Aaaargh! cried Van, pain suddenly wracking his body.
His agonized outburst led Odette, Dallin, Logan, and his mother to rush to his side. Where does it hurt, sweetie? inquired Mrs. Cooper.
My backmy back Van moaned through gritted teeth.
The duck woman quickly laid her hands over Vans hunched back, hoping to locate the cause of his pain. To her astonishment and terror, the flesh was swelling at an alarming rate near his shoulder blades. Call 911! Mrs. Cooper shouted to her other children.
It hurts, said Van, gripping the unicorn horn as if it were a bullet between his teeth. I wish it would stop!
Mrs. Cooper felt something soft, almost like a pair of down pillows, underneath her sons shirtand then the swelling began to subside. Van let out a gasp of relief.
I-Im okay, he said to Odette, who had picked up the phone. D-dont call an ambulance.
Ive never seen anything like that happen to you before, said Mrs. Cooper as she watched the twin lumps on Vans back disappear. Im taking you to the emergency room right now.
Wed like to get our horn back first, said Francine.
With Gretas horn in her rear pocket, she accompanied Arthur to the sidewalk. Stupid Van, she grumbled. Now theres only one wish left.
I wish I could see without glasses, said Arthur.
Youre lucky you can see at all, Francine chided him.
Then she and Arthur exchanged looks of sudden realization. Marina! they exclaimed in unison.Theres no such thing as magic, insisted the blind rabbit girl.
Humor me, said Francine as she tried to force the unicorn horn into Marinas hands.
Humor yourself, the acerbic girl retorted. This is some kind of Halloween prank, and Im not falling for it.
Marinas stubborn refusal to take the horn prompted Arthur and Francine to beat a retreat from the Messersmith home.
Prunella, seated next to Marina on the couch, clicked the Mute button on the TV remote. Hoprah Linseeds voice became audible again.
Marina turned to her friend. I didnt mean it when I said theres no such thing as magic, she said apologetically.
I forgive you, said Prunella glibly.
Not long afterward, another visitor entered through the screen doorApril Murphy, still clad in the same green dress she had worn at Springfield Tech.
Hi, April, Prunella greeted her. Or should I call you Sue Ellen?
That ship has sailed, was Aprils response.
She stood directly in front of the rat girl, and they locked eyes.
I want to be with my real parents, she stated. I dont care if it means never seeing Earth again.
Huh? said Prunella.
You know where I live, April went on. Come and get me.
