William has a mission, to disprove the existence of the Treasure Fairy. Instead, he discovers a world full of magic and detective abilities he didn’t realize he had.
Granddad shouted, “William, please stay where we can see you.”
I ignored him, one more bush to go. Right in front of me, stood a fairy, the same size as me and holding a bag full of quarters. She threw one at me. I caught it and grabbed at her wings. I didn’t want her flying away. Her big green eyes looked at me and blinked as she shook her head. Sparkles of fairy dust rose into the air from her billowing light-brown hair. I let go of her wings.
“Are you the Treasure Fairy?”
“Who else would be sneaking around the bushes with a bag of quarters?”
“My name’s William. What’s yours?”
“The Treasure Fairy, silly, you already know that. As a gift for not hurting my wings, I’m going to take you and show you my castle. Don’t worry. We’ll be back before you can say Jack Robinson.” The Treasure Fairy unfurled her delicate yellow and green wings. They grew and grew obscuring the bushes, the park and the sky.
