Side Challenge; Childrens’ Songs
IN ORDER TO DISTRACT YOU FROM MY EXTREME FAIL OF THE SEASONS CHALLENGE, I’LL PUT UP A LITTLE THING I WROTE WHILE STUCK ON THE BUS…
Ahem, the first of these installments is “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”
Challenge: Twinkle Twinkle
They sat beneath the summer sky, the hint of autumn carrying on the breeze. Never had the stars looked so mischevious than tonight, their twinkle winking down at the witch and her god. They sat under the starlight, watching through the mortals’ clouds at the pinpricks of brightness, far in the vast space beyond.
The witch stretched a hand toward the sky, pretending her fingers could grasp the stars and take them down to earth, she gazed at them through her digits, breathing a content sigh.
The god took the witch’s fingers between his own, and overlapped their hands, curling around the brightest cluster in the heavens. His hand lifted away, leaving behind five warm stones in her palm, each glowing with an inner fire that shone through with more colours than they could name.
Slowly, he placed one atop her finger, one around her neck, and two dangling from her ears.
The final, largest, smoothest, stone was carefully placed into her blind eye, behind the black lifted eyepatch, and it flared to life with a dazzling lightshow.
He traced her eyelid; “You are… the Witch of the Stars.”
Aww; a non-disturbing moment from my twisted fairytale series!
I don’t know, I think t’was time for a cute and pretty moment, purely for my flufftastic needs.
These are the things that make me happy on the inside that I’m a fantasy writer.
