Sparkles was a unicorn. He was in a lovely forest, called the Meatball Forest, with Diamond the baby rabbit.
Sparkles was watching Diamond’s dreams. Sparkles couldn’t do magic and he wanted to be a Dream Watcher.
He wanted to become a Dream Watcher so that he could watch all the happy dreams that people were having so he could have a better job.
Right now, his job is that he cleans the house for his mum and gets paid in diamonds. It’s boring and he has to do the same thing every day. He wants to experience a change every day, and dreams are different every day.
In the lovely forest, it wasn’t all candy-canes and sweets and candy. There was a scary wizard named Scribbles.
Suddenly, evil Scribbles appeared, and he was behind a tree, and he was watching them. The reason everyone was scared of Scribbles was because he took away Sparkles’ magic. Evil Scribbles wanted to have more magic so he could be more powerful and have the land for himself. Sparkles wanted to get his magic back. Scribbles stopped hiding behind the tree.
He shouted a magic word:
A very big bubble appeared and it took Sparkles’ mum. Sparkles got really mad. He made a plan to save his mum.
First Sparkles called Diamond, the baby bunny, and said:
“Diamond the Wizard said a magic spell and then a very big bubble appeared and took my mum. So I decided to help.”
“Okay Sparkles, I will help you save your mum because it will be terrible if we do not,” said Diamond.
“Should we ask my mum to help because we could get lost going to the wizard’s castle?”
“Of course, it will be good of her to help us,” said Sparkles.
“I will tell her and I will be back in a second,” shouted Diamond.
“Okay,” said Sparkles.
After a while, Diamond came back with her mum.
“We have to go to the dark side,” said Diamond’s mum. Off they went to the dark side of the forest. After a few hours, they saw Sparkles’ mum and Scribbles. They quickly ran after the bubble. Sparkles popped the bubble. Off they ran and went home. They all played together and Scribbles was never seen again.
They lived happily ever after!
