£Changeling Chronicles Ep. 6: Genie and Paige in That Order

“Good! You’re awake.”

“Where am I?”

“Aboard the Starship Changeling.”

“What is that?”

“Someone’s third wish. Changeling’s to be exact.”

“How did I get here?”

“… Well …”

“I remember you! You’re GeniYou were my imaginary friend.”

“I was your very real friend. Like this ship and everyone and everything aboard, I operate on a different plane of existence. Children see me. Adults don’t. I know how this sounds because of where we are, but it ain’t rocket science.”

“Okay. But how did I get here?”

“You were ten, and you decided that as a new ten-year-old, you should conquer your fear of the ball pit.”

“I went by myself.”

“All by yourself. You chased me away.”

“I’m sorry.”

“Anyway, you went in. You went all the way to the bottom … You never came out.

“Something else came out of that pit, and it looked like you so no news stories, search parties, etc. I stopped befriending children after that. I should have come with you.”

“I didn’t want you there. I chose to jump into the ball pit. …

“I can’t turn it off. I keep thinking about it.”

“Didn’t I used to sing you to sleep? You know… Before I disappeared and was replaced.”

“You did. Every night. I never actualy slept. Can’t. It just really relaxed me.”

“Okay. Let’s try that.

… … …

“Good. You’re relaxed. I’ll be right here when you wake up. We’ll figure this out.”

… … …

“One more question.””

“Sure.”

Is Changeling a child?”

“No.”

“But it was Changeling’s wish that got us here.”

“I don’t understand why. Changeling is different, I think. I’m here to figure out just how different is different.”

“I’ll help.”
