“Oh, it is,” Mother Blue said. “Children hold the key to the future for both dimensions, and we need to make sure they grow with love and compassion as the primary forces in their lives. Without that, we will not survive.”
“Are you an angel?”
“What an interesting question. We operate much like you visualize a guardian angel would. Fiori is a dimension in time and space which operates parallel to your own universe. From the beginning of time, we have traveled to your world through reflective portals to protect and love human children.”
“What’s a reflective portal?”
Jimmy and Tyler nibbled on butter biscuits while Mother Blue described travel through the portals, as well as wish travel. When guides wished themselves someplace, she explained, it had to be to a location, not to a person. Elle had forgotten about location, and her mistake in wishing herself to Amadeus landed them in the middle of the fight with the Zorin.
He wouldn’t have believed any of this if he weren’t standing right here in this huge castle. He shook his head, hoping he’d wake up if it was all a dream.
“So that’s how I got here? Elle wished me through the reflection in the tack box?”
“Yes. Before today, the only humans who ever entered Fiori were guides. I’m rather at a loss as to how to handle this mix-up, but the key to our continued success is that no one in your world is aware we exist except our chosen guides and children under eight. Our survival and ability to protect children depends upon that security.”
“I promise I won’t tell anyone.” Jimmy shuddered at the thought that he might never again be allowed to go back home. He certainly didn’t want to live in Fiori for the rest of his life. It was nice, but he’d miss his friends too much. Heck, he’d even miss his obnoxious bully of a brother and the parents who referred to him as an accident. They were mean, but he still loved all of them and hoped they would learn to be a happy family one day.
