#SOL16 Day 29
Continuing with yesterday's slice...
Long, long ago there was a land full of tree fairies. Although no one had ever seen one, the old folk would tell stories of magic and lights. It was said that when the moon came out each night, that one only had to make a wish and that a tree fairy would grab the wish and carry it up to the moon. One night as her family took their evening walk, Sue Ellen saw the moon and remembered her grammy telling the story. So she closed her eyes, and thought, "I wish I could fly." No sooner had the wish left her trembling lips then she began to feel the leaves swirl beneath her feet. The winds danced around her ankles and she felt herself being pulled up off the ground.
Sue Ellen couldn't be sure if it was the wind that carried her or something else. A faint light could be seen around her scuffed up tennis shoes. Was it just an ordinary lightning bug? The kind that she would run after and put in an old mason jar? She tried to capture the light between her hands but it swirled to and fro. This wasn't an ordinary lightning bug. Could it be a real tree fairy? The glow became brighter as it circled Sue Ellen's head.
If you read this slice, could you let me know what you think? I would love to continue this and see where the story takes me.
