Just stories and drawings really, no actual fissile felines.

Chapter 17

“Ahh. Here we are.” The queen looked pleased with Cherry when she flew up, holding Jane’s hand. Even more so when Lila flew up two seconds later with Day on her arm.

“This is Deja, but she prefers Day.” Then Lila added, “Please ask the tutors never to give her homework.”

“Welcome, Day.” The queen said, then thought to herself, I think I’ll adopt her. She looks a bit young.

Apparently Lila was thinking the same thing, because she said,

“Day, if it’s okay with the queen, would you like to be a royal faerie?”

“Okay, as long as I don’t have to wear dresses or anything like that. Or do homework.”

“It’s a deal. The tailor can get you a tunic and shorts instead of a dress.” Sky looked happy.

“Lila, there is a law in Faerie land. You gotta get a reward for bringing a new faerie into Faerie land. You can do whatever you want with it, but here it is. One thousand jingas. You too, Cherry. Any questions?”

“Nope,” Day said.

“Yeah. Can I put myself in a bottle?” Lila said.

“Nobody’s tried.”

“Let’s go to Cherry’s grove and have tea. Money burns a hole in my pocket – my treat!” Lila changed the subject.
