"Please," whispered Deana, the corner of her dress wrinkled and damp," just show me the way home."
The snot colored pixie continued to glare, unwavering in her decision.
Lily, not fully able to fully comprehend the elder's decision, asked the obvious question," But, Lumi, how can she stay with us? She is way too large. Plus, as grandma said, it is against the rules to allow her to stay."
It was now Lily's turn to face Lumi's glare," How dare you question our decision. You, the selfish pixette who got us into this mess by showing off. You have no permission to speak. I will have a word with you when we return to Krasivaya"
The twinkling circle of lights twittered and chattered amongst themselves as they witnessed the curt exchange. They had discussed the dilemma Lily had addressed. How would they be able to take Lily into Krasivaya? She was too big and this had happened only once before. But that once, had caused a crisis in Krasivaya. A crisis that still remained unresolved. They went to Lyublyu the healer and wisest of the pixies, to ask her for an answer. She stated what they all knew, but did not want to hear. That in order to make Deana into a pixie, to protect Krasivaya and their people, they would have to use the glistening heart spell. A powerful and ancient spell which had never been carried through to completion. It was only used once before and it created the crisis that continued to plague the pixies of Krasivaya. Because, only the those with innocent and pure hearts could be turned into pixies, but if they did not become pixies, they became something black and wicked.
Those there at the only other time the glistening heart spell was used, shivered and cringed, at Lyublu's words, but they knew she was right. A kuroi would be safer for their people than the exposure of their race to humans.
Thus, they had agreed on the glistening heart spell, but all agreed it would be Lyublyu who would cast it.
