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.”

Mrs. Fishly smiled warmly at her son and stroked her hand though his hair...

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 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...

Telling Stories

Obviously, someone had taken the effort to make sure that he felt at ease and welcomed. River jumped up onto the crate and tugged hard. He heard the soft tinkle of a bell ring in the distance and some footsteps approaching. The door opened to reveal the...
