CHAPTER FIVE HUNDRED and NINETY-TWO
“I have to go potty,” Paddie whispered to Katy.
Katy nodded. She had to go potty too. They were trapped in a small compartment by mean fairies in the crypt of an ancient church on the Isle of Man. The mean fairies were actually terrifying skeletons that wanted to take Paddie’s sword, the Sword of Truth, away from him. Katy had been given a big knife, that was a sword for a small child, called the “Vanquisher.” Now, the fairies wanted that blade too!
Katy and Paddie had retreated into this box to rest for a while. Paddie had hoped that Katy would come up with a plan, but Katy was fresh out of great ideas.
She was scared that she’d never see her Mommy and Daddy and brothers again. She didn’t want Paddie to know that she was scared so she didn’t say anything.
Now, Paddie had to go potty.
When they were the last time, Paddie had worn a diaper because he’d been taken from his bed. Going potty wasn’t a problem, last time. This time, they were older and weren’t wearing diapers.
“Ask the…” Paddie gestured to the ancient adult-sized long knife in Katy’s hands.
“Where can Paddie go potty?” Katy asked.
“And not get caught by the scary fairy bones?” Paddie asked.
Katy glanced at Paddie and then nodded. A light appeared on the wall at their feet. They were lying in a rectangular box, possibly a coffin or a storage container. They were small children but the space was tight. Katy pushed with her feet.
The small end of the rectangular box opened to a passage way that was not on the map that hung above Paddie’s bed. From where they lay, they could see that the entire passageway was made out of crystal. It was a circular tunnel with a slight squared place for people to walk.
Paddie skootched his way out of the box and then helped Katy down.
“You have the sword?” Katy asked.
“Do you have…” Paddie started to ask. Seeing a dot on the ground in front of them. “Oh.”
