|A tale about a beautiful fairy with a BIG problem...|
Once upon a time, there was a fairy called Raymonda. Raymonda was a very beautiful fairy.She had long, mellifluent, honey-coloured hair, full pink lips, a little round nose, sparkling emerald-green eyes, and slender fingers with long, marshmallow-pink fingernails. Raymonda's only problem was that her beautiful emerald green (to match her eyes) and marshmallow-pink (to match her fingernails) dress cascaded down to meet - Raymonda's Colossal Feet. Poor Raymonda had the biggest feet in all of Enchanting Village. The shoemaker had to work all day and all night until Raymonda's shoes were ready. This was worth it, though, because, as a very rich fairy, Raymonda could afford to pay him a lot of money. One day, Raymonda decided to do something about her Colossal Feet, so she looked in the phonebook under 'sorceress'. She found a small ad in the corner of the very last page that read: Sorceress Stephanie For potions, spells, and crazy concoctions 9am - 5pm Mon - Fri Call 81748 65 Raymonda picked up her crystal telephone and dialled 81748 65. A crackly voice answered. "Who is it NOW?!" Sorceress Stephanie growled into the crystal receiver. "Ah, um, th-th-this is, um R-Raymonda B-Bluberry," stammered the fairy nervously, "Are you, um, S-S-Sorceress, ah, Stephanie?" "That's me, are you looking for a spell?" Stephanie's voice had softened now and Raymonda began to relax a little. "Well, yes, you see, I have a big problem." She giggled at her own joke. "You see, my feet are too big!" She giggled self-consciously again. "Stop giggling, I cannot stand gigglers!" snarled Stephanie. Raymonda giggled in spite of herself. "I SAID I CANNOT STAND GIGGLERS!" Raymonda's crystal receiver nearly shattered into pieces as Stephanie's voice rumbled through like thunder. Raymonda collected herself and murmured timidly. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Can you please help me with my problem?" Stephanie cooled down a bit, but she proclaimed, sniffing, "I don't do feet, the rotten things, but I have a friend who does. Josephina Stinklebottom will fix your problem, the unfortunate old girl, so I'll give you her number and you can leave me alone." Raymonda rang the number she had been given. A nice voice answered and asked her what she wanted. The fairy explained her problems and was told to come in tomorrow, 9:00 on the dot. The next day, Raymonda drove to the location given and stared in awe at Ankletoe Palace. It was huge. No, it was massive, Raymonda decided. She tiptoed up the diamond pathway and rang the bell. Inside, a 'diiiiiing, doooooong, daaaaaang, duuuuuung, deeeeeeeeng' was heard. The door was lugged open by three small elves. "We're Purple, Red and Pink Our feet positively stink We soak them in brine and even in wine But we can make your feet shrink!" Click here to read the rest of this story (54 more lines)
