THE KING'S HEAD
THE KING’S HEAD
It was a sunny afternoon and Puppy and her friends were spending the day at the magic fair
Oh gross! Check out that sign! Vicky Dragonfly cried out as they made their way down the fair grounds. Towards its magic shop
We serve the best rabbit tails
Because they’re made out of real rabbits! Eww I really hope that they’re only joking Puppy frowned after reading the sign
The magic shop stood next to the fire breathing roller coaster ride
Oh wow! That looks like an awesome ride! We should check it out after we check out the magic shop Tommy Cub told them. The shop looked smaller from the outside but inside was like a big warehouse. With shelves filled with magic books and other magical stuff
Daisy Penguin opened a deck of playing cards. And looked through it every card inside the deck was the ace of spades
That’s dumb who’d buy something like this? She wondered to herself. She was about to place them back when she heard Tommy screaming
Help! I just chopped off my finger!
She dropped the deck the cards on the floor and ran over towards him
Oh my god! Let me see! Let me see!
Tommy slowly raised his hand up and waved her cell phone in Daisy’s face
Ugh! You big jerk! You nearly scared me half to dead! And give me back my phone! How did you do that any way she yelled out angrily. Tommy just evilly grinned at her before he answered
A true magician never gives away his secrets. Daisy was so upset that the only thing she could think of doing. Was to give him a big push causing him to fall backwards and into a big toad
Oh I’m sorry
Well hello kids my name is Mr. Bones the owner of the store. Can I help you kids with anything?
What’s the price of this magic coin? Vicky asked
Ah! Excellent choice! That my dear is two headed coin you’ll surly never lose any coin toss with that coin. That’s for sure! Mr. Bone laughed
Two days later Vicky was showing her new coin to her friend Honey Kitten
Okay if it lands on tails I’ll give you my nutty cake. And if it lands on heads you’ll give me your chocolate cake Vicky was telling her
Okay Vicky laughed as she tossed the coin high in the air
Heads I win!
Toss it again and this time the winner takes all Honey answered her
Okay winner takes all! Vicky cried then tossed the coin higher in the air
Hey were did it go?
I think it rolled over there by those bushes Honey answered. They bumped their heads when they both dove for the coin at the same time
Suddenly everything changed the whole playground seemed to just disappeared into thin air
Hey where did the playground disappear to? Honey cried out
I don’t know but is it just me but do you feel like the world is suddenly spinning out of control? Vicky answered
No but only did the playground disappeared but the whole neighborhood did too. I don’t like this it just too weird Honey mumbled
Me neither but standing here isn’t going to help us any. Come on let’s go and see if we can find anybody who can tell us what’s going on? Vicky answered her. They kept walking until they came upon a wide golden path that lead up to a castle door
Okay I’ll wait here while you go and knock Honey told Vicky
Me? Why don’t you do it? Hey did you just hear that Vicky frowned
Yah it sounded like a horse uttering Honey answered. They ran over towards where they heard the noise. It was a small hut inside was a small boar with a stoned face standing over a fire fixing a horse shoe
Umm excuse me sir we seemed to be lost can you please tell us where we are? Vicky asked. The boar turned around and frowned
Silly fools why are you wearing those strange costumes? And what kingdom did you children belong to?
Kingdom? We don’t belong to any kingdom we come from a town called Rocky Shores. Which seemed to have disappeared into thin air Vicky explained
And does this king of this so called Rocky Shores know that you’ve fled from his kingdom? The boar asked
What? I just told you that we don’t belong to any kingdom Vicky frowned
I see stay right there and don’t try to escape the boar frowned back
Escape from what? We just want to know where we are? How we got here and how we can get back home? Honey sobbed
Honey I don’t think we should wait let’s take off before he---. And before Vicky could finish her sentence a huge net fell over them
Hey let us out of here! She screamed. One of the boars leaned closer towards with a big creepy smile on his face. He answered
Don’t be foolish little ones we just captured the two who beheaded our king!
What? We are just kids! We didn’t behead anyone! Honey cried out. But the guards just laughed and high fived each other as they dragged them back to the castle
Flicking wall torches blinded them as a loud spooky voice from across the room cried out
Excellent job! You captured them!
No they didn’t! We don’t even belong here! Vicky yelled you’re making a big mistake
Silence foolish one! The only mistake that was made was you thinking that you’ll get away with it the old boar growled at her
Did you really believe wearing those silly costumes would save you from being caught he added
But we’re not wearing any silly costume we dress like this every day Honey cried out
Surly you can come up with a better excuse then that the old boar smirked guards take them to see the king
At the end of the hall the old boar stepped aside as the guard pushed opened the door. Against the far wall sitting at a wooden table was the king. Vicky and Honey screamed in terror when they noticed that he was headless
Your highness I’m pleased to report that we’ve captured your assassins the boar smiled. The girls screamed again when the headless king raised his hand and began to write on a piece of paper that was in front of him
How can he still be alive when he doesn’t have a head! Honey cried out. They all ignored her outburst and read out loud what the headless king wrote
WHERE IS MY HEAD? WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT!
We didn’t do anything with it! Why doesn’t anyone believe us! Vicky yelled. The headless king slammed his hand on the table then began to write again
TAKE THEM TO THE EXECTIONER AND BRING ME BACK THEIR HEAD! WHEN HE’S FINISHED!
What! This is all a big mistake! Honey cried out
WRONG! YOU’RE THE ONES WHO MADE THE MISTAKE WHEN YOU CUT OFF MY HEAD! NOW TAKE THEM AWAY!
A few seconds later they were outside standing in front of a strong boar who was dressed all in black. With a big ax gripped tightly in his hand
The dragonfly will go first do you’ve any last words? The boar asked
Yes I do my name is Vicky Dragonfly my friend and I come from a town called Rocky Shores. We never hurt anyone we don’t even know how we got here or why
Silence! Now continue with the beheading!
Wait for what? Would you like to confess and take your friends place? The old boar smirked
No I want to make a bet with you she mumbled
What kind of bet the old boar frowned
Vicky has a coin in her pocket she’ll toss it in the air. And if it lands on head you’ll let us go but if it lands on tails we’ll confess Honey explained
Fair enough but I must warn you that I never lost a coin toss in my life! He laughed
Okay here it goes Vicky cried as she threw the coin high in the air
Its heads! We win! They both yelled
What? How is that possible I never lose the old boar growled
So we can go now right? Vicky shrugged
Take them to the caves! Until I decide on what to do with them he ordered
Huh? No wait! You said that you’d let us go
Oh I did didn’t i? Sorry kids but I lied the old boar smiled
A few minutes later they were being pushed inside of cage
Oh great! Now what? Honey muttered they’re going to keep us locked down here forever
That’s what you think we’re getting out of here right now Vicky smiled holding up the key to the cell
Oh my god Vicky! How did you do that? Honey cried out
I’ll tell you some other time now let’s go before they decide to come back Vicky answered her then lean against the bar. And placed the key inside the lock that clicked softly as it opened. They quickly ran out of the caves and around the corner and kept running until they couldn’t run any more. Once they were outside the castle Honey turned to Vicky
I was thinking this all happened when we both went to grab for the coin at the same time. maybe if we try it again it’ll bring us back home
That sounds like a great idea okay here it goes nothing Vicky shrugged as she threw the coin in the air. When it landed they both dove for it but nothing happened
Maybe we’ve to do it in the same spot or someplace close to it Honey shrugged
Maybe but I’ve another idea what if we find the king’s head Vicky answered
It’s worth a try but we can’t go back inside the castle. We probably be caught within five minutes if we do
Yah but hiding out here is not going to help us any. Come on let’s go check around and see what we can find out Vicky told her. A few minutes later they were walking around the town when they came across a small shack
Let’s start in here that’s pretty weird why would anyone have a pile of hay inside their shack? Vicky frowned. Honey was about to answer her when a large boar walked inside the door and asked
Well, well and who might you two be?
Well umm sir we’re visiting from a far, far away land in hopes that we’d find the best umm Vicky began
Hay! Honey finished for her
Oh well if you’re looking for the best hay then you must go the barn yard. If you like I can take you there the boar answered them
Oh no! I mean I know where that is thanks and sorry again Vicky smiled dragging Honey by the arm towards the door
A few minutes later they were digging around a big hay stack that was behind castle. And just when it seemed like it was a big waste of time. Vicky pulled out the king’s head
Oh wow! I can’t believe it you actually found it! Honey cried out
Yah now let’s go back and tell the king hopefully after. We give it back to him we can finally get back home Vicky smiled as she threw the king’s head inside a big sack. When they walked back inside the castle they tried to tell the old boar but he just laughed
Silly fools don’t you realize that i was the one who planned this whole thing. Soon I will be taking over and ruling this kingdom however I see fit. Now I don’t know where you fools have come from but it’s time that you two disappear. And this time you won’t escape he growled. And before any of them could answer an angry voice cried out from inside the bag that Vicky was holding
You foolish old fool I just heard every word that you’ve said. And you’ll very soon pay for your crimes against me!
But sir you—
Silence! The king barked as soon as I’m untied with my body. I’ll make sure you’ll taken away never to see the light of day ever again!
And before the confused boar could reply Vicky cried out
Your highness let me do the honors! She then slowly took out the king’s head out of the bag and placed it back on his body. Once it was scared the king barked for the guards
Lock him up inside the cave and throw away the keys!
Once they left the king turned to Vicky and Honey and asked
Now tell me again how you kids wandered into my kingdom?
They quickly took turns in telling him the whole story start to finish
Let see this coin that you speak of?
Vicky carefully took the coin out of her pocket and gave it to him. When he carefully looked at it he told them
The face on this coin looks a lot like me
Yes here I’ll show you
He took out a box in where he keeps his coins and tossed over to them
Here you may keep this as a token for helping me
Both Vicky and Honey went to catch the box and just like before they bumped heads. And then everything went black
Hey look we’re back! Honey cried out happily as she pointed towards the school
Yah I guess we did what we were meant to do and as a reward it brought us back Vicky shrugged
Hey where have you two been lunch time is almost over. And we’ve been looking for you guys all over Tommy frowned
That my friend is a very long, long story one that not even in your wildest dream. You’re ever going to believe! Honey laughed
