Was it real? Did I really see that? Day dreaming again? well possibly, since I spent most of my real life wishing I was in the other realm where fantasy as we know it, is indeed reality.
Getting down from the tree, I caught sight of it again, gossamer wings flashing against the moonlight. In a flash it was gone. I spent a lot of time in "my" tree, I felt closer to my dreams up there somehow. Now I know for sure that this is not normal behaviour for an eleven year old girl who should be skipping ropes and playing dolls, but I was Queen of the Fairies really, and had been sent to my family by mistake.
Now I sit in my tree waiting for the Fairies to take me back to my Faerie kingdom, as they didn't know where I'd gone, so I'm trying to help them find me by sitting in "my " tree, waiting for the day I will resume my rightful place in Faerie land.
Again I see the flash of gossamer, I see faerie dust falling, falling on ME!! Can this be it ? Surely it must be, my skin is sparkling as if dusted with diamonds... I'm falling falling falling.... or am I flying? I am filled with expectation, I'm on my way, aren't I?
