They flew for about ten minutes more, before finally, he stopped. "Oh, thank god, I thought that-"
"Hush!" He whispered.
She glared at him. "Excuse me? I don't know who you think are Houdini, but you don't tell me to-" she was cut off by him slamming his hand over her mouth.
Her glare harshened. Finally, he moved his hand away. "Who's that?"
She looked at him questionably. "What?"
"You called me the wrong name, I'm Peter-"
"Yea, I know who you are."
"Then who's Houdini?"
She sighed and rubbed her temples. "No one. Now, why did you tell me to be quiet?"
"I saw one of the Indians."
"Wait, aren't they on your side?"
He grinned at her. "Of course! We're just playing a game!"
She rolled her eyes. "Oh! How wonderful!" She feigned happiness, her voice dripping with sarcasm.
His grin grew. "You can play to if you want."
"You've obviously never heard of sarcasm."
He smiled. "Come on, we're almost at the hideout now."
"How exciting." She replied dryly.
He stopped flying and smirked at her. "Why are you looking at me like that?"
He smiled and grabbed her arms, so that now she dangling in midair. He let go, and she screamed. She fell through a hole and landed on a mattress of some sorts. Peter flew in behind her and grinned at her. "Lost boys!"
Six boys came running in the room. Each of them wore an animal outfit. The tallest one came forward, he was wearing a fox outfit. "I'm-"
"I know who you are." She pointed at the one in the skunk outfit. "Tootles." She pointed at the one in the bear outfit. "Cubby." She pointed at the twins who wore the raccoon outfits. "The Twins." She pointed at the one in the rabbit suit. "Nibs." She pointed at the one in the fox outfit. "And finally, Slightly."
They all looked at her, completely dumbfounded. "B-but how did-"
"I saw the movie." She replied.
"What's a movie?" Questioned Cubby.
She sighed. "Nothing."
"Uh..hey! I don't even know your name." Stated Peter.
"It's Ellie." She replied.
He smiled and nodded. "Wanna play treasure hunt?"
She shook her head. "No thanks."
"You wanna go see the mermaids?" Asked one of the Twins.
"Thanks, but no thanks."
"Then what do you wanna do?" Questioned Slightly.
Peter answered for her. "Let me guess, go home?" He asked.
She opened her mouth to answer, thinking of her mother, father and uncle. She shivered at another thought and then closed her mouth. She shook her head. "No."
Peter sighed. "Fine, I'll go get Tink so she can- wait, did you say no?"
Ellie nodded. "I don't wanna go home, not ever again."
"Are you serious?" He asked.
She nodded again.
If his smile were to get any bigger, she's sure it would fall off. "That's great! You can stay here forever!"
She smiled slightly. "I guess so."
"We'll do all kinds of stuff!"
"We can fight the pirates!" Yelled Slightly.
"Dance with the Indians!" Chimed in Nibs.
"She could tell us stories!" Suggested Cubby.
"And be our mother!" Yelled The Twins
They all turned and looked at her. "Will you tell us a story?"
"Uh..I don't really know any stories."
"Why don't you tell them one about me?" Suggested Peter. He was floating around the room with his flute.
She looked at him and crossed her arms. "Oh, you mean like the one where Hook finally beats you?"
He nodded. "Yea, like- hey! That's not funny." He had fallen out of the air in shock and she laughed.
"Really? Cause it's pretty funny to me." She stated.
He glared at her, but it faded and he grinned. "I've got an idea!"
"The fairies are having a gathering tonight, we should go!"
She scoffed. "Fairies? Ok, I get that I'm probably unconscious right now, but that's taking it a step to far. I don't believe in-" she was cut off him covering her mouth with hand.
"Don't say that! Every time you say that a fairy drops dead."
He moved his hand away and she sighed. "Fine, but I'm not going to the stupid gathering."
Peter rolled his eyes at her. "Do you like to have any fun?"
She glared at him. "I have fun all the time!"
"Yea? What do you do?"
"I do all sorts of things! I read books-" he made a 'humphing' noise. "What?"
"Reading is boring."
"It is not! There are lots of interesting books!"
"Who?" Questioned Slightly.
She turned and looked at him. "Harry Potter. He's a wizard." She looked back in Peter's direction. "A very brave wizard."
"Not as brave as me."
She smirked at him. "You're right, he was braver."
"He is not! I'll fight him just to prove it!"
She rolled her eyes and turned to face him fully. "He's fiction, as in not real." She poked his chest and he took a step backwards. "Just." She poked him again, and he took another step back. "Like." Another poke, another step back. "You." She got closer to him, but something grabbed onto her braided ponytail and yanked, hard.
She whipped around and came face to face with a ball of light that sounded like bells as it yelled at her. "Oh, let me guess, you're Tinkerbell."
Tinkerbell chimed at her some more and she glared. "You're a brat. Has anyone ever told you that? In fact, I bet if you looked it up in the dictionary, there would be a picture of you. You can keep throwing insults at me in your stupid bell language, but you know what? I don't care! It's probably nothing I haven't heard before. I don't want to be here, I don't want to be around all of you, and I don't want to play any stupid games!" And with that, she left the hideout, leaving everyone, including Tinkerbell, speechless.
Peter looked around at them all, not sure what to say. "Are you sure she's not a pirate? She sure does act like one." Stated Cubby.
Peter glared at him and he shrunk back. "Don't be stupid, girls can't be pirates." Stated Nibs.
"Stupid island, stupid boys, stupid fairies, stupid me!" Screamed Ellie.
"I hate it here!" She threw a rock at s tree, and it bounced off into the dirt. She took a breath and rubbed her temples. "Breathe Ellie, it's fine. Everything is fine." She took another breath and sat on a rock.
"I don't want go home, so this is my only option. I'll just have to make the most of it." She took another breath and laid back on the rock. "Mother." She scoffed. "Do they honestly think I look like a mother?"
"You look ok to me." She gasped and fell of the rock. She peaked out from behind the rock and saw Peter. "Oh, it's only you. What do you want?"
He smiled and walked closer to her. "We're going somewhere." He held out his hand for her take.
"Uh, how about no?"
He shrugged. "Suit yourself. I gave you the option of choice, just remember that."
She nodded and turned the opposite direction. "Thank you. Wait, option of choice? What's that supposed to mean?" She turned back and he was gone. "Huh." She screamed as she was lifted into the air. "Peter!"
He laughed and flipped her onto his back. "Just relax, we'll be there in a flash!"
She glared at the back of his neck, but having the option to either fall off, or grab onto him, she reluctantly wrapped her arms his neck. She was so going to kill him when they landed.
