Jay B. R. Wokky Ch. 22.4 — The Truth about the Donkey

Ch. 22.4 — Janine took her pack out of the cart and patted the donkey’s head. “Thank you for all your hard work.”
The donkey regarded her with large, sorrowful eyes. “You’re the first human I’ve met who could understand me. I used to be a boy. Is there any away you could get a message to my father? Terrance, brother to King Frances? Tell him Bernie is sorry. Tell him I want to come home.”
Janine hugged the donkey. “Of course, you poor dear. Who did this to you? An evil witch?”
The donkey brayed. “It was that dirty, rotten, no-good Prince Ezra. And if I ever see him again, I’m going to kick him in the face.”
The donkey stopped, shocked. “I mean, I’m so sorry. The fey told me they would give me a golden statue, bags of silver, and a banquet. Ezra knew the truth. he tried to stop me, but I wouldn’t listen. The fey sold Ezra a magic potion, and he used it on us boys. But it was all my fault. We didn’t treat him well.” He began to cry.
“Here now,” said Mr. Dumfries. “You’re upsetting my donkey.”
Janine looked up. “Sorry, but this is not a donkey. He’s really a human, changed by fey magic. He says he’s Bernard, Lord Terrance’s son.”
Mr. Dumfries gasped. “Oh, my. You mean, all this time my Bernie is really the lost son of Lord Terrance? There’s a reward for any information about him and the other missing royal children. Oh, my, I’d better go to the castle immediately. Come on, Bernie, we’ve got to get you home.”
He slapped the reins and the little donkey began to trot rapidly away.
“See you next time.” Janine waved goodbye to Mr. Dumfries and started up the narrow path that led to the dragon’s cave.
