As we escaped, we turned up the radio because Don't Stop Believing came on and made me shimmy. Everything was extremely smooth sailing until an elephant appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while Hector stayed on the black stallion, I got thrown onto my side in the woods.
I couldn't get up, and felt peculiar as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a QUACK among the leaves, and felt surprise. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of mauve hair and turquoise eyes.
When I woke up again, I was on a bean bag. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. There was a puppy and monkey in the room, along with a pickle and root beer. The door suddenly opened to reveal Po, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he giggled and said, "Don't be shy. It's okay."
He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about writing, singing, and Netflix binging and realized we had a ton in common! I thought he was clammy and couldn't help feeling a little swoony.
Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came Daniel. "Don't let him charm you away, my love!" he yelled, running at Po. They each had ladles in their hands and began to fight. "Stop!" I yelled, feeling so thrilled. They didn't listen to me. Before I could intervene, Po fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
"What was that?" I asked, staring at the empty space. Daniel dropped his weapon, and came over to me. "Magic, but you are safe now, boo." He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.
Just as Your Song started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my adventurous luck. Why had it only been just a dream?
