Unicorniolio, the Amazing Flying Unicorn

Chapter 1:

Once, in a magical world, and in a far off land, lived a unicorn, and his name was Unicorniolio. He was a bright, silvery white handsome beast. His strong, feathered wings were tucked tightly against his sides and his long, pointed horn was shiny and twisted and turned in mixed colors of white, silver and gold. Unicorniolio went to Unicorn school in the Unicorn village where he studied all things unicorn. Often when he was in school, Unicorniolio would daydream about being able to fly and soar among the clouds. It wasn’t unusual for Unicorniolio to daydream and doodle about a flying adventure. But, one afternoon, without Unicorniolio noticing, his teacher walked behind him in class and saw the picture that Unicorniolio drew. It was a drawing of Unicorniolio flying over his unicorn field. Upset by this, his teacher, Mr. Thunderbottom reached down and grabbed the paper off his desk, right out from under Unicorniolio’s elbow making him lose his balance. His head hit the desk and all the students laughed at him. “Daydreaming of flying again Unicorniolio?” Mr. Thunderbottom barked. His face turning pink and shifting the gaze of his sky blue eyes and long dark eyelashes toward his teacher, “Yes, sir”, replied Unicorniolio reluctantly. “When will you ever learn, unicorns have never flown, do not fly and will never fly in the future! Do you understand me?”

Some of the students in the class were laughing at him, whispering in class and pointing and snickering, making fun of him. After school a unicorn boy in Unicorniolio’s class said to Unicorniolio, “My dad says your dad is a Believer. He says your dad is crazy and Unicorns never flew! He says your whole family is crazy!” Unicorniolio answered angrily, “Don’t you talk about my dad that way. He’s right, Unicorns did once fly!” He is so unicornnoying, so unicornegative, thought Unicorniolio. The other unicorn laughed and said to his bully friends, “Come on guys, let’s go play some unicorn ball and then we can all fly away!!”

The other unicorns laughed and made Unicorniolio sad and feel alone. Unicorniolio looked down at the ground, his head hanging low, and started to walk home when he bumped into another unicorn. “Hey watch it!” When he looked up, he saw the most beautiful unicorn he had ever seen. Embarrassed once again, his face turning rosy red, Unicorniolio said, “I’m sorry, I er, uh, I didn’t see you.”

“It’s OK. Those guys are creeps. What’s your name?” said the female unicorn.

“My name? Oh, my name, it’s Unicorniolio.”

“My name is Unicornelia,” said the pretty Unicorn. “It’s nice to meet you Unicornelia,” said Unicorniolio.

“Nice to meet you too. I just wanted to say, I don’t know for sure if the Unicorns ever flew in the past, and there really is no way to prove it. I guess you just have to believe. But, I think to go through life never believing that unicorns once flew or will ever fly in the future is a kind of a bummer way to look at things. I’d much rather believe that maybe we all will fly some day, or at least did at one time. Oh well, see you around Unicorniolio. It was nice meeting you. I’ve gotta run. Bye!” And with that, Unicorniolio’s heart pounded.

Kassidy Duncan: This is a really sweet story, and I'm really enjoying the premise! It's cute, but also is put forward well in terms of a TV drama (as in, I could definitely see this being acted out). There were a few spelling and grammatical errors that I noticed, but other than that, it was a great read.

emilia handy: THIS BOOK WAS JUST SO AMAZING?!?!!??! I couldnt make myself stop reading it. it had such amazing characters and an amazing plot twist. i suggest everybody should read this that likes humor as well as romance.

alicialinglitter: The book was amazing! It was not exactly the cliche which is hard to find now a days but the unique plot just blew me away. Of course, there’s the cliche ending, but what’s a good book without one? Bravo

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care. [Rating: 4....

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Chelley McD: The author did an impressive job designing this story, from the wording to the expression, to the plot. I love the fire-y moments, and the bantering between main characters is to die for! Great job, keep up the good work!! 😘

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Dhira Vidhea, author of Boy Who Broke In My Window, an otherwise engaging tale of love and acceptance of the quirkiest of individuals, whose overall conception of the plot is spot-on and whose writing style is impeccable and as for her writing skills they are the best I've ever seen, tho...
