Where did it come from?

One day, things change for Ivy when shes chased by bunch of bullies. Fleeing into the forest she had seen the fairy in not long ago, she runs and tumbles, falling down. But where is Ivy now? The path she came from is too steep to return home byhow will she get home? Walking further, she soon sees an opening. Ivy is relieved and believes that it is the town near her home and walks to the opening, hoping that she can use someones telephone to call her parents and let them know what happened.

Ivys heart plummets when she finds that the opening does not lead to a town, but in fact is some place Ivy had never seen before.
