There once was a rainbow river, at the end of the river there is a magical island called, Unicorn Island ruled by the pixies. Everything on the island is magical, the water looks like glitter flowing through the crystal rocks and the trees and animals all speak and have their own lands. On this island there is an evil witch named Evalyn; her evil ways have made her age rapidly. Now she wears a mask to cover her wrinkled face. Evalyn has one mission in life, to be young forever, but she needs unicorn horns to create her youth potion. Evalyn has a sister named Lula, she is a good witch whose heart is full of love for all creatures and her best friend is a unicorn named Nina. Nina is purple with markings of stars and comets and she defends the island and all its creatures. Many of the creatures refer to her as the Defender Unicorn.
One day Lula and Nina are playing by the glitter river when the King and Queen pixies came to tell them that unicorns have started disappearing.
The King Pixie said, “We can’t find Kyle, or Klunker, we need you to investigate what is going on.”
“We are on it.” said Lula and Nina.
First, they go to Fox Forest to look for clues. They ask the leader of the foxes Sly, some questions.
“Has anyone seen anything suspicious recently.” asked Nina. Sly replied stating he had seen a weird snake slither by.
Next on their journey they head to Bunny Burrow to find more clues. There they ask Heidi, the leader of the bunnies, if her and the other bunnies had noticed anything strange. Heidi said she saw the tracks of two unicorns, and a strange snake creature go by. “Hmm, we should go back home and evaluate our clues.” Nina said.
Everyday Evalyn sends her henchmen out hunting unicorns. Her henchmen are two tall green goblins named Crab and Goil. While out in the forest they ride these black, dragon like creatures. Once they locate a group of unicorns, they burst into action chasing them down. When they get close, they have these snake-like spears that they hurl at the unicorns. Once the spears get close to the unicorn, they come alive and wrap around the unicorn’s legs immobilizing them. The captured unicorns are then put in a net and dragged back to Evalyn’s secret lair where she prepares to pull out their horns for her potion.
After examining all the clues Nina and Lula have decided they need to scout the Whispering Woods. They decide to follow a group of unicorns that are going out to the Whispering Woods to take a nap. Everything seems calm and normal until Crab and Goil jump out from behind an elder tree and begin to chase the unicorns.
That is when Lula and Nina spring into action and start chasing after the goblins. Lula says, “Should we fuse our powers together and destroy those goblins?”
Nina replies to Lula, “No we need to find out where they have taken the other unicorns, so we can rescue them, we should just follow them for now.” Suddenly Nina hears a familiar voice scream. Crab and Goil have captured a young unicorn named Anna, she is Nina’s little sister. It is very hard for Nina, but she manages to stay calm and follows the goblins to the lair. Lula notices that Nina’s tail is swinging fast, this is a sign that Nina is very mad. Lula turns to Nina and tries to comfort her and assure her everything will be all right. As they follow the two goblins, they soon enter the Endless Caves.
Nina and Lula follow the goblins into the Endless Caves. Once they enter, they find all the unicorns locked in cages. They also see a masked person stirring a caldron in the center of the cave. Nina asks, “Who is that?”
Lula replies, “More importantly, what’s in the caldron?”
When suddenly the masked person yells out, “Crab, Goil! Do we have enough unicorns to finish my potion?”
Lula’s says, “I know that voice, that is my sister behind that mask.”
Nina and Lula jump out from behind a bolder and yell, “Release those unicorns!”
Evalyn looks up and says, “Sister, you have found me. Oh, and who is your friend? I could use another unicorn horn.”
Nina jumps up and states, “I am the great Defender Unicorn. Now release those unicorns!”
The goblins soon begin to attack Nina and Lula, hurling their snake spears at them. Dodging the spears while firing spells at the two goblins Nina takes out Goil with a fire blast, from her horn and Lula takes out Crab with a sparkle blast, from her wand.
“Enough!” says Nina, your henchmen are gone witch, now give up.
“Ha!” says Evalyn, “You can’t stop me, you are not strong enough.”
Lula and Nina use a combined blast of fire and ice, but Evalyn just laughs. Evalyn then retaliates with a spell of her own, poisoned razor leaves. A direct hit on the two friends, they are so weak now and cannot move. “Now you can watch me remove your friend’s horns to make me young again.” says Evalyn.
Evalyn walks over to Anna and grabs her horn and begins to pull it out, Anna is screaming in pain. “Nooooooo!” Yells Nina, “That is my sister. Leave her alone.”
“Excellent!” says Evalyn as the horn is removed. The removal of a unicorn horn causes an eternal sleep to overcome unicorns. In Nina’s rage she finds the power to get up and use a spell to help Lula. Nina cannot do this alone.
“Foolish girls, you can’t stop me. You may as well lay down and wait your turn.” Says Evalyn.
Nina begins to glow brighter and brighter. “What is happening?!” says Evelyn. She fires another spell at Nina and Lula, to no avail.
“Get on my back Lula I have a plan. We need to combine our powers for an ultimate rainbow blast. Together they glow even brighter when suddenly, they hit Evalyn with the ultimate rainbow blast. Nina and Lula collapse, when they awake, they notice the mask and Annas horn on the ground where Evalyn once stood. “Oh, my I have to get Anna’s horn back in or she will sleep forever.” said Nina.
“Here Nina take Anna and her horn back home I will free the other unicorns and be right behind you.” says Lula.
After freeing the unicorns and returning home with Anna. Lula informs Nina that returning unicorn’s horns is one of the most difficult potions to make, one of the ingredients is very difficult to get. “What do we need, and where do I need to go?” asks Nina.
“Tears from a loved one, a leaf from the tallest elder tree, and a speed berry found only in fearful cave on top of stormy mountain. The berry is very difficult to obtain, you must be brave and pure of heart or fearful cave will drive you mad.” says Lula.
“I can do it, let’s go!” says Nina. Lula collects Nina’s tears.
“I will get the leaf, but you must retrieve the berry on your own.” Lula says. “Be careful on your trip you must be brave and not get sucked in by Fearful Caves tricks, we can’t lose you too. retrieve the berry and come back home.”
Climbing Stormy Mountain is very difficult and exhausting. Nina is blasted with wind, rain, sleet, and snow, finally she arrives at the entrance to Fearful Cave. A creepy voice says, “Enter child if you dare.” Followed by a very creepy and evil laugh.
Nina enters the cave when all her fears are realized, but she continues to push through. Suddenly she sees that Anna will never wake up, Nina lays down and starts to cry. After some time goes by Nina works up the courage to stand. She yells out to the cave, “This is not real, you cannot fool me. Show me the berries, I have to save my sister!”
A light shines down on the Speed Berry Bush, quickly she collects the berries. She takes off at a sprint out of the cave racing down the mountain back to their home. Nina arrives home with the berries and gives one to Lula. “Go, stay with Anna while I make the potion. I will have it mixed up shortly. Nina are you ready? I have finished mixing up the potion. Do you have the horn?”
“Yes, I am ready what do we do?” Nina replies.
“Hold the horn in place while I poor the potion on Anna.” says Lula. Slowly Anna starts to wake up.
“What happened Nina? How did we get home?” asked Anna once she awakens. Nina proceeds tells her the entire story. After defeating Evalyn we released the other unicorns and brought you home. Then Lula and I set out on another adventure to get the ingredients for the potion to return your horn. Lula collected my tears and the elder leaf, while I went to stormy mountain to get the speed berries and now you are awake and safe. By working together, we were able to defeat Evalyn and save all of the unicorns. Now everyone is safe, and can live happily ever after
