Friday Sock Fairy Adventures

Story synopsis so far...
Will is searching through the clothes in 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 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 their pictures in his storybooks. He runs 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 in the bank hoping to find mates for their socks getting a gold coin in return. When Will spies his missing sock he grabs it but is caught by the sock security guards. When the guards lose their grip on Will a sock fairy named Melinda is able to rescue him. They fly out the opened Sock Bank door around the corner and out of sight.
Will and Melinda spy a poster advertising a sock hop at the Avalon Theater. All Will needs to do is wear his lucky socks, bring his dancing partner Melinda to the Avalon and dance till dawn to win the bag of coins. Lucky for Will wearing his matched pair of socks he and Melinda are able to win the sock hop contest. But unlucky for Will the sock security police spy him in the crowd. Melinda uses her magic powers and they fly out the door away from the theater. Melinda gives Will the bag of coins and tells him to get on the Sockland Express but be sure to get off at stop #3. The driver, Rocky Socky, is a sock monkey who wants Will to pay for the ride on the Sockland Express.

Will enjoys the magical ride of the Sockland Express when suddenly the bus makes an emergency landing at the Sock Mart. A clearance sale sign excites the passengers. 

July 24th Sock Fairy Adventures  Stop #3 Trouble at The Sock Mart
Vocabulary
uproar- noisy disturbance 
The crowd pushed through the door. The shelves and tables were filled with all kinds of sock accessories. Next to the table were several large bins of mismatched socks. Sock fairies flew past Will and the other Sockland Express passengers. The sock fairies did not need shopping carts as they carried their own bags. Each one was knitted from very fine spider web threads. The sock fairies were dressed just like the fairies at the Sock Bank wearing clothes 
made from mismatched socks. 
Will saw sweaters, leg warmers, 
fingerless gloves, 
caps 
and even sock monkey slippers.
All of sudden loud screams were heard all over the store. “Stop! Stop! That’s what I picked.”
Two Sockland Express passengers were both yanking and pulling on the same sock monkey sweater set. 
A crowd of shoppers stopped to look at the uproar when two Sock Mart Security rushed to the sweater table. By now both shoppers were shouting and angry. 
“It’s mine!”
"No, its mine!”
Will saw his big chance to get to the bin of Mismatched Socks before the other shoppers. He started stuffing his shopping cart with mismatched socks. He was quite excited at the bargain price advertised two for the price of one.
“Can’t you read the sign young man?” yelled the Sock Mart manager.
“Sorry, sir I did not see the part Limit 10 socks per customer. I’ll put the other ones back, ” said Will feeling his face getting red.
Will headed to the checkout lane with his 10 mismatched socks. He took out of his pocket a little sock used to store his gold coins. 
 Will could still hear the voices of two shoppers who had been arguing over the sock sweater set as the Sock Mart Security were taking them outside to the Sockland Express. Rocky Socky honked his horn. He wanted to stay on schedule for stop #4.
As Will boarded the bus he was quite surprised to see Melinda waving at him. He found a seat next to hers.
“I didn't see you inside,” said Will to Melinda. “Look at all the mismatched socks I bought today. I’m sure I can find some matching ones at the sock bank. Then I can get more gold coins.”
“Will, if you go back to the Sock Bank you'll get caught by the Sock Security. I'm not sure what will happen to you then but I do have an idea.”
Melinda leaned over and whispered something to Will just as the bus picked up speed passing by marshes and meadows lifting off the ground and sailing over the tree tops.
