Oh, god, was he just irritating her all over now. It was obvious he knew the unavoidable dependence she had. Maybe she would hit him after he told her. Just a bit. That’d probably give her enough temporary satisfaction.
"Fine! Yes, now tell me da estupid directions already!" she shouted angrily.
"You just’a have’a to follow the yellow brick road~!"
He told her, gesturing with his wand to said road.
Though, after he told her that, another large, pink, bubble appeared around him, like how he had appeared.
"The munchkins will’a see you to the border of’a Munchkinland. Good’a luck!"
He called before both he and the bubble disappeared. Yeah. No chance to hit him now… But the time would definitely come eventually.
Obviously the munchkins were sort of scared of her, because they all stayed a few feet back, looking nervous. Though, they reminded her again, multiple times, to follow the yellow brick road.
"Follow the yellow brick road!"
The instruction rung out from all directions, as they nervously escorted her to the border of Munchkinland, just like Glinda had said they would. They waved goodbye, and a few words of thanks also sounded from the crowd of munchkins.
And now the adventure could really begin…
He was right. Which pissed her off the most. Wow, did she want to kill him right then. She didn’t need a weapon; she could just punch him out! But that probably wouldn’t a very smart mood on her part, being lost in some unknown land that she still didn’t even know the name of.
For some reason, the bird had still stayed with her at her feet with a dumb expression. Stupid. Would it go away? Probably not. It’d probably turn into one of those stupid animals you couldn’t get rid of.
"Fine!" she said, crossing her arms and turning her nose up. The last part did manage to catch her attention, however. "…And how is dat?"
Aha. He got her.
Her apparent interest managed to make him grin a bit wider. Though, the grin quickly turned into a knowing little smirk. He examined his nails nonchalantly.
”You would just have’a to talk to’a de wizard. The Wizard Of’a Oz. He can’a help’a you get home.”
He told her.
"Are’a you interested?"
He was probably going to tell her how to get there even if she wasn’t interested. He was going to send her on an adventure, dammit. Whether she wanted one or not.
"The directions to get’a to him are’a simple to follow~"
((sergio is still going to get his ass kicked when everyone finds out zoe could have gone home at any time using the slippers and he chose to leave that part out))
”WHAT’S WITH THOSE STUPID BRAIDS!” He yelled back at the girl. However before he could truly do anything Ser- Glinda came between him and her.
Narrowing his eye at the good witch he growled. Stupid glittery wench! ”OH I WILL BE PUNCHING SOMEBODY SOONER THEN YOU THINK!” The witch his grin grew maliciously. However he did back off, even if it only was for plot convenience.
Dramatically he shook his fist into the air. ”DON’T THINK YOU WILL GET RID OF ME THAT EASILY!” With his other arm he pointed at the girl. ‘'I'LL GET YOU MY PRETTY! AND YOUR LITTLE BIRD TOO!” And with that he seemed to throw something in front of him that made another big cloud of smoke. When it settled down the witch had disappeared in thin air.
"Dis is not even my bird!" she shouted, although too late. She didn’t want to be associated with this bird. “Dat was possibly da stupidest thing I have ever had da misfortune to witness.” Zoe turned back to the “good witch.” ”Who says that I want to be under chur ‘protection’? What makes chu think chu get protect me? Moron with da dress. And where am I? Usual pure contempt.
'Glinda' seemed quite pleased when the other witch took his dramatic exit. Before turning his attention back to Zoe, he focused on the munchkins, who were cowering on the ground.
”It is’a alright. He is’a gone.”
He announced. Again, all of them stood back up. Though, that was when Glinda’s attention was again grabbed by the girl.
”Eh, not’a to be rude, but it is a robe. Not a dress”
He began slowly, again becoming nervous of her.
"Well, I am’a probably the best you can’a do at’a de moment… See, you don’t’a have any weapons on you. All’a you have is’a that bird. So, to put it simply, you need’a me."
He explained, still smiling.
"As’a for where’a you are, you are in’a de land of Oz. Munchkinland to be precise."
Then he winked.
"Now, I am assuming you are a far aways from’a your home, si?"
He inquired, leaning his weight against his wand as he spoke, slowly raising one eyebrow.
"You wanna to get back? I can’a help’a you."
”EXCUSE YOU?! WHAT’S WRONG WITH WEARING A BLACK COAT AND PANTS! IT’S BLACK NOBODY CAN EVER GO WRONG WITH THAT!” He yelled back at her. Who did she even think she was, kids these days no freaking respect for their tyrannical witches.
”Well if you are not a witch then it won’t be that hard to get those slippers off you.” He stepped towards Zoe. ”They belonged to my brother and now they belong to me. And as ugly as they are they still have their uses…” He said vaguely. ”SO GIVE THEM TO ME BEFORE I WILL PUNCH YOU!”
"No one wears all black. And what with dat stupid hat?" she asked loudly. "I am not going chu give chu da shoes because I like them!"
Really, it was just because of the potential, value. They looked to be quite tacky. And because she pretty much only wore dark purple and black, her wardrobe was extremely limited.
"Chu will not get them from me either!" she continued to yell. "Because I will punch chu first!”
Okay. Enough violence. Time for GLINDA THE GOOD WITCH TO STEP IN. He gently pushed Zoe behind himself, stepping between the two.
"You have’a no power here! You will’a be punching no one!"
He wagged his finger at the other witch.
"This’a little girl is’a now under my protection. Now, BEGONE. Before someone’a drops a house on’a YOU."
He cried, pointing his wand in an accusational manner at the wicked witch of the West.
"You do not’a wanna to end up’a squished like’a your brother, si?"
She looked behind her to see what he was talking about. “My house—!” Yes, that was definitely her house, but how did it even get there? And… who was that beneath it? She would have guessed that it was that stupid villain with that stupid robot cosplay or whatever, but he would have never worn something like that… Then again, with what this kid was wearing…
She turned back to the kid and looked down at her own feet, seeing that annoyingly familiar bird, who simply gave a blank expression back to her, tilting his head and letting out that blue-footed booby noise.
She gritted her teeth and glared at the boy, about to make a threat in her heavy accent. ”I swear, I will kill chu or my name isn’t Bla—” She stopped the threat in mid sentence, however, looking down and seeing that she wasn’t wearing her super villain suit at all. Or even her regular gothic apparel.
Instead, she wore a dark purple country styled dress and her hair was up in two braids.
"—Zoe Aves," she finished quietly, before speaking again, back to being pissed off. "Dat is not even a human!" she yelled at him, pointing to Mr. Sprinkles. "It is not a witch! And chu really should not be calling other people witches when chu are wearing a dress like dat."
Again, he seemed a bit nervous when she spoke, holding his wand up in front of his chest as she began to threaten him. Though, he seemed to calm down when it was verified that she was not a witch at all… And neither was the bird. In fact, he began to smile.
That was when he turned around and began to talk to the bushes, and the plants, and anywhere else that could be a potential hiding place.
"It’s’a alright, everyone. She is’a not’a witch! She will not’a hurt’a you!"
He announced cheerily.
When it was announced to all the little people that they were in no danger (even if that was sort of a lie), they all began to peek out, and eventually came out of their hiding spots. God they were all dressed ridiculously… But, they seemed happy. Words of thanks and happiness rang out from all the munchkins.
"You’ve done it! You’ve killed the wicked witch!"
"How could we ever repay you?"
"She’s really, truly, dead!"
"Oh, thank you, thank you!"
The boy in the glittery outfit stood with a smile.
"The Witch of’a the East has’a tormented them’a for so long. You have’a become a heroine of’a sorts for’a the munchkins. They are’a very grateful."
Zoe wasn’t sure whether to laugh or just punch him. But considering her predicament of not being… wherever exactly she was— she just shook her head and scowled at the boy. He looked vaguely familiar, though she couldn’t quite place him.
"Who are chu and what are chu even talking about? And why are chu wearing dat?!"
He seemed a tad intimidated when she spoke, and took a very small, nervous, step backwards.
”I am’a Glinda the good’a witch… And’a, the munchkins. They’a tell me that a new witch dropped a house on’a the Wicked Witch of’a the East…!”
He exclaimed to her.
"There’s’a the house…!"
He gestured to the house, which was behind Zoe.
"And’a here’a you are!"
"And’a there’s all that’s’a left of’a the Wicked Witch..!"
He concluded finally, gesturing lastly to a pair of legs, smushed underneath the entirety of the house. All that was visible, were the legs which wore a pair of striped stockings and glittery red shoes, and what looked like a few robotic fingertips.
"So, if’a you are’a not’a de witch, then, is’a that’a de witch?"
He inquired innocently, gesturing with his magic wand to a blue footed booby near Zoe’s feet. How did the creature even get there…? Who knows… But it was there now. And it was probably going to stick with her for the rest of her ‘adventure’.
"Ugh…" Zoe Aves rubbed her head, sitting up slowly and opening her eyes. "What… what happened?" She vaguely recalled what had happened. Something about picking a fight with another villain as Black Cuervo and underestimating them and letting her guard down for a few seconds— long enough to take a brutal blow and fly backwards into a building and knocked unconscious.
But as she looked around, she saw no buildings or rubble or anything. In fact, her surroundings didn’t resemble Miracle City at all. Everything was… colorful. Too colorful. Already, she hated it.
"Where am I?" she asked in her usual bitter tone as she narrowed her scarlet eyes. “If this is someone’s idea of a sick joke, stop now or I’ll kill you.”
When the girl sat up and took notice of her surroundings, this was the time that Sergio—Er, GLINDA, the good witch, would be the one to appear. A lovely pink bubble appeared in front of Zoe, and after a short moment, it popped, and
Sergio GLINDA, landed gracefully on the ground. He smiled and approached, wearing a HORRIBLY glittery and pink outfit, crown included. He smiled cheerily at her.
"Are you a good witch, or a bad’a witch?"
He inquired simply, his
dress ROBE, crown, and magic wand, glittering obnoxiously as he moved.
