It was a typical day in middle earth. The 58 billion sheep were sheeping. Wemmas coffee still was spiffeling, and Gandalf the grey was drawing platypuses on the pavement outside with his trusty rain safe chalk. But where was Lorde? Her usual mumblings were coming from her corner of the room. Wemma looked and looked, but she couldn't see anyone there. A moment later Gandalf came in from his wizerdly works and shouted “YOU SHALL PASS... me a vanilla latte”. Wemma spun around 3 times and the coffee still did whatever it does. “By the way” Said Wemma in her most sly and nonchalant voice, “can you see Lorde in her corner?”. Gandalf Squinted, then shuffled, then went out the front door, then walked back in, then squinted again. “You know, I believe I cannot” he exclaimed. They gave each other a quizzical look then crab walked over to the Lorde corner.

“WITCHCRAFT” shouted Gandalf and made a cross symbol with his index fingers. Sure enough, Lordes voice was there, but her body had turned into a little plastic box. Wemma, who was not afraid of witches picked it up and examined it. Inside there were 2 little wheels turning slowly and a dark brown ribbon was looped around them. Wemma looked puzzled. Gandalf looked worried. The little box continued to pretend to be Lorde. “It belongs to Sony!, its got their name on it” Announced Wemma triumphantly.. “But why would Sony’s box have Lordes voice in it...” they both looked down and then looked up again in shock and spoke at the same time “SHES BEEN KIDNAPED”.. Gandalf burst into a ball of fire but went out again when he started crying “I miss Lorde” he waled out, “We’ll never ever see her again!”. “Calm down you old goat” Wemma reassured him, “We’ll just call up Sony and ask for her back”. Gandalf sniffed and nodded.

They walked over to the big dusty phone book, the first page read “Sheep 1, Sheep 2, Sheep 3” and the phone number of each. Wemma flipped through the pages. After a moment she flipped to the last page, it read “Sheep 58,000,000,000,000, Wemma, Gandalf, Lorde”... “Uhhhh” Wemma exclaimed. Just then the shop door swung open and Lorde walked in “Ohhhh, you found my walkman, thank you!” she chimed and grabbed the box out of Wemmas hands. “Yeah! Thats what we did, definitely” Stuttered a surprised Wemma, “We knew it was yours all along”. “Yeah, I was just singing for my friend and I forgot all about it!” “Thats ok, I forget stuff too.”. Gandalf looked deeply confused and was trembling. He jumped at Lorde and gave her a big wizards hug “How did you get out of that tiny box!!!”. Lorde looked confused, Wemma blushed, and Gandalfs coffee steamed.
