Chapter 4: A Fairy Secret
Dear Mother and Father,
I’m writing this letter to you as my first month here in Princess Charm School has passed. I’m doing very well and I hope you are, too. It’s very nice here; I met some new friends. They’re both princesses and they’re very kind to me. Audrey cheers me up whenever I feel sad, and Melody helps me with the Royal Etiquette, something I’m not very good at.
But there’s one thing I still don’t understand. Princess Tessa seems to dislike me, and I don’t know why. She caused me to break an expensive vase during my first lesson and embarrassed me in front of everyone. I just hope I could find out why she’s doing this and make friends with her. Right now, with friends like Audrey and Melody, I’m sure I’ll be just fine, don’t worry for me.
Class is starting and I have to go now. I promise I’ll write to you more often and I’m sure I will come home as soon as I can. May the best be with you. I love you both very much.
"Blair, if you don't hurry, we'll be late again", Melody opened the door.
"Just a minute, Mel", Blair carefully folded her letter, put it back on the desk and joined Audrey and Melody, who were waiting in the corridor.
"Remember Blair, walk slowly, you're wearing a long dress. Or else..." Melody didn't get to finish the sentence, because Blair had tripped, scattering her books everywhere.
"You'll fall. I told you."
"Can't you walk without falling? For once?" Audrey teased her, helping Blair collect the books.
"I'll try." Blair smiled, slightly embarrassed. As she reached for a book, it suddenly got lifted and floated in the air. She heard a familiar voice.
"There you go, Blair." It was Elaine, the fairy teacher's assistant at school.
"Thank you, Elaine." As Blair grabbed the book, she noticed a strange look on Elaine's face. As if she was hiding something, and that "something" had to do with Blair.
But before Blair could further think about it, Audrey pulled her away.
"Hurry Blair, we'll be late!" The girls literally dragged her to the classroom.
"Did you see the look on Elaine's face?" Blair asked as they were about to enter the class.
"Yes. The look that said:'If we don't go in right now, Ms. Marie will kill us'. Let's go, Blair." Audrey couldn't wait anymore and rushed in.
Blair and Melody were the only ones left in the corridor.
"Something bothers you?", Melody asked."Elaine? I don't see why you have to be so worried. She seems to like you."
"This isn't the first time I noticed it." Blair explained."Everytime we meet, she gives me that strange look. Like I'm involved in a matter she's trying to hide from me."
Melody sighed and smiled gently.
"Nevertheless, we should discuss this later. Now, we have classes. Let's go, Blair."
Lesson started. But all morning, Blair couldn't concentrate on anything. Her mind revolved around Elaine's behavior which had been going since she attended Princess Charm School.
"Lara, do you think we should celebrate this with a party?" Tessa asked her loyal sidekick, Lara.
It was a sunny afternoon and Tessa was walking around in her room nerviously, much to her friends' annoyance.
"I think you should organize a Royal Ball and invite everyone at school. That way, you'll make them jealous." Lara sighed, apparently bored with Tessa's behavior.
Tessa contemplated the idea for a while. Make everyone jealous... Everyone, including that peasant! That would be perfect.
"Then it's settled," Tessa declared. "Diana, help me spread the invitations."
In the meantime, as Blair and Melody were sitting in their room studying, Audrey suddenly stormed in.
"Girls!", she squealed. "Tessa is organizing a Royal Ball! And we're all invited!" The waved a pink piece paper to Melody.
Melody immediately jumped from her seat and took the invitation from Audrey's hands.
"She'll invite Royalties from other countries too! I wonder if I'll find my romantic prince there..." She began daydreaming about her own prince Charming.
Ignoring Melody, Audrey turned to Blair.
"Aren't you excited, Blair? This is going to be great!"
Blair didn't seem interested. She was somewhat still puzzled by the thought about Elaine.
"This looks like a perfect occasion to cheer you up", Audrey said."Come on, let's see if we can find anything for you. See you later, Mel!" She pulled Blair out of the room.
Left alone, Melody sat next to the window, dreaming of the day her prince will come bringing her a red rose and take her to live happily ever after in a faraway kingdom.
And right in that moment, she spotted a white pigeon flying towards the window.
"Rhythm?", she reached out her hand for the bird. "My parents must have sent you here. I wonder what news they deliver." She opened a piece of paper the pigeon brought and read it. She was shocked.
"Oh Dear! How did this happen? How could it be, that they never told me about this?"
