How It Happened
By: Wizard Blair Smintery
How did this all happen? I get that a lot. I can’t tell the whole world so I, Blair smintery will explain to you in this mysterious book.
First off and answer to some of you Magi-land resident questions. Yes, I was the wizard that got Brandon the hero human here, helped him on his way to save our world and brought him back to his world. Another question I get asked a lot is if I liked him. Well, of course I liked him. I mean, he wasn’t the smartest boy, but he was fun to go on a short quest with. I really did think that I was going to die or my plan wasn’t going to work when the N.H.E.A. kept getting on to me. Brandon saw the world as reversed land and sky colours, that’s only for newcomers. Eventually he saw them normally like you and I. Well, let’s stop talking about me and start talking about why I got to be this famous, why Brandon and Hal got to be so famous.
It all started when people and all their species were close and happy with Magi-land. The humans had kings and queens that made the decisions for their world. Magi-Land, on the other hand, has a council of wizards. They ruled over the creatures(Little black circular animal that have so much fur hat it makes them look large, and they talk english), Soarpys (Purple bumpy rhino-like creatures that stand on their hind legs), Cyclops (Slugs with arms and legs that have one big eye taking up their face), Gorbies(Black, fat, and round bat-like creatures) other wizards, and many others. Humans then used wood as their supplies on earth. Magi-Land had always protected their nature, a thought of such things never popped into their happy minds. Eventually a human cut down a gentotree. At the time, the queen(a beautiful giant that is about twice the size of a human and is the most direct descendant from the royal family. She never ruled the land, because it would be more fair for the council to do that but she was protected and was there to have the forces of Magi-Land protect their world and the residents of it.) was trying to protect the gentotrees. The gentoridges from the tree attached onto her. Not even wizards couldn’t get it off and it was building up a form on her leg. Scientists from the human world figured out how hard of a substance it was and soon illegally cut down gentotrees.
After not too long, our amazing queen of nature was trapped in the gentoridges in a coma-like state until she was released. Many books have been written with different opinions on this case, but I can tell you the truth. Only humans could be the ones to save our queen, so I continued to usher humans over. Our queen’s mass of gentoridges was getting so bad that humans were banned from Magi-land and had their memories wiped of anything of our world. Sending the coin up was our only chance in getting our beloved nature protector back.
A team of mostly Soarpys was formed called the H.H.A. Helping Humans association. It went on for many years but never succeeded in it’s quest: clearing gentoridges. By that time, even gentotrees were hated by everyone that knew of them.
One sad year the leader for H.H.A. died and a new one had to be picked. In this case, the new leader didn’t get picked. He was evil and hated humans ever since he was little. Some members of the group left and never joined back,but that was only few. The new boss named Chaming was not charming at all. He believed humans were bad and only they could make things worse. He looked down on them as tiny, helpless, and damaging. For some things this is true, but for many, it is not. The member of H.H.A. got all green, angry and sad. Chaming continued to rule and the group was renamed N.H.E.A. No Humans Evil Association. They became more evil and more full of unnecessary hate.
Attacks were sometimes launched on Magi-land with the N.H.E.A. behind them. A secret defence group was formed called S.O.M.L. It tried to protect Magi-land and humans from the now bad association N.H.E.A.
That is, until brandon came. The human that I was waiting for. Our hero. He saved us all from anything bad and we await his return.

“What happened? How did you make that floor thing? Was this planned?” Brandon asked, fearfully.
Blair blew out of his mouth which made his beard bellow in front of him a little. “Whoa, I was afraid my invention wouldn’t work!” he said, and paused for a bit, “And, what was planned?”
“The-the N.H.E.A. thing! The floor thing! The everything that happened!” Brandon shuttered, thinking of the horrible rhino-like creatures, Mall and Grunt. Strange thoughts came into Brandon’s mind. So many questions that somehow seemed not to need answers to. Was this a test? To test ‘The Human’? Was Blair a fake, or were the N.H.E.A. members really N.H.E.A. members? No, no, it couldn’t be. It’s not a dream.
“No, No,” Blair said, chuckling, “It certainly was not planned. You think I wanted to have my house destroyed by the N.H.E.A? They’ve been searching for me for years.”
“They have?” Hal asked from the other side of the room.
“Yeah, glad the army guys ain’t that smart,” Blair said and looked over to his sing-in attack table, ”you don’t just go to your enemy’s house and press a big button on their table because they told you to! You just don’t.”
“Okay! Okay,” Hal said reproachfully, “How are we going to save the world? Or… how is he going to?” Hal pointed a thumb to Brandon which made Brandon feel a little on the spot. He squinted his eyes.
“Mmm what are your names?” Blair asked.
“I’m Brandon,” Brandon said.
“And I’m Hal,” Hal said.
“Ok, come out into the yard with me then you two,” Blair said, getting up rickety. Brandon and Hal followed, quite very slowly after him. He went into the hallway then went into the room opposite to the golden throne room. He ducked under some plants in pots and put his hand on the wall and waited.
“Are you going to say something?” Hal asked.
Blair nodded. “It’s a really hard password to remember but, that keeps other things out. You can’t go around the castle because I put a force field there. You need a really tall Ganderter brand ladder to get over it.” Blair took a deep breath and then said the password, “It's Blair here and you won’t ever remember the password unless you write it down but you won’t because then I’ll change it and you have to use every exact apostrophe that I use to set the password like this one Happ’days.”
A section of the wall shook and then sunk backwards. Dust fell as the giant chunk of stone opened up into the bright sky. “Wow!” Brandon gasped as he looked around. There were beautiful palm trees and tall great oaks. On the ground was a mound of what looked like metal tiny spheres. Every now and then one of the would make a squeak or a “meep!”
After a bit of admiring, Brandon ducked as more tiny metal spheres whizzed by his head. “Someone cut down another gentotree,” Blair sighed sadly, “Okay, can I have you just lift up the gentoridges and make them disappear?”
Hal looked at Blair questioningly and then asked, “With his mind?”
“Yes,” Blair said, now turning to Brandon, “Do it with your mind.” Brandon looked at the squirming metal-looking gentoridges and motioned them to come with his hand. Nothing happened and the gentoridges squeaked more.
“Are they alive?” Hal asked, as Brandon now vigorously motioned at the gentoridges.
“Yes again, Hal,” Blair said sincerely, “They don’t feel pain. They’re like plants, but they have mouths and they are a very, very, hard material. They are automatically attracted to the nearest or most in number bunch of gentoridges. There are a few masses other places but this mass of them has gotten so big, that almost all gentoridges that are concealed in their trees, come to this one when freed.”
“How am I ever going to do this with my mind?” Brandon asked nervously, “I mean, I’m not a telepathic master!”
“Really think. What do you want to do?” Said Blair, “Your mission is them.”
Brandon tried hard but nothing seemed to work. For a few hours Brandon just tried in ways that started to get as Hal said “Um… Creative.” Finally, after they all had lunch, and Hal was sleeping peacefully, Brandon collapsed to the ground with a yelp.
“What? Wha?” Hal said, waking suddenly.
“I did it!” Brandon laughed happily, getting up and clutching his eye. “I did it! There was a gentoridge that I summoned, then it hit my eye and disappeared!” Brandon started doing a victory dance with his black eye in joy.
“Okay, Brandon,” Blair said with a smile on his face, “great, but you are going to get a lot beat up if you keep summoning them this way.”
Brandon nodded at Blair and concentrated again on the gentoridges. Then, after only a few seconds he heard an uproar not too far away. He glanced over his shoulder and saw the two N.H.E.A. members running towards them, leading a group of four or five more Lumpy green rhinos. As they came closer, Brandon saw one of them was carrying a really tall Ganderter brand ladder! It was all they needed to get over the forcefield.
“Blair! How are we going to stop them? They have a Ganderter brand ladder!” shouted Brandon. Blair looked panicked again but he couldn’t say anything that made sense to Hal or Brandon.
“Hup! Hup!” Grunt said as N.H.E.A. members climbed the ladder. Grunt and Mall smirked rudely at Blair.
“We’ll always be able to penetrate your defenses,” Mall smiled, “And I think, we are already registered. Everyone, attack the wizard!” The rhinos threw spears and axes Blair’s way. All he could do was duck and block them with slow magic. Grunt and Mall were going after their own treasure prey: Brandon and Hal.
“Hal!” Brandon yelled as a spear soared towards him. It landed right beside Hal but Hal took no notice. Brandon ran around the yard, his vision looking more like flashes of green and blue and slashes of light. He saw Hal and Blair crash together, and axe whipping through the air towards them.
There was a big flash of light and Brandon opened his eyes. He was laying on the ground, the queen who was about twice the size of a human, Hal and Blair all in a heap beside him. He had launched the gentoridges at the N.H.E.A. and they disappeared along with the gentoridges.
Blair opened his eyes. He held a hand out to Brandon with white light coming out of it. Brandon grabbed his hand and closed his eyes. Once he opened his eyes he was back beside his mother in the rain.
Brandon frowned, “Mom, did you see anything?”
“No,” she replied. Brandon looked down and went into the car. He went into his bedroom of his house and sighed. He was a good daydreamer.
After a few minutes his mom walked in, “Brandon,” she said, “There’s a letter here. It’s probably from Phil. Your dad found it on the doorstep.
“Thanks,” Brandon said, taking the letter from her. He opened it up and read the note inside it.
Thanks Brandon. Everything is so much better thanks to you. You seemed to have taken away all the gentotrees along with the gentoridges. I hope you are doing well. Come any time you like, you will be expected and welcomed.
-Blair and Hal
Out of the envelope fell a little copper coin. Brandon smiled to himself and went downstairs, leaving the coin on a little red cloth in his room.THE END
