Flight Of The Fairy

Fantasy / Adventure

New To School

  She was only a plain, everyday fairy. Was why everyone treating her like she was a big deal?

  The only thing out of the ordinary was, well, she was new to this school. She didn’t even know how everybody else already knew her name. She had only just moved here a month ago, during winter vacation, and today was the very first day of the new school year.

  “Hey, Alexia!” A girl called as she walked past.

  “Welcome to the school,” Her friend added.

  Alexia spoke shyly and quietly.

  “Thanks,” She whispered. 

  Fairies stood in groups outside the building, chatting loudly. Alexia fluttered her orange wings slightly. She was a monarch fairy, one of the last. She had never met another monarch fairy, other than when she went away for winter vacation, and was always singled out because of it. At her old school, many of the kids made fun of her, which was why she was so shy and timid now. Her wings were hidden in her jacket, the cool early spring wind blowing on her face, which she tried to bury in her pulled up hood.

  A teacher opened the front doors and the fairies piled in, trying to get away from the wet air. Alexia stepped inside and was greeted with a blast of warm air. She kept her hood up, though, hiding her hair, which always matched the wings of a fairy.

  Alexia pushed her way through the crowd as she headed to her locker with everyone else. She pulled a folded out piece of paper out of her pocket. It was her schedule, and it also had her locker number and combination.

   “Locker 295,” She read to herself. She looked around and frowned. It was a pretty big school. How would she find her locker? She walked up to a teacher. His wings looked like a sunset, “E-excuse me, but where can I find locker 295?”

   “295?” The teacher repeated, “Right down this hallway, near the window.”

   “Thank you,” Alexia said quietly, walking down the hallway.

  “Oh, and put your hood down, please,” The teacher called after her. Alexia frowned. She reached her locker and started turning the lock.

   “24, 39, 17,” Alexia said quietly. 

  She opened her locker and pulled off her backpack, hanging it on the hook inside. She pulled out her books and slowly pulled her hood down. She had short, bright orange hair with four black stripes. There were also small white dots on either side of the stripes.

   She closed her locker and walked to her first class.

   “Let’s see…” She looked at her schedule, “Um, first is math…”

   Alexia realized it was very warm inside the school. She couldn’t walk around all day with her jacket. She opened her locker and pulled her jacket off after unzipping it, hanging it in her locker. Her bright orange wings unfurled and she folded them down.

   The bell rang and Alexia hurried to find the classroom.


   At lunch, Alexia sat down by herself. Her mom had packed her lunch. She opened the lunch box and saw her favorite, a milkweed salad with a side of orange slices. She smiled and sucked the nectar out of the oranges and threw the rinds in her salad. She had just began eating when someone sat down across from her. She looked up at him. He had bright blue wings, glasses, and was carrying a book and lunchbox with him.

 “Hey, mind if I take a seat?" He asked. Alexia shrugged and he sat down. He set the book down and opened his lunch. He had peas and had orange juice to drink.

"Do you like fruit juice?" Alexia asked as he pulled out his lunch. He nodded.

"Not my favorite," He said, "But it's pretty good. My favorite thing to drink is sap. It's a little sticky, but very sweet."

"Hmm," Alexia said, "I like orange nectar. It's sort of like orange juice, but without all the added stuff."

"Sounds pretty good," The butterfly said, "By the way, I'm Thomas. What's your name?"

"Alexia," The monarch answered, "I haven't seen a butterfly fairy like you before."

"Well, I'm a blue morpho butterfly fairy," Thomas said, "It's an endangered species. I haven't met another like me."

"Me either," Alexia said, her wings unfolding a little, "I'm a monarch butterfly."

"Really?" Thomas asked, "Cool!"

"Gee, thanks," Alexia blushed and smiled. She looked at Thomas' book, "What are you reading?"

"'Famous Fairies From The Past'," Thomas said, "It's a very interesting read."

"Cool," Alexia said, "I like reading, but more like fantasy and fiction."

"I've read a few fiction books," Thomas said, "They just didn't peek my interest."

"Oh," Alexia said, "So what do you have next?"

"I think I have science," Thomas said, looking at his schedule.

"Me too," Alexia said, "Maybe we could walk over together."

"That would be nice," Thomas smiled.

"So, where do you go for winter vacation?" Alexia asked, "My family goes all the way to Mexico. It's quite a trip, but so worth it! It's there where I meet a lot of other Monarchs. They travel from all over the world. I'm serious, it looks like a field of orange and black flowers."

"That sounds amazing," Thomas said, "I don't usually go to a specific area. Just somewhere warm. But Mexico sounds amazing."

"It truly is," Alexia assured, "There's this forest where we sit and rest, and it's practically covered with Monarchs."

"I wish I could go," Thomas sighed, "But my parents say it's too far away."

"Yeah, it's almost 3'000 miles," Alexia said.

"Woah, you travel 3'000 every year?" Thomas asked in awe.

"Well, 6'000, going to and back," Alexia corrected.

"Right," Thomas said. The bell rang and the two packed their lunches up before heading to their next class together.

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

mikaylapetrodos: I really enjoyed the story and I hope you publish the next part of the book soon. the plot line was always easy to follow with plenty of plot twist thrown it. I think it would have been better to explain how some characters got involved in the story more instead of them just showing up.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!
