Petula Pumpkin was a quite clever girl, so it was with much confidence that she waited patiently with the rest of the prize winners at the elaborate double doors of the "Chocolate Room". Without a doubt, the entire chocolate factory owned by the mysterious chocolatier Mr. Willy Wonka had been a sight to behold---and taste, for much was edible---but this particular room held the secret to his newest and greatest invention ever. Recently, there had been whispered tales of a chocolate so delightful, so exquisite, and so unique that millions would scramble for just one bite.

Petula would be the first to taste it, of that she was certain.

There were seven Golden Ticket winners, one of whom was Petula. The determined girl assessed her competition through lowered eyelashes. She would allow no other to reach the magnificent delicacy before she was able to pluck it from its hiding place. Frowning inwardly, Petula pasted a small smile on her face for the benefit of the girl named Veruca---who apparently liked the sound of her own voice---and waved her fingers daintily in an insincere greeting as she did so.

Standing beside Veruca was Violet, chomping on a piece of gum and shifting her weight from foot to foot. Some kid---Charlie, maybe---and his grandpa were chattering happily, and another boy was munching on some candy, his arms filled with treats collected from other parts of the factory. Two more kids rounded out the group, one of the pair seemingly more interested in finding a television rather than an elusive piece of chocolate candy. The accompanying adults stood around making polite small talk.

Petula was the first to hear the click of the lock on the door disengaging. She was stealthily edging her way forward when suddenly the tall doors flew open and the sweet scent of chocolate and sugary confections burst forth through the grand entrance. Petula's eyes widened at her first glimpse of the spectacular room.

Lily Appleton narrowed her dark brown eyes as she studied the room before her. It was the Chocolate Room, and it was aptly named. Everything around her seemed edible, and the very air seemed alive with flavor. Lily suppressed an urge to give those candy cane trees a lick, to eat a mouthful of chocolate dirt, to munch of sugary grass.

After all, the chocolate fountain, chocolate dirt, candy flowers, candy cane trees, and sugary grass were not what Lily had come for. They were not the reason she had spent months voraciously consuming candy bars in hope of finding a golden ticket.

No, she was here for one thing, and one thing only. Chocolate. Not just any chocolate, but the chocolate. The most special, most delectable, most precious chocolate in the world. A chocolate so divine it was said Willy Wonka himself hadn't tried it, for fear of becoming addicted to the heavenly taste.

The chocolate had never been sampled before. Lily craved the chocolate with intensity. She would find this chocolate, and she would have that first bite. Not only that, but if the plan went well... Lily fingered the secret pocket inside of her shirt, just big enough to hold a candy bar. After all, whoever possessed such a chocolate would not only spoil their taste buds, but could become rich. People were already trying to pay millions of dollars for one bite. How much would they pay for a whole bar?

Lily smiled and withdrew her dark, slightly pudgy hand. She slowly began to wander towards the chocolate waterfall, feigning interest. Giving a few "Ooh!"s and "Ah!"s every once in a while, she tried to look as nonchalant as possible. After all, who wouldn't be amazed and intrigued by a giant waterfall made out of chocolate? Part of Lily wished she actually could study the waterfall, and perhaps eat a bit while she was at it. Lily shoved that part away. She had a job to do, and she was more interested in what was behind the waterfall than the waterfall itself. What better place to hide chocolate?

As she walked casually towards the waterfall, Lily carefully watched the others. She had already studied them intensely, and had deduced that none of them had any secret intentions. For that matter, none of them seemed to have more wits than a penny. They didn't seem to care about anything but eating up the Chocolate Room. The Gloop boy for one looked as though he was minutes away from a heart attack, with the amount he ate. Lily gave a sigh of relief, sure that no one else was also after her precious chocolate.

Glancing back one last time at the others, Lily cautiously made her way towards the waterfall, walking on the banks of the chocolate river. Squinting, she thought she could make out a small room behind the torrents of chocolate. Lily gave a small smile, ducked, and leapt through the downpour of chocolate.

Petula stared opened-mouthed at the explosion of color---mint green grass, tufts of blue spun sugar, translucent lollipop flowers in every hue imaginable, trees with bark of chocolate and caramel---it was far beyond her wildest expectations. But the most fascinating sight of all was a towering chocolate waterfull, its creamy rivulets plunging into a chocolate river. She breathed in the luscious scent and was nearly lost in the experience until she was rudely jolted back to reality by a shove to the shoulder. The petulant Veruca attempted to push her aside but Petula would have none of it! She huffed and elbowed her way back to the front then darted into the fantastical room with the frenzied children.

Where to begin? The determined girl feigned rushing about as not to attract notice, but in reality was scoping the place for the perfect hiding spot for something so precious. Petula plucked the petal from a purple candy flower, nibbling on it as she thought. The tart grape flavor was quite delicious and difficult to reconcile with how life-like the flower looked. Peering through the candied leaves that dangled from the variety of flowers, she studied the pastel green grass for any sign of a trap door.

Frowning, then catching herself as Mr. Willy Wonka spied her and raised an eyebrow at finding one of his esteemed guests anything but giddy with delight, she beamed at the candymaker and provided him with an affected giggle. The moment he turned away, twirling his walking stick and whistling as he skipped through his candy land, Petula was back to business.

It was while she was crawling around on hands and knees pulling all the caps off the strawberry flavored toadstools---the hollow stems would make the perfect hiding place---that she spied Augustus, his hands and face covered in melted chocolate. Petula drew in a sharp breath. Perhaps she had underestimated him. Was he looking for her chocolate?

She had little time to gauge the situation before the boy had plunged into the chocolate river, eliciting shrieks and gasps from all those standing on the candy-covered shore. Where was he going? Had he seen something Petula had not? She scanned the area, certain she had glimpsed movement by the waterfall. Hands on her hips, she narrowed her eyes as she studied the other children---wait! Hadn't there been six other ticket holders? Petula counted again. She turned and looked around the vast room, spying no one among the sugary forest or colorful field of candied flowers.

Someone had slipped off unnoticed.

That girl! What is her name?

Petula chewed her lip in frustration.

Lily! That's it!

Crossing her arms, Petula glared suspiciously at the scrumptious chocolate waterfall.

Is Lily after my chocolate?

Lily landed on solid ground directly underneath the waterfall. The liquid chocolate poured down on Lily's head, dousing her dark brown hair in chocolate. How am I going to get this off? Nothing screamed suspicious more than a girl with her hair covered in chocolate. It was gooey and sticky as well, as it climbed down her face, into her ears, and, not by accident, into her mouth.

The chocolate was delicious, but Lily was intent on getting out from directly under the waterfall as soon as possible. Her hair didn't want to part with the sticky chocolate, and Lily had to give it a good yank to separate it from the waterfall. It fell limply, soaked in chocolate, to her head and shoulders. Lily felt the warm stickiness stain her shirt, and sighed. She had not thought out her plan as well as she had believed.

The good thing about the plan was that she was certain she wasn't being followed, for none of the others seemed to have any wits in their heads. Lily couldn't see past the curtain of falling chocolate, but gave a smirk anyway, certain no one had even noticed she was gone.

After that small moment of victory, Lily examined her surroundings. She was in a small cave of sorts, and the walls looked as though they were made out of candy. Lily couldn't help but give the walls a lick, and her mouth rejoiced in the taste of caramel, with swirls of butterscotch. Leaving smears of chocolate on the wall, for she was still soaked in it, Lily pulled back and examined the room further. There seemed to be nothing else. The cave was completely bare, with nothing inside of it. Lily pressed her hands against the smooth, cold walls, feeling for a hidden door.

She found none. The walls were smooth all the way through. Lily's mouth turned down in a grimace as she pounded the wall in frustration. She began knocking on it, trying to see if it was hollow. It wasn't. The knocks indicated that the walls were completely solid, all the way through.

Lily bit her lip and tried to think of something else to do. Perhaps the chocolate waterfall was a little too obvious. After all, Willy Wonka would've made sure to hide it well. Lily fingered her chocolate hair and wished she would have thought over everything before settling on the waterfall. Reluctantly, Lily leapt through the waterfall, feeling the chocolate pounding on her head, and barely cleared the chocolate river. Looking around, Lily saw Willy Wonka staring straight at her. Smoothing down her chocolate hair in vain, Lily bent down and began rapidly consuming the grass, putting on an eager, hungry look that wasn't very hard to fake.

Lily scanned the other children. Did anyone see me?

As the crowd fretted and worried about the fate of Augustus Gloop---who now seemed to be stuck in some sort of vertical tube, whining and crying as Mr. Wonka reassured the group that the boy would be just fine---Petula concerned herself with far more important things, such as the location of her precious chocolate and the reappearance of one chocolate-covered girl by the name of Lily. Petula chewed her bottom lip as she shrewdly studied the girl who was most certainly now her nemesis. Greed and selfishness welled up inside the young Petula and she stomped her foot in anger.

"Oooomphf!"

The unexpected sound startled the distracted girl. Petula let out a small shriek and jumped back, nearly falling in the chocolate river herself. Flailing her arms about like windmills, she managed to catch her balance, but not before she spotted a small man, not taller than her knee, jumping up and down holding his foot. She raised her eyebrows at the unusual fellow---not only did he have a bright orange complexion, but his hair was vivid green with a curl on top that matched those on the end of his tiny shoes.

"What...who...um...are you?" she asked rudely.

"He's an Oompa-Loompa," answered Mr. Wonka as the tiny man limped away. The small crowd, having been alerted by Petula's cry, stared after him then burst forth with questions and comments, badgering the candy man, talking over top one another.

"A what?"

"An Oompa-Loompa?"

"How strange!"

"An odd sort, yes?"

Their host explained to his mostly cynical audience that he had brought the Ommpa-Loompas over from Loompaland---a place that one adult vehemently insisted simply did not exist. Her impassioned speech was suddenly interrupted by a chorus of voices bursting into song. From across the chocolate river, dozens of Oompa-Loompas sang as they happily tended to the candied landscape, carting mounds of chocolate and sugary treats in colorful wheelbarrows. Mr. Wonka's guests ooohed, aaahed, pointed, and nudged each other they pondered the fascinating orange people with the bright green hair.

"Daddy I want an Oompa-Loompa! I want an Ommpa-Loomp now!"

Veruca Salt put up such a fuss that it provided the perfect distraction for Petula to sneak away and follow the limping Oompa-Loompa. Certainly if anyone knew where the most delectable of chocolates was hidden, it would be this funny little man. Petula looked toward her auntie, a kindly woman who had enthusiastically agreed to accompany her niece while her parents tended the family farm. She was chatting happily to Charlie's grandpa. Satisifed she wasn't seen, Petula glanced over her shoulder at Lily, sticking her tongue out at the girl for good measure.

No one seemed to have noticed Lily, and she smirked in satisfaction. Some boy had gotten himself stuck in chocolate, which only proved to Lily that the others were a bunch of idiots. After all, hadn't Willy Wonka warned the boy?

Except...was that girl, Petunia, looking at her? Lily squinted, and it almost seemed as though Petunia wasn't quite as idiotic as the rest. Her eyes seemed more alert, her expression more thoughtful. Nonsense, the girl hasn't a wit to her, Lily told herself. After all, Lily was the only one who had even tried to search for the chocolate. But look how far that got you. Maybe this Petunia girl is smarter, prettier, and overall better. Lily scowled at the thought, glaring at Petunia as if it was her fault the thought has whispered in her mind.

Lily turned where attention away from Petunia and looked around the room to see if anyone had noticed her disappearance. She still wasn't sure whether Petunia had or not, but her real concern was Willy Wonka. He, like everyone else, was making a fuss over some tiny men. They looked rather fake, with their orange complexion and green hair. The fact that pretty much everyone seemed to believe Willy's fantastical tales of 'Loompaland' proved the intelligence of her comrades. They were obviously fake. "Hey you," she said, kicking a tiny man in green and orange, "Hello, robot!"

The man looked up at her with a startled expression and scuttled off. "Lily," she heard a voice say, and looked over to see Willy Wonka staring at her, a chastening expression on his face. "The Oompa-Loompas are living beings. Do not harm them. Come, hear more tales of Loompaland, and you will see the hardships they have faced."

Lily tried to look as sorry as she could, but she wanted to burst out laughing. Obviously Willy Wonka was pulling some kind of joke. There was no way these tiny men were real. And didn't he say something about there being no adults? Now how could that even be possible? I mean, who's supposed to have the kids? Lily thought. The whole thing was ridiculous. Still, she needed to get Willy Wonka off her back.

"I'm sorry, Mr. Wonka," she told him, "I was wrong and I will never do it again. And I would love to hear one of your tales, of course!" Adults always seemed to fall for that particular phrasing, and Willy Wonka nodded, beckoning her. She put on a smile and pretended to be interested as the man rambled about a land that existed only in his imagination.

It wasn't hard to slip away, and she soon did just that, following the nearest Oompa-Loompa. After all, even if they were fakes, they worked in the chocolate room every day. Maybe they're going to see if their chocolate is safe at this very moment, she thought, and hurried after the nearest one.
