paid 500 dollars for this shirt. I am NOT going to have this ruined by some stupid fucking chocolate pool.”
“Chocolate pool?” Mary’s eyes lit up at the idea. “Where?”
“I already told you I don’t answer questions!” The girl snarled. “Now get yourself away from me!” Mary was not amused.
“You’re rude.” Mary responded feeling offended.
“So what? I don’t give a shit.”
“You...” Mary trailed off. She felt upset.
“Bitch?” The girl finished. “How dare you!” She stood up still covered in chocolate. “No one calls ME a bitch!” She stormed over to Mary.
“I- I wasn’t going to say that...” Mary took a step back. A hand rested on her shoulder.
“Mary. Just ignore her.” It was Joe.
“Ignore me!” The girl demanded. “Ugh! This is the most offensive thing I’ve heard. Have you two ever learned anything from the queen bee?” But Mary and Joe both turned around and walked away.
“Joe. did you know you could fly in this place?”
“What? Seriously? You have to show me.”
“You just got to believe.”
They continued chattering as the girl threw a temper tantrum. Just ignore the noise and it wasn’t so bad.
