Chapter 8 - Back Home
After we released Ales, we all: Master, Alex, Wizard, and I left to go back to the village.
"Where did you land after going through the door?" I asked.
"Just by that mountain," Alex said, "Then Wizard came and captured me. Where did you land?"
"In the middle of the village." I replied.
Days and nights passed then we finally got to the fork in the road.
"I wonder where that other road leads to?" Ralph said.
"Well, I don’t want to find out, I want to get home." Master said.
Soon after a couple more days we returned to the village and as we arrived we heard cheers. We traveled through the village and back to Master’s house.
"So is there any way Aaron and I can get home?" Alex asked Master.
"I don’t know," he replied, "You’ll have to ask Wizard."
"Oh, well there is one way. I can set up a door for you if it’s all right with Master." Wizard said.
"Sure, but just this once." Master answered.
"Can I ask you guys a favor? Can you take me with you? I think that if I go with you, I might get a better understanding of what your people are like." Wizard asked.
"Ok, I guess so," I said.
So Wizard set up a door for us and we left Master alone in his cottage. As for us, when we got back to the auditorium, I looked at the clock and it was still 3:00!
The next day at school (Wizard stayed in my room) Joe came and asked us where our proof was.
I told Alex and him, “Meet me around 2:00 at my house on Saturday.” (This way I could show him Wizard).
And I was smiling because I knew I had more than proof, I had a whole story! I also knew that I’d have 20 more dollars burning a hole in my pocket.
