Lexi The Leprechaun, The Sequel (PG)
She's NOT a fairy, and you better not forget it!
A few years back, I really fell in love with a comic by Bojay, where a leprechaun turns two boys who want to be "irresistible" to women into babies. Somehow I got into my head that her name was Lexi. I eventually wrote several stories (up to 4 now) with her as the main character. I also told Bojay about it and commissioned a drawing of her, which I now have framed. He was impressed by the stories and told me from now on she will always be known as Lexi!
It was actually the second time a story was inspired by one of those comics. My Sakura stories were also inspired by a comic, I think by Bojay, called "Sisters".
Anyway - here is one of the Lexi stories, which I think you will enjoy.
Lexi pressed her back against the wood of the little garden fence and tried to be as quiet as possible. Another one of the Humans had seen her and she was hiding from him. She really needed to learn to be more aware when she was playing with the water sprites -they could sense human presence faster than she, and they could also dunk under the water and hide faster than she. She did have the ability, as all Leprechauns, to move much faster on land (or in the trees), and to hide and possibly throw hunters off by using ventriloquism.
"Over here!" she threw her voice, making it seem like it came from behind him.
"Huh? Whosed tha?" The big man turned around unsteadily on his feet, one foot coming back and kicking a dandelion near Lexi, setting the seeds aloft.
Before Lexi could consider the ramifications of this, she sneezed. Lexi was, unfortunately, the only known Leprechaun in history to have allergies. "Wazzat?" the big man said, looking around. She blinked her eyes quickly to clear them and looked up to find an escape route, only to see a big hand closing around her. "Gotcha!"
"Hey! Let me go!" Lexi struggled in his hand, and considered biting his finger, but it is well known that humans - particularly boys - cause warts, and who KNEW what would happen if you got some of those germs inside you!? As it was she was going to have to shower for an hour in Orchid dew - which is very rare if you don't know - to disinfect.
The man held her up to his face to get a better look. "Hey - I gots me a lil fairy!" he slurred.
Lexi pulled her head back from being assaulted by his breath, which smelt of strong liquor. She let out an involuntary, "Ugh…" followed by a haughty, "I am NOT a fairy!" Leprechauns hate being called fairies, and Lexi quite possibly took it the worst of any of the race.
He looked at her closer. "Little body - pointy ears… you are too a fairy!" Lexi's eyes narrowed - he was in dangerous territory. He carried her in his fist back to the river shore, where he had a friend sitting on the ground, his back against a tree, downing beer like there was no tomorrow and tossing the empty cans in the river.
"Hey Rob - lookie wha I got! A fairy!" he yelled to the friend. His friend, thinking this was just an effect of the drinking (or maybe not caring) barely looked and just replied, "Uh huh - whatcha gonna do with her?"
"I dunno…" He leered at her then, "but I bet I can think of sumthin!" They both laughed at his unfunny attempt at crude humor.
"I … am …. NOT …. A …. Fairy!" Lexi said again, enunciating every word very clearly. "And you better put me down!"
He laughed at her. "Or what, lil fairy?"
Lexi pulled her golden coin seemingly out of thin air. He saw it and grabbed it quickly, even in his drunken stupor. "Hey!! The fairy's got GOLD!" he yelled, peering blearily at the coin.
"I'm not a fairy," Lexi said, "But would you like to see a fairy? Do you …. WISH …. To see a fairy?"
He looked confused for a moment. Then he looked at the gold coin again, then back to her. "Yeah! I wish to see a fairy! I'm lookin' at one right now!" he said.
This time, Lexi didn't bother to correct him. She just smiled - a smile that made him nervous and chilled him even through his clouded mind. All at once he began to get dizzy - but this wasn't the kind of dizziness usually caused by drunkenness, this was something much different.
"Hey! What's happening!?" he yelped, his hand opening as he dropped Lexi and the coin. She leapt gracefully to the ground and grabbed the coin to put it back into hiding - interdimensional hiding is an ability only the Leprechauns, elves, and fae have.
"Frank?" Rob had forgotten all about his beer and was staring at his friend in fascination.
"What's going on?" Frank's voice suddenly seemed higher. He also felt his body tightening - almost like he was shrinking - and his head felt odd as though something was shooting out of his scalp - perhaps he was losing all his hair, he thought in panic. Suddenly, he felt himself spinning around very fast, as though he were caught in a tornado.
Rob stumbled to his feet and took off running in a staggering jog, weaving from side to side as he ran. Lexi wasn't worried - as drunk as he was, if he tried to tell anyone what he saw, they'd just think it was the ravings of an alcoholic. By tomorrow morning - if he remembered anything - he would think so as well.
The spinning finally stopped and Frank fell to the ground in a heap. He was embarrassed as he looked down at himself and realized that somehow, the jeans he had been wearing had been torn from his body. Then, he was even more embarrassed as he realized all the hair on his legs was also gone.
The experience had sobered him quickly, but as he stood up, he was sure he must be having an alcohol-induced hallucination. For now it seemed as though Lexi had grown to his own size - until he looked around and realized he had actually shrunk to hers - and the clothes he had been wearing had been replaced with a VERY short skirted purple sparkling dress (almost a tutu really). The feeling of the fabric was quite different from his usual clothing - and his upper body felt different as well - he put his hand up to his head and realized that he now had very long and wavy hair, and it was hanging down his back and over his shoulders. "At least I didn't lose it," he thought to himself, trying to find something good in this.
Lexi grabbed his hand and pulled him over to the riverbank, and pointed down at the surface of the water. Looking, he realized he could see a reflection of Lexi and himself …only … there was no way that could be him! Standing with Lexi was a very pretty little fairy girl! He looked down at himself - same purple dress, same cute panties showing from beneath the hem, same long reddish hair. He did a few movements with his body and made a few faces - all perfectly mimicked in the reflection. Indeed, that was him!
"What did you do to me!?" he cried.
"I granted your wish!" Lexi said simply. When he just looked confused, she acted as though he must be very silly indeed not to understand. "You said you wanted to see a fairy! So, there you go!" She pointed at the water. "Now you have seen a fairy. And now that your wish has been granted, I have other things I need to do." She began to walk away.
"Wait!" Frank squeaked. "You can't just leave me like this!" He looked frantic. "I don't want my wish anymore - I give it back!"
"Yeah, only that's gonna be a problem," Lexi said. "You can't give wishes back … especially once they have already been granted." Technically Lexi could have got in a lot of trouble for this. The main POINT was for a Leprechaun to trick the wisher into something they would never want, so that they would give the wish back, and the sooner the better. Lexi's track record wasn't really that great on getting humans to give back their wishes - but in this case the boy really needed a lesson.
"PLEASE!" He pleaded.
"Well …" She paused for dramatic purposes. "Okay - there is one possibility. You'll have to convince your little sister to help you. I'll let her catch me, and then, if you can convince her, she can use the wish to wish you back. But - it has to be before she goes to sleep tonight! But right now - I believe your teacher is coming…"
Frank looked up to see an adult fairy coming toward them, and she looked annoyed. "Willowisp! Is that you? You are 15 minutes late for your lessons! Just where have you been?"
"Me?" Frank asked, unnecessarily. "But, but - my name isn't Willowisp, and I don't have any lessons…"
"Enough silliness, child! You've been a naughty little fairy and wasted enough time today! Now come along." Ms.Wisteria, as she was called, pulled Frank (apparently now known as Willowisp) close and then planted a quick spank to her panty-clad bottom. Willowisp elicited a surprised "Meep!" and followed with no more resistance.
Lexi hid her mouth behind her hand and tried not to giggle aloud. It didn't happen often, and it had never happened to her before, but the rumor was that the no-nonsense Ms. Wisteria would put the wayward Leprechaun over her knee if she thought the situation warranted it. She would be very upset indeed if she found out that Lexi had altered her memory just a little to make her think this human-turned-fae was a student of hers.
Willowisp sat and tried to look like she was listening to Ms.Wisteria going on about how to reclaim shiny things and how to repair broken things, but her mind was on trying to figure out how to get away, contact her sister, and convince her of who she was and that she had to help. As the evening wore on and dusk began to fall, Willowisp's mood darkened along with the skies. It was beginning to seem hopeless that she would ever be a human he again.
All at once Ms. Wisteria announced that it was time for bed. "Bed?" cried Willowisp. "But it is hardly dark outside!"
"And you know, little fairy, that you must be up before dawn to be ready to collect the morning dewdrops!" Ms. Wisteria reminded her.
Yesterday, Frank didn't even believe in fairies. Now here he was, actually taking the cliché bath in a teacup! And of course it was lavender scented. As everyone knows, fairy pajamas are just short babydoll nighties and ruffled panties - Willowisp's were blue tonight. By the time she crawled into her flower petals bed, she actually was beginning to feel sleepy.
Until Lexi appeared, that is. She had been watching everything from afar, remaining hidden, but now that Willowisp was safely alone, Lexi came out of hiding. She stood looking at Willowisp in her bed, and had a hard time catching her breath from all the giggling this caused her. Willowisp just scowled as she waited for Lexi to compose herself.
"Well, when are you gonna get your sister?" Lexi asked, once she stopped giggling.
"I can't now. Ms. Wisteria put me to bed," Willowisp pouted. Pouting was the way Frank usually dealt with things he didn't like, but while it was annoying on him, on Willowisp it just looked cute.
"Bed already?" Lexi said in mock surprise. "The sun has barely gone down. Now's when all the fun begins!"
"But apparently not for little fairies," Willowisp said sadly.
"Okay - I'll help you out," Lexi relented. "I'll put a cloak of silence over you. It will make it so that you don't make any noise while sneaking in or out of the house." Lexi waved her arms around to make it look as though she was really doing something. One thing she had learned in life was to always push the buttons - it makes you look like you know what you are doing. In reality, Ms. Wisteria was hard of hearing and wasn't going to hear Willowisp slip away anyway.
Willowisp crept as quietly as she could out of bed, wincing as her bare feet touched the cold floor. Lexi pointed at Willowisp's slippers and giggled silently at the look on the fairy's face as she slipped on the pink fuzzy slippers. "Okay - come on!" Lexi grabbed the slow little fairy's hand and started to run toward the door. While Ms. Wisteria might be hard of hearing, it was not totally unlikely that she might decide to check on the little fairy, and if that happened …Lexi shuddered. She could be accused of abducting a fairy child.
"Okay, okay, I'm coming. Slow down, Lexi!" Willowisp complained, trying to keep up. Lexi was actually starting to enjoy having Willowisp around- not just because of what she had done by zapping her into a fairy, but because she rarely had anyone to go on her escapades with her before.
As soon as they were out of the house, Lexi took her down by the Fairy Circle in the grove, where the fairies danced every night, unbeknownst to almost all humans. Once in awhile, a little girl with a believing heart could spot them, just for a shimmering moment, like glitter floating in the wind. Lexi and Willowisp hid in the tree branches, watching the fun below.
Lexi pointed out one particular boy and girl fairy couple to Willowisp, as they carefully snuck away from the group. The two young girls spied on them as they kissed in the forest, hardly able to contain their girlish giggles.
Finally, Lexi told Willowisp it was time to go. "We have to get to your sister's room before she falls asleep," Lexi warned.
Rather than risking the ground, they took a route through the trees, Lexi leaping with grace from branch to branch, and Willowisp flitting along like a butterfly, testing her new-found ability to fly. If it wasn't for having to be a little girl, she might have had fun, Willowisp thought to herself. Not that she would ever admit it.
They reached the house quickly. All the lights were out. Since Frank had taken to running around and drinking, it wasn't unusual for him not to come home at night, so no one was worried that he was missing. In fact, the way he was acting lately, it was a bit of a relief when he didn't come home. The window to his sister, Alicia's room was open a tiny bit, but as small as they were, Lexi and Willowisp slipped right through.
"I hope she's not asleep yet…" Willowisp landed right next to Alicia's pillow.
Alicia's eyes snapped open, then her mouth dropped open as she focused on Willowisp. "I knew it! I knew you were real! And dumb old Frank tried to tell me you weren't!" she said, thrilled. "Look! I put it right here under my pillow!" She pulled a tooth from under her pillow.
"Alicia! I'm not the tooth fairy! It's me- Frank! Your brother!" He tried to explain, but Alicia just stared.
"Nuh-uh! You just don't want me to know, cause you're not supposed to get caught when you exchange the tooth for a coin!" she decided. One thing she knew was that Frank would not be caught dead in those clothes!
"It's really me! How can I get you to believe me? What do I have to do to get you to wish me back?"
Alicia, still not believing, decided to have some fun. "I wanna dress you up in all my dolly clothes!" she said. Willowisp was just the right size. So for the next hour, Willowisp suffered the indignity of having to try on one sissyish party dress after another - one even came with diapers and plastic panties! Lexi happily aided with the dressing.
"Are you a fairy too?" Alicia asked Lexi.
Before Lexi could respond, Willowisp cried, "No! No - Lexi is a Leprechaun. Not a fairy!" Lexi was delighted - apparently a lesson was being learned here.
"Ok - now who was it you said you were?" Alicia finally asked again.
"I'm Frank!" Willowisp said urgently.
Alicia giggled. "Sure you are. You just spent an hour dressing up in my dolly clothes. Once, I asked Frank to play dollies with me, and he broke the head off my favorite doll, Beth." Willowisp blushed - she, or rather he, as Frank, had done that.
Lexi took the tooth. "We'll give this to the tooth fairy," she said gently. "And for it, you get this." She handed Alicia a golden coin. "You put it under your pillow, and you make a wish before you fall asleep."
"And you wish for Frank to be here in the morning," Willowisp added.
"Frank?" Alicia practically snorted. Why would she wish for that meanie to be around? "You know what I've always thought would be nice?" she said, sleepily, as she pushed the coin under the pillow. "I've always thought it would be cool to have a little sister…" And then she was asleep.
Lexi and Willowisp looked at each other. "So what happens now?" Willowisp asked.
"Everything changes," Lexi said, and it was the last thing Frank would ever hear.
"Francine, sweetheart. It is time to get up!"
Francine opened her eyes and looked around her room. She saw her toys, her canopy bed, her closet full of dresses, and her dollies. One of her dollies was sitting at the Tea Party table, and her big sister, Alicia, had forgotten and left her favorite doll, named Beth, sitting in the other chair.
Francine sat up on the bed. "Mommy, can I wear my fairy dress today?" she asked. She completely believed in fairies. Once in awhile, down in the grove, she just knew she could see them dancing there, and last night she had a strange dream - she couldn't quite remember it now, as it always is with dreams- but she thought she remembered dreaming that she herself was a fairy!
And wasn't it just yesterday that she had seen a fairy all dressed in green?
But wait – for some reason, she just knew that had not been a fairy!
Lovely!!! You must add some pictures too, maybe from Tinker Belle?
The above are clickable/linked piccies!
A very sweet and lovely story.
Very well done.
