The Mystic Princesses and the Missing Turkey Part 2

The Original Thanksgiving

The Mystic Princesses and the Missing Turkey Part 2The Mystic Princesses awoke to find themselves lying in a cornfield. “Where are we?” Coral asked the others. The last thing she remembered was twisting the crown of the watch that Chronos, the God of Time, had given to her.

“The watch must have made us fall asleep while we were transported back in time,” Coral said. “Now that’s the way to travel.”

Catie, who is the Goddess Iris’ daughter said, “Hey! I like traveling on my rainbows.”

“Yes, it is fun when you turn us into birds, and we fly to the top of the rainbows and slide down,” Harmonie said trying to make Catie feel better.

“I don’t know, but I think we might be at the original Thanksgiving. Look over there,” Breanna said.

The Mystic Princesses looked toward the direction Breanna gestured and gasped. They saw deer, corn, and shellfish laid across wooden tables. It seemed that the settlers and Indians were having a feast.

“Look at our clothes!” Janna said. “We are dressed like the early settlers over there.” The girls noticed that the settlers’ clothes were brightly colored and that the men did not have buckles on their shoes.

Stories Change Over Time

“We were only supposed to go back one day and find our turkey,” Catie said. “I wonder why we are here. Nearly everything we’ve been taught is a lie.”

“I don’t think our history books meant to lie to us,” Janna said. “But perhaps we can see how stories change as they get told over time, depending on the storyteller’s beliefs and the records that are available at the time.”

“Wow, that’s a lot to think about. At least they have turkey,” Breanna said.

“Well, Janna’s mom is Mother Nature, so she was probably watching over the first Thanksgiving,” Coral said.

“Yes, my mom has told me all of this before. But no one wanted to hear it because it went against everything they’d been taught.”

“Perhaps we should do our own research and check the source in the future before we believe everything we are told,” Harmonie added.

“That certainly applies to information we read on the internet,” Catie said.

“Our turkey isn’t here. Let’s try again,” Coral said winding the crown of the time travel watch. “I hope we get our normal clothes back when we go home.”

The princesses laid down to get ready for their next adventure because they didn’t want to fall when the time travel watch made them sleep again.

The Mystic Princesses and the Ransom Note

The circular path of footprints in PJ’s carpet showed she’d been pacing the floor the last two hours. Where were the Mystic Princesses? They hadn’t come home from school nor had the police found them. She heard the sound of the postman dropping her mail through the slot and ran to the front door. She quickly scanned the postcard, noting its Jester City, Texas postmark. PJ immediately picked up the phone even though the note said she shouldn’t call the police. Next, she called the princesses’ parents, Eros and Athena.

How will PJ find the missing Mystic Princesses?

The Mystic Princesses and the Black Halloween Cats

The Mystic Princesses and the Black Halloween Cats“What did you do at school today?” PJ asked the Mystic Princesses while they ate their after school snack of bananas, peanut butter, crackers and milk so cold it would cause brain freeze if they drank it too quickly.

“One our friends brought her cat today for show and tell,” Catie answered before taking another bite of her banana.

The girls told PJ that the cat’s name was Magic because it was black and their friend found it right after Halloween the prior year.
