Mr. Wogglebug went up the steps and the very moment he was at the top he was surrounded in a white light that somehow seemed to be pulling at him from everywhere. Then he felt as if giant but very light hands picked him up and then he was surrounded by the white light and then the sensation of being picked up ended and he felt as if he were weightless and falling down through some space tunnel.

Then all of a sudden he dropped to the floor with a loud THUD. And when he looked up he found himself standing in a bedroom he had never seen before. Then he heard the door open and in walked Sylvie. She was holding a cellphone in her hand. She looked surprised but delighted to see him.

"Mr. Wogglebug!" she exclaimed running towards him. "What are you doing in my room?"

"I'm afraid I don't know," he said. "And that is the problem."

Sylvie handed him the cellphone. "Here. There is some man asking for you. He said I would find you here."

Mr. Wogglebug took the phone with apprehension. And when he held it to his left antennae he heard Cobo Mystis' voice on the other end say,

"Hello, Mr. Wogglebug. I am very sorry but you being in Sylvie's room has messed up the quest. And I'm afraid you've lost and won't get a present to give to Sylvie. Goodbye." And then the line went dead.

Mr. Wogglebug stood still and tears came to his. Sylvie noticed and asked with concern, "What's wrong, Mr. Wogglebug?"

"Oh my dear Sylvie," he said beginning to cry. "I was on a quest the great Cobo Mystis put me on because I wanted to be able to win you one of his presents for your birthday. But that was him just now on the phone and he said because I am here I have lost. I am so sorry!"

He buried his face in his hands and sobbed. Sylvie wrapped her arms around his midsection and hugged him tightly.

"It's alright," she assured him. "You've already given me the best present ever by giving me your friendship."
