The Turnip Trade: Chapter 5- By Jemmaa
Kiya: We’ve looked everywhere for Pascal, but he just doesn’t show up!
Rosie: Where could he be? Didn’t he promise us he would come to Bellwood today?
Kiya: Yes, he did! Let’s just have some coffee, I’m sure he’ll come later on!
*At The Roost*
Rosie and Kiya: Pascal!! And… Gracie?!
Pascal: Hey there, maaaan!
Gracie: You’re too late girls! I already gave my scallop to Pascal! Hahaha, I told you: “A Fashionista always gets what she wants!
Kiya: No, wait! How’d Gracie get a scallop?
Rosie: Who cares? Pascal we have another scallop!
Pascal: Two scallops? My, my. I have never been in a situation where two compete but only one can win… actually I’ll have both scallops! But I’ll only reward the cleverest.
Rosie: Kiya is clever! Kiya is very clever!
Gracie: Shut it, blue-cat!
Pascal: I shall test both of you!
Kiya: Great! I got an “A” in biology, and math, and Spanish, and English…
Gracie: WHAT? That’s not fear!
Pascal: True cleverness is not revealed in one grade, it’s revealed in the true emotions and in the tears of one.
Brewster: Alright, not that I was listening the hole time but should I have understood that?
Rosie: I didn’t understand it either… But anyway, Kiya is super clever, she’s a… a… she’s a clever-ista!
Brewster: Yeah… Neither did I understand that…
Pascal: Are you ready for the test?
Kiya and Gracie: Yes!
Pascal: Here it goes maaaan:
“The sea reveals only the treasures he stole from you when you are honest, and honestly is always the best policy… So you better be ready maaaan, here’s the question:
What has the sea stolen from you?
A) A golden Axe
B) A 100,000 bells
C) Nothing of those 2 things”
If you answer correctly you will be rewarded with your lost treasure. Alright maaaan??
Gracie: Really? That’s easy! Pascal, I lost my golden axe.
Kiya: Well, I guess the sea hasn’t stolen anything from me, so he doesn’t have to give anything back…
Pascal: Congrats maaan! You shall be rewarded with the golden axe!
Kiya: *sight* Well… at least we tried!
Gracie: YES! I knew it, I knew it! I always knew-
Pascal: No, no, no! The other maaan one, Kiya I believe is your name right?
Rosie: Yay Kiya! You did it!
Kiya: Really? Thank you so much Pascal!
Gracie: Ugh! This can’t be! *She leaves the café*
Pascal: Maaan, I’m going to the beach to dive into the sea and await a new adventure…
Rosie: We did it! We have the golden axe… Now we’ll have to check the acwwbook golden tools guide to find out what it does!
