My Night at the Ballet 5: My Night at the Concert

My Night at the Ballet 5: My Night at the Concert

Warning : this is almost all fictional.

Once upon a time, there was a family. Two people in that family were very very very famous, and were part of the ABBA band. Those two people were named Ruby and Allegra Simpson. As they left for their concert, Olivia, their sister, realised that she had forgotten her sunglasses (her secret powerful sunglasses). She hurried up to get them. Upon arrival, Ruby and Allegra practiced their singing and dancing. They sang their new song, Mamma Mia, as a final practice, and went on stage. Olivia, with her magical sunglasses noticed that something was wrong with the stage. She told Lily, and the pair went in the direction of the stage, but alas! it was too late! Ruby and Allegra stepped on stage, ad started to sing: “I was cheated by you, and I think you know when…” “I will never get tired of hearing them sing” said Olivia. But then at the part that goes “Look at me now”  They both  disappeared! The rest of the band tried to carry on, but the uproar was too loud!

*meanwhile*

Ruby and Allegra found themselves in a forest. They were surrounded by lions. They knew that lions never usually killed, only if they were hungry. And, unfortunately for them, these lions were very hungry…

*meanwhile*

Olivia and Lily were at home in their room, thinking what to do. Whenever one of them had an idea, the other would realise the problems: Olivia would suggest researching portals, Lily would point out they had no idea where their sisters were. “Could be in the neighbouring country.”  Lily would suggest missing person posters and Olivia would say “what if they’re in an alternate universe. They finally decided to do different jobs; Olivia would go to the library and research portals and Lily would make missing person posters.

*meanwhile*

There was only one thing that Ruby and Allegra could do. They took out their sandwiches, took out the tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce (Which there were a lot of as they were conveniently carrying those of their sisters and parents) And gave them to the lions. The lions became like kittens. Then, the chief lion came up, and took them to the Sacred Lion Lake. The pair watched in surprise as the lion’s hind legs melded into a sort of mermaid tail. It had golden scales, but the males had pink streaks, and the females had blue streaks. The girls  jumped into a canoe, and canoed (Who would guess) all the way to a platform in the middle. They watched as the lions jumped out of the water, and developed wings and started flying up, only to fall back down again and grow a tail. They repeated this until the chief roared a roar so loud that the platform shook, and the girls fell into the water.

*meanwhile*

Olivia was researching portals, and had gone through sixty-three books already and had stumbled over to the last shelf when it hit her (literally, a book on portals fell off the shelf) and she picked it up and went to  the table. She sat there for about ten minutes when she read : “Portals are an art. Portals are magic. Portals are beautiful. Portals allow you travel through Galaxies, Worlds, Planets or maybe just towns, countries, or cities. Portals are difficult to make, but with the right tools, it can take merely days. I have been helping people find their families for a few months now, as I have been making Portals since I turned one.” Says Portalist December-Willow Casswell Becker. “Wow!” cried Olivia. She never knew that her baby cousin made Portals! She quickly jumped up, ran out of the library to the nearest telephone. She called her cousin “Dex”, and asked if she could come and build a portal. Dex agreed, and Olivia ran to call Lily. But Lily would not pick up! “Oh well.” Sighed Olivia, walking home.

*meanwhile*

Lily was not at home. Nor was she sticking up missing person posters. She had been looking through photos to stick on the posters, when she saw one of herself, Ruby and Izzy. She remembered all the times the three had escaped danger, how they had saved each other from danger. She recalled the incident with the sheep where Izzy had nearly died, and the sheep had died* . She smiled.

* To learn more about the sheep, read “My Night At The Ballet 3: The Defeat of Doom. Or maybe read the first ones first: My Night At The Ballet, My Night At The Ballet 2: The Sequel, And there is also My Night At The Ballet 4: The Missing Aliras

*meanwhile*

Allegra and Ruby were saying sad goodbyes to the Lions Of Three Kinds (Original huh) And set off to find a way home. They walked for hours, stopped for lunch: A coral cake and sea weed sandwich, with lake water. (It sounds disgusting, but actually, it is delicious) And the lions had gifted them with more food for the Journey. Suddenly, as they had packed the food up into two bags, took one each and set off, Giant vultures took them to their evil lair…

*meanwhile*

Olivia and Dex were building a portal together. As nothing interesting has happened, I will move on.

*meanwhile*

Lily was on a plane to Wales, UK. She had yet to call Izzy, but she knew that she would help. Anyway, she arrived, took a taxi, a bus, a tram, a train, and a boat across a lake, and then one more taxi, and had arrived. She knocked on the door, weary, hungry, and money-less, and was welcomed in. Jill gave her a hot chocolate, a piece of cake, and a warm jumper, and called Izzy down. “What happened!” cried Izzy. Jill suddenly decided that she had to check on the sheep. So Lily replied: “Well, Ruby and Allegra arrived at their ABBA concert, and went on stage. Olivia noticed something was wrong with the stage, and we went to check it out, but the song started. We went back to our seats, and they stepped on the stage, and started to sing. But the two girls went missing! As in, poof! Disappeared! So, Olivia and I started researching, Olivia went to see about Portals, and I was making missing person posters. I was looking at photos, when I thought of you, rushed to the Airport, took a plane, a taxi, a bus, a tram, a train, a boat across a lake, another taxi, and I arrived here.”  Izzy took a deep breath, digesting it all, and –“I have a plan.” “Yes! I knew you would! You are always the sensible one out of us Aliras’!” Said Lily. “Do you want to hear the plan or not?” Asked Izzy. “Sorry, go on.” Replied Lily. “Well, here’s what we’re going to do…”

*meanwhile*

Ruby and Allegra’s sole salvations was the fact that they both had food, and were both together. Suddenly, Allegra’s Giant Vulture flew in the opposite direction of that of Ruby’s. Ruby screamed: Aaaaahhhhh! Allegra panicked started doing a wild jig and knocked herself out. “Well, that was stupid” sighed Ruby. As the flight progressed, she started to feel tired, hungry, and thirsty, so she tried to get her back pack, but she slipped out of the grasp of the Giant Vulture, and  fell…

*meanwhile*

Olivia and Dex had finished their Portal And where on a search for a belonging of one of their sisters that had disappeared. They found Allegra’s favourite necklace, the one with the picture of herself, and they ran back to the Portal, and placed it in the little hole. They filled the hole with earth, grasped hands… and jumped in.

*meanwhile*

Lily and Izzy were in the process of Walking. As you may know, Walking is a skill that Aliras’ posses. It is when one Walks between Worlds, Galaxies, Universes and even within a World. Lily and Izzy were two of the ten Arias in all the universes. As you may have guessed Ruby is too. As they Walked through the Worlds, they Sensed  another Aliras, and walked to that spot in that world. As they saw the ragged person snacking on seaweed, they decided that they must have found one of the other seven Aliras’. As they started to leave, the Aliras turned around, and saw them both. “Lily! Izzy!” Cried Ruby. The pair turned around, and saw the face of their friend. “Ruby!” Izzy cried. They ran to each other, and the trio hugged. What happened?” asked Ruby. “Why are you here?” “Well,” Replied Lily “We came to look for you and Allegra. Where is Allegra, anyway? Is she swimming?” “Let me explain the whole story.” Said Ruby. And she began to tell her tale. “Well, Izzy, I don’t know how much Lily has told you-“ “She told me everything up until you disappeared.” She replied “Right. We can begin. We happened to land in the middle of some hungry Lions… “ as she told her tale she roasted seaweed over her fire. She sandwiched it between coral and shared around her sandwiches. “And then the Giant Vulture dropped me, and I landed here.”  Then Lily suddenly yawned. “So tired” She said. Ruby rolled out her mat made of leaves and seaweed, got out her blanket made of lion’s fur, and feathers, and let her sleep. “So, what happened to Lily?” Asked  Ruby “Well, she and Olivia did different things. Olivia researched Portals, and Lily was going to make missing person posters…” As she spoke, Ruby sat in stunned silence. “And then we found you” She finished off. The pair snuggled together near the fire to keep warm. They really were a good team.

*meanwhile*

Allegra woke up to find herself chained to a wall. There was stale bread and water on a plate. She devoured them. She heard a key in the lock, and an evil looking woman came in.(I say evil looking because she had a crow, a bat and a rat, and was wearing a black dress, she had black lips and eyes, and her hair was in a bun. She had high cheekbones, and in her hand rested a black wand with a small green and black crystal on the end. She had a long black cape, and an Evil smile.) “Allegra is it?” She nodded. “Well, I would like you to do something for me.” Allegra laughed. “Well, I would like you to give me some food, some new clothes, because these ones are all slimy, and then let me go, but you are not going to give me that, so you can bum off ‘cause you can’t always get what you want”. The Evil Queen’s eyes turned to ice. “Well. Thank you for that. Now, I would like you to-“ “Oh yeah, on that list of stuff I want you to do, please add that I would like a Giant Vulture to fly me ad my friends ho-“ She was cut off as the Evil Queen said: “You mean you, a silly little Aliras, would like one of my VGV’s? One of my Vampiric Giant Vultures? The Evil Queen laughed. “What, lost for words?” “No” Replied Allegra “Just wanted to say that my name is Allegra, and I was wondering what your name is.” The Evil Queen laughed before she replied “My name is Queen Ingrid the Evil, and you are going to help me find your fellow Aliras’ so that I have more Power. I am a hybrid between Portalist and Witch. I have a whole colony of VGV’s under my command. I have one Aliras under the name of Leander, and have two Travellers that see the future past and present, so that I can predict any attack. I have two Seer’s who check if anyone has poisoned me. And last, but by all means not least, I have sixteen mages under my command trained for battle. Some would say that I am invincible.” “Wait. What is an Alira, or a Portist, or a Traveller, or a Seer?” “You honestly don’t know?” Asked the Queen.

*meanwhile*

Olivia and Dex were confused. As soon as they jumped through the portal, they noticed a big castle in front of them. The second thing they noticed was that they had conveniently aged to about twelve, and Olivia looked different, but Dex was sort of the same. Well, they went to the castle gates, but the guards would not let them in. So, they tried a trick. They told the guards that they were guest of the Queen, and that she was throwing a special feast for them, and that she would be upset if they were not there, (“And you know what she gets like” said Dex. The guards nodded agreeably)  They told them that their VGV’s had flown away, and that they were in desperate need of a bath. The guards seemed to believe them, and let  them in. “Thank you,” cried Dex “And see you soon!” added Olivia.

*meanwhile*

Lily was the first to wake up. She went to the river nearby and decided that she wanted to go swimming. She jumped straight in as it was very humid. She paddled around, and then realised that the current was to strong. She had accidentally swum downstream! The water was pulling her towards the water fall. She tried to swim away, but she couldn’t! The only thing she could do was jump onto a rock. She quickly did so, and was amazed by the amount times that she had almost died but didn’t. Meanwhile, back at the camp Izzy had woken. She went to see what food there was, and noticed that Lily’s bed was empty. Deciding that she had gone swimming, she continued on her quest. She accidentally tripped over Ruby, and Ruby jumped up crying: “No! Help me!” and ran to the river. Izzy, afraid, crept after her. Ruby had jumped in, and quickly climbed out again. “The current is to strong. I would be pulled to the waterfall.” She said. Izzy blanched. “This morning, I woke up, and noticed lily was gone. I assumed that she had gone swimming, but…” She gulped. Just then, they heard a voice calling in the distance. They look ed at the river, and saw a figure on a rock. They edged along the water, and saw that the figure was Lily. The rock she was on had begun to crack

*meanwhile*

Allegra was being questioned about her knowledge of Supernatural’s (Which was not very much) and on her knowledge of Naturals (Which was mostly fake rubbish) when there was a knock on the door. Ingrid went to the door and opened it, and when her visitors saw Allegra, they were shocked that she was here. As they had grown up, Allegra didn’t recognise them. They quickly bowed. “Your Majesty,” Said Dex. “We have come to retrieve the human from you.” Ingrid, outraged, ordered for her guards to come. “Wait!” Cried Olivia. “Our King sent you a message, but it must have gotten lost on the way. Would you let me explain?”

*meanwhile*

Ruby ran back to their camp, and got her back pack, the bed stuff and a vine. As she ran back to the waterfall she had begun tying the knots. She wondered what would happen if she died here. She arrived at the waterfall, and threw down her makeshift rock, but it was to late. The rock fell, and the rope caught on a stone instead. Ruby and Izzy stared down to the bottom of the water fall, numb. They both recalled the good times they had had together, as they stared. Meanwhile, Lily was climbing up the rope underwater. At the last second, she had jumped off the rock, and caught the rope. Now she was climbing out of the water. She went to look at what Ruby and Izzy were looking at. She figured it was the rock that had held her for so long. “I will always be grateful to that rock.” She said. Ruby just nodded, numbly. “It held me for just enough time.”  They both turned in surprise. “Lily?” asked Izzy. Ruby tentatively prodded her in the tummy, as if to make sure that she wasn’t a ghost. “There are many types of Supernatural’s, Ruby, but ghosts are not one of them” Lily smiled. “Lily!”  they both cried, and jumped up for a hug.

*meanwhile*

“Our king took a Natural to study it. But one day, an evil force of darkness swept over the city, looking for a body to inhabit. King Tejus offered the Natural to him, and the darkness agreed. But, the day before King Tejus signed the contract, she was stolen from our kingdom. So, King Tejus sent his messengers to tell the neighbouring kingdoms, but no Natural arrived. So, he sent out his knights to find the human girl, because if he did not give the Natural to the darkness, it would take over the land and rule every kingdom.” Olivia told the Queen. “If you would be so kind as to hand over the Natural, then you would be honoured in our kingdom for the rest of your life, and more, and you would be welcome to come to our kingdom whenever you want, although, yours is by far much grander.” Continued Dex. The Queen thought about it for a moment. “Fine.” She agreed. “But if I find out that you are lying…”  “I assure you, we are not lying.” Said Olivia. “Yes, but I will still do a precautionary measure.”  She walked over to her draw, and pulled out a vaccination needle, and filled it with something. She stabbed Allegra in the arm, and Allegra started to cry (She hated vaccinations.) The Queen uncuffed Allegra, and she was free. Allegra screamed and shouted the whole way out. “Allegra, shut up, its me and Dex!” Cried Olivia, once they were out of the castle. “I don’t believe you.” Said Allegra. “Well, I’ll tell you something only I know.” Said Olivia. She thought for a moment, and then said: “You hate mushrooms because you say that they feel like slugs in your mouth.” “Fine, but I just want to say could you not have stopped her injecting me with an unknown serum?”

*meanwhile*

 Ruby, Izzy and Lily were joking and laughing, having no care in the world, when they heard a squawk, and a scream, and some voices. They were suddenly reminded of Allegra, and quickly packed up their stuff, and tiptoed off. They ran as fast as they could, but they could still hear the shouts of surprise and “There have been people here very recently!”. They saw a bush, and hid behind it. They had stepped under a weeping willow! “This will make a nice place to rest,”  Said Izzy. They agreed, and set about making beds.

*meanwhile*

Olivia, Allegra and Dex were very surprised. They had accidentally stumbled across a birds nest, while trying to find a place to sleep for the night, and the bird had attacked them. They had quickly run ti cover, only to find the remnants of a fire, and flat grass where there had recently been beds. Nearby, there was a waterfall, which would be good for washing in. they looked around for food, and found some berries, and some coral. “That was the coral that the Lions of Three Kinds gave me. Perhaps they have been here!” Cried Allegra. “Well, I have to say, we have officially been to Hell and back.

*meanwhile*

In their new willow house, Ruby, Lily and Izzy were eating food. They were finishing off their supply of coral, and had enough seaweed left for one meal. They decided to hunt for more food. They made a schedule.

Morning                                               Midday                                                    Afternoon

Izzy        Collect breakfast                                Make a fire                                           Look for a way out

Ruby     Make Beds.                                      Look for a way out                                 Collect dinner

Lily        Look for a way out                            Collect lunch                                          Make sure the fire                                                              does not go out

They fell into their routine easily. They kept looking for Allegra, But it grew harder as the people who had frightened them out of their first camp seemed to be following them. Some nights, they went without a fire, but they had to snuggle together as it was a cold land. But there was nothing they could do about the flat grass. They tried to sleep on rock, but there was not always rock, and if there was then the next day they grew weary, as none of them had a good sleep. They tried sleeping in trees, but that always caused leaves to fall, and if they had to make a quick evacuation, then… plus, it was easy to fall out. They tried sleeping on top of bushes, but they flattened beneath the weight. So one day, they not to care about the marks, because their chasers would find them anyway. As Ruby was collecting dinner one day she heard two voices that reminded her of Olivia and Allegra, but one voice that she did not know at all. She crept up to where the sound was coming from, and saw three people sitting around the fire that they had left when their chasers almost found them yesterday. She realised that these must be the casers. There were two of about twelve that she didn’t recognise, and one that was smaller with her back to her who had a hoodie. She heard laughter, but then she heard some words that worried her: “What Lily”, “Allegra must be tired” and “Ruby is”. She gasped, and ran back to the camp. “The chasers knew that lily was with them, and they thought that Allegra was with them! What were they to do!

*meanwhile*

Olivia and Dex were looking around the camp. They had been telling jokes around the fire, when they thought about Ruby. Olivia had said “I wonder what Lily is doing. She is probably worried about the three of us. Suddenly, Allegra had fallen asleep. “Allegra must be tired. It’s  been a long day.” Then They heard a wolf. “Ruby is probably very scared.” Olivia said. Then, they heard a gasp. Olivia got up and looked around, and found footsteps ending at the door of a cave. But there was muddy marks along the floor. They would explore together. She ran back to the camp, and told Dex, and then Olivia picked up Allegra, and Dex carried their food and makeshift blankets. They arrived at the door of the cave, and tiptoed in, and then came out the other side to see…

*meanwhile*

Ruby ran back to the camp, and told them everything. They quickly packed up, but annoyingly, their worn bag decided that it would break at that moment in time. All their food and blankets came tumbling out, and fell down the hill. In the mad race to get the things, the three girls fell into a heap of giggles. Then they tried to untangle themselves, and they ran down the hill. The first thing that was recovered was the big blanket. Lily was carrying it up the hill when she heard something from the cave. She ran down the hill , and warned Ruby and Izzy that someone was coming. They hid behind bushes and trees, and waited to see you would come out…

*meanwhile*

Ruby was the first to jump out. “Allegra!” She cried. “And who are these kind people that helped your cousin?” Allegra teased. “That is Olivia and that is Dex. As soon as they stepped through the Portal to get here, they aged to about twelve.” “Ah.” Said Ruby. Then she brightened. “You can come out now!” She called. Lily stepped out, and ran to give the three of them a hug. Then, Izzy stepped out and gave Olivia and Allegra a hug, and then looked at Dex. “You must be Dex?” She asked, smiling. Dex nodded. “But usually I am smaller, and younger.” “How did you get here?” Asked Olivia. “Well, you probably know up till when Allegra and I were carried in different directions?”  Ruby Looked at Allegra for confirmation. She nodded so Ruby continued: “Well, I was carried for about two or three hours, when I tried to get some food out of my back pack…” As she spoke they handed around seaweed and berries, and Izzy and Lily taking over at times. “Then Lily heard you, and we all hid behind a tree or something.” She finished. Then, Lily and Izzy recounted their tale (With some little lies here and there, because Naturals cannot at any cost know about Supernatural’s) until they saw Ruby, and then Allegra recounted her tale, and finally, Olivia and Dex recounted their tale, and then they all laughed at the fact that they were looking for the other, but one group was also running away, then the happy group all snuggled beneath the blankets, and went to sleep.

*meanwhile*

Olivia woke first. She heard noises in the bush, and then quickly looked around. She saw feathers overhead, and a lion growled. She gasped. She quickly woke up her friends, and they got up, and Allegra went to look at the bushes. “Its all right!” She called. “It’s the Lions of Three Kinds!”  She walked them back to the camp, and they sat down around the newly lit fire. “We would like for you to help us out, and in return, we will help you. You will find we can do many things: We can hide you in the Clouds, Or Fly you through Worlds. Now, will you help us?”  “We will. We would like to make our request in advance, though.” Decided Ruby. “We would like you to Fly us between Worlds, if it isn’t much struggle?”  “Agreed.” Said the Chief. Now, we would like for you to help us. We are doing a show for the King Of All Lions, and would like you to give us an idea, and help us play it out.” “Oh, that is easy!” Cried Izzy. “Mamma Mia number 2!”  The Lions murmured in agreement. “Agreed.” Decided the Chief. “We leave now.” The Group packed up and left. After a month and three days, The King of All Lions showed up. “It is with great pride that we present to you the show that we have been working on for over a month, Mamma Mia 2, Here We Go Again!” Then, they began the show. First, there was to be a grand party, but it was all ruined due to storms. Next, Sophie (The main persons) dad came, with loads of  people, and the party was back on! Suddenly, an unexpected guest arrived. Months later, another not so unexpected person arrived. The End! “I hoped you liked it!” Cried the Chief. “I loved it!” Cried the King. Then, he was given a feast for the journey, and finally– finally- they were flown home. As soon as they arrived, they thanked the Chief, and his friends, and ran off to see their parents. Izzy was flown back home, Ali and Dann came to pick up Dex, and all was as it should be. There was only one problem: Allegra woke up one night, having had a nightmare about “a needle,” “her neck,”  “and danger”  So  Ruby and Lily called Izzy, to puzzle her with the question: What was in the Injection?

Dun Dun Dun!!!!!
