A tale and a treat I have for you, a twist familiar, but a story new. It begins long ago in a place and time not yours to know.
Riddle, it may seem, but I tell it true, this fable familiar but new to you. So began our journeys end this story of nursery and liars den. Word of caution, words of warning, you might be a character within this yarn. So listen attentively if you care to return or I leave you behind to be butters churn.
No need to get ahead of ourselves, child; now, now calm yourself. I jest. Consider it part of the story dress. Remember, I’m the Woodland Fairy, the very best! Doesn’t that put your fear at rest?
Let’s turn the page in my magic brew, so I may bring this wildly exciting story to you.
Once in town, I walked the sidewalks to learn the area before discovering an unassuming restaurant serving breakfast.
The atmosphere was calm, and the room relatively empty so I sat down in an inconspicuous corner table where I might go unnoticed.
My server who also happened to be the owner, brought me coffee and an artful array of toast to get me started. I felt relaxed for the first time in weeks, I knew this would be my favorite hideout moving forward.
To my delight, the menu splashed a delicious photo of the shop's special, steak and eggs. I was in heaven, and my stomach was willing to forgive me for the lack of feeding these last few days.
I was content with paying my bill and heading back home.
Until rounding the corner where I ran into Jaclyn UN-expectantly.
