Aaaaah... A Magical Childhood

by Y. M. Roger

“Where were you?”
I tried keeping a straight face.
“Just ‘cross the street with PC.”
It moved inside my shirt, but I kept walking.
“Good. I’m glad you and the prince are getting along. They’re an odd bunch, but I knew you boys would be fine. Do they wear their crowns everywhere?”
I stopped short in my trek upstairs, and it wriggled some more. I was just thankful I had tucked in my shirt.
“Uh, yeah. Matches their robes, I guess.”  I answered her, but I didn’t turn around. “Just glad you and dad dress normal.”
Mom walked to the bottom of the stairs. I didn’t need to see her wings flutter with her frown and her hands on her hips because I heard them in her voice.
“Merlin Michael Fae.”  Yep, she full-named me. “What are you up to?”
“Uh, nuthin’.”
Mom appeared beside me before I could say anything, reached down my shirt, and extracted the bullfrog, holding it toward me.
“Is this Charming, Merlin?”
“Yeah, it’s PC, Mom, but I can fix this!”
She took the frog and headed downstairs.
 “Mom! Where you going?”
“To call Princess' mom to bring her over here to fix this!”
