"Worms!" Quaraun gasped.
Unicorn looked to see what Quaraun was looking at.
A squirming knot of worms.
Quaraun stared at the worms, then turned and ran out of the room. Unicorn followed after him and found the Elf vomiting his guts out.
"Hetushki! Oho! Was it the worms or the opium did that to ya?" Unicorn asked as he watched the Elf puke.
"Both," Quaraun gasped as he staggered back to the building. "I don't like this place."
"Well, it what we gots." Unicorn's protective hand pulled Quaraun beside him, then pressed the Elf closer. "Ya is so frail of late."
"I'm always frail," Quaraun whimpered. "I'm a weak, cowardly, frail, runt. The Moon Elves were right. I'm pitiful and worthless."
"Fudger Fluffer Nutters. Ya is no worthless. Pitiful, maybe, but never worthless."
"I don't like it here."
"Well dick brains. Ya wants to keep walking, th'ough dense thunder storm filled forest at night?"
"No. I just wish we weren't alone in this place."
Just then there was a crackling zap across the ceiling, followed by flashes of lightening blue streaks dancing in the air, followed by a great black hole opening up and a half-Elf, falling, flailing, screaming as he dropped out of the sky and landed on the floor in front of them. The instant he hit the ground, the black hole closed up and vanished as if it had never been there.
"Did ya just grant yarself a wish?" Unicorn asked Quaraun as he watched the whole in the ceiling disappear.
"I don't know," Quaraun moaned. "My head hurts."
The Moon Elf wizard sat on the ground clutching his head.
"Owwww," the yellow haired Sun Elf moaned as he also held on to his head as if warding off a headache.
"Fuu-uuuck! What was that?" Unicorn stood up and stared at the spot where the hole had been.
GhoulSpawn stood up to answer Unicorn, but immediately fell back down.
"GhoulSpawn's here," Unicorn said as helped Quaraun back up.
"I can see that. Where the hell did he come from."
"I tinks ya just wished him here."
"Why would I do that?"
"Ya tell me. Ya dids it."
"I didn't mean to."
"Oh well, moving on.. don't mind me as I eat de jit..."
"You are not gonna eat him!"
"What the hell? Why not?"
"Because I said so."
Unicorn stood over GhoulSpawn.
"Where did ya come from?!"
Unicorn stared down at the half-Elf sprawled on the floor in front of him.
"Uhm... I... " GhoulSpawn struggled to find words.
"Are you alright," Quaraun asked GhoulSpawn as he helped the dazed Sun Elf to his feet.
"How did that happen?" GhoulSpawn asked as he pushed away from Quaraun and stood with his head tipped back, staring up at the spot in the ceiling where he had just fallen out of.
"I'm not sure"
"Where am I?"
"We don't seem to know where we are."
The half Sun Elf turned to Quaraun and asked again: "Where am I?"
"I don't know," Quaraun said, shrugging his shoulders. "We aren't sure where we are. Which I already said. We were running away from a giant turtle and ended up here."
"Giant tur... What?"
"I've had a bad day."
"How did I get here?"
"I don't know," Quaraun said, "Though I suspect I just wished you here."
"Wished me here?"
"I'm a wish granting wizard."
"I thought you were a Necromancer."
"No. I'm a Di'Jinn. I grant wishes. Even my own. Especially when I'm not expecting to."
"I was... and now I'm... what? ... how...." the dazed and confused half-Elf spun around several times looking at everything and everyone in the room, through his very wide, very frightened lime yellow green eyes. "I didn't... I wasn't... This shouldn't have happened! It's completely unexpected."
"I always expect the unexpected," Quaraun said. "I'm a DiJinn. You never get what wish for. You always get a version of the wish that you least expect. And so I expect nothing."
Unicorn suddenly slapped Quaraun for no reason.
"Hey! What was that for?"
"Ya was no expecting it."
Quaraun was about to punch Unicorn, but the Phooka wagged a finger in the Elf's face.
"Uh-uh-uh. I be expecting t'at. I punch harder un faster. Ya'll be on ground wid bloody nose fore ya get a swing in."
Quaraun put his hand back down,
"Why do you keep doing this to me?"
"I is a Faerie. This what we do."
"And he does this frequently?" ZooLock asked Quaraun, looking at Unicorn.
"Yes. Every damned hour of every damned day, all week long, every month of every year. Faeries are the most annoying creatures there are."
