She would nod. "EXACTLY! They live in the forest back there, and help protect our house from the other creatures back there...I saw it yesterday, and one of the adults helped bring me home. ...but if you close the fence, they won't be able to get in anymore, or do their unicorn magic on the house!"

"Dad's got plenty of enchantments on the house," she said. "We're perfectly safe. And you never questioned the safety of our house before today."
She would open her mouth to yell, but Charity had already finished. She would frown, like she couldn't believe it. "If bad things start happening, then they're your fault." She would turn and walk promptly back into the house, and up to her room into her bed.

She sighed. She pushed against the post again, just to be sure it wasn't going anywhere, before walking back into the House herself.
The next morning, Thomas walked into the Backyard and casually pushed on the fence post that should've let him free. It didn't budge. Thomas glared at the fence, then back at the house. "You've gotta be kidding me! Charity!" He kicked at the fence post, and then at a few other ones on either side of it.
He looked at it for a moment. He went down the left kicking each one, and pulling on them. Nothing budged, so he went down the right side, doing the same. About four fence posts down, one of them seemed like it could be coaxed into opening. "Possibly."
Thomas lifted the shovel with ease. He dug a bit under the fence post, and then placed the tip of the shovel underneath the fence post, and started pushing down on the handle, hoping to snap the fence post... and not the shovel.
"Come on...." he said through gritted teeth. He heard more snapping and eventually, the fencepost would fly up a few inches. Thomas put the shovel to the side and pulled up on the fence post with his hands, trying to leave it intact on the fence, and just sort of hinged up near the top.
