Chapter 9 of the book Fantasy Eye
In which Alexa and Holly finally arrive.
"We arrive. FINALLY!!!!!" by Anne-Marie brison
Alexia Keene is a girl who discovers that humans aren't the only occupants in the world

I really hated it when Holly said that. According to her, 'we're almost there, actually meant a half hour more of stumbling through thistle bushes and briars, tripping over roots, and squinting in the glaring light of the hot setting sun slanting through the thick foliage overhead. "We're nearly there." Panted Holly. " I believe you said that about half an hour ago!" I returned crossly. "Oh." Said Holly, blushing. Her strawberry red face turning a deep scarlet. " We really are almost there this time." She said.

Twenty minutes later, we emerged from the shadowy woods and stepped out into a vast clearing speckled with rainbow colored building that each sent off waves of rosy light. The lush green grass was bathed in sheets of rose and amethyst. All around, the ring of trees standing just beyond the clearing seemed more greener, more cleaner.
Ha!! Well would you look at that. Here I am, describing the beautiful scenery by memory, when, at the time, all I could think of was, 'WOW, WOW, WOW!!' Yeah. So anyway, Holly and I tramped across the grassy clearing, heading towards a giant building that shimmered like a mirage. As we came closer, the shimmering building solidified into solid red brick crawling with shimmering green ivy. A giant oak door sprang into view as Holly and I stepped up gray stone steps choked with golden dandelions peaking their golden heads through the cracks. And then, Holly said her favorite line. "Come on," she gestured toward a smaller door next to the giant oak door.
Holly placed her hairy hand on the door and waited, a few seconds later, a flash of aqua blue blazed beneath her paw. The door swung inward silently, revealing a vast hall of sunset colors, red, gold, and violet. Lush copper and burnished orange, soft blue and hazy yellow. " Wow!!" I gasped, following Holly through the door and across the brightly lit hall. The beautiful hall went about thirty more feet, then branched off to the right. A golden door shooting of brilliant pools of light leaped into view. Holly grinned, " Wait till you see her!" She smiled. Placing a hand on the door handle. " What? Who?" I asked. Instead of answering, Holly pushed the door open. A sheet of light fell over us, beautiful music, of the kind I had never heard before, drifted over my ears. Holly and I stepped into the room, squinting in the brilliant light. Just as suddenly as it started, the light faded, reavling a golden throne on which sat the most beautiful woman I had ever seen.

The book continues with The Fairy Queen. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
