"Florence, Florence, Florence!" my twin brother, Felix called. "Guess what I just found?! You know that old fairy tale Hansel and Gretel? Well, I found the book outside on our front porch and it has a map to the witch, Beatrix's house! Plus, the map looks like our neighborhood!" he exclaimed, taking out a thick book. "Um, OK. What do you want me to do about it?" I asked, standing up and putting the book I was holding into my bookshelf. I pushed my glasses up to my eyebrows and crossed my arms against my chest, waiting for his answer. Felix is the type to believe everything he sees, that's why I'm the smart twin. Even if he's good in school, he goes ahead and believes literally everything he sees. Especially, if there are tabloids on the dining table. "Lets go! We might actually get something there!" he bubbled, excitedly. "Ha! No chance!" I sniggered. "You're just scared." Felix smirked. What immaturity? "You're not willing to go out on an adventure, because your scared of wild animals." "Am not. You need to get your head out of the book you're in!" I argued. “Me? In a book?” he scoffed. “You’re the one spending the whole summer break, dawn to dusk, reading 12 books a day! I know you’re just scared, so I’ll go by myself!” He turned around about to leave. I suddenly grabbed his sleeve and pulled him back around. I’ll go with him, because I don’t want him to get into any sort of trouble. After all, he is my brother, I have to take care of him.
“Fine. I’ll come!” I said, dramatically rolling my eyes, in a sarcastic way. “Really?” he beamed. He didn’t even wait for me to answer, he dragged me out of our house and to the outside of the dark woods. The woods were about a fifteen minute walk from our house. Our parents weren’t home, they had work and weren’t coming until late at night. For some reason, I really feel like I’m going to regret coming with him, in the first place. * We've walked in the forest for about one hour now. The map was really confusing, it had a big oval shape, that Felix and I had thought was a barrier, so we didn't go there. "Lets try it." Felix said. "Where the oval is." I nodded and followed him towards where the oval was. I heard faded singing from where we were and Felix and I exchanged confused glances. What were people doing in the middle of the forest? It had to be at least 6PM right now. Everyone would be at home, eating and getting ready to sleep. That would be Felix and I, but we were in a middle of something. We walked more to the oval and we were listening to the singing, as it was becoming surprisingly closer. And then, we froze. There was a giant egg, sitting on the tree branch
