“It all worked out. They saved the boy and Mother Blue said I’d passed some challenge or something like that.”
“She talked about the challenge?”
“Yes! I think when I saved Olivia, it was the first challenge. The second challenge was getting the money back for all those kids and their moms from Mr. Vicker. Fighting the Zorin and helping save Pegasus was the third. Mother Blue said something about a prophecy. Everyone in Fiori seemed really excited.”
“I don’t know what to say, Elle.”
“I don’t have a clue what it all means. Mother Blue wanted to have a party, but I told her I had to get back to the fair. She didn’t know about JJ’s kidnapping until then. What’s a prophecy?” It felt so good to finally be able to talk to someone who had experience in these things.
“That’s not an easy question, Elle. A prophecy is when a message has been communicated to someone through divine inspiration. Then that message is communicated to other people, like Mother Blue. It’s a revelation of events that haven’t happened yet.”
“What does that have to do with me?”
“Well, there was a prophet in Fiori. He wrote down a message that said a child of Earth would fulfill three challenges while very young. I think it was about a child in their eleventh year, but I’m sorry to say I didn’t pay very close attention when I heard about it all those years ago. I was too wrapped up in all the wonders of Fiori to take the time I should have to ask more questions.” Grandma Statler looked up at the stars as if there might be answers there. “What did she tell you about the challenges, exactly?”
“There wasn’t any time to tell me anything. But she did say something to Amadeus about how he’d need to spend some time at the cave where this prophecy is recorded.”
“Perhaps when this is all over, we can visit with Mother Blue and get some of our questions answered.”
“I’d like that,” Elle said.
