Friday Sock Fairy Adventures

Friday July 3rd Sock Fairy Adventures in Sockland
Reader ages 6-9 Story synopsis so far…

Will is searching through the dryer for his lost soccer sock. He really wants to find the mate as his soccer socks are a lucky pair. He once scored a winning goal wearing them. As Will leans into the dryer he suddenly is sucked in and tossed about. When Will stops spinning he tumbles out into a new place called Sockland. This new magical place has mismatched socks everywhere hanging on tree branches. Three fairies fly by Will. He knows they are fairies from seeing pictures in his storybooks. He runs excitedly down the road hoping to catch up to them but trips and falls over a large rock on the road. His leg hurts but he manages to catch up just as the fairies disappear through the door into the Sock Bank. Unexpectedly Will’s size changes to very small when he rubs fairy dust over his hands. He is able to make it inside the Sock Bank behind a fairy just as the door closes. Will watches sock fairies unload their bags of mismatched socks hoping to find mates for their socks. If they can find one a gold coin is given in return. When Will spies his missing sock he runs and grabs it but is caught by the sock security guards.

Chapter 3 Melinda to the Rescue
The room got quiet. The sock security guards headed toward the door with Will. As the door opened Will looked back over his shoulder. Sock fairies were gathered in a circle whispering. All of a sudden one fairy flew toward Will. The guards looked up in confusion losing their grip on Will. “Hang on to me,” whispered the sock fairy to Will. And with that they flew out the door ahead of the guards around the corner and out of sight.

“Whew was that ever close!” said Will to the sock fairy. “Thanks for your help. I wasn’t stealing anything I just wanted my other sock. Who are you anyway?”

“I’m Melinda and I could see you needed help to get away from the guards. But remember they were only doing their job to protect the bank from thieves. What’s your name?”

“Will, but look what’s going on over there?” pointed Will to the building across the street. A group of sock fairies were looking at poster hanging on the door. “Let’s go check it out.”

Melinda grabbed Will by the hand and they flew across the street. Will who was still clutching his soccer sock was beginning to like his brand new small size.

“Will, any chance your socks are lucky? ” asked Melinda.

“Of course they are,” said Will. “I once scored a winning goal with these pair on. What’s a Sock Hop anyway?” 

“It’s a dance you go to and the best part is you get to wear your socks not shoes,” said Melinda. 

“Any chance you’d like to go to the Sock Hop and be my dancing partner?” 

Will could feel his heart race with excitement. “But I am not sure even my lucky socks will help my dancing.”

“Leave everything to me!” 

She grabbed his hand and they flew into the Avalon.
