The Secret Agent rode his scooter through the garden enjoying a day off. He heard a bike approaching and sensed that the unexpected was about to happen.
Quickly, the bike gained on the Secret Agent.
The Secret Agent raced to evade the bike. He wanted a day off, not an adventure.
The bike’s rider called out to him, “Please! Stop! I won’t hurt you. I am your friend.” She laid her bike on the ground to end the chase.
The Secret Agent allowed the rider to approach his scooter. She knelt in front of him and said, “I am the Autumn Fairy. I have been sent to give you a treasure. Will you journey with me?”
The Secret Agent looked into the fairy’s eyes. He decided to trust her.
The Autumn Fairy picked a dandelion clock, closed her eyes, and blew a wish.
The Secret Agent found himself being pulled behind the Autumn Fairy in a red wagon. The wind and road rushed past him. They moved so fast that the Secret Agent did not know how far or where they traveled.
Suddenly, the Autumn Fairy stopped the red wagon in front of a white archway. “We are here,” she said. “Wait for me.”
The Secret Agent waited, and soon saw the Autumn Fairy return on the wooded path. She handed him a pine cone and said, “This is your future. Guard it well.”
After giving the Secret Agent the pine cone, the Autumn Fairy disappeared. The red wagon popped back to the garden where the Secret Agent had been riding. The Secret Agent called and called for the Autumn Fairy. She did not return.
The Secret Agent stopped yelling and instead studied the pine cone. It looked ordinary. Little did he know that it would bring him the greatest adventure of his life. But that is a story for another day.
