The Enchanted Anecdote of ‘Tyler’
A road trip is just the thing for me and my family. This story is about a boy who went on a road trip with his family.
On a joyful day, Tyler and his family were traveling to their favourite holiday spot, when suddenly, the car stopped near the Barceloneta beach.
“Oh my goodness,” said Mrs. Quinn.
“Why did the car stop?” asked Tyler.
“The car is running out of diesel, my dearies!” said Mr. Quinn.
“Oh! There is a fuel station nearby. Can we push the car to the station and fill up on fuel? Meanwhile, we can take a glance at the pristine blue water beach!“ Tyler suggested.
“Okay! I’ll think about it,” said Mr. Quinn.
They had a memorable time at the beach that evening. However, as they drove back home, a red coloured Ferrari Sports Car rammed into them- BOOOOM!
There was a loud sound. All the people nearby gathered around the spot where the two cars met and called for an ambulance. They were rushed to The City Hospital.
When Tyler woke up in his hospital bed, he was told that he had lost his memory during the car accident.
“Oh really?” Tyler asked, surprised.
“Yes,” the medical practitioner said. “Also dear, what I’m about to tell you is very sad and delicate; your parents passed away during the accident!”
“What?” Tyler cried. He was astonished and extremely sad. “Doctor, would I be able to get discharged today?” he asked.
“Yes. Where will you stay dear?” asked the doctor, a concerned look over his face.
“I don’t know yet,” Tyler answered.
“You’re welcome to stay with us,” said Ila.
Tyler looked up at the woman who had just spoken. “Who are you?” he asked, shocked at her offer. “Tyler, I am your best pal and this is your co-sister, Zoey,” said Ila, pointing to the girl standing next to her.
“Why would I believe you?“ asked Tyler.
“The three of us have a strong affinity and connection,“ Zoey replied.
“Oh, okay!” Tyler said, understanding the situation a little better.
“Don’t worry Tyler. You can stay with us,“ Zoey said.
“Oh really? Thank you so very much!“ Tyler replied.
“You forgot one basic rule Tyler!” Ila said, “There is no ‘thanks’ or ‘sorry’ when it comes to your friends,“ said Ila.
Zoey’s mum, Mrs .Smith, was on her way back from work. She picked up the kids from the hospital and took them home. Tyler was told to shift all his clothes, books, toys, etc… to Zoey’s place. He was all settled down in his new home, but he missed his parents a lot.
While he went to school, things were a little weird for Tyler. All the teachers tried their best to make Tyler comfortable, but he was always lost in his thoughts about the car accident.
Meanwhile, the English teacher gave the class an assignment; they had to write a short paragraph on their parents. This was a tough one for Tyler. He had to go back to his old apartment and get some of the pictures of his parents from the family photo albums.
While he searched for it, he found a magical cookbook under a dirty, dusty table. When he picked up the book, he saw many weird recipes-The ‘Shut’em Up’ Shortcake, ‘Go See Your Past’ Tacos, and many more weirdly named items.
He decided to take the book to Ila and Zoey. When he showed them the book, they were flabbergasted. They opened the book and found different kinds of recipes. They told him it wasn’t a useful book and put it away.
They tried to take Tyler to a sage to get him to regain his memory, but it didn’t work. Soon, they discovered that the sage was a con, and he had deceived them.
A few days passed, and the three friends decided to take a glance at the cookbook once again. Guess what? On the first page of the book, they found a recipe named “Memory Back Waffles”.
Ila, Zoey, and Tyler decided to give that recipe a try, to bring back Tyler’s memory. They made the waffles and added some maple syrup on it. Tyler took a bite, but he didn’t feel any different.
“Do you remember our water fight at school?” Ila asked.
“Of course I remember, “ Tyler answered.
“Oh wow! You got your memory back Tyler,“ Ila shouted with excitement.
“Yes!” Tyler exclaimed, realising he was getting his memory back.
They wanted to try the different recipes from the Magical Cookbook.
They decided to try the ‘Go See Your Past’ Tacos next. They made the tacos, and all of them took a bite at the same time. They all had different dreams, and when they came back from their past, Ila and Zoey had a face full of smiles. However, Tyler looked very suspicious.
“What did u see Tyler?“ asked Zoey.
“You guys are not going to believe it,” said Tyler.
“What happened Tyler?” asked Ila
“I went to the day of the car accident,“ Tyler told them, “and I saw that my uncle, Mr.David, was on the other side of the road. He was the one who crashed into our car!“
“Seriously?” Zoey asked with a look of dismay on her face.
“I also found out was that the car accident was not an ‘accident’. It was intentional,” said Tyler.
“Why would Mr.David do that to you all?“ asked Zoey.
” Zoey, let’s tell your mom! Maybe she can help?“ Tyler suggested.
Zoey’s mum was making them dinner in the kitchen. She saw the kids come in with expressions of confusion on their faces.
“Hello children. What has happened to all of your faces? Why does everyone look so suspicious?” asked Mrs. Smith.
“Mom, we found a magical cookbook at Tyler’s place, with very weird recipes. We thought of ignoring it in the beginning, but after a few days, we took a glance through the book. We found a recipe that got Tyler’s memory back!“ said Zoey.
“Oh really?“ said Mrs. Smith, amazed at what she had heard.
“Mom,” Zoey continued, “we also tried a recipe which took us to the past! We found out that Tyler’s uncle, Mr. David, had created the accident on purpose!“
“Dear, I know you all think magic works, but that’s not how it is in the real world,” said Mrs. Smith.
“No Mom! We still have one bite of the tacos. Try it!“ said Zoey. They went into their room and brought the tacos to Mrs. Smith.
“Here you go, Mrs. Smith,“ said Ila. Mrs. Smith took a bite and all of a sudden, she fell flat on the couch.
“Mom? MOM!” Zoey yelled, worried about what happened to her mother.
“I am alright!” said Mrs. Smith, waking up. “It actually worked! I really did go back to my past. This book is magical! Let’s go and file a complaint about Mr. David,” said Mrs .Smith.
Mrs. Smith described the entire incident to Mr. Alan Drew, the main constable at the police department.
“Okay! I see,” Mr. Alan said, “I will have someone check on Mr. David Quinn immediately”.
Soon, the team found out Mr. David was flying to Australia with some important documents.
“You are arrested, Mr. David Quinn!” Mr. Drew yelled, catching him red-handed at the airport.
“But, what have I done?” asked David, trying to look innocent.
“Don’t pretend to be so innocent, Mr. David,” Mr. Alan replied.
Mr. David ran towards the exit door, but unfortunately for him, the cops caught him just before he could leave.
“Thank you so much, Mrs. Smith!“ said Mr. Alan. “You helped us lay hold of a murderer!”
Tyler was happy that he found out who killed his parents, but unfortunately, the murderer was his loving uncle.
Now, he was unhappy and in deep despair, because he had lost his parents at the age of 13. He thought he would never get that kind of warmth and love in his life, until he realised he had his two best friends- Ila and Zoey.
All three of them were very happy, and used the Magical Cookbook only in times of need.
