Along, long ago there was a land known as “Fairy Land”. There were different magical creatures over there, such as fairies, goblins, elves, unicorns, mermaids, and Pegasus. I accidentally fell in that enchanted land. There I saw trees made of cotton candy, fields of popcorn, and houses made of cake.

I bumped into a fairy who stared at me, and then said, “Oh no! There’s a human in our world! I better tell the King and Queen about you!”

Saying this, she flew away. I got worried, so I ran and ran and didn’t stop until I was too thirsty to run anymore. Fortunately, I saw a river. As I went near it, I saw that it was a river made out of chocolate milk! I drank some of it.

Soon my heart started to pound, because I heard voices nearby. Someone was saying, “We better find that human before she tells anyone else in her world about our existence.”

I found a bush which was made out of a chocolate donut with sprinkles. There was a hole into it which allowed me to peek and see them. An hour had hardly passed, but it felt like forever. I didn’t know the first thing about this place so I was lost.

Suddenly I saw a beautiful white unicorn with a rainbow mane. I was terrified but I thought it might be friendly so I told it that I was lost and couldn’t find my way. It told me that all the creatures were looking for me, “It is not very common for a human to enter our world” it had said. It told me to hop on her back as she would take me home.

We flew through the gingerbread bridge, the strawberry milk stream, and the chocolate mountains. Suddenly it started snowing but- It was snowing vanilla ice cream! I stuck my tongue out to lick the ice cream. It was delicious and a good treat as I was starving. Finally we reached a large brick wall, with a portal, the unicorn said Good Bye, and told me to promise it not to tell anyone about it.

“I promise” I said, as I was going I saw an army of goblins, elves, fairies and other creatures coming, but it was too late, I was in my bedroom safe and sound. I didn’t tell anyone about my secret, but I always remembered the adventure where I was lost in Fairyland.
