As revenge for killing their king, they disappeared and decided not to help the Dutch farmers with their work. It’s been said that a Dutch Muggle has spotted gnomes! We didn’t know much about it, so the Paw Print decided to send one of their amazing reporters to the Netherlands. Of course, the head editor asked permission from Professor Missa Matz for this little field trip.
Since there is no greater news then some little gnome gossip, the Gryffindor Head of House granted the Paw Print a field trip to the Netherlands. To put things short, selected members of the Paw Print were selected to go to the Netherlands to interview this Muggle that spotted the gnomes, and to try and find the gnomes themselves.
As Head Editor, Fumei handpicked her fellow companions to come with her to the Netherlands. Fumei decided on taking Hailey Potter with her, because with Hailey at her side, the article(s) could be edited on the spot. Things can’t be any easier than that. Besides Hailey, Fumei also selected Sierra Potter and Cinder McAllister. These two would be perfect for making beautiful snapshots of the gnomes. They had to have some proof of the gnomes when they got back!
In the Netherlands, it was easy to locate the Muggle who saw the gnome. For some reason, it had become a whole nutjob story in the Netherlands. A local newspaper and a gossip newspaper both interviewed the Muggle.
The Muggle told us that centuries ago, gnomes lived peacefully with humans. They helped the farmers around on their farms and all was well.
One day, a hunter from a different village appeared and killed the Gnome King Kyrie, the king of all gnomes. The gnomes were devastated and disappointed in the Muggles. Because of this, they decided to leave the Netherlands.
The Muggle was surprised to spot the gnome. “I was walking with some client from work, and they spotted this small hat near a fly Amanita (a kind of mushroom). I didn’t dare to say anything to it and walked away quickly. But I’m sure it was a gnome!” the muggle said.
To be sure that the gnomes are back in the Netherlands indeed, we went on our own little investigation. We discovered the fly Amanita where the Muggle spotted the gnome. During the day, we spotted no gnomes, but we decided to come back during the night. As we learned during our investigations, in the past, the gnomes appeared in the night. They did the work for the farmers during the night and slept during the day to prevent Muggles from discovering them. Little did that help them!
Our efforts were rewarded! We found a gnome indeed! And it appears to be a friendly gnome. The gnome told us he was curious of how the Netherlands was. He had heard stories of the Netherlands and stories of how their king came to an end. He wanted to see the country that killed their beloved king with his own eyes.
We asked the gnome if there were more gnomes coming, but he told us that he will be leaving the Netherlands soon again. He didn’t like how it all changed. It didn’t look like how he had pictured it.
(inside information; Fumei got back alive, even though Hailey Potter was on the verge of killing her, because she dragged her away from her beloved)
