THE MAGIC FAIRY PORTAL
By Róisín Brennan
Once upon a time there were two brave girls called Roisin and Aoibh.
"Lets go and get a picture of a rare cactus!" said Aoibh.
So they set off to a mysterious desert. But then, a large cheetah jumped out at them.
"Arrrggh!" said Roisin and Aoibh together. They jumped in fright, but jumped so high they
jumped into a portal! They opened their eyes.
"Look! Fairies!" said Roisin.

"Thanks!" said the girls and started to eat the cakes. But next minute they flew up into the
"Ahhh She tricked us!" said Roisin.

"Ah - so thats it!" she said. "Aoibh - here!"
She threw Aoibh a candy cane.
"Phew" said Aoibh, as she too tumbled to the ground. "Oh, look at that poor fairy!"
One fairy was flying around, looking upset that she couldn't stop.
"Here!" said the girls, and threw her a candy cane. Down she came.
"Thanks!" said the fairy.
"Can we borrow your wand please?" asked Roisin.
"Yes, thank you for helping." said the fairy.
The girls used the wand to fly back through the portal to the desert.
"Look! The cactus!" said Aoibh.
They got a wonderful picture of the cactus and went home. But they always said afterward
you never know where you'd find a magic fairy portal.
