The house came out of nowhere. It dropped right out of the sky and landed on the Wicked Witch in the East, killing her instantly.
What kind of magic this was, we didn’t know. We were all scared to come out and question the beautiful witch who stepped out of her house with a furry creature in her arms.
Our mayor was too scared to do anything at all, which was usual for him. So it was left to me, his assistant, to do what needed doing. I sent a bubble to the Good Witch of the North to come and question the newcomer. Glinda came immediately.
Our good Witch questioned this new witch, who claimed she wasn’t a witch but a girl from Kansas. The girl said her name was Dorothy, and her creature’s name was Dog Toto.
After Glinda discerned that the girl meant no harm to us, she called us to Thank the girl for killing the Wicked Witch of the East. Our mayor gave the girl Dorothy the key to our town, which I thought was premature. The Lollipop Guild awarded her a lollipop. And the children gave her flowers and cookies from their mamas. I wanted this giant girl out of our town before she broke anything else.
Finally, I was summoned to show her how to get to Oz to see the Wizard. I, of course, directed her to the Yellow Brick Road because everyone knows that the Red Brick Road leads to the Quadling Country. We all ran beside her to the edge of the village, glad that she had saved us but ecstatic that she was leaving.
