One summer evening, a tiny fairy was flying through an enchanted forest, enjoying the nighttime breeze. Between some trees she spotted a glow, she flew closer to take a peek. From there she watched a "man" kneeling in front of a pond, he was staring at his reflection. The fairy flew even closer.
"What are you doing down here?", she asked the "man"
It was clear to her that this "man" was actually a star.
He startled at the sound of her voice and spun in that direction. Seeing the tiny fairy, he relaxed.
"I was naughty and got banned from the sky. It was just a bit of fun.", the star grumbled.
The fairy shook her tiny head after hearing what he had done and gave him a smile. "Well, I know where you can rest until your ban is over."
The star got up and followed the fairy. She flitted through the air as he walked beside her. They rounded a bend and came across a snake about to eat a mouse. The fairy quickly threw fairy dust at the snake, the star snatched up the mouse putting her safely on his shoulder.
There was a cloud of smoke and there standing before them was a naked man. The fairy gave a tinkling laugh, "Whoops!"
The snake/man smiled wickedly, plucked the fairy from the air and ran off.
The snake/man ran deeply into the enchanted forest, clutching the helpless fairy. When he felt he ran far enough away from where the star still stood, the snake/man set down the fairy on a huge stone. She tried to fly away, but he had crushed her wings during the running.
"Let me go!", she shouted at him.
He leaned down so that he was face to face with fairy. "I wasss denied my moussse dinner, you ssshall take her place!", the snake/man hissed.
The fairy screamed for help, but she was too tiny for her screams to be heard. Just as he was about to devour her, a rustling noise came from some nearby bushes. The snake/man went over to check what was in them and out popped a skunk.
"Little Stinker!", the fairy cried out.
The skunk whipped up his tail an d sprayed the snake/man in the eyes. The fairy took that opportunity to hop down onto the skunk's back.
After a few hours of resting while Little Stinker stood guard, the fairy's wings healed and were no longer crushed. The fairy bid him farewell and thanked him for the help as she flew away in search of the star. She found him sitting against a huge oak tree and a woman sat beside him. The woman had ears like a mouse and a tail peeking out from under a shirt that that the star had been wearing.
Seeing the fairy, the star smiled, "Thank goodness you got away! This is Mousey, the mouse we rescued from the snake. There was a little bit of fairy dust on the ground and I sprinkled it on her. Instant traveling companion!"
"Hello", the fairy said to Mousey. Then to the star, "Since you have a guide for around the forest I will be off on my way now."
The star helped up Mousey and then they both waved good-bye to the fairy.
