A Kingly Name

King Barf isn’t actually named King Barf. His real name is King Bartholomew Archibald Reginald Fife, a fine, kingly name—a name with a great destiny, of course. But I don’t care how handsome or powerful that name makes you. It’s a mouthful. So for short I call him King Barf, though I’d never say it out loud.

National Ice Cream Day

Today is National Ice Cream Day! Of course, we went right for a double-scoop of magic.

Jonah plopped a spoonful of Chocolate Orange Switcheroo into my glass. “Try this one.”

I took a small bite to start with. The ice cream melted against my tongue, sweet and fruity and smooth. Then came the switcheroo part a chocolate fudgy flavor that caused the corners of my jaws to tingle with happiness.

Citrus

Crazy good!

Flying Keys

Not for nothing, though, was Harry the youngest Seeker in a century. He had a knack for spotting things that other people didn’t. After a minute’s weaving about through the whirl of rainbow feathers, he noticed a large silver key that had a bent wing, as if it had already been caught and stuffed roughly into the keyhole.
