Sophie popped out of space, stumbling as the green–green? her mind shrieked–clawed hand let go of her. Expecting to be drowning, she gasped like a landed fish.
“Here now,” an upper-class, motherly voice said, “its okay. Just take a deep breath.”
Sophie turned to look at the voice. Too astonished to be afraid, she stared. The voice belonged to a green scaly creature.
“You have questions, I’m sure,” it said. “It was the crystal, you see. Only special–“
It’s head popped up, then it reached it’s arm into nothing, and pulled out a boy.
“And here’s another,” it said amiably.
“George? George, what are you doing here?” Sophie exclaimed as she recognized her classmate. “What has George to do with it? He can’t even speak!”
“Can,” he muttered as he looked around. Sophie realized he was taking it better than her and stiffened her spine.
“Well, come along children, everything will be explained when you get to the school,” the creature said happily as it turned towards the large ramshackle building behind it. “We’ll be just in time for lunch.”
