Tony couldn't believe his eyes because the man was very small. He was as small as a volleyball and looked very old.
"Who are you?" Tony asked.
The small man didn't answer. He kept staring at Tony.
Tony asked again. "Who are you? Are you a ...human?"
The man started speaking.
“My name is Asterisk. I live in this school. I know why you are here. You want to go to your classroom, right?”
Tony was frightened. The small man seemed to know him. But it was impossible. He had never seen the man. And the man was too small to be a human being!
"I am not a human. I am a fairy. I am not visible to humans but it looks like you can see me. You must be a special boy." Asterisk said.
Tony asked Asterisk.
"I need to go to my classroom to get my Garakuta. May I?"
"I can let you go into the school. But you have to go to the classroom by yourself."
"What do you mean?"
"There are many creatures inside the school. Some are not very friendly. You've got to make your way to the classroom by yourself."
