The End

Outside the nursery window, the first flakes of winter started to tumble gently from the sky. Jack Frost started each day with an icy sketch of frosty streaks across the outside of the glass. Each day the two friends stayed in the nursery and played by the warmth of the fire. In the evenings, River would continue to read stories aloud and then he would finish his secret notebook whilst the boy fell asleep.

Jonathan awoke one morning...

Sadly, the good weather could never continue forever. The warm balmy summer days gave way to the first mild evenings of autumn and the nights gradually became longer and colder. The mornings were greeted with a heavy dew that covered the grass and shrouded spider webs with a magnitude of diamond droplets. The leaves turned brown and began to tumble from the trees, covering the lawn with a brittle carpet of brown that crunched when the two...

The weather continued to get warmer during the summer months. With every day of better weather, Jonathan’s consumption eased. There were no longer any chilly damp winds that caused his throat to ache or his lungs to burst. There were no longer any foggy mornings that caused his breathing to labour.

The mellow days of spring soon gave way to the balmy months of the summer. The sun beamed down upon the ground and the days grew hot and longer. The air was dry and the garden tempted the young child to visit and explore.

“Can we visit the garden soon?” Jonathan asked Mrs. Fishly, “I’m feeling a lot better and I would love to find some elves.”

Hally had a response to her letter by the next morning suggesting that she meet with Master Ito at a small coffee shop on Quarry Hill, the Carpe Diem.  It was a small place that Hally had never patroned before.  It was quaint, nearly overshadowed by the soon to be reopened Cocoa Java, but its homey feel was accentuated by the thick aroma of coffee that wafted from everything in the tiny cafe.

The boy was standing under the elevated tramway when he saw his friend, Beryl, coming towards him. A wide grin lit up his face as he yelled “Watch this!”.
“What?” asked the cat as he reached the lad, then followed with a soft “Oh…”.
The boy had lifted up a strange, bulky looking pistol, pointing it up underneath the rails and pulled the trigger. There was an odd, muted sound from the gun then a sharp bang some way off and an...
